"Very good safari and nice break afterwards."

Lake Manze Adventure Camp

Lake Manze Adventure Camp

"Great location and best wildlife"

5 nights Arrived 6 Jan 2012
"Friendly staff, good food, great location and definitely the best of the 3 camps for amount and variety of wildlife. Good range of activities with walking, boats and drives and a good variety of habitats so each day was different and interesting. Nice to be able to go out all day and not just early and late gain drives as in many camps / areas. Night drives would have been a nice option.

Our guide was friendly and keen, but in hindsight was not of the standard of the professional guide (Steve Roskelly) we had at Ruaha. Our guide new the animal and local ecology well, but some of the facts we were told were later proved incorrect. He could identify the common birds but was not good with their calls or the less obvious ones."

Selous Impala Camp

Selous Impala Camp

"Selous Impala Camp review"

5 nights Arrived 11 Jan 2012
"Although the camp rates higher the wildlife was not so good. Our guide was more experienced but still was not in the league of Steve Roskelly. The staff were all very friendly and the service excellent, if possibly over the top for a safari camp. Again the range of activities were very good and were tailored to our desires as much as possible."

"Truly outstanding Guide in Steve Roskelly"

5 nights Arrived 16 Jan 2012
"Steve's knowledge of the wildlife and ability to approach them without disturbing them was outstanding. His complete all-round knowledge of animals, birds, plants, photography and geology were exceptional and made the 5 days really interesting. He also showed a high level of regard for everybody's needs and desires whatever the level of their interest or knowledge. He could not have done more to make the time better.

The wildlife was very good, but the limit on game drives only and some of the roads were impassable to some areas meant we tended to revisit several areas over the 5 days. However, Steve's wonderful sense of humour and keenness made it a wonderful time, even if the weather wasn't as good as Selous!"

Chumbe Island Lodge

Chumbe Island Lodge

"Great huts & snorkelling"

4 nights Arrived 21 Jan 2012
"Very friendly staff, great location and fabulous Robinson Crusoe huts. It would have been nice to have had more activities, e.g. longer walks around the island, bird watching etc. The activities were also at set times so not all could be done as they sometimes overlapped.

I think you should warn people more clearly regarding the possibility of a wet crossing and definite wet landings. We were luckily wearing shorts but otherwise you would get very wet!"

Mbweni Ruins Hotel

"Nice gardens and bar area"

2 nights Arrived 25 Jan 2012
"The location was good for the beach, Stone Town & the airport but you could not leave the hotel and walk anywhere, although it was fine for one and a half days. It was perfect for what we wanted.

The gardens were beautiful to walk around and explore and the bush babies provided good entertainment at dinner."
