It has taken me a while to write up the reviews from our Africa trip, but if there's one camp / lodge I remember, its Sasaab. Everything here was perfect - the accommodations (each cottage with a private plunge pool), the meals, the guides, the service, the sun-downers, the dik-diks welcoming us home every evening - it was all one would expect from a five star establishment, and then some.
And then there were our hosts, Doug and Tanya. I don't have words to describe their thoughtfulness, their generosity, their passion - I could go on and on. Within five minutes of our arrival at Sasaab, we felt that we had known them forever, like we were meeting old friends. Their zest for life is infectious, and we consider ourselves lucky to have had an opportunity to share their house, life and laughter for three days!
I am not going to repeat the reviews of the exquisite accommodations and services described on this site; others have done a better job at it than I can. All I will say is that we went to Sasaab based on the reviews, but will go back to meet Doug and Tanya. In fact, I will go to any property managed by them - they will make any destination worth the trip!
