•Marangu is a safe place to visit with very little crime
•When on game drives, do not ever get out of your car unless you are at a rest stop
•Keep valuables in a lodge safe or in a moneybag under your clothes
•Do not ever try and feed any wild animal you see, no matter how cute it looks, animals can be unpredictable and feeding them encourages trust of humans, leading to interference
•Do not attempt to climb Kilimanjaro if you have heart or other health issues

The highlight of my trip had to be Gweru in Zimbabwe, it was my idea of paradise. So much to do there with the animals and the location of it was just beautiful!

The trip was great! A very relaxed ride in a mokoro, followed by camping in the Okavango Delta and watching the animals on the islands was awesome!
