Holiday review by Edward Stokes

Date of trip: 25/09/2013
Number of people: 2
Country: Rwanda

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "Watching gorillas at play is just such a privilege. The Northern serengetti exceeded all expectations. It was truely stunning and the wildlife utterly magical. A fantastic contrast as we journeyed south onto the great plains observing the remaining wildlife."
Tribes Service: "The trip was put together very quickly and it went extremely smoothly."
Guides: "Both our guides were friendly and very competent. In Tanzania the guides level of sensitivity to and knowledge of wildlife was superb."
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "It had the feeling of helping. However I do realise this is a minefield and there is a long way to go. Perhaps the Mother Teresa quote: that we cannot do great things, only small things with great love...sums it up best!"


Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge
A delightful lodge which allowed the experience of the gorillas to soak in.
Kirurumu Manyara Lodge
This was only a brief overnight stop but we did enjoy the views.
Kirurumu Tarangire Lodge
A great stay, the regular presence of elephants is a highlight of this very pleasant camp.
Ubuntu Camp
David the camp manager runs a fantastic ship. The service, comfort and food provided were an absolute delight. The position of the camp was fantastic with frequent visits from passing wildlife.
