Rob and Bill, we’ve made it home from our wonderful trip. Thanks to you for the great organisation. On the whole, the South Luangwa portion was great and the camps were top notch. We found some spectacular landscapes, with long open views and green grass. Good people and great guides. Kafue was even better than expected. Phil and Tyrone have a unique opportunity to develop their area. They’re young, have the energy, have the proper ethos of engagement with their wildlife, a sense of style and know their stuff. These guys deserve the support you can give them. Many thanks again and I look forward to staying in touch.

Hello Mary, thank you so much for arranging Tanda Tula for us which was every bit as fantastic as when Julie and I were there sixteen years ago. It was lovely to see some of the same staff too! We had a wonderful time and the two in our party who had not done safari before were completely in awe. I will be in touch again when I have saved for the next adventure!

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.

Dear Frances, we want to start by saying that we had the most amazing trip – we don’t make wish lists (“if you want to guarantee what you see, go to the zoo”), but we saw everything we could have hoped for and so much more, both in the variety of wildlife and animal behaviour. To summarize for all three camps, they provided really good accommodation, very good food and friendly, efficient staff. This trip reinforced the importance to us of (i) staying on conservancies and (ii) having our own guide/vehicle. Above all, the standard of guiding and understanding of the requirements for wildlife photographers was impressive. We didn’t see the need to go into the national reserve, as there was so much going on within the conservancies. An amazing trip which we both enjoyed enormously, and we now have to wade through all the photos (Sandra – 2,618 Ken over 4,000). Many thanks for booking us exactly what we asked for and for the additions you made (like booking us a hotel within the confines of Nairobi airport for our return). If you want us to sum the trip up in one word, it’s got to be that word again – WOW!!.

Rob, thanks for your Welcome Home note. Overall, it was an excellent trip. La Plume and Savanna were the stand-out stars without question. And if we chose one of those 2, then clearly Savanna would be the absolute best. Janice wrote in the book that we arrived as clients and left as friends. Quite brilliant. All the best and thanks for fixing what was, and always will be, a memorable trip.

Dear Rob, it was a wonderful trip and we were so lucky with game – five leopards on one night drive seems to have been an Amanzi record! I also saw my second Pel’s Fishing owl after 16 years waiting. Amanzi Camp was Excellent. Wonderful location, spacious and comfortable accommodation, very good food and service throughout the camp. Patrick our guide was superb. He had an uncanny knack of always knowing exactly where the leopard would be. Bilimungwe – Excellent. Much more rustic, spacious and comfortable accommodation with the added benefit of an outdoor shower. Alex the camp manager was terrific. Our guide Charles was extremely good and it was only on the last night that I realised he had been our guide for the few days we spent in the Luangwa on an Art Safari trip in 2008. Kaingo Camp was excellent in so many ways, with amazing food a great ambiance and the hides. The landscape was extraordinary and the leadwood forest utterly beautiful. There was plentiful game and it was a special privilege to walk with Derek Shenton. Thanks again for organising such a fantastic trip to Zambia, which I enjoyed so very much. Every day was amazing with excellent guides and unbelievable game.

Dear Mary, we’d like to say a big thank you for putting together such a great safari trip for us. We had an excellent time. All the camps were first class but diverse and we had really good guides. Thanks once again
