Trip rating: Excellent
"A fantasitc trip. I really can't fault it.

Beautiful and contrasting places to stay with universally friendly staff and amazing wildlife encounters that I'm sure we will still be talking about in many years to come!

Extremely efficient organisation meant all we had to do was enjoy! Thinking of our next trip already!

Thank you.

Suggestions for improvement:

I really can't think of any!"

Lake Manze Adventure Camp

Lake Manze Adventure Camp

"Lake Manze Tented Camp review"

4 nights Arrived 7 Sep 2008
"A beautiful camp in a fantastic location. Loads of game, both on safari and in camp, and magical sunset boat trips on the lake.

What really sets this place apart however is the managment team of Paulo and Dia and the rest of the staff who make you feel like you're staying with close friends.

Magical!"

Ruaha River Lodge

Ruaha River Lodge

"Ruaha River Lodge review"

4 nights Arrived 11 Sep 2008
"Spacious bandas in a fantastic location on the Ruaha river - great for verandah safaris! The restaurant up on the kopie is spectacular as was the BBQ by candlelight on the banks of the river.

The game drives were fantastic - particularly the full day drives as the greatest game densities were quite far afield. Also particularly recommend the game walk along the river."

Shooting Star Lodge

"Shooting Star Lodge review"

4 nights Arrived 15 Sep 2008
"An idyllic location where days pass all too quickly!

Don't miss the lobster dinner on the beach - its definitely worth it!

The only slight negative was that whilst all the Sea View Cottages are great some are better than others and there was quite a difference between our two cottages."

Zanzibar Coffee House

"Zanzibar Coffee House review"

2 nights Arrived 19 Sep 2008
"If you want to be in the thick of the action in Stone Town this is perfect - minutes from the market and only a little further from the waterfront.

You may have to watch where you step in the narrow alleyway outside but inside it's a beautiful oasis and the views from the rooftop terrace are fantastic."
