sat in our jeep by a river with thousands of wildebeest massing on the other side, then they started to cross right in front of us , the noise ,the smell the sheer size of the herd, truly amazing.
A lioness and her week old cub used our jeep for shade . Leopards resting in a tree 3 metres away from us, a dung beetle rolling his find across the road, Elephant using our jeep as a scratching post,Cheetahs playing by the lake side, lions hunting, hippo,s wallowing . Memorys to last a life time.
from being picked up at Niarobi to being dropped back off we never had to worry about a thing,our experience was out of this world and can not think of any way we could have improved it. Saw the most wonderful sights ,stayed in diverse accommodation which were all excellent for different reasons different reasons, a holiday of a life time.
I gave Tribes a brief of what I was looking for, I was given lots of choice and excellent advice , we changed details and added in extra days and destinations and came up with the perfect package. Thankyou Tracy and Tribes
Gideon our guide in Niarobi was exellent and our guide Mbise in the Serengeti was superb, he was knowledgeable,funny,keep my teenagers fully engaged , he exactly where to take us and gave us something special every day. Felt completly safe and cared for with Mbise, there is a special place in our hearts for our wonderful baboo Mbise
Social & Environmental Responsibility:
I felt there was a good ethos in all the people we met and places we stayed
The places you stayed
Lovely hotel with exellent staff, maybe felt a little souless
This was a great place ,you felt like you were in the wilds with a bit of luxury, loved using the camp open air showers, the campfire, eating in the mess tent, stunning veiws and really unique and exiting place to stay
Serengeti National Park
This was my favourite accommodation, I loved our little lodges with lovely veiws out to the lake and the plains, the layout felt right. Sitting by the fire with Dikdik and zebra coming for an inquisitive look, the Gennets sitting in the rafters, excellent food,felt at home here.
Great place to end your safari experience , with a refreshing dip in the pool and huge bunalow style rooms , good food ,good service and Mbise was allowed to join us for breakfast
This was the island paridise my daughter was wishing for, her face when we arrived was hilarious, her jaw literally hit the floor. Built a good friendship with our waiter Ntwana, had a few days relaxing by the pool, snorkelling in the indian ocean was like being in Finding nemo, ,tried some new water sports and had a wonderful stay.
