My Sep 2014 trip

Tanzania and 1 other country between 6 Sep 2014 and 19 Sep 2014

Trip rating: Excellent
"The service and advice given by Ellie at Expert Africa has been superb, far above our expectations. This meant we had the trip of a lifetime, a honeymoon to remember.

We had thought that doing one safari would be enough - we were wrong!! We now have to start saving for our next one!!"

Selous Impala Camp

Selous Impala Camp

"Incredible safari at Selous Impala Camp"

4 nights Arrived 8 Sep 2014
"Where do we start.......... everything about our stay was superb. Starting from the moment we flew in with a giraffe on the airstrip through the multitude of wildlife seen on our drives, the brilliant food and wonderful accommodation.

The service we received was excellent, everyone was very friendly and everything was done with a smile! In particular we want to mention our guide, Andrew, whose encyclopedic knowledge of the wildlife and vegetation made every drive a wonderful lesson.

We were amazed by the range and quantity of animals seen during our stay - from the giraffe around the camp, the hippo that visited at night and the elephants which passed only yards from our tent to herds of wildebeest, impala, zebra, lion, buffalo and more

The walking safaris were outstanding - seeing both large animals (elephants) and small animals (ants) while on foot was very special.

The range and quality of the food was stunning. We had breakfast in the bush each day, two-courses at lunch and then four-course evening meal under the stars. It was impossible to go hungry at this camp! There was almost too much food!

We would highly recommend this camp and would love to visit it again ourselves (the sooner the better)"

Ras Nungwi Beach Hotel

"Chilling out at the Ras Nungwi"

6 nights Arrived 12 Sep 2014
"An enjoyable stay at the Ras Nungwi after our safari. We were impressed by our room, the service and the quality of the food for breakfasts and evening meals.

We thoroughly enjoyed the three days of diving with Aqaurius with great service, particularly from Cholo.

Although the breakfast and evening meals were great there was a limit in the range of food available at lunch, particularly when we were only requiring a snack rather than a full meal.

Our room was lovely, particularly with the upgrade received for our honeymoon. However, as we were very close to the sea we could often hear the waves hitting the rocks at night during high tide. It was a lovely view from the room though!

We hadn't realised that we would be so limited on times to walk in to Nungwi during the day to avoid being cut off by the tide - be aware!!"

Serena Inn

"One night in Stone Town"

1 night Arrived 18 Sep 2014
"We are thankful of the advice given to us by Ellie who suggested spending our last night in Stone Town rather than doing a day trip. It was lovely to experience the daytime and night-time of the place.

As we only spent one day at the Serena there were some facilities that we didn't use.

The room was lovely with a great view out to sea and a large balcony. The safe wasn't working when we arrived and it took a chase-up phone call before it was mended and we were able to head out in to town.

Breakfast was very good with plenty of choice and good service."
