Africa 2010 – Good Guides Do Make a Difference

Before I start sharing photos and stories from my Feb 2010 Safari, I wanted to address one question that I am often asked:  Why do you always use Thomson Safaris?  While they are one of the oldest and most established tour companies in Tanzania, specializing only in Tanzania, I only have to turn to the quality of their guides for the real reason.  Sure accidents will and can happen, but there really is no excuse for being careless and not knowing your surroundings.  The images below show a proper river crossing, even though we had to drive a little bit out of the way to find a safe crossing, and a not so proper river crossing.  Every time I see an accident like this, I am reminded just how lucky I am to always have some of the best guides in the business on my trips.  The guides of Thomson Safaris are trained to always put the safety of their clients first and game viewing second.  Nuff said and the photos below speak for themselves.
