Big game safari in Tanzania
Superb: it exceeded our expectations. Watching a herd of wildebeest crossing the Mara River. It was a truly astonishing, primal sight. (more)Sheila Brooks
The time spent on Chumbe was so relaxing in on idyllic paradise Island & with it's eco ethics it is a place with a truly great purpose. (more)Becky Jones
Everywhere we looked there were birds: on the water's edge, in the air, perched in trees. Crocodiles slipped into the water and there were pods of hippos, plus giraffes, elephants, buffalo and impala. (more)Joanne Davenport
From 2775 - 2895 excluding flights
Luxury camping safari in Botswana
Every part of every day was special in some way. Of course seeing really wild animals in the really wilds the best bit. (more)Jill Jesson
The wildlife, the stunning location of our accommodation was truly memorable... A truly unique experience. Great service pre-booking. Great service "on the ground" - including all transfers etc. Thank you! (more)Judith Frehner
From 2985 excluding flights
Uganda safari, gorillas, chimps and game
Memorable parts? Spending time with Mountain Gorillas Tips? Combine seeing Mountain Gorillas with Safari in Uganda. Why waste time flying around? Local benefits? Yes. We were able to visit community projects and provide support direct as well as via local organisations. Overall rating? The very best wildlife experience! Not exactly reborn!! (more)Liz Green
From 2695 excluding flights
Selous Game Reserve safari, Tanzania
Most memorable was having such close contact with the animals as the lodges were not enclosed. In Ruaha River Lodge a male elephant crossed the river while we sat watching from our verandah and went beside our house to wander round the lodge. (more)Sheila Lucas
There were too many moments, the entire trip was memorable and exciting. I absolutely adored Sable Mountain Lodge, it was beautiful and relaxing. (more)Lisa Schooley
Having an elephant peer through the door of our banda was quite a surprise, but my favourite part was meeting lots of locals and learning bits of Swahili and tribal dialect...Tempted to give it five stars! Probably joint first with a long trip to Belize. (more)Jo Maw
From 2570 - 2755 excluding flights
Tanzania wildlife, people and beach holiday
A marvellous holiday that exceeded expectations in all areas! Most memorable was the incredible wildlife in both Selous and Ruaha national Parks, plus the coral reefs we saw around Mafia Island - truly spectacular. Lack of other tourists was a major plus. (more)Liz Taylor
Everything was wonderful. The setting perhaps captures most of it - staying in beautiful places in the midst of the national parks and conservation areas, where the animals were everywhere (from in camp to close by during game drives). (more)Laura Dukess
We were lucky enough to see a cheetah hunting a gazelle. Unfortunately the cheetah was unsuccessful but it made the hairs stand up on the back of your neck and you really felt the thrill of the chase watching the animals in action. (more)Ilana Howley
From 3495 - 3930 excluding flights
Zambia safari in South Luangwa
The most memorable part was when we were driving up a rocky dry river to see white rhinos and when they smelled/heard us and started coming towards us, realized they could be a lot faster than us on this terrain. (more)Sven Jeanrenaud
The most exciting was the gorge swing & white river rafting in Victoria Falls as well as the night game drives following lions stalking prey in the Okavango. (more)Jean Pierre Kruger
From 3080 - 4275 excluding flights
Tanzania  luxury safari
Memorable parts? The amount of animals we saw on safari. Tips? Avoid the Serena Serengeti hotel, not the best, service bad, food bad and rooms a bit shabby. Local benefits? No Overall rating? Brilliant - 9 out of 10. (more)Joanne Longhurst
From 5785 including domestic flights only
Namibia small group holiday, sand dunes & safari
Memorable parts? As you already know, I spent 4 weeks volunteering at the Knysna elephant park. Spending time with the elephants and working next two the staff and guides during this time was such an awesome experience. I learned so much about elephants and was able to make some long lasting friends here. It is very hard to narrow done what was the most memorable part. I love the elephants and fully enjoyed swimming with the seals and walking the cheetahs which I was able to do on my... (more)Jamie Mitchel
