The Thistles Family
Jambo Brian and Kappia!
Our safari exceeded our expectations in every way. The quantity of game was memorizing! Our guide, Kappia, had instinctual knowledge of the terrain so he used this knowledge to bring us to some incredible sites that we experienced as a lone truck! Our guide was intuitive but empathetic to our wants and needs at all times. We are lucky to have the opportunity to visit Tanzania….and super lucky to have booked with Ecological Adventures!
The camp was splendid! I have worked in 5 star hotels; as it is my profession….I never anticipated such attention to detail at a campsite! White linen, silver service in the Serengeti! I certainly didn’t expect it…but how wonderful!Our expectations were exceeded at every turn! In retrospect, as a family of 4 including teenagers….we especially enjoyed the evening fire where the kids really let loose on the day. Kappia was open, and although he may have heard these questions a million times…knowledgeable, .attentive and engaging!How wonderful to interact with your children at this level; to see the most amazing show on earth and to have a guide that can sort it out, give it scientific names and background and relevance in our world today!
This tour was as instructional as we wanted it to be! Our guide dealt with us on our level although it was obvious he was capable of being a whole bunch more specific than our needs…ie, Bird watching!The food was amazing….and we were totally thrilled to have a Turkey dinner on Dec 25th! The staff was incredibly attentive and we were simply blown away by our experience! Very nice touch…our kids were thrilled that you made so much of them at this time of year!We have told everyone about Ecological Wilderness Adventures and will continue to do so! This was money well spent!Brian: you made a special trip to meet us on Christmas Day.Bravo Brian! You have a wonderful thing going….keep up the good work!
