"The trip of a lifetime."
The holiday itself was way beyond our expectations partly, I suspect, because there were so few other tourists about. In some of the lodges we visited we were the only guests which meant that we were treated like VIPs. And what lodges! The Lemala camps were excellent and Maruska negotiated a very good deal for us by using only Lemala for our safari accommodation and the deal included our own vehicle and guide throughout, which meant that we could go where we wanted to go, when we wanted to go, instead of being tied to a strict timetable for game viewing. As far as the game viewing was concerned, having been told by a couple of friends that their experiences included having to vie for a view of the animals with 100s of other vehicles, we instead found ourselves to be in splendid isolation with almost every animal we saw. The only downside was having to come home." Read full review: 41 nights in Africa; 11 on a Tanzania safari

"My relaxation trip"
It was not really easy to walk too far - about half a mile to local village
When the tide is in the beach is completely covered - the plus is that the sea comes right up to the Lodge; the minus is that it limits the possibility of swimming" Read full review: 14 nights in Africa; 12 on a Zanzibar holiday
