Activities were slightly hampered by the tide and weather.
Driving instructions were a bit confusing. We were also fortunate to arrive before the entrance gate shut for the night."

Very friendly and helpful staff."
Kwandwe Ecca Lodge
"Kwandwe Ecca Lodge review"
Very family focused with two great ranger/trackers who were first class.
We felt we were all hunting for the wildlife rather than it being paraded past us."

Lodge not featured by Expert Africa
Out of Africa Back to Manningtree
Tanzania and 1 other country between 18 Jul 2009 and 26 Jul 2009
Tanzania comes across with great credit - a very friendly country with helpful people.A water/land safari was a real plus and exceeded expectations.
Suggestions for improvements:
You compare well with other companies that we have used elsewhere in the world and we will use you as the reference base for any future trips to Africa. Mateo (manager at Selous) spoke highly of EA and mentioned that you visited the region to check on the details rather than took stuff off web sites."

Southern Sun Dar
"Southern Sun (formerly the Holiday Inn) review"
"Selous Impala Camp review"
The atmosphere was more one of a relaxed house party. Treated as individuals and specific needs explored and catered for with lots of 'special' surprises (e.g. sunset cocktails, hot cappucino with the wake up call)."
Chumbe Island Lodge
"Chumbe Island Lodge review"
Lucky with the spring tides to enjoy two inter-tidal walks. Worth three days, fewer would lose the effect of relaxing in a different way."
