What Was The Highlight Or Most Memorable Moment Of Your Tour
There were many memorable moments on the tour. The large animals, the fish and 150+ species of birds we saw were the main focus but the countryside and the lovely local people were fantastic.

How Was Your Explore Tour Leader
Henry and his colleague Enok made the trip for us. They worked tirelessly to smooth over the minor problems that cropped up, drove carefully and safely for hours at an end and spotted and identified the wide range of wild life that we encountered. In short, they were great.
What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour
This is not a tour for the faint hearted. Although not very strenuous it does involve some long drives on poor and mud roads - the clue is in the title - Remote Ruaha and Selous. It did mean that we has an insight into Tanzania that could not have been obtained by flying into the game parks on light aircraft.
We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday, although it was a bit tiring at times driving 1500 miles, a lot of it on dirt roads to get to the remote game parks etc. My cousin Ray, a keen birdwatcher (not a twitcher) saw over 200 species of birds on the trip, helped by our tour leader Jez Bennett. The wildlife was good, although I was disappointed not to see a leopard, but that’s the way it goes. I did see one on my first ever trip to Africa in 2009, beginners luck. I thought the Ruaha National Park was the best of the three reserves and we would have liked to spend more time there and then fly to Rufiji River Camp in Selous Game Reserve, perhaps missing out Mikumi?
The visit to the Orphans in the Wild village at Mufindi was excellent. We met Geoff and Vicky Fox who gave myself, Ray and Jez an extended tour of their estate, explaining the work they are doing with their son Chris to help provide work for the locals. The two dams they created for the rainbow trout farm looked very impressive and this looks to be a very promising project for the future.
Jez was a very good tour leader with an excellent knowledge of wildlife. All in all a good trip with a good mix of people.
