'Really appreciated having an excellent, single guide with us throughout. We had not experienced this before and thought it worked very well.
Overall holiday satisfaction: Excellent.
Gardens of Abyaminch Lodge were excellent. Choices for evening meals seemed better when more guests were staying.
Simien Lodge is a great hotel in a fantastic location - would have stayed an extra night.
Mayleko Lodge (Gondar): excellent room - the best all holiday.
Sabean Hotel: excellent comfort, good in all other respects. Better than we had been led to expect!
Bishangari Lodge: excellent in all respects. Very well run hotel in fantastic location. Food was particularly good.
Bale Mountains Lodge: comfort excellent. Overvall this lodge was a disappointing experience as our expectations had been raised quite high for it. Service: the local people on the staff were very helpful. Schemes in place for the local community seemed well thought out and are an excellent initiative.
The holiday was really good and as you will know a fantastic combination of history, culture and wildlife that would be tricky to reproduce in such a short period in most other countries'
