My husband and I went on a 8 day safari trip the beginning of September 2013. I chose the company after much research as a wanted a locally owned company. After emails to several companies with my ideas of an itinerary I was most pleased with the response from Warrior Trails. I had email correspondence with Cathy here in Canada. She was prompt in her replies and listened to what I wanted but also made some good suggestions which I appreciated. Their price was reasonable compared to others. Actually I booked for my husband and myself when our friends expressed a desire to join us. Warrior Trails was able to accommodate them quickly and we were most appreciative of the fact that when we checked into our accommodations we were placed either right beside each other or in the tent across from each other.
Warrior Trails's gave us personal and excellent service from picking us up at the Kilimanjaro airport, as well as at the local Arusha airport and at the end to taking us back for our flight home. We spent 2 days before and after our safari at Christina's House. We met with the Warrior Trail staff including William, who booked all our arrangements and the office staff before the start of our safari. It is a smaller operation however that allows them to give a more personal touch which included at the end of our safari taking us on a little tour of Arusha and taking us out for lunch where we met with the owner's brother for feedback on our experience.
I can not say enough about Nicholaus our guide/driver. He is a warm, knowledgeable, funny, and patient man. He is experienced but still excited about showing you the animals and the Parks. He really wanted us to see as much as possible. We saw everything we even thought we wanted to see. You just had to mention something and he would make a point of looking for it and we were always successful. He was excellent at spotting animals and also encouraged us to just take time to sit and observe them which was exactly what we liked to do. His knowledge of animals, birds, and plants was exceptional. He was a good driver and was always considering our needs (as we are all in our 60's) He was so patient with us and would stop for anything we wanted to take a picture of and would wait until we were ready to go. He could also talk about other things like world issues, family, culture and had many stories to share. He made our Safari the most wonderful and unforgettable experience and it lived up to and exceeded all my expectations. I would highly recommend Warrior Trails and if you can have Nicholaus as your guide then I guarantee that you will have a wonderful experience. Thanks to everyone at Warrior Trails!
