Hi Rob, we are back now and thoroughly enjoyed our trip and all you and your staff did to put this together. Your attention to detail and knowledge of the areas and matching with our interests all melded together to make a most memorable trip.

Hi Mary and Rob, we just wanted to thank you for all your help in organising our honeymoon. All of your recommendations were spot on! The logistics of all the transfers etc. were also seamless and we couldn't have been more relaxed. When we left Botswana we tried to think of anything at all that could be improved and we couldn't think of even the smallest thing. Constance Lemuria in the Seychelles was also much more than we expected and we absolutely loved it. Carana Beach Hotel is lovely, the private beach beautiful and we had excellent food there. Mason's travel were really good too and everything went very smoothly with them. In Botswana the safari was great - we felt like we saw a lot and even saw a large pack of wild dogs hunting in Shinde. We thought the staff at Ker and Downey were just phenomenal and would love to go again.

Hi Julia, thank you so much for your wonderful work planning my holiday, I had a fantastic time, so many really special experiences, and have definitely got the “bug”! The staff at all the camps were so attentive and the locations were perfect, and I really appreciated your, and your team’s help and responsiveness throughout. Many thanks
Simone from Surrey travelled to Botswana

April/May 2018

Dear Mary, we had a great time, thanks. The choice of different terrains in the Central Kalahari and the Lagoon worked well, having some different animals and birds. In one of the drives from Tao Pan, even the guide became excited at seeing a couple of elephants in the distance; apparently they do not come to the region often and these were the first to be seen in 2018. The guides in both camps were excellent and looked after us really well. Thank you for your advice and efforts. When we next have a safari holiday, we will certainly want to hear what you have to say about our ideas.

February 2018

Hello Frances, Rochelle and I are home. We had an absolutely fabulous trip. Our time in Botswana was so special. Everything about the safari was wonderful. We enjoyed both camps and found everything just terrific. The food was great, the staff were all number one in terms of service, helpfulness and general great attitude. We absolutely loved Bale and Gee, our tracker and guide at Kwara Camp. They are a great team. We saw an amazing amount of wild life and the landscape in the Delta was so gorgeous. Camp Kalahari was not as rich in the big animals but still had lots to offer and the food, the lodgings and the staff once again were all terrific. So thank you Frances for your assistance in making all this possible for us. I know we threw a lot at you all at the last minute and you were so patient and helpful. I hope I have the opportunity to ask for your services again one day soon. I certainly have fallen in love with being 'on safari'.

Morning Michele, just a quick email to say we are back, had a FANTASTIC time, so many different experiences and adventures ! - can’t believe it’s all over.
Helen from West Sussex & Dee from Hampshire travelled to Botswana, Zambia and Zanzibar

November 2017

Rob, I know we have spoken on the phone since we returned from Africa but it would be remiss of me not to write and thank you. I asked when we were planning this trip that I wanted an adventure and to create memories for my family and in particular my children. You did this and beyond, we have all loved it and the brief has been fulfilled and more. All 3 camps you chose were superb in their own individual ways and gave us such pleasure. The activities you recommended were brilliant with particular mention for Devils pool and the sleep out platform. We loved all the camps but particular mention for Kanana and in particular our guide Robbie who went above and beyond for our children and not only gave them a fabulous safari but nothing was too much trouble to make sure they had a great time. Rob thank you very much, you understood my brief 100%. Please keep in touch and I will start saving our pennies for next time.
Matt, Kath, Charlie and Jem from Lincolnshire travelled to Zambia and Botswana

October/November 2017

Dear Julia, we would just like to say we were especially impressed with our safari guide Frank who worked for Golden Africa Mobile Safari. He was the most knowledgeable guide we have ever known and had a genuine care for the environment. We were also pleased and impressed that all our travel arrangements and picks ups went so smoothly.

