5.0 out of 5 stars A must read and take book for the Tanzania Safari-Goer Oct. 21 2007
By Eugene Loopesko - Published on Amazon.com
I recently returned from a Safari to Tanzania, mainly centered around animal and native peoples visiting. I found this book invaluable as a background read before the visit, and also during the visit.It is well written and covers the highlights in a very succint and informative manner. It is portable as well, and I referred to it many times during the two week trip. Afterwards I also used it frequestly in organizing the myriad of photos taken on the trip.

Forget other travel books if you want to go to Northern Tanzania. This is the only one you'll need. It covers everything.
Supplement this with information from reputable websites, and you'll easily be able to discover the best way to plan your trip.

I've succesfully planned a 2 week Northern Tanzania safari using this book and a couple of websites.

5.0 out of 5 stars thoughtful comments on culture & tourism July 22 2008
By Anne C. Flueckiger - Published on Amazon.com
I've guided several trips to Tanzania (climbing Kili and Serengeti safari) and I found this book very helpful (especially since I had no prior experience in the region). I appreciated the author's short essays on culture & tourism and encouraged the people in my group to read them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great overall guide for N Tanzania May 1 2010
By J. Reeves - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I used this guide extensively in my 3 day safari to Ngorogoro, Lake Manyara and Tarangire as well as my 1 week business trip in Arusha. It was an invaluable resource for all things N Tanzania from pre-trip medical planning to safari/hotel/restaurant choices to shopping to local customs. The book came highly recommend from previous travelers to the region, and I was not disappointed by it. I cannot compare it to other books, but I have no reason to think there are better similarly sized books on the region.
