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.

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.

Dear Rob, we had an amazing trip and we fell in love with Zambia. I think the highlights were Old Mondoro Camp – every day we had elephant overload – it was amazing. The varied activities were also a plus. We loved Kaingo camp – the camp managers were really great and the food was superb! Lastly, we loved ending at Tongabezi. Thanks for all of your help on planning this and you did a fabulous job on recommending the camps.

Hello Rob, All you really need to know is….that it was the best holiday we have ever had, all of us felt this way. Simply stunning locations with fabulous service and plenty of fun to be had. We’re all aching to go back. True desert island paradise at Denis Island and then Etali Safari Lodge and Tuningi were the perfect places to introduce the children to Safari which they absolutely loved. Cheesy as it sounds we have made some truly incredible family memories that will last us a lifetime. Thank you – you gave us everything and more than we could have hoped for; it was a brilliant itinerary with top organisation. To have everything so well thought through and organised by someone we totally trust really put us all at ease. Thanks again for an absolute cracker!

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.

Dear Jane, just finishing breakfast in the courtyard at Auberge Clermont on the last day of the best holiday of our lives. Superlatives don’t come close…but perfect, stupendous, spectacular are getting there. Everything has been just perfect – down to the last and finest details: thanks so much for organising a quite wonderful trip. The safari was brilliant – we saw everything and Tanda Tula camp and team were fab. Glen Avon was so smart and friendly. Mosselberg was spectacular. That room! That view! And we did get to see (just two, but enough) some whales. Then Franschhoek to end it all…wine tram a perfect way to see the vineyards (hic!) We plan to amble back via Richard Branson’s place then Stellenbosch en route to the Airport. As you inferred at the beginning, we will certainly be back as well as evangelists for Safari Consultants hereon in. Thanks again.

Rob, returned from a great holiday last night. Things went really well. Super impressed with you and the business. Felt from the beginning that you spent enough time chatting around what we were looking for and had loads of suggestions and useful advice. From there the admin and the interaction was really professional and ultimately it all worked like clockwork.
