Five Weeks with Boma Africa in Tanzania
We were with Boma Africa for five weeks. They picked us up at the Arusha airport when we arrived, and we were taken care of from that point until we were dropped off at the Dar es Salaam airport on our departure. Our trip included safaris in Ngorongoro, Tarangire, Serengeti, and Ruaha; hiking to Lake Natron, the Empakai Crater and the farmlands around Lushoto; climbing Kilimanjaro; and ending on the beaches of Zanzibar; with many cultural tours in between.
In short, it was fantastic! We really want to congratulate Boma on an excellent product. We were super happy. The organization, logistics, and excellent client care throughout were great. The guides were excellent – professional, knowledgable, and had our safety as their first priority. It all worked out perfectly. Most importantly for us, there was no stress, as everything was so well managed. If we know of anyone planning a trip to Tanzania, we would recommend Boma Africa in a heart beat.
Specific feedback on the trip:
The itinerary worked really well for us. It was a good blend of game drives, cultural tours and information, and hiking. It was nicely broken up, and Kilimanjaro was a great interlude mid-trip
Guides: all were excellent. They were all professional and very well informed.
Chefs: amazing what they could do – especially on Kilimanjaro. We were very happy with the quality of food, and how much effort they put into our well being.
Lushoto – really cool place! We could have spent another day here, just to hike around.
Ruaha – super cool, really enjoyed our one night there.
Zanzibar was a really nice way to end the trip.
