Thank you Expert Africa

Tanzania and 1 other country between 8 Nov 2010 and 23 Nov 2010

Trip rating: Excellent
"We loved our honeymoon - thank you Claire for all your hard work in putting together our trip!

It was lovely not having to worry about anything - all the flights, transfers and the lodges/hotels were just what we asked for and everything worked like clockwork.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

We are very impressed by your whole setup and having only just returned want to go back, thank you Claire and team for a job well done."

Ras Kutani

Ras Kutani

"Relaxing days at Ras Kutani"

4 nights Arrived 9 Nov 2010
"Mark and his team made us very welcome and looked after us very well - private dining on the pontoon on our first night, then on the beach the second added a real element of romance for the first two nights of our honeymoon. The lobster was a definite stand out amongst some excellent meals.

The light rains, really were light with only a couple of 5 minute showers while we were there. And we had the added bonus of being there while the turtles hatched and made their first journey down to the sea!"

Lake Manze Adventure Camp

Lake Manze Adventure Camp

"Amazing safari at Lake Manze"

5 nights Arrived 13 Nov 2010
"We saw a pride of lions just five minutes after our plane landed, and before we had even reached the camp - a great way to begin our 5 days at Lake Manze. We thoroughly enjoyed the trips in the boat, and all the drives.

I think our favorite was the early morning drives with breakfast out in the middle of nowhere - our driver (Salom) and guide (Emmanuel) were excellent - full of knowledge about every animal, insect and bird. Definitely a good idea to stick with the same driver/guide pairing through your stay to ensure you always go somewhere different on each drive.

As to the animals - well having elephants in the camp, watching 3 lion cubs at play out on a drive, and then discovering a pack of wild dogs at rest in a river bed are memories we will treasure for years to come.

For anyone who wants to feel properly outdoors then Lake Manze is the place to go - my wife who is not keen on camping, thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience - so Richard and his team are definitely doing something right!"

Mchanga Beach Lodge, Zanzibar (this camp has since closed)

"The white sands of Mchanga"

3 nights Arrived 18 Nov 2010
"Thomas and Gloria welcomed us to their ideal little world of luxury - a beautifully designed lodge - just what was required after a tented safari at Lake Manze. We chilled on the sun loungers and just soaked up the sun for 3 days.

Our hosts were very helpful, and nothing was too much trouble - their staff were really friendly and the cooking was truly excellent."

"Exploring Stone Town from Swahili House"

2 nights Arrived 21 Nov 2010
"What a hotel! An amazing conversion of an old trading house with lots of original details.

For us long evenings spent on the roof terrace watching and listening to all the activity of the Town around us was amazing (accompanied with tasty cocktails and delicious food).

Great location to explore Stone Town from."
