A wonderful family experience throughout. lake Manze was superb with an authentic feeling camp ( no electricity - fantastic), enthusiastic staff and deeply knowledgeable and passionate guides. Eating all together under starlight with fires burning to keep animals away was thrilling and how they manage to produce such delicious food is a miracle. we saw many game species and especially loved the wild dogs and giraffes crossing the lake on our boat safari. Butiama Beach on Mafia was tranquil and relaxing. We had the beach almost to ourselves! Once again the staff we delightful and the atmosphere was perfect. Whale shark snorkling was a huge thrill. The accommodation was lovely and just what we had hoped for.

A fantastic family holiday destination, everything was very clean and hygienic, people very friendly, lots of great things to see and do. Excellent for teens- keeps them busy with zip wires, whitewater rafting, and waterfalls.

It was a wonderful holiday for me, especially as I was taking two grandchildren along so they could experience and learn about the wonders of Tanzania too. Although I have been on safari in Kenya, staying for a little longer this time made it more relaxing. We saw a huge range of animals, big and small and it was an unforgettable experience especially the issue of survival, the daily quest for food and animal behaviour My father and the mum of one of my grandsons had lived in Tanzania so the visit was of a personal nature too.

An absolutely fantastic holiday, perfectly tailored for us and our 17 and 20-year old sons. The perfect balance of activity and 'down time' in a stunning country. All the private and shared transfers worked like clockwork, the hotels and lodges were ideal and we came away with memories - and photographs! - to last a lifetime.

Car hire very smooth, roads of a good quality and navigation easy with satellite navigation provided. The driving in KZN was easier than I had anticipated. • The Cavern exceeded expectations. Lesotho is like going back to the 19th century in many ways! Certainly wouldn't drive over the Sani Pass without a guide. Fantastic potential for hiking but sourcing guides for this was a challenge. However, our guide for the hike up Thabana Ntlenyana was clearly knowledgeable, he would be a good contact to retain for future visits. • Greg, our guide in Lesotho, was good and worked hard to ensure we got some hikes in and got to see lots of Gil and Tom...without him we would have really struggled. He was also good company and certainly comes with our recommendations.

The people were lovely; ziplining for the first time, when in ones' late 60s! the wildlife; the beauty and tranquility of the North Pacific coastline.

From Tribes

Tribes was started in 1998  by a husband and wife team after they'd both spent years as travel guides and travel journalist. 

Twenty years on, Tribes is still a proudly independent and family-run specialist travel company. The highly professional team delight in sharing the knowledge they've built up of the places they offer.

The company works on a simple ethos …

They want you to have the very best holiday experience possible, and they try to ensure that travel is sustainable.

The company has a consistently very high feedback rating from clients, and many travellers come back to them again and again.

Since Tribes organises mainly tailor-made  (custom-made) holidays and safaris, there is no standardisation to the style or type of trips they plan.
The consultants listen to what you want, and they expertly plan what is absolutely right for you, and as close as possible to the budget you have. If you ask for something that isn't possible - they will tell you.  If they feel that the trip you're asking for could be improved - they will advise you. If they think there is a property or experience you might love - they will suggest it to you.

Planning a very special holiday starts with an honest conversation. Tribes will listen and talk and plan with you until it's exactly what you want.
