Hi Michele, I now have access to my emails and a mobile for the first time in over two weeks! Really we just wanted to say a great big thank you to you and your team. You put a fantastic itinerary together that really captured our requirements. All the accommodation was excellent and all the people we interacted with (with one slight exception) were lovely helpful people. Inevitably issues will arise on such a package but whatever arose your team responded very quickly and sorted things out - even over Christmas! We particularly appreciated your excellent response to the car hire issue. If we can provide any further reference or endorsement to support your business then just let us know. Once again many thanks for organising this trip of a lifetime.

December 2018 / January 2019

Hi Mary, just to tell you our trip was really wonderful. The dinner cruise was probably everyone's highlight, a stunning sunset, entertaining crew on the boat and plenty of wildlife to view. The hotel was fabulous, we all loved the understated atmosphere and were very appreciative of what it must take to run everything given the economic situation. The golfers had two great games and enjoyed chatting to the caddies and viewing more wildlife from the golf course. Back at the hotel, Suzanne and I had our own wildlife show from our sunbeds with families of warthogs, mongooses, baboons and monkeys providing the entertainment. Amazingly, we hardly had any rain, lots of sun and we all loved the falls even without the big curtain of water. So a great result, many thanks again Mary!

December 2018

Hi Mary, just arrived home a day ago from Vic Falls... and I just wanted to say 'thank you' for creating a wonderful trip to Botswana and Zimbabwe! I had a fantastic time, took plenty of great photos and met some really interesting people along the way. I can't recommend Pangolin Chobe Lodge enough!!! What a terrific experience working on advanced photographic skill development with the staff - especially Sabine. Great instructor/photo host! What a great suggestion Mary - I would definitely go back to Pangolin in a heartbeat! Thank you for talking me into staying at this location. It's fantastic! I really appreciated all the time and effort you placed into organizing and coordinating this trip - I truly enjoyed it! Many thanks and I'll be in touch to chat about the next destination soon!
Diane from Canada travelled to Botswana and Zimbabwe

November 2018

Dear Rob, thank you so much for arranging a very special birthday for me at Vundu. We had not mentioned anything so can only conclude that you must have alerted them to my elderly status and they went out of their way to make it a day to remember. It started by walking with the dog pack that is about to feature in “Dynasties” and then had a few close encounters of the elephant kind. One came right up to David in the van and nudged him with its tusks and after lunch we walked with Boswell as he stood on his hind legs to pull down branches on which to feed. Dinner concluded with 2 birthday cakes, one of the elephant dung variety which brought the house down and a delicious real chocolate one that was enjoyed by the whole camp. David will do his usual review over the next few days but I wanted to thank you now for making my birthday really special. We are busy downloading all the photos and can’t wait to look back on them as this was a great trip. You certainly know what we are going to enjoy.
Pamela from Surrey travelled to Zimbabwe

October/November 2018

Dear Rob, we had a good time in Zimbabwe. I think it's true to say that it exceeded our expectations given the problems the country has had and continues to have. With fuel shortages and empty shelves in the shops the camps still manage to provide all their clients need. Both of the camps were well-managed and very much orientated to provide their guests with the best experiences they could. The elephants in Hwange gave us the best sightings we have ever had: better than Chobe. Seeing literally hundreds of elephants come down to the water hole to drink as the sun set was a remarkable sight. We saw more kudu in Hwange than we have seen anywhere and we also saw sable which are such beautiful antelopes. No leopards in Hwange but we did see good cheetah and lion. It was a privilege to be guided by Nick in Mana Pools. We walked with the dogs which was amazing. We also saw the elephant which stands on its hind-legs to break branches (they call him Boswell after a circus ele which was taught to stand on its hind-legs) which is another amazing sight. We also saw more eland in Mana Pools than we have ever seen before. Pamela had a great 60th birthday including the presentation of an elephant dung cake. They went out of their way to make it a special day. I should also add one final point. We have travelled with you so many times we expect things to run smoothly and once again they did. We forget that in Africa things often go wrong and things don't happen as and when they should. Everything you organised was exactly as it should have been which we sort of take for granted when it's clear that often doesn't happen. Thanks again.

