Dear Marc,

3 months have passed and I have just realised that we have not given you the feedback about our honeymoon in Tanzania and Zanzibar. Fear not, it was brilliant.

I must admit that we were greatly impressed with the level of timeliness and efficiency of the people who picked us up etc. at airports, hotels etc. That was a major positive and we were never left worrying about travel details.

The holiday itself was a dream come true. We saw some of the most beautiful wildlife in the world and words or pictures can never describe what one feels when a pride of 17 lions crosses your safari vehicle’s path in the Serengeti, or the sight of a Thompson’s Gazelle giving birth in the Ngorongoro Crater. Add to that the spectacular scenery, lovely weather and great people and you have the makings of a great holiday. Our safari guide Richard Urio (Roy’s) was excellent. Always patient and always ready to explain fine details. A dedicated person. Lodge accommodation was also fantastic and the food was delicious.

In Zanzibar we had a great time too. The 3 days in Ras Nungwi were three of the most relaxing ever and the perfect opportunity to unwind after one sitting down in a safari vehicle for one week! Stonetown was great too. The Tembo Hotel may not have a service of the level of the other places we stayed at, but it is clean, nicely decorated and also in an excellent location. Maya Tours gave us an excellent walking tour of Stone Town and a great spice tour.

We will recommend your company to any friends interested in travelling to Africa and look forward to returning one day!

Well, we have returned home safe from our honeymoon in Africa.  The trip was so amazing, it’s hard to put into words.  Everyone was unbelievably friendly and all of the transfers went smoothly.  The drivers and representatives were always on time and helpful.  Everything was perfect.

Regarding Roy Safaris, i was extremely pleased with their operation.  Having multiple vehicles in each of the parks made game spotting much easier as the drivers were able to communicate sightings with each other.  The vehicle was first class and our guide, Klamian, made our trip that much more special.  I met some of the other guides, and while they were all very nice, they weren’t as good as Klamian.  If you any very special clients, i would strongly recommend that you reserve Klamian for them.  He is wonderful.

I would also like to express special gratitude to you for assisting with our last minute request to transfer to Stone Town for our last night.  We are really happy we got to see Stone Town and the Serena was great!  We really enjoyed the shoppping and restaurants.  As far as the credit i am owed (for the difference between the price of the Serena and Ras Nungwi), please feel free to credit my Mastercard or send me a check in the mail, whichever is easiest for you.

Thanks again for the most wonderful honeymoon imaginable!

Dear Marc

Just returned from a wonderful honeymoon.
I have to thank you and all your colleagues for your great organisational skills.
All the connections worked perfectly.

Managed to get upgraded to Club on the way out-  Great start.
Safari was wonderful- Highlight was the staying at crater lodge-  stunning !
Zanzibar was just the tonic after 6 days on the dusty roads, with early starts – worth it though.  The wildlife was simply increadible.

Thankyou once again.

I would not hesitate to recommend you and your colleagues.

Kindest regards

Hi Marc,

This is just a quick note to thank you for organising a fantastic trip.

The whole thing went perfectly and we felt that we were in very capable hands the whole time.

All the camps were very impressive and we particularly loved Grumeti (though Manyara was a close second!). Ngorongoro was, of course, stunning…..

Anyway, we will certainly recommend you to others and will be in touch soon to organise our next safari!