Thank you very much indeed for organising what was the perfect safari trip for us.
Betty and Steph from Essex travelled to Botswana

September 2017

Dear Michele, in short, the trip was simply fabulous and exceeded most (if not all) our expectations. Much of the itinerary was just perfect and it is difficult to envisage how it might have been bettered. We want to thank you for all your hard work in customising our trip and making this such a wonderful holiday. Thank you too for responding so quickly and effectively to our delayed outward flight and onward travel rearrangements. This all proceeded without a further hitch and we were able to quickly forget about the rather stressful start to the holiday. Once again, many thanks.
Neil and Sue from Surrey travelled to South Africa and Botswana

September 2017

Hi Michele, we had a wonderful time in Botswana; it was an exciting adventure for sure. Rather than just animal sightings (and there were tons) we were fortunate enough to be able to observe animals in their daily routine. Footsteps was my personal favourite camp - just 7 of them doing everything and making it all look so effortless and enjoyable. The walks were the best and just getting to camp from the airstrip was a real adventure. Loved it! Paddy particularly liked Selinda Explorers - especially the décor. Absolutely wonderful. It's amazing how many experiences can be packed into less than two weeks - it'll take many more than that to process it all. A lovely trip so thanks once again for your hard work to make it so for us.

Thanks again Michele for organising such a wonderful and memorable trip for us. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Ian and Paddy from Buckinghamshire travelled to South Africa, Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe

July 2017

Hi Frances. The main reason we decided on Safari Consultants was the attention to detail given in your responses to our quite thorough brief and the confidence given by the local knowledge of all of the options we were offered. The choice of Mashatu Tented Camp was perfect for us to experience the feeling of being in the bush without actually camping out. An amazing experience hearing the wildlife close by through the night. Watching the elephants at the waterhole whilst having dinner was magical. The setting and the people at Mashatu made for an authentic intimate Botswana experience. Kambaku again was perfect for what we were looking for. The thatched villas were luxurious and very well spread out over the grounds. A real sense of space. Of course Kambaku is a different experience to Mashatu, it is South Africa and not Botswana. The game drives were excellent. Some of the sundowner stops at Kambaku were stunning. The night skies at dusk were breath taking. In fact with the help of lions visiting over dinner, we saw the big five in the first afternoon and evening. What can we say about Victoria Falls. There is a very good reason it is one of the seven natural wonders of the world. To experience the power and beauty was very moving. Clive was brilliant and made this a memorable experience. The Zambezi sunset cruise was a marvellous end to what was a trip of a lifetime. The boat was excellent and staff brilliant and the sunset, unforgettable. With the benefit of hindsight would we have changed anything?.....No, and I think that says it all. So a very big thank you to you Frances and everybody at Safari Consultants and your African partners. It is quite remarkable that such a complex schedule went without a hitch. A compliment to all involved.
Brian and Diane from Hampshire travelled to Botswana, South Africa and Zimbabwe

June 2017

Hi Rob, thank you so much for organising a fabulous holiday for us. We loved every minute of it and it far exceeded all our expectations (which were already high!). There were so many highlights and we are currently ploughing through and editing approximately 3,000 photos so are reliving all the memories. The Victoria Falls were magnificent, in full spate and Ilala Lodge was lovely. We loved the Chobe river, and the birdlife was superb. We saw about 60 elephants drinking at Elephant Bay which was memorable. The 3 safari camps were awesome. In every case the standard of accommodation was amazing, the food delicious and nothing was too much trouble. Our favourite camp was Shinde - the atmosphere and friendliness almost moved us to tears. At each camp we saw lots and a great variety of animals and birds. A highlight was a pride of nine lions at Selinda which, after an abortive warthog hunt, decided to flop down in the shade of our vehicle. They were so close I could have reached out and touched them. You have now thoroughly converted us to safaris and we have Namibia on the high wishlist.
Pauline and Derrick from Surrey travelled to Zimbabwe, Namibia and Botswana

May/June 2017

Hi Michele, this is now the fourth time we have come to you with an outline of what we wanted to do. This time a focus on the Okavango Delta with a fully water based camp, a game based camp, a camp with mixed activities and a walking based camp. As previously, the itinerary you put together fully met the brief and we had a great holiday with experiences to remember. Many thanks once again for all the time and effort you put into this.
David and Dorothy from Hampshire travelled to Botswana

June 2017

Hi Frances, it was an amazing trip, a unique experience that I will remember for life. Thank you for the professionalism, effort and care you put on organising our safari. Looking forward to visiting Africa again.
Dimitris and friends from London travelled to Zimbabwe and Botswana

