Quite simply everything and everyone was perfect! The whole experience was unbelievable and we are still in awe. None of our guests have stopped talking about it and even when we see people we barely know they already seem to have seen the pictures or heard how unique the whole experience was!
Thank you so much for meeting us at Kilimanjaro, it really was nice to meet you having spent so much time talking and emailing and would have been great if you could have stayed longer.
We were both really impressed with the cars and the guides. Having both used numerous companies in the past both were easily the best we have used and added a great deal to our experience overall.
The accommodation, wow.... In fact one of the only bad points I can think of (there are two) was that we only got to spend one night at the Tarangire River Camp - that place was very special and it was so unfortunate that we arrived after dark and left at sunrise to keep up with the itinerary. A 3 night stay there would be perfect and I would recommend you send everyone there who does the Tarangire.
We had a really good safari in Ngorongoro given that we only spent a couple of hours there, our professional guides managed to find a lot of animals.
Four Seasons Safari Lodge we still struggle to describe just how amazing this place is. After a very long day’s drive our jaws literally dropped when we arrived, its spectacular!
The site for the ceremony was perfect and after a heavy rain shower it had real atmosphere. The Masai made the day though, we had around 20 there and they formed an isle for Hayley to walk down and chanted and sung the whole time. I wasn't supposed to turn to watch Hayley walk down the aisle but I couldn't miss that and to top it off Hayley looked incredible.
It may seem odd but we were both so taken back by the whole day and the surroundings that neither Hayley nor I were nervous, it really was so much better than we could have ever imagined or planned for
Afterwards we were driven back to the hotel and had our evening in the Boma, again amazing and the Masai again topped the bill with their performance and dancing. The Masai really have been the talk of our guests back home.
Our safari the next day was brilliant, the hotel is well of the usual tourist circuits which meant when we found animals, and we saw everything worth seeing including cheetah and leopard within 30 mins of the hotel there were no hundreds of cars parked around them.
Joshua, thank you so much for your help. Taking 13 people, who have barely travelled outside of Europe, so far out of their comfort zone, was a monumental task and regardless of our travel experience or Hayley's job we couldn't have done it without you. You planned us an historic wedding and we can't thank you enough. Aisha, the photographer, was also brilliant!
Mr & Mrs Barnett!
