The beautiful Cheetah A newsletter popped into my inbox yesterday from a lodge in the KwaZulu Natal province of South Africa. At the bottom they added some really interesting facts about Cheetahs which I didn’t know. So I thought I would do a little research and see what else I could learn for myself. Here [...]
Having just traveled through Kwa-Zulu Natal I thought it appropriate to share a little information about one of the amazing sights in this green province of South Africa. The Drakensberg Mountains stretch for 1,000km across South Africa and also border Lesotho. South Africa’s highest mountain is also found in this range at 3,482 meters high [...]

Hi Ilze, We are writing to thank you for organising such a fantastic trip for us. Without doubt, it was the best trip ever for us, even though we travel overseas from Australia regularly and all our trips have been great. Africa was the last of the major continents for us to visit and your superb organisation made it wonderfully unforgettable for us. Without exception, we loved each of the places you recommended and arranged for us to stay in: Cape Cadogan/Cape Town, Villa Violet/Windhoek, Kulala, Swakopmund, Dora !Nawas, Etosha/Onguma, Ilala/Victoria Falls, Chobe, Savute and Xugana. Each location provided something a little different and fascinating. Each was excellent: friendly, helpful and professional staff, outstanding accommodation, food and drinks, fabulous guides and activities, great wildlife and settings. We were enthralled. And your travel advice was flawless: accurate, comprehensive and valuable. We can't thank you enough for making our first journey to African (and hopefully not our last) so absolutely wonderful. We also really appreciated meeting you, even briefly, in Cape Town. We have no hesitation in recommending you and your company to any of our friends who plan to visit Africa. Also we would be glad to post our views on your website or trip advisor. We plan to place enthusiastic reviews of each of the places we stayed and of the activities on trip advisor, but first wanted to pass on our most sincere thanks to you for your efforts on our behalf. Thanks to your efforts our trip was flawless, seamless and fantastic. You do great work! Thanks again so much. Very best wishes, Don and Gael Gartside.
Hi Ms Lize, We are back home sound and safe. We had lovely time. We appreciate the way you had organized. Trip was simply superb and we had fabulous time. Every thing was so perfect. We just can't stop talking about the trip. All hotels were very good and people were very courteous and friendly, except for the Somerstand hotel in Port Elizabeth . The bathrooms were not clean. The person in the front office was not very friendly and took long to check in. Our guide and driver mr.David was very helpful and kind. We had a perfect vacation and enjoyed every moment. We thank you for organizing such a lovely and perfect holiday for us. ..The accommodation in every place was good: starting from Johanesburg, Kruger(simply fantastic), Hippo Halo in Hazy View (beautiful), Cape Town Taj Hotel (fantastic), the farm at Outdshoorn was the crowning glory of our trip -wish we had spent one more day. Our special thanks to all the guides locha and Jason in Kruger, Phillip, Atil,and David who were very friendly and helpful. Last certainly not the least ,thanks to you for organizing things so well! Regards, Revathi Narayanan
Hello Liesl, I am so pleased with this trip to Botswana. The country was beautiful and green. The weather was very comfortable. We saw many of the animal life, certainly a successful safari with lions; leopards; cheetah; painted dogs; elephants; hippos; giraffe; zebra; impala and much more. The lodges were marvelous, really. The food was great, no one became ill. Everything went exactly as planned, everything. I thank you so much for arranging this adventure for our family. I am so impressed that a trip of this sort with so many different arrangements to be made, that it can go as flawless as it did. We had a great time. Thank you so much, and thank you to all that did such a memorable and remarkable job in a service of providing a great safari. Happy New year! I will send a picture or two.
Every aspect of our trip was spot on - no delays, missed connections, late flights or missing transfer drivers. We came home with thousands of pictures and many incredible memories. Thanks to your expert consultation, we had the trip of a lifetime and have been smitten by the people and places we've experienced. Thank you for being so attentive and responsive to our questions. I have already provided your contact info to several colleagues who are interested in planning a trip to Africa. We hope to plan another adventure to Africa - perhaps Namibia next time and will be sure to call you!The McClays
Jeff & IIze, We had a fabulous time in South Africa! Our whole trip was incredible, and we couldn't believe how friendly everyone was, how beautiful the sights were, and how amazing the food and wine was. We absolutely loved Simbambili Game Lodge, we had a wonderful ranger and felt like part of the family during our stay there. We also enjoyed Lion Sands River Lodge, and had some wonderful game sightings while we were there. Thank you so much for arranging such a great trip. Best, Liz & Jonathan
