My old friend from university Erik Berkelmans advised me to ignore travel agencies and instead directly contact Christopher in Arusha to make all arrangements for a safari holiday with my family of four (kids 12 and 10 years old). I am still grateful to Erik, since a good guide is the critical success factor for any safari trip. We ended up naming our safari 'cat counting season'; "You're very lucky" Christopher said on various encounters with leopards, cheeta's and lions. This might be, but I'm convinced that his talent and his network as a guide enforces a certain level of luck. Furthermore he's a great guy full of stories, fond of our kids, fluent in English and apparently a great tour operator since we spend our nights in amazing lodges and tented camps. And his price was equal to the offer we got from a Dutch travel agency.
We, a family with three children (12, 12, 13), had such a wonderfull Safari!We've planned the trip via e-mail with Christopher. He helped us to plan a trip that suited our wishes, always responding very adequate and quickly to our emails. He picked us up from the airport and arranged everything! He knows so much about nature and about the animals and their behaviour. He spotted animals that we would never have found by ourselves. We saw so many animals!! We stayed at several lodges and enjoyed all of them. All were very clean, with great food and services. Some had a swimming pool, but in the end tha't was not really necessary, because there was not so much time to swim and the temperature was not that high.The children had a great time as well, all day long trying to spot animals, they didn't get bored at all, they learned so much! After one week of Safari we went to Zanzibar to relax, Next time we would stay a bit longer on Sarafi. Such an amazing experience! If you're planning to go on a safari in Tanzania with your family: we would certainly advice "I dream of Africa" to you!
This is an opportunity you have to try. Best time of my life, fun and educational.
I had so much fun and learned so much.
