What an amazing way to see Mt. Kilimanjaro. The entire Thomson Safari Team made sure this once in a lifetime trip was truly amazing. From preparation, travel to Africa, both my trek and safari experiences were top notch! Everyone was professional, courteous and concerned about ensuring guests were having the most memorable experience! Thanks Thomson for making this dream of mine come true!

Thank-you for no longer promoting establishments that offer Elephant rides. You are truly a wonderful and compassionate brand. South Africa loves you.

It is sad that a wonderful climbing experience in summating Kilimanjaro could be marred by a family of four with three of the family never should have been allowed to climb the mountain as they were in no shape to climb the almost 20,000 foot elevation. The mother compound fractured her leg on Day 2 with the husband and two adult children abandoning her to an Aruba hospital while they continued their climb. My four climbing companions had utter distaste that the three left a wife and mother to a strange hospital and environment so as to continue their trip which would not be interrupted. My recommendation I had wanted to share with the owners of Thomson, but they would not return my phone call. I believe a screening should be done as to those wanting to tackle Kili, and if a family group wants to climb, they should sign a letter that if one in the party is injured and needs to abandon the climb, the others in the party need to leave also. The three also went on a safari afterwards and again left the wife and mother, shipping her home by herself. Thomson allows it as the climb and safari were lucrative and the money aspect was more important than common decency. In fact, during the remainder of the climb, the head guide, Bernard asked me several times why the three were still climbing and not with the woman that was in severe pain when she left the mountain.

Taking a trip to Tanzania with Thomson Safaris will be one of the most incredible experiences you will ever have. When you hear "trip of a lifetime" this is what they are talking about.

A Thomson Safaris trip goes well beyond a safari. It, for our family of five, was an experience that will be forever a perfect point in time in our collective memories. Thomson's service -- from planning, logistics, lodging, meals and team -- is remarkable. They immerse you in the local Tanzanian culture, knowing just how far to take you understanding you're not from the country. The blend of tourism and education, western appetites with local cuisine, and wildlife is remarkable. We saw every species of wildlife we hoped for and then some! And Thomson helped our family engage the area culture and community, including through a visit to a Masai school, which had an incredible impact on our three children. Finally, our guide will forever be a member of our extended family. He offered deep regional knowledge and expertise, humor at every turn, safety and security in remote regions, and the empathy of a parent, ensuring every member of our family had a perfect journey. Well done Thomson, could not recommend you more.

Traveled with Thomson on a Safari as well as the Kili climb. One of the best travel experiences to date. The crew (US and Tanzania) was professional and caring. The facilities on Kili and Serengeti were best in class! The memories we made on the trip will stay with us for the rest of our lives and we will surely be back on a Safari soon to explore more of the amazing wildlife...Highly recommend Thomson without any hesitation!

I traveled on a Thomson Safari in February of this year. I cannot say enough wonderful things about my experience. The landscapes were stunning (especially the Ngorongoro Crater), the wildlife was fascinating (giraffe are my favorite) and the Nyumba camping tents are so special. I felt like I was living well but still out in the bush close to the wildlife and away from other tourists. I will never forget this trip and Thomson's amazing guides and overall service.

I couldn't recommend Thomson more. I climbed Kili with them in 2013 and it was a life changing experience. we were a group of all women, ages 16-67 and we all summited. the care and attention was so kind and genuine. I feel very strongly that you don't climb Kilimanjaro, the porters do and then they pull you up. my friend is the one that found Thomson and as she put it... you climb Kili once, so why not do it with the best! If you want to have a life changing experience, do your self a favor and do business with these folks. regardless of it being Kilimanjaro or a Safari... you won't regret it.
