Holiday review by Jean Carr

Name: Jean and John, Essex
Date of trip: 10/01/2016
Number of people: 2
Country: Tanzania

Overall level of Satisfaction

 
Tribes Overall: "Looking through our safari photo's today I had problems expressing myself as the excitement and wonder we experienced while on safari came flooding back"
 
Tribes Service: "Because of a delay at the start of our journey we were able to contact the 24 hour phone in order to inform Tribes of our late arrival in Dar. Sinead was very helpful during the booking process."
 
Guides: "Adam, our guide in Lake Manze camp was wonderful. We would have been happy with any animals with four legs (or even two) but he managed to find leopard, lion and so many others almost on request. In Mdonya Old River our guide D found us Cheetah, hyena, jackal and a whole family of elephants bathing and playing in the river. The knowledge and passion of our guides and the drivers was wonderful to see and hear. I can't think of any question we asked, and there were many, that they didn't know the answer to."
 
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "The Tanganyika aspect of the holiday was focused on environment and the local ecology. All guides and drivers were local. In Zanzibar it was nice to be able to leave our unused sun cream to be used by the albino population on the island. "

Accommodation

 
Lake Manze Camp
Our guide Adam and our driver Daniel helped to make this holiday so exciting and memorable with their friendliness, expertise and local knowledge. The camp and all the staff are so welcoming it was hard to leave.
 
Mdonya Old River
We really felt we were camping in the bush. The sound of the animals at night, the muted conversations around the campfire and the dedication of all the staff made this camp very special.
 
Breezes Beach Club
A nice hotel with friendly staff and great food. One of the positive things was the fact that we could always get into the sea, even at low tide albeit if only for a paddle.

Our Memories

"Both of our safari's exceeded any expectations we had. Three experiences stand out though. Adam finding us a leopard, and D spotting a cheetah which we were able to film and photograph, we never thought we'd see either of those shy animals. The third was when D found us a group of elephants bathing in the river. We sat and watched them swimming and playing for such a long time. It was wonderful and a rare treat that will stay with us. A lasting memory of a marvelous trip."
