Tanzania 2014 - superb

Tanzania between 28 Oct 2014 and 11 Nov 2014

Trip rating: Excellent
"Expert Africa's arrangements worked very well for us; faultless. It was our first time to use them and we would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them to others.

The push for tour 2014 trip to Tanzania was to revisit some of the lands that we had driven through in 1971 with our 2-man tent. Most of the guides were not born when we first made the journey and they were interested in our experiences in another time.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

It was your brochure that brought you to our attention - we think it is excellent."

4 nights Arrived 29 Oct 2014
"A superb experience. The manager and staff were friendly and we loved the relaxed atmosphere. Everything was great inc the weather.

PERHAPS BEST OF ALL - we were invited to watch the Newcastle United v Liverpool match with the staff in the staff canteen (they were all supporting the wrong side in the beginning!). Newcastle won and we had a great afternoon with lovely people."

"Fabulous river location"

4 nights Arrived 2 Nov 2014
"A great camp in a superb location on the riverside and the swimming pool was a real bonus in the November heat.

Lots of crocs, hippos and elephants to observe and birds galore. Dennis was a top quality guide/driver and we would really recommend him and this camp. Evans, our waiter, gave us daily Swahili lessons over meals which more than made up for the fact that one does not eat communally at the this camp."

"Elephants at the bedhead"

4 nights Arrived 6 Nov 2014
"We have visited many camps in East Africa over the last 14 years and give this one, run by Nomad, extra stars. The accommodation is good and the food superb. In fact, the food does really deserve a special mention.The guides were patient and excellent.

We loved it, even though we found the 37C+ heat of mid-November a bit punishing in the middle of the day. We would go again to any Nomad camp, but we would avoid this hottest time of the year in Ruaha. Of course, the lack of water does mean that there are more animals around any water that there is and it was great fun (for us rather than the eles) watching the elephants dig water holes in the dry river beds as well as tearing Baobab trees to shreds."
