An excellent trip, great lodges, great animal viewing, great people, but just not long enough! We will be back.

May we thank you for a wonderful holiday which ended last week. All the arrangements were spot-on including travel pick-ups and transfers. Great planning by yourselves! Thank you also for your intervention when our planned homeward flight was cancelled at Windhoek, Air Namibia staff were hopeless but we made progress with your help and also from the brilliant Wilderness Safaris staff based at the airport. Without your combined efforts, we might still be there. Thanks again!

Hi Frances, it was a fantastic week; both accommodations were faultless and the game viewing was truly breath taking. The exclusivity of the experience both through the way we were spoilt in the resorts (e.g. dinner under the stars, vehicle & guide specifically for us) and during the game drives (rarely saw other vehicles) made it truly memorable. I would highly recommend each of the locations; Lewa Wilderness provided us a truly tranquil setting with amazing service to fully relax, while Kicheche Mara was a perfect location to immerse yourselves within the fantastic Mara. Thanks again.

Dear Michele, did the holiday live up to our expectations? And then some – it was more than fantastic. It really is the best holiday we have ever had. We enjoyed all the camps and Sonia & Andy made my birthday extra special with the teams traditional songs and a cake. We also watched a lion eat her zebra kill with sundowners on my actual birthday!! I think we have been very lucky first timers – walking safari in Laikipia and “came across” a rhino; we watched cheetah and Cubs eat their kill; saw Nabiki the cheetah and managed to see Fig the Leopard and cub on 3 occasions! Other highlights included lions mating, the marsh pride lions for hours with breakfast…. And then, on our final game drive, when I’d asked to see elephants, giraffe and anything else again – we saw a cheetah kill!!!! By the time we arrived at Diani, I was glad I’d asked for a beach bit, as was Steve! Kinondo Kwetu was amazing and we did manage to do the sacred forest, where it promptly poured down while we were in there. Auspicious according to our guide. And we were glad we went on to the village to see how people do manage to live and survived the coconut wine! Thank you so much Michele for putting together a holiday that is so memorable and enjoyable. And for all the extra touches for my birthday. We will be in touch for the next trip….

The Safari Consultants Team (specifically Frances and Josie whom I worked with) was simply outstanding. Their incredible level of knowledgeable, kindness, efficiency and accessibility was superior to none. Their degree of understanding of the various options and ability to describe the differences between lodge options and areas to consider was invaluable for a first time South Africa safari goer. To the Safari Consultants Team, THANK YOU for making our first Safari a memorable, amazing once in a life time experience, looking forward to planning the next one with you!

Isabelle from Boston travelled to South Africa

Our very first trip to Africa and we’re certain it will not be our last! Novice to safari experiences – we were pleased to find it ‘ticked every box’ surpassing all our expectations. The huge skyline, the quietness, being so close to wildlife – what a huge privilege it all was. The whole holiday moved smoothly and efficiently from camp to camp. Each camp had something different to offer with the varied landscapes and a superb variety of game. The rhino rich undulating plains of Ol Pejeta to the woodland, ravines and swamps of Lewa – where we saw our first Grevy’s zebra; to the huge open plains of the Masai Mara with oceans of waving savannah grass and enormous sky levels, so rich with game – it gave us our first sighting of leopard. Clive and I would like to thank you all at Safari Consultants for organising this amazing trip of a lifetime for us and ensuring that our experiences were diverse, rich and most wonderful in every aspect.

Clive and Anne from Suffolk travelled to Kenya and Seychelles

Hi Michele, just a quick email to thank you for all the help with our trip, we had a truly amazing time and everything ran like clockwork. The Boma hotel was perfect for us; they let us check straight into the room on arrival and we even enjoyed breakfast on the terrace before hitting the sack, then a great afternoon by the pool before a lovely evening meal and a peaceful early night to prepare us for the excitement ahead. Offbeat Meru was a perfect re-introduction to Africa, and the Offbeat camp managers Craig and Ashley were amazing. The Rhino Sanctuary gave us our first ever viewing of rhinos, the whole area was lovely and quiet and as you know the camp is a tiny corner of heaven- perfect recommendation! The Offbeat corner of Mara was teaming with every size of wildlife and very few other vehicles ever ventured down into ” our” area of the conservancy. Basically the Offbeat way is exactly how we like to do Africa and I cannot think of anything negative to report. I will of course complete the questionnaire but just wanted to thank you personally for all your help. Speaking to the guides and managers they seem to agree Zimbabwe should be next on our list!

Philip and Natalie from Lancashire travelled to Kenya

February/March 2016

Frances, first of all again thank you (and your team) for putting together such a memorable trip, the memories will certainly stay with us. The accommodation was excellent, but we would single out Rothman Manor, The Plettenberg and Kwandwe as our favourites. To have a bottle of bubbly everywhere we stayed was a real treat, and to top it all, when the staff at Kwandwe came in singing happy birthday in both English and Afrikaans with such a gorgeous cake, that was really special. Thank you again Frances, you are a shining star and a credit to the company that is lucky enough to have you employed with them.

Colin and Angela from Sussex travelled to South Africa

Hi Michele, we had a wonderful time – thank you. All three locations were excellent in very different ways. Tswalu was amazing – the pinnacle was chasing a pack of wild dogs hunting over rough ground for many miles and them finally bringing down a red hearty beast right in front of us. Leeu House was lovely and can be totally recommended. Bushmans Kloof was very comfortable. Lovely room, good food and a really amazing location – just what we hoped. Overall a magnificent trip which we thoroughly enjoyed and your selections and organisation were perfect. Transfers all smooth and easy. Thanks again for a wonderful trip.!
