"Great with the disappointment of no diving in Zanzibar"

Feedback response

We are really glad to hear that this traveler had such a good time on safari, and that he enjoyed his time in the Selous, although it is disappointing that the conditions were not good for diving on Zanzibar in June. We understand that diving is possible on Zanzibar in June, however it can be unpredictable and whether you can dive or not depends on the wind conditions and also your specific location on the island. In June the wind blows hard from south to north and so anywhere on Zanzibar that is exposed from that wind direction will struggle to offer predictable diving at that time of the year.

"Could have been good...with better weather "

5 nights Arrived 25 Jun 2018
"Unfortunately we had lots of wind and rough seas which prevented any diving throughout the trip. I’m not sure if this was a case of bad luck as we’ve checked the weather since we’ve been back and it looks to be similar over the last few weeks. As we went there for the diving this was a major disappointment.

The rooms are spectacular and lovely. We had booked two cottages, one for our children and had specified twin beds. Unfortunately they only had double beds. We managed but not ideal. There is a very rough and basic wooden framed “bedroom” which has been built on the roof of the main bedroom. This was not suitable for habitation.

Restaurant good, staff very nice"
