"As this was our first tour of this nature, we only had our own expectations and this tour surpassed them all. The tour guide’s knowledge was excellent and helped to add to the enjoyment of our holiday.
Mr Douglas and Barbara"
"Our whole trip went very smoothly , everything was perfect in Zanzibar. Well done and many thanks!!
"Seeing animals unique to Madagascar in their natural environment and able to photograph them as they fed and interacted with each other [was inspirational]. The tour guide, Tokey, had an amazing knowledge of all of the wildlife, plants - latin names included - and the history of the country and its people and customs.
Mr Ian Culley"
"The knowledge of our safari ranger and tracker was amazing. To see the animals at such close range, yet in a natural surrounding was unbelievable. We saw a lioness stalk and kill her prey which was sad yet incredible, after all it is what happens for their survival. The elephant drinking out of our plunge pool outside our lodge was the icing on the cake. The food and menus at the Great Fish River Lodge was excellent. I cannot fault the accommodation, food, or the staff they were fabulous.
Mrs Margaret Lambelle"
"The tour was brilliant. The Villa Verdi is a find. Springbok Atlas are efficient and well organised. The Accommodation was all good – some of it unique.
"The safari into the Serengeti will be remembered for our lifetime. Lions feasting on a buffalo kill, evening sunsets, staying in tented camps with the sounds of the wild around us.
Mrs Suzanne Vincent"
"We had the most wonderful time there thanks to your organisation.
"My husband and I both thought the tour was excellent - very well thought out and executed - but John made the trip for us. I would rate him as one of the best tour leaders I have ever encountered - and I state that after travelling widely and frequently for over 40 years. John worked continuously in the most conscientious manner. Nothing was ever too much trouble and he took a huge pride in his work. John definitely added a quality and enjoyment factor to our travelling experience. I hope this young man has a great future in tourism - he is certainly a credit to your company. Our driver was very good, too. I was enchanted by the beauty of the landscape and would love to return to Madagascar sometime in the future. Thank you for show-casing this beautiful island in such a great way.
Mrs Jeanette Ruberry"
"A belated thank you so much for the arrangements you made for our recent trip to South Africa. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our holiday.
"[What was inspirational was ] the sheer range of experiences from the vibrant city of Cape Town to the vistas of the wineries around Franschhoek and Stellendosch and the drive through the mountains to Sanbona in the Little Karroo. Seeing white rhino and elephants at sunset and then the amazing fynbos at Grootbos near Walker Bay. Every day brought something new and fresh.
Mrs Lindsey Riley"
"We had a marvellous time! Our driver Rarjed was brilliant at finding the animals and positioning the car just so. Seeing our first lion on the first day was so exciting. The view of the Masai Mara from Serena Mara lodge was an awe inspiring experience. Watching two male giraffes fighting was an unforgettable sight. As you can see it is impossible to pick the most inspirational moment, the whole trip was a dream come true."
"I would like to thank the travel advisor, Jonathan Fitzsimmonds for his patience, help and advice during the booking process. We were rather late in trying to arrange everything and I think we presented him with quite a challenge! He rose to it brilliantly. Almost every aspect of the holiday went like clockwork and we had a wonderful time. I think we were quite lucky to get an experienced driver too. His depth of knowledge of the wildlife, and in particular the birds, was invaluable. All in all, a fantastic holiday and we hope to return to Uganda in the not too distant future.
Mrs Lorraine Gardner"
"Ethiopia is an absolutely fascinating country - one which fully deserves to be known better. The infrastructure details were accurately described in your brochure, and any shortcomings were made up with the richness of historical culture offered to us. Thank you for a brilliant holiday.
Mr & Mrs Sheppee"
"Seeing so many animals in their natural surroundings and our guides ability to spot wildlife and his knowledge of the animals and plants we saw. The private journey was well worth the extra cost because our guide got to know what we wanted to see and did his best to find the things that were most interesting to us.
