We hope you will return the, easy to complete, feedback form at the end of your holiday with your honest opinion of how (fantastic) your trip has been.
Just a quick note to say thank you so much for organising us such a phenomenal honeymoon. we got back last night and had the BEST time - it was all completely perfect and we didn't have to think about a thing. Having the whole itinerary planned for us was a novelty and we didn't even have to worry about where to next / what transfers etc because there was always someone waiting for us!
Lots of rose petals and swans made out of towels too so thanks for telling everyone it was our honeymoon - we were spoilt rotten!
I've raved about it so much to my parents that they might be in touch too for something similar!
Thanks againMasai Mara & Next Paradise Zanzibar
We had the BEST time! I have been struggling to put into words how amazing our honeymoon actually was.
By the time we got to Selous Riverside Safari Camp it was after lunch so we’d missed the afternoon trip but we went on the river safari late afternoon which was brilliant, could only be discribed as breathtaking for our first few sightings. We seen a mamma hippo with her baby on her back, would only have been around two days old. We seen a lot of birds, hippo families and some crocs, was great! The river was definitely a bird lovers paradise! Back at camp we came across baboons and two other types of monkeys, a scorpion in our room, geckos galore and some lemars!
The next morning we went on our full day safari into the reserve and WOW! I am fanatical about giraffes and my first sighting as soon as we got past the landing strip of them in their natural habitat was a little emotional, I did have a tear in my eye. The day just got better and better. We went on to see so many giraffes I lost count and impala. We were then greeted with a lovely smell and some pumbas appeared but quickly scarpered when they spotted us. After having a quick loo stop behind a bush I walked out to find an elephant walking across the field towards us, to say this was unreal would be an understatement! I nearly had to pee again ha!! Following her we seen her family emerge from the trees behind her, I think for a second my heart stopped I was so shocked as the previous day the trips had failed to spot any elephants. We followed them for a while, watching and admiring quite near. We had a lone bull come over to the truck a little later to see what we were up to and pick up some fruit; his trunk was two feet away from us!!! Wow, just WOW!! Abdullah our driver was fantastic, I have left a review on their page mentioning him and our waiter we had, Sultani, he was also great!! Abdullah took us round some thee tracks and we then stumbled across a male lion (omg!!) and his 4 ladies chilling in the shade after clearly eating too much. This was crazy as we were only feet away from them, just awesome as well as a little scary. Following our tabby lunch by a lake and the hippos wallowing in the background we went on to see wildebeest, zebra, BIG crocs, hyena, water buck, more hippos, water buffalo and baboons (which were also very lively in camp haha! We had a few laughs with their behaviour). Safe to say the day was a dream come true!
Our food was good although a choice would have been nice, that’s not a complaint by any means though. Shaun and Elené were great management hosts. They upgraded us to a tent with our own dipping pool!! On our last night we had dinner on the river bank alone with a firepit under the stars. To our surprise all the staff came out singing a local song to us with a cake to wish us all the best in married life and I did cry at this special gesture! It truly was magical. I felt quite sad to be leaving after a day and a half and two nights stay, but we were heading to our (in our opionion) second paradise spot.
The flight was short and sweet so all good there. The journey from Dar seemed to take forever, think it was our excitement getting the better of us! On arrival we were greeted with drinks and nibbles and were given two gifts in envelopes. We were escorted to our room which was lovely and were presented with a large fruit platter and a bottle of fizz! We opened the envelopes and they were a sunset cruise and an Al La Carte meal under the stars. We couldn’t believe how lucky we were. Once settled in we went for lunch and it was lovely followed by heading to the beach for a few hours before the sun was due to set. We watched the perfect sunset and couldn’t stop smiling.
The staff, food and room were all faultless. The hotel was just perfect.
We had a wonderful sunset cruise. We arranged some trips ourselves, we went out on a jet ski, went on a snorkelling trip (out of this world!), swam with turtles in a local sanctuary and, with the help of Francesca at the hotel we spent our final day at Pongwe island lodge. The food here was exceptional, the views outstanding and the staff wonderful. Upon our arrival back as a special treat we were upgraded to a beach front villa, with a butler and a jacuzzi!! What a perfect end to a truly OUTSTANDING holiday.
