Holiday of a Life-time!

Tanzania and 1 other country between 3 Sep 2011 and 14 Sep 2011

Trip rating: Excellent
"Fantastic. It far exceeded our expectations (was our first time in Africa).

We found all the dawn starts and long days a bit tiring, but well worth it. The amount of wildlife and how close we saw it was amazing.
I was impressed with the amount of help and knowledgable suggestions we had from Eleanor in putting together the trip.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

No!"

Mwagusi Safari Camp

Mwagusi Safari Camp

"Mwagusi Safari Camp review"

3 nights Arrived 4 Sep 2011
"We liked: very knowledgeable guides; the fact that guides were local people. Loved the rustic bandas, which were fantastically clean and bug-free. So very quiet (not even generator hum). Everyone very friendly and helpful.

Areas for improvement: lighting and mirror at basin not great eg for shaving. Slippery floor in shower (but quickly provided an improvised non-slip mat when requested). Safaris were excellent but little option other than in vehicles.

Good to be able to get camera batteries charged but because of limited window to do so it was necessary to have spare batteries.
Laundry service was excellent."

Matemwe Lodge

Matemwe Lodge

"Matemwe Lodge review"

3 nights Arrived 10 Sep 2011
"Lighting in room could have been a lot better.

Food was very good quality, but sometimes a menu option had run out. On one occasion we did both have mild stomach upset (after BBQ).
Our purpose was to chill out so we did few activities (only reef walk). It was good because it was really quiet. Views of boats and fishing in the lagoon were great.

Staff were very helpful and informative."

"Serena Inn review"

1 night Arrived 13 Sep 2011
"Room was a little on the small side and mosquito net not too easy to get in and out in the night.

Afternoon tea was good, dinner was great but we had to leave too early to get breakfast.

Hotel was in a really handy, and pleasant, position in middle of StoneTown near shops. Impressive historic building."
