I stayed at Tent-with-a view for 4 nights as part of the VJV 'Secret Tanzania' package. I loved everything about the place and the staff were just wonderful. Natalia is an excellent manager, and all the other staff have been friendly and helpful . I want to mention the Masai warriors especially, as they were always there to escort us, without us having to ask or look for them. On the morning of our departure, they treated us to a performance of some of their dances, which were great fun to watch. The accommodation was very comfortable and clean, as was the restaurant and bar. The food was excellent: 5 interesting courses every night, served up in the restaurant or at the beach. The game drives were fascinating, even if it sometimes took an hour or so before we spotted any animals. Watching groups of elephants and lions close by were the highlights for me. Our guides were knowledgeable, patient and had excellent eyesight! The remote setting, the tranquil atmosphere, the sound of the waves from the sea at night and of the wind rustling the leaves of the trees that surrounded the bandas, plus all the positive aspects already mentioned above, made me feel like I was in another world. I would love to go back!
