Holiday review by L&R Ayton

Number of people: 2

The whole holiday was most memorable - there were so many special times! But moments like seeing an elephant eye to eye for the first time made me cry! The turtles hatching out and making sure they got to the sea was really special. As for all the animals, fruit bats, birds were all incredible.

Swimming with dolphins will always be remembered and the sound will live on in our memories forever.

Tribes Overall:

Being new to this sort of holiday I didn\'t know what to expect but it was amazing. My husband was also very impressed having done safaris before.

Tribes Service:

It gave so much confidence to book with someone who cares about what we wanted to do, and with such great knowledge. Thank you so much!


All of our guides were remarkable and so knowledgeable about all the species and environment.

Social & Environmental Responsibility:

It was lovely to know that every single aspect of the holidays was to some sort of benefit to the environment and local villages and people.
