Listed below are just some of the comments we have received from our customers visiting Kenya in the past year.

Hi Michele, the trip was simply amazing! Lewa & walking was extremely special and we were very sad to leave such a amazing reserve and people. We would definitely recommend the walking wild as it added a very different feel and view that you cannot replicate on a game drive. Many thanks for everything you did in organising the trip.

Hi Rob, we are back safely from a brilliant trip to Kenya - lots of great wildlife, interesting culture and complex conservation issues. The balance of the trip really suited us and visiting the different camps/lodges gave us a more complete appreciation of wildlife and conservation in the country. Thanks again for putting together a great trip for us.
Jonathan and Hilary from Buckinghamshire travelled to Kenya

September/October 2017

Dear Michele, I wanted to put in writing what an excellent job you and your team have achieved - once again. We had the most amazing time on our safari to Kenya. Every aspect of the trip went like clockwork and we have nothing but praise. This is now our third safari arranged through Safari Consultants and you are always professional, knowledgeable and offer the highest level of service. We know that we are not the easiest of people to please but you always excel. It is reassuring to know that you listen to our ‘wants, needs and preferences’ and match them accordingly. We are extremely grateful for your assistance and advice. We will definitely be going on another safari and will, of course, travel with Safari Consultants.
Steve and Johanna from Suffolk travelled to Kenya

October 2017

Hi Michele, We would just like to let you know that we have returned from a really fantastic holiday. It was a truly wonderful experience, the Safari was amazing made by the quality of the camps, the friendly staff, fantastic food and of course the animals were truly magical. The Breezes hotel was excellent and a lovely contrast to the Safari. Safari Consultants certainly know their job and we're spoken highly of by camp managers and other guests we met. Everything seemed to go like clockwork with the itinerary for us. The only down side, on our way home, the last flight from Amsterdam to Manchester was cancelled so rather than depart at 10.10 am we didn't get away until 2pm, but as they say " Hakuna Matata". So, thank you for organising a holiday of a lifetime for us and of course we now can't wait until we do another! So watch this space!
Chris and Carol from Caton travelled to Kenya

September 2017

Hi Michele, just to say we had an outstanding time once again. Bush camp was as amazing as last time and it was lovely to spend time with Nick and Liz. Amazing 4 days spent with an enchanting 4 month old leopard cub who played to her audience - sometimes just us, and the camp next door now has horses so we got to gallop amongst the wildebeest. Thanks again for great organisation.
Mark and Andrea from Ancaster travelled to Kenya

September 2017

Hi Rob, great trip! Really enjoyed everything. Rwanda and Bisate were amazing. Fantastic start to the holiday. We even saw the silverback mating which was awesome. We totally loved Lewa Wilderness & Ngare Serian and were really sad to say goodbye to Kenya! As far as game the last camp was the best and we really enjoyed Adrian and his team and loved falling asleep to the rushing water. Thanks again for organizing!
Kimberly, Alun, Madison and Phoebe from Bermuda travelled to Kenya and Rwanda

August/September 2017

Hi Bill, we just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and all your team for a totally amazing holiday, all five of us loved every minute of it. Both Kicheche camps were brilliant, we saw hundreds, probably a few thousand animals and birds, have got over 1,500 brilliant photos and we loved the Ocean Spa, a very special and peaceful place. All the travel arrangements were perfect too. Thanks so much for everything.
The Money family from Surrey travelled to Kenya

August 2017

Hi there Michele, I just wanted to say a huge thank you for helping us organise the trip. It was the most amazing holiday - it felt like I had been away for ages. Everyone we met was superb - I hadn’t quite understood the size of the team that would be supporting us up the mountain (we both made it!!) - what a fabulous set of guys. We were well fed - I couldn’t quite believe 3 course breakfasts, lunches and dinners on the side of a mountain - staggering! And Stevie and Goodluck certainly earned their money on summit night. The staff at Kicheche were great. The scariest bit of every day was the walk back to our tent after dinner - we had lions, buffalo, hippo, zebra and wildebeest in the camp - so that was interesting - we didn’t hang around!  The quality of the accommodation and food was excellent. We were lucky to see a cheetah kill - and had some very close up experiences with lions and elephants. It was definitely the right thing to go to a private conservancy - which was evident to us when we went into the national park for the day and saw the amount of cars following the animals around. And Kinondo - what can I say - totally chilled out bliss!! Issie has complained about having to wear shoes again now she’s home - she looked like a little hobo for the week! Food, service, accommodation, cleanliness, facilities - all fabulous. Thank you so much.

