Just before we opened the camps this week we were thrilled to receive notification from TripAdvisor that all three properties within our portfolio had been awarded Certificates of Excellence - what a way to start a season!  Thank you so much to all our treasured guests who have taken the time to review and post over the last year and sharing their comments, thoughts and suggestions with us all - we become a global family especially with so many of you taking part in our active social media - posting photos, statuses, likes and comments - we absolutely love hearing your stories!  Just because you got on a plane home does not mean you ever have to leave us!

In fact for our two oldest camps, Siwandu and Ras Kutani, they have been awarded a Certificate of Excellence every year since the awards were founded in 2010 so this is our 6th year in a row!  And for Jongomero, our camp baby, this will be her 3rd consecutive year.  We are delighted to add these titles to another TripAdvisor award of - Travellers Choice Award for Ras Kutani - voted by our guests as the Top 10 Small Hotels in the whole of Tanzania!  

Thank you again to all our guests but also to our staff who are consistently mentioned as some for the best in the industry and I am honoured to work with them!  Karibu our camps this season!

Laura Thubron, Manager of Fanjove Private Island, gives a taste of what makes Fanjove so special.
