David and Terry travelled to KenyaDear Bill and Mary, well we returned safely from another trip to Africa thanks to our good friends at Safari Consultants. As for the trip itself we can only say thank you for always knowing our needs. I was not expecting too much game at Laikipia and were we surprised. Besides the joy of seeing Andy and Sonja again the game viewing was excellent. We saw a Cheetah kill 2 baby Warthogs, which was a bit unsettling for Terry but it was all part of nature. We even saw a small pack of Wild Dogs on hunt early one evening. That is the only time we have actually seen these dogs hunting. Amazing animals. Unexpectedly Mara North was quite green and the game viewing was over the top. Here we saw the Wildebeest crossing the Mara back into Tanzania. Quite a sight. One became dinner for a lion and another for a Crocodile. At your request Patrick met us at Mara Camp and was our personal guide for both Mara and Bush Camps. He was terrific and we’d like management to know that. Bush Camp was exactly as we remembered. We are also pleased to report that several other guests mentioned they booked their Safari through Safari Consultants and had only good things to say about your attention to detail and concern for your clients. What more can I add about how pleased we are that we found you in Zimbabwe in 1995? We are already saving for our next trip and expect to bring another couple with us. Thank you again.David and Terry travelled to Kenya

Howard and Kate travelled on honeymoon to MadagascarBoth Kate and I had an absolutely fabulous time in Madagascar. What an amazing country, not only in terms of the flora and fauna (which are exceptional) but also in richness of the culture, countryside and the people. The excellence of our holiday I know was down in no small part to the work that you and your team put in to tailoring the trip to our requirements.Howard and Kate travelled on honeymoon to Madagascar

John and Renate travelled to Zambia and MalawiDear Bill, the trip to Zambia and Malawi was excellent, and we were extremely pleased with the quality of the locations in Malawi. Mkulumadze Lodge is going to be one of the great attractions in the coming years. We thought it was terrific, and with the addition of predators it will become an absolute must. Well done and many thanks. We look forward to our next trip.John and Renate travelled to Zambia and Malawi

David and Vee travelled to Zambia, Botswana and NamibiaDear Rob, our recent holiday to Zambia, Botswana and Namibia certainly lived up to expectations – it is fair to say that we do not think it could have been bettered and much of this is down to how well you interpreted our requirements and the large amount of time you spent refining these with us. The game/bird viewing was excellent and we were delighted with the range and variety of different experiences we encountered. Thank you again for everything you did to make this holiday such as special experience for us.David and Vee travelled to Zambia, Botswana and Namibia

Austin and Di travelled through Rwanda and KenyaDear Bill, this has to be the best trip yet, wonderful sightings everywhere we went. After the gorillas we feared the rest might be a bit of an anti-climax, but it was nothing of the sort: Chimps, Colobus, Blue Monkey and Blue Turaco in Nyungwe, and Rwanda is a beautiful country. Then in Kenya Lewa gave us lion, leopard, cheetah, rhino and many others including lots of birds; Walking Wild with Kitonga was real walking where we saw so much and had a very close encounter with a family of white rhino. Kicheche gave us cats again plus serval, elephant, hippos, crocs and a great range of antelope. Thanks for all your effort in putting the trip together, faultless as ever.Austin and Di travelled through Rwanda and Kenya

Dorrit and Barbara travelled to south and north Tanzania, as well as to Kenya's Rift Valley and Masai MaraDear Rob, we simply had the most fantastic time. Thank you. The birding was excellent. Wildlife sightings far exceeded our expectations. We even saw 4000 wildebeest cross the Mara complete with crocodiles and lions picking them off! It left us breathless. At Mdonya we saw lion, cheetah and leopard before lunch one day! We have some fantastic photographs. Met other clients of yours at Kicheche who were just as happy with you as we are. We had the time of our lives and hope to return to some places…..thanks for all your organisation which was FAULTLESS.Dorrit and Barbara travelled to south and north Tanzania, as well as to Kenya's Rift Valley and Masai Mara