August 2017

Hi Michele, Sorry we are a bit slow in getting back to you since getting home from Africa! Thank you so much for your help in organising our trip we had an absolutely fantastic time! We loved everywhere that you organised for us and were treated so well by all the staff at all the different camps. Everything we saw we thought was amazing! A few of our highlights were seeing a herd of 100 elephant up close, watching two cheetahs hunt a poor little baby Thompson gazelle, spotting the elusive leopards, seeing two brand new baby lion cubs to the Mara pride on a night drive, the smallest river crossing of 4 wildebeest and staying at Elsa's which was by far our favourite lodge! Thank you again with all of your help organising the most amazing honeymoon that we could have hoped for!

Julia from Safari Consultants was fantastic throughout the booking process. She was approachable, professional, knowledgeable and very aware of our needs to keep within budget but have an unforgettable holiday at the same time. We loved our holiday from start to finish and would happily recommended the services of Safari Consultants.
Steven, Fataneh and Oliver from London travelled to Kenya

July 2017

Hi Julia, we just wanted to say a massive thank you for organising such an amazing trip. We saw so much and had a fantastic experience. The camps were fantastic choices and really complemented each other. The food was so good I put on 3kg during our stay. Once again, thanks, it was without doubt the best holiday either of us have ever been on.
Gary and Marianne from Staffordshire travelled to Kenya

June/July 2017

Rob, just a brief note to say thanks again for arranging our trip to Kenya. We had a great time, and definitely pleased we went with Sarara (a magical three nights). Got some super photos too - so many wildlife photo opportunities (particularly in the Mara) and lots of black and white rhino in Ol Pejeta. Steve Carey was an interesting character - we got on with him famously. Anyway, thanks again for making it all possible.
Peter and Anne from Peterborough travelled to Kenya

July 2017

Dear Rob, we have had a lovely trip to Kenya. Sarara was very nice indeed, particularly as a cultural and landscape experience. I would like to thank you and your colleagues for arranging a lovely holiday.
Emile and Louise from Germany travelled to Kenya

March 2017

Hello Rob, we had a successful adventure of a lifetime. Every day brought us a new sense of amazement. Thanks to your attention to detail, everything continued to go smoothly for the entire trip. We enjoyed the differences in landscape and wildlife at each new location. We were still seeing new things on our very last day. Before we left for the Nairobi airport we added the tree hyrax to our list of sighted species and we adopted an orphaned elephant named Mbegu. We were never disappointed. All the lodges, hosts, guides, staff, accommodations and meals exceeded our expectations. Your recommendations were perfect for us. The charter flights between locations gave us new perspectives on the landscapes. It is impossible to choose one favourite moment of the trip. Highlights included the entire Greystoke Mahale experience, the emotions we felt as we watched the Silverback with his family at Virunga, Lewa House with our hosts Sophie and Callum (and my new favourite animal, the baby white rhino), camping under the full moon and stars at the water hole in Laikipia with the leopard visiting at night, tenting with the hippos serenading us at Ngare each morning and a visit from a genet while we spent a night in the treehouse at Ngare. We can't thank you enough for having made an itinerary that has given us so many cherished memories.
Chris and Susan from Canada travelled to Kenya, Rwanda and Tanzania

February/March 2017

Hi Michele, I have been meaning to write to you since we got home, to THANK YOU for an absolutely wonderful experience. It was quite a complicated itinerary, but the connections and contacts with guides and local representatives was seamless. The tented camps were fantastic, particularly the Kicheche camps due to their location. We were blown away by the level of service, attention to detail and the high quality of the meals provided by the lovely staff at all camps. Islands of Siankaba was also a fantastic change of pace and end to our trip. Our guides were wonderful -  Jackson in Tanzania, Bernard in Rwanda, Peter at Ol Pejeta and George at Mara North. Their easy going personalities and knowledge of their country’s geography, history and wildlife made the trip so much more rewarding than we expected. The access they provided to the wildlife was amazing. Thanks again to you, Josie, Bill, Rob and the team. We had a wonderful trip and would highly recommend Safari Consultants!

