Trip rating: Excellent
"The trip itself was fantastic. Maybe we should have stayed an extra night in the selous in order to stay at a different camp. The selous safari camp was the only one to offer single night accomodation.

We found the advice and assistance of Ellie in planning our holiday most helpful and informative. She was also very patient with us!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Continue to have individuals in the office who have good local knowledge."

Mwagusi Safari Camp

Mwagusi Safari Camp

"Excellent"

4 nights Arrived 7 Oct 2011
"Pleasant staff. Always available and friendly but not obsequious.
Lovely camp in beautiful setting with good accomoadation, very individual. My only criticism is that the shower floor was very slippery and I almost fell.

Wonderful food. Loved how we ate at different sites - in the bush or in the sand river bed- in the evening. Very reasonably priced wine.
Excellent guides. Knowledgable. They seemed to enjoy their work and their enthusiasm was infective.
Lots of game. Not many other vehicles.

Would love to go back."

"OK."

1 night Arrived 11 Oct 2011
"We only stayed one night so our opinion may be unreliable. We thought the way the staff were asked to introduce themselves on our arrival was a bit demeaning for them. Some were obviously uncomfortable with the process.

The guide on our river boat safari was not as god as we had met in previous camps."

"Wonderful"

10 nights Arrived 12 Oct 2011
"Felt like luxury on a Robinson Crusoe island. Beautiful setting and beach. Very personalised, friendly but professional service.

Wonderfully private accomodation and very comfortable. A great place to relax but with a variety of activities available

I was pleased to appreciate the involvement of the resort with the local community and financial input to various projects."
