Plan your trip around the Wildebeest Migration
We know where to stay and when. Call 01273 923100.
For older children, Tanzania is a wonderful safari destination. The world-famous Wildebeest Migration in the Serengeti, meeting the Masai tribe, tracking game in Ruaha with expert private guides, boat safaris in the Selous with no other tourists to see, the spice tour on Zanzibar, roaming the alleys of Stone Town and beachlife on the Indian Ocean coastline are our top family recommendations for Tanzania family holidays. Of course, it is important to design a holiday that suits each family member with different elements to keep everyone interested, excited and loving their holiday. Sundowner can help.
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 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!
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!
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 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.
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!
The organisation and services was perfect especially at Impala Selous Camp which we loved. In particular the friendliness of the staff and the competency of our guides. The mix of jeep, boat and walking was an excellent way to mix up safari and see more of the fauna and flora. And what about taking a breakfast in the bush, incredible!!!
We had an amazing time. Everything was brilliant (even the baboon leaving a gift on the bed in the Serengeti!). I think Nick’s highlight was the lion cubs. I loved all the safari, but seeing the turtles hatch in Pangani was truly awesome. All the accommodation was exactly what we had hoped for. I hadn’t realised we would have a tent on our first night as well.
Climbed Kili- toughest but most rewarding thing I have ever done in my life. All lodges/ camps and hotels in Tanzania and Uganda were spot-on. Gorrila trekking in Brindi was out of this world. Thank you for recommending the chimpanzee trekking – a great experience.
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!
