Please also visit the AITO (Association of Independent Tour Operators) feedback site to see reviews on our services and our clients’ experiences.

Dear Frances, just to say the safaris were excellent. Your service was brilliant. Ange and I had a fabulous time. I’ll be filling in the questionnaire but just wanted you to know everything went well and all the pickups and hotels worked very well too. We were thrilled with both the Offbeat and the Naboisho experiences. It was a good mix and the flycamp was a marvellous icing on the cake and several of the other guests at Naboisho were envious of our experience though the walking safari was a good part of it too. We did see such diversity the abundance and close encounters were truly fabulous. Thanks for all your expertise in sorting places which were exactly right for what we were seeking. Much appreciated.

As ever we had an excellent African experience. Special thanks to Michele for all her advice and patience. I am already putting something together for her to organise for 2017.

Chris and Rosemary from Wiltshire travelled to South Africa

July/August 2016

Dear Michele, everything ran very smoothly, all flights, meet and greets, and camps were ready. We enjoyed our 50th and 18th birthday and 25th wedding anniversary at all camps – we had bubbly and cake! The trip was well planned with a chance to relax more and go at a slower pace at our last camp. This was even better as we were the only ones in camp for 3 nights! It was great to be able to go on the river to have a bit more variety. We had a great time and saw good game – including a close encounter with a hippo! and 9 week old lion cubs. Thank You.

Another very successful holiday, our 7th organised by Safari Consultants. As always, they delivered everything we required in terms of itinerary, accommodation and transfers, and once again we benefited from their detailed first-hand knowledge of every property we used. Their meticulous attention to extra details makes life easier for someone of 76 with mobility problems, from ordering a wheelchair at airports to requesting a room nearest the main living area was much appreciated. Safari Consultants’ service is not just excellent, it is outstanding and has been so without exception ever since we first travelled with them. We would never consider using any other company to organise a holiday for us in southern or eastern Africa.

John and Jennifer from Berkshire travelled to Kenya and Seychelles

July/August 2016

Hello Mary, thanks again for your help in organising what was an absolutely tremendous holiday. My boys loved it right from the start of walking across the car park at Kenyatta Airport to find we were straight into a safari 4×4, and I’ve never heard my wife use the word “awesome” as much as the last fortnight. We saw some phenomenal habitats and wildlife, stayed in some fabulous accommodation, met some lovely people, and the welcome and hospitality extended to us was almost uniformly warm and generous throughout.

Graeme, Fiona, Duncan and Iain from East Dunbartonshire travelled to Kenya and Tanzania

July/August 2016

Hello Rob, we had a fantastic holiday and all of the arrangements made by Safari Consultants worked like clockwork! Thank you for your excellent recommendations for accommodation and for the faultless arrangements. We loved everywhere we stayed.

Philip, Mary, Emma and William from Oxfordshire travelled to South Africa

August 2016

Hello Mary, we had an absolutely fantastic time. We loved the Mara Camp – the managers and staff were so friendly and helpful. Alex keeps telling everyone about the charcoal oven and how fantastic the food was. Our guide Jimmy was lovely and a very good photographer, we miss him lots. I was delighted that every single arrangement you made for us to be met and transported from one place to another went according to plan. Thank you so much.

Linda and Alexander from London travelled to Kenya and Tanzania

Hi Rob, the safari camp was awesome – far better than I expected. The staff were amazing and the food was fantastic and they made us feel really welcome. Our guide (Mike) was very knowledgeable and a genuine nice guy. Super pleased with the service you delivered – can’t fault it! Will certainly recommend you to anyone who is in earshot.

Harvey and Helen from Suffolk travelled to Zimbabwe

July 2016

Hi Frances, got back from Africa this morning and thought I’d drop you a quick email to say thanks for putting it together. Everything worked perfectly and we had an amazing time. nThambo was great with us seeing all the “big 5” plus many other things. Bayete was a great base from which to see Vic Falls and was very pleasant. The surprise for me was Imbabala. When you sent me the itinerary I thought Imbabala might be the weakest of the locations offering not that much and was worried the kids might be bored. I couldn’t have been more wrong. We were all blown away by the place and thought it was fantastic with some great activity options and so relaxing. The staff were amazing too. I would have no hesitation recommending your services to anyone and would also recommend highly all three locations you booked for us.

James, Sian, Richard and Tia from Wales travelled to Zimbabwe and South Africa

July 2016

Hi Michele, we’re back and the choice is between sorting out the suitcases or going back over the details of a really stunning holiday, I’ve chosen the latter! Thanks for organising everything, we really appreciate the thought you put into the planning. We weren’t on the go every hour of every day, but we enjoyed a few half days just soaking up the view and atmosphere.
