The vehicle for the safari was very comfortable. Loved that our whole group could ride in one vehicle and it was open on all sides. Recommend them for...

Some of the most amazing and genuine people work at this quaint Safari Camp. They will be great friends of yours and have some of the best food that I have ever tasted. The lodging was definitely comfortable with lots of hot water and air. The view from the lodge is absolutely breathtaking, a great view of the Nile River....

Just a very few kilometres from the Merchison Falls National Park this lodge is worth a visit. We spent a night there after our game drive. We stayed in a Safari tent which was very comfortable with electricity and lots of hot water. The camp is on a hill so there were plenty of cooling breezes and it is very...

A family run business in a great location (just a few km out of the park gate) on the side where the game is. It is not unusual to see elephants and antelopes already on before the entrance. Food was great (mainly italian cuisine with a daily fixed Menu) and staffs cordial. Drinks cold and showers had warm water. Rooms...

As I retired each night at Bweno Tembo Lodge, this was my thought - can we stay just one more night! The food is the best by far in any place I have been in Africa. When I asked Davide, about his research before building Bweno with his brother he said they found that people want three things - a...

Davide and his staff are lovely and helpful. The tent that I stayed in was was clean and comfortable. The best part of the day however, was the food and in particular the evening dinners. Homemade Italian pasta and steaks were divine..... I found myself intentionally fasting during the day to save room for their wonderful food - the memories...

We intended to stay for 1 night in Bwana Tembo and ended up staying for 3! It was very difficult to leave the warm hospitality of Davide, Arianna and the very attentive staff of Bwana Tembo.