I can’t thank you enough for helping my dad plan our dream honeymoon. You will and already have come highly recommended from us!
Think I’ve covered everything from our amazing time awaySelous & Pongwe
I would like to thank you for all of the time you spent helping me to plan the trip - your excellent organisation made the whole trip run very smoothly. Our safari guide Praise from Maasai Wanderings was so knowledgeable, friendly and helpful and made our safari a wonderful experience. He asked what was on each family member’s “wish list” and it was certainly delivered, with close viewings of lions, cheetahs, a leopard and baby elephants!! We were out each day early and, after a full day on safari, we arrived at the accommodation for the night just before sunset!
Before we went I couldn’t really imagine what the different accommodations would be like but all your recommendations were excellent and I need never have worried! If only we’d have had longer! We didn’t get our best sleep at Naona Moru camp due to noise of the wind and animals walking around during the night, but what an experience - I didn’t realise we’d have a huge comfortable tent with running water and a 3 course meal served by excellent staff while camping in the Serengeti - and to have lions go through the camp at night, well, what can we say??!!
The light aircraft trip over to Zanzibar was a must and thanks for putting that in the itinerary - even those of us that don’t enjoy flying agreed it was part of the trip experience!
Onto our stay at Pongwe - definitely needed after the busy days on safari and what a place to relax - thank you again for the recommendation. All the staff were so friendly and the few days doing nothing but ‘chillaxing’ on the wonderful beach did us all good!
So a huge thank you again for the help in planning and arranging our family African adventure - it exceeded all expectations and the seemless way it all fitted together is down to your experience and advice. Several friends have been inspired by our trip and I will be passing on your details to them! We thought it was a once in a lifetime trip but are already saying we’d love to do it again in a few year’s time!!Tanzania Northern Parks & Pongwe Zanzibar
The holiday was all good thanks very much, you pitched it very well for us.
We saw everything we hope to see on safari and our guide Baraka was great, incredibly experienced. We saw lots of Africa as well as the animals on safari too which made it a more interesting experience.
Baraka made sure everything went well, uniformed, clean vehicle every morning, hugely knowledgable and a consummate professional. He showed everything we wanted to see.
Camps were great but the high winds made it noisy and we were pleased to have a night at Kitela Lodge.
Stonetown was interesting although we were tired and eat at the hotel which was fine for the night and we were looking for to some beech and rest.
Next Paradise was very good, they dealt with everything straight away and service was good, including installing a larger tv in our room for the World Cup! It’s a shame that the family bungalows do not have two bathrooms and the snack menu could have been wider for lunch but no complaints, it really is an excellent hotel, very well thought out and designed in a way to give everyone a sense of their own space. We scuba dived and rested!Tanzania Northern Parks & Next Paradise Zanzibar
we are back home after a thrilling holiday in Tanzania. Every one especially the little ones were thrilled with the whole experience. Every thing went well with no mishaps like illnesses ,lost baggage or missed flights. Except for a couple of items - two binoculars- that were misplaced either at Rhoita Valley tented accommodation ,or Ehlane Plains or in the vehicles ,the little ones did not loose even a crayon, which is a real record!!
Even the animals obliged as you can see from the few photos attached. The Zanzibar ones are yet to come to me from members of the family.
Masai wanderings are very good particularly Amos and Wilson the two drivers. They went out of the way to obtain a stock of Soy Milk for Shanti as the lodges had indicated that none was available on site. We are very impressed with the way Donna is running the show. The book released recently by Donna on the history of Masai Wandering is well put together and very moving to read. Mentioned this to others who were at Elhane Planes at the same time we were there , in particular one family from Seven Oak, coincidently arranged by Gina from S& B. They too were impressed with the book. We are pleased that there are connections between the places we stayed on the mainland of Tanzania and institutions offering help to those in need. Had good long chat with the Doctor couple from Holland owning the Rhotia Valley and the manager from Germany about the way they started the venture and how they provide much needed help to many youngsters.
