Our magical trip to Tanzania and Zanzibar

On this trip, I visited Tanzania & Zanzibar between 14-Jan-2008 and 25-Jan-2008 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Totally amazing. Thanks Claire for the great advice for our safari - the only disappointment (which at the time was quite considerable) was our stay at Matemwe.

We really feel that it is not an overreaction to say to you NOT to recommend Matermwe Bungalows until the new management have found their feet and sorted a few of the issues out (staff, stocks of drink etc). - otherwise it will only resort in more dissatisfied customers and the place getting a bad name.

Great brochure and website. Claire was most helpful. Fantastic advise given regarding the Selous Impala camp - it way exceeded our expectations, so much so that my parents and relations may be considering going out to that very camp in the autumn this year!

We were unfortunate with our stay at Matemwe Bungalows - presumably you didn't know of any plans for a change of management when we booked last November ??

Thanks though - on the whole a totally fab holiday