March/April 2017

Hi Frances, we are now back (only in body, not in soul) and we'd like to thank you for the loving care and effort you put into organising our trip. We all had the time of our lives! The animals, the sunsets, the warm people who looked after us, the landscapes and the adventures that took all of us in one way or another our of our comfort zones, will stay with us forever.
Elina and friends from London travelled to Zimbabwe and Botswana

March/April 2017

Rob, many thanks for organising a great trip for us. Pretty much everything worked like clockwork. Mashatu tented camp was very good. Excellently run with fantastic staff, very professional and friendly, food top notch too. Game viewing was still good despite the grass being high. We did see wild dogs on our first day. Leopards usually allude us too but our excellent guide Richard found 2 in three days for us. We loved the tents, large comfortable and well appointed with great bathrooms but our only criticism of the whole camp would be that there was no view / aspect. You were right about Tswalu, it was absolutely fabulous! Again guides can make or break the experience and we had an excellent guide Warren Pearson. Everything about Tswalu was top notch and you have now spoilt us for the future. Sadly no pangolin or aardvark but got very close to Hartmann's zebra, and the first brown hyena I have seen. Meerkats were fascinating and I could have sat with them all day. Many thanks again Rob, just loved it!
Caroline from Suffolk travelled to South Africa and Botswana

February/March 2017

Dear Frances, just to let you know that the trip went off without a hitch; it was a truly wonderful experience and will always be fondly remembered. The Letaka mobile safari was something of a highlight because our guide “Nkosi” was a true star. He was so passionate about the bush and all it has to offer. He was very considerate, a safe driver and had the most encyclopaedic knowledge of all the mammals and birds. He could answer every question going. He was also able to interpret the animal behaviour to track animals and find them. Quite outstanding. Our 7 days with him resulted in some emotional “goodbyes” when he saw us off from Xakanaxa airstrip for the finale at Vumbura Plains. That was a superlative end to the holiday and we agreed it was the best accommodation and “service” experience we have ever encountered anywhere in the world. Another highlight were the “Safari Brothers” – Grant and Brent Reed – turning up at Maun to greet us off our flight back from Vumbura. Rather beyond the call of duty but it was great to speak to them about our time in the Kalahari and the Moremi with Nkosi and how good the support team were led by Mousa the bush chef. Many thanks for putting together what will be remembered as a trip of a life time.

Dear Michele, you arranged a most amazing holiday for us, our two children, their spouses and five grandchildren to Cape Town, Gaborone and Madikwe. EVERYTHING was perfect, the transfers worked like clockwork, and you helped make our 50th Anniversary celebration a trip to remember forever. So a BIG THANK YOU - you did us proud.

Dear Frances, what an incredible trip! Thank you so much with helping us put together this trip of a lifetime. We will definitely be keeping another safari trip in mind for a future trip! Thank you again!
Cindy and Spencer from Connecticut travelled to Zimbabwe, Botswana and South Africa

October 2016

Hi Michele, I wanted you to know that the trip was fabulous and has now replaced Peru as my favourite trip. You guys clearly know what you are doing. Several people even mentioned what a good variety of locations we were seeing. At Selinda, we loved the variety of topography. Saw so much, including two wild dog kills in one day. Lots of people never see one. Gruesome, but incredibly interesting. Loved the camp, the people, the food, the personal hospitality. At Shinde the landscape was wetter and interesting, the food was good and staff very nice. Camp Kalahari we saw some great birds and new animals especially at night and we enjoyed the meerkats. Drinks, dinner and sleeping on the pans was magical.
Linnea from California travelled to Zimbabwe and Botswana

September 2016

Dear Michele, Botswana, as usual, lived up to all my hopes and expectations. All your arrangements, timings, connections, etc. worked out beautifully - thank you. It really was my dream holiday - I don't think I've woken up yet! The 3 camps were absolutely delightful - very different in their own ways and at all three camps, my guides were excellent. Very best wishes to you all at Safari Consultants, and again thank you for organising my trip this year.
Betty from Essex travelled to Botswana

Hi Michele, we're back in Hong Kong now and trying to get over jetlag. The trip was amazing, thank you so much for everything. The overall organisation, transfers, quality of camps, etc. were flawless. We're really lucky as we get to travel frequently, but this was our first trip to Africa and it didn't disappoint. It was also great to meet the two Safari Consultants ladies at Kanana. We will definitely use Safari Consultants again and I'm already working on Tim for the next trip!