All lodges and tented accommodations are well run and took every effort to make the stay comfortable and memorable. Endoro Lodge was a wonderful place with it's own charm so was River Trees Country Inn.
Please convey our sentiments and sincere thanks to all who provided the services to make this trip a very memorable one.Tanzania Northern Parks
The trip was amazing!! We both thought Naona Moru camp was incredible. There were elephants right near the camp. We were so well looked after and the service was great. We even had a picnic with a sunset view organised by the camp.
Godwin was our guide and looked after us very well. He knew so much and made our experience unforgettable. We saw all of the big five and even managed to see the all in one day. Seeing elephants and lions up close was amazing. It was also great to see the huge number of wildebeest, buffalos and zebras.
We both loved Ngorongoro crater, the scenery was amazing and seeing hippos in the lake whilst we had lunch was really nice. The drive both around the top and bottom of the crater was great.
It was great to see Stonetown and see the architecture of the buildings. Kisiwa house was nice but we felt the other accommodation we stayed in was nicer.
Next paradise was very good. We used the time to relax and do some activities too including snorkelling where we got lucky and saw dolphins. We also went jet skiing. We also had a very nice dinner on the beach, which Arrthi surprised me with :)
There were so many highlights including: seeing a leopard try to eat it’s prey (impala) when it was stolen by a hyena, seeing baby elephants try and climb up the bank of the river but continuing to slip down, seeing wildebeest charging in the wild.
Thanks so much for organising the trip!! It is something we will always remember.Tanzania Northern Parks & Next Paradise Zanzibar
We had an amazing family holiday (2 kids aged 10) and the service and recommendations from S&B were fantastic. Local Masai Wanderings guide (Clement) was brilliant, knowledgeable and friendly and a real joy to travel with. Everything went very smoothly which was a testament to the organisation by S&B. Many thanks to Nick and the team, we will be back!Feast Family
Safari and Beach organised every aspect of our holiday very well and it went without a hitch. After our safari in Selous we then spent a week at Gold Beach in Zanzibar. We wanted a relaxing break in a quiet quality hotel with a nice beach - and that is exactly what we got. The hotel is small (only 67 rooms) but with extensive grounds it felt very spacious. The views from the hotel were spectacular and the pool and beach were very good. A wide range of food available but the buffet on offer was largely the same. I would mention that the a la carte dinner we had on the beach one evening for a birthday was very good (as was the surprise birthday cake). The staff are very friendly and helpful and the hotel and grounds and kept immaculately. Overall a tremendous holiday - thanks Safari and Beach for what you put together for us !Alan Woof
We saw everything possible due to our wonderful drivers and game spotters Steve and Oliver who became one of the family. We had two game rides each day with a rest after lunch at camp. Our group ranged from 15-70 yrs and we all came back with wonderful memories of a once in a lifetime experience. This could not have taken place without the time taken by Safari&Beach over our itinerary, and communication with us to satisfy our needs. Well done everyone!Pat Speirs
Best holiday ever. It really was. The professional and timely approach by Charlie from the start was echoed all through the experience. She even managed to get us upgraded to the honeymoon suite on Zanzibar which was out of this world. Thank you Safari and Beach, you do an exceptional job.Peter and Ana Ireland
We just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help in booking our unforgettable Honeymoon for us. We had an absolutely amazing time, our guide was incredible and the staff at all the camps and lodges were fantastic and so helpful. What with everything else going on with the planning of our wedding, we really did struggle putting together an itinerary and all flights within our budget so it was great to have your help with this - we could not have chosen better ourselves, thank you.Natalie & Justin Seviour
