Kenya between 1 Aug 2022 and 12 Aug 2022
We had superb guides, great wildlife and cultural experiences and excellent accommodation. We particularly liked having local Maasi staff running the camps and they were all extremely grateful that we were supporting their Conservancies and Communities. It was definitely worth the wait!
Thank you Jessica!"

Selous - Ruaha August 2015
Tanzania between 18 Aug 2015 and 27 Aug 2015
It was well planned by Expert Africa (thanks again Ellie Dunkels!) and the whole trip went smoothly from start to finish. We were glad that we had chosen just two camps this time with four nights at each as it meant we had time to relax and enjoy the lovely environment of both camps and have plenty of time for drives, a walk and boat trips. We were able to observe the animals at close quarters and just really enjoy being in their company. All the staff and guides at Impala and River Lodge were first class.
Thank you everyone!"

Super Summer Safari
Tanzania between 29 Jul 2013 and 8 Aug 2013
We loved the fact that we came across the wildlife just driving rather than going in search of something particular and following all the other jeeps. Had we flown to the different locations, we would not have seen the rhino being darted by rangers when she had ventured out of the safety of the Park! What a thrill that was!
We were impressed by the quality and cleanliness of the various washrooms in the National Parks and by the mobile phone signal which I could get in the Serengeti, but not in my home in Wales!!
We had a fabulous time. We saw over 80 different creatures, including the Big Five and two leopard and cheetah sightings and I'm sure we will find many more as we sift through our couple of thousand photos. Our driver was superb and the staff in the bush camps couldn't have been more helpful. Although we did feel slightly short-changed by the 'personal mobile camps' this in no way detracted from the overall experience, which we will never forget.
We would particularly like to thank Eleanor Dunkels for arranging the taxi from Arusha to Nairobi, when our flight from Kilimanjaro was cancelled and it looked like we would have to stay in Arusha whilst new flights were arranged."

Based on this feedback we have renamed the property Serengeti Green Camp and updated the write-up to more accurately describe the current experience it offers. We are sorry that this camp did not offer what the travellers had expected and hope that by updating our information we will avoid this happening again.

Tanzania between 9 Aug 2011 and 21 Aug 2011
We experienced three very different camps but they were all superb for different reasons. Flying from the Selous to Ruaha was amazing and we loved the contrast in landscape between the two locations. We were very pleased that we did not do the usual finishing off on a beach in Zanzibar that most people seem to do but used our time to see more of the wild, stunning Tanzania with its lovely people and fabulous creatures.
Many thanks to Liz for all her help and advice. It was the trip of a lifetime and went way beyond all our wildest dreams. Thank you.
