"Fab safari at Siwandu"

4 nights Arrived 2 Oct 2019
"It was lovely to return to Siwandu and it was made more special by our request for our previous guide being granted.

Some improvements had been made to the camp in the four years that have passed since our last visit.

We had heavy rains towards the end of our visit and they coped well maintaining our safari programme. Also despite the airstrip being closed due to flooding, suitable arrangements were made for our onward flight."

Ikuka

"Ikuka at Ruaha"

4 nights Arrived 6 Oct 2019
"The location of the camp afforded fantastic views of the valley, however, it was 45 minutes from the airstrip. More importantly, each drive required a 30 minute journey through sparsely populated areas before any sightings could be expected. This extended the already long safari time, especially on the morning drive.

It should be made clear to travellers that they can expect to share game drives with one or even two other couples as the norm with no consideration of shared interests or stage of their stay. We had a bad experience in this regard but when queried with the manager, he was quick to resolve it. Furthermore, there was a huge difference in the two guides we experienced, though both were very knowledgeable, one was very passive, almost disinterested, whereas the other was passionate and engaging."

"Beach break at Ras Kutani"

3 nights Arrived 10 Oct 2019
"Though ideally situated on the beach, it requires a 1 and a half hour car journey, mostly on metalled roads, however there were sections of very rough roads, making passage uncomfortable.

Once there our stay was very relaxing and exactly what we needed and hoped for."
