Travel reviews by Mr & Mrs L from Sussex

A lovely holiday

On this trip, I visited Tanzania between 31-Jan-2011 and 12-Feb-2011 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


We saw so many amazing animals and were given a friendly welcome throughout.

Our own arrangements at the end of the holiday made us realise that a permanent camp in the Serengeti rather than the mobile camp we chose at Olakira would have been a more satisfactory option, particularly as the Ndutu area was so busy with other safari goers. When discussing Kusini with you as an alternative at the planning stage, this aspect was not pointed out. As it happened the Migration had moved closer to Kusini (Maswa area) away from Ndutu but we were not offered the opportunity to drive out in this direction, despite staying for four nights at Olakira.
