The stay we had here was outstanding. It really confounds me to see that this camp is eleven out of eleven in thorneybush according to trip advisor. Because of the 'low' rating the camp did not even come up on our radar screen. Very unfortunate.
We initially opted for one of the top three camps in the area according to Trip Advisor. Just a disaster. It was a real dump. They hadn't made any capital improvements in at least 10 years.....Obviously someone was sandbagging our initial accomodation on trip advisor. To make a long story short, we met some new friends (professional safari goers, five or more a year) at the first camp and they highly recommended we switch toTangala. We cancelled our last two days at the initial camp and headed over to Tangala, and boy we were not disappointed!!!! The difference between the two camps was like night and day. Tangala was EVERYTHING we had hoped for in a safari. Great, comfortable, accomodations. Good showers. Great food. Great staff. And wonderful intrigueing travel companions at the lodge to pass the time with. Oh and did I mention that the game drives were fabulous. Florin was great. We saw the big five and had an outrageous stay. I highly recommend this place for value, warmth and friendliness.
