My wife and I spent 3 1/2 days on safari with Galloping safari in June 2014.
It was truly a great experience.
Our guide Osbeth was great and very nice to be around.
We stayed at 2 different places:
Tarangiere Lodge: Tented lodge located on the most beautiful ridge ever. A real shame we did not have more time to just sit and enjoy the views. Real fun to try and tents were comfortable despite my girlfriend is not a big fan of tents and the bugs that go along with it.
Ngorogoro Farm House: Giant rooms!, very clean and highly recommendable hotel. Quite a large place but very cozy feeling despite of this.
Walter, the local owner offered to pick us up at the airport which was very nice. He was very nice and responded quickly to our emails despite the fact that we reserved the safari quite late.
So all in all just a really great and highly recommendable experience!
A few minor improvement suggestions:
1.) The car we drove was a Toyota Landcruiser which is the same as all the other operators use. However it was quite beat up and we had a lot of trouble starting the car once we stopped to watch the animals. This was actually very disturbing and kind of messed up our second day. However it was eventually fixed (kind of).. Maybe it is just part of the game, who knows (TIA).
2.) In Denmark when someone offers to pick you up and do not indicate that this service is not part of the price paid, then it is considered very rude if the operator tries to charge money for it afterwards. We did not end up paying for the airport transfer but the fact that we even had to deal with it bothered us. Simple: If something is not included then clearly indicate the price before hand. Then awkward moments can be avoided in the future..
Thanks for a great time!
