Rob, we’re back after a fantastic three weeks in Zimbabwe and Mozambique. Arrangements went like clockwork; transfers were spot on; guides and accommodation were great and we had some amazing experiences. Thank you so much for your attention to detail; your knowledge and willingness to work with Rob Janisch to make it all come together. We remain great ambassadors for Safari Consultants and passed on your details to most people we met! Zimbabwe really captured our hearts. Great people; wonderful wildlife; and amazing scenery. Craig Van Zyl was great and the wildlife at Mana Pools was fantastic. The food/camp/hosting was superb. Must enlarge on our Mana experiences when we see you. Lots to tell!!!!! The Vumba was a terrific idea – and Rob Janisch proved a great host up in the mountains. I think the area could form a great bridge between Mana Pools and Mozambique. Explore Gorongosa was brilliant – Rob hosted us personally all the time and to be honest, made us feel like one of the family. You just know we’ll be talking to you before long about our next African adventure. Thank you once again.

First of all, can I say that we had a wonderful trip which far exceeded our expectations; both camps were excellent and Pinewood also looked after us very well indeed; Edna was a gem who helped us every time we asked and our chef was also very special. Thank you, Mary, for arranging what was for us, the trip of a lifetime.

Roy and Doreen travelled on a ‘safari and beach’ holiday to Kenya

July 2011

This was our first safari trip. Contacting Safari Consultants (Rob Slater) was the best decision we made. Rob spent a lot of time and trouble understanding the needs (and hopes) of our family and putting together an outstanding package. We could not have asked for more. We spent 11 days in Kenya, visiting 3 contrasting camps (Lewa Conservancy, Sarara and Kicheche Bush). All were excellent in their distinctive way, providing the family with an unforgettable experience.

Hi Jonny, I just wanted to tell you what a fabulous time we had in Kenya.  Thank you for managing to arrange the holiday at such short notice.  Everything about it was excellent: beautiful accommodation, superb guides (particular mention to Jacob and Stanley who were both exceptional), camp managers (in particular James), wonderful staff and plentiful and delicious food.  All the travel arrangements worked smoothly.  We saw every animal that we hoped to see, including the wildebeest migration. It was a holiday to remember and we hope that we’ll have a chance to return to Kenya at some point.

An excellent trip! Safari Consultants, particularly Michele Seamark, were superb. All questions we answered promptly and in detail and every part of the holiday ran incredibly smoothly.

Tom and Louise travelled to Kenya and Zanzibar on honeymoon

July 2011

In short it was a brilliant holiday that was characterised by charismatic camp managers, outrageous humour, caring staff, excellent food and unforgettable interactions with animals. Thank you for once again providing me with an itinerary that exactly matched my expectations and which as before was flawless in its planning and execution.

John travelled to the Selous and Ruaha in southern Tanzania

June 2011

We had a really great holiday. A particular highlight was our guide from Letaka Safaris (Nkosi). He was simply amazing and I would highly recommend him to anyone- we saw loads of lions, leopards, wild dogs, impala, kudu, zebra, elephants, giraffes, monkeys, buffalo and many more things. Both camps and mobile safari were superb.

Christopher, Farah and family travelled through Botswana

July 2011

Just a brief note to let you know that we had a fabulous time in Botswana. Our experience matched what we wanted from the trip and we really felt that you had understood what we were looking for – and more importantly what we didn’t want.  We did lots of miles in the short time we were there and you definatley met our expectation that the journey had to be part of the experience! For our first visit we liked the mix of drives, walking, boats and mokoro.  It means we can tailor a future trip more specifically now we have a better feel for the areas. Food and hospitality throughout could not be faulted. All in all we were very satisified with the trip and had a fabulous experience.  It left us wanting more of Africa and for me that’s the hallmark of a good holiday.

Allison and Stephen travelled through Botswana, mostly on a private camping safari

Late May/ June 2011

Hi Michele, I just wanted to let you know that we’re back safely and we had a wonderful time. You couldn’t have done a better job in organising the holiday — it did everything I had hoped for and more.

We have complete satisfaction with Safari Consultants and Jane, our trip organiser. From our first enquiries about a possible safari to Africa we received, both by telephone and email, a wealth of detailed information and suggestions to suit both our capabilities and our pockets. The whole trip was organised with an attention to detail that was meticulous and unerringly accurate. All our accommodation proved excellent, routes were clearly marked and sensible journey times were suggested. It was obvious that we were dealing with someone who had extensive personal experience of travel in the whole area and was prepared to go to considerable lengths to ensure that we had a wonderful and safe trip. Many thanks to you Jane for all your hard work on our behalf and for your never-failing courtesy and pleasant manner. You’re more than just a travel consultant to us and we would recommend both you and Safari Consultants, without reservation.
