Marcin4 day Mt Meru climb and 3 day safari
We have visited Tanzania in February 2020, our trip included Mt Meru climb and safari in Tarangire park, Ngorongoro crater and Lake Manyara park. We were in group of 10 people, including 5 teenagers.
For all of these days we have chosen Popote Africa and that was very good decision. We received not only what was contracted, but also extra effort, starting from the very beginning, when we have missed the last flight segment and had to stay overnight in Nairobi. Popote (in particular Redeem) helped us then and we managed to get to Arusha.
We started with Meru trekking. Our guides were very professional, prepared us to the climb, taking care about everything, from water containers to daily healthchecks or briefings. We were looked after by the whole team, we enjoyed every moment with them, had full trust in them, but also lots of fun. I don't think we would make to the summit by ourselves. With the big group, during the night hours to the summit, each one of our group had difficult moments, but we always had a great support of the team: guides Dickson and Jamal, and porters: Faraja, Dickson Moto, Shehe, Rashid, Innocent. Tanzania warriors: thank you for bringing us there and back safely, in good health and in fantastic mood.
After Mt Meru we took safari trips to 3 national parks. Again, our drivers and guides, Tooma and Davis were great, experienced and knew when and where it is worthy to go or to wait. We owe also recognition to our "stomach engineer" for delicious meals :-).
That was dream vacation for us. It wouldn't work that way without experienced and engaged team of Popote. I can proudly say I have friends in Tanzania now!
