Rwanda gorilla trek. Mr and Mrs Shayer.
We wanted to send you a huge thank you as we had the most incredible experience in Africa, with the Rwandan gorillas as a huge highlight!
It was a once in a lifetime adventure and it was certainly helped by the wonderful help, care and expertise from the ground staff – in particular our driver/guide.
All the hotels that we stayed in were of great quality and we would highly recommend them, along with the fabulous staff.
The itinerary that you planned and organised for us was fabulous and it was done in the right order too.
The Dian Fossey trek was amazing and we are thrilled that we did it. But I would like to let you know for your future clients, to be informed that you do need to have a very good level of fitness as it is a long steep trek, at a high altitude which doesn’t help with the difficulty.
The standout part for us both was obviously the gorillas and we would highly recommend this anyone that is interested in doing this type of adventure. The tour guides, porters and trackers were incredible and really helped in making this a unforgettable experience!
It was absolutely amazing and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and with your expertise in organising this wonderful trip and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

South Africa Garden Route and Safari. Mr & Mrs Baker.
We got back yesterday after an amazing trip.
You looked after us so well that we would certainly recommend you to our friends.
The accommodation exceeded our expectations and was wonderful without exception.
The safari was our highlight I think, and our guide Josh was great company and so knowledgeable.
All in all a great holiday.

Zimbabwe Safari. Ms Waddington
We had a wonderful holiday, thank you. Everything went according to plan and there were no problems whatsoever with any of the arrangements.
Without exception, everyone we met in Victoria Falls, Hwange and Mana Pools was friendly and helpful, and always happy to sit and chat between drives.
Particular highlights were the Elephant Express – what a fabulous experience and thank you for suggesting it as a means of getting to Hwange. A really wonderful way of spending a few hours – along with the food and drink, of course! We were fortunate enough to see two male lions on a number of occasions and also an afternoon spent in a hide by a waterhole watching elephant drinking and generally splashing around will never be forgotten.
The four days in Mana Pools were out of this world – I think it’s probably one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited and many a happy hour was spent gazing out at the Zambezi listening to the hippos! Another highlight there was the wild dog which we saw on two or three occasions.
To be honest, I didn’t have very high expectations of the food we would get at Mana Pools but it was fantastic. I have no idea how the chef created the various dishes using just a couple of gas rings in a tiny little area behind the main tent!
So, thank you again for all your suggestions in planning the itinerary – very much appreciated.

Cape Town, Safari and Beach. Mr&Mrs Moncur
It was an absolutely sensational holiday!
All accommodation etc was fantastic, transfers were all on time, safari experience plus Cape Town & Mauritius were all better than hoped for.
Thanks for your help in organising / supporting things.
It really was amazing.

Namibia and South Africa. Ms Davies
Thanks very much for planning the most amazing holiday for us. Each place we visited was amazing and surpassed our expectations.
We were sad to leave each location but then totally overwhelmed with the next place.
I couldn’t give you a highlight as each one of the places you selected for us was 5* in terms of comfort, location and the staff couldn’t do enough for us.
I honestly can’t believe the quality of the holiday in every aspect (to top it all off my boyfriend decided Namibia would be the perfect place to propose, which of course it was and I said yes).
My parents who have only really had holidays in Europe were blown away and they hope to plan another trip back soon.
They have showed all of their friends the itinerary you prepared (again a quality product not all tour operators produce) and will treasure it as a momento for years to come.
Once again, thank you for the precision organisation to pull this all together for us, for putting up with my ever changing requirements and for providing an unforgettable trip.
I would not hesitate to book our future African adventures with you and will recommend you to anyone and everyone.
In a nutshell we’d give Native Escapes 100 out of 10.