What can we say - Nick & James at Safari & Beach delivered our perfect honeymoon! This has been a dream for the two of us for over 10 years and Safari & Beach not only delivered, but exceeded all of our expectations. From the first call until the day we departed, nothing has been too big or small for the team at Safari & Beach to help us with - to ensure this was a trip of a lifetime. From our very first first call when we outlined what we would like, Nick went about creating a tailor made package for us that would suit, not only our safari adventure, but our luxury beach holiday in Zanzibar that followed. Wow! Wow! Wow! For all aspects of our trip - the team at Safari and Beach know exactly what they are doing having travelled thoroughly through the region and rest assured you are in extremely good hands. To top it all off, they were by far and away the cheapest quote we received - but please do not get this confused for Safari & Beach cutting corners because this is simply NOT the case - We actually met another couple in Zanzibar who travelled the same routes on safari and stayed at the same lodgings we did, but paid significantly more. To my wife and I, it appears that Safari & Beach simply want to share their passion and enthusiasm for Africa with the world! All we can say is thank you to Nick, James and the Safari & Beach team - we can't thank you enough and will certainly be recommending you to friends and family. When (and not if!) we return to Tanzania there is only one place we'll be coming. Thank you once again for the trip of a lifetime and for memories that will stay with us forever.Hardeep & Holly
When you book a holiday like this you know it's going to be early starts and early nights, and on the go Inbetween. It is the most rewarding experience, and the mix of luxury and tented accommodation makes you appreciate both, the consistent is the level of service from all staff, and their inherent friendliness was an added bonus. The food was always consistently good, two or three choices including a veggie option, and drinks not expensive even though you were a captive audience! We were a party of 8 , with 4 teenagers and our two jeeps and driver/guides were fantastic and made every effort to make our trip truly memorable. They asked if there was anything we particularly wanted to see, I suggested a Maasai village visit, and the very next day it was accommodated without major deviation from our intended route. James and David from Maasai Wanderings are to be recommended.Morag Bennett
Could not have been better; exceeded expectations. Already planning our next safari! S&B are to be commended for their organisation.D Middleton
We had a very, very nice trip. The combination of 5 days on safari and a week in Zanzibar worked well for a company of eight with a teenager and two kids aged 6 and 7. Good start and interesting in Arusha. Serengeti was extraordinary, in particular the south but also the central part, and we're glad to have visited Ngorongoro as well. Matemwe Beach in Zanzibar was just as laid back as we had hoped for, and comfortable. Good service and excellent food. All flights and pickups worked perfectly. Thank you so much for preparing our trip.Hallvard, Kristin, Derek, Tanguy, Sigrun, Leon, Lucas and Eskil
I'm back from Tanzania and just wanted to say a big thank you for organising such a perfect holiday. The quality of the safari and accommodation throughout exceeded my expectations. I was particularly impressed by the fact we had our own private guide and driver at Selous, which allowed us to customise our daily safaris. The transfers were organised seamlessly and all drivers were thoroughly prepared and professional. My tales of the trip have inspired several friends and families, so I'll be sending them your way. I've also fallen in love with Africa so am sure I'll be in touch again to organise another trip.Roxy & Carsten
Thank you so much for your email and I am sorry I haven't been in touch before its been a manic month so far! Our Honeymoon was absolutely amazing and we cannot thank you enough. Where do I start... Firstly that was the best transfer we have ever had! to be flown across with just 4 of us in a plane then straight into a Landrover was out of this world, as soon as we started our journey to Lake Manze we came across Hyena's eating a dead elephant we couldn't believe it... Lake Manze was just our cup of tea, so laid back and everyone was so friendly. The staff especially Trisha couldn't do enough for us. We were lucky enough to see 4 of the big 5.. No Rhino's but we weren't expecting to see them. The tents were amazing and we loved our outside shower under the stars. We really didn't want to leave!! Then onto Matemwe Beach... thank you so much. We were so shocked and happy to be upgraded to the Asali suite on arrival, what a place. Absolutely beautiful, and again such friendly staff and excellent food. We felt as though we were treated like royalty, we loved our candlelit dinner on the beach and the flowers and messages on the bed each morning. From start to finish we have been so impressed with the service you have given us and you arranged our perfect honeymoon. We cant thank you enough and will obviously highly recommend Safari & Beach.Emma and Gareth
