Amazing support by our mountain guides and porters. Without their unwavering support I wouldn't have made it to the top. Very good trip! Would recommend.

There are plenty of similar tours to that provided by Safari Big 5 but what made this company stand out was the level of personal service that we received before arriving in Arusha and the quality of the driver/guide that was provided. The itinerary was great. We did the best possible circuit from Arusha to Tarangire, Manyara, Serengeti, Ndutu, finishing with NgoroNgoro crater. The accommodation between the drives was excellent and everything was sorted by the driver. With the mix of reserves and game parks that we had we saw plenty of the big game, but never all in one place - it is important to realise that you may not see elephants on the Serengeti, but will see loads in Tarangire. Take binos to see the rhino as they are elusive and often sleeping in the distance away from the beaten track. Also take a sense of humour for the long drive into the Serengeti which is dusty and rough. If you can afford it, a flight into the Serengeti would be ideal. We slept as a family in two tented camps during the trip. These were superb and the quality of service was better than the lodge we stayed at on the crater rim. Take the best camera you can afford and be prepared to be overwhelmed by the amount of wildlife you will see.

This was an unforgettable experience for the entire family - the sounds of lions roaring at night whilst we tried to sleep will last with us all forever.