Mary, we had a fantastic time, all went smoothly and all the locations & accommodations were superb.
Paul and Jackie from Berkshire travelled to South Africa, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Malawi

October 2018

Hi Rob, it is good to hear from you. It helps to remind me of the great trip that we had. Each of the camps was terrific in its’ own right. My favorite as you could probably guess was Old Mondoro. Everything about it was phenomenal and was topped off with our seeing a Pangolin the last night that we were there. Bilimungwe was such fun and Alex felt more like a friend than a host. I probably would not return to Kafue. Though the camp was okay it wasn’t up to the same standard as the first two. However, I loved the hot air balloon ride so that made it all worthwhile. Overall, it was a terrific trip and your planning and logistical arrangements were seamless. I have already spoken to others about you and Safari Consultants and will continue to recommend you in the future. Thank you again for planning this wonderful adventure.

John and Valerie from Worcestershire travelled to Zimbabwe

September 2018

Dear Rob, just wanted to thank you for organising an amazing holiday; I had the most superb time with friends and family. All the accommodation was superb, all well run by happy efficient managers and staff, making you feel welcome and not a number. The meals were outstanding; how they can cook on a log fire like they do and produce what they do, amazes me! I could have stayed longer, especially Hwange Bush Camp, so much longer. Game drives brilliant. I just loved the bush and surrounding area, hardly ever seeing another car, except of course, for the Chobe day out, but if we hadn't had gone, we would have missed out on hundreds of elephants down on the river to browse, swim and play!! Thank you for everything you did to ensure we had a brilliant holiday

June 2018

Dear Michele, just to let you know that "you've done it again" and raised the bar; making it even more difficult to find somewhere next time that will come near to providing the same excellent standards and overall enjoyment. The VIP annex at the Victoria Falls was an unquestionable success. The Tongabezi Lodge was an absolute winner on all accounts: service, accommodation, location, food facilities etc. with the Dog House being a perfect choice of rooms. Their attention to detail in respect of every aspect was excellent. Many thanks

Christianne from Manchester travelled to Botswana and Zimbabwe

November 2017

Dear Frances, we would like to say a personal thank you for all your guidance.  As you know this was a trip of a lifetime, it took us out of our comfort zone, if not for your calm nature and helpful knowledge of all the countries we wanted to visit (Victoria Falls, safari in the Masai Mara in a tent and snorkelling in Zanzibar), your understanding and relaying our requests to all hotels and camps regarding Nicola's dietary needs took all the worry away, thank you. We would be happy to recommend Safari Consultants who organised our perfect holiday (3 Countries, 9 Flights, 8 transfers perfect) we couldn’t have been more happy. I feel going on safari should be introduced into the modern day 7 Wonders of the World. Everyone we came in contact with on our travels recommended by Safari Consultants were polite punctual and knowledgeable. Once again thank you for a perfect holiday, we have some lovely photos/videos and many treasured memories.
Tony and Nicole from Hampshire travelled to Zimbabwe, Kenya and Tanzania

November 2017

Hi Rob, we had a wonderful holiday, the wildlife in Zimbabwe certainly exceeded our expectations. The three camps each had a unique character. At Somalisa the waterhole was constantly being visited by Elephant. The camp was very relaxed and good fun, food excellent, tents of a high standard. Zambezi Expeditions camp was in a spectacular position on the banks of the Zambezi. We tracked lions on foot on a couple of occasions, bull elephant and wild dog. These were moments never to be forgotten. We canoed down the Zambezi at sunset as elephants and waterbuck came to drink and Carmine and white throated bee eaters returned to their bankside nesting holes. Kanga Camp was our final camp, set in front of the Kanga waterhole. I spent virtually all my time in the hide, Margaret went out on the game drives. The waterhole viewing was spectacular both during the day and night. Elephant, eland, buffalo, kudu, hyaena and leopard. All in all a really enjoyable wildlife experience. Many thanks for your efforts. We’ll be back.

