Dear James

We are back, unfortunately, and would like to thank you for your suggestions for what has been a wonderful trip.

Ras Kutani is a beautiful place, despite lack of diving, the ocean is a bit rough. The beach, the accommodation, the food and the people working there are absolutely amazing. We loved it.

Jongomero is a great place, very remote, very good taste (without pretending to be on conde nast!) and Stewart and Karen are great hosts.
They are doing a very good job there. The food is great and the way the place is organised is excellent. Game view is great as well. we manage to see some rare animals (sable antelope, honey badgers, black mamba…)

Selous Safari is great game viewing (we saw lions killing an impala on our first day!) and it is great to do walks, boat trips and fly camps (we did for one night). The ambience and the food are not as good as Jongomero but overall it is a great safari camp.

In the end we enjoyed Stone Town and it was good to stay at Emerson & Green. It has to be said that after ten days in the bush, a town is a bit of a shock. But worth it.

Thank you again and if you pass by Ras Kutani or Jongomero gives our regards to the people there. We enjoyed their company very much.

Kind regards

Dear Marc / James  – all at Tanzania Odyssey,

Thank you so much for booking / organising our truly wonderful honeymoon – the memories of which will last with us forever!!!!

Every aspect of our honeymoon – the flights, connections, transfers, accomodation, food and drink, the staff and general hospitality has been amazing. This was our first trip to Africa and it certainly hope that it won’t be the last!!!
At the Selous – as our plane landed in the game reserve the Land Rover was hurtling along beside us with two beaming faces smiling at us to welcome us in, from there on in we were treated like kings, everybody and everything was fantastic, so helpful, so cheerful and so wanting us to have an amazing time. Our guide for the five days ‘Apollo’ was brilliant he took us over terrain that we never dreamt we would cross – came much much closer to animals than we ever thought we would and his knowledge of the animals and birds was fantastic!!
We have many many unforgettable moments – to name a few, we saw Lions mating, Mrs Warthog and her four tiny babies, 3 baby hippos which were approx 5 metres from our tent at 2am in the morning.

Breezes – was the perfect relax after our safari – again everything was lovely we were thoroughly relaxed after being there for about 2 hours!! We felt completely like we were at home and the whole experience far exceeded our expectations.

So I just wanted to express my thanks – and will hopefully be speaking to you again the future to organise another amazing trip for us. Do you produce a brochure? I have noticed that you are updating your website – do you ever send email updates or newsletters out – if so please include me!!

Many Thanks

Hi Marc,
Just a quick note to thank you very much indeed for organising a wonderful honeymoon. It has come as a considerable shock to the system to drop back down to reality.
All the resorts and hotels were some of the best and most original we have ever stayed in with exceptional friendliness, service and food throughout. It became a monotonous wrench to leave each in turn. We are looking forward to writing a glowing feature.
Hope everything is good with you and I’m sure Lucy will be in contact soon.
The advert looks very nice.
Thanks again,
