Travel reviews by Mr G & Ms M from USA

Trip was great.

On this trip, I visited Tanzania & Zanzibar between 18-Jun-2011 and 8-Jul-2011 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


Trip was excellent. We weren't quite sure what to expect, and experience far exceeded our expectations. I think the last 4 days of the safari were planned around the migration, which wasn't taking place. As a result, we had 12 days of game drives, perhaps a bit much, but always found something new to see. Our first guide from Wayo, George, was spectacular. Other guides were also very good. The only part that didn't quite work, as I indicated in questions above, was the walking safari.

We found the tipping a bit awkward, since at least twice we were the only ones in camp. Several lodges don't take credit cards, and some didn't do laundry. We could have used more cash.

Overall a great trip - thank you.
