I was fortunate that I chose to book a 10 day safari with Warrior Trails. I recently returned from this safari, during February 2014.
I met Clamian (owner) later in the safari for a visit when he welcomed me to Tanzania, and explained about his various projects to aid his community. It was a pleasure to meet and talk with him.
William (office) was my first contact person and subsequently dealt with my many email questions with courtesy and efficiency; his email replies invariably arrived within just a few hours, giving me clear and concise answers to my questions. Bookings were efficiently made and the varied accommodations he chose for me were excellent. (I found that my favourites were the tented camps). He met with me at my hotel in Arusha the evening before the start of the safari to welcome me and to explain what I could expect throughout the safari.
Frank was my guide/driver. In my opinion, Frank is a guide to wish for. From the moment I located him waiting for me at Kilimanjaro airport I was confident this safari was going to be a good experience. A pleasant-natured and friendly Maasai, knowledgeable, with sharp eyesight to seek out many wonders hidden in the vegetation, and at far distances, which I would never have seen otherwise. A confident and skillful vehicle driver both in the sometimes congested Arusha traffic, and on Serengeti's slippery and muddy trails during our one day of rain. Throughout the safari he strove to provide me with the best safari experience possible.
I could describe in glowing detail all the wonders of my safari: the animals, the scenery, the friendly people. But that would be repetitious as these are all already covered in other peoples' Trip Advisor, Warrior Trails reviews.
So I would just like to tell any interested traveler who may travel as a single person, or is in the 'seniors' age group, or who is a woman (maybe, all those three) and who may be hesitant about traveling to Tanzania and going on safari, particularly if alone: if you are in generally good health, and reasonably agile, you will be in good hands with Warrior Trails, and have a wonderful time. As a single woman traveler in my mid-70s I couldn't have wished to be better looked after and, indeed, I felt safer on this trip than I have in other world travels.
In conclusion, if my circumstances permit, I would wish to return to Tanzania for another safari; if that happens, I'll have no hesitation in contacting Claiman and his excellent staff at Warrior Trails for my bookings.
