5/5

After just returning from 2 weeks in Tanzania, I wanted to share my experience with Savannah Explorers for prospective travelers considering a safari. I apologize for the lengthy review, however my intent is to provide a review with some substance and specificity, since I personally find these kinds of reviews most helpful when planning my trips and adventures.

For perspective, I am a 38 year old female who has lived in 3 continents (including Africa) and has traveled to over 50 countries across 6 continents. I have been on Safari at least a dozen times in Kruger, Maasai Mara, Chobe, Okavango Delta and now the Serengeti. Prior to booking our trip, I spent countless hours researching the internet, reading reviews on multiple sites, networking with locals and reaching out to 20+ tour operators in East Africa before ultimately deciding to move forward booking with Savannah Explorers. Now that our trip has ended and I’ve had a week to marinate on how things went, I am so beyond pleased with my decision for many reasons. To highlight a few:

1. Office staff and Administrative logistics: Albert was exceptional in executing our plans down to every last detail. He didn’t try to encourage me to do an expensive Safari, and even when I asked about a particular group of camps, he was frank that they were very expensive and suggested a few alternatives if we wanted to keep costs down. I got quotes for the exact same itinerary and camps from about 10 other tour operators, and from the start his was lowest, beating some by close to $2000pp! For the brief amount of time Albert was out of the office, Brighton jumped in and didn’t skip a beat. I didn’t have to re-explain my plans, he wasn’t confused about what had/hadn’t been coordinated, and frankly if he hadn’t told me I was talking to him and not Albert, I probably never would have known! Particular room requests, timing and scheduling of a very busy itinerary, matching the perfect guide for our 2 person private tour, arranging internal flights then confirming and re-arranging as needed, every single detail was perfectly planned, and happened exactly as planned and as I hoped. They even helped make local calls during business hours while I was asleep in California to coordinate other parts of our vacation that had nothing to do with Savannah Explorers. Every question I had, every correspondence I sent them, they got back to me within an hour with all of the information I needed, plus some. All of their advice was completely spot on, and since we used all of their advice to guide our packing, planning and timing of the entire vacation, we can honestly say there is nothing we wished we had/hadn’t packed or had done differently in terms of the overall itinerary. Everything was ABSOLUTELY PERFECT.

2. The Guide: I have not met any of the other guides at Savannah Explorers, but we had Abia and I’m not sure we could have had a better one. He was timely, friendly, knowledgeable, attentive, personable, funny and made our entire experience absolutely amazing. We started our Safari with a stranger, and ended it feeling he was like family. Literally we have not a single complaint nor even constructive feedback about his guiding, driving or general presence/demeanor. In my experience, the quality of a guide can either make or break a safari, no matter the location. Abia educated us throughout about the animals and the landscape, spotted animals we never would have seen, listened astutely on the radio for what was going on in the area, and persevered everyday to make sure the day ended with some unique sighting or experience. I told Abia my goal was to be able to spot a leopard during the day, and for the other female traveling with me to see the Big 5 on her first Safari, and he executed by Day 3! He picked perfect locations and set up bush breakfasts and lunches with presentations that would challenge 5 star hotels. When departing from the Kogatende airstrip there were issues with our flight and we were delayed about an hour and a half, and he waited with us the entire time even though I’m sure he would have preferred to start his 8ish hour drive back home. He also let us use his cell phone to coordinate airport transfers in Zanzibar, and when our flight was delayed then re-routed via another airline, he remained in contact with the driver in Zanzibar to keep him in the loop about our arrival time. We love Abia!!

3. The vehicle: Another aspect that can either make or break a Safari in my opinion. Everything was as promised, exceptionally clean and exceeded our expectations. Electric outlets were available and in working condition throughout, which was clutch when needing to recharge camera and phone batteries after 8 hours of pictures. There was more than enough bottled water to last all 6 days, and remained cold in the fully functioning fridge in the jeep. Binoculars were provided and in working condition, and all the door locks worked properly (also clutch when stopping at park entrances for QUICK permits/restroom breaks, and being able to leave all of our luggage and camera equipment safely locked in the car). We got a flat tire, and the jeep had all of the necessary and functioning tools available so that Abia was able to change it out on a slatted dirt road within 20 mins and we were back on our way.

All in all, I cannot say enough about the overwhelmingly amazing and positive experience we had with Savannah Explorers. I don’t consider myself to be a picky person perse, just particular when I know what I want and what I am looking for when planning an (expensive) trip such as this. When booking a lengthy trip to Africa, one has to expect that something is bound to fall through, not deliver as promised, not work, not be available as it should, details and communication get lost in the shuffle, or some other unforeseen random act of nature create some irritating roadblock. With each day that passed on our Safari, I wondered when the bomb would drop…….and it never did. Savannah Explorers delivered on everything they promised, and frankly exceeded my expectations. I would HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend them for anyone planning a Safari, whether you’re a first timer or whether you’re an experienced Safari enthusiast. Feel free to reach out to me privately if you would like any additional info or details! Thank you Albert, Brighton, Abia and Savannah Explorers for making our dream vacation everything we hoped it would be and more!
