Hi Julia, it was absolutely fantastic and thank you so much for arranging it for me. As a lady travelling on my own it was perfect. I always felt safe and well looked after. It was also great that my guide was a photographer so it meant that he knew what angles to look for. A trip of a lifetime. Thanks again

Hi Frances, we are still desperately trying to hold onto that holiday feeling! The tan, however is fading! Kings Camp was stunning – we had such a warm welcome. Everything about it was perfect, the staff who work at the camp all have their own personality whilst delivering a first class service – the facilities are first rate, a fantastic spa and a gym! The Wi-Fi worked better than our Wi-Fi in Cape Town! The game viewing was incredible – we saw the big 5 in the first 3 drives and was lucky enough to see wild dogs and twice witnessed leopards with their kill. The surprises kept coming… One night we came back from our drive and they had arranged for private dining on our room veranda, complete with a hot bath they had already run with candles all around it. A full on braai one night in a different outdoor dining area with us all sat in a semi circle – great to mix up the setting whilst being able to mix more with other guests. A surprise bush breakfast one morning where they took us to a site with tables and chairs, full cook area and a proper luxury outdoor loo! We can’t thank you enough for such an incredible trip, we are hooked – we are thinking next trip may be Botswana! Which we would naturally come to you for. Thanks again.

Hello Frances. Our entire trip was just excellent – we have absolutely no complaints and in fact there is nothing we would have wished to have happened differently throughout our Rwanda and Tanzania visits. So we thank Safari Consultants and yourself in particular for the expert help and guidance throughout the planning and for arranging such an amazing itinerary for us with all the local support we received throughout. Everyone must have gorilla stories – suffice it to say we were so pleased that we did the monkeys and then gorillas twice as you advised; and we were so well supported and helped (literally!) on the treks – and were just so amazed and enthralled by our gorilla encounters (including a 2 day old baby gorilla in the Agashya group!). Lamai Serengeti, as you had advised, was just perfect – we saw and learnt so much and again, as you suggested we were so pleased we had 4 nights to relax there and get to know that incredible part of Tanzania. Thank you again – and best wishes – we most certainly will be in contact again when we are considering an African trip in the future; and we will definitely be recommending Safari Consultants to our family and friends.

Thank you to Michele for organising our truly wonderful trip and for all the help when Eliza was taken ill and taken into Nairobi Hospital, where she received very professional care.

Dear Frances, we are back from our holiday now, and I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you very much for your help, work, suggestions and planning. The trip could not have been any better – the camps were perfect and everything ran smoothly. Ol Malo was the perfect place to start off, Colin and Rocky were fantastic and the camels and horses were a big hit. So, my family and I extend our heartfelt thanks to you and Safari Consultants.

Tim, Louisa and Scarlett from France travelled to Kenya

Hi Michele, we had a wonderful holiday, and everything went smoothly. The camps were as excellent as usual. At Valley Camp we went on a night drive and saw a lot of smaller animals (genets, mongooses, spring hares etc.), plus an aardwolf, which I’d never seen before. We also saw a cheetah with the most adorable 4 young cubs gambolling about on the plains in daylight. That was a great sighting. The fly camp was just brilliant. We took it at a very relaxed pace and saw a lot more big game than I expected. A group of sleepy buffalo having a rest at about 60m, the usual grazers & browsers who moved away pretty quickly. Saw baboons, vultures, elephants & a pair of cheetahs at just over 100m away, a couple of lone buffalo as we approached Bush Camp. A lot of fun. Thank you so much for a really well-organised trip. Every time I am impressed with your attention to detail, the smooth running of the trips, and of course they way each trip fits our requirements so well, steering me away from things I would hate ;-).  You really do an excellent job! Thank you.

Frances, I just wanted to say thank you to you and your team for all your help with our recent safari vacation. We had a spectacular time and thoroughly enjoyed the entire trip! Kenya was just amazing and my daughters fell in love with the country. The trip to Devil’s Pool was out of this world. Everything was just perfect and we already want to go back. Thanks so much.