Sand Rivers was amazing - such a beautiful spot. Accommodation was great - I think they must have upgraded us cos I certainly wasn't expecting a plunge pool. Hillside villas just wonderful - all open air and you feel so close to nature. There was a relief manager (Sasha) whilst we were there - he was great, really made us feel at home and was always around to check we were OK and offer a drink!! Great guide (Ernest) - tracked down 3 lionesses, plus cubs, then a leopard on the way back to the airstrip. good variety of activities, game drives (obviously) but great river trip plus fishing and picnic, and trip to hot springs and swimming. Excellent food and very sociable at the lodge even though it was quiet. Wall to wall sunshine - nice. Echo beach also lovely. Quiet and intimate. Sue the owner had quite a few of her family over for Christmas so felt quite homely. They were very welcoming - tracked down a family game when we asked for one and even some aloe vera gel for my daughter who had a heat rash. Rooms fine - maybe a little shabby chic but very clean and individual. Quiet beach - very little hassle, nice pool and hot sea (my husband couldn't believe how warm it was). Excellent food and attentive service. Flights all amazingly punctual - I wish European flights were as reliable. My 16 year old son managed to sit at the front of the coastal plans with the pilots which made his holiday as he was hoping to be a pilot. all in all holiday of a lifetime!! So thanks for great recommendations and getting it all sorted out for us.Jo Holmes
We've had an unforgettable holiday experience. James put together a really well thought out itinerary, customised to our particular family and based on an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the country, the people and the accommodation. The travel tips were detailed and invaluable. The only thing missing was the warning that, if you happen to have US dollars dated before 2000, a lot of places won't take them even though they're legal tender. All the arrangements went smoothly and we were particularly happy with our guide from Masaai Wanderings. Nickson had a real love and unbelievable knowledge of all the animals, birds etc and an incredible understanding of their behaviour which meant that we got to see pretty well everything except snakes!Wendy
Sorry I've been slow to reply - Christmas and all that! Yes, we had a terrific holiday thank you. Very good itinerary.Sue Cole
Hi Charlie, Literally just back at home in Bath and wanted to take the earliest opportunity to thank you enormously for principally arranging a holiday of a lifetime! It was everything we hoped and so much more. We would run out of superlatives very quickly if we tried to describe the whole holiday but it ran like clockwork from the moment we had our initial discussion on the phone to the moment we landed back at Heathrow. We have so many memories (and photo's) that we will treasure and look forward to the next opportunity we have to book another trip with yourselves. Thank you again and please see attached one of the many highlights!! Karla and MikeKarla and Mike
We had the most fantastic time imaginable and the trip exceeded all our expectations. The safari was wonderful and Paul, our guide, was amazing. He was so knowledgeable that we come home well informed not only about the wildlife but also about the life and culture of Tanzania. He was incredibly thoughtful and enabled us to see everything, even spending 3 hours searching for Rhino. We even saw leopards on 2 occasions. We would be extremely grateful if you could pass on our comments to Masai Wanderings as we couldn't have asked for a better guide. Pongwe Beach was magic. The room was beautiful and the whole atmosphere was wonderful with the views, the sound of the sea and the food. The only slight drawback was the cost of the taxi to get anywhere. We only left the complex once to go out on a dhow which was great fun. If we did it again we'd probably opt for 5 days at Pongwe & 2 in Stonetown. This isn't a complaint, just an observation. We've already recommended your company to several people. Thanks for your work putting the trip together and I'll be in touch to have a chat with you. Stella & PeterStella Thomas
We had a fantastic time - by breaking the holiday into plenty of different stages, it felt more like a month's holiday, rather than just 2 weeks. Lewa Safari Camp was very luxurious and comfortable. The main building was particularly good with a very clever layout so you could sit inside and read their great library of books, or sit in a number of different places under the verandah. In the evenings, it was lovely to sit beside the log fires and have delicious meals. I loved the swimming pool! The huts were very good with everything you could possibly need. The game drives and bush walks were excellent, very good guides - exciting to see black rhino and cheetah. Kicheche Valley camp was also very good. More 'tent-like' and the main building, although very well furnished etc had a more 'temporary' feel to it. The hosts there were exceptionally kind and