my jan 2015 to Tanzania

Tanzania between 19 Jan 2015 and 30 Jan 2015

Trip rating: Excellent
"It was a 10 out of 10. A safari is a trip like no other and staying in camps makes the experience so much richer.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Your website is really good. And Claire was one of the best travel people I have worked with.

When I return to Africa, there is no question I will be calling EA!!"

Onsea House

Onsea House

"Arusha stop over"

1 night Arrived 19 Jan 2015
"When we arrived at Onsea House it was very late (11:30) and the welcome staff had very minimal English. They mentioned nothing about dinner but I remembered that you said it would be provided so we asked. There was a bit of confusion but we were finally directed to another building where sure enough, a delicious meal awaited us. Perhaps there should be better communication between staff?

However, our rooms were very comfortable and the food was delicious."

Lemala Ngorongoro

"jump off for the Crater"

2 nights Arrived 20 Jan 2015
"Wonderful place to stay when spending most of your time in the Crater. Common tent was dark but we only used it for breakfast and dinner.

Excellent service and great campfire circle in the eves. No view since it is in an acacia forest but you will not be there much in daylight."

Kigelia Camp

Kigelia Camp

"ruaha heaven"

4 nights Arrived 22 Jan 2015
"Kegalia had wonderful game viewing and we had the camp to ourselves.

We loved it, but the tents were quite hot (not shaded) and the common tent relatively small had the camp been full. We were told that they are moving to a different site on higher land so perhaps this will be corrected then. Also even one fan in the public tent would have made a big difference in the midday heat. By sundown the individual tents were nice and cool.

The staff was diligent about bringing water for the showers and the food was excellent."

Sand Rivers Camp

Sand Rivers Camp

"the grand finale"

4 nights Arrived 26 Jan 2015
"Sand Rivers had the least game and I would have been disappointed had that been our only camp. But we had seen so much in Ruaha and in the Crater that it was fine to focus on other things like the walking safaris, boat rides ( altho we could only go upriver, not down to Lake Manza) or relaxing at camp.

The pool was an important feature for the midday heat and there were fans in the common areas and above our beds.

It was a beautiful camp with impeccable service."
