Why I chose Nomad Tanzania for our first African Safari

Our Safari guides, who had all been with the company for 10, 15 even 20 years, always had the best interest of animals (and safety of guests) in mind. The close encounters we had were typically when animals walked right up to the road. Many guides unfortunately go “off-roading” in order to ensure guests get great pictures, meanwhile destroying flora and fauna and disturbing animals. 

Our guides served as spotters for not only for animals, but for trash. If any trash was seen, our guides quickly pulled over to collect it. We only saw 1 or 2 pieces of trash in the many miles we covered in multiple parks. Our guides were incredibly passionate about reducing use of plastic. They described the ongoing training the company provides them on the impact of the use of plastic. On our first day, our guide provided us with reusable water bottles to use during our trip - he was thrilled to see I had already packed mine. Our guide also spoke about hoping to inspire others to reduce/eliminate the use of plastics in order to protect future generations. He was terrified at the thought of our sea salt containing microplastics. 

I absolutely feel like we chose the right company to guide us through Tanzania. It truly felt like a mutually educational experience which is so important when traveling.

We can’t wait to go back and explore more of beautiful Africa!
