From my colleague Neil on his recent trip to Rwanda this awesome picture of a Mom and baby! Gorillas are so human like in their nature and you can just see the love and security that a mother offers her offspring!

It was an absolutely great trip and we loved every minute of it. It was so worth it to upgrade and the accommodations were excellent and all our guides were superb! I am very glad you used you and will absolutely recommend you to everyone I know who will want to see the gorillas!
Dear Liesl, I just had to write to thank you for the magnificent planning of our honeymoon - this trip was an absolute dream come true. Steve and I loved every second of it, from Cape Town (where we both want to move to now) to the perfection of Lion Sands - you could not have choreographed a more perfect itinerary. Many, many thanks again for everything - it was such a pleasure getting to meet you in person, and I hope that we'll be able to work on a return trip very soon. All best wishes, Erika
Ilze: Just a word to say thank you for arranging a wonderful trip for us. Everything went as scheduled, except for our trip up Table Mountain, which got scrapped due to fog. We were met promptly with each tour and transfer. The tours were wonderful, and just the right balance. The visit to the townships with Utando was interesting, and the village tour in Victoria Falls was interesting. The falls were magnificent, and very glad you added that to our itinerary. Both game camps were great, and quite different in terms of the topography. Glad we went to 2 sites. A different feel. Clearly Simbambili was a 5 star resort. I also liked Notten’s. People were all very friendly and helpful. The food everywhere was great. Cape Cadogan was great location for Capetown. Many restaurants were conveniently close by. In Vic Falls we did a helicopter tour, but found a different company other than Wilderness. They were a bit cheaper, and their helicopter was newer. When we drove out to the helipad and saw the other copter companies, it was evident that we were in the most modern vehicle. The people there were great. I would gladly recommend your company to anyone. You have been great. If we ever decide to do another trip to Africa , I know who I would call for help. Jeff
Hi Jeff and Leisl! We JUST walked in the door from our fabulous holiday! We all cannot thank you ENOUGH for all the hard work and effort that all of you put into this vacation for us. Believe it or not, absolutely EVERYTHING fell into place.....there was NEVER anything that was not taken care of from our first day in the Mara until the minute we left Zanzibar. Even the fire at Nairobi airport did NOT affect us or our travel plans. Of course we are ALL quite jet-lagged at the moment and cannot think straight. My son and daughter, who have the expensive cameras, have easily over a 1,000 pictures each while I have a mere 400 photos. Liesl, just to let you know, we saw 2 amazing crossings!!! And happily, without any fatalities! (However, there was one baby 'wildie' who got stuck in the rocks :() I will be in touch next week....once I am clear headed. THANK you ALL for an EXTRAORDINARY job!!! I will be happy to address any questions that you would like. My children are both quite familiar with tripadvisor. They will be posting their feedback.....all very positive in that website. They will probably be posting about the individual camps and guides. I am not sure they are familiar with your organization and I would be happy to pass along any place where they can comment on your excellant skills. We'll be in touch! Best, Pattie
On Safari, we saw all of the Big Five plus a multitude of animals and a beautiful array of birds. Included was the first spotting of a white rhino in the last several weeks at Mombo and following a pride of lions from laying around and cubs playing, to their stalking a herd of buffalo, isolating one and eventually taking it down. National Geographic definitely abridges their footage and removes the sound track! What an experience!!! All of the camps were excellent, with highly knowledgeable guides who made sure that we saw all. Thank you so very much for the work you did to put this together for us! It was truly a fantastic dream of a lifetime trip!!!http://www.africansafaris.com/ →
