Richard and Sue from Leicestershire travelled to KenyaHi Mary, let me begin by repeating that we had a thoroughly enjoyable trip, nicely balanced between the two venues and made complete by the warm welcome of Kenya people. Certainly the safari exceeded our expectations both in quality of the facilities and the sheer number of animals we saw.Richard and Sue from Leicestershire travelled to Kenya

Gerard, Virginia, Lauren, Oliver & Natalie from Australia travelled to South Africa and ZambiaHi Rob, just writing to say thank you for once again organising a fantastic African adventure for our family. At Kakuli Bush camp we were met by the very happy and friendly manager and staff. The camp was great. We loved the remoteness, the family tent/chalet, the peacefulness, the walking and the interaction with staff. The fun really began on our first night drive and didn’t stop for our entire stay – leopard vs baboon, the noise of the baboons was deafening and watching them chase the leopard was incredible. The leopard won eventually. We saw two different packs of wild dog (one lot happily munching away on their kill), leopards galore, lions, a huge buffalo herd, giraffe, zebra, hyena, elephant and the list goes on. We all absolutely loved this camp, the staff, the food and especially Julius and Kamisa who were not only great guides but wonderful company. Although sad to leave Kakuli we were looking forward to different adventures at Chongwe River Camp in the Lower Zambezi NP. You were right about the flight in – the sight of the massive Zambezi River was breathtaking. The Albida suite was roomy, private and had a great outlook onto the Zambezi River. The sunset cruise was lovely and started with a sighting of several young male lions lying in the sun on the high river bank. The canoe trip was another outstanding highlight – so peaceful despite the large crocs on the banks and hippos in the water. We enjoyed our stay here very much but found it a bit more “business like” than the more relaxed Kakuli. Thanks again for all your help and advice. I don’t think I’m done with Africa yet so look forward to organising another great trip in the future.Gerard, Virginia, Lauren, Oliver & Natalie from Australia travelled to South Africa and Zambia

Adele and Bethany from Peterborough travelled to KenyaDear Mary, the whole experience from beginning to end was superb. The Mara was simply spectacular and was enhanced by “Safari Consultants” attention to detail in sourcing the perfect lodge, with staff falling over themselves to ensure we had the best holiday. First encounter of your company was speaking at length with Mary, providing my daughter and myself with the most suitable package – perfectly achieved! The communication and information sent out by post was first class – putting us at ease. All transfers worked brilliantly and looked after most welcoming by ‘Jackson’ of Benroso Safaris. The lodge was in a perfect location with animals freely wandering through – most exciting! Richard, our game drive guide was superb – friendly, informative and tried his hardest to ensure we were able to see as many different animals as possible. The rooms were presented beautifully – home from home! The food as excellent and being pescatarian caused no problem at all – all meals were expertly created and looking at all guests, always clean plates returning. Hospitality = 110%!! Pairing us with Eloise and her husband Joe was great – sharing our experiences each day was lovely. My first visit to Africa – our experience was truly magnificent – I’ve started saving for my next!! Huge Thanks.Adele and Bethany from Peterborough travelled to Kenya

Tero and Kati from Finland travelled to South Luangwa, ZambiaDear Michele, I and Tero want to thank you and the whole team for an unforgettable holiday in South Luangwa. It met all our expectations, and more. There is absolutely nothing to complain about. You knew exactly what we would like. The accommodation was superb. We enjoyed the drives very much, and had so many fantastic sightings. Walking is so great! You see, hear and smell so many different things (as you well know). The guides were excellent, and it is absolutely a good arrangement to have the same ranger the whole time. As for the wildlife, I think we saw everything that can be expected. I can imagine the number of animals you see is greater later in the season, but we don´t feel like we missing anything. The exciting scenes easily make up for the number of animals. We saw several leopards, more than ever before. Saw dogs several times as well, both from a car and on foot (also killing a bushbuck in the galley right in front of our chalet at Mwamba; the scene we could see in the full moon light). A porcupine, a serval, and seven out of nine mongooses they have in SL. First goliath heron and giant kingfisher, too. Thank you again. We will certainly contact you, when it is time for the next trip to Africa.Tero and Kati from Finland travelled to South Luangwa, Zambia

Amit and Sarah from London travelled on honeymoon to Botswana, South Africa & SeychellesHi 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.Amit and Sarah from London travelled on honeymoon to Botswana, South Africa & Seychelles

Paul and Denny from Surrey travelled to NamibiaDear Rob, a personal message to thank you sincerely for the spectacular holiday you arranged for Denny and me in Namibia. Every excellent detail from the camps, the accommodation, the food, the game drives, the scenery, the flights, the timing of the year and the variety of different areas could only have come from a Company such as yours with all your experience because they were all superb. We had a fabulous time and quite frankly didn’t really want to come home! Thanks for your expertise and logistical brilliance.Paul and Denny from Surrey travelled to Namibia
