Overall Impressions

Probably closer to 4.5/5. Overall, we really enjoyed the trip. One of the better trips we've taken in the last 5+ years.

Countries Visited


While all of our stops in Tanzania were great, we enjoyed the Serengeti the most. The combination of the accommodation and the game drives were the best. All of the locations we visited in Tanzania were great but we would go back to the Serengeti first.


Rwanda was a pleasant surprise. Kigali was a great town. The Gorilla trekking was great and a highlight of the trip. Accommodation in Kigali was very good, the lodge near the park was good but (as warned by Jamie) not of the same standard. Would have liked to have had another day of activities here to justify the time and effort of getting there.

Accommodation Visited

The Manor at Ngorongoro

Room and grounds were great - this place had the best food and staff

Sanctuary Kichakani Serengeti Camp

Best location. We liked that it was a bit out of the way and of course, the hippos

Kigali Serena Hotel

Nice, clean. Only one night here

Gorilla Mountain View Lodge

Served its purpose - was not of the same quality as other hotels on this trip but was convenient to the gorillas

Zanzibar Serena Hotel

Nice, clean. Only one night here as well.

Ras Kutani

We enjoyed this hotel more than we initially thought we would. The beach was great and staff friendly. We would consider going back.

Staff Review

Really 4.5/5. Created a great trip with very little guidance/input during the high season. We would/will certainly reach out to Jamie again when planning another trip.
