Southern Tanzania

Tanzania between 11 Nov 2013 and 22 Nov 2013

Trip rating: Excellent
"We really enjoyed the trip. We were very glad we did part of the trip by road, we enjoyed seeing and meeting people going about their daily lives, we will always try to incorporate this in any future safaris. The game is certainly more spread out and less abundant than many other parks, but with patience and good guides, it is all there somewhere.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Try to get a member of your staff to Hondo Hondo, we know you will be happy to recommend it when you have been there."

Udzungwa Forest Camp

Udzungwa Forest Camp

"Excellent in every way."

3 nights Arrived 12 Nov 2013
"Every thing about Hondo Hondo was great. The food was the best of the trip. There was always someone around when you needed them. The setting is beautiful. The scenery travelling to, and from there to Selous, was lovely. The walks to the waterfalls,and round the shambas were a pleasure.

The only thing guests really need to know is that if you want to do the boat trip on the Kilombero river you need to have enough shillings, as you can't pay in dollars. With haggling, and depending how busy the fishermen are, this seems to range from 60,000-100,000TSh. luckily we had changed a bit of money at Nairobi airport, so could cover it."

Lake Manze Adventure Camp

Lake Manze Adventure Camp

"Water activities a highlight."

4 nights Arrived 15 Nov 2013
"We found the lake and channel trips at Manze a real highlight. For anyone wanting to look at waterbirds, they are exceptional. The sunset trip on the lake is as beautiful as anything you will ever see.

Game is generally harder to find than in many other parks, though the elephant come to you at the camp. The excellent guides and drivers work very hard to find the animals and we did see a good variety thanks to them."

Mdonya Old River Camp

Mdonya Old River Camp

"Hot and dry."

3 nights Arrived 19 Nov 2013
"We enjoyed our stay at Mdonya, we particularly loved the animals around the tents at night, it was full moon, so we had some lovely sights.

The concentration of game was at the river, where the elephant herds added up to hundreds. Away from the water you could travel for hours without seeing any animals, but the park is scenic and we enjoyed the rides anyway.

It was exceptionally hot, any breeze was like being blown by a hairdryer."
