Overall Impressions

Everything was taken care of Exceeded my expectations

Countries Visited

South Africa

The place we stay was amazing. But downtown was a bit depressed economically.


The guide (Lucky) was excellent and the service was also superb


Of all the places we stayed Mpala Jena was the overall best. Exceeded our expectations many times over. The park itself was dry because of the season so the game viewing wasn't that good. The helicopter company dropped the ball. Two of the individuals from our party were not able to go


Nothing good to say Immigration was terrible. The people at the airport in general were not friendly at all.


At the northern Serengeti camp, our guide Mathew was overall best guide very informative made up for the short falls at the lodge. Best game viewing. There no woman staff at the lodge so the laundry was a problem for our wives. The shower situation was what we expected. Would definitely stay at another camp when we return. At the crater the lodge and overall experience was excellent. The crater was way over crowded with different tour vehicles and the animals are very distant from the vehicles.


Overall a good expierence The lodge by the gorge was amazing the service was impecable; wish we would have stayed longer. The lake Edward tour was very good The gorilla trekking was worth the effort. Our driver didn't meet our expectation.

Accommodation Visited

21 Nettleton

Excellent everything

Little Vumbura Camp

Overall good The showers are completely exposed no real privacy. But other than that all good

Mpala Jena

The best overall lodge would go back to Zimbabwe just to stay at the lodge. Excellent

Four Points by Sheraton Nairobi Airport

Wouldn't go back

Legendary Serengeti Camp

I would go back to northern Serengeti and stay at another lodge as long as Mathew the guide was with us. The guide made up for the short falls of the lodge.

The Retreat At Ngorongoro


Hotel No.5

Good overall

Kyaninga Lodge

Not a place for older people given the height and amount of stairs to get around. But the staff and location are wonderful.

Kyambura Gorge Lodge

Amazing, would like to have stayed there longer. Peace the person who was assigned to taking care of us was awesome. Would go back to the lodge again thanks to the staff and overall cleanliness of the beautiful lodge.

Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp

The tents were a little dated. Again the staff was very good.

Saxon Hotel, Villas and Spa

Wish we would have stayed longer. Definetly going back