Dear Michele - Amazing trip. Superbly organised. Every detail taken care of. Thanks.
Nick, Liz, Sam and Ruth from Lincolnshire travelled to Kenya

February 2017

Dear Frances, thank you SO much for your amazing recommendations and help in planning my trip to Kenya. I had an AMAZING experience! From the SafariLink flights to being picked up by David, my guide, to the Kicheche Mara camp itself (Andrea and Manuela, and really the whole staff, were wonderful). It was everything I could have ever hoped for and more than I imagined it could be. I just can't thank you enough.
Madeline from the USA travelled to Kenya

January 2017

Dear Rob, we had a truly wonderful holiday in Kenya! Thank you for arranging the perfect safari for us - as you did 3 years ago in Zambia. We have nothing but praise for all four camps which were complete contrasts and provided such different experiences. Elsa's Kopje was the perfect place to unwind at the start of our holiday. Though the game was harder to find than our Zambia experience, we saw more elephants here than anywhere else in Kenya. On to Sarara where Rob and Meg were running the camp extremely well and our delightful guide, Mark, was excellent and we learned much about the Samburu culture. We much enjoyed our room overlooking the waterhole, with the local Kudu drinking our morning coffee milk, the informal atmosphere and communal dining arrangements, particularly the moonlight dinner on the dry river bed!  Our visit to the Singing Wells was an extraordinary and memorable experience - a "must" for anyone visiting Sarara. Callum and Sophie were lovely hosts at Lewa House where we stayed in one of the old thatched cottages. Very good sightings of black and white rhino and cheetah and a rare glimpse of wild dogs. Serian was the ideal final stop. Not only was the camp very pleasant and comfortable, it was the quantity of game and our guide that made our stay so special and we were grateful to go there at the end of our visit. With many thanks for brilliant organisation and our kind regards.
Graham and Joanna from Surrey travelled to Kenya

January 2017

Dear Frances, the welcome and service in both camps were exemplary. The people in Nairobi were very efficient and the Boma was good fun for late night drinks on arrival and dinner before departure. Nairobi Airport was a revelation, loads of security and a bit chaotic but no more than was to be expected. Guides in both camps were wonderful. Tim at Naboisho and James at Serian were professional, interesting and could not have been more informative and well briefed. Thanks to Frances for putting together another great Safari Consultants holiday.
Andrew and Eve from London travelled to Kenya

January 2017

Dear Julia, we had an amazing time. Thanks for the smooth organising and for recommending such great places. We would go back to both of them! Both places were fabulous, but we thought the managers of Kicheche are really special people, and they really made our time there spectacular. Our guide there was amazing as well.
Michelle and family from London travelled to Kenya

October 2016

Hi Michele, Just a quick email to let you know that we all had a fantastic time in the Masai Mara recently. The photo opportunities far exceeded our expectations with images of cubs of all varieties (Lion 3 weeks and 3 months, Cheetah 3 months and 15 months and Leopard 6 weeks) captured. As planned we made the most of our time and were on the road by no later than 6am every day and all I need to do now is to wade through the 14,000 images that I alone have taken. One thing we did notice was this time was how much drier it was with our cameras and lenses covered in dust on a daily basis, something we did not have an issue with last time. As usual the hospitality shown in both camps was of the highest standard and we treated to some Masai dancing and signing in celebration of Cathy’s birthday. Once again we were all amazed at the ability of our guides Patrick and Jimmy to either spot or predict activity whilst at the same time respecting the animals. Thanks to all at Safari Consultants for all your help in making this another unforgettable holiday.
Brian and Cathy from Leicester travelled to the Masai Mara

