My Feb 2020 trip
Tanzania between 3 Feb 2020 and 12 Feb 2020
Thanks you Expert Africa and Asilia for a truly outstanding service.
While we are very much in tune with Asilia's values and the consistently excellent services they deliver we do hope the trend to build only high-end luxury camps is not at the expense of places like Ubuntu and Kwihala . It is not only the cost factor of these places ,which is increasingly out of our reach ,but the departure from the real wilderness bush experience which we crave."
"True wilderness experience at Ubuntu Sout Cam"

"Kwihala sets the bar high"
Saadani Safari Lodge
"A relaxing break "
Ruaha again -but this time in June
Tanzania between 13 Jun 2016 and 24 Jun 2016
While game is a bit more difficult to see at this time, nevertheless it is far more abundant in the Mwagusi area rather than in the Jongomero area.
Of the two camps Jongomero is more luxurious and while its isolated position means there are no vehicles from other camps, this isn't the most important criterion for a true wilderness experience. For those who prioritise guiding and camp atmosphere (together with essential comforts) Kwihala offers a better all round wilderness experience, more fun and better value for money"
"Hotel in the Bush"
"Rohoporini-the spirit of the bush"
Keep coming back!
Tanzania between 17 Oct 2015 and 28 Oct 2015
This has never proved to be the case - my favorite places in East Africa never fail to provide new and exciting opportunities and the people are always delightful. Its never long before i think about the next trip!"

"Kwihala Camp review"
My Jun 2011 trip
Botswana between 21 Jun 2011 and 3 Jul 2011
This meant I'd felt we had made good choices for our first trip to Botswana and others commented on what a good balance it was.
So the advice we received ensured we had a very good trip which exceeded expectaions which were alreay high.
Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:
I cannot fault the help and advice given by Lucy Copson and Nick Hobbs - nothing was too much trouble and they really made every effort to meet my initila brief and provide alternative options.
Although i didnt choose Africa Travel Resource to book my holiday I did like the ranking system they used, which enabled us to refine our choices and keep within budget. Perhaps something like this would be a useful addition to your site."
