Lifetime Experience Safaris cannot guarantee that your stay at an accommodation facility will be 100% satisfactory. We can only go on the experience of our guests and their comments and personal visits. When we recommend a lodging facility it is because many of our customers have spoken or written favorably of this facility. We recommended that you do not have to base expectations on the experience of your country where "everything is available". Try being flexible and have a better understanding of your lodging choice, let the differences be part of your African Adventure. You will be enjoyably surprised by the quality of service you will receive.
This charming tented camp located conveniently close to the Bigodi Wetlands and only a short drive from the starting point for chimp tracking, it is probably your best option if you have to book several trackings and wish to go birding extensively in the nearby wetland without commuting every day from Fort Portal or the lodgings near the crater lake area.