Frances, great holiday. We particularly enjoyed the Tok Tokkie and Footsteps walking trips, but appreciated the diversity of the programme and would not have wished to change the route. Overall brilliant! Thank you.
Phillip and Katie from Essex travelled to Namibia and Botswana

September 2015

Hi Michele, many thanks for organizing us another great trip!, we have always wanted to see the Delta and it was great to see…we enjoyed the diversity of the trip and we saw and did a lot in the 2 weeks. We loved the team at Savute and the location of Kanana….and it was great to end at Waterberry Lodge where we saw the falls from both sides…We look forward to our next trip!
Gary and Kat from London travelled to Botswana and Zambia

September 2015

Hi Rob, we had a fantastic time - as a headline I would give Selinda a 5 out of 5 rating. Beautiful camp and experience enhanced by the boat ride from the boat station to camp past the hippos etc. Felt very close indeed to the wildlife - had baboons, elephants and hippos in/very close to camp. On the last morning we were sat having breakfast round the fire when a kudu crashed through 3 yards from us pursued by a pack of 16 wild dogs!! We saw the dogs twice, lions 4 times, leopard and lost count of the number of elephants. Guide OB was fantastic - very experienced. At Shinde our guide Bee was again very experienced and very good. Lovely Independence Day celebrations - staff charming and tried super hard. We did the mekoro excursions – a great experience. All the arrangements were superb. Everything worked incredibly well for which we thank you. Also, it was meant to be a real lifetime experience for Greg and it certainly was!!!! Already started thinking about next time - I'd love Botswana and Namibia together. Many many thanks for all the help you've given. I'm not pleased to be home though!!!!!
Nick and Greg from Leicester travelled to Botswana

September 2015

Dear Rob, I just wanted to say a massive thanks for delivering a great holiday - you fulfilled my brief perfectly, and exceeded all our expectations. All arrangements, transfers and accommodation were like clockwork, no concerns at all. We liked that Elephant Plains and Muchenje arranged for us to have the same guides throughout our stay, as this greatly enhances the relationships and communication. Elephant Plains was a great location, great food & great staff. Morné Fouche our guide was very professional - we loved the drives and game walks with him. Over 3 days we saw 7 different leopard, 4 different rhino and a big herd of buffalo, 800-1000 strong which Morné managed to park just ahead of, then they flowed all around the vehicle for 20-30 mins as they passed, unforgettable. Muchenje - great atmosphere, felt like home from home, fantastic location on the escarpment overlooking the floodplain. We enjoyed the full day out with boat trip, picnic lunch then a game drive back along the Chobe waterfront, with hundreds of elephant, buffalo, zebra & sable. We got a fantastic front row view of a lion hunt by a pride of 10 lions. Waterberry Lodge was a great end to the holiday - fantastic location and good food. We enjoyed the sunset cruise, fishing, hippos on the lawn and bird watching. So relaxing to just chill on the banks of the Zambezi. The visit to the Falls was great. We have great photos and great memories - thank you. We now have lots of ideas for return trips, and will not hesitate to contact you.

August/September 2015

We would like to thank you so much, especially Michele for all your advice and help. The arrangements were not the most straightforward but you had carried them out so that everything ran seamlessly. I did not want to return to the UK and can’t wait for our next visit. I will be starting to plan again with Michele as soon as I finish the laundry!! Thank you so much.
Christopher and Rosemary from Wiltshire travelled to South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Namibia

August 2015

Hi Mary, Many apologies for not contacting you to say a big thank you for organising the trip but I suspect we have all been caught in a Botswana bubble!!!! It was a great itinerary! The camps were all very different and enabled us to have a real insight into Botswana. It was ideal to end at Pelo Camp with a laid back and really remote environment having experienced the rather chi chi Duma Tau and the authentic Savuti Camp. The guides were solicitous and knowledgeable and the staff friendly and welcoming. The highlights.... The welcome and choirs at the camps, The fireside bars, The hot water bottles aka bush buddies, The superb setting for cocktails, The amazing array of wildlife flora and fauna. So as you can tell a great success. Many thanks.
Suzanne from London travelled to Botswana

August 2015

Hi Mary, I loved every minute of it, even though we had to get up at 5.30am every morning! The itinerary was fantastic – everywhere we went we were greeted by friendly staff who couldn’t do enough for us. It was full on, as we were moving every other day, but we soon got into the rhythm of it. Have to admit to being exhausted since I got back though! A real dream come true for me. Thank you.
Julie from Jersey travelled to Botswana

