I think I can safely say this was the best holiday of my life. Every detail was taken care of, you just had to sit back and enjoy your trip. Every person we met was so friendly and kind, every location was fantastic, and we were very lucky with the weather and the animal sightings.
Tanzania really is a beautiful country. When most people think of safari's they think Kenya or South Africa but really what you are picturing is Tanzania and it really has it all.
We received a wonderfully warm welcome straight from the airport. The room was magnificent with a fire place and bath, plus views of Mount Meru from our patio. We arrived too early for dinner but the staff were kind enough to whip up some snacks for us while we waited.
A lovely place with a really interesting wine cellar. We enjoyed our evenings on the bar terrace before dinner, and as ever the staff were amazing and friendly.
What a breathtaking place! By far my favourite from the trip, the entire property is beautiful and it feels like you are living in a big tree house. Our butler, Philemon, was an absolute super star and we are so grateful for how well he took care of us during our stay. The room was a dream with a stunning view over the small river where you could hear the waterfall, and we even had an outdoor shower!
This was really a magical experience to be able to sleep in the Serengeti and listen to and experience the animals. Despite being in the middle of the wild, all our needs were cared for and again the staff were flawless. It was so surreal to be sitting having breakfast while watching the giraffe's and zebra's do the same only a few metres away.
Claire was fantastic. We are so grateful that she allowed us to add in our little extras to really make it the trip of our dreams, although it would have been in any case! Every detail was taken care of, we didn't have to worry about a thing and I'm sure that is all down to Claire's amazing work.
