Tribes Service:

Booking with Tribes was easy. Emails were responded to immediately and all the information was sent in good time.


The guide took his responsibilities seriously. He urged us not to wander too far from the vehicle in the reserves, he was helpful with setting up camp and a good driver. He was also knowledgeable about the country and wild life.

Social & Environmental Responsibility:

I think that tourism is good for the local people and wildlife. Tourism gives jobs to the local people and as the tourists wish to see wildlife the locals are encouraged to preserve it.

I love the peace and tranquility of this lodge. Beware mosquitoes and I'm pretty sure that I saw a mouse or similar in our chalet at night.

This lodge is OK, I found the air conditioning and other electrical equipment noisy at night, but my daughter said it was fine for her.
