Hi Rob, Tafika – it really is a lovely camp with nice friendly people and atmosphere, the food was excellent as well. A couple of nice Leopard sightings, on daytime in a tree and one night time under spotlight. Kaingo – we were lucky to be assigned Patrick (again) as a guide – he is very good, knows the area and the animals like the back of his hand and being interested in photography himself, was good at placement of the vehicle on sightings. Game viewing was excellent, Leopards galore and good sightings of everything else. Remote Africa Air’s direct transfer down to Lower Zambezi was fantastic, we met quite a few people who had spent a whole day travelling between the two areas and they were gutted they couldn’t/didn’t do what we did, and when you look at it we definitely did it right compared to theirs, so thanks for hat – worked out really well. Amanzi – provided the perfect wind down at the end of the holiday for us. Lovely appointed camp, really nice and very quiet and relaxed, again lovely food and we were well looked after. All in all another great trip. We saw lots of great wildlife, met some lovely people, were looked after really well wherever we went.

Hi Rob, Chobe Princess – Fantastic start. Total unwind from first few minutes on board. Mwamba – Excellent camp. First rate guide. Marvellous wildlife. Tafika – Bush walking was great. Guides very knowledgeable. Old Mondoro – Great Camp. Water activities a real plus, and good to wash out all that dust at the end. Thanks again. A wonderful trip and just the right mix of experiences.

Dear Michele, Botswana, as usual, lived up to all my hopes and expectations. All your arrangements, timings, connections, etc. worked out beautifully – thank you. It really was my dream holiday – I don’t think I’ve woken up yet! The 3 camps were absolutely delightful – very different in their own ways and at all three camps, my guides were excellent. Very best wishes to you all at Safari Consultants, and again thank you for organising my trip this year.

Hello Bill, as first time safari goers the holiday ran like clockwork. Transfers were punctual and friendly, all travel arrangements were well communicated and the choice of camps and order of camps suited us very well. The information provided before we left was invaluable including camera types and clothing. We had nothing to compare this to but are fairly sure it would be hard to beat.

Trevor and Mary from Hertfordshire travelled to Kenya

Hello Rob, we had the “trip of a lifetime” ! Skeleton Coast Safaris were the best. Andre was our pilot, and his son Kyle came too. We had the plane to ourselves as no-one else came with us. They also gave us a tent each at their camps which made all the difference. Our driver – Binius – at Ongava was excellent – to be recommended. Victoria Falls Hotel is a must! So unspoilt.

Hi Frances, I wanted to thank you for everything you arranged for us, it went perfectly; everything dovetailed beautifully and you had thought out our needs exactly. The safari experience was breathtaking – we had no idea we would get so close to the animals, and from the first moment it was one thrill after another. Both camps were lovely in their different ways and the order we visited them was just right, as we moved smoothly from the bliss of the Fairview shower and bed to what felt like the height of luxury at Offbeat but then to the even smarter Naboisho. Everyone was very friendly and helpful and our bush walk and camp (which turned out to be the night of the full moon!) very exciting. (We nearly walked into a rather bold lioness). So, it could not have been a more wonderful experience and we will certainly recommend you very highly when we get the chance.

Hi Rob, it was a wonderful adventure holiday in every way. We were so lucky with the Skeleton Coast Safari and Andre Schoeman who was a fantastic guide and told us so much of the country and its people, etc. We were the only two on board the Cessna apart from pilot Andre and his son who was almost a pilot! We had tents to ourselves at the camps so room to spread our bits and pieces and we were looked after royally. The final stop at Victoria Falls was a delightful end and seeing the Falls at close proximity made it much more realistic. We had a 13 minute helicopter flight which was incredible. We saw many animals particularly at Ongava and Etosha – all making it a memorable holiday. Hope we will be doing another with you before too long!

Dear Frances, just to say the safaris were excellent. Your service was brilliant. Ange and I had a fabulous time. I’ll be filling in the questionnaire but just wanted you to know everything went well and all the pickups and hotels worked very well too. We were thrilled with both the Offbeat and the Naboisho experiences. It was a good mix and the flycamp was a marvellous icing on the cake and several of the other guests at Naboisho were envious of our experience though the walking safari was a good part of it too. We did see such diversity the abundance and close encounters were truly fabulous. Thanks for all your expertise in sorting places which were exactly right for what we were seeking. Much appreciated.
