Just wanted to quickly let you know that our trip was amazing! It truly exceeded our expectations, and everything went smoothly and as planned. It was an unbelievable experience we will never forget. Thank you for everything!!

Michele & Kevin W / Okotoks, AB / Tanzania July 2023

We are back and had the best trip!!! Many laughs and stories from our adventure. Jason, who usually is ready to come home, felt the trip went by quickly, and he enjoyed every moment of it. Now he’s wanting to do another part of Africa one day. Thanks again for creating a truly seamless and stress free holiday for us.

Shail and I wanted to extend our deepest gratitude for the impeccable trip you planned for us from 28th October to 2nd November. Witnessing the Great Migration, encountering so many animals (not to mention two hunts and lots of babies), the exhilarating Hot Air balloon tour, and reaching Shira Camp 1 on Kilimanjaro were absolute highlights. You nailed it!

Every pickup and drop-off was orchestrated perfectly. The entire experience at Namiri Plains, especially with the Asilia team, was outstanding. The open photography vehicle was genius and was the envy of all other tourists in the backcountry. We loved the food and accommodations. Being remote and all the way on the East allowed us to avoid crowds of Jeeps and be one with the animals. Our guide, Anderson, truly enhanced our time in the Serengeti. His knowledge, enthusiasm, English, charisma, and understanding of animal behaviors were unparalleled. One of the best guides we have ever had.

Furthermore, our hiking guide Charles' vibrant energy made our Kilimanjaro climb memorable. Being led by someone who had done it 300+ times allowed us to relax and enjoy the journey.

While Namiri Plains was a stellar experience, Lake Duluti Lodge fell bit short in terms of staff service and food quality, although the room was beautiful. I know there were only a few options available at the time of our booking. It was a truck back to the mountain but very convenient to our departing flight to the Serengeti. Plus, the town of Arusha had a great shopping.

Once again, thank you for crafting such a memorable journey for us in record time. This was truly a trip of a lifetime. Your attention to detail (where to sit on the plane), combined with the excellent recommendations, made this trip truly special. We will definitely be using your services to bring the rest of the family over to Tanzania on our next trip.
