Martina Zilch, Germany: Selous Private Camp, January 2017:
I have travelled for the second time with Authentic Tanzania, and again it was just a fantastic experience. This year I visited Selous Game Reserve only and stayed 7 nights at the Authentic Tanzania Maji Moto Camp. My personal driver/guide Robert has been very professional and he did not only show me the animals, but also explained interesting facts about them and their behaviours as well as the life in Tanzania. My camp crew John (chef) and Rajabu (camp boy) took wonderful care and I had nothing to complain about. I also want to thank the office, who has communicated with me in German what made things so much easier for me. Thank you and I hope to come back next year!

Thank you for an unforgettable vacation. We still talk and vividly remember our days in Ruaha National Park. It was great game drives, perfect drivers and guides, and very much fun. We very much enjoyed it. Thanks for your support and the amazing itinerary.

An excellent safari. The tent and camp was very good, of a high standard and cleaned for us each day. The food was great – good selection and very tasty! The vehicle was comfortable for travel and good at moving around the park, even over rough ground. The staff on safari were very friendly and services provided were very good. Authentic Tanzania staff have been very helpful throughout the booking – always very quick to respond to emails. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and hope to do another safari in the future!
MacPherson Family – December 2015
The camp was awesome and very clean. Beds were comfortable and the location was amazing being so near to the river and hearing the crocs and hippos in the water was unbelievable. The food was the best we had in all Tanzania. Our allergies and intolerances were extremely well catered for and I wish we could have a private chef every day. Our guide was kind hearted, friendly and knowledgeable. We couldn’t have wished for more. Our email exchanges with the office were quickly responded to and the itinerary was perfect. All our concerns were met with reassurances and guarantees. A fantastic experience, and Authentic Tanzania are a great company to go with!

We are back after an amazing month travelling around Africa. Thanks a lot for the safari in Selous, it was fantastic. We sighted wild dogs the first day, and this was really a gift for me. The camp was very nice, a real fly camp and we appreciated this so much. Our guide, as all the camp crew, very helpful and competent.
McKim Family – July 2015
We had a truly incredible time with you and would like to thank you so much for everything you did for us - including the champagne! The campsite location was wonderful. The beds were really comfortable, although Jules would have liked another pillow. We liked listening to all the animals at night and it was nice not having to go outside at night to go to the toilet! The shower was surprisingly good and it was lovely having hot water delivered in the mornings for washing. Every day we were amazed at how the camp cook managed to provide such wonderful food. We loved the delicious soup to start, and lots of fresh fruit. It felt very healthy. The sundowners on the sofa, by the fire in the evening was lovely. The bottle of champagne from the hippos was an unexpected delight! The vehicles felt very safe, especially compared to some of the open sided vehicles we saw. It was wonderful being able to sit on the roof and stand up. The camp team were lovely, friendly, polite, and discreet. It was lovely having cold flannels when we first arrived, and hot water in the mornings. It felt like Rajabu anticipated our every need and was also very funny and entertaining. It was the trip of a lifetime – fantastic! – So very different to going to busy places, such as Masai Mara. It was lovey to be part of a quiet, low impact safari. The variety of landscapes, including the hot springs, the giant baobab was amazing. Nice to go the site of an old camp on the last morning and see that there was no trace of it.

Thank you very much for all your help - our trip was really way beyond all our expectations. The drive was great, the camp was just right, nice and secluded and just for us...brilliant. Your staff were very friendly, never in your face yet no more than a call away. And you have a mighty fine cook!! Thanks for a memorable safari!!

Thank you so much for putting together our safari vacation. The lodge was a dream and both of us enjoyed it immensely. You couldn’t get a better anniversary trip. Thank you!
