"We want to thank Saurabh Khetrapal and Fair Trade Safaris profusely for organizing our trip to Tanzania for our 10-year anniversary. We wanted to do a trip using local companies - which was exactly what we got. Saurabh made sure that everything went seamlessly. We made the summit on Mt. Kilimanjaro! Then we went to Zanzibar for some R&R; but as is the motto for Fair Trade safaris, we visited an orphanage which really made our trip. From there we went on safari, starting with two days at the Ngorongoro Crater. We couldn't be happier with the Ngorongoro Farm House where we stayed for two nights. The room that Fair Trade Safaris arranged for us was nothing short of spectacular! After Ngorongoro, we went on a luxury tented safari in the Serengeti! Brilliant! To top it off, the chef made us an anniversary cake on our last night, and made sure that everyone sang to us. It was an exhilarating, incredibly beautiful, and life changing trip.
Thanks Saurabh for making our 10-year anniversary beyond special!"

"We were recently married in early October 2015 and took our long-awaited honeymoon shortly thereafter to Tanzania and Zanzibar. I'd always planned to take my wife on a safari trip, having been on one in Kruger National Park, South Africa back in 2009.
Because I wanted the trip to be perfect, the planning was lengthy and detailed, yet very streamlined and painless...thanks to Saurabh Khetrapal of Fair Trade Safaris, who went exceedingly above and beyond what I'd've ever anticipated. He took the time to not only share his vast experience with booking airfare using my accumulated credit card points, but also shared his knowledge about the various lodges in Tanzania; a majority of which he'd been to himself. Saurabh was always very prompt with responses whenever I had questions, and stayed dependable the entire time. Professional, yet personal.
The trip started off with a business class flight aboard one of the world's most prestigious airlines and ended in a beautiful natural picturesque resort in Zanzibar. The attention to detail paid off and our stays at &Beyond Klein's camp and Ngorongoro Crater Lodge were wonderful.
A staff member met us at the airport in Dar Es Salaam and helped us through the foreign check-in process and through airport security. Then a personal driver picked us up at our bush airport destination and was with us throughout our 6 day stay in the Serengeti.
My wife was blown away by the hot air balloon surprise over the central Serengeti which Fair Trade Safaris not only suggested, but of course helped me plan.
Our trip ended in a tropical paradise on a very relaxing quiet natural resort in the north of Zanzibar.
FTS unquestionably got me the best rates for our luxury honeymoon travel package; and given the mission statement and commitment of FTS to donate 100% of its profits to local African community projects and wildlife conservation in the region, while hiring locals, our money could not have been better spent."
