Five day safari experience
Travelling to Africa for the first time from Australia – this 5 day safari was definitely a highlight. We were met at the airport upon our arrival in Arusha and transferred to our hotel where we were met by Godson who provided us with a clear outline of the plans for the next few days.
Our safari began early the next day as we travelled to Lake Manyara for our first National Park which introduced to us to some of the wildlife in the area. The next day we spent many hours travelling towards the northern Serengeti with the hope of seeing the migration of the Wilderbeast. Wow!!! what an amazing experience when we got there quite late in the day and were able to witness thousands of these animals running towards the river. The following day we had a full day out in the Serengeti sighting lions, cheetahs, a leopard, as well as many more wilderbeast, elephants, zebras, giraffes and more. After 2 nights in the north, we made our way back down through central Serengeti and then visited Ngorongoro
Park on our last day before our return to Arusha.
There are many things that made this experience so wonderful, apart from the amazing wildlife. To start with our dealings with Noel in planning this safari – who was very accommodating and flexible in terms of helping us achieve our goal of making it to the very northern part of the Serengeti. Godson was so lovely and very keen to ensure that this experience would meet our expectations. Our guide Faragi was very knowledgeable and made sure that everything went to plan which meant some very long days of driving for him. Faragi looked after us beautifully and was very thoughtful and caring – particularly towards my elderly mother who was travelling with us.
Thank you all for a most memorable experience.
