Dear Michele, we have just returned from the best family holiday ever. I just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU for all you did to make this special trip truly memorable. From my initial email enquiry last February to the immediate response and interest you showed, the whole way through the planning of the itinerary, you were first class. You appreciated the budget we had and the quality of the accommodation we wanted catering perfectly for my family. Your time patience and advice was greatly appreciated and your service exemplary. Even when we made some slight changes to our plans or asked questions this was never a problem and sorted. I am so appreciative of all you did to make this a truly special holiday (and have already praised and highly recommended you and Safari Consultants to family and friends!). Thank you so much.

Hi Michele, just thought I would say thank you for organising such an amazing trip. We have had a fantastic time and your choice of camps, transfer operators and support services was excellent. All the arrangements went to plan and everyone was ready, on time and prepared for our arrivals and transfers. I think you made an excellent selection of different camps with very diverse habitats and wildlife at each, the contrasts between all were significant and greatly enhanced the experience we had. In particular I think that the Offbeat Mara Camp is currently being very well run. Their flexibility, attention to detail and willingness to help in all situations was very commendable. Overall this has been a truly outstanding adventure and I would like to say that you and your team created the perfect trip for our requirements. I think that you are without doubt the very best Travel Operator I have worked with and that you really have gone the extra mile in making our trip such a success, your attention to detail and information all helped add greatly to the experience.

Dear Rob, no two trips to Botswana are ever the same but as usual we had many remarkable experiences covering birds, animals, reptiles and insects. All the arrangements went like clockwork. Letaka did us proud as usual. We were welcomed with much enthusiasm, especially by the cook Musa, whom we had been with several times before, and of course Disho. The whole mobile safari experience was as enjoyable as ever, the boys were most attentive and looked after us very thoughtfully. The food was excellent, varied and plentiful. Disho’s enthusiastic guiding brought us many interesting sightings, most of the time with no other humans in sight. We enjoyed our stay at Kalahari Plains very much and hope to return one day. Grant was really in excellent form as usual and we had a great time bird watching with him. Several birds were new to us and we were pleased to demonstrate that we could still name some of the larks he had taught us to identify on our previous spell in the Kalahari. We thoroughly enjoyed our fifth safari in Botswana, everything went smoothly and we have great memories of the people we met, the wildlife encounters and behaviour. Thank you very much for all you did to make it such a success. We look forward to the sixth!

Hi Rob, thanks for organizing a great trip. Selinda Camp was amazing! Food was probably the best we have had from all the camps we stayed and the guides are good. Victoria Falls was spectacular. Thanks again!

Hi Rob, we had an amazing holiday and were completely blown away with Botswana again. All camps were amazing and unique, we loved Footsteps and the simplicity of it and the guides were great in all camps (Paul was a character at Footsteps!)

Dear Mary, we can’t thank you enough for giving us such a great experience. All your arrangements were perfect – and were exactly what we wanted. Rekero, as ever, was amazing. Such a brilliant time. We even saw the Big Five in one day – again! Kiangazi was very good too. We loved the lake, so peaceful, so many birds and everyone was very hospitable. It was good to relax a bit after all that early rising. The beach at the Z-Hotel is wonderful and the sea just gorgeous. We had a fabulous time and we thank you most sincerely for making it all happen.

Dear Rob, We had a really fantastic trip. Our only regret is that there will never be another “first time” for this type of trip. Everything worked like clockwork. The accommodation was amazing, the guides like-wise, pick ups all on time, and the general experience down to watching thunder and lightening on the edge of the Serengeti was amazing. Thank you for such a terrific holiday.

Hi Rob, We had a superb holiday, thank you. We’re glad we started with Victoria Falls as were a bit tired at the end of the holiday and the low water did enable is to get a better view. We managed to see leopards for the first time, we witnessed a lion kill and we managed to catch roan, sable, genet, civet and a host of birds too numerous to mention. The guides were excellent at all of the camps and the camp crew / support staff were all good and everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. Food was very good in all the camps and the rooms were fine – we wish all tents were as luxurious. Would we go on this type of trip again. Yes. Would we consider using Safari Consultants? Yes.

Dear Rob, we had a wonderful holiday. Without exception, we saw some great game in the safari areas and our trip to Livingstone and Cape Town were also most enjoyable. All our transfers went well, flights and representatives all good. Gamewise, we saw it all. From leopards (up a tree having it’s lunch), cheetahs, elephants of all ages and sizes, rhino, giraffe, wild dogs (including a brilliant chase ending in a kill), everything. The zebra crossing was mesmerising and there were six lost to crocs. Two wildebeest crossings and lots of lions and cubs. Thanks for organising us another great memory.
