An excellent value for money safari

Written on: December 07, 2015   |   I visited in August 2013 We had a five day/four night safari in Selous Game Reserve for four people, staying at Hippo Camp. Although my Husband and I had been on safari before and knew what to expect, my parents (who had never traveled to Africa before) were apprehensive. We selected Mercury Tours on the basis of the best price being offered and equally importantly for the responsiveness of Alex at Mercury Tours to the frequent questions and specific requests that we made. Mercury Tours were very helpful and willing to make changes to suit our tastes.

The safari itself was well organised and problem free. We had a full itinerary (three full days in the park, a boat safari and a walking safari), which meant that we were able to see a wide variety of animal and bird life during the time in the park. Hippo Camp was conveniently located near the park entrance and offered spectacular sunsets over the Selous river each evening. Accommodation was perfectly acceptable for our budget range, and the food and service were very good. The only downside was the fact that power was turned off at 10 pm, making for a hot and sweaty night without fans.

All in all, a very memorable holiday.
