John and Sophia from London travelled to KenyaHi Michele, another really wonderful trip and great contrast to the ‘Pangolin’ one. Much more ‘classic’ sightings, but the quality of the sighting was amazing!John and Sophia from London travelled to Kenya

Christopher and Kathryn from Hampshire travelled to KenyaDear Rob, we have just returned from Kenya having had a wonderful time. The choice of accommodation worked really well in combination, each being different with varying terrain and wildlife. Lewa House was an excellent first stop and felt very much like being a house guest on a private estate (which effectively we were!). Sophie and Callum are great hosts and the game viewing excellent. It was great to see the abundant Rhino populations including a two week old new addition. Saruni Samburu was a slightly different experience as you had said. The views from our room were truly spectacular with Rock Hyrax often only a few feet away. Kicheche Bush Camp was different again. The big cat viewing was particularly excellent. Highlights were a pride of fifteen lions walking past us in the early morning light, a cheetah with three playful cubs and a leopard up a tree in a typical pose. We saw a lion bring down a zebra and lions on kills having stand offs with hyenas, jackals and vultures. The food and guides were great in all three locations. Thanks very much for advising us and organising such a great trip. It is only a matter of time before we start thinking about the next one.Christopher and Kathryn from Hampshire travelled to Kenya

Peter and Anne from Cambridgeshire travelled to UgandaRob, just a brief note to say a huge thank you for organising such a fantastic trip to Uganda for us. Everything was brilliant and the mountain gorilla trekking experience is one that will live with us both for the rest of our lives – amazing! Hassan was a fantastic guide and friend – and everyone seemed to know him wherever we went. His birding knowledge is sensational and we racked up 311 species during the trip but missed out on the Chocolate Kingfisher in the Royal Mile and the Shoebill in the Delta but did get some crackers…..Scenery everywhere was simply breath-taking – including the crater lakes; and of course Murchison Falls and the Nile. We saw an incredible array of primates including the chimps in Kibale and a L’Hoest’s monkey sitting on our bed in Buhoma; a lone gorilla crossing the road in front of us while we were birding in front of the lodge in Buhoma; plus a close encounter with a three metre long spitting cobra in Bigodi Swamp. Lodges and locations all so different that it is almost impossible to compare – however, the Masindi Hotel was interesting! Thanks again and look forward to our next African odyssey…..you guys have delivered yet again….!Peter and Anne from Cambridgeshire travelled to Uganda

John and Diane from Iowa travelled to Zambia and BotswanaFrances, just a short note to say we had a wonderful time in Zambia, at the Falls, and in Botswana at all the camps. We saw far more wildlife in natural situations than we expected. In fact one of the experienced trackers at Lebala said we saw things between lions and cheetah that he had never seen in all his experiences! I took about 2400 pictures and have hundreds that are fantastic. Most importantly, the logistics, the itinerary, the level of service at the camps were all great…your planning was excellent! Thanks for planning a great trip for us!John and Diane from Iowa travelled to Zambia and Botswana

Kate, Andrew and Lexie from Kent travelled to Zambia and South AfricaHello Frances, thank you so much for putting together the itinerary for our fabulous trip to Zambia and South Africa. It was all marvelous. Standout highlights were Waterberry, Kambaku and Grootbos but it was all great. It’s hard when you’ve already had one wonderful safari holiday to even match or beat that first experience but Kambaku River Sands was amazing and, yes, I did get to see my leopard, up a tree with her impala dinner while a lone hyena circled beneath. We saw the big five but also a mature rock python, hyena pups, one only a few days old, a giraffe suckling and the elephants drinking from the swimming pool.  Only the Zimbabwean elephants we saw from the sunset cruise on the banks of the Zambezi could match that. We were lucky with the weather in Cape Town and spent the day at the Kirstenbosch Gardens, Camps Bay and the Waterfront. Grootbos was absolutely fantastic and Lexie enjoyed 3 rides on her own with one of the guides. Many thanks for all your recommendations and help. We hope to plan another trip sometime.Kate, Andrew and Lexie from Kent travelled to Zambia and South Africa

Jonathan, Elizabeth, Sam & Eleanor from Hertfordshire travelled to South AfricaHi Rob, got back this morning after a wonderful week at the Bush House. They were all so lovely and welcoming to us. Met Sue and Gordon this time – they’re great – couldn’t have been more helpful and accommodating. Lovely people. We managed to nail leopard action, so really happy about that! Also saw a meet and greet with lioness and her four cubs after a night out hunting which was pretty special and managed to see the wild dogs again (with pups). All round a wonderful week. The kids loved it again and are already begging to go back! In between game drives, it was so relaxing and the bush house just feels like home.Jonathan, Elizabeth, Sam & Eleanor from Hertfordshire travelled to South Africa

William, Rosie, Charles, Daniel and Isabella from Hampshire travelled to KenyaDear Julia, thanks so much for a truly fabulous holiday. We really could not have asked for more. Both venues were amazing – the luxury and quality of service and care truly outstanding. The people we met and the warmth of their welcome will remain with us for as long as the fantastic things we saw and experienced in both the venues we holidayed in. Thanks for putting together an itinerary that really met our needs and worked so well for us as a family. And what also made it so special was how smooth and seamless all the pick-ups, transfers, etc. went. It meant we did not have to worry or think about logistics for the whole trip. Fabulous. Holiday of a lifetime – many thanks.William, Rosie, Charles, Daniel and Isabella from Hampshire travelled to Kenya
