Holiday review by Karen Griffiths

Name: Karen Griffiths
Date of trip: 11/02/2010
Number of people: 4
Country: Tanzania

Overall level of Satisfaction

 
Tribes Overall: "Excellent"
 
Tribes Service: "Julie was excellent. The lower rating is merely because of the communication breakdown after my initial enquiry."
 
Guides: "Good"
 
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "All camps employed local people, our guides were local, some of the camps were powered by solar energy and measures were in place everywhere to conserve water. Presumably the wildlife would benefit from our park fees."

Accommodation

 
Ndutu Safari Lodge
A lovely setting and beautiful dining and sitting areas. The rooms, permanent and brick-built, were 'average' and the showers good. It was a bigger and less personal hotel than the other lodges we stayed in. There was no welcome and no effort by the management to meet guests. However food and service was good, and if we had not been spoilt elsewhere, we may have rated it more highly.
 
Mdonya Old River
Excellent friendly personal service, good tented rooms with bathroom areas and solar-powered hot running water. No electricity in the tents, but good arrangements for recharging batteries in the office and ample lanterns lit at night. Seating for evening meals was dinner-party style with the camp manager hosting the one big table, lit only by candles. This really added to the experience for us. An extra nice touch was the way we were welcomed back from each game drive with a glass of fruit juice.
 
Kisima Ngeda
Wonderful setting by the lake, beautiful grounds (with monkeys, striped hyenas, dik-diks and more), lovely tented rooms, tastefully furnished with good ensuite facilities at the back and running water. Hospitable and welcoming owners who spent time with their guests, pleasant and efficient service and good food.
