Green Light Ventures Eco Explorer - Tanzania Reviews

Trip I'll never forget

The most amazing 12 days exploring Tanzania! Met a wonderful group of like-minded travellers who wanted to experience an authentic travel experience. I loved the sustainable aspects of the trip, including learning from the Maasai tribe. Tanzania is a beautiful country with incredible people and amazing wildlife. You'll feel like you're in the lion king! At first I wasn't sure whether the safari would be for me but I'm already planning to visit again. Thanks Green Light Ventures for organising an amazing adventure!

The trip of a lifetime

It was truly the adventure of a lifetime! I enjoyed how diverse the trip was, one day I was getting up close and personal with Tanzania's most impressive wildlife and the next I was spending an evening under the stars with the Maasai.
