Accommodation

 
Simply Saadani
Tent with a View at Saadani really was in an idyllic location.  The main thatched area was very comfortable with big sofas, and a dining area and balcony overlooking the ocean.  On the last night we had dinner on the beach with Tara and David, which was like a meal with friends.  The area was very lush and green, which made for different and interesting game drives.  We also had a lovely river boat trip, watching the hippos, crocs and birds.
 
Mdonya Old River
Mdonya Old River Camp was on the banks of a dry river bed, with elephants wandering through, and had a real wild feel to it. On our last day we had an afternoon drive, which finished with popcorn and sundowners watching the elephants on the river bed! In the evenings, we all gathered around the campfire with drinks, which gave the camp a real air of intimacy, followed by a communal dinner at one long table under the stars!
 
Lake Manze Camp
Lake Manze Tented Camp was in a lovely location, with a large thatched central area for breakfast, lunch and evening drinks. Dinner was also served communally, outside by a campfire under palm trees. On the afternoon we arrived, we had a boat trip on the lake. The following morning, we had a game drive with breakfast in the bush, and a bush walk in the afternoon. We had a lot of variety in a short space of time, and enjoyed seeing the area from different perspectives.
