The Perfect Safari Guide

August 23, 2013 Tanzania Wildlife | Unique Safaris

We researched many outfitters before settling on Unique Safaris and we can’t say enough about them. From the moment we landed in Arusha to the moment we checked in for our departure flight home we were cared for as if we were long lost family. And yet, we never felt intruded upon. Instead, Unique Safaris was there when we needed them, ensuring that every detail, every consideration of care and comfort, and every need or wish was met.

Our sales agent took her time to understand our personalities and interests which led to pairing us with the perfect guide to lead our safari. After all, we were going to be spending a lot of time with him so it was comforting to know that he was selected based on our personalities versus just assigning us the next driver that was in queue to lead a safari.

As for our guide, he was a balance of warmth and humor coupled with a respectful quietude that allowed us to indulge in his company and yet enjoy our own private moments of wonder with each other. His ability to put us in the right position to get the very best shot was extraordinary. And we could tell from the enthusiasm in his voice to “take picture, take picture, take picture!”, that we were seeing something amazing, like this picture of a lion pride taking down a cape buffalo. In addition, he was genuinely excited for us each time we got a great photo shot. Whenever we experienced an animal sighting, our guide gave us a brief tutorial that went beyond general text book information. His knowledge of the bush and wildlife was astounding and we felt like we had our own personal tutor.

We are very grateful to Unique Safaris and especially our guide for without whom our safari would never have been so spectacular.
