A fabulous safari holiday in Selous and Ruaha

On this trip, I visited Tanzania between 14-Jan-2018 and 27-Jan-2018 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

One of our very best trips. We had done many previous safaris but always in the dry season. While going in the green season has some downsides (much thicker bush and some areas were inaccessible due to flooding) the scenery was more attractive and we still had excellent game viewing while the bird life was significantly more abundant than in the dry season. Combining Selous with Ruaha provided good contrast and meant that we saw a wider range of game than remaining in just one reserve.

Great safari coupled with R&R on the beach

On this trip, I visited Tanzania between 8-Nov-2015 and 23-Nov-2015 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Our safari in Selous and Ruaha compared very favourably with other safari holidays we have had in southern Africa. A few days at Ras Kutani was an ideal way to relax at the end of our trip.

All the travel arrangements worked well.

The staff in all the places where we stayed were invariably very welcoming, friendly and helpful.

Altogether a wonderful holiday.

A fabulous trip - although Expert Africa was only responsible for the first week (in Botswana) and the flights / car hire - which worked according to our booking.
