Traveller Reviews

  • I very much enjoyed the very informal nature of Lugenda and highly recommend it. Although my guide there was very good, the birding was somewhat limited. This was exacerbated on the afternoon of the second day when I was joined by a couple with only a minimal interest in birds. Regardless, it was the best overall stop on my trip.
