Tanzania, as one of the best safari holiday destination in the world, will spoil you for choice. Over a quarter of Tanzania is taken up by national parks and game reserves which, collectively harbour over 20% of Africa’s large mammal population. During the great migration, it is also home to over a million migrating wildebeest and zebra – one of the most scintillating wildlife spectacles on the planet and definitely a highlight for the ultimate safari holiday. And yet there is much more to Tanzania than just safaris. On the coast, Zanzibar and its sister islands of Mafia and Pemba are the perfect safari accompaniment with Indian Ocean coastlines studded with glorious beaches.
“We want our guests to see the last of the raw and empty wildernesses in southern Tanzania, where you often don’t see another soul & the wildlife is abundant. So our camps are mobile, in the heart of the bush, offering a totally unique experience, where you are alert to everthing around you.”
“We wanted to share our passion for Tanzania’s people and wildlife by creating two independent camps in the Serengeti wilderness. An authentic bush experience offering our guests a unique window into the landscape & wildlife, designed to be one step closer to the environment.”
The whole trip has been a fantastic experience and everyone had a terrific time. The recommendations and arrangements were faultless. All the camps were excellent. The favourite was the camp in the Serengeti, it was the most basic but had the best atmosphere and was really among the wildlife, we had loins and leopards round the tents during the night!!!! The wildlife was more than we expected, we saw absolutely everything and more. Score out of ten for the whole trip……12 A++++++!!!! We both think it was magic!!!
The trip itself was very well organised and ran incredibly smoothly, something which is not always achievable in East Africa! The partners they work with in Tanzania are of top quality: the guides, accommodation, connections, transport and itinerary were really well thought through and of good quality.
Selous Riverside was the perfect balance I was looking for – basic and far from anywhere but there was hot showers and cold beer at the end of the day. We loved how we had the same safari guide and the same waiter for the duration of the stay, we really felt at home and still pine for David! We did an early morning walking safari, a riverboat safari and 2 full day safaris which were awesome. As a special treat we were taken far away to some hot springs for a swim…absolutely idyllic.
We enjoyed the trip immensely! We found all the arrangements faultless and the food & locations on all occasions, was exceptional as promised. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the safari, it was quite beyond our expectations; both exciting, informative and personal. It was definitely a ‘once in a lifetime’ experience. The holiday flew by and we have come home both rested and fulfilled. Thank you for your kind & helpdul advice.
We had a fantastic time – even the long journeys between parks were full of interest. Our driver and guide were excellent … looked after us very well. James provided a helpful and friendly service at all times to make the perfect safari. The trip exactly matched our requirements and budget and went exactly to plan. We came home tired but happy.
We had a wonderful time away. Lake manze camp was outstanding – beautiful setting and such great staff. So was Pongwe – again staff, food, location fantastic!
The camps we stayed in were extremely well run and comfortable, and the guides were excellent. They made sure we also got to see many of the rest of the wildlife of the region – everything from amazing numbers of Impala, Giraffe, Elephant, Zebra, lions, Cheetah and Leopard, and even Wild Dog that we had hoped to see but doubted we would be so lucky!
Just got back from the most amazing trip. Got chased by a group of hippos, had breakfast with baboon, impala and elephants and saw a large group of giraffe crossing crocodile infested water. The game drives where amazing as were the lodges. Unguja Beach lodge was just heaven. 12 steps from our own golden beach. Dinner every night was outstanding as were all the staff throughout our stay.
Selous Riverside was great with Clive and Raine being great hosts – I even organised a football match with the local school children and some lodge staff photos to follow! We had our own special meal with camp fire outside our lodge!
Thank you for arranging a fantastic holiday. We both really enjoyed ourselves and felt totally refreshed upon our return. The game viewing was spectacular, we were so lucky to see the pantheon of game on offer including hyena, wild dog and leopard, as well as a different pride of lion on each day we went out.
Our holiday was truly amazing. The itinerary was superb. Lake Manze was an experience that we’ll never forget. Having elephants eating their lunch feet from where we sat our veranda was an unbelievable sight. On our final night at Manze lions were prowling around the tents which was pretty frightening but awesome. Unguja was off the scale – Ralph and particular Elies were superb hosts and the location activities and accommodation were second to none. The trip of a lifetime and a fitting way to mark 25 years of marriage!
