My Jul 2012 trip

Tanzania and 1 other country between 12 Jul 2012 and 27 Jul 2012

Trip rating: Excellent
"Brilliant experience - need to invent some new adjectives
Holiday of a lifetime

Very well organised, with camp sites and hotels taking real care to ensure you were getting the most out of the experience
The guides in Kwihala were world class going way beyond the call of duty - not that they saw it as a duty
It shows how important it is to do your research because the camps were very different and complimentary."

Kwihala Camp

Kwihala Camp

"Kwihala Camp review"

4 nights Arrived 13 Jul 2012
"Whilst it is difficult to compare camps, this was our favourite. The guides Pietro, Festo and Lorenzo were superb, you could not praise them too much. As a result of their skills we had a great time, seeing some extraordinary wildlife. The camp was very well managed by Sarah, and we loved the informal way in which everyone ate together in the evening.

The guides 'forced' you out of bed at the crack of dawn, but we were rewarded with seeing some amazing sights.

In the main the food was good, but on a couple of occasions the meat was almost impossible to eat - this is not a complaint.

So a great site, fantastic people, with some unbelievable wildlife - superb."

Selous Impala Camp

Selous Impala Camp

"Selous Impala Camp review"

4 nights Arrived 17 Jul 2012
"An excellent camp set in a superb location next to the Rufiji river.
The wildlife experience on the river was superb, less so on the game drives, but we had been spoilt at a previous camp.

The guide's knowledge was excellent, but lacked an informal and intuitive touch

The food was excellent

The manager and staff were always on hand, very friendly and helpful.

Things to do better - style and approach of guiding as per other camp site"

Pongwe Beach Hotel

Pongwe Beach Hotel

"Pongwe Beach Hotel review"

5 nights Arrived 21 Jul 2012
"Great hotel in a brilliant location.

Staff in the main were excellent, but not getting this out of perspective, because you could give most of the staff 10 out 10, - there were a couple who gave the impression of being bored - this is not a complaint.

The food was truly outstanding and consistently so.

A stunning set up.

Things to do better - resolve the boredom - small issue in an otherwise great experience"
