Hoping for the holiday of a lifetime
Tanzania between 17 Jul 2008 and 1 Aug 2008
We had a fantastic two weeks, the two lodges (Manze and Impala in Tanzania) contrasted in style, terrain and game viewing. I was really pleased that the Selous Reserve offered the choice of game drives, boat trips and walking safaris and feel we would have been a bit jaded had there not been that variety.
Tanzania is a good to choice if you want a bit of beach time and I was especially please that we elected to go to Mafia rather than Zanzibar. A lot of other travellers went on to Zanzibar, but on Mafia the ex pats from Dar es Salaam rated our choice the better one.
I was really impressed with how everything went without any hitches. I'm sure this is no small part down to the background work and research done at EA. When time is limited you don't want to put up with the things that are usually part and parcel of travel in developing countries and that was what I was hoping to avoid by booking through a specialist agent. The time spend finding out our requirements and expectations meant that it was no accident taht everything went so well.
Your expert advice was worth every penny."
Lake Manze Adventure Camp
"Lake Manze Camp"
In this case, Expert Africa booked two separate tents for this family with two young teenagers. On arrival, Lake Manze’s managers thought that they might prefer to be together, and so offered them a ‘family tent’ as an option. They should have made it clear that if the family wanted more privacy, then the separate tents which we had arranged were still available. This message wasn’t clear, hence they stayed in the family tent feeling “rather cramped”.
We’re sorry that this happened, but glad that it didn’t spoil their stay. It highlights our advice that if one of our travellers has cause for concern whilst on a trip – it’s always best mentioned at the time, as many problems and issues can be rectified on the spot.
