"Swala Camp review"
The location is a long drive down and doesn't easily allow for half day safaris but despite that the full days are so worthwhile it did not detract from the overall experience. We loved the sundowner fire pit before dinner, meeting other residents and chatting through the day's experiences.
We understand that Chris has applied for a 'walking safari' licence which will be a bonus. He did some star gazing in the evenings which was interesting ." See all these reviews: 8n in Tanzania; 5n in Zanzibar; 1n in Kenya
"Swala camp review"
The welcome was very warm not only when we arrived but after each trip. All drinks, toiletries and laundry were included contrary to information we were given. Food was great and plentiful. Camp staff were always on hand and very friendly. Plenty of animals to watch going to and from the water hole in front of the tents.
We had our own Driver/guide from Asilia who found all the animals we could wish for, making the location of Swala Camp ideal." See all these reviews: 10n in Tanzania