September 2016

Frances, sorry it's taken me over a week since we returned from Kenya to let you know what a brilliant time we had. It really was the best holiday either of us have been on. We have been raving about it to everyone, and we've really caught the 'safari bug'. We'd love to go again, to somewhere else in Kenya or elsewhere. Thank you for all your help, right down to sending us all the documents in that nice travel purse. It was really useful.
Nicola and Aaron from London travelled to Kenya

October 2016

Hi Frances – wow what a holiday! Keith and I will live off the memories for many years to come. We both wanted to write to you to give you a personal thank you for all your due diligence and attention to detail. At all times you were professional, friendly and listened and guided us in the best way to achieve our holiday dreams. Every single detail we had ever mentioned seemed to have been catered for at all of our accommodations and even when you were out of the office we never felt out on a limb the service provided by not only yourself but Safari Consultants has been exemplary. Keith and I would like to personally thank you for making our holiday the dream that it was. It was a pleasure working with you to build our holiday of a lifetime. Thank you so much.
Keith and Joanne from Kent travelled to Rwanda, Kenya and the Seychelles

September 2016

Hello Bill, as first time safari goers the holiday ran like clockwork. Transfers were punctual and friendly, all travel arrangements were well communicated and the choice of camps and order of camps suited us very well. The information provided before we left was invaluable including camera types and clothing. We had nothing to compare this to but are fairly sure it would be hard to beat.
Trevor and Mary from Hertfordshire travelled to Kenya

September 2016

Hello Rob, I wanted to thank you so much for all of the hard work you put into making our safari special. It was truly the best experience of our lives! Overall the safari was absolutely amazing - we talk about it all the time and wish we could go back now! We actually got engaged and were considering going to elope at Angama Mara. Thank you!!
Courtney and Christopher from America travelled to Tanzania and Kenya

August/September 2016

Hi Frances, I wanted to thank you for everything you arranged for us, it went perfectly; everything dovetailed beautifully and you had thought out our needs exactly. The safari experience was breathtaking - we had no idea we would get so close to the animals, and from the first moment it was one thrill after another. Both camps were lovely in their different ways and the order we visited them was just right, as we moved smoothly from the bliss of the Fairview shower and bed to what felt like the height of luxury at Offbeat but then to the even smarter Naboisho. Everyone was very friendly and helpful and our bush walk and camp (which turned out to be the night of the full moon!) very exciting. (We nearly walked into a rather bold lioness). So, it could not have been a more wonderful experience and we will certainly recommend you very highly when we get the chance.
Angela from Devon travelled to Kenya

August 2016

Dear Rob, the trip was amazing, very well organized, beautiful lodges and we experienced such beautiful nature and wildlife, really amazing!! Thanks for everything.
Dirk-Jan and Jacqueline from the Netherlands travelled to Kenya

August/September 2016

Dear Frances, just to say the safaris were excellent. Your service was brilliant. Ange and I had a fabulous time. I'll be filling in the questionnaire but just wanted you to know everything went well and all the pickups and hotels worked very well too. We were thrilled with both the Offbeat and the Naboisho experiences. It was a good mix and the flycamp was a marvellous icing on the cake and several of the other guests at Naboisho were envious of our experience though the walking safari was a good part of it too. We did see such diversity the abundance and close encounters were truly fabulous. Thanks for all your expertise in sorting places which were exactly right for what we were seeking. Much appreciated.
June from Devon travelled to Kenya

August 2016

Another very successful holiday, our 7th organised by Safari Consultants. As always, they delivered everything we required in terms of itinerary, accommodation and transfers, and once again we benefited from their detailed first-hand knowledge of every property we used. Their meticulous attention to extra details makes life easier for someone of 76 with mobility problems, from ordering a wheelchair at airports to requesting a room nearest the main living area was much appreciated. Safari Consultants' service is not just excellent, it is outstanding and has been so without exception ever since we first travelled with them. We would never consider using any other company to organise a holiday for us in southern or eastern Africa.
John and Jennifer from Berkshire travelled to Kenya and Seychelles

