Roger and Susan from Berkshire travelled to TanzaniaHi Rob, I just wanted to thank you for organising yet another quite magical trip. Mahale was just amazing with our eclectic bunch of fellow explorers, we hiked for 4 to 5 hours to see the chimps through the mountains – how richly rewarding with fabulous sightings. Ruaha was a wonderful true bush experience being the only guests in camp!! how did you plan that? and the blissful and unforgettable Sand Rivers, where, for the first time we saw a pack of 21 wild dogs and had 4 lions asleep under our jeep. Africa is so much in our souls now. Thank you so much.Roger and Susan from Berkshire travelled to Tanzania

Rob and Amnah from Lancashire travelled to KenyaHi Joe, the trip we had was amazing. Everything went smoothly. Accommodation was great and the food was superb. The people who ran the camps were excellent. Our guide Frances was exceptional. He was knowledgeable and calm. Ending the trip at The Emakoko and Nairobi National Park was great since we got to complete the “ the big five” with the Rhino’s. It seems our best pictures were of the Leopard and Aardwolf since they are elusive. Will enter your photo competition soon.Rob and Amnah from Lancashire travelled to Kenya

Luke and Caroline from Berkshire travelled to Kenya & TanzaniaHi Rob, Caroline and I would like to thank you for organising the most wonderful trip that exceeded all expectations for our silver wedding anniversary holiday. In the Serengeti we saw a crossing of Wildebeest across the Mara river and crocs taking their share. We were lucky enough to see all the big cats – Lions, Leopards, Cheetahs as well as plenty of Elephants, Giraffes, Hippos, Buffalo, Hyena, Zebra, Ostrich, Baboon, Bat eared foxes, plus many more. In short, fantastic and we loved the Kirurumu North camp (once we got used to the Zebra and Wildebeest roaming through camp!). In Ruaha we saw several prides of lions, cheetahs climbing trees, jackals, greater and lesser Kudu and an Eagle owl . It was interesting to see the elephants digging for water in the sand river and the Mwagusi camp team organised a day of private guiding followed by a wonderful champagne and cake sundowner on the actual day of our anniversary which was great. In Selous we had Elephants, Hippos, Bushbabies and Genet Cats in camp (the last two joining us on our dinner table!). We spent time with a family of wild dogs (sightings are not frequent we understand) and saw several Lions (including one up a tree with his kill below!). We also saw many birds including eagles, bee-eaters, pelicans, storks and a swarm of killer bees! Selous Impala organised a lovely champagne and nibbles sundowner at the end of our afternoon river safari followed by an anniversary bush dinner at camp complete with our own fire! On Mafia we swam with whale sharks, snorkelled over excellent coral in the marine park with lion fish, moray eels and many others. Thanks again to you and the team for a great job!Luke and Caroline from Berkshire travelled to Kenya & Tanzania

Ivor and Anita from Staffordshire travelled to KenyaHi Frances, what can we say about the holiday other than it was better than either Anita and I expected; it was truly a holiday of a lifetime. After deciding at the age of 10 and waiting 50 years for the opportunity it surpassed our expectations! The camps you recommended were perfect, the guys running the camps the staff were all superb and the guides were unbelievable with their knowledge and enthusiasm. Nothing was too much trouble. The accommodation was a dream, the food simply amazing and the experience of the animals left us lost for words. The walking experience was one of the greatest experiences of our lives and how well we were looked after and we saw a Leopard, yes a Leopard whilst we were walking – even the guides were blown away by that. One of the best experiences of the safari was simply being wrapped up in ponchos with a mug of hot chocolate, in complete darkness looking at the vast array of stars and just listening to the night! Frances, we can’t thank you enough; you really listened to us and every detail was spot on, we could not find fault with anything.Ivor and Anita from Staffordshire travelled to Kenya

Sharon from California travelled to South Africa & BotswanaHi Mary, I’m composing this on the plane home from Johannesburg, while memories are clear. In sum, everything went swimmingly. Not one hitch in the gittalong; every transfer was in place when I arrived, every hotel had the reservation as planned, every camp was ready and all flights were on time. Suffice to say, they were all marvelous, and I had some incredible, once in a lifetime sightings.Sharon from California travelled to South Africa & Botswana
