“Being in a small group in areas where there were very few others made this trip special. The setup was wonderful and the staff fantastic. NatHab knows how to do safaris right!”
“Best vacation we have ever taken! NHA obviously pays attention to detail – perfect execution.”
“The best part of the trip was when 3 elephants approached our car and shared shade with us under a tree. I heard the elephant's skin rub against the side of the bark of the tree and it sounded exactly like sandpaper to wood. The elephants also ate right in front of us so I could hear the grass being pulled up by the roots with the elephants trunks. The sound of the grass roots ripping from the soil was incredible. The elephants also spent a lot of time staring at us as they were only about 2 feet away. This was the thrill of a lifetime for me.”
"Being my first safari, or nature trip of any kind, I was easily and positively impressed with the whole experience. Both guides were excellent. Because of my advanced age - and the fact I wasn't well for two days - they showed me special concern and attention beyond their usual high level. They were great, and good human beings, different from one another in ways that if anything improved the experience."
"The camps were nice and the staff was excellent. They made us feel so taken care of and special. The food was great! The sundowner on the rock will be something I remember forever. It was so spectacular. Our Expedition Leader made this trip. It was my first and I can understand how a lesser guide could affect the trip. He was so knowledgeable about the animals, trees, birds...anything you asked him. We were watching 2 lions and cubs and he realized there were wildebeest near. He was the only guide. He moved our jeep and asked others to move so the lions could see the prey. They then stalked and almost killed it. He was happy to explain things again for us. He told us their mating, gestation, who was they enemy, who they 'played nice' with. there seemed to be nothing that he did not know. He was accommodating and kind and sweet and he made this trip magical and something I will never forget. I learned so many things from him."
"We cannot express enough how wonderful the trip was. It was so overwhelmingly beautiful and educational and jaw dropping! Our primary leader, along with our drivers and guides, and our tracker, were not only terrific educators, but passionate about their work. They were asked hundreds of questions, and if they didn't know the answer, they found the answer! Our group of nine were all in agreement that these men made our trip what it was: an exceptional lifetime experience!!!"
“Everything was new and exciting! I loved being able to spend as much time in places as I wanted or needed. I was so pleased with all of the aspects of the trip and felt we were in trusted hands.”
“I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience! Seeing all these animals up close and staying in their natural habitats was truly special I also enjoyed learning about the cultures from all the guides and camp staff as well as the Masaai people that we met. I was able to take lots of great photos that I will display.”
"The staff was excellent. Ready to help, always with a smile and were very knowledgeable when asked questions. We received information not only about the animal life, but also about the history of Tanzania past and present.”
“The imagination or fun things the staff had for us was a total surprise and delightful. ex, Champagne on huge rocks with huge pillows, a fire and gorgeous night stars to look at, a barbecue in a Masaii 'men's only' rock cave, a tented campout under the magnificent starry skies, a visit to a Masaii village with all its kids and another to a Masaii school - all out of the usual routine. All these unique and subtle elements that NatHab does gave a special ambience to the whole trip!”
