What our guests say about us.

Visiting the communities a highlight for the Campbells

I wanted to send you a note to thank you for all of your help in coordinating our excursion to Katumbi.  We had such an amazing visit.  From spending time with Elizabeth at the clinic and learning about all of her work  (just amazing) to playing an epic soccer (football) game with the children of the village.  It seemed as if the entire village came to watch.  It was truly an incredible experience and a highlight for all of us. 

Mahale was fantastic as well.  We were so fortunate to spend time with the chimps all 3 days and, because the chimps were nearby, have plenty of time to visit Katumbi, go fishing and swimming and even relax.  It couldn't have been more perfect.  Mahale has to be one of the most beautiful places we have ever visited.

Our time at Chada Katavi was wonderful.  Again, such a unique setting.  We felt so far away yet so well cared for.  Mohamed and his staff are so warm and welcoming and incredibly professional.  They made us all feel so special.  They did a great job interacting with my 3 children and keeping a relaxed and playful attitude with them.  It was great.  I would (and have) recommend both camps to all of my friends and family.  

All of our interaction with Nomad personnel was extremely positive.  Exceptional guides at Mahale (Mwiga), and Katavi (Emanuel),  Top notch Camp Managers, Mohamed, Jeff and Kerrie, were all warm, interesting, entertaining, and extremely hardworking.  From the drivers to the waiters, including your efforts before our trip, you all did a beautiful job in contributing to our spectacular adventure. 

We were so impressed with Nomad.  We really can't wait to return to Tanzania.

Cheek-to-cheek with the lions :-)

Well, unfortunately our days in Tanzania are over grin

We have had an amazing trip. Everything was perfect. The people of Nomad Tanzania were fantastic. They took care of every little thing and they have been very lovely. Both camps were perfect and really, really, really close to the wildlife. We slept cheek-to-cheek with the lions grin

The team of Seregenti Camp was very nice and our guide Ian showed us all the animals very close. It was fantastic. The experience in a nomad camp like that was amazing. We were in the middle of the migration and got to see the wildebeests crossing the river. It was honestly breathtaking!

Kuro Camp was also extraordinary. I want to point out that the manager and his team here are exceptional. They explained us all about the animals and life in Tanzania. Always with a smile and in a great mood which made us feel extremely at home and special to be part of such an experience. Our guide Paul Panga was extraordinary. We spent 5 days with him and he was like part of the family. He was a very lovely person, always taking care of us, and we shared many lovely conversations and adventures with him.

Outstanding!  We are sorry to leave!

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!

Ettelson family, USA

The entire staff was friendly and so accommodating.

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 people are the biggest treasure.

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 rhythm of life at Kuro…

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!

Binghams, UK

Fantastic, friendly and superlative service

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... *****

All we hoped for and more

Hi Julia,

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.

A real bush camp and fantastic people

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 wink, 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 smile)

I enoyed every second…

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.
