Hi guys
We had a great time in Jan in Nogorgoro/Serengeti/Zanzibar. All went well guide Maji was particularly good, saw all game that we had hoped to see and more.
We will probably be back to talk Botswana in 2007/8
Lost your letter re other locations, do you cover any parts of South America, make a change this winter

Dear Julian,
Thought I’d drop you a line to let you know that we both came home last Sunday regarding this trip as being one of our most enjoyable experiences. The whole period went like clockwork and what we saw far exceeded our expectations. It really was a wonderful time. I probably mentioned to you when we first arranged the itinerary that I would dearly love to see all three of the big cats but at the same time appreciated that luck would play a big part. As it turned out our driver for the week worked wonders and we witnessed some of the best scenes possible. I could go on and on and on here enthusing over the trip but I’ll resist other than to thank all involved at Tanzania Odyssey very much for your part in arranging the visit – absolute magic. As I mentioned, our driver, Adam, was an absolute gentleman, very knowledgeable and I will also email ‘Roy Safaris’ to let them know how pleased we were with everything.
Best Wishes,

Hi Marc

Sorry not to reply to this earlier, we were already enroute. Just wanted to give you some feedback on the honeymoon.

It was absolutely fantastic, really really amazing. Both SSC locations were exceptional, such wonderful personal service, great food, great accommodation, great hosts. We loved every minute of SSC and Ras Kutani.

Ras Nungwi was good too, but not a patch on the other 2. I think going to Ras Nungwi 1st then the 2 SSC locations would have been best, save the best til last etc.

Thanks you so much for organising it all. We’re still adjusting to the real world- very slowly.

All the best

Dear All,

Just a quick note to thanks everyone at Tanzania Odyssey for a truly memorable holiday (honeymoon). We could not have asked for a better time.
All transfers were remarkably well organised and straight forward and the recommended places to stay were superb. I would recommend our itinerary to anyone. I think this was reflected in the fact that we did not want to leave each place we stayed at. Thought it may be useful to jot down a few remarks about the trip.

Ras Kutani was the perfect starting point and a really relaxing couple of days. Even invited to the staff quarters to watch the World Cup! The Selous camp was a superb start to the safari experience and being taken out for a boat trip on the afternoon of our arrival and cracking open a beer at sunset on the lake was fantastic, followed by a good couple of days mixing walking and driving. For us though, I think the absolute highlight of the two weeks was the Beho Beho camp. The incredible views, fantastic rooms,  service and quality of the guide (Spike in our case) coupled with the incredibly warm and friendly atmosphere that Rita and her team provided has left a lasting impression on us. Whilst only our first safari, so no real comparison, these guys seem to have got everything spot on and I genuinely think it would be a shame for anyone to visit the Selous without a stay here. We also experienced their bushnight, which again, we would highly recommend.

We finished the trip with six nights in Ras Nungwi and one in Stone Town, which was a nice way to chill out at the end of the trip. After the first three places we stayed, Ras Nungwi came as a bit of a culture shock as we’d got used to not being around too many people. If I were to make any comment, I would say that the rooms seemed a little tired, particularly the bathrooms, but please don’t take that as a criticism as we had a fantastic stay there and I think the comment is probably more indicative of the quality of accommodation we had become used to.

Thanks again for a fantastic holiday. From start to finish Tanzania Odyssey have been nothing but professional, honest, knowledgeable, helpful and informative. However, above all is the non-pushy approach of the staff, which makes a big difference when you are spending not an unsubstantial amount of money. I would have no hesitation in recommending you guys to anyone and would be more than happy to provide a reference for any prospective customers you have.

Best regards

Hi Julian,

Just a note to thank you for organising a good itinerary for us in Zanzibar and Tanzania.  Richard’s wedding went well and the safari was really good.  I would thoroughly recommend Roy Safaris and in particular the driver/guide, Habib.
