Travel reviews by Mrs P.S. from Baldock

Dream first safari

On this trip, I visited Kenya, Tanzania & Zanzibar between 13-Sep-2018 and 28-Sep-2018 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


It was amazing. I am glad that we had 3 nights in both camps in Serengeti. Camps were great fun and driving in open sided vehicles a definite bonus. 4 in a jeep seemed an ideal number.

We saw more animals than we could have hoped for, including 2 leopards up trees. We were disappointed not to have tour of slave museum which had been main reason for going to Stonetown.

Matemwe Lodge at the end was perfect although it was only about half full so would have been even better with a few more guests around in the evening. I could have done with 5 days there!
