Fantastic adventure with a twist
In October my wife and I went for a 12 days round trip Arusha-Manyara-Ngogongoro-SERENGETI-Zanzibar. Expertly put together by JM Tours. And with a twist because we had the best guide ever (Bashiri Abdallah) who tracked down a Lion family eating a sebra, expertly dodged a an old male elephant set on running into our car, found leopards, geopards, crocodiles and not at least got into herds of grazing giraffes. He knew exactly how to drive to allow me to take all my pictures (just look). Bashiri was familiar with a Masai tribe and got us a sole visit into their village and daily life. Bashiri never lost his cool and even managed to get two flat tires mended over night in the middle of nowhere.
BUT, the best of all was that we got a friend for life in Bashiri. Bashiri introduced us to modern life in Tanzania, its history, politics, culture, languages, tribes, family life and all the small daily details we would never find anyone to ask or even think to ask. Thank you very much to Johnson Mtui for employing knowledgable, kind and excellent people like Bashiri. Our vacation was the best. We highly recommend JM Tours - totally dependable, quick to arrange and respond before we went and with employees like Bashiri to take care of everything along the way.
