My Feb 2013 trip

On this trip, I visited Tanzania between 16-Feb-2013 and 23-Feb-2013 and I travelled with 5 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:


The trip was fantastic on every front. Everything went like clockwork, we had nothing to worry about except enjoying ourselves. The three camps were stayed in were all excellent in terms of facilities, catering and staff. I could not fault Esto, our driver/guide at all. It was the best game viewing holiday I have ever had and our family of 5 did not argue, get bored or grumpy once!!

The only thing that did not quite go as planned was that I had asked for a birthday cake and Olakira camp and this did not happen. However, the camp manager at Dunia, Richard, somehow learnt that my husband had a birthday and produced an absolutely delicious cake, delivered with pomp and ceremony by the whole camp staff on our last night of the holiday and it more than made up for the Olakira slip up.

The best game viewing area was around Olakira and it was even better that were could drive off road in that area to get right in amongst the herds.

I stayed at and have reviewed:
