"Am sure you cant get joiners in Mahale and Katavi, this places are unique may be Ruaha, what i saw is people whom they came together from the original"

Thanks for this realistic observation. That's a problem when you are one person who is not comfortable doing a solo self drive.

When I search for low cost group trips to this region I always come up empty handed.

How nice your trip worked out so well!

My own personal experience based on a Sept 2011 trip: Flycatchers was terrific.

Flycatchers - have good prices, but here were talking basic"


I'm not sure what more I would have wanted at Flycatchers--The tents were spacious, 9 x 12 sturdy tents with attached ensuite western loo and shower that had warm flowing water upon request. Warm water was delivered in a pitcher each morning. Warm water all the time in Mahale. Comfortable bed, not a cot. Great food. Friendly and attentive staff. My guides--the most important part of the trip--were wonderful. Location was wonderful.

Nothing was lacking in my opinion.

Oh yeah, one more thing...I doubt any other camp can match the Q-tip supply of Flycatchers. There were 50-100 of 'em in a nice little dispenser at all the camps. My ear canals never were so clean!

In all seriousness, I loved Flycatchers.
