Kilindi

Kilindi

"Wonderful stay at Kilindi"

5 nights Arrived 17 Nov 2013
"Kilindi's position overlooking the sea was stupendous. We were able to watch dhow and fishing activities from our room and view amazing sunsets.

Our room was spacious, well equipped as were our lounge and bathroom areas. My only slight concern was over the completely open shower/toilet area, but we were not overlooked and the views from this area were wonderful. The food was excellent, with plenty of choice at all meals. Food was fresh and beautifully presented.

Our butler service could not be faulted. Thadeo (not sure about spelling) spoke wonderful English, anticipated all our needs and was generally very friendly and helpful. We particularly enjoyed having our meals in a different location every time. Meals around the pool by lamplight at night, with magnificent views of the night sky were particularly magical as was dinner on the beach surrounded by crabs."

A memorable trip

Tanzania between 17 Nov 2011 and 2 Dec 2011

Trip rating: Excellent
"Everything worked like clockwork.

We had good flights and the accommodation at Sand Rivers was excellent, particularly when you think how far from civilization we were. The staff were very welcoming and friendly and produced good food. On our safari rides we saw a wide variety of animals, including a leopard, crocodiles, two prides of lions, a herd of buffalo, hippos out of the water, giraffes, zebras, wildebeest, elephants, warthogs and many more.

We also saw a wide variety of birds, including Goliath herons, Marabu storks, spoon bills, fish eagles, pelicans and many small birds. We had two trips on the Ruffiji river where we came into close contact with hippos and crocs and had sundowners on the shore at sun set which was magical.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and was willing to spend as much time as we asked at various viewing points. We can strongly recommend leaving the Camp very early and having breakfast on safari.

Sand Rivers Camp

Sand Rivers Camp

"wonderful camp and location"

6 nights Arrived 18 Nov 2011
"The camp was excellent. Rooms were very well equipped and we had a wonderful view of the river with hippos, crocs, waterbucks and lots of birds to watch from our balcony.

The staff were helpful and friendly and tried very hard to give us a varied menu, including an interesting range of cakes for afternoon tea.

Our guide was very helpful and knowledgeable and we got on well with him."