interesting to talk to. Had a very interesting day watching several young male lions and lionesses. Also hippo, mongoose. The Masai guides were good - the game drives were much longer - sometimes we seemed to travel for 4 or 5 hours - we went one day to see the wildebeest migration with river crossing hadn't appreciated that it was a long 2 or even 3 hour drive to get to the Mara game reserve to watch this. Hadn't appreciated that the Naboisho Conservancy is infact some distance from the Mara reserve itself. We also had a great first week when we went for a couple of days to a lodge called 'Sleeping Warrior' on Lake Elementaita which I really enjoyed. Very spectacular scenery with calderas and open plains of impala and gazelle. Wonderful birdlife, especially around the lake. We then visited Jo which was great and spent another couple of days at Malu Tree House near Lake Navaisha which was really interesting. Thank you for all your help in arranging our trip. Best wishes LouiseLouise Tinker
Hi from all of us Charlie Just got back from one of the most memorable holidays ever and it wouldn't have happened without all your help and expertise. I did tell Andrew the owner how excellent your service was, you were knowledgeable, helpful and extremely patient with all our questions and concerns -you really went the extra mile for us. Please do show this email to your Manager and let him/ her know how impressed we all were Thanks for making my birthday so special Tish Orfeur.Trish Orfeur
Hi Nick, Just back from Hols, and thought I would drop you a quick line to say many thanks for sorting all with Matemwe Bandas and Tom's place. Great stay and just the type of place I was looking for, sure Tom and everyone at Matemwe will do very well indeed and be buying the plot next door v. soon. What a great place to Chill and a real pleasure indeed. Thanks for sorting this little trip for me, you made it very simple for me..... Thank you. Jon.Jon Greaves
Hi Nick, We are now back from our fantastic trip and just wanted to thank you and your team for putting together a great itinerary for us. We had an amazing time, much down to our wonderful guide Francis, and also our lovely room at Pongwe. We will certainly recommend you guys to our friends and family. Thanks again, Lynne and Kerry.Lynne & Kerry
We had a brilliant time thanks and it is a shock to the system being back in the cold and at work!! Lagoon Camp was excellent, a great recommendation - we saw a pack of wild dogs on 2 occasions - not a kill, but they were hunting a herd of wildebeest and it was quite a sighting. Cheetahs and leopards too, so we were really happy and Fraser got some amazing photos. Tau Pan was really worth going to aswell - we really enjoyed the different landscape (we were in the middle of a sandstorm at one point before it started raining which was quite an experience) and good game viewing there too - our guide and tracker were both excellent. Cape Town was great to finish with and we did a lot of exploring, avoiding the crowds in the centre where possible after Mandela's death was announced. Weather was a bit off and on, but luckily had a few good days of sunshine. Thanks again for all your help - we really enjoyed it!Emma Renaudon-Smith
The honeymoon overall was just amazing! It was the perfect honeymoon destination for us and a really unique experience.Sheena & Navin
Truly amazing. Fantastically organised by Nick and the team - great recommendations for accommodations, incredible safari guide who was able to give us the best African safari experience and topped off by our bit of paradise in Zanzibar. Perfect!!! Thank you for making it a wonderful honeymoon!Adam and Victoria
I'm happy to confirm that the Holtedahl family has returned safely to their respective homes in London, Luxemburg and Oslo; all ten of us being very, very happy with their stay at Ngalawa Beach Village 6.-13.April. The food is marvelous, the atmosphere relaxed, the pool great and the sea-side bar, furnished with game-tables and free access to freshly made juices, was a fabulous experience. Thank you for recommending Ngalawa: a perfect choice for a three-generations-family stay.Brit & Truls
Thank you for organising a fabulous holiday for us - memories of which will last a lifetime. We have arrived back completely awed by Tanzania and Zanzibar. We saw the all the wildlife we could possibly wish to see. Our driver was charming and looked after us brilliantly. Lodges were excellent and food fantastic. As you know, we were a little worried about how the weather might turn out but apart from a couple of thunder storms during the night there were only three occasions when we noticed the rain - twice during the late afternoon after we had returned from safari when we might have spent a little longer burning ourselves by the pool and once in Zanzibar when, despite the rain, we spent most of the day on the beach as it was so gloriously warm - so, as you had promised, the weather did not detract from a truly memorable experience and in fact probably made for some stunningly rich scenery and fewer tourists! Thanks for everything!Carrie
