My Oct 2018 trip

On this trip, I visited Tanzania & Zanzibar between 25-Oct-2018 and 12-Nov-2018 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


My daughter and I absolutely loved our safari and bush experiences. The bush camp staff were exceptionally committed, knowledgeable, and hospitable.

Unfortunately, we were terribly disappointed with the last part of the trip in Zanzibar.

Feedback response

We are really glad to hear that these clients had a wonderful time on safari, and enjoyed their stay at each of camps. We are sorry to hear that they were disappointed by Zanzibar, and felt that this did not match up to their time on safari. Time spent on the beach is typically much more affordable than time on safari, and the drop in quality is often very noticeable when following a luxurious safari with highly attentive staff. Whilst all the beach lodges we feature are different, we feel that they all provide a good standard of comfort. We are sorry that Zanzibar did not live up to their expectations on this occasion.
