Testimonials

Having specialised in travel to Africa since 1983, we are extremely proud and fortunate to have built up a wonderful customer base of repeat travellers, who also recommend our services to their friends, family and colleagues, or even fellow travellers they meet on safari. Our aim is for every holiday we arrange to be perfect for the people who undertake them. Listed below are some of the comments we have received from our customers. Please also visit the AITO (Association of Independent Tour Operators) feedback site to see reviews on our services and our clients’ experiences.

Fantastic is a word that barely describes the time we had. In fact, and we both agree, there isn’t a word in the English language that comes close to adequately describing our trip. Many thanks, Jane, for a job very well done.

Michele, this is the third holiday to Africa you have organised for us and they have all been great. We value the service and advice you give. We look forward to planning our next trip with you in the future.

Hi Rob, we got back from Kenya last weekend and wanted to say thank you for finding for Henry and myself such a perfect last minute holiday that exceeded all our expectations and was below our budget. I certainly couldn’t have arranged it myself and my best decision was having the sense to call you. Overall, it was an exceptional holiday.

Mary, many thanks for your e-mail and apologies at the delay in replying. We had a wonderful time! Sosian was my personal highlight of the trip. Everything was perfect. Christmas eve under the stars with Annabelle and Steve and their family, a Taittinger soaked x-mas lunch, then camel rides on Christmas day. What more could we ask for? The Mara was of course great but felt strangely busy after Sosian and quite wet! As with our previous trips with you I cannot say thank you enough for your organisation, personal service, and attention to detail.

On the way home we commented “How can we top that? Where can we go that what be such an enjoyable experience?” Everything went very smoothly. Your choice of camps in Kenya was ideal, each different & excellent in their own way, all provided very comfy accommodation & a good variety of food (possibly too much!). We want to thank you for putting such a splendid holiday together for us. Having only had a couple of conversations Jane managed to pitch the whole experience just right for us and we are very grateful. We are already looking longingly at Botswana … we know where our starting point will be.

Dear Michele, A very big THANK YOU for the amazing holiday in Kenya and Zanzibar. After receiving information from two other organisations, I was not happy and my instinct told me to look further afield and this was a decision that I shall be thankful for. You knew exactly what we were looking for and even with the short notice you came up with a perfect itinerary and provided every detail necessary. Your advice about tipping, clothing, luggage etc., was followed and paid dividends. I do not know how you managed it, but the amount of time at each Kicheche Camp and at Ras Nungwi and Stonetown was perfect. Not too little and not too much. What I was dreading the most was meetings and transfers as I have had bad experiences. There was no need for concern as everything went off without a hitch and we had the most wonderful people meet us and make sure we were taken care of. I think our biggest hassle was filling out Immigration cards on the aircraft. If you especially arranged for us to see every wildlife imagineable – then thank you. I don’t think we missed anything. My only (half-hearted) complaint was that the food and drinks was so superb I put on weight. Thank you Michele and everyone at Safari Consultants, We shall be back.

Dear Mary, How sad we are to be back but we cope by living on our memories of yet another wonderful holiday. Asha Cottage and the beach were without doubt a little bit of paradise. As you promised we were looked after as treasured guests and virtually family members. It truly is a wonderful place for those who just want to relax in peacde and quiet. As far as how you can improve your service – that is impossible! Everything works like clockwork exactly as you set out in our itinerary and everyone who looks after us is both efficient and friendly. We just can’t find anything to complain about. Thank you so much for everything and all the care you take and for keeping your finger constantly on the pulse. We hope to see you again before too long.

Dear Michele, thank you! We had the most fantastic time and really appreciate your wonderful help and organisation. Everything went according to your careful plans and exceeded our expectations. Your management of our expectations was perfect and everything lived up to them. Kicheche Bush camp was simply perfect for us – you really understood me well. The service was exceptional, very relaxed, but nothing too much trouble. Darren & Emma at Kicheche were excellent. I can also say they were fantastic with Oscar. I don’t know how many of Oscar’s photos and videos Darren sat through, but it was a lot! 🙂 I was glad I had waited until Oscar was 10 for this trip. Any younger & he would have found it hard going, but he loved it. As expected, the animals sightings were great. Charles, our guide, never tired of our questions and was never short of an answer. So all in all, a brilliant holiday. Thank you for all your work organising it for us. The speed with which you replied to emails, your reassurances, your ability to listen and understand what I was looking for were excellent. My expectations were high and I was not disappointed. If any of my friends are ever thinking of going on safari, I won’t recommend they use Safari Consultants – I will insist!

Hi Rob, today is our first day back to work and reality after our wonderful honeymoon. We had the best time of our lives and absolutely loved every second of it. We kept thinking it couldn’t get better and it did. All of the accommodations were superb and it was a great variety of venues. We were so enamored with our room at the Mosselberg! The safari was by far our favorite aspect of the trip. We are so glad we went with Savanna. Everyone was so knowledgeable and warm and the accommodations were spectacular. Spending 4 nights was perfect too, it left us wanting more, but it was enough time to see so many great things and get to know so many wonderful people. Thanks so much for all of your help and putting together such a memorable honeymoon. We will be sure to recommend others to you. Thanks again for making our honeymoon so very special.
