Holiday review by Gordon Steele

Name: Gordon Steele
Date of trip: 06/02/2012
Number of people: 2
Country: South Africa

Overall level of Satisfaction

 
Tribes Overall: "Excellent"
 
Tribes Service: "A few details such as addresses, locations and contact details for the venues would have made it excellent. I always think there is a big gap between making the booking and actually getting the detailed pack."
 
Guides: "There were local guides at both Kosi and Thonga"
 
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Excellent"

Accommodation

 
Kosi Forest Lodge
It as rustic as we expected, but no lights, broken generator went on for too long. Food was so rich that we would have struggled ot stay longer. Very sugary, rich, main courses. A BBQ or simple grilled food would have made a difference.
 
Thonga Beach Lodge
Cant fault it. Loved every minute. But its not a good snorkelling venue. You either need to go a few kms out in the boat or in the rock pools which have some strong currents running through them.
