A really striking trip

Tanzania between 19 Oct 2009 and 27 Oct 2009

Trip rating: Excellent
"It was a wonderful trip - we never expected to see quite so much game, and to have quite such close encounters.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

This is not a criticism - just a suggestion... There's a lot of literature sent out and it might be helpful if some of the salient points, such as baggage weight restrictions and the requirement for yellow fever innoculations, could be emphasised either by e-mail or over the phone once a booking is confirmed."

Lake Manze Adventure Camp

Lake Manze Adventure Camp

"Elephants and genet cats at Lake Manze Camp"

2 nights Arrived 20 Oct 2009
"We had an eagle-eyed young guide at the camp, who turned our stay here into an amazing wildlife adventure. He was quite determined we should see a leopard - and he delivered big time, showing us not only a leopard but also a leopard cub. To cap it all, on our return to the camp we came across a pack of wild dogs out hunting.

Set out along a route used by elephants, the camp itself offered good wildlife viewing - lots of the great grey creatures lumbered past our tents, while woodpeckers, squirrels and genet cats inhabited the trees. The tented accommodation was comfortable and well laid out to take in lake and game views."

Selous Impala fly-camp

Selous Impala fly-camp

"Lions as neighbours at Selous Impala fly-camp"

1 night Arrived 22 Oct 2009
"We stopped to look at a pride of about eight lions just moments before reaching Selous Impala fly-camp. At first it seemed very daunting that these magnificent creatures were our neighbours but given the camp's staff of six, including a ranger with a gun, we gradually chilled out. And we enjoyed the ingenuity of the facilities, complete with wash tent with canvas bucket shower.

The luxury extended to a dining area where the white jacketed chef served wonderful cuisine. Our guide was enormously knowledgeable and entertaining, regaling us with animal stories in the evening and taking us on a walking safari the next morning when we saw the tracks of much game that had been walking almost beside out tents the night before - from leopard and lion to buffalo and hyena."

Sand Rivers Camp

Sand Rivers Camp

"Nature and luxury at Sand Rivers Camp"

3 nights Arrived 23 Oct 2009
"What a wonderful balance of laid-back luxury and game viewing. We had a superb guide who kept conjuring up lions and elephants - amongst much other game.

Highlights included a walking safari where we came (reasonably) close to a herd of elephants; a beautiful boat trip amongst crocodiles and hippos; and a stunning game drive amidst giraffes and a host of storks and weaver birds.

Menatime the hospitality and food here was second to none."
