We mainly went to see the eclipse, but we managed to see a few animals as well. One of the funniest moments was watching the eclipse itself - a whole crowd of eclipse chasers & local staff were sitting there with cameras & telescopes trained on the sun, & a giraffe came along & stopped to watch us. It must have stood there for about an hour - clearly fascinated !
This was a great holiday - one of our best ever.
I was very impressed with the service from Tribes - good communications & paperwork, good places to stay, & everything ran like clockwork.
Our guides were all excellent, spoke good English, and were very helpful. Special mention for Cliff & Lucy at Katuma Lodge, who were brilliant hosts.
The places you stayed
This was our first bush lodge of the trip, & it was very comfortable too.
A bigger setup than Tarangire, again very comfortable, with helpful staff & good food.
A nice relaxed place to finish our holiday, with plenty to occupy us. Good food, & entertainment every night.
We had lunch at The Rock on our penultimate day - what a brilliant venue for a restaurant!
