A really great trip

Tanzania between 9 Sep 2010 and 24 Sep 2010

Trip rating: Excellent
"We put this into our top three holidays - but we're not sure what the other two might be! We were delighted with our choice of camps which we alighted upon after full answers to our detailed questions: which suggests to us that you made a good effort at trying to understand what we were looking for (and made us think about what we really wanted).

Beho Beho managed to create a really welcoming safari house party atmosphere (probably helped by the fact that the owner's mother "Mrs B" was staying). Seasoned safari folk might find it a little too sanitised and soft but we enjoyed it all the same.

Kwihala really does deserve a higher profile. it's not the poshest but it's for real, in a genuine piece of wilderness. Pietro was really enthusiastic. He really has a passion for lions which, perhaps almost got in the way of the wider safari experience such as simply stopping and looking at the "normal" wildlife. Also chasing the lions meant that breakfast and lunch almost went forgotten. Now, we know that nothing is predictable in the field but it did mean that on a couple days the gap between lunch and dinner was almost indigestably short.

Pole Pole was a complete downshift in pace, and a totally welcome one too. All services were delivered faultlessly and effortlessly. The atmosphere in the village was good too."

"All round great safari experience"

5 nights Arrived 10 Sep 2010
"A superb meeting of safari and welcoming country house experience. Hosting, guiding and ambiance is of the highest quality from start to finish. The Lake Tagalala day and the walks were particular highlights but we enjoyed every minute of our stay.

The bush camp, whilst a delightful experience might strike seasoned safari travellers as a touch soft. Quibbles?, well, the game is relatively skittish (it didn't stop us seeing a leopard, though!), and the bountiful procession of food nearly overwhelmed our digestive systems (we would happily of foregone the rich evening meals for lighter catering at the level of the delicious lunches).

Overall, a great stay."

Kwihala Camp

Kwihala Camp

"Lions galore"

4 nights Arrived 15 Sep 2010
"This was just what we were looking for - back to the wild in an absolute gem of a park. Ensuite facilities were more than adequate, eating out under the stars was magical ,and Pietro and Festo's guiding earns full marks for stamina and enthusiasm.

56 different lions in 4 days (including a few in camp) and plenty of close up encounters with other local wildlfe was full value. The food, whilst relatively simple compared with some other camps, was executed very well.

Going by the guest book we guess this camp is not too well frequented - it deserves more visitors."
