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

Nick, Nicola, Isla & Louisa from Bristol travelled to ZambiaHi Rob, the trip was great. Old Mondoro was a first class outfit. The guides were great. Marshall was really interesting and knew his stuff. James was excellent as well and worked hard for us. Samora was an eagle-eyed spotter. We saw lots. The camp was perfect – very open indeed. Might spook some but we loved it. Just a case of sitting very still and enjoying the relaxed ellies, warthog, monkeys and impala. One afternoon five elephants came to the inlet – amazing! Camp team was great and food perfect. Michelle and Reon looked after us very well indeed. We were sad to leave and would return in a shot. Tafika was a bit more subdued. The weather was weird – very windy and overcast. It seemed to put everything down so from time to time the South Luangwa National Park seemed empty. However we really enjoyed the walking and our two nights on the trail. Chikoko Tree Camp was fab. We really enjoyed Crocodile Camp as well. Patson and James were great chefs and we ate like kings! We really enjoyed visiting both places. We will be back for more.Nick, Nicola, Isla & Louisa from Bristol travelled to Zambia