July/August 2016

Hello Mary, thanks again for your help in organising what was an absolutely tremendous holiday. My boys loved it right from the start of walking across the car park at Kenyatta Airport to find we were straight into a safari 4x4, and I’ve never heard my wife use the word “awesome” as much as the last fortnight. We saw some phenomenal habitats and wildlife, stayed in some fabulous accommodation, met some lovely people, and the welcome and hospitality extended to us was almost uniformly warm and generous throughout.
Graeme, Fiona, Duncan and Iain from East Dunbartonshire travelled to Kenya and Tanzania

July/August 2016

Hello Mary, we had an absolutely fantastic time. We loved the Mara Camp - the managers and staff were so friendly and helpful. Alex keeps telling everyone about the charcoal oven and how fantastic the food was. Our guide Jimmy was lovely and a very good photographer, we miss him lots. I was delighted that every single arrangement you made for us to be met and transported from one place to another went according to plan. Thank you so much.
Linda and Alexander from London travelled to Kenya and Tanzania

July 2016

Second time with Safari Consultants to Kenya, and as on the previous trip we found them to be deeply knowledgeable, very responsive, and arrangements in Kenya to work very smoothly. The two destinations visited in Kenya this trip - Laikipia Wilderness and in particular a six day walk with camels organised by Karisia - were quite exceptional. Really expert guiding, thrilling yet still confidence-inspiring encounters on foot with elephant and buffalo, lion around all night, considerable comfort and dedicated and friendly staff. Go there: you will remember it forever, and will also be supporting exemplary conservation in Laikipia.
M&L from Oxfordshire travelled to Kenya

July 2016

Dear Mary, it has been my intention since returning from Kicheche earlier this month to drop a line to say a number of "thank you's" but as ever my response is tardy! So belatedly, thank you for the......fabulously friendly & efficient service, useful wallets & lovely post cards, annual subscription to "Travel Africa", which is already giving me withdrawal symptoms, and all the various handy hints. Such unexpected or anticipated added value leaves all other travel consultants trailing behind in your wake. Luckily everything went like clockwork, but if it hadn't, the impression I am left with is I would have been fully supported. We were lucky enough to meet one of your lovely colleagues at Mara camp (Julia), again she gave such a positive impression of Safari Consultants. The safari was fabulous, Kicheche camps are so special and it was lovely to meet Manu & Andrea, the new managers at Mara camp - what a lovely, genuine, passionate couple they are. We had lovely sightings including a cheetah up a tree (that was a first for me). I will definitely be in touch next time I'm booking a holiday & would have no hesitation in recommending Safari Consultants.
Suzanne from Oxfordshire travelled to Kenya

June/July 2016

Hi Frances, the trip was simply beyond our already very high expectations….I now value the time you took to guide us to the 3 camps…they were each totally different from one another and each were an experience on its own! Tortilis was perfect, and there were lots of animals! Plus we mostly had very clear sky and beautiful sunsets with Kilimanjaro. Our guide was very experienced and we often got very close to various animals such as elephants and lions. We actually saw a Black Mamba which apparently they rarely see! The camp with the water hole in front always busy with animals was great. In Lewa, we enjoyed how different the camp was. A giraffe was often seen on site, the girls enjoyed horseback riding and we did a bush breakfast. The camp in the Masai Mara was totally different. The river with the hippos a few feet away and the noise of the water was a totally different environment! The Kenyan people were amazing! Thanks again!!
Linda, Luc, Tania and Bianca from Canada travelled to Kenya

May/June 2016

Hi Frances, it was a fantastic week; both accommodations were faultless and the game viewing was truly breath taking. The exclusivity of the experience both through the way we were spoilt in the resorts (e.g. dinner under the stars, vehicle & guide specifically for us) and during the game drives (rarely saw other vehicles) made it truly memorable. I would highly recommend each of the locations; Lewa Wilderness provided us a truly tranquil setting with amazing service to fully relax, while Kicheche Mara was a perfect location to immerse yourselves within the fantastic Mara. Thanks again.
David and Se Wah from Dubai travelled to Kenya