Hello Michele, it is safe to say all went very well indeed, another Michele triumph! Thanks as always for all you did to make it such a great trip. Look forward to speaking next week.
Gerry and Sarah from Buckinghamshire travelled to Botswana and Victoria Falls

June 2015

Hi Frances, we had the most amazing time, took the helicopter flight over the Victoria Falls, Awesome!! The best camp was Okuti Camp. The staff were amazing. The whole camp had the most wonderful atmosphere because they cared so most about everything. The guides were extremely knowledgeable & informative, especially our guide Solly who specialised in birds. We had the most splendid time, one we won't forget in a hurry.
Denise and Dennis from Wales travelled to Zambia and Botswana

June 2015

Hello Michele, we want to thank you for organising our extraordinary safari adventure in Southern Africa. Everything that we had planned worked seamlessly and efficiently in all three countries, including eleven airplanes (+helicopter), multiple lodges and hotels over nearly three weeks. We saw and experienced everything we could imagine for Africa and came home exhilarated (and healthy). A special delight were the staff at all the lodges in Botswana, who seemed so happy to meet with us, spend personal time with us, and treated us like honoured family guests. Our game viewing drives covered all manner of terrain and close up encounters with so many animals and birds in their natural surroundings, that we took over 900 photographs combined. The expert and knowledgeable guides soon became new friends. The food and accommodations were first class and individually special everywhere. We were busy the whole time, and the places you chose presented an exotic variety of experiences. Some additional comments that did not detract from our delightful safari: * Night game drives with searchlights were OK, but somehow seemed intrusive and not too productive. * Nights and predawn drives were indeed cold despite hot water bottles, lush bedcovers, and vehicle blankets so we were happy to be there in June not August. We came well prepared with warm clothes, scarves and gloves and needed them on highway game drives - we were surprised how cold those cottages with screens, Kanana and Okuti, were at night and early morning. The low temperature was 0 degrees Centigrade one morning and no higher than 10 degrees on other days. * Victoria falls was extraordinary but so full of mist that a later date would have been better (my error). The helicopter ride provided an expanded view, but seemed rather expensive. Again, we congratulate Safari Consultants, for a complex network of arrangements between camps and transport operations that works flawlessly without delays across countries, rivers, airports etc. We have recommended Safari consultants to all our friends here, and to our families in the UK.

Hello Rob, the standard of guiding was excellent; staff without fail were courteous, helpful and always smiling. We can highly recommend Safari Consultants in every respect. They are very professional and a credit to the travel industry. Nothing is too much trouble. Their aim is always to give their clients a perfect holiday/safari experience.
Roger and Gillian from Devon travelled to Botswana and Namibia

June 2015

Dear Rob, we had an amazing time, all of the places we stayed in were excellent and the order was just right. Selinda Camp was our favourite camp – the staff go out of their way to ensure you have everything you want. We also loved Footsteps Across the Delta; a peaceful and completely different experience to the rest. You were right that the animals weren't as plentiful as they were in Kenya but we still saw lots of them, even a leopard on one occasion. The bird life in Botswana is incredible too. Thanks again for a wonderful holiday.
Jill and Bernd from London travelled to Botswana and Zambia

May 2015

Dear Michele, we had a really great holiday and all went well.  Thanks for all the arrangements and accommodation recommendations. Thamakalane River Lodge is a great place for birding in their grounds. Letaka Safaris – Excellent. Olive Grove – Excellent, nice touches and great breakfast. Little Sossus Lodge – Excellent. Great accommodation with fantastic views from our front door.  Great food.  All very friendly.  Enjoyed the sundowner trip with lots of food and wine. The full day excursion to Sossusvlei was excellent and Pierre went out of his way to find the Desert Lark for us.  He was very good company and spent a lot of time showing us the area – a memorable day. Cornerstone Guesthouse - Excellent.  Very friendly and helpful. Accommodation huge and very clean, great breakfast.  One day not long enough. Brandberg White Lady Lodge - Friendly and excellent setting with beautiful desert gardens. Camp Kipwe - Excellent.  Our favourite place for its setting and design.  Food also excellent and Tafi was a great guide. We were lucky to see the desert elephants on our morning nature drive.  Erongo Wilderness Lodge - Excellent.  Good accommodation, great setting and views. Good birding and photo opportunities from the dining/terrace areas. Thanks again for everything.
Peter and Angela from Hertfordshire travelled to Botswana and Namibia

