My Sep 2008 trip

Tanzania between 6 Sep 2008 and 19 Sep 2008

Trip rating: Excellent
"We wanted the holiday of a lifetime to celebrate our silver wedding and all of our hopes were exceeded. this was our first holiday in Africa but probably won't be our last.

Safari was outstanding at Sand Rivers - you really felt that you were the only people there at times.

Mafia is almost undeveloped and gives a very authenic view of the area and its people."

Sand Rivers Camp

Sand Rivers Camp

"Best holiday ever at Sand Rivers"

5 nights Arrived 7 Sep 2008
"A very well run camp which gives a feeling that you really matter. Your itinery is completely controlled by you and the staff make every effort to accommodate your needs.

Accommodation was outstanding and the housekeeping ets was first class.

Guiding was first class with the guides demonstrating comprehensive knowledge of all aspects of the area's flara and fauna. I had the feeling that every guest felt that their guide was excellent.

Could make more of the fishing potential but I believe that steps are being taken to do this."

"One for the eco-conscious holidaymaker"

2 nights Arrived 12 Sep 2008
"Accommodation was very good - obviously designed to be ecologically sound.

Didn't quite understand the use of powdered milk - "we don't have a cow or a fridge" - however the beer was cold and obviously not brewed on site.

Food was excellent - my wife does not eat fish and fish is the staple diet here - however perfectly acceptable alternatives were offered. The dinner table was very sociable and enjoyable.

The lack of a beach on site could be good reason for having a sun lounger available for each room - for use when you are not out on activities.

I was actively discouraged from fishing but found out at Pole Pole that it can be organised easily."
