What our guests say about us.
My mom especially, as she has idolized Jane Goodall her entire life. We loved it. We LOVE the new managers, and it is truly, truly paradise because of the chimps, the stunning setting, outstanding food and impeccable decor - and again, first and foremost, because of the people who work there. Greystoke is just spectacular, there is nowhere else on earth like it. It looked like we were living inside of a magazine spread, and felt like we were the luckiest people alive to be there. I think the fact that the managers have no background in hospitality, they just loved visiting Greystoke as guests themselves so much that they left their jobs and lives in Germany to come live there and manage it, speaks to how special a place it is. (And for having no experience in the hospitality industry, they were some of the greatest managers we've ever had the pleasure of staying with, Nomad is lucky to have them. They fit within the Nomad brand and raised the bar for Nomad properties! And Lamai is a tough act to follow! We just adored them.) We also felt like the luckiest guests in the world to have Mwiga as our guide, who had worked at Greystoke for over 2 decades (24 years I think?), and whose uncle had originally helped habituate the chimps. He was beyond knowledgeable, hilarious and kind. And told the greatest stories!
We stayed for 4 nights with Nomad's Serengeti Safari Camp in mid-Jan ( the quiet season). This was only one of our stops out of 5 countries but was the best and most memorable by far. The team and the philosophy of the camp manager meant that they always exceeded your expectation with the friendly, helpful and professional team. The accommodation was very luxurious from the big comfortable beds to the bucket showers (better than most hotels). We will be back.
This is the most magical place I’ve ever been - from the actual landscape to Mkombe’s House itself - far surpassed expectations. The home is STUNNING and the staff were incredible.
The food was BEYOND excellent. The presentation fantastic.. the team so cheerful, helpful, sweet, ready to help and engage with us. Every moment there we pinched ourselves because everything, every detail was beautiful.
I spent 3 nights at Lamai and I could not have asked for a more breathtaking view, wonderful and attentive staff, delicious food, and an outstanding guide. The rooms and the view were beyond imagination; the facility blended in with the Serengeti yet offered exceptional service one would expect in any major city five-star hotel. I saw the big 5, the migration, animals traversing across the Mara River, and more! As a sole female traveler Nomad Tanzania proved me a safe, comfortable, caring safari. When I return I know where I will be staying; I cannot imagine anything coming close to what I found at Lamai Serengeti.
Such a beautiful location overlooking the river, four days full of activities. Our thanks to our fabulous guide Hamadi, so willing to share his knowledge of the bush. Fly camping is an amazing experience as is the bush walk, local game drives and boat trips. The food is very good, featuring some local dishes and plenty of salads and pastries, all made on site. Bush breakfasts are a bonus to start the day.
The entire team are very friendly, helpful and professional. Michelle, the manager, adds a very homely family feel to the place and is always at the ready to make your stay even better.
I highly recommend it as a place to stay in Selous.
I would just like to firstly thank all of you for the experience at Greystoke Mahale, there is much hype about this little piece of paradise and I am happy to say that far and away overachieves on this hype. I would have to say that is is undoubtedly one of the most special places I have ever had the privilege to visit...The style, atmosphere, staff, food, guiding are phenomenal and credit needs to go to everyone involved. It was a real pleasure meeting Julian, Fabio and Barbara they all seem to one in million property managers, that are a rare find in the industry. Mwiga & Mattheus were exceptional and having a very keen eye for the complexities and subtleties of guiding I have to say that these two gentlemen are a phenomenal asset. Their passion, interpretation, kindness, and patience are some of the best I have seen in Africa.
Absolutely top quality hospitality in Tarangire. The staff were excellent. Knowledgeable and experienced guides; caring and capable camp manager with a wonderful team; excellent food. Stunning wildlife. Could not have asked for more.
Such a special camp - we loved the camp staff, food, service, guide and game! Ken is a wonderful host and it reflects throughout his camp. I'm so happy to finally experience the magic of Ruaha.
This camp treated us like royalty. Mosa and best camp manager Lawrence ensured we were exposed to incredible food, incredible game drives, incredible tents and comfortable beds. They thought and anticipated everything. I will hold Tanzania, its animals and its people in my heart forever. Asante sana Africa.
