Safari Infinity - some thoughts

We have just come back from our second Tanzanian safari, the first in October 2012 was booked through a UK based agent to give us some degree of security but this time we felt more confident about going with a local operator.

I will do a full trip report and lodge reviews in the appropriate places but though it might be useful to anyone thinking about using Safari Infinity to post my thoughts here. From the first e-mail enquiry to the last day of the trip they have been utterly superb - friendly but professional, helpful with advice but not pushy, competitive on price and happy to accomodate my specific requests. A couple of minor technical issues with the car on the first day were dealt with efficiently and with the minimum of inconvenience to us. The car itself was impeccably presented every day and equipped with chargers, binoculars, drinks coolers and seat cushions.

The guide, Eric, deserves a special mention - on our first safari we though our guide was good but Eric was a different class. He was friendly, humorous and extremely passionate and knowledgeable about the wildlife. He was happy to do whatever we asked, even driving from Seronera to the Western Corridor and back in a day to track down the herds which were ahead of time. He also made suggestions that we hadn't thought about that added to our experience.

Overall the trip more than met our expectations, Lucia, Simon and the team at SI are clearly very passionate about the service they provide - I can thoroughly recommend Safari Infinity to anyone considering a trip to Tanzania.

Very happy to read another positive review of Safari Infinity. I did two safaris with them, so am not surprised to read a good review!. They have worked hard the last few years to build a strong and positive reputation for their company, and have been very successful at what they do. Sam (Simon) and Lucia are a hard working couple who are passionate about what they are doing, and it shows in the high quality safaris they provide to their clients.

Can't wait for a full trip report.....and photos!!

We too used safari infinity last summer.

From beginning to end I have never used a tour company that ran as seamless and true to its word!

Lucia is the most conscientious person I have ever worked with.

I must have changed our itinerary 50 times, and Lucia never minded, (or at least she never showed it😊)

She and Sam make each client feel like family.

To top everything off, our driver, kelly, we just adored. He was fun, kind and willing to do game drives for 12 hours all 8 days!!!!

We saw 2 leopard kills because of Kelly's expertise!

We will be using safari infinity again when we go back in 2 years!!!
