Buteo organized a beautiful safari for our family group of 6 (ranging in age from 25-75). Sam was responsive and flexible during the planning process, attending to every detail. We feel that we got excellent value, from the minute we arrived in Tanzania everything went very smoothly.

I had a good communication with Buteo Tours to discuss the proposal and make modifications and the administration went very smoothly.The Buteo guide we got was perfect. The lodges Sam planned were fine, most were above our requirements. Thanks again!

Sam was very helpful and super flexible. He gave us good advice on the different accommodations and customized the trip to our budget and interests. The organization was spot on, the accommodation was very good and we felt very comfortable and safe at all times.
