African Safari and Beach Trip 2015

Tanzania and 1 other country between 15 Aug 2015 and 26 Aug 2015

Trip rating: Excellent
"The trip was beyond memorable.

Every Lodge exceeded our expectations and I must commend all the staff at each House and Lodge for their professionalism and attention to detail.

We loved getting to know each and every person.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

I think that all the accommodations were down played a little when I booked the trip.

I wasn't expecting them to be so spacious."

"Great place to begin rested."

1 night Arrived 15 Aug 2015
"The B & B is very clean, spacious and quiet. The staff is very professional and attentive and breakfast is wonderful.

Unfortunately, we arrived very late and left early the next morning but it was perfect to rest up."

"Georgeous Lodge!"

2 nights Arrived 16 Aug 2015
"This place was truly spectacular yet tucked away and felt undiscovered. Wow! Food was excellent, staff very professional and the gardens were gorgeous.

They even upgraded our room! The location was perfect to see the Crater and Lake and then head out to another destination.

5 stars!"

"Authentic safari experience"

4 nights Arrived 18 Aug 2015
"We loved our stay at Olakira.

The tent was spacious and hot bucket showers were never an issue because the entire staff was top notch. Delicious food, and drinks were spent with the other guests which made socializing about the days adventures a blast.

Guides were wonderful and extremely educated. Keep in mind that a safari jeep is normally shared with other travelers so cross your fingers your mesh well, if not, open a beer and enjoy the drive."

"Beautiful Getaway!"

4 nights Arrived 22 Aug 2015
"Matemwe Lodge was our last stop after a safari "high". The cottages were fantastic, very clean and each felt tucked away and had a view of the ocean and sunrise.

The stretch of beach is public but no one is there during the day so it seems private. It's a wonderful spot to decompress and meditate. Great diving, food, and professional staff. They even surprised us on our last night with a candlelight dinner on the beach.

Our only advice is if you are running low on cash stop in Zanzibar Town when you arrive because you will not want to Matemwe Lodge once you arrive (it takes a solid hour from the airport to the lodge)."
