Introducing our boys to Safari

Tanzania between 11 Jul 2015 and 18 Jul 2015

Trip rating: Excellent
"A 7 day trip to Selous (Selous Impala) and Ruaha (Mwagusi) was the perfect way to introduce our 2 boys to the joys of Safari.

Great game viewing, lovely camps and amazing people."

"Great introduction to Safari for the family"

3 nights Arrived 11 Jul 2015
"A great safari experience, a great introduction for our 2 children (7 and 11).

The boat trips were excellent, an abundance of birdlife, really good viewing of crocodiles and hippos and magical sunsets.

Game drives were very enjoyable, but animals were more sparse than in Ruaha and definitely more skittish (perhaps due to hunting elsewhere in the Reserve). We were glad we did Selous before rather than after Ruaha.

All the staff were incredibly helpful, especially when our luggage failed to follow us from Nairobi. Anthony was an amazing guide, very knowledgable but also able to keep the children entertained especially with great folk stories about the various animals.

The catering was very good, they able to deal with our numerous dietary requirements.

Our camp encounters included hippos, giraffes, monkeys, bushbabies, mongoose and a genet, but we always felt safe with the Maasai guides.

Our only small criticism was that the camp maybe did not make the best of it's prime river frontage."

"Magical wildlife experiences"

4 nights Arrived 14 Jul 2015
"Where to start? An amazing 4 day stay for the 4 of us (including children aged 7 and 11). The game drives were incredible, 5 separate Lion prides (cubs playing, adults on a giraffe kill, mating, fighting, roaring and of course sleeping), 2 leopards, a cheetah and numerous other unbelieveable experiences.

Our 2 boys were spending 7+ hours a day on game drives, but always came back looking forward to the next experience.

The staff were very good, making us feel incredibly special. Our 7 year old was taken on his own lizard hunt, our guide Jeme started a game drive an hour earlier than planned as a Cheetah had been spotted and the catering team were incredibly flexible dealing with our various dietary requirements.

I was unsure about group dinners, but they were each great experience with stunning locations and very amiable hosts in Yvonne and Simon.

We had one night without water in our Banda, but what can you do when an elephant decides to pull apart the plumbing!

We would love to go back again."
