Reviews

WOW!!!!!! Let's just say, it would be very difficult to verbalize how great our trip was as a result of booking with Certified Africa. My wife and I are avid travelers, touching 16 countries so far. We usually create our own itinerary and almost ALWAYS focus on hanging with locals to gain the most intimate and organic experiences possible. Nonetheless, this was our 15-year Anniversary trip and thought it would be a great idea to allow someone else to plan the trip and sit back and enjoy it. With only an introduction call to discuss some must haves and our set budget, Certified Africa DELIVERED!!!!!!!! Creating a custom itinerary that blew our minds and expectations. We have already begun planning our Tanzania and Zanzibar trip for 2022. From me and my beautiful wife to you........What are you waiting for????????????? Book your next trip to the Motherland with the only travel company we feel comfortable recommending, Certified Africa! Richard and Raquel

I enjoyed the history of Tanzania. Learning things that I would have never known had I not visited. The people were so welcoming, appreciative, respectful, friendly. That image isn't painted in the states so my wife and I wasn't sure what to expect from the locals. But we were treated extremely nice. That was refreshing. We enjoyed the food. Almost every meal was delicious and flavorful. The spices were amazing. The boat rides, the beach, the shows at night. It was by far my favorite trip.

Every tour guide was amazing. Offered great information and history and went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed ourselves. The safaris specifically were amazing.

The entire experience was phenomenal. I enjoyed every minute if it. The offsite adventures, to get experiences on a more personal level, were my favorites!
