We had a fantastic time and really enjoyed our holiday in Ruaha and Selous.
Holiday Safari Diary
Arrived at hotel on time, we were greeted with a complimentary drink and pleasant and helpful staff, check in fast and rooms ready. Rooms clean and quiet, slept well. In morning went down for breakfast, again greeted by pleasant smiling staff, food was very good, no complaints there. All in all enjoyed our stay all be it one night
Ruaha River Lodge
Accommodation was nice, clean but noisy at night with animal noises and tramping past side of lodge, but that’s part of the adventure. Location was amazing with the view of sunrise and river in front. Service was very good, staff very friendly and helpful. Cuisine was different to what we were use to but very enjoyable. Really enjoyed our stay here.
Rufiji River Lodge
Accommodation certainly different but was clean and well laid out, again a little noisy with animal noises and animals tramping past lodge. Location was good . Service was very good with very friendly staff and very helpful. Cuisine was very good and really enjoyable.
The plane from Dar was on time and a smooth flight, we arrived at our first lodge on time. The flight from Ruaha was also good arrived at Rufiji slightly late but not a problem but the flight from Rufiji was late arriving then had to go to Zanzibar before arriving at Dar. We had to wait around airport for several hours before we could check in. We should have gone to a day room but with the flight from Rufiji being so late we did not have time to go there.
The safaris were enjoyable, guides were very knowledgeable ,there English was very good, they stopped whenever they were asked to and always could answer any question they were asked about animals ,birds, insects , plants and were very pleasant and driving was very good. They would talk about their families and passionate about their country
