Southern Tanzania/Zanzibar sept 2013

Tanzania and 1 other country between 31 Aug 2013 and 11 Sep 2013

Trip rating: Excellent
"An outstanding experience for all of us. Couldn't fault it, really.

Perhaps one less night on safari and one more at the beach would have been a better balance

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

No, it all went smoothly.

As advised, we got yellow fever vaccination exemption certificates (plane change in Nairobi) but these weren't asked for so maybe we could have done without them"

Selous Impala fly-camp

"Selous Impala fly-camp review"

1 night Arrived 4 Sep 2013
"Not sure that we gained much from this but it was enjoyable.
Comfortable tents
Noisy wildlife, but that's what we went for
Good food...we thought it would be cooking over an open fire, not a roast chicken with Jersey new potatoes! It was good to have our guide Gerrard join us for dinner
Good campsite
Enjoyed the morning walking safari."

Unguja Lodge

Unguja Lodge

"Unguja Lodge review"

3 nights Arrived 8 Sep 2013
"A bit further from airport than anticipated. It took us over 4 hours to get there from Jongomero, so a tedious journey
Beautiful beach
Dhow trip exciting
kayaks not available, though offered in brochure
Interesting trip to Jozani Forest
wish we'd done the dolphin trip as other guests said that was great
tour of Stone Town (eco Culture) was a bit of a rip-off...we weren't shown much, our change from the drinks was pocketed by the guide, we didn't get the 2 hours there which we had asked for but were rushed away from the shops we were looking at so that the guide could leave early"
