The care and attention that went into creating our holiday was exceptional. George dealt with us from start to finish, and created a holiday we will long remember. He was available by email and happy to take even the most mundane of calls from me, double checking the small details of packing, money etc...He came up with the initial itinerary, which we made a couple of changes to; he then advised us of a change that had to be made due to a hotel being closed, but had already found an alternative. He was then very patient with us as we had issues with our flights (cancelled dates needing rearranging), and while we attempted to make contact with a Tanzanian school to visit, which also affected where we would be staying.
The itinerary created was superb, the company he chose to take us on safari (Duma Explorer) excellent. Our guide, Wilson, was second to none, with his knowledge and experience as a guide.
Cannot fault the team or George, and it was lovely to have a chat with him, once we were home, about the holiday (feedback etc..) and share with him our experiences, which he was genuinely interested in.
I would definitely book with Odyssey Travels again!

Drivers were excellent and paid attention to every little detail. The Ndutu camp was fab. The lodges were great. The itinerary & transfers all worked well. Saw lots of animals close up in lush surroundings. Would suggest that Tanzania is a must on anyone’s destination list. Climate in December was perfect and best of all there were no mosquitoes.
