A Nomad Safari - the highlights

Sand Rivers Lodge was one of those once in a life time places!!!  It was so beautifully located...and we loved rising to the sound of the hippos!!!    

We adored the tented camp in the Serengeti!  It was such a treat to return to a hot "bucket shower", and then sip our sundowner on our little porch, sit around the fire and later enjoy the evening meal and the company of other guests.

We appreciated all of the staff at Nomad Tanzania.  We loved their warm greetings when we arrived and then that they were all in a line to shake our hands when we left.  It was a most gracious and warm way to begin and end.  They did their work well and clearly had thought of everything to make one's stay in a bush camp be comfortable and memorable.  We will recommend them highly!

We appreciated each one of our guides!  All of them were knowledgeable about the area and the animals/birds. Peter was so warm, always called us by name, was eager to please and clearly delighted that we were so excited about the things we were seeing.  Halifa was informed about the history and politics of Tanzania and engaged our questions most thoughtfully.  We were with Festo the longest.  He asked us immediately what we were interested in, and then consistently sought to enable us to really observe and understand more about animal behaviour.  He, himself was interested in photography and was always working to get us the best shots or to put the jeep in the best light.  

He explained that Nomad Tanzania gave their guides specific training in photography, and that certainly is an advantage.   When we expressed interest in having a day game drive in Loliondo, Festo also took initiative to make it happen.  

We thought it was terrific that they acted as our hosts, and we appreciated their serving lunch and then chatting with us as we shared our meals.  All three were good company!
