Northern Tanzania trip February 2017

Tanzania between 19 Feb 2017 and 23 Feb 2017

Trip rating: Excellent
"The response, information and suggestions we received from Ellie Walkingshaw were great.

Initially I was operating under the delusion that I could self drive, while that is not a type of tour that Expert Africa helps with she was still quite helpful making some suggestions. As it became obvious that we would need more help with both the driving and the booking at Ndutu Lodge, she was able to step in and work with our available dates.

I would wholeheartedly recommend them based on our trip and experience with them.

These travellers commented about their guide:

John was incredible!

I could go on and on about John. He was punctual and courteous and all that. He was very well informed, very knowledgable and very personable. He was both a very skilled driver (and in certain circumstances with some very rainy weather this was tested) as well as a very knowledgable guide.

What my wife and I both felt that was after driving for an hour or two up from Arusha he was like an old friend. He had great insight into the local area, his knowledge of the flora and fauna in the parks were amazing, his ability to drive, spot animals and give us information on what we were seeing was superb."

"Rhoda Valley comments"

2 nights Arrived 19 Feb 2017
"Beautiful location! The staff were great, the food was of excellent quality. The tents were well designed to be comfortable and the deck had a wonderful view into the valley. We spent two nights there.

First day was after the drive up from Arusha and spending a half day driving through Lake Manyara National Park. The second day we returned to Lake Manyara and did a walking tour of Mto wa Mbu, arriving back to the Lodge late afternoon.

We didn't end up visiting the school or doing any of the walking tours from the Lodge, though we had wanted to initially, with the two half days at Lake Manyara (a suggestion from our driver and a good one!) we just did not have the time."

Ndutu Safari Lodge

Ndutu Safari Lodge

"Ndutu Safari Lodge comments"

2 nights Arrived 21 Feb 2017
"A very nice comfortable Lodge, with the cabins a short walk from the Lodge where the food is served.

The staff were great, the food good, the location was beautiful. Cabins are well maintained and comfortable. They were very efficient in seating and serving people. It seemed to be a very well run establishment.

I had a minor issue with the wifi connection (which in hindsight seemed beyond trivial to even bring it to their attention) and they contacted me quickly about my issue."
