Just got back from an incredible trip to Tanzania with Thomson Safari. They arranged an amazing trip that was off the charts memorable. The wildlife was stunning and abundant and they took great care in arranging cultural events that are informative and really fascinating. This was my second tour with Thomson and I’m working on arranging a third with them. The entire Thomson team goes above and beyond to put together the perfect itinerary as well as keeping everyone safe during COVID. How many people can say they watched an African sunset while sipping champagne and hanging out with Maasai warriors? Come for the wildlife, but fall in love with the people. Truly an exceptional team to experience Tanzania with!

I climbed Kilimanjaro with my son and daughter from March 11-16 2020. It was an incredible, once in a lifetime experience made possible by Thomson. Our Head Guide Polite Mboma and his crew did a great job of keeping us safe and supporting us through a challenging and arduous trek. My daughter experienced extreme altitude sickness on our final climb to the summit. Polite’s experience, calm and strength sustained us during that difficult time and enabled us all to successfully reach the summit. The food was amazing! The equipment was excellent! We had a wonderful experience! I would highly recommend Thomson Safaris!

My wife and I can't begin to express how wonderful this trip was. At times we felt we were being sent back to "the creation" (figuratively speaking), and at Oldevie Gorge, perhaps we were. Our guide, Freddy, was outstanding as was the entire staff at each camp location. I was disappointed not to have more people in our group prior to leaving, but after seeing the packed trucks of some other safaris and people there struggling to get good views of the wildlife I realized how lucky we were. The camp accommodations were very well thought out and, of course, Gibbs was fabulous. While we had little time there we got in a nature walk and a good swim in the pool (gorgeous location overlooking the coffee plantation) to stretch our muscles and bones after many days of long, bumpy traveling. And, of course, the food and service there excelled. We also enjoyed the cultural side, especially visiting and learning about the Masai, seeing the clinic and talking to the nurse there. We are thinking about how to be helpful there, but a gift to FOTZC will certainly be forthcoming. All in all, well done Thomson!

Thomson is the best! Our Kilimanjaro trek was so amazing and well executed from booking to coming home. Thomson helped us plan, get the right gear, and get all the details covered. When we were there the very best porters and guides took care of our every need. HIGHLY recommend Thomson Safaris!

Although it went pretty fast....more days would have been better in each camp... the service was fabulous. The food was plentiful and good. The tents (Nyumba) were not for the feint hearted (not glamping) but it was a genuine Safari in the rough wide open Serengeti. The roads were deeply rutted and water crossings were an adventure. The wildlife was all around us.... Zebra and Wildebeest herds up close. Lion and Cheetah did not fail to appear, The Land Rovers were perfect for viewing wildlife with only 4-5 people in each one.The guides were all great drivers and knew all the fauna and flora around us. The days were long and glorious. Did I mention the great sunsets and spectacular sunrises? Highest praise for this journey.... you must go if you ever wanted to seeTanzania...

We just completed the Founders Safari which was the perfect blend of tent camping, luxury accommodations, time with the animals, and time with the people of Tanzania. Thomson did a excellent job from start to finish! They provided great advance information and guidance and during the trip…it was perfect. Loved the tent camps (3 in the Serengeti) as well as our stay at Gibbs farm. Our guide, Babu was excellent in every way. Glad we chose an itinerary that included 2 short plane trips to reduce the time spent traveling on the ground. Highly recommend Thomson if you are considering a Safari!