September/October 2017

Dear Julia, we would just like to say we were especially impressed with our safari guide Frank who worked for Golden Africa Mobile Safari. He was the most knowledgeable guide we have ever known and had a genuine care for the environment. We were also pleased and impressed that all our travel arrangements and picks ups went so smoothly.

Thanks again Michele for organising such a wonderful and memorable trip for us. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Ian and Paddy from Buckinghamshire travelled to South Africa, Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe

July 2017

Hi Rob, thank you so much for organising a fabulous holiday for us. We loved every minute of it and it far exceeded all our expectations (which were already high!). There were so many highlights and we are currently ploughing through and editing approximately 3,000 photos so are reliving all the memories. The Victoria Falls were magnificent, in full spate and Ilala Lodge was lovely. We loved the Chobe river, and the birdlife was superb. We saw about 60 elephants drinking at Elephant Bay which was memorable. The 3 safari camps were awesome. In every case the standard of accommodation was amazing, the food delicious and nothing was too much trouble. Our favourite camp was Shinde - the atmosphere and friendliness almost moved us to tears. At each camp we saw lots and a great variety of animals and birds. A highlight was a pride of nine lions at Selinda which, after an abortive warthog hunt, decided to flop down in the shade of our vehicle. They were so close I could have reached out and touched them. You have now thoroughly converted us to safaris and we have Namibia on the high wishlist.
Pauline and Derrick from Surrey travelled to Zimbabwe, Namibia and Botswana

May/June 2017

Hi Frances, it was an amazing trip, a unique experience that I will remember for life. Thank you for the professionalism, effort and care you put on organising our safari. Looking forward to visiting Africa again.

March/April 2017

Hi Frances, we are now back (only in body, not in soul) and we'd like to thank you for the loving care and effort you put into organising our trip. We all had the time of our lives! The animals, the sunsets, the warm people who looked after us, the landscapes and the adventures that took all of us in one way or another our of our comfort zones, will stay with us forever.
Elina and friends from London travelled to Zimbabwe and Botswana

March/April 2017

Hi Michele, Overall a great experience and we loved it. Our highlights included 18 Roan come down to drink what a show it was. Although there were other trucks form the camp it never felt crowded and with all those eyes on the lookout there was plenty of information being passed to and fro to everyone's benefit. It was a very good choice on your part. Davisons was also fantastic. The best sightings we had were near the Makalolo water hole. 2-300 Buffalo drinking, other sightings were16 Giraffe and Lion Cubs with Mum. We also had a Cheetah sighting on two days which was unexpected and very special. Kanga was a very nice camp with great staff. The morning after we arrived, we just stayed in camp and watched the wildlife come to the pan to drink – it was great viewing! The highlight of Mana Pools was definitely the walking and being able to track wild dogs on foot and photograph them at close quarters! Thank you as always for all your hard work. It was much appreciated. We thought about you often wondering how you were whilst we enjoyed your homeland.
Gerry and Sarah from Buckinghamshire travelled to Zimbabwe

Dear Frances, what an incredible trip! Thank you so much with helping us put together this trip of a lifetime. We will definitely be keeping another safari trip in mind for a future trip! Thank you again!
Cindy and Spencer from Connecticut travelled to Zimbabwe, Botswana and South Africa

October 2016

Hi Michele, I wanted you to know that the trip was fabulous and has now replaced Peru as my favourite trip. You guys clearly know what you are doing. Several people even mentioned what a good variety of locations we were seeing. At Selinda, we loved the variety of topography. Saw so much, including two wild dog kills in one day. Lots of people never see one. Gruesome, but incredibly interesting. Loved the camp, the people, the food, the personal hospitality. At Shinde the landscape was wetter and interesting, the food was good and staff very nice. Camp Kalahari we saw some great birds and new animals especially at night and we enjoyed the meerkats. Drinks, dinner and sleeping on the pans was magical.
Linnea from California travelled to Zimbabwe and Botswana

September 2016

Hi Rob, Chobe Princess - Fantastic start. Total unwind from first few minutes on board. Mwamba - Excellent camp. First rate guide. Marvellous wildlife. Tafika - Bush walking was great. Guides very knowledgeable. Old Mondoro - Great Camp. Water activities a real plus, and good to wash out all that dust at the end. Thanks again. A wonderful trip and just the right mix of experiences.

