Overall experience in Tanzania

On this trip, I visited Tanzania between 9-Feb-2008 and 17-Feb-2008 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


Very happy with trip. Once we were used to looking for animals in a very "green" Africa (after extended short rainy season) we enjoyed ourselves very much.

The weather was colder and wetter than expected in Ruaha and the contrast temperature in the Selous was dramatic.

Despite limitations of the Mdonya Old River Camp, this site had more atmosphere and is probably the one we would chose to visit again, if we went back to Tanzania. The hills, river valleys and varied vegetation made game/bird viewing here pleasurable and very interesting.
