Thomson should feel very proud of what they do as an organization to make these trips so memorable. When I started out on this plan I thought it was a lot of money for what we were doing but I assumed Thomson would be one of the better companies to do business with. As it turned out it was incredible value for the money and everywhere we went Thomson was constantly recognized as the best which made all of us very happy we were with Thomson.
The Safari portion was a completely different experience but the way we were treated no different. Makinda, our head guide for this portion had an attachment for the land, his country and the animals he showed us in Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti. We were so well looked after and so educated about what we had seen that it will be a life experience for all of us. If I had to do it over again would I change anything? No.
