Lake Manze Adventure Camp

Lake Manze Adventure Camp

"Amazing Safari at Lake Manze Camp"

4 nights Arrived 9 Oct 2013
"We had an amazing & unforgettable time at Lake Manze Camp. From the moment that we landed at the Selous Airstrip, we were completely emersed in our Safari adventure.

Staying at Lake Manze camp offered a unique experience which accomodated all of our needs and exceeded any of our preconceived expectations.

We wanted an informal, back to basics camp which was situated in the heart of the reserve and this was what we got. The staff were friendly, the food was excellent, and the tent facilities were not bad either. Having never been camping before, this felt more like "glamping" and we would definitely recommend others to stay here.

A special mention should be made to Phil and Trish for suprising us on our second night with a 'private meal' in front of our tent to celebrate our honeymoon. Sharing a special dinner under candle light whilst a Massai guard was keeping watch for any 'unwanted' visitors was something that we will always remember!

A second special mention should also be made to our designated guide Emanuel and driver Daniel for their wealth of knowledge and expertise of the area & of the animals. These guys made all our game drive activities lots of fun!"

Sultan Palace

Sultan Palace

"Amazing stay at Sultan Palace"

6 nights Arrived 13 Oct 2013
"We had an amazing & relaxing stay at Sultan Palace. This hotel is beautifully decorated and situated in an ideal location. It was a very quiet hotel (with us being one of only three parties staying here) but we didnt mind this having just spent four jam packed days on Safari.

Paola was incredibly friendly and helpful, and did everything she could to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. Sometimes its the little things that count the most and we were extremely grateful when she let us borrow a travel adapter and also check out of our room at a later time than we had initially booked. She also arranged a special dinner for us to have on our final night to celebrate our honeymoon. This will always be remembered!

The food here is amazing and the service is formal & efficient - sometimes too formal & efficient for us. The staff are very friendly and definitely eager to please. This was ok for most of the time, but also slightly irritating as we were constantly being watched when eating our meals and always asked if everything was ok. Everything was always ok but it did slightly detract from us enjoying our meals in peace.

We did find some of the drinks slightly expensive ($15 for a cocktail and $10 for a small glass of wine). However, this shouldnt stop anybody from thinking about staying here as we would recommend it to others."

Kholle House

Kholle House

"Good stay at Kholle House"

1 night Arrived 19 Oct 2013
"We stayed at Kholle House for one night (bed & breakfast) which completed our holiday to Tanzania. We did this so that we could spend some time in Stonetown. Although we were not overly impressed with Stonetown itself, we feel happy to have experienced a stay here and Kholle House was centrally situated for this.

The room accomodated all our needs, however we did not have the "best" nights sleep. We were kept awake by loud music coming from a local italian restaurant until 2.30am. Although understandable and unavoidable, we were also awoken by sounds from a cockerel and the local mosque.

For our final day, we had arranged 2 trips out & around Stonetown. As check out was at 10.30am, the hotel did kindly keep our bags locked away and also let us use a room to freshen up before leaving for the airport later that day."