March 2016

Dear Michele, did the holiday live up to our expectations? And then some - it was more than fantastic. It really is the best holiday we have ever had. We enjoyed all the camps and Sonia & Andy made my birthday extra special with the teams traditional songs and a cake. We also watched a lion eat her zebra kill with sundowners on my actual birthday!! I think we have been very lucky first timers - walking safari in Laikipia and "came across" a rhino; we watched cheetah and Cubs eat their kill; saw Nabiki the cheetah and managed to see Fig the Leopard and cub on 3 occasions! Other highlights included lions mating, the marsh pride lions for hours with breakfast.... And then, on our final game drive, when I'd asked to see elephants, giraffe and anything else again - we saw a cheetah kill!!!! By the time we arrived at Diani, I was glad I'd asked for a beach bit, as was Steve! Kinondo Kwetu was amazing and we did manage to do the sacred forest, where it promptly poured down while we were in there. Auspicious according to our guide. And we were glad we went on to the village to see how people do manage to live and survived the coconut wine! Thank you so much Michele for putting together a holiday that is so memorable and enjoyable. And for all the extra touches for my birthday. We will be in touch for the next trip....
Cath and Steve from Shrewsbury travelled to Kenya

March 2016

Our very first trip to Africa and we’re certain it will not be our last! Novice to safari experiences – we were pleased to find it ‘ticked every box’ surpassing all our expectations. The huge skyline, the quietness, being so close to wildlife – what a huge privilege it all was. The whole holiday moved smoothly and efficiently from camp to camp. Each camp had something different to offer with the varied landscapes and a superb variety of game. The rhino rich undulating plains of Ol Pejeta to the woodland, ravines and swamps of Lewa – where we saw our first Grevy’s zebra; to the huge open plains of the Masai Mara with oceans of waving savannah grass and enormous sky levels, so rich with game – it gave us our first sighting of leopard. Clive and I would like to thank you all at Safari Consultants for organising this amazing trip of a lifetime for us and ensuring that our experiences were diverse, rich and most wonderful in every aspect.
Clive and Anne from Suffolk travelled to Kenya and Seychelles

January 2016

Hi Michele, just a quick email to thank you for all the help with our trip, we had a truly amazing time and everything ran like clockwork. The Boma Hotel was perfect for us; they let us check straight into the room on arrival and we even enjoyed breakfast on the terrace before hitting the sack, then a great afternoon by the pool before a lovely evening meal and a peaceful early night to prepare us for the excitement ahead. Offbeat Meru was a perfect re-introduction to Africa, and the Offbeat camp managers Craig and Ashley were amazing. The Rhino Sanctuary gave us our first ever viewing of rhinos, the whole area was lovely and quiet and as you know the camp is a tiny corner of heaven- perfect recommendation! The Offbeat corner of Mara was teaming with every size of wildlife and very few other vehicles ever ventured down into " our" area of the conservancy. Basically the Offbeat way is exactly how we like to do Africa and I cannot think of anything negative to report. I will of course complete the questionnaire but just wanted to thank you personally for all your help. Speaking to the guides and managers they seem to agree Zimbabwe should be next on our list!
Philip and Natalie from Lancashire travelled to Kenya

February/March 2016

Hi Michele, we thoroughly enjoyed the holiday and thought the Kicheche Camps were excellent. Your itinerary suited our requirements very well.
Christopher and Susan from Wiltshire travelled to Kenya

February 2016

Hi Frances, we had an amazing trip and a beautiful wedding day! Saruni Samburu was absolutely perfect. The views were stunning, the food was great and the staff were amazing. Everything at Mara Plains was spectacular. The only thing I wish we could have changed was the weather we had at Mara Plains (it rained all 4 days), but it only added to the adventure, floods and all. It was the trip of a lifetime and we will never forget it.  Thanks again for everything!
Rachel and Peter from California got married in Kenya

December 2015

Dear Michele, I think this last holiday was probably our best ever so despite being boring, we will most likely do the same itinerary next year!
Bob and Joan from Nottingham travelled to Kenya

