“Delightful Garden Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2009

I stumbled upon this little gem when investigating holidays in Tanzania on the internet. I booked my entire safari holiday with Octagon Safaris and the service they provided was first rate. I was on safari for a week and we spent four nights at The Octagon Safari Lodge. I would recommend this place strongly and we all agreed the overall experience was definitely excellent. The accommodation is landscaped around spectacular gardens and the place is very cozy and homely. The atmosphere is relaxed and unfussy. The overall setting is simple but comfortable and the staff are very switched on and eager to help. We did some very interesting and unusual things on our safari which was customized to suit our personal needs and tastes. Possibly one of the biggest and best surprises was the day of mountain biking with the owner all around rolling hills and farms nearby. If I went back I would set aside three days for this alone! Oh, and I nearly forgot to mention the best food we’ve had in Africa in all the times we’ve visited!