April 2015

Dear Rob, I just wanted to let you know that we had an excellent trip. Everyone really enjoyed the time spent with the guides spotting and watching a great variety of wildlife. Savannah was just what we needed to get our feet on the ground. The Savannah Suite was perfect and a really relaxing place. All of the staff working in the lodge were great and made us very welcome. What really made it though was the energy and enthusiasm of the guide (Kevin) and tracker (Julius). We saw leopard, lions plus cubs, elephants, rhino and buffalo and two different cheetah. Letaka was excellent - Lucas was a first class guide and made every effort to look after us whilst we stayed with him. Footsteps was good, the walks were great and we very much enjoyed being on foot again. This time we saw a lot of lions and a pair mating at very close quarters; zebra and impala everywhere. We also saw six male lions in one morning which was quite a surprise, a civet at night plus some lions very close to the bush dinner which kept our attention. OP and Noah guided us very well and the girls really enjoyed a slightly more advanced young explorers camp. Kanana was excellent - they made a real effort to look after us and we appreciated that as well as the warmth of the welcome. Thank you for arranging it all.

Another splendidly successful holiday planned with the friendly professionalism and expertise we know we shall receive from Safari Consultants. They are a truly outstanding company. This has been our sixth holiday with them and we would never even contemplate changing our alliance!
John and Jennifer from Berkshire travelled to Botswana

March 2015

Hi Michele, Fantastic wild dog sightings, glimpse of a sitatunga, kingfisher bashing a frog against the branch of a tree, 3 leopard sightings, lions every day. It was a great holiday and all your arrangements went very smoothly, a big thank you! Your arrangements are so great - even down to the selection of seats on the plane - they were perfect!
Katrine and her two sons Linus and Oscar travelled to the Okavango Delta, Botswana

December 2014

Dear Rob, no two trips to Botswana are ever the same but as usual we had many remarkable experiences covering birds, animals, reptiles and insects. All the arrangements went like clockwork. Letaka did us proud as usual. We were welcomed with much enthusiasm, especially by the cook Musa, whom we had been with several times before, and of course Disho. The whole mobile safari experience was as enjoyable as ever, the boys were most attentive and looked after us very thoughtfully. The food was excellent, varied and plentiful. Disho's enthusiastic guiding brought us many interesting sightings, most of the time with no other humans in sight. We enjoyed our stay at Kalahari Plains very much and hope to return one day. Grant was really in excellent form as usual and we had a great time bird watching with him. Several birds were new to us and we were pleased to demonstrate that we could still name some of the larks he had taught us to identify on our previous spell in the Kalahari. We thoroughly enjoyed our fifth safari in Botswana, everything went smoothly and we have great memories of the people we met, the wildlife encounters and behaviour. Thank you very much for all you did to make it such a success. We look forward to the sixth!
Gillian and Don from London travelled to the Okavango Delta and the Central Kalahari, Botswana

Hi Rob, thanks for organizing a great trip. Selinda Camp was amazing! Food was probably the best we have had from all the camps we stayed and the guides are good. Victoria Falls was spectacular. Thanks again!
Tommy and Annie from Singapore travelled to Botswana and Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

November 2014

Hi Rob, we had an amazing holiday and were completely blown away with Botswana again. All camps were amazing and unique, we loved Footsteps and the simplicity of it and the guides were great in all camps (Paul was a character at Footsteps!)
Stephen and Caron from London travelled to Botswana

November 2014

Hi Rob, We had a superb holiday, thank you. We're glad we started with Victoria Falls as were a bit tired at the end of the holiday and the low water did enable is to get a better view. We managed to see leopards for the first time, we witnessed a lion kill and we managed to catch roan, sable, genet, civet and a host of birds too numerous to mention. The guides were excellent at all of the camps and the camp crew / support staff were all good and everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. Food was very good in all the camps and the rooms were fine - we wish all tents were as luxurious. Would we go on this type of trip again. Yes. Would we consider using Safari Consultants? Yes.
