Client Rating for Tanzania 5/5 from 217 reviews

Very relaxed, happy atmosphere - we felt very comfortable here. Overlooking the Rufiji River and close Lake Siwandu and Lake Nzelakela. The tent, although quite small, was beautifully appointed and our tent was close to the swimming pool. Food - beautifully presented with some lovely details.
