What our guests say about us.
Outstanding! We are sorry to leave! We loved the camp particularly all the animals we watched from the lodge. The food was excellent. The beds were warm and comfy. The staff did a wonderful job. Keep up the good work!
Our personal highlights: Wonderful guide, Ken, who was instrumental in our being able to observe so many animals, his interesting stories and explanation. Loved seeing the baby giraffe with its umbilical cord still attached. Lion and leopard sightings were great. A great chef team that made our meals enjoyable. The wonderful housekeeping staff that made our stay so comfortable. The hot water bottle in our beds was an unexpected luxury. The entire staff was friendly and so accommodating.
The setting is magical and food fantastic, but the people are the biggest treasure. The staff and our guides (Rem & Calvin) went out of their way to make sure our experience was over the top. All our questions were answered and we learned so much!
The highlights of our stay at Kuro were: the rhythm of life - early mornings, relaxing afternoons. Focus on the animals and nature. Decoration: simplicity and luxury (but not over the top). Food - nice and light, didn't feel we were being stuffed the whole time as with some places. Game crossing in front of the main camp!
Rem and Kelvin have been AMAZING! The attention to detail at the camp is fantastic, friendly and superlative service, clean and exceedingly comfortable rooms. Five stars in every way! Luxury camping... *****
Thank you for organising our African adventure. It was all that we hoped and more. We loved seeing all the animals up so close and had so many wonderful experiences. We could nearly touch so many different animals and had a lot of fun along the way. There were no hiccups in your organisationat all. I thought the Ngorongoro Crater Lodge was wonderful and would put it up there with my top 10 places to stay in the world......It was utterly unique,extremely comfortable and the staff went out of their way to make our stay a fabulous experience. See attached photo of rose petals beside our bath mat! Zebras in our front garden and an amazing view. What more could you ask for.
Rem, our [Nomad] guide was very good and very knowledgeable. The flights were all fine, I got used to those smaller planes and although relieved that we didnt have the 4 seat experience, I would feel much better about it now.In fact, the 12 seaters were easy! And so much better than driving those huge distances. The Serengeti was fabulous and the Nomad [Serengeti Safari] Camp was just what we hoped for. Our guide there,Gabriel, was really fun and we all got on well. He knew everything we asked and tried very hard to find all the animals for us. We missed out on a leopard but saw so many lions,we were blase about them by the end. My personal preference was for the giraffes and elephants and we saw plenty of those.The staff at the camp were terrific, especially Babu. I have really thick hair and managed to wash it with only two buckets!
Thank you once again Julia. I stumbled upon you quite by accident through Nomad but we were very lucky, you made the whole procedure very easy with your knowledge and professionalism.
I just wanted to thank you again for my fabulous time both at chada and kigelia!!!
I had some concern at the beginning knowing that i was going on " national park" but at the end it was a great surprise to found a real bush camp and fantastic people working there. Moody and Mussa were just perfect!!
That was my ninth trip in africa so of course you always want more , so luckily i had my moment of an incredible buffalo take down by a pride of 16 lions caught on video and camera!! Hussein and i were very lucky that day )
Lamai Serengeti: Spectacular setting and accommodations. Managers Nick and Jana were awesome. At first I thought 4 nights seemed like it would be long but I enjoyed every second of our time and was bummed when we had to leave. Leopard was the only animal we had not seen and I spotted one (pardon the pun) in the last 30 minutes of our last (9th) drive. We saw a river crossing and tons of animals. We also saw dead animals in every stage – from fresh kill to vultures gobbling remnants to intact skeletons to scattered bones. The balloon ride was a cool experience.
What can we say about Sands Rivers, other than that it was perfect in every way! A breathtaking location overlooking the river, with hippos and crocs in the waters below. A beautiful lodge, tastefully decorated, with individual, luxurious open fronted safari cabins all with stunning river views. It was a joy waking up to that view every morning!
We also thoroughly enjoyed the range of activities available at Sand Rivers, with walking safaris, river safaris, fishing trips and more available alongside the classic game drive. There was less game here in comparison to the other camp we stayed in in Ruaha), but that didn't matter to us at all, and we still saw lots of animals and birdlife. Our guide here was excellent - his eagle-eyes and knowledge of the birdlife in the area was astonishing...
The food and service at Sands River was excellent - first class every step of the way. The managers, Kate and Cameron, were also incredibly welcoming, professional and friendly, going out of their way to ensure guests enjoyed their stay.
We cant recommend this place highly enough - stay here and you won't be disappointed.
I just wanted to send a quick e-mail to say thanks again for our stay at Sand Rivers and Kigelia. We had the most amazing time at both places and I don't have anything negative to say about anything. Both parks and camps delivered beyond expectations in every way and the wildlife sightings were just amazing - only cheetah evaded us but that just means that I have to go back there some time in the future.
Honestly, the food was exceptional (and I mean really really good), the guides superb, camp staff fantastic and overall experience just amazing and also really nice to meet John at Sand Rivers.
