Our private Nomad guide was outstanding

“Our private Nomad guide in Tarangire was outstanding and by far the best guide of the trip.  His name was Halifa and he deserves world-wide fame for his knowledge, company, personality and service levels.  Thank you for insisting that we have good guides.  He made the trip for us.

We also loved the Serengeti.  You were right - the huge plains were just stunning and everything I wanted.  I was so pleased to go there because there were far fewer people around, it was remote and just beautiful.  However they seem to pursue an enthusiastic policy of controlled burning there which impacted heavily on the beauty of the surroundings - large areas of black, charred landscapes instead of the lovely Serengeti grasses.  But outweighing all that we were lucky enough to see the migration - the chance of a lifetime and of course the Lamai accommodation, lodge and food itself was just superb.  We felt blessed to have had the opportunity to go there.

If we went to Lamai again, we'd probably want our own guide.  Sharing the guide at Lamai was fine, but much more structured - we had less flexibility than we wanted over our time there because of having to fit in with other couples....The food was great there and the service was excellent.”
