My Feb 2010 trip

On this trip, I visited Tanzania between 17-Feb-2010 and 5-Mar-2010 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


Overall, we enjoyed our trip especially because it provided us an opportunity to spend time with dear friends.

Although we were not entirely satisfied with Sand Rivers or Pole Pole, our dissatisfaction was mainly due to issues that could be resolved through somewhat more strict management of these properties.

Furthermore, what disappointed us about the Sand Rivers guiding may be why others think their guiding is superb. In other words, our dissatisfaction was due more to a mismatch of philosophy than any particular failing of the guide.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Claire was a pleasure to work with. She responded to my emails quickly and with all the information I needed.

Although we were not entirely satisfied with either Sand Rivers or Pole Pole, the reasons for our dissatisfaction have nothing to do with Expert Africa or Claire. I wouldn't hesitate to work with Expert Africa again.
