Amani was our driver and guide during our safari to the National Parks. He also drove us to Tanga and to a place near Moshi for a hike. I've been to Tanzania several times, and I have never felt safer on the roads than when Amani was driving! He drives cautiously and defensively, which are rare traits amongst others on the roads in East Africa. On safari, he took time to learn what animals we really wanted to see and made sure we got to see them. He had lots of interesting facts about everything we saw. In addition to him being responsible and knowledgeable, he's a really fun person to hang out with. He's got a great sense of humor and wonderful stories to share! Our trip to Tanzania would have been incomplete without such a wonderful guide and companion.
Ombeni did a wonderful job arranging everything for the safari. Everything was planned out just as we wanted, and he worked hard to make sure that all our requests were accommodated. We had a tight budget and were able to stay comfortably within it.
Go to Tanzania! It is an amazing country - the people are wonderful, the scenery is gorgeous, and the animals are so much more interesting in their natural habitats! If you are settled on Tanzania, I can assure you that Ombeni, Amani, and the rest of the crew will take great care of you.
