Excellent service when booking and they followed up on every detail after our trip. We booked with Leah and I felt it really was important to her that we had an amazing trip. We will certainly book with them again.

Safari Planning Made Easy

My planning started a good eleven months before the trip. While I had the basic structure of the trip in mind, Willow from Planet Africa Safaris had many helpful recommendations and my dream trip was set to reality quickly. I was impressed on how fast she always responded to my every inquiry, as if my trip was the only one she was working on. The airline changed the international flight twice and each time Willow juggled many bookings to accommodate the new schedule. I was lucky that the airline did not change the schedule too wildly and, more importantly, I was lucky that Willow was the one orchestrating all the planning, bookings, flight schedule, and all the details I didn’t think of. On the trip, the logistics flowed smoothly as the Mara River flows and each stop offered new and different experiences: From bush experience at Rekero to solitude at Naboisho Conservancy, from equatorial forest canopy at Rubondo Island to the open plains at Namiri Plains. By the way, this was the second trip Planet Africa Safaris organised for me. And for my next Kenya and Tanzania trip, I will call Planet Africa Safaris, first and only.

Outstanding from planning and including the safari

Can't say enough about Planet Africa. From the initial contact with the company to the actual safari, nearly every detail was perfect. The representative listened and worked with me and the itinerary was edited a lot of times, even worked around the time zones and called me so we could chat and I could ask more questions. Her recommendations of the camps were right on. The logistics of booking everything including flights and beach time in Zanzibar went according to plan, with someone always waiting for us with a warm, welcoming smile. At first I was hesitant of wiring money abroad, but the company lived up to my expectations and all wiring of money was quickly communicated with me so I knew quite soon after the transfer was sent that they had received the money. Would I change anything? No, it was a perfect holiday! Thank you Planet Safari for making our once in a lifetime trip an awesome experience.

Planet Africa Safaris created the best trip to Tanzania anyone could want - excellent service!

We returned from Tanzania last week and have to give Planet Africa Safaris credit for delivering a fantastic vacation for us. From the beginning, their communication was excellent. I had a million questions and each one was answered quickly and professionally. I was apprehensive about wiring money in advance but Planet Africa Safaris delivered everything they promised. Someone greeted us at each stop and each tented camp and lodge was just as described.

Our guide was knowledgable and friendly and in the first day, we saw more animals than we ever expected including two leopard sightings. We stayed at Oliver's Camp and Rhotia Valley Camp in the Tarangire / Lake Ngorongoro Crater area - both great spots. Be prepared for an interesting (and bumpy) ride to Rhotia Valley. We flew to Olakira Camp in the northern Serengeti and enjoyed the luxurious life in the bush. Imagine jumping up from the lunch table to watch a river crossing in your front yard! Again, we had an expert guide and saw many more animals, spending as much time as we wanted taking pictures and simply watching.

We wrapped up our trip at Baraza Resort in Zanzibar. Total luxury - nothing more to say. The food, accommodations, staff, beach and water activities were unbelievable.

I am very happy we chose Planet Africa Safaris for this unforgettable trip.
