The Trip was Amazing!

Hello, I want to share some of the many photos we took while on our safari trip with African Travel this past January & February. These are just a few of our favorites. We were especially lucky to catch the cheetahs in Amboseli and the lions at Lake Manyara. 

The trip was amazing! From the initial planning with Anais through our final departure from Arusha, everything ran like clockwork. We’ve done a good bit of traveling over the years, and this trip ranks with the best of the best. Thank you for taking such good care of us!

Our Unforgettable African Safari

Africa is a unique destination. Understanding the subtle differences among lodges and how to create a pleasant experience transferring between camps is harder than it looks. The experience of African Travel Inc has been invaluable in making our safaris easy and hugely enjoyable.


We have been on safaris to Southern Africa and Victoria falls, as well as East Africa and gorilla treks in Rwanda. The lodges and activities African Travel Inc selected for us have been uniformly wonderful. The itinerary they designed perfectly matched our desires, goals and budget.  They actually listen to us before they design our trips.

The most AWESOME trip I’ve ever taken!!   Tanzania – I will be back!!!

The 12 day safari in Tanzania  was the most AMAZING trip in my lifetime!  I have travelled quite a bit outside the U.S. including Kenya in 1996, to Australia a few years later and to several European countries.  I have never had such an awesome experience in any of my travels as this one!! Seeing the wildlife and just sitting and watching their behaviors was fascinating.

I cannot say enough good things about our guide, Ally Kileo.  He’s a native Tanzanian, lived in the United States for a few years, went to college to learn about wildlife, then moved back to his home in Tanzania to his love of being a safari guide.   He currently contracts with Kibo Safaris, LTD in Arusha, Tanzania.  He speaks excellent English, has unlimited knowledge and was always inviting questions, not only about the wildlife but also about culture, tribal traditions, anything & everything..  He could identify every bird, knew behaviors of the wildlife so well, that he relayed to us what “they were up to,” as we watched.  He educated us about the government of Tanzania, the school system, and the trust and love that Tanzanians have for each other and even strangers.  I’ve never been to a country where the people were SO friendly, happy, and welcoming.  They are peaceful people, extending great hospitality, and love Americans.

Accommodations were excellent!!!  I LOVED the tented camps!! 

There were numerous times on this trip that I was moved to tears.  I experienced the trip of my lifetime because the combination of experiences were so varied.  I loved not only learning about the different cultures, but also being able to participate in cultural activities.

The trip really could not have been better. Trip of a lifetime, although I hope you schedule more trips of a lifetime for us in the future. I am sure that you are dying to see 800 pictures or so. Thanks so much for putting this together for us; it was absolutely spectacular!!
