What our guests say about us.

Chada delight

We have been to Africa on safari six times and Chada is one of the best run camps we have ever stayed at.  Mohammed is the best camp manager we have ever met.

A perfectly orchestrated Serengeti safari

I just wanted to follow up with you on our perfectly orchestrated Serengeti safari with Festo...The "boys" treated us like Princesses, catering to our every whim. The chef's ability to temper my love of vegetables into delicious and healthy meals was beyond my expectations. The comfort of the tents and the lounge area left us well-rested and smiling all day long. The Serengeti was as vast and beautiful, and FULL of wild animals, as anyone would want to experience. I also have to add that Festo sang your praises on several occasions! Thank you...we felt very well taken care of by Isa and his boys.

Nomad people made my trip

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Nomad for the amazing educational trip you organised for me in Tanzania.

It was great meeting you all and learning about what Nomad has to offer and seeing all the beautiful lodges I visited. I would like to say that the service I experienced on the trip was amazing.  I feel, when I get started with Leora in bringing Africa to Australia, that I can confidently recommend you all.

Chedie gave us his heart and soul - Thank you Chedie!

Sam at Nduara not only saw to our every need but had the most wonderful stories to entertain us with.

Lawrence and Serena at Serengeti Safari Camp, treated us to an exciting stay with a special evening around the pit fire and a delicious dinner.

Liz it was great meeting you and your husband, thank you for the time spent with us.

I look forward to meeting you all again, one day soon. I look forward too, to sending you lots of clients.

Best wishes

We particularly enjoyed visiting the Maasai village

We enjoyed everything so much it is hard to pick a highlight but we particularly enjoyed visiting the Masai village, the goat slaughter and the Masai performance on our last night.  Our Guide, Geoffrey, was outstanding and he made our holiday very special.  We thank him for so generously sharing stories of his culture and found him very knowledgeable about the wildlife and Tanzania in general.

From the moment I landed in Kili, I fell in love with the sights, the sounds, the people…

To the incredible Nomad Tanzania team!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for arranging one of the best trips of my life!  Truly, it was a life changing experience for me in every sense – especially that it’s taken me so long to get to Tanzania, and also that I was given such a thorough and in-depth itinerary.

Quite frankly, I had no idea what to expect, but from the moment I landed in Kili, I fell in love with the sights, the sounds, the people, the generosity and the genuine love of Tanzania that everybody seems to share. 

Ladies, thank you for the great (but very busy itinerary), and for changing the first bit so slickly on my arrival – it was the only time I had five spare minutes, so it was welcome!

A very big thumbs-up to Emmanuel for his love, passion, knowledge and patience – he is a gem and a gentleman and a true credit to Nomad!

Caroline, you are one of the nicest woman I’ve ever met, and the few days we spent together were a treat!  You are so knowledgeable and engaging and enthusiastic and I felt then as I do now, that nothing was too much trouble for you!

All in all, my highlight was Lamai Serengeti.  Nick and Jana set the benchmark in terms of management, and their accommodation, food and hospitality (let’s not mention that view), were the very essence of what I imagined the Serengeti to be! 

I also adored Serengeti Safari Camp, and think that Serena has to be one of the most amazing, energetic, approachable, hospitable woman I’ve met; she made our stay such fun and so comfortable!  A big thanks to the SSC staff, especially Baboo who we all fell in-love with!

A thank you to Paul Panga for rescuing us in Ngorogoro and driving us to our inspections as well as delivering us safely at Kitela Lodge – he was fun and knowledgeable too!

I know I have so long to go in my learning, but this trip was a massive kick-start for me, and has sparked a love affair with a new country, which is so exciting!

If all your guides are as good as Rem, you have a lot to be proud of.

We have recently returned from an amazing trip to Africa...I really felt that I had to send a complimentary letter to express how pleased we were with our guide Rem.  He is a real gem and a super star as far as we are concerned.  He made our time at Ngorongoro, Manyara, and the Serengeti absolutely wonderful. He is an excellent driver, extremely knowledgable, and very patient with folks like us that need bird names repeated many times.  I like to think we developed an excellent rapport with him.  Because of that we felt very much at ease and very much at home.  He answered all of our questions and supplied more information about animals, the land, and the people than I thought anyone could remember.  His vehicle was well supplied and always kept clean despite many rainy situations.  I told him we knew it was his "baby" by the way he cared for it.  He truly was a big part of the reason why we were able to enjoy our time in Africa so much.  If all your guides are as good as Rem, you have a lot to be proud of.

Although we told him, please let him know how much we loved our time with him on our incredible journey.

I want to say how wonderful it was to meet you and the entire group at Greystoke.

Dear Serena

I want to say how wonderful it was to meet you and the entire group at Greystoke. Your energy and zest for fun were so catching - the time simply flew by....

Rem was terrific and we had a great morning with him on our trip to the crater....

Do keep in touch. We would so love to be back in Africa!   It was without a doubt the trip of a lifetime, but we now have caught the Africa bug and fully intend to return.

“May this be the end of nothing and the beginning of something”

We have just returned from our first safari reserved through National Geographic/Bushtrack Expeditions who arranged it through Nomad Tanzania. Incredibly wonderful describes our 8 day journey with Ian Kiwelu and Ole Masaa K John, native guides with a superb knowledge of the Tanzanian animals, plants, landscape and culture. They were extremely willing to answer any questions and volunteer a tremendous amount of information.  We were able to observe all the animals in the areas we traveled and learn about their individual behaviors. All the years of schooling and field experience that Ian and Masaa had to become the wonderful guides that they are was very apparent during our many drives. Their patience presented us with the best that Tanzania has to offer.

All the accommodations - Lamai Serengeti, Kusini Camp and Gibbs Farm - had the most welcoming and attentive staff, beautiful rooms, great locations and fantastic food! The hosts could not have been better - we dined nightly with Nic and Jana (Lamai), spent time at the campfire with Chris and Deborah (Kusini). 

We were very fortunate to observe two lions kill a widerbeest 20 feet from our vehicle. Masaa's keen observation and patience provided this rare opportunity. The  wilderbeest migration was everywhere in the south and we had our breakfast right smack in the middle of it all! Ian found us two lions mating. We were able to see the Big Five! The Masai Boma was a very interesting stop. We loved learning about the culture and were very lucky to have Masaa educate us in their ways. 

Our stay at Gibbs Farm allowed us a day to rest , enjoy a massage and learn about the farm. We visited the Crater and Lake Manyara from there as well.

Upon looking back over the entire trip, I must say that everyone we encountered was terrific. All the arrangements that were made on our behalf were executed professionally. The scenery and the wildlife more than met our expectations. No matter how much we see on TV, there is nothing like the real thing!  But I have to accentuate that the guides, Ian and Masaa, were the absolute finest. We spent a lot of time together and we were extremely fortunate and grateful to have such warm, caring, knowledgable, articulate, pleasant individuals who seem to really love what they do and do it well. 

Masaa left us with lovely words: May this be the end of nothing and the beginning of something.

Thank you soooo mcuh for everything!
