Holiday review by Mr Trevor Hubbard

Date of trip: 26/01/2015
Number of people: 2
Country: South Africa

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "It delivered everything we wanted. South Africa is an amazing place."
Tribes Service: "Yes and Tracy's advice was very sound."
Guides: "Being met at the aeroplane door by a Tribes representative and being helped through customs and the airport was brilliant. The guides at Thanda and Rocktail Beach were first class."
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Yes. I think it worked both ways."


AmaZulu Lodge
For a motel it was very good. Nice surroundings
Four Rosmead
In 40 years of business and social travel,we have never experienced such immaculate attention to detail. Lovely rooms,people and service. When we go back to Cape Town we will stay there.
Rocktail Beach Camp
It lived up to everything we expected.The welcome from Natalie and Willem was first class and they were very efficient. The accomodation was very good. The food was superb, and the chef gave a personal service to me being Coeliac.
Thanda Tented Safari Camp
The game drives were super and we saw the big 5. The tent accommodation was remote but great. It even had a bath!The food was very good and they catered for my Coeliac diet incredibly well.As soon as we arrived they assured me that they knew of my requirements.

Our Memories

"Cape Town and the surrounding area. Thanda Game reserve, and witnessing White Rhinos mating. This had not been witnessed before in the last 7 years by our guide. In St Lucia visiting a Zulu primary school and village"
"In Rocktail Beach the laying of eggs by a Leatherback turtle in the moonlight."