August 2016

Hello Rob, we had the "trip of a lifetime" ! Skeleton Coast Safaris were the best. Andre was our pilot, and his son Kyle came too. We had the plane to ourselves as no-one else came with us. They also gave us a tent each at their camps which made all the difference. Our driver - Binius - at Ongava was excellent - to be recommended. Victoria Falls Hotel is a must! So unspoilt.
Rosemary from Berkshire travelled to Namibia and Zimbabwe

August 2016

Hi Michele, we're back and the choice is between sorting out the suitcases or going back over the details of a really stunning holiday, I've chosen the latter! Thanks for organising everything, we really appreciate the thought you put into the planning. We weren't on the go every hour of every day, but we enjoyed a few half days just soaking up the view and atmosphere.
Ray and Janet from Buckinghamshire travelled to Namibia and Zimbabwe

Harvey and Helen from Suffolk travelled to Zimbabwe

July 2016

Hi Frances, got back from Africa this morning and thought I’d drop you a quick email to say thanks for putting it together. Everything worked perfectly and we had an amazing time. nThambo was great with us seeing all the “big 5” plus many other things. Bayete was a great base from which to see Vic Falls and was very pleasant. The surprise for me was Imbabala. When you sent me the itinerary I thought Imbabala might be the weakest of the locations offering not that much and was worried the kids might be bored. I couldn’t have been more wrong. We were all blown away by the place and thought it was fantastic with some great activity options and so relaxing. The staff were amazing too. I would have no hesitation recommending your services to anyone and would also recommend highly all three locations you booked for us.
James, Sian, Richard and Tia from Wales travelled to Zimbabwe and South Africa

July 2016

Hi Michele, “Wow”, what a trip, thank you so much for putting together the African experience of a lifetime for Judith and I. Vundu Camp was fantastic, the rooms were perfect and the food excellent. What sets Vundu Camp apart from other camps that we have visited is the quality of the Zimbabwean Guides. Nick and Alex took us on an unforgettable adventure. We tracked wild dogs, lions and leopards. We walked in closely and quietly to the wild dogs den and watched spellbound as the hunting pack came back and fed the twelve pups. We walked with huge male elephants as they stood almost on their hind legs eating from the trees. We saw female leopards fighting over a kill and the dogs hunting anything they could see. All our questions were met with incredible knowledge and a passion that was clear to see. Sad though we were to leave Vundu, Hwange proved every bit as exciting. We continued to walk on every occasion that we could, tracking lions, dogs and leopards. We can only say that anyone with an ounce of adventure needs to go on safari in Zimbabwe. The guys running the camps need all the support that they can get from tourism to keep up the standards that they have set for themselves. In addition, they also assist, at no little expense to themselves, with the massive anti-poaching effort that is continuing in Zimbabwe. More importantly they are winning. We can’t wait to get back there and in the meantime, will recommend these camps to our wildlife loving, adventurous friends. Thank you so much
Steve and Judith from Shrewsbury travelled to Zimbabwe

July 2016

Dear Rob, overall the experience was amazing. The conditions for travelling around were brilliant. Roads v good. And country very safe, people were incredibly friendly and welcoming. The tourism infrastructure is good. Matobo Hills was fabulous and well worth a visit. And the caves with ancient paintings were wonderful. Hwange, Davison’s Camp – faultless. We were met by a wonderful guide and had the most fabulous picnic lunch on the way down to Davisons. The catering was outstanding – every single touch from sherry on arrival, to fabulous afternoon tea, wonderful brunch, brilliant early morning breakfast by the camp fire and excellent dinners and sundowners. We saw loads of animals including the cheetah. It was really wonderful and incredibly beautiful. I can thoroughly recommend Zim. A wonderful country and people with good infrastructure and has the advantage of not being overrun by tourists.
Nicole and Guy from Essex travelled to Zimbabwe

