Christopher and Penny from Hope Valley travelled to Zambia and NamibiaHi Rob, may I thank you and the team, but you especially, for putting together such an excellent trip. It met, indeed it exceeded, all our expectations. Quite when we do the next one, I know not; perhaps not for a year or two but another we shall do and through you.Christopher and Penny from Hope Valley travelled to Zambia and Namibia

Richard and Jackie from London travelled to ZambiaDear Michele, our trip to South Luangwa National Park was hugely enjoyable and eventful; the season is considered to be two months ahead of what it should be with low waters levels in the rivers and some concern for later in the year. There was abundant wildlife with excellent sightings – in particular a leopard taking a live impala up a tree chased by 3 hyena, at least 182 crocodiles (I stopped counting) feeding on a dead hippo and (the highlight of the trip for me!) 32 ellies crossing the river. Many thanks for recommending Kaingo; it’s everything a safari camp should be.Richard and Jackie from London travelled to Zambia

Linda, Luc, Tania and Bianca from Canada travelled to KenyaHi Frances, the trip was simply beyond our already very high expectations….I now value the time you took to guide us to the 3 camps…they were each totally different from one another and each were an experience on its own! Tortilis was perfect, and there were lots of animals! Plus we mostly had very clear sky and beautiful sunsets with Kilimanjaro. Our guide was very experienced and we often got very close to various animals such as elephants and lions. We actually saw a Black Mamba which apparently they rarely see! The camp with the water hole in front always busy with animals was great. In Lewa, we enjoyed how different the camp was. A giraffe was often seen on site, the girls enjoyed horseback riding and we did a bush breakfast. The camp in the Masai Mara was totally different. The river with the hippos a few feet away and the noise of the water was a totally different environment! The Kenyan people were amazing! Thanks again!!Linda, Luc, Tania and Bianca from Canada travelled to Kenya

Martin and June from Staffordshire travelled to South Africa and NamibiaMay we thank you for a wonderful holiday which ended last week. All the arrangements were spot-on including travel pick-ups and transfers. Great planning by yourselves! Thank you also for your intervention when our planned homeward flight was cancelled at Windhoek, Air Namibia staff were hopeless but we made progress with your help and also from the brilliant Wilderness Safaris staff based at the airport. Without your combined efforts, we might still be there. Thanks again!Martin and June from Staffordshire travelled to South Africa and Namibia

David and Se Wah from Dubai travelled to KenyaHi Frances, it was a fantastic week; both accommodations were faultless and the game viewing was truly breath taking. The exclusivity of the experience both through the way we were spoilt in the resorts (e.g. dinner under the stars, vehicle & guide specifically for us) and during the game drives (rarely saw other vehicles) made it truly memorable. I would highly recommend each of the locations; Lewa Wilderness provided us a truly tranquil setting with amazing service to fully relax, while Kicheche Mara was a perfect location to immerse yourselves within the fantastic Mara. Thanks again.David and Se Wah from Dubai travelled to Kenya

Cath and Steve from Shrewsbury travelled to KenyaDear Michele, did the holiday live up to our expectations? And then some – it was more than fantastic. It really is the best holiday we have ever had. We enjoyed all the camps and Sonia & Andy made my birthday extra special with the teams traditional songs and a cake. We also watched a lion eat her zebra kill with sundowners on my actual birthday!! I think we have been very lucky first timers – walking safari in Laikipia and “came across” a rhino; we watched cheetah and Cubs eat their kill; saw Nabiki the cheetah and managed to see Fig the Leopard and cub on 3 occasions! Other highlights included lions mating, the marsh pride lions for hours with breakfast…. And then, on our final game drive, when I’d asked to see elephants, giraffe and anything else again – we saw a cheetah kill!!!! By the time we arrived at Diani, I was glad I’d asked for a beach bit, as was Steve! Kinondo Kwetu was amazing and we did manage to do the sacred forest, where it promptly poured down while we were in there. Auspicious according to our guide. And we were glad we went on to the village to see how people do manage to live and survived the coconut wine! Thank you so much Michele for putting together a holiday that is so memorable and enjoyable. And for all the extra touches for my birthday. We will be in touch for the next trip….Cath and Steve from Shrewsbury travelled to Kenya

Isabelle from Boston travelled to South AfricaThe Safari Consultants Team (specifically Frances and Josie whom I worked with) was simply outstanding. Their incredible level of knowledgeable, kindness, efficiency and accessibility was superior to none. Their degree of understanding of the various options and ability to describe the differences between lodge options and areas to consider was invaluable for a first time South Africa safari goer. To the Safari Consultants Team, THANK YOU for making our first Safari a memorable, amazing once in a life time experience, looking forward to planning the next one with you!Isabelle from Boston travelled to South Africa

Clive and Anne from Suffolk travelled to Kenya and SeychellesOur very first trip to Africa and we’re certain it will not be our last! Novice to safari experiences – we were pleased to find it ‘ticked every box’ surpassing all our expectations. The huge skyline, the quietness, being so close to wildlife – what a huge privilege it all was. The whole holiday moved smoothly and efficiently from camp to camp. Each camp had something different to offer with the varied landscapes and a superb variety of game. The rhino rich undulating plains of Ol Pejeta to the woodland, ravines and swamps of Lewa – where we saw our first Grevy’s zebra; to the huge open plains of the Masai Mara with oceans of waving savannah grass and enormous sky levels, so rich with game – it gave us our first sighting of leopard. Clive and I would like to thank you all at Safari Consultants for organising this amazing trip of a lifetime for us and ensuring that our experiences were diverse, rich and most wonderful in every aspect.Clive and Anne from Suffolk travelled to Kenya and Seychelles
