My Oct 2012 trip

On this trip, I visited Tanzania & Zanzibar between 6-Oct-2012 and 17-Oct-2012 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Didn't expect to enjoy the beach/town as much as the game lodge but there was really little to choose between them - had a great time on all three legs. Arrangements were all pretty spot on. Excellent game viewing in the Selous and lovely to have the boat option; beautiful Indian Ocean setting and chilling at Shooting Star and a much needed bit of shopping in Stone Town! Fell in love with Africa all over again!

Special thanks to Angela for all her help with the arrangements - excellent service - will probably be a few years before we return to Africa, but you will be our first port of call.

Trip as a whole

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 29-Sep-2010 and 16-Oct-2010 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

GoodGood

Some gripes but overall a great holiday with lots of highlights (Ongava lions at waterhole, Etosha, Skeleton Coast, Sossuvlei, Swakopmund, kayaking with seals).

Not sure we could always see where our £6500.00 went, especially compared with similar trips. Luckily we had a great group - not sure we would have enjoyed as much if we had been with some of the other people we met along the way!
