“Wow! Our Expedition Leader was so professional and incredibly knowledgeable. He knew so much about the animals and birdlife. He was a great spotter. He went out of his way to give attention to every traveler's needs and their comforts. We learned SO much this trip, and I applaud his knowledge as well as his ability to juggle all our needs. Bravo! I have travelled to Africa before, but what really set this trip apart was the quality of the guides. They had such a high level of knowledge, great spotting skills, went out of their way to make everyone on the trip comfortable, and spoke English so well. Also, really appreciated the seamlessness of the process. From the minute we were met at the airport, everything was handled, and we could really relax and enjoy our vacation. Great work!”
“We have nothing but great things to say about our Expedition Leaders. They were the best guides anyone could ask for. They were friendly, funny, knowledgeable, helpful, patient, professional and attentive. They anticipated our needs and went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. Their knowledge of the animals and territory was extraordinary! There was not one question they could not answer and they were constantly providing interesting bits of information. They also were amazing at spotting animals in the bush and making sure we got an up close view each time. They went out their way to find so many different species -- it was beyond what we expected. They also shared lots of good tips on taking photos and made sure we were taken care of at the camps and on the safaris. They were both incredible!”

“What we enjoyed most was travelling to a total foreign environment for both of us for the first time, yet because of the way the trip was structured, felt totally at ease (in terms of safety) the entire trip. Also, seeing the wildlife in the environment that they own. Getting to know local Tanzanians (such as the Maasai) was a rewarding experience. Making international friends too!”
“The wildlife is, of course, extraordinary--but I enjoyed our time with the guides and in the camps and other accommodations as much as the game drives. We had a great group of people (guests, guides, and others) and it is them that I will remember most, as well as the Maasai people we had the privilege to meet. What I enjoyed least was LEAVING, and I'm sure I am not the first to say that!
I so appreciated the fact that our camps and other accommodations were as private as possible and in such beautiful spots. This didn't feel like a tourist "package" but a very special private experience--it doesn't get better than that, and it is one of the reasons I hope to travel with Nat Hab again. All of the accommodations were glorious--what more can I say? The level of luxury provided in these remote locations (and the amount of effort that goes into things like eggs made-to-order, warm sheets, and hot showers) is extraordinary. I started out thinking this trip was rather expensive and ended up thinking it was a bargain for the level of service we got.”
“I hope I don't sound over-the-top with my markings, but I truly mean all of them - I had no idea the trip would be so well run, comfortable and thrilling. The staff in every camp were remarkable.”
“You know I was very impressed by how every action from driving around dung beetles so as not hurt them, or not going off track to keeping a safe distance from animals that camera shy show the dedication of the Nat Hab staff towards conservation and animal welfare. It makes you feel good to be part of the experience.”
“The tent accommodations were wonderful - definitely gave the feeling of being in the wilderness and experiencing ‘old Africa.’ Furnishings were lovely.”

“We cannot stress how amazing our Expedition Leader and drivers were throughout the entire trip. These guys and the staff at the various camps should be highly commended for their tremendous work and tireless professional work ethic. We will continue to travel with NatHab and recommend it to everyone and anyone who asks. It is because of people like our guide and the other team members that make your company great.
We also enjoyed all the meals. They were tasty and tremendously varied. It is incredible that this can be accomplished despite being in remote locations and not having a commercial kitchen available! As people who really enjoy food, we realize such meal diversity is not an easy task. When I asked one of the chefs for a recipe, it was quickly provided and we have enjoyed the same dish since returning back to Canada. The variety of soups was out of this world, let alone the other dishes and courses.”
“Our Expedition Leader and drivers were exceptional leaders and I really cannot say enough good things about them. They were extremely knowledgeable; attentive; resourceful with cars; and funny. When I came back home and people asked me about the trip, before I told them about the magnificent scenery, food, and animals; I told them about how magnificent my guides were. They were beyond exceptional.”
“The trip was wonderful. I learned very much about the land animals and the culture. Our guide was a complete joy. He was incredible and very fun. The camp staff at our first location were a joy. They went out of their way to make everyday a pleasure. The trip was incredible.”
