My husband and I just returned from a three and a half week trip to Uganda and Tanzania and we want to share our very positive experience with Amani Afrika. My husband lived in East Africa many years ago, so when he planned our trip, he had specific locations in mind that no group tour could cover. He started looking for companies that provide private tours. We read about many operators (good, not so good and not even legit) in the forums here [on tripadvisor]. As a result, we contacted a number of companies and most liked our interaction with Amani Afrika. Godwin Temba, the owner, responded quickly, made excellent suggestions and gave us a very reasonable quote. We liked the idea of contracting with a local African company instead of US-based travel agency. Not only did eliminating the middle man reduce the cost, but we preferred to see the money we would spend in Africa stay in Africa.
