  • We were on a week-long Safari in Tanzania and I had directly contacted planet wild safaris through the Internet, put together the itinerary through the Serengeti and booked directly. So far so good. By email (I wrote with a gentleman "Clauds") leif everything smoothly, very friendly, fast reaction and also an attractive overall package at a realistic price. Then it went off but... After it is yes no deutche Agency, advance payment was eliminated for me (the week-long round trip cost a total of 6,000 USD!). Therefore, we agreed that I can pay in cash upon arrival by credit card and also a part of. When we were in Arusha in really windy Office one has tried us then to explain that I could not pay by credit card because unfortunately unfortunately the credit card device currently is broken and you brought it to the Bank. As far as I could see, there was in this 'Office' but not even a functioning computer, let alone cable! It was a sheer lie. There have been and there at all no credit Kar discharge device. Our driver, we were very pleased with the confirmed then a few days later, as I it it addressed simpering that us. You intentionally lied to us. We had to give then virtually all cash reserves, in this case $ 5,000 USD. The remaining $ 1,000 should be paid then returning (in national currency) (if the unit of the Bank is back). We have also never seen a receipt, even though we had asked then. I had a very bad feeling about this during the entire "hearing". We just felt that it's "dishonest design" and in hindsight, it was these men so much money simply just recklessly without handing receipt. "Kevin" (no joke, was it really that) took the money itself and it brought immediately to the Bank while we sat together in the Office, along with another employee. The 10-minute, then over half an hour has become until Kevin was back again. I need here run a at this time all through the head ging...ob he ever again kommt...etc. We then but ultimately left with our jeep and our driver, but had a bad feeling, what else on us would come to after the whole thing already so off I went. In fact there was the next surprise, as we then after two days at the checkout of the first Lodge of the Director prompted were the ancillary expenses (accommodations were all pre booked and paid) another $ 1,000 credit card to pay , since this was discussed safaris with wild planet! The second lie. It was agreed that we will pay the remaining money after our Rcükkehr. Planet wild safaris had but unilaterally changed the 'plan' and on the phone with the Director of accommodation and agreed the same without putting us in Kenntins. Hence nothing left to bezhahlen us as the $ 1,000 in place, after all, the lodge had a credit card device. The remaining trip was due to our very nice guide Toni really top notch, even though it had always a sinking feeling in the Magengend what still so everything's going to happen, whether really all accommodations were paid etc. These concerns were definitely a part of the recovery and the impressions of this unique landscape. No ideal combination if you do it as a holiday for so much money. When we are driven back then on the last day to Kilimanjaro airport, our driver Toni the "statement" had once again about Arusha to go and collect the "colleagues", she would have us "bid farewell" want. Two of these dubious figures (Clauds and Kevin) then actually went and drove with a part by Arusha and attempted to realise that we wanted to be Yes according to the agreed booking originally only airport to Arusha, but now to the Kilimanjaro airport would drive and cost once again specially. I discussed back and forth and this time was no longer willing to pay only a weary dollars in these dubious characters. After we flew on to Zanzibar she wanted to know where we live, what we had before, they had such a good guide for excursions etc. They tried to squeeze out a few extra dollars out of us by all means well. The theme was done but for us, we have said nothing to them and claimed one of their guides on Zanzibar. Conclusion: A very nice trip thanks to our driver Toni, who has made himself way short on it independently, also because it the dubious machinations of planet wild safaris no longer wanted to be and of course unforgettable impressions of the unique Landscape. In this respect, Tanzania is definitely recommended. Through the deliberate lies, especially with regard to the issue of "Money", wildlife safaris, but strongly abzuratent is from planet. , As soon as it is in Tanzania, is one relatively kicked up the problem and delivered the Agency. What options does one because on-site, in Tanzania alone? Looking for a new agency, which has also time and capacity? Draw on your own through Arusha? I had written after my return even an email with my point of view the Lords, it never got a response. Why also our money they had already and then the deluge. Yes, you can save lots of money if you are looking for an agency on the spot, no German agents and travel agencies will earn but you also risk the entire enterprise. Therefore necessarily put on an agency which appropriate references can boast and even longer in the business. Planet wild safaris is but definitely urge you not to!
