Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "We had a lovely holiday, thank you. Everything was well organised and the lodges/camps each had something unique to offer."
Tribes Service: "Our consultant was brilliant, her advice spot on, the itinerary worked really well."
Guides: "all the guides we used were brilliant, very knowledgable and enthusiastic."
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Excellent"


Camp Kalahari
Our tent and bathroom got very hot during the day, some loungers outside the tent would be nice. The food was not up to standard but I believe this is in hand. The night spent on the salt pans was a highlight of the entire holiday, it was wonderful.
Footsteps Camp
The guiding is superb, we really enjoyed our walking safaris and even managed to see some wild dogs on their evening hunt. The food was wonderful as the was the bath under the stars. A really lovely camp.
Kanana Camp
Wonderful accomodation, lovely food, a great welcome and the trip to the heronry will remain one of my best memories for ever.
AfricaSky Guest House
Very comfortable hotel, very helpful staff, well located for the airport.
Cleopatra Mountain Farmhouse
Really lovely hotel, the food is super and the location superb and nothing is too much trouble. A huge treat.
Fugitives Drift
Superb guiding, very comfortable rooms and lovely food, lunch in the new library overlooking the ravine was wonderful.
Three Trees Lodge
We loved the rooms with their verandas looking over the plains, the food was delicious, the walking in the Drakensburg was wonderful. We knew very little about the Boer war before we came and found the guided talk very moving.
