Luke and Caroline from Berkshire travelled to Kenya & TanzaniaHi Rob, Caroline and I would like to thank you for organising the most wonderful trip that exceeded all expectations for our silver wedding anniversary holiday. In the Serengeti we saw a crossing of Wildebeest across the Mara river and crocs taking their share. We were lucky enough to see all the big cats – Lions, Leopards, Cheetahs as well as plenty of Elephants, Giraffes, Hippos, Buffalo, Hyena, Zebra, Ostrich, Baboon, Bat eared foxes, plus many more. In short, fantastic and we loved the Kirurumu North camp (once we got used to the Zebra and Wildebeest roaming through camp!). In Ruaha we saw several prides of lions, cheetahs climbing trees, jackals, greater and lesser Kudu and an Eagle owl . It was interesting to see the elephants digging for water in the sand river and the Mwagusi camp team organised a day of private guiding followed by a wonderful champagne and cake sundowner on the actual day of our anniversary which was great. In Selous we had Elephants, Hippos, Bushbabies and Genet Cats in camp (the last two joining us on our dinner table!). We spent time with a family of wild dogs (sightings are not frequent we understand) and saw several Lions (including one up a tree with his kill below!). We also saw many birds including eagles, bee-eaters, pelicans, storks and a swarm of killer bees! Selous Impala organised a lovely champagne and nibbles sundowner at the end of our afternoon river safari followed by an anniversary bush dinner at camp complete with our own fire! On Mafia we swam with whale sharks, snorkelled over excellent coral in the marine park with lion fish, moray eels and many others. Thanks again to you and the team for a great job!Luke and Caroline from Berkshire travelled to Kenya & Tanzania

Ivor and Anita from Staffordshire travelled to KenyaHi Frances, what can we say about the holiday other than it was better than either Anita and I expected; it was truly a holiday of a lifetime. After deciding at the age of 10 and waiting 50 years for the opportunity it surpassed our expectations! The camps you recommended were perfect, the guys running the camps the staff were all superb and the guides were unbelievable with their knowledge and enthusiasm. Nothing was too much trouble. The accommodation was a dream, the food simply amazing and the experience of the animals left us lost for words. The walking experience was one of the greatest experiences of our lives and how well we were looked after and we saw a Leopard, yes a Leopard whilst we were walking – even the guides were blown away by that. One of the best experiences of the safari was simply being wrapped up in ponchos with a mug of hot chocolate, in complete darkness looking at the vast array of stars and just listening to the night! Frances, we can’t thank you enough; you really listened to us and every detail was spot on, we could not find fault with anything.Ivor and Anita from Staffordshire travelled to Kenya

Sharon from California travelled to South Africa & BotswanaHi Mary, I’m composing this on the plane home from Johannesburg, while memories are clear. In sum, everything went swimmingly. Not one hitch in the gittalong; every transfer was in place when I arrived, every hotel had the reservation as planned, every camp was ready and all flights were on time. Suffice to say, they were all marvelous, and I had some incredible, once in a lifetime sightings.Sharon from California travelled to South Africa & Botswana

Marion from Worcestershire travelled to ZimbabweDear 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 holidayMarion from Worcestershire travelled to Zimbabwe

Ross and Shona from West Sussex travelled to KenyaDear Mary, AITO forms with yes or no answers do not reveal that much so I’ve decided to drop you a more personal line. Various people sent you their best wishes by the way. We had a Wonderful safari (I think our fourth with you) and thank you for all your help planning it. You, your company and it’s organisation are amongst the very best in the business. We absolutely loved Serian Original and would certainly go again, the moral of our story is that for us the most important thing is the quantity of game and the interactions that result. Spas, gyms and mountains of delicious food are all wonderful but for us we’d happily forego them all for a cracking game drive.Ross and Shona from West Sussex travelled to Kenya

Wayne and Gail from Alberta, Canada travelled to Tanzania and RwandaHi Julia, our trip to Africa was fantastic and incredible – we are very grateful for all your work on our behalf. While we had high expectations going in, the trip, itinerary and people of Africa exceeded them. The gorillas were the highlight, although the other animals were also amazing. The amount of information and knowledge that the guides shared was equally amazing. We learnt so much in the two weeks, both about the animals and people. I recall mentioning on one of our calls that we were going into this as a once in a lifetime trip, and you mentioned that we might change our minds – you were right. We will go back to Africa at some point. Thanks for all your assistance and guidance. It made the trip special. Thank you for creating such a wonderful experience for us.Wayne and Gail from Alberta, Canada travelled to Tanzania and Rwanda
