My May 2011 trip

On this trip, I visited Tanzania & Zanzibar between 28-May-2011 and 6-Jun-2011 and I travelled with 3 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:


The arrangements for our trip went very smoothly. it was great to have all the transfers organised and everything handled for us. The mixture of Zanzibar stone Town and the beach was just right, maybe an extra day at the beach would have been perfect.

Selous was magnificent, Impala really was faultless, the guides very good and the team very friendly and attentive. Lake Manze was an interesting contrsat, liked the sociability and the lack of electricity and the enthusiasm of Sarah the manager.The guides I didnt find quite so good but still fine.

The only thing I would have done differently is maybe go to a different area for the second half of the trip in Selous.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Maybe a little help with the links to possible sources of info re accomodation in Dar would have been helpful to us prior to our main trip with you but realise this may be alot to expect!
