Lake Manze and Zanzibar honeymoon

On this trip, I visited Tanzania & Zanzibar between 21-Sep-2009 and 4-Oct-2009 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


Lake Manze and the safari was excellent and we would definitely do something similar again. Zanzibar was good but perhaps for a beach holiday lacked the feel of the Maldives or Seychelles.

We enjoyed our holiday and everything ran very smoothly. The connections were excellent.

We chose Expert Africa because Eleanor was so positive and helpful and gave us a really good idea of what our holiday would be like.

Suggestions for improvement:

Remember to mention whether departure taxes are included.
We weren't sure and so held on to USD$30 each in case but discoved these were already included.

Another idea would be to ask the local agents to be more proactive in selling excursions or trips. Not to force these on people, but if there had been a "price list" we would have been interested but instead we were put off by the driver trying to get us a good deal.

I stayed at and have reviewed:
