My husband and I just got back from our honeymoon trip booked through Great Safaris. It was a trip of a lifetime and we were so impressed by the accommodations, food and first class service. We saw more animals than we ever expected to see and our safari guides were very knowledgeable. Our trip was two weeks and Great Safaris picked all the right spots in Kenya and Tanzania!

Travel with comfort, great food, safety and wonderful game viewing experiences. First time trip to Africa for my wife and I. All the guides and boat and safari camp staff were professional and fun. The transfers and connections were seamless. The home hosted dinner near Cape Town gave fascinating perspectives on life in South Africa.

My husband and I contacted Dave Herbert at Great Safaris after our friend (who is an experienced travel agent) highly recommended him. She has traveled to Africa numerous times and has always relied on Dave to make her arrangements. Not once has she ever been disappointed. So, following her lead, we gave him a call and told him what our budget was as well as what we wanted to see for our first time there. He recommended that we go for 19 days and go on safari to Kenya and Tanzania. He then put together an incredible itinerary that included Samburu National Park, the Masai Mara, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara, and the Serengeti. We stayed in deluxe accommodations throughout.

Every detail was attended to throughout our trip. Roundtrip transfers were included from small, dirt air strips to and from our lodges; private or semi-private drivers/guides took us on safari twice a day for a minimum of 7 hours per day; the food at each lodge was above average or outstanding, depending on where we were and often was included in the price of our tour; all inter-Africa flights were booked with excellent airlines (sometimes we were the only 2 passengers in the plane!); round trip flights from Los Angeles to Nairobi with a stopover in Dubai were also included in the price (we traveled on Emirates Airlines per Dave’s recommendation–definitely a good call); and we received outstanding service wherever we stayed.

We highly recommend Great Safaris and Dave Herbert if you are planning your first trip to Africa or your fiftieth! He knows the continent like the back of his hand because he goes there and sends his staff there continually to ensure that what they’re selling to their clients meets their high standards. You cannot go wrong with Great Safaris!!!

Dave was calm and confident. Knowledgeable and attentive to my travel needs. He assured the planning was thorough and follow up calls were completed during the trip to be sure I was well taken care of. I experienced integrity and genuine care with Great Safaris from the beginning to end of my trip.

We just returned from 3 weeks in South Africa, Zimbabwe and Botswana. I did my research on destinations we wanted to visit and then interviewed 4 different African tour agencies. ‘Great Safaris’ by far had more information, contacts and insightful suggestions for our trip. They were less expensive than the others for the same or better hotels, safari facilities and tours, and they took care of all our intra-African flights. We had to stay an additional day in Johannesburg and they took care of the arrangements when I called their local agent (at 6AM). I even received follow up calls to be sure my wife was feeling better.

Since our return, I have recommended ‘Great Safaris’ to numerous friends and neighbors. They are a first class outfit for the vacation of a lifetime. Dave Herbert at ‘Great Safaris’ is the man to speak with.

Additional Information

Since time began, the wild creatures of the vast Serengeti Plains meet, mingle and march together. When the rains cease and the landscape withers, millions of herbivores begin the slow procession northward, toward the promise of water and sweet new grasses. With their own promise of a moveable feast, the carnivores tag along, darting through the shadows in search of the too old, too young or too slow. This is the great migration – the Greatest Show on Earth.

Our adventure starts with set down in Kilimanjaro, gateway to safari country and shadowed under the soaring peaks of famed Mount Kilimanjaro. From our Arusha base, we venture out into game country for (hopefully) a glimpse of the fabled tree climbing lions of Lake Manyara.

greatest-show-on-earthAppetites duly whetted, move on to the fabulous Ngorongoro Crater – one of the natural wonders of the world. The vast floor of the collapsed caldera is a bountiful home to a huge permanent population of wildlife and we enjoy a day traversing the crater floor.

Winging west, we arrive into the heart of the Serengeti; a vast open savannah that always delivers superb game viewing experiences. The isolated camps surprise with luxurious amenities, delectable cuisine and friendly staff. You’ll always remember the evenings around the campfire, chatting with new friends and then falling to sleep as the Serengeti bush sings its night-time lullaby.

Consider staying a little longer and relaxing on the exotic island of Zanzibar. Or add some more thrilling wildlife days in Kenya.
