I just returned from an 8 days safari with DUMA and everything has been just PERFECT! I had of course asked several agencies for a quotation and had shortlisted 3 including Duma but I had the impression that, compared to the other quotations I had received, it offered a very good value for money. Although the price was slightly higher than the others (something like 200$ on the total amount which is nothing if you consider we were 4 and travelling for 8 days) the accommodations were all inside the parks which really makes the difference since the last thing you want is wasting time driving in and out of the parks every day (while many agencies book lodges outside since they are far cheaper) and it offered 8 full days safari while others were 7 nights/7 days with no activities on the last day. Besides Duma was the only agency which suggested a much more interesting itinerary which included the North of Serengeti in addition to the standard Taragire/Seronera/Ngorongoro tour. This is a beautiful area, not crowded at all, with a fantastic landscape, lots of animals to see and, above all, gave us the chance of seeing the migration, which was fantastic!. During the trip arrangements, Stacy always answered promptly to all my e-mails and questions and she even took the time to come to meet me at the hotel when we started the safari . The driver/guide, Sifuni, was really fantastic. He has been a real pleasure to be with since he is a very reliable, competent and nice person who really pampered us (and especially our kids!) during the whole trip. As I mentioned all the accommodations suggested were great but we particularly loved our stay at the Chaka camp which is their brand new camp in Central Serengeti. It is beautiful and the service is just great: wake up with coffee in bed (and chocolate for the kids) at 5.30 a.m. has been a real treat for us and really made a difference for such an early start!
Finally they assigned us a big car (although we were just 4) which made it easier for our children to cope with the long hours of driving since they had more space to move a bit and to play. I have been extremely satisfied with my choice and I would definitely recommend to use them!!!
