Life changing. Planning our next trip already

Tanzania and 1 other country between 9 Jan 2014 and 23 Jan 2014

Trip rating: Excellent
"This was our first time to Africa. We were overwhelmed by the vastness of the country, its rich culture wildlife and complexities of its people and history. More of an experience than a holiday, we would probably concentrate on 2 destinations next time as we felt rather tired with all the flights.

One thing is for sure, once you have been Africa stays with you, and you will quite possible never look at the world the same way again!"

"Luxury in the Wilderness"

3 nights Arrived 10 Jan 2014
"Out of this world experience in the Selous. Felt like we were in the lost Eden, surrounded by animals, and yet in comfort and luxury.

Wonderful service from Staff and Guides excellent. We will be back, and will spread the word. Worth the price tag as this is one true 'Out of Africa' experience with a touch of colonial style and individual flare.

Thankyou Werner, Rika, Walter, Karin, Salum, Saningo and all. Asante Sana"

"Great location, a little tired"

4 nights Arrived 13 Jan 2014
"We were a little disappointed by Mafia and Pole Pole. feel that maybe new management is struggling, and also that the place needs some TLC to bring it up to scratch.

The excursions were very good, our guide Sadike was excellent and very friendly. Generally felt that staff were very shy at communicating, and that the island was very overrated. The enclosure of the Marine park and daily entrance fee made it feel like an us and them situation."

"Beautiful bright well cared for and relaxing"

5 nights Arrived 17 Jan 2014
"We wished we had stayed here longer, and come straight from Safari without going to Mafia. Very relaxing and lovely friendly staff. enjoyed the wildlife especially the colombos and blue monkeys sharing our place with us. Watch out in the morning! they steal your tea and biscuits!

Owners very hands on and activities organised from Dive Centre very varied, if not a little pricey. Enjoyed learning to dive with Nick and snorkelling over coral reefs"

"Myserious and Eastern in heart of Stone Town"

1 night Arrived 22 Jan 2014
"We only stayed here for one night but were pleased with location and the staff. We were upgraded to superior room on arrival.

Rooms are very dark and have a strange smell in bathrooms, but very atmospheric. You are right in the thick of the back streets, and it can feel slightly alien and unnerving after safety of the Lodge experience. Recommend getting a guide and staying for more than one night if you want to truly experience what this place has to offer.

Visiting Livingstones (the old British Consulate) for sundown and watching locals somersault on beach to backdrop of the sunset was spectacular."
