Dear Michele, you arranged a most amazing holiday for us, our two children, their spouses and five grandchildren to Cape Town, Gaborone and Madikwe. EVERYTHING was perfect, the transfers worked like clockwork, and you helped make our 50th Anniversary celebration a trip to remember forever. So a BIG THANK YOU – you did us proud.

Dear Michele, we had a fantastic time. The staff at Nottens Bush Camp and Waterberry were fab. Special mention to Gift at Nottens. Thank you for an excellent holiday.

Dear Jane, just finishing breakfast in the courtyard at Auberge Clermont on the last day of the best holiday of our lives. Superlatives don’t come close…but perfect, stupendous, spectacular are getting there. Everything has been just perfect – down to the last and finest details: thanks so much for organising a quite wonderful trip. The safari was brilliant – we saw everything and Tanda Tula camp and team were fab. Glen Avon was so smart and friendly. Mosselberg was spectacular. That room! That view! And we did get to see (just two, but enough) some whales. Then Franschhoek to end it all…wine tram a perfect way to see the vineyards (hic!) We plan to amble back via Richard Branson’s place then Stellenbosch en route to the Airport. As you inferred at the beginning, we will certainly be back as well as evangelists for Safari Consultants hereon in. Thanks again.

Rob, returned from a great holiday last night. Things went really well. Super impressed with you and the business. Felt from the beginning that you spent enough time chatting around what we were looking for and had loads of suggestions and useful advice. From there the admin and the interaction was really professional and ultimately it all worked like clockwork.

Hi Bill, we had an amazing trip! All the lodges/hotels were great with perfect staff. The tour you booked for us at Swakop was very good. Berger did a great job and full of stories. We saw lots of seals and jackals and had a very exciting ride back over the dunes. Seeing it all from a scenic flight gave a different perspective. Caesar gave us an unbelievable trip all the way up to the Kunene River. Lots of kilometres but such wonderful sites to visit. We tracked but didn’t see the lion. Lots of elephants and antelope and herds of zebra racing the land cruiser across an enormous open plain! Huab was a welcome rest and we drank our wine while lazing in the hot spring. Not much large game around now but plenty of smaller interest. At Ongava we saw 3 prides of lion (about 22 in total) and actually walked through the bush to follow a female white rhino and her calf. Wow! Two black rhinos visited the waterhole in front of the lodge every evening! Etosha was excellent. Lots happening! The highlights were a lion stalking very large herds of game at Salvadora waterhole and a group of 12 elephants bathing at Klein Namutoni. It was good spending 2 nights at Okonjima. So much to do! lots of cheetah and leopard to track with great sightings. We were also fortunate to find the two wild dogs and to see porcupine from the night hide. The visit to the San bushmen at Bagatelle was well done – and we met quite a few colourful Himba people up in Damaraland. We even saw an aardvark at Bagatelle on a night drive. The roads were not as rutted as we expected but the road in and out of Twyfelfontein was very badly corrugated. The smaller Duster was fine but perhaps a bigger 4×4 would give a bit more confident and a smoother ride. Thanks Bill for organising such a great trip. We really loved it.

Dear Frances, what an incredible trip! Thank you so much with helping us put together this trip of a lifetime. We will definitely be keeping another safari trip in mind for a future trip! Thank you again!

Frances, sorry it’s taken me over a week since we returned from Kenya to let you know what a brilliant time we had. It really was the best holiday either of us have been on. We have been raving about it to everyone, and we’ve really caught the ‘safari bug’. We’d love to go again, to somewhere else in Kenya or elsewhere. Thank you for all your help, right down to sending us all the documents in that nice travel purse. It was really useful.

Hi Michele, I wanted you to know that the trip was fabulous and has now replaced Peru as my favourite trip. You guys clearly know what you are doing. Several people even mentioned what a good variety of locations we were seeing. At Selinda, we loved the variety of topography. Saw so much, including two wild dog kills in one day. Lots of people never see one. Gruesome, but incredibly interesting. Loved the camp, the people, the food, the personal hospitality. At Shinde the landscape was wetter and interesting, the food was good and staff very nice. Camp Kalahari we saw some great birds and new animals especially at night and we enjoyed the meerkats. Drinks, dinner and sleeping on the pans was magical.

Hi Frances – wow what a holiday! Keith and I will live off the memories for many years to come. We both wanted to write to you to give you a personal thank you for all your due diligence and attention to detail. At all times you were professional, friendly and listened and guided us in the best way to achieve our holiday dreams. Every single detail we had ever mentioned seemed to have been catered for at all of our accommodations and even when you were out of the office we never felt out on a limb the service provided by not only yourself but Safari Consultants has been exemplary. Keith and I would like to personally thank you for making our holiday the dream that it was. It was a pleasure working with you to build our holiday of a lifetime. Thank you so much.
