We are delighted to announce Siwandu as the 2014 Winner of Tanzania's Leading Safari Lodge!  

The prestigious World Travel Awards were established in 1993 to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across all sectors of the tourism industry.  Today, in its historic 21st year, the WTA brand is recognised globally as the ultimate hallmark of quality, with winners setting the benchmark to which all others aspire.  The annual programme is renowned as the most prestigious and comprehensive in the travel and tourism industry.  In 2013, over 500,000 individual votes were cast by travel professionals and high-end tourism consumers.

World Travel Awards President Graham Cooke said: “We saw an incredibly rich, diverse and inspirational selection of nominees in Africa & Indian Ocean in 2014, with many top competitors fighting it out in a series of very close races."  Within a group of highly regarded Tanzanian Safari Lodges including &Beyond Kleins Camp, Mnemba Island Ngorogoro Crater Lodge as well as Asilia's Sayari Camp and Amara Selous - Selous Safari Company are thrilled to have been voted the winner after being nominated for the past 3 years.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote for Siwandu, it means a great deal to be recognised in the "Oscars" of the travel world and we look forward to successive years of success!
