Botswana and Zimbabwe. Mr & Mrs Schlesinger
We returned from Africa yesterday and want to thank you for setting up an awesome trip and an unforgettable birthday for my wife. Although the trip was a large investment, I can’t imagine getting a better experience regardless of the price. I’ll give credit to your relationships with the lodges for that. We met some very experienced Africa visitors (up to 27 times!) and they all agreed our trip was very well arranged.
Botswana was a perfect start for our safari experience. The short scenic flight from Maun, the singing and dancing welcome by the staff, and the tents over water were all magnificent. Since it was out first stop, we marveled over each impala, elephant and hippo. We hated to leave and couldn’t imagine how anything could get better.
In Zimbabwe our arrival experience was absolutely magical. A comfortable pickup time from Vic Falls, an interesting 2-3 hours through the countryside, and our arrival at the Dete station where our private Elephant Express awaited and then we rolled 2-3 hours down the straight track. They even let Kathryn drive for a while. On our final day, we visited a local school and picked up a full load of kids on the way. We all agreed this was was the best experience of our trip. Sibs honking the horn of our safari truck and uniformed school kids rushing the truck from all directions. We piled in at least 30 kids and they immediately started to sing a variety of their favorite songs all the way to school. Needless to say, we hated to leave. I will encourage everyone to include Zimbabwe on their Africa trip.
You’ll notice I didn’t talk much about the animals we saw. They were all great but what made this trip special was the people and the experience they created for us. I’ve never seen my wife so happy and our friend Pat was blown away as well. Thank you for putting together the perfect trip for us.

Self-Drive South Africa – Mr & Mrs Mulholland
We had a wonderful time in South Africa.
Your organisation of everything ensured it all went smoothly. Thank you for all the work you did to put together such a great holiday. The guest houses in particular were superb. I would name the Robertson small hotel, the Majeka and Last Word as particularly outstanding.
Thank you again. We would certainly use your services again.

Tailor-Made South Africa, Mr & Mrs Langthorn
We both would like to say a big thank you for arranging the most diverse holiday that we have ever had.
In Cape Town, The Table Bay Hotel was 5 star luxury. In complete contrast, Grand Dedale was set in the Winelands in the middle of nowhere. We both had the most relaxing time and were very happy doing nothing.
Grootbos Forest Lodge was by far the most interesting stay of the holiday, The lodge itself was set in a most beautiful location and our room was superb, we managed to complete most of the activities they had to offer in the short time we were there. Staff and facilities were outstanding.
Overall a great holiday experience that will always be remembered.

Botswana Safari. Mr & Mrs Ford
Our trip worked very well in almost all instances. When we alighted at Jo’berg a Native Escape rep was waiting and helped us with everything we needed to do to get our flight to Maun.
All the camps in their own way were delightful. Staff in all cases were attentive, guides were all good and accommodation excellent.In di
fferent ways all the games drives were good, some more interesting than others but we are experienced enough to expect that. The cats in Duba were stunning and I took over 1000 photos!
If we are able to do another safari in the future we will certainly come back to you first. Thanks for all your excellent planning.

Explore Namibia. Ms Vihervaara
We loved Namibia! I think the itinerary was well planned, two nights in most places gave time to rest as well. I’d like to also thank you for your help and suggestions for our trip. We both are super happy about our trip and looking forward to return to Namibia someday in the future.
