Hi Marc:
It has been a while already that we are back from our trip. So I am a little slow, but I wanted to let you know we had a great trip. The country and wildlife are outstanding and we saw everything we expected and more. The drivers were excellent. Joshua was our Tanzanian driver and he was very informative, a good driver, very accommodating. We had a great time. We would have no hesitation recommending this (and you) to our friends. Thanks for all the help in making this a great trip.

Dear James,
Just a quick note to say we had a marvellous honeymoon and thankyou for your help in organising everything. There were no hitches to speak of and both Ras Nungwi and the Selous were great. If you do speak to Natasha at the Sand Rivers Lodge please pass on our thanks.
Kind regards,

No problem James – as I said, we still enjoyed ourselves at Ras Nungwi but felt that had we not have been so spoilt by the previous places we would have been even more satisfied. A hotel will always be a hotel after all and you cannot get the same level of service, privacy and exclusivity as you can at a resort consisting of individual bungalows.

We have been advised that the Mahale Mountains National Park is an amazing place and we are especially interested in chimpanzees etc. Do you organise trips here too? What would be ideal is to either combine with a couple of days at the Norongoro Crater to see the scenery more that anything, or with a trip into Ruanda to see the silverbacks. I would be very interested to hear your thoughts – this would be something that we would like to do perhaps next year when we have finished paying off our wedding and honeymoon debts………should have married in a registry office and had the honeymoon in Blackpool instead…….apparantly the wildlife is very interesting there!!

Again, thank you for all your effort and we will definately recommend you to our friends.

All the best,

Hello Marc,

Just to let you know that we’re back safely and that we had a fantastic holiday. The itinerary worked very well and the accommodation was excellent.

Africais an extraordinary place and some of the many wonderful memories will, I’m sure, stay with us for ever…

Both Roy safaris (we all thought our driver/guide was excellent) and Coastal looked after us well…

Thanks for sorting it all out for us (Jess got to SA without any problems, in fact she was able to get earlier flights which was helpful…)

Best wishes,

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
