Well Gifted can organise everything, from Kili hike to safari and even a wedding on Zanzibar! The wedding day was organised very well. Flower arrangement was spot on, ceremony was beautiful and dinner was yummy (freshly grilled seafood). We had such an amazing day! Unforgettable memories…Jolanta Bober London, UK67
An amazing family trip, unique and special and mainly thanks to gift 'the hunter' who accompanied us during the whole journey, explained, taught and shared his life with us. If we go back to Tanzania, it's only with 'gift' as a guide.Reut H London, UK67
The entire experience was amazing and all because of the instructor we got, Gift. Has an enormous knowledge about the nature, wild animals and the entire environment. Knew to always patiently take us to the best spots, and above all he cared about our health and wealth more than anything.Michal Pinto London, UK67
