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
Thank you very much!I can’t begin to explain to you how wonderful everything was. To be honest, even though I had agreed to everything, I was still a little skeptical about some of the recommendations you had made. Turns out, some of the things I had been most skeptical of (Cape Town, Victoria Falls, San Camp) were the absolute highlights. You and your team did a remarkable job and Milena and I have already begun trying to figure out a way to get back. If there is ever anything that we can do to help you all convince prospective clients that this is something that they need to do, we’d love to help.As far as pictures go, Milena and I are far from good. However, that didn’t stop us from taking ~2,000 photos. I’ll send you an invitation to our Snapfish folder. Additionally, I’m a fan of African Safari Consultants on facebook. I’m not sure if that gives you access to my photos, but if it does, we’ve got a bunch of them posted there as well. Again, most of them are pretty bad, but if you happen to see anything that you’d like to use, they’re all yours.If I get some time later today or over the weekend, I’ll try to put together a more thorough review of everywhere we went/stayed. Needless to say, we were impressed by everything and we only have good things to say.Thank you all so much for everything you did.
Camille Thank you so much for all your help, we had a GREAT time, and everything worked like clock work. All three properties were fantastic !!! The private planes worked great and the crews were excellent. The group that helped us through immigration at the airport the last day were a wonderful surprise and made the entire process very easy. We got off to a great start at Londolozi, managing to see all of the big five on our first day. The facility was great and the kids fell in love with the rangers and entire staff, for families it is wonderful. Jamala Madikwe was very very nice, with a bonus of a sofa safari on the deck, something I doubt you would get anywhere. Once again the staff was great and Rodney make us feel like we were guests in his home. The biggest and BEST surprise was Camp Jabulani, WHOW!!! The property is beyond description, probably the best place I have ever been. Once again the staff was great and the opportunity to interface with the Cheetah and ride elephants was clearly the highlight of the trip. Once again thank you for all your hard work and for doing such a great job. Wade
When we told everyone about the incredible, customized trip that you put together for us in such a short period of time, they all wanted your name and number. We gave it out and simply said that you were the best! The trip truly was everything we wanted it to be. The camps you selected were outstanding--the food, people and activities could not have been more incredible. We loved every minute of it and want to return again and maybe bring our family.
