Bucket List Item Ticked

From Ian & Judy Jary – November 2016

Good evening Michael & Natalie,

We returned yesterday from our two weeks in Tanzania/Zanzibar. I cannot stress strongly enough how good the holiday was, it was truly amazing.

The Safari part of the holiday far exceeded our expectations, the two camps were nice and quiet with only 20-24 guests at the most, just what we wanted. The staff were excellent, very attentive and could not do enough to please us.

We saw plenty of, and a wide variety of game both land based, and water based, and fortunate enough to see two leopards in the Ruaha National Park.


The lion cubs in Selous Game Reserve were a treat. Mother was nearby keeping an eye on things.


Special mention should go to Lake Manze Tented Camp, it was unbelievable, brilliant location, the 2 managers were excellent, our guide and driver were brilliant. There were many seasoned safari guests that we met who all said that the camp was the best they had visited. It has everything, driving, boating and walking Safaris. And a great birthday cake!



Breezes Beach club was a lovely oasis in Zanzibar, we both had a lovely relaxing time. The evening meals had a theme every evening and it was excellent. Drinks were a bit pricey! We did enjoy the Spice Farm tour.

The Mizingani Hotel was lovely, great character and good location, breakfast was nice. We were in the Freddie Mercury room, it was a bit noisy in the morning when the staff were setting up for breakfast. But the character of the Hotel and service made up for this Your agent, GTI and Alawi were fantastic, arranged everything we asked and he was very knowledgeable. To summarise, a fabulous holiday and a bucket list item ticked off. Please do not hesitate to pass on my e-mail address to any potential clients.
