Overall level of Satisfaction

 
Tribes Overall: "This was a great holiday - one of our best ever."
 
Tribes Service: "I was very impressed with the service from Tribes - good communications & paperwork, good places to stay, & everything ran like clockwork."
 
Guides: "Our guides were all excellent, spoke good English, and were very helpful. Special mention for Cliff & Lucy at Katuma Lodge, who were brilliant hosts."
 
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Good"

Accommodation

 
Kirurumu Tarangire Lodge
This was our first bush lodge of the trip, & it was very comfortable too.
 
Kirurumu Manyara Lodge
A bigger setup than Tarangire, again very comfortable, with helpful staff & good food.
 
Katuma Bush Lodge
This was the most remote place we stayed at, but one of the best - it even had WiFi at times. Cliff & Lucy were excellent hosts, & made us feel very welcome. Every night we could hear various animals wandering around outside our tent , & we could watch various beasts walk by over breakfast. Apparently they have a leopard who drinks out of their swimming pool, but we never go to see it.
 
Breezes Beach Club
A nice relaxed place to finish our holiday, with plenty to occupy us. Good food, & entertainment every night. We had lunch at The Rock on our penultimate day - what a brilliant venue for a restaurant!

Our Memories

"We mainly went to see the eclipse, but we managed to see a few animals as well. One of the funniest moments was watching the eclipse itself - a whole crowd of eclipse chasers & local staff were sitting there with cameras & telescopes trained on the sun, & a giraffe came along & stopped to watch us. It must have stood there for about an hour - clearly fascinated !"
