Amazing tours of Kenya and Tanzania     , ACT, Australia, Sep 2023
The tour operators, drivers and hotel staff were amazing. The accommodations were delightful and the locations beautiful. Do book with Globus! Everything was taken care of.
Tanzania Culture and Craters   , NSW, Australia, Aug 2023
I just completed the Cultures and Craters tour in Tanzania. It was the most amazing experience. We went into the lives of some of the local tribes of the Kilimanjaro region and got to interact with them using a translator. We got to ask questions and also answer their questions about our lives. The contrast of the tribes is also fascinating being so ...read more different but from the same region. To top it all off a visit to the Ngorongoro Crater where we saw lions, elephants, buffalo, gazelle, hippos, zebras and so many birds. We even spotted a giraffe on the outer rim! I would recommend this tour and Crooked Compass as a company to anyone wanting to take a different view of Africa.
Amazing trip     , QLD, Australia, Jul 2023
Amazing trip with Globus on safari to Kenya & Tanzania. Both tour guides were very efficient & organised. Drivers were good. We were the only Australians. Other guests were Canadians & Americans. Found a tour group of 20 might be a bit too large to be called a "small group tour" Would suggest max 12-16 people. Definitely need to do this at least once ...read more in a lifetime as it is absolutely mind blowing how close you get to the animals