From 1350 excluding flights
Family luxury safari & beach holiday, South Africa & Mozambique
Do it. It was the best experience for us all including our 5 and 8 year olds. (more)Debbie Sermon
Amazing, could not have been better....We loved every second of our holiday, but the things that most stand out are our Safari at Tanda Tula, the beauty of Plettenberg Bay and the amazing people at Kanonkop House in Knysna. (more)Laura Beccaria
From 3235 - 5000 including UK flights
Kenya luxury safari and beach holiday, 10 days
Memorable parts? Getting up close and personal with the animals both on safari, especially in Ndutu where it is possible to off road, but also in the tented accommodation where we were surrounded by frolicking vervet monkeys, bush babies, mongooses and even a herd of elephants on one particularly memorable morning! Tips? Opt for the tented accommodation options - they were our favourites. Local benefits? We were pleased that the company was Kenyan-owned, and that we were... (more)Natalie Sayers
From US $1730 - US $1840 excluding flights
Southern Africa luxury wildlife & beach holiday
Botswana was the best. We want to go back today!! One of the most memorable moments is arriving in our first camp, and barely two hours later, sitting on a Land Rover just meters from a male lion, and nothing between him and us! Just amazing! (more)Dirk Bettels
Do it! Money well spent... (more)Katrin Nyman Metcalf
From 6555 including UK flights
Tanzania wildlife & beach holiday
It was a fantastic experience which was hugely enjoyable the organisation was flawless. Whenever we were due to be picked up we were picked up, for us, traveling with kids, it was the right combination between feeling like precious cargo and being on an adventure. (more)Azad Khan
Brilliant! Camping in the Serengeti with nobody else near us was the most memorable part of the holiday. (more)Pam Robinson
Seeing the migration cross the Serenara River in the Serengeti was the most exciting part...Marvellous. (more)Eric Lowry
From 2690 excluding flights
Gorilla safari in Uganda
The whole holiday was memorable for all the best reasons but probably the most outstanding were the 2 days spent with the Mountain Gorillas. A memory that will live with me 'til the end of my days! (more)Judith Towell
Unforgettable experience in country very different from my own. I met some very gentle and helpful people who added much to my enjoyment. All travel arrangements went smoothly and as expected. Given the chance, I would love to return to Rwanda. (more)Patrick Taylor
The whole of our week in Rwanda was extraordinary and memorable... and we lost our hearts to this small and extremely beautiful country. We had two days gorilla tracking which were wonderful - not least because of the great organisation and knowledge of the local guides and trackers. (more)Caroline Gant
From 3795 excluding flights
Zambia and Malawi tailor made safaris
In all respects it exceeded our expectations - I cannot imagine a better holiday. (more)Chaz Seymour
All days and trip were memorable, but above all watching elephants crossing the river 30 metres away from us having lunch in Old Mondoro was the most. We are definitely satisfied. (more)Vincenzo Bracciale
From 4500 including UK flights
Namibia small group guided holiday and safari
One of the best holidays ever. Truly enjoyed trip and already planning to revisit Namibia and neighbouring countries sometime in the future. (more)Marita Vihervaara
Great holiday. The agents in Namibia were extremely good. Their documentation, the vehicle provided and the first class guide helped make this a holiday to remember... (more)John Hird
It was a brilliant holiday. The guide was great, very knowledgable, very professional and his enthusiasm and love for his country shone through everything he did. (more)LINDA BLACKETT
From 2040 excluding flights
Botswana great wilderness journey
Memorable parts? To travel to an area of Botswana which we had not covered on previous trips ,with hope of seeing the Wild Dog. We chose three independent areas of Botswana to appreciate the diversity of the land and the wildlife. We were fortunate to see Honey Badgers, nocturnal Wild cats, Bat Eared Foxes, Black Striped Jackal, a family of Porcupines and other birds and Raptors. The big game didn't disappoint either. In Moremi all the big cats were visible, healthy herds of Elephant with... (more)Michele Grainger
From 5395 excluding flights
