Having specialised in travel to Africa since 1983, we are extremely proud and fortunate to have built up a wonderful customer base of repeat travellers, who also recommend our services to their friends, family and colleagues, or even fellow travellers they meet on safari. Our aim is for every holiday we arrange to be perfect for the people who undertake them. Listed below are some of the comments we have received from our customers. Please also visit the AITO (Association of Independent Tour Operators) feedback site to see reviews on our services and our clients’ experiences.

If you wanted to look for something to moan about, you would not be able to do so. Every aspect was truly amazing. The staff (all) at the lodge were so professional and friendly. My wife and I would recommend both yourself and the lodge to anybody. Robert Slater was so helpful to us.

Hi Rob, we had a superb time, Rissington Inn was extra interesting because the Rissingtons, after which it was named, are not far from us here in the Cotswolds and we understood the relevance of the pictures of American bombers! The highlights of the trip were the wild dogs and all the game that we saw, especially the pair of Honey Badgers that we saw out foraging in broad daylight in the Kruger, what a treat, never seen them before or expected to. Altogether a very good, stress free holiday, many thanks for your planning and organising.

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!

Hi Michele, many thanks for organizing us another great trip!, we have always wanted to see the Delta and it was great to see…we enjoyed the diversity of the trip and we saw and did a lot in the 2 weeks. We loved the team at Savute and the location of Kanana….and it was great to end at Waterberry Lodge where we saw the falls from both sides…We look forward to our next trip!

Gary and Kat from London travelled to Botswana and Zambia

Hello Bill, this trip to Zambia surpassed our highest hopes, special sightings just kept coming and by the end exceeded anything we had a right to expect. Across all camps we had sightings of eight Leopards, at least as many of Lions, some great Elephant, Hippos and more Giraffe than we have seen anywhere the list just goes on. We also had a really good range of bird viewing, lots of raptors, waders, Bee-eaters, Nightjar again the list just goes on. All the camps were first class with great hospitality, good accommodation and food. The decision to opt for private guiding was more than justified; James Chabuka is an excellent guide and very good company. In Lower Zambezi the tempo of sightings did not slow down. At Old Mondoro we had a brief sighting of Bush Pig, and a daytime sighting of two Porcupine, Lion close to camp and of course many Elephant in camp; again lots of good bird watching and a very good morning walk. Chiawa proved that the best is saved till last. A morning river cruise produced the best bird watching we have had, particularly notable was a Goliath Heron struggling with a large Bream which it eventually managed to swallow, much to our amazement. Once again our thanks for your faultless organisation.
