Brilliant camps and wonderful activities.

Slight problem with transfers:
Transfer from airport involved waiting for others to get through immigration and then stops at various hotels.
Never informed of time of transfer to Hwange.

My Aug 2012 trip

On this trip, I visited Tanzania between 20-Aug-2012 and 27-Aug-2012 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

A lot of travelling (and expensive) for a short trip but wonderful when we were there.

Object was to see the migration. I guess this is a bit hit and miss and, this year at least, we would have been better 3 or 4 weeks earlier. We saw what we wanted but I suppose it could be a disappointment if you were unlucky.

All in all an unforgettable trip - something I always wanted to do.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Not really. We will certainly come back for our next trip to Africa.