January 2016

Frances was AMAZING and so incredibly helpful for this whole process. We had never been to Africa and had nowhere to start and she really took the time to understand what we were after and was so kind handholding us through the process. We loved Sosian so much that we are seriously considering getting married there. From arrival, to the guides, to absolutely everyone - everything was taken care of and everyone was so nice and friendly. We honestly couldn't fault Sosian in any place. Thank you Frances for recommending this place - we truly loved it. Kicheche: we saw loads of game and we really liked our guide - his name was Francis and he was lovely and managed to find all the animals when no one else did. We also thought the food was good. We did absolutely love Africa and think we will make this an annual trip.
Jackie and Chris from London travelled to Kenya

Just settling back after an excellent trip, all locations, food, game viewing and the holiday resort were of the highest standard.
Terry and Alison from Surrey travelled to Kenya and Seychelles

November 2015

Hi Michele, a long, long overdue note of thanks (my apologies). What an amazing trip. What a wonderful country. What gracious and accommodating hosts. But most importantly, because of you, what a spectacular travel itinerary. You can't imagine how many people we met who were both envious and amazed by the opportunities and activities afforded to us. The destinations, the lodgings, the animals, the people...I really can't say enough. Perfect in so many, many ways. Michele, my entire family and I want to thank you for all you did to make our adventure more than we ever imagined. Truly. We appreciate your attention to detail, your energy and enthusiasm, and your patience with us before, during and (now) after the trip. You and your team were superb. Again, my apologies for my tardy reply. And thank you, thank you, thank you!
Carol, John, Samuel & Zachary from Arlington, USA travelled to Kenya

July 2015

The trip surpassed all my expectations and has provided me with some magical memories. The camps were exceptional and I can honestly say I have never been so well cared for. Special recommendations must go to Sonia and her team at Laikipia. Both guides: Onesmus and Mika, both of whom were extraordinary and without exception, all the staff at Siankaba. A huge thank you to all of them. This was a truly wonderful, one might almost say life changing trip and one that I shall never forget. Overall, I must send a personal note of thanks to Michele who orchestrated the whole affair with care and efficiency. I shall rave about Safari Consultants to my friends until I am in danger of boring them silly! With grateful thanks.
Mary from Hampshire travelled with friends to Kenya and Zambia

October 2015

We had a fantastic trip, thank you! All down to your expertise and efforts. I had high expectations going in after previous experiences many years ago, but both portions of the trip - especially the Mara - more than lived up to these. Offbeat was exactly what I was after when speaking to Michele, so thanks for choosing so well for us. We just wanted to say that, at the outset of this trip, we contacted numerous travel agents and safari specialists, but none really came close to the insight and service we got from your guys. We got a lot of commoditised, pre-built itineraries, honeymoon plans we didn't ask for, and, in some cases, refusal to work with the budget we had (!).  So just wanted to let you know this, and will be recommending you in future.
Paul and Laura from London travelled to Kenya

October/November 2015

Hi Rob, your itinerary and all arrangements worked superbly. Everything went according to plan. Selous Impala camp was a great finale as the rivers made such a change to the bush game drives. All of the camps were excellent in their different ways. Meals were imaginative, varied and tasty. All of the staff we met were very keen on what they were doing and wanted to ensure that we enjoyed our stay with them. All of our guides seemed to have real passion for the bush. All in all, another excellent trip organised by you and your team, Rob. You have done us proud and clearly have chosen good operators on the ground. Please pass on our thanks to all your team.
Roger and Judith from Essex travelled to Kenya and Tanzania

October 2015

Good Evening Michele, we would like to thank you for organising such a superb holiday which we are still in complete awe of. So many lasting memories have been created and we have never felt so at peace & relaxed on a holiday before. The whole itinerary ran faultlessly for which we thank you! The camps were superb with excellent guiding, fantastic food & a very high level of service & accommodation. For us you certainly achieved the 'holiday away from humans' and we can't really believe we were there now that we are back to our pressured lives. Our sincerest thanks go out to you Michele along with all of the camp staff who made every moment spectacular. We are of course thinking of what comes next year.....Thank you once again Michele for your hard work & making this a holiday of a lifetime for us!
