Visitor's Testimony

Journey to Tanzania, by Juan Marcos de Miquel Sagnier

Good morning,
First of all, I apologize for not writing in French. Secondly, after visiting Tanzania (Arusha, Tarangire, Ngorongoro and Serengeti) with my family last Easter, I wish on one hand, to congratulate you for the fantastic sites that were presented to us; and on the other hand, express appreciation for the impeccable treatment, that Tanzanians accorded to us throughout our trip. Some members of my family still dream every night with Tanzania and my little boy has promised to return to Tanzania when he has his own family and his own money.

Best regards,
Juan Marcos de Miquel Sagnier

Buenos días,
En primer lugar disculparme por no escribir en francés. En segundo lugar después de visitar Tanzania (Arusha, Tarangire, Ngorongoro and Serengueti) junto a mi familia la pasada semana santa quisiera, por un lado felicitarles por el fantástico país que se nos ha presentado y por otro agradecer el trato, siempre impecable, que nos han ofrecido los tanzanos a lo largo de toda nuestro viaje. Algunos miembros de mi familia todavía sueñan cada noche con Tanzania y mi hijo pequeño ha prometido que cuando tenga su propia familia y su propio dinero piensa volver.

Un cordial saludo,
Juan Marcos de Miquel Sagnier
