    The Thomson Safari team is amazing. While lodging, food and the wildlife define safari, it is the people who make it memorable. From the porters, chefs, waiters, and guards to your PHENOMENAL guides, Thomson really has succeeded at creating an inspirational and life-transforming experience. You have given me memories and inspiration to fuel a life of true adventure!

    We could go on to enumerate all the superlatives about your operations in Tanzania: the accommodations, the food, the camp crews, the vehicles, the excursions & activities in between animal viewing, the schedule..... you've got it figured out perfectly. But we can't say enough about your guides and your team in Arusha that make sure every detail is taken care of so that we get the most out of our visit and safari experience. I can't imagine having made this trip without them.

    Nothing got us ready for the Thomson Safari way of doing things. First class all the way. From our accommodations, to food, to our transportation in the new and top shelf Land Rovers. The Nyumbas are splendid. I slept like a baby every night!