January 2015

Rob, you have just got to promote this destination more. The country, its people, birdlife, wildlife and culture were just fantastic. Everyone was so friendly. Save Valley Conservancy was fascinating - spent a morning game drive with people from the wild dog research project and enjoyed great views of wild dog. Amalinda was wonderful - tucked away into the granite outcrops. Stunning location and we saw white rhino and Cecil Rhodes' final resting place. Somalisa was stunning and contemporary. Hundreds of elephant virtually all the time drinking in the water hole and trough just yards away. Camp Hwange - just mind-boggling. We spent time with the Lion Research Project team that oversaw Cecil. Julian was a fantastic host. We also saw leopard and clocked up our 300th different bird specie on our last morning in camp! All in all, an amazing trip - with a mix of culture, birding, wildlife, scenery, and fascinating conversations over dinner tables. I have become a Zimbabwe ambassador - the country needs more tourists to go and see what it has to offer away from Mana and the usual travel hotspots. This is a travel circuit that could well prove of interest to experienced African travellers who are not simply interested in wildlife watching. We loved the changing scenery, terrain, climate, culture, flora and fauna. To rack up 300 birds over the duration of the trip was brilliant including lots of 'lifers'. As you can probably tell - we had a great time. Thanks again for making it possible.
Peter and Anne from Cambridge travelled to Zimbabwe

October/November 2015

The whole trip was seamless, as expected. The camps, people and game viewing were brilliant, as good as anyone could expect. Thank you for organising such a great trip.
Richard and Christine from Preston travelled to Zimbabwe

October 2015

Hello Mary, overall...a great, most enjoyable & successful trip. Arrangements all immaculate with excellent rooms/ guides allocated. Thank you! Highlights...29 leopards in about 22 sightings including family with kill, 2 very close encounters which had adrenalin going and 1 who ran hard at us and we thought he may jump in! Some excellent photos and some of the most memorable encounters with leopards, lions and elephants we have experienced in 20 years+ of safaris. Kuyenda - Excellent! Best camp, best guide/armed ranger (Kelvin & Isaiah), best food and outstanding hosting from Babette & Phil. Attention to detail and simple bush style memorable. Old Mondoro – Great camp and friendly hosts Dave & Tess. Chiawa - Some great spots and encounters. Ruckomechi - Lovely room & setting. Kango - Really good camp, friendly welcome and staff. Good guide Bono who got us so close to pack of 28 Wild Dog under trees. Victoria Falls Hotel - Wonderful and loved our stay! Very attentive staff with some real stars. Very pleased with all your arrangements!
Geoffrey and Teresa from Oxfordshire travelled to Zambia and Zimbabwe

September/October 2015

We would like to thank you so much, especially Michele for all your advice and help. The arrangements were not the most straightforward but you had carried them out so that everything ran seamlessly. I did not want to return to the UK and can’t wait for our next visit. I will be starting to plan again with Michele as soon as I finish the laundry!! Thank you so much.
Christopher and Rosemary from Wiltshire travelled to South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Namibia

August 2015

Hi Rob, just want to say thank you for helping to organise Alisha and my trip to South Africa and Zimbabwe. I must say I was a little hesitant that the trip may not live up to the memories of our Kenyan trip in 2013. Well I am happy to say that whilst this trip was different (which is what you want) it was every bit as wonderful. Umkumbe - our guide, Mauritz, was excellent and whilst animal sightings were hard to find he put in an almighty effort. Accommodation and food were great. At Ilala Lodge in Victoria Falls the elephant back safari was brilliant and helicopter flight over the falls – spectacular. Finished the day with a relaxing sunset river cruise and some good animal sightings along the shore. The lodge and staff were terrific. Camp Hwange - from the minute we were picked up at the gate we knew this was going to be a great few days. Our guide Quinn was brilliant, the other staff at camp were lovely too. The food and accommodation fantastic. Really enjoyed the walking - walking up to the bull elephant was a little scary but thrilling at the same time. The birds were amazing especially the martial eagle with its genet kill. Our final morning was particularly memorable as we were woken by the male lions roaring quite close to camp and were able to catch up with them and the lionesses and cubs. Then on our drive back to the gate we came across a large pride of lionesses and their cubs (12 or more). Thanks again for all your help and advice. This trip has once again left us wanting more and I hope to be organising another adventure in the not too distant future. Botswana here we come!
Virginia and Alisha from Australia travelled to South Africa and Zimbabwe

