Serengeti, best in the world, saw black Rhino and Wilderbeest migration crossing, extraordinary. Vehicles very good.
Gibbs Farm – crater visit excellent, saw loads of animals and birds.
Saadani Safari Lodge – animals more difficult to find as terrain & bush quite dense but patience yielded a lot of giraffe, elephants, buffalo.
Nomad Safari Camp – Philip our guide excellent, very knowledgeable, courteous and fun
Gibbs Farm – Entertaining, good knowledge freelance guide Malicki
Saadani Safari Lodge– Jacob, very knowledgeable but didn’t always volunteer his knowledge, slightly difficult to understand his English, however he was charming and we were very happy with all our game and river drives with him. Excellent knowledge of birds as well.
Everything organised brilliantly, only small comment, it would have been helpful to have details of change of flight at Arusha/timing en route to Saadani. Our transfer at Gibbs Farm to alternative lodge went very smoothly.
We understood that Christine was in touch at each location to check our well being and we considered this quite outstanding customer care. We would be happy to recommend you to anyone who is considering a safari to Tanzania.
Nomad Safari Camp
Accommodation was outstanding for a tent in a moving camp. Location beautiful. Animals all around us. Timings very well managed by Joseph. Game drives excellent. In camp food very good, even baked gluten free food for Paul. Only criticism was their packed lunches which were quite sparse. All staff friendly and helpful, especially when unwell for a short time.
Loved the hot water bottles in our bed at night!
Gibbs Farm, Karatu
Accommodation superb, very comfortable, open fire lit in evening. Only criticism was lack of hot water, showers at peak time. Location, beautiful gardens, wonderful organic veg, meat and eggs. All brilliantly managed by Gerd & Ann Marie. Herman & Esta on reception excellent. All staff very helpful and friendly. Managed gluten free diet very well.
Saadani Safari Lodge
Upgraded to Siri Suite made the holiday very special. Wonderful Banda, very self contained. Location totally unique. Graeme & Candy outstanding hosts. Treated us as if we were personal guests. Excursions were exceptionally good, the island and River trips both fantastic. Couldn’t manage gluten free but quality and selection of food outstanding.
