    The safari + Zanzibar tour my family took in Tanzania in late August 2023 was one of the most memorable vacations we have had in many years. Thank you Amin for your thoughtful arrangements and care throughout before and during and after the trip. The local guide is experienced and made genuine efforts to fill our trip with many exciting sightings. Seeing the cheetah hunting and kill, the wildebeest crossing were the absolute highlights, so good that we can even ignore the underwhelming rhinos visit…
    Highly recommend Amin and this group to anyone who wants to go on a safari tour.
