Great Trip

Tanzania and 1 other country between 8 Jun 2018 and 24 Jun 2018

Trip rating: Excellent
"Great Trip with a good mix of safari, beach and town.

Seemed the timings were just perfect thanks to your advice! Safari was so well organised could relax and enjoy ourselves.

So glad we included seeing stone town to break it up slightly and the beach recommendations were just what we needed!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Everything was great, wouldn't have been able to do it without you!"

"Good for a Pitstop"

1 night Arrived 9 Jun 2018
"Decent value hotel for 1 night stay, rooms are clean and the restaurants are really nice just outside.

Bathrooms are a little dated so not great for showers but for 1 night cheap and cheerful its a good choice!"

"Amazing Place"

4 nights Arrived 10 Jun 2018
"Very Richard Branson style lodge! Firstly Ruaha was such a great choice for us. As there is only a few lodges the park was relatively quiet and you rarely came across other vehicles!

The Lodge is amazing, the rooms have the biggest beds I have ever seen literally the size of two doubles together and the have the comfiest bedding! the views from those beds are beautiful! Although you are under canvas it is definitely not camping! Mark and Tanya and everyone that works there are so lovely you really do feel like you are visiting your family. The food is amazing, breakfast out in the park was surprisingly good considering it is all packed up for you, the lunch and dinner served in the lodge were some of the best food we have eaten and it was totally unexpected out there overlooking the whole park!

Habibo was our guide and he is Ruaha's answer to David Attenborough, all the guides seem to know him and every drive would be completely different. It seemed he could find whatever we wanted to see! We saw all the animals we came to see! Elephants, Giraffe, Lions and cubs! Leopard, Cheetah, Hippo and so many others, he knew every single bird we pointed out and really made our stay! We couldn't have asked for more.

The little touches at the lodge really made the stay, everyone is so attentive, from having your little water bottle with your name on waiting after the long plane journey to having a hot water bottle in the morning drive! All my ridiculous food allergies were sorted with no fuss at all! The lodge itself is so relaxing, I would go back just to relax by the pool looking at the view!

Cant wait to go back!"

"Great Rooms and Character"

2 nights Arrived 14 Jun 2018
"This place has really great character and the staff are very welcoming.

We found the location a little hard to find for what we were wanting. The streets of stone town are hard to navigate and this was at the top of the main area so on a night was quite tricky to find.

The rooms were lovely and the breakfast on the rooftop was nice. The bathrooms were a little dated and the water pressure on the second floor wasn't great. We went back to stone town the week after and stayed a little near the gardens and port which we personally found easier to navigate with more options for dinner as in Zanzibar coffee house you have to eat out as they only serve breakfast and lunch so on the first night we were pretty tired and ended up really lost trying to find our way back!

I think for the price for the double rooms we think there is slightly better value out there but this place is great for food and we would go back there for lunch on the roof."

"Amazing castaway experience"

2 nights Arrived 16 Jun 2018
"We loved this place, so relaxing and the lodges were one of a kind! Back to basics and sleeping looking at the stars and looking for coconut crabs in the dark!

We loved the snorkelling and the beach and found it so nice to get away from it all read a book and adventure round the island! The food was amazing and we wish we were there for a week!"
