I booked my Tanzania trip through Everlasting Tanzania Travels and I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking to explore Tanzania.
Robert Chekwaze and his team looked after us so well and really put a personal touch to the trip that another tour company would not take the time to do.
I emailed Robert firstname.lastname@example.org following a recommendation and from start to finish I found the service excellent. The company is very friendly, professional and looking out for you to ensure you have a happy, safe and carefree trip.
At the start of our 3 week trip Everlasting Tanzania Travels helped with arrangements for a successful submit of African's highest mountain - Kilimanjaro! Robert and his team helped with last minute things for the climb such as extra sleeping bags and sleeping mats. Nothing was too much to ask. We did the Kilimanjaro (Lemosho route) and would highly recommend this route as it took 8 days with very little altitude sickness and reaching the top was an incredible feeling. The porters and guides employed by Everlasting Tanzania Travels looked after us so well (we had our own individual porter) and each porter and guide had such good things to say about the company and loved working for this company.
Robert organised our onward adventure after the climb and had all our internal flights and accommodation booked for us before we arrived in Tanzania which left us to enjoy the trip without having to worry. The trust he put in us was amazing as he booked flights and accommodation in advance without even meeting us. A few emails over and back and all was arranged!
Worth noting that ATM's and credit card facilities are limited in Tanzania so we had to pay Robert in cash on arrival.
As I mentioned above Everlasting Tanzania Travels really provide the personal touch - taking us out to dinner and bringing us to the local shops/ ATM - nothing was any bother for them and they really wanted to make sure we enjoyed our trip. We had good laughs along the way with Robert and his team. They showed us some Arusha night life also which was good fun :-) We learned so much from all the guide and porters and the many questions we asked about Tanzania's exciting culture were answered so well. The guides and porters are very knowledgeable.
This company also helps out local rural communities helping vulnerable children and young women.
The trip we did in Tanzania was 8 days Kilimanjaro, 4 day Safari in the Serengeti including a hot air balloon ride in the Serengeti, Massi village cultural tourism, 5 days beach holiday in Zanzibar, all of which was arranged through Everlasting Tanzania Travels.
The accommodation highlights were Kati Kati tented lodge in the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Farm House on the way back to Arusha from the Serengeti
