Me and my husband we had lovely safari with Ungitours with the help of Faiza. We spent 5days exploring Kenya, Amboseli National park, Masai Mara, Lake Nakuru, a trip to the elephant orphanage and our lunch at giraffe manor in Nairobi the guide was awesome as they were extremely professional the entire time, we flew to Serengeti on arrival we were picked by Laurent a skilled Guide, we spend 3days in Serengeti then Ngorongoro and Tarangire we were lucky to see Big 5, fantastic landscape, our safari vehicle, accommodation, food both Kenya and Tanzania were exceptional lunches with wine, sundowner with snacks. Overall an excellent guide and trip well organized and planned worthy every penny.

The Ngorongoro Crater is a spectacular place to visit but one needs a good guide to see all the animals especially the most sought five - lions, rhinoceros, leopards and Cape buffalo. We were not fortunate to see the rhino but saw the rest. The animals are in a caldera that is very scenic from the top. The crater is considered one of Africa’s seven natural wonders. If you stay at one of the Crater edge hotels there is a very good view of the sunrise over the Crater. Sometimes the clouds block the beauty of a full sunrise but nevertheless the experience is majestic. The Government needs to come up with ways to increase the population of rhinos, lions and other rare animals or else these will go extinct. Our tour guides had to struggle for hours to see the few lions that we saw. Munir D.

Meeting our tour guide and driver Sisty at Kilimanjaro International Airport,at 7am we were escorted to our safari vehicle, Sisty was wearing a mask, and sanitised the door handles of the car and sprayed the inside of the car before we got in. He introduced himself and presented a folder with the outline of our tour before we proceeded to our first destination: Ngorongoro Crater for a tour and overnight at Lemala Ngorongoro Camp. On route we stopped for a picnic lunch before heading down into the crater to see the wild life, Sisty pointed out the animals and birds as we travelled across the crater making it an interesting afternoon before arriving at our camp around 6pm in the evening. a fantastic first day finished with drinks around the camp fire, dinner at the camp and a good nights sleep...
