Located on the border of Nevada and California, South Lake Tahoe is the adventure hub for the Lake Tahoe area. The 50 room Basecamp Hotel is a true gem amongst the chain and franchise hotels in that it offers something unique and modern at a great price point and it's a truly independent offering. The hotel has been developed with adventure in mind; it's somewhere to sleep while you explore the area, rather than a resort. The rooms are modern, bright and spacious and most offer a private balcony. There are some thoughtful family rooms, as well as smaller options for couples.
Communal areas are lovely and are a blend of independent hostel meets hip coffee house. Breakfasts are included (a rarity for the USA) and consist of freshly baked pastries, granola and good coffee. In the evenings, a campfire is lit on the terrace and you can toast s'mores under the stars. Upstairs on the roof terrace is a hot tub.
The hotel is a short walk to the beach and is in easy access of all of the beaches and areas around Lake Tahoe. A perfect offering for those who prefer an independent and unique place to stay without all the frills, think rustic cool.
Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
Kind regards, Carol

It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
Kind regards, John

Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
