Overall level of Satisfaction

 
Tribes Overall: "Overall the holiday was very good. Transport arrangements were good, overnight accommodation was mostly good, food was better than we expected. Most important of all the animals were brilliant."
 
Tribes Service: "Overall the service was prompt and good, inspite of the change of rep. Brochures and itinerary was very detailed and helpful We did not feel badly prepared. "
 
Guides: "Excellent"
 
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "In the contribution to tourism then yes, but environmentally we did not pick up on any specific ways that the holiday was beneficial to the community"

Accommodation

 
Fumba Beach Lodge
This hotel probably suffered by being on the wrong side of the island. The beach was poor, although interesting rock pools etc. Room and food was OK, service was a bit hit and miss. Massage at the spa was excellent
 
The Seyyida Hotel
Hotel was very pleasant, room very good, views from restaurant brilliant. First night problem getting evening meal due to large party. Otherwise food, service etc good
 
Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge
Slight hiccup as first room not so good, but they moved us for the second night. Views over crater were brilliant. Much better than indicated in guide books. Food, service etc all good Safaris brilliant
 
Selous Impala Camp
Overall an excellent experience here. You have to judge on the whole, tent great with views, service very good, food better than expected, safaris were OK Animals were not as accomodating as in the north. Wonderful experience but would think twice about recommending to anyone on first time safari.
 
Kirurumu Manyara Lodge
This site was excellent, and what we expected. Views amazing, tent great, food and service excellent. Choir singing at dinner great. Brilliant end to a great day safari.