June 2015

Dear Michele, we flew in safely on Thursday afternoon having had the most wonderful holiday in Zimbabwe. Everything that you fixed for us worked like clockwork and we are extremely grateful to you for all the planning and organisation you put into it. We found the Victoria Falls Hotel beautifully refurbished with the staff as charming and helpful as usual. Thank you for getting us a room overlooking the falls. The food was excellent and we loved our 2 days. I did put one small point on the questionnaire you sent us stating that the street vendors at The Falls were a bit of a nuisance and wouldn't take no for an answer but on the other hand we appreciate they are unemployed and desperate for money. Camp Hwange was fantastic, the camp was perfect and in a great position. The staff were charming and helpful and the food was excellent. The guiding was exceptional; we had 2 guides Quinn being the senior and Stephen as a second. We walked everyday and did drives too and they did their best to show us as much game as they could. Quinn's knowledge of the bush and animals was very impressive. Bearing in mind it was early in the season, the grass was still tall, there was a lot of water about due to late rains and the foliage was still on the trees we did extremely well and our last afternoon was memorably spent next to a lion with 2 lionesses and 2 cubs next to their kill - what more can you ask for! As you know we also spent 4 nights on a very smart houseboat on Kariba with friends which was great but fishing for bream not so good! Two nights at Inn on Rupurara at Inyanga was excellent too and I would highly recommend it. Thank you so much for all your organisation, it worked like clockwork and our holiday exceeded our expectations by a long way. We found most people we talked to in Zimbabwe reasonably optimistic and both Vic Falls and Camp Hwange were doing well with visitors from all over the world, but not many British I'm sad to say.
Clinton and Suzi from Winchester travelled to Zimbabwe

May 2015

Hi Rob, thanks for organizing a great trip. Selinda Camp was amazing! Food was probably the best we have had from all the camps we stayed and the guides are good. Victoria Falls was spectacular. Thanks again!
Tommy and Annie from Singapore travelled to Botswana and Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

November 2014

Hi Rob, We had a superb holiday, thank you. We're glad we started with Victoria Falls as were a bit tired at the end of the holiday and the low water did enable is to get a better view. We managed to see leopards for the first time, we witnessed a lion kill and we managed to catch roan, sable, genet, civet and a host of birds too numerous to mention. The guides were excellent at all of the camps and the camp crew / support staff were all good and everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. Food was very good in all the camps and the rooms were fine - we wish all tents were as luxurious. Would we go on this type of trip again. Yes. Would we consider using Safari Consultants? Yes.
Graham and Angela from Surrey travelled to Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe and Botswana

October 2014

Hello Rob, the post holiday blues will never go away after a holiday like this, it is a case of learning to deal with them. When I had experiences like a pack of wild dog looking at us from 40 yards away, getting to about 10 yards downwind from a bull elephant who knew we were there but could not make out what we were, sitting with James (guide) watching hyena go past us in an open area about 30 yards away wondering what we were (judging by the way they were looking at us), I cannot wait until the next visit.
Graham from Chelmsford went walking in Mana Pools and Hwange National Parks, Zimbabwe

August 2014

Dear Rob, I am writing to say thank-you for organising a wonderful safari, it lived up to our expectations and we all had a lovely time. All the accommodation was very comfortable, excellent and very tasty food. We all enjoyed the true wilderness experience and diversity of the landscape and appreciate that you did ensure we saw different areas so thank-you. The smells and sounds of Africa are of course one of the best bits and I loved the bee eaters which I have never seen before. We do feel we have had a very special holiday so thank-you for all your organisation.
Adrian and Sally travelled to Zimbabwe and Botswana

