Selous visit 2016

On this trip, I visited Tanzania between 16-Oct-2016 and 30-Oct-2016 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We were very pleased with our trip.

Some people may think it odd to spend the visit in one park, but it gave us the chance to see the different environments in a leisurely way, something we enjoy immensely.

It's impossible to pick one favourite camp due to this, and all gave good value for money.

Pretty sure I was very happy, but there does need to be a way to clear old trips without just clicking 'average' for everything, since this is rather unfair. (Trust me, people will remember and comment on the bad stuff!).

Tanzania 2013

On this trip, I visited Tanzania between 5-Oct-2013 and 20-Oct-2013 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We had a great time. Adding to the camp feedback - the trip through Dubai worked well for us/ I think it could be looked into as a possible route. Emirates were an excellent service.

The airport at Dar is a little confusing - it may be worth telling people they have a a 'pre-check'security that isn't clear if you can take your water through. Once through, there is nothing much until you get past emigration! Take a good book. After emigration most shops will take dollars.

Great trip - all worked as planned. Moments we will never forget. I think that's the point :)
