Lake Nakuru
Hi
Just wanted to thank you for the great trip we took with your organization to Lake Nakuru on Friday Nov. 6. It was an awesome day and the driver/guide was great. We really enjoyed the flamingoes and other animals. We later went to Masaai Mara for the weekend and although that was very impressive based on number and variety of animals, Nakuru was very special to us as there were only 4 of us that went on that day trip. We especially appreciated the convenience of a skilled driver getting us there and back safely. Kenyan roads are extremely challenging to drive and having to do that would have made the vacation memorable for the wrong reasons!

Brett June 2016
Samburu & Mara Safaris

Thanks for organising a fabulous trip. Everything was organised perfectly and ran smoothly.
We found Peter to be an excellent driver / guide. Brett and I have done many, many safaris over the 10 years we have worked in Tanzania and we found Peter to be the BEST driver / guide we have ever had. He has an excellent character, he is very knowledgeable. He is never annoying and he knows excactly where to park for good photographs. He does not harrass the wildlife and we enjoyed being in a vehicle that did not have the constant drum buzzing of a radio blarring away in the background.
We will definately be recommended your company and Peter as a driver to any of our friends that will be visiting Kenya in future. And we might come back in 2017 so will surely let you know.
Regards

SAADANI NATIONAL PARK: Tanzania's newest national park, located 130 km North of Dar Salaam and just 38 km from Zanzibar. The reserve has the unique distinction of being East Africa's only coastal wildlife sanctuary, providing the opportunity to observe Africa's big game and bird life interacting with the sea. Saadani has a diverse population of mammals and birds, although many species are both scarce and scared compared to other parks which have received better protection in the past. Of the big five, lion, leopard, elephant and buffalo are present, the rare Roosevelt sable is indigenous, whilst plains game such as giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, eland and hartebeest are more frequently seen in larger herds. The southern boundary is marked by the Wami River, which attracts fabulous bird life, large pods of hippo, massive crocodiles and the spectacular black and white Colobus monkey. Bottle-nosed dolphins are common off the Southern coast of the reserve, whales pass through the Zanzibar Channel in October and November, and there is a green turtle breeding beach at Madete in the North.

The Wami river offers probably the best boat safari in Tanzania and is a favourite with visitors to Saadani. The boat often passes flocks of flamingoes at the mouth of the estuary before entering the river with its abundant wildlife and profusion of bird life. Explored by foot the reserve is extremely rewarding and highlights how much game lives in close proximity to the beach. The unique experience of tracking giraffe through prime bush then emerging onto a pristine beach in a matter of a few paces is not easily forgotten. Improved road conditions within the reserve have made the prime game viewing areas more easily accessible and the wildlife is now becoming used to 4x4 vehicles on the game drives. Saadani is in the unique position of providing the opportunity to observe Africa's big game and bird life interacting with the sea. Foot safaris combining the bush and the beach, birdwatching by canoe on the Mafue river and game drives are all available from the lodge and a boat safari on the Wami river can be organised as part of a full day game drive. The nearby Madete Marine Reserve offers superb snorkeling and is a green turtle nesting site. ATWV has started its own turtle hatchery at the lodge to help conserve this endangered species.Superficially at odds with the reserve, yet aligned to conservation and the thinking eco-tourist, is Saadani village, one of the oldest communities on the East African coast and as such right at the heart of Swahili culture. The fascinating history of the village is evident in the remains of the old fort and war time cemeteries, whilst silhouetted prawn fisherman dragging their nets before the coming dawn make an extremely evocative image.


SELOUS GAME RESERVE:The Selous Game Reserve, located approximate 8 hours drive south of Dar-es-Salaam, is the largest reserve in Africa and one of the largest protected wildlife areas in the world. It is home to some of the biggest quantities and variety of animals and birds in Africa. It has the world's largest number of big game, more than 120,000 elephants, 160,000 buffaloes and about 2,000 rhinoceros, In addition, the Selous contains Africa's greatest concentration of hippopotamus, crocodile and wild dog.

SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK: Tanzania's oldest park, located in the North, covering an area of over 14,760 sq, the Serengeti is the country's most popular and famous park. "Serengeti" is a Maasai word meaning "endless plain", very apt, as the park consists of flat, treeless plains stretching as far as the eye can see, one of the highest concentration game sites in Africa. Virtually every game species in Africa can be found here, but it is most famous for its vast herds of wilderbeest, zebra and antelope, as well as "the Serengeti Lions". The best viewing months are from December to March, when many animals are concentrated in the park's southern regions. However, one of the spectacular and unique events of the year is the Serengeti annual migration, which takes place heading north to south October November and back south to north between the months of April and June.
