At the beginning of our wonderful safari adventure with George Mavroudis Safaris, we recently stayed at Shangazi house for a few days after a series of long flights from the USA and we were delighted with all aspects of the beauty, comfort and service. The grounds are pristine and lush and hide the few tucked in luxury cottages that have all the important comforts and amenities. Mario the friendly pet warthog is a must see while wandering the spacious areas between the cottages and the common area. The food was diverse and delicious at all meals and the service from Festo, Maria and the crew made us feel like part of the Shangazi house family. We highly recommend Shangazi house to fellow travelers as a perfect way to begin or end a Tanzania safari adventure or to just chill while exploring this great area in Africa.
