My Sep 2013 trip to Selous /Ruaha

On this trip, I visited Tanzania between 24-Sep-2013 and 4-Oct-2013 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


We flew via Nairobi where the in-transit facilities on the outward flight were very poor. However, on the return journey we were taken to much better facilities for the time spent in in-transit at the airport. We flew by Kenya Airways which were very good.

They were on-time and the facilities and service on the planes were good. However, the check-in desk at Dar-es-Salaam airport only opened two and a half hours before the flight so we had a couple of hours sitting in a not very nice area before the desks opened. However, after checking in and going through passport control you are then in a very modern area.

However, besides the downside of long-haul travel, our time within Tanzania was wonderful. All the arrangements went smoothly, and the camps and wildlife lived up to expectation. We are extremely happy with our choice of camps and all our experiences.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

None that I can think of.
