The game drives were great, even with the fact of missing the migration at the Serengeti. The CC Africa lodges are amazing, the staff is very friendly. Everything is great there! It's a worthwhile experience. No one should miss it!
The Matemwe Retreat is all fantastic..and as we said before our butler was tireless!
This trip was everything that we expected. We are very looking forward to go back to Africa very soon."
Good news that overall this trip was great, although this traveller encountered two issues:
Firstly, the specific room that these travellers had booked at Beyt al Chai was occupied; only a smaller room was available for their first night in Stone Town. We resolved this by moving these travellers for that night to the best hotel in town (the Serena: about 100m across the road) – without any extra costs to these travellers.
Secondly, the Serengeti’s great wildebeest migration was running about a month ahead of its normal schedule … so when these travellers reached Grumeti River Camp, in the Western Corridor, the wildebeest had left. This was very unlucky but we couldn’t provide a solution. (The migration wouldn’t have been at Grumeti’s sister-camp, Klein’s Camp, either at the time these travellers visited.)

This was very unlucky, but the migration is a natural event, and cannot be precisely predicted. We could have tried to move them to Grumeti’s sister-camp, Klein’s Camp, but even if that had been possible … the migration wouldn’t have been there either! In late July, it was in Ikarongo Reserve, where there are no camps, and the extreme north-west of the Serengeti National Park.

Thus we’re very sorry that these travellers disliked this hotel so much – but feel that their view may have been strongly influenced by the upset of the over-booking.
