My Nov 2008 trip

Tanzania between 8 Nov 2008 and 19 Nov 2008

Trip rating: Excellent
"The trip was good and well organised. Unfortunately we were both `under the weather ` slightly due to a cough bug so probably didnt enjoy it as much as we should but that is life!!

It was certainly lovely seeing all the animals in the wild and appreciating how everything is inter related in the survival there.

Suggestions for improvement:

Perhaps a smaller hotel which is more personal in Dar would be nice especially after the good service we received at the camps etc."

"Lake Manze Tented Camp review"

3 nights Arrived 11 Nov 2008
"Staff all very helpful and provided a lot of information on the animals, surroundings etc.

The bird life is especially lovely by the lake and our guide was excellent. We were lucky to see the wild dogs, a large pack with puppies which was great and as we hadnt seen lions our guide went out of his way to ensure we saw a pride!

The choice of activities was excellent and the staff couldnt be more accommodating in ensuring we were able to do what we wanted.

We enjoyed the trip to the hot springs and it was refreshing having a swim in the pool."

"Pole Pole review"

4 nights Arrived 14 Nov 2008
"Very relaxing, just what we needed after the safari which is more tiring than one thinks!

unfortunately we both had coughs when we got there so my husband was only able to do one dive and we coughed well down our snorkels!

Everyone was very helpful and the fruit was especially lovely at breakfast. The boat trips are glorious especially when the sail was put up on the return journey."

"Royal Palm Hotel review"

1 night Arrived 18 Nov 2008
"Our only negative part of the holiday! We arrived about 7.00pm fairly tired after travelling to be told our room was still being cleaned and wouldnt be ready for 45 minutes!!

We did feel that for a 4 or 5 star hotel the wait wasnt acceptable as the room surely should have been ready by about 3.00pm for us if needed.

It would have been nice to have gone straight to the room for a shower etc. before dinner but by the time we got in the room we just felt tired!"
