Trouble free trip to Tanzania

Zanzibar and 1 other country between 7 Sep 2013 and 17 Sep 2013

Trip rating: Excellent
"Everything worked well apart from not being collected by Eco-Tours at Zanzibar airport, as booked. Eventually sorted but had great difficulty in contacting the organisation. Instructions on phone use /current phone numbers to use in such circumstances would have been helpful.

Eco-Tours trips were excellent - Jambiani Village tour and Spice Tour."

Feedback response

We were very happy to read that most things worked well for this traveller. When we invoice each booking we send a Notes for Travellers applicable to each country they visit. Contained within this is a list of useful contact numbers should there be any issues on the ground. In our ticket letter we also include contact numbers for the relevant suppliers who will be meeting you at each step. We're sorry that this traveller hadn't noticed these in this instance.

Tembo Hotel

Tembo Hotel

"Tembo Hotel review"

4 nights Arrived 8 Sep 2013
"Room very spacious and comfortable (would have liked a view). Construction of nearby hotel ruined sleep on final night; cement mixers working all night. Hotel management did try to stop it but with no success.. Perhaps you should monitor the effect on Hotel Tembo of this new, large hotel next door.

Friendly helpful staff and an excellent swimming pool are pluses, as is the location on the seafront."

Lake Manze Adventure Camp

Lake Manze Adventure Camp

"Lake Manze camp - highlight of 3 week holiday"

3 nights Arrived 12 Sep 2013
"Organisation of the camp and knowledge of the guides both excellent. Particularly appreciated opportunity to see wildlife on foot, by jeep and on the water. High ratio of guides to visitors and lack of other vehicles (at time we were there) gave a good wildlife experience.Small size of camp a bonus.

Accommodation very comfortable- exceeded expectations."

Mafia Island Lodge

"Peaceful stay at Mafia Island Lodge"

3 nights Arrived 15 Sep 2013
"Most visitors seemed to be here for the diving. We had to book up organised excursions to see things other than the beach in front of the hotel. The excursions were by Diving Centre Dhows to nearby islands. All excursions very good. 3 days sufficient for this location.

Lodge staff numerous and obliging."