I am just back from Tanzania and wanted to thank you very much for a fantastic itinerary. I loved all the accommodation choices made, all the connecting flights worked well and the guide was superb. I had a great time and let me know if you want to get some more feedback on any of the properties suggested by you and also Pongwe Beach which excellent. There were some minor development areas which didn't spoil the fun at all. Overall I am very satisfied and would love to go back again.Armin
Matemwe Beach Village is the perfect place to spend a very relax holiday at. Excellent food, nice rooms and one of the best swimming pools (designed and in different levels both in shadow and in the sun). The white beach is probably one of the best at Zanzibar.Erik
Been meaning to email you for a couple of months, so apologies for being so slow. Wanted to say thank you very much for helping us and booking such an amazing holiday - it was perfect from start to finish.Mel J
Many thanks organizing us this wonderful holiday. We thoroughly enjoyed the place. It is just perfect for kids and was exactly the quiet place we were looking for. I don´t remember having enjoyed such good food in a hotel for a long time. Thank you to you as well for your quick and uncomplicated services on such a short notice.Claudia P
Total relaxation!?! This place is perfect if you want an excuse to do nothing more than lie on the beach (or by the pool), reading a book and sipping a few Tusker beers.Tony
Last week I returned to the United Kingdom from the most wonderful trip to Tanzania walking up Kilimanjaro. I just wanted to write and thank you and the team at Nature Discovery. Our guide Godlove was nothing short of outstanding. We all agreed it was he who got us up the mountain and he who made our trip more special than we could imagine. He was supported by Polite who kept us entertained and charmed. The rest of the crew were also an inspiration - constantly smiling, helpful and made us feel really special, particularly myself who they sang the most fantastic "cakey-o" happy birthday to, that still has us singing it today. Pascoe served us with not only our food, washy-washy and tea, but much laughter too. I know you are the leading trekking company up Kilimanjaro and it is evident why. We were looked after incredibly professionally with all our needs met, whilst at the same time feeling secure we were in safe hands. As Godlove & Polite would say at the end of each day "good job".Elizabeth Santos
A completely amazing experience from start to finish. From Safari and Beach recommending and organising the trip we got exactly if not more than what we wanted.To finish off our trip Safari and Beach organised a week on the beach in Zanzibar. Again a truly wonderful experience. I would highly recommend Safari and Beach as they give you honest advice and recommend the best for your budget.Nicola and David Ayonoadu
Many thanks for a truly great holiday! Selous was a great success as we saw the wild dogs on 2 occassions and some great lion kills. In fact we saw a pride of 10 lion including cubs within 10 mins of landing in the Selous! Zanzibar was wonderful! The sunshine hotel was beautiful and the staff were lovely. The food was excellent. Probably the best hotel I have ever stayed in. Gabriele and Adam are the perfect hosts and we considered them friends by the end of our stay. Thank you especially to you Nick as it took us along time to put it altogether and you patiently kept sending us different options! Hope to do buisness again sometime.Andrew Morton
Just to say that our trip was amazing - even better than Natalia had described. Lake Manze was definitely the right choice of camp with elephants meandering through. The whole set-up was wonderful! And then Pongwe, and then Stonetown. Nobody wanted to come home. We will definitely go back to that part of the world and will be recommending you if any of our friends intend to visit! Once again, many thanks for organising such a wonderful trip!Malgosia Rozwadoska
Nick got to the crux of what we were looking for quickly and made some excellent suggestions based on proper first-hand experience. He fitted the best possible trip into our budget, negotiating rates on our behalf and producing an itinerary that fitted the time we had and the things we wanted to do perfectly. Starting with an idyllic remote safari in Tanzania's Selous game reserve and finishing off with a week in a totally unspoiled corner of Zanzibar, everything ran smoothly and all his tips were spot on... If you're looking for some reassuring expert advice, look no further!Simon Routs
The trip of a lifetime.Helen Hulme-Smith
An awesome time. Thank you.Andrew Scott