August 2014

Dear Rob, I just wanted to thank you for organising such a wonderful safari. It all went like clockwork with no hitches. We were warmly welcomed where ever we went and the staff and guides were excellent, cheerful, friendly and helpful. The lodges were luxurious! The sundowners were special in that our guides chose beautiful places for us to get out of the vehicle, the surrounding bushes inspected for any nasty surprises and we enjoyed watching the sun go down with the different reflections and light that seems to only happen in Africa. Every lodge was different in different terrain and we saw lots of lovely birds and animals and were able to get close to many of them. We enjoyed the walks, Mokoro and boat trips. Lots of new experiences and it was a very happy family holiday. Thank you very much for choosing such lovely places to visit. Well done Rob, you did us proud.
Rosemary and family from Yorkshire travelled to Zimbabwe and Botswana

Dear Rob - We want to say thank you so much for all you did to make our trip such a success! Each time I share and reflect on our many adventures, I appreciate more and more the many amazing people, animals, landscapes, skies and African wonders we encountered. Thank you again, and if our travel adventures lead us to spend more time in Africa, you and your company will be the first to know!

May/June 2014

Hi Rob. We had an absolutely amazing time. “This is the best yet!” was spoken every day, right up to departure. I think I can speak for everyone in saying this was the best trip of our lifetimes. We are so grateful for the care you put into setting up this trip - it was beyond fabulous!!
Joni and Matthew from Colorado, USA, travelled to Zimbabwe and Botswana

May/June 2014

Hi Michele, the holiday was great, mana pools is such a beautiful place. Lots of game and I finally saw leopard up close. The wild dogs were unique I saw two packs at Kanga and Ruchomechi. Both camps were excellent great food and accommodation. Ruchomechi was busy with not enough jeeps , particularly if you wanted to go out with just your own party. Guides were excellent, beautiful setting. Kanga great camp, food and tents great - had the honeymoon suite fab. The guides weren't as experienced. Zimbabwe is fast becoming my favourite African country. Thank you for all your help.

Neil is a travel agent that worked with us on a safari for his clients

January 2012

Rob, we’re back after a fantastic three weeks in Zimbabwe and Mozambique. Arrangements went like clockwork; transfers were spot on; guides and accommodation were great and we had some amazing experiences. Thank you so much for your attention to detail; your knowledge and willingness to work with Rob Janisch to make it all come together. We remain great ambassadors for Safari Consultants and passed on your details to most people we met! Zimbabwe really captured our hearts. Great people; wonderful wildlife; and amazing scenery. Craig Van Zyl was great and the wildlife at Mana Pools was fantastic. The food/camp/hosting was superb. Must enlarge on our Mana experiences when we see you. Lots to tell!!!!! The Vumba was a terrific idea – and Rob Janisch proved a great host up in the mountains. I think the area could form a great bridge between Mana Pools and Mozambique. Explore Gorongosa was brilliant – Rob hosted us personally all the time and to be honest, made us feel like one of the family. You just know we’ll be talking to you before long about our next African adventure. Thank you once again.

I cannot express my enjoyment of the trip to the full extent!! Jonny gave us exceptional advice and support and everything provided prior to the trip was detailed and relevant. We would do the whole thing again….tomorrow!! A fantastic experience which outstripped the expectations and this was largely due to the organization and professionalism of staff.

Hi Rob, it was a wonderful adventure holiday in every way. We were so lucky with the Skeleton Coast Safari and Andre Schoeman who was a fantastic guide and told us so much of the country and its people, etc. We were the only two on board the Cessna apart from pilot Andre and his son who was almost a pilot! We had tents to ourselves at the camps so room to spread our bits and pieces and we were looked after royally. The final stop at Victoria Falls was a delightful end and seeing the Falls at close proximity made it much more realistic. We had a 13 minute helicopter flight which was incredible. We saw many animals particularly at Ongava and Etosha - all making it a memorable holiday. Hope we will be doing another with you before too long!
