I want to add my thanks...for what was truly an amazing trip. Everything worked so well and each of the lodges was unique, the staff wonderful, the food delicious, the guides extremely knowledgeable. I am still amazed at the wildlife we saw - and how close to them we were. What wonderful memories - and photos! Thank you so much for putting together such an incredible trip for us.

Good Morning, Mandy! It is hard to believe that our trip is over and we’re back home, all without a hitch. This note is to thank you - the trip exceeded all our expectations in every way, in large part because of your careful planning and attention to detail.
We benefited from your expertise, experience and judgement as you helped us put this trip together. The people, the lodges, the guides, the activities were all super - you knew where to send us and what we shouldn’t miss. And, by building the trip so that we went from urban, to rural, to wilderness just meant the trip built from day to day and we always looked forward to our next adventure.
It has been a delight to work with you. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Sincerely,

We made it home safe and sound and now look back to the most wonderful memories of our trip with R and A and the Canadian contingent through South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe. We cannot believe how fortunate we were to see the variety of animals in their natural surroundings, and so close!! We also found the people very pleasant and happy to show us just what Africa has to provide. Our accommodation was excellent and the food delicious.
Our last night in Johannesburg at the Safari Club was rather special as we met you for a very pleasant time together. Thank you so much for paying our way, most unexpected, but appreciated. We will certainly recommend you and your company to other prospective Australian friends. I also have a friend who is a travel agent so will pass your details on. Thank you again.

Hello Mandy!!! Here we are just returned from our amazing, amazing trip 😊We want to say you MANY THANKS for helping us on our great adventure, everything was perfect and we are so happy to have done each part of the trip.

Like I said before I would plan the trip in line with these bush pilots….You either start in Kasane and end in Maun or the other way round. I would also book place like in line with the next place. I would have gone first to Nxai pan, the Eagle island, Moremi and the Savuti. What happened is that you are flying to Moremi, then back to Eagle island and then Savuti….hope you understand.
We were also not too sure about the planes but realized that sometimes you are on the “milk train”…when the bush pilot sees an airstrip he lands. It took us 2 :30 hours from Nxai pan to Moremi.
We the planes varied from a 4 seater “puke” plane to a bigger caravan (H is a very bad flyer). The pilots overall was not bad.
It would be really difficult for me to say what the best place was.
• The food at all the places were really good and plentiful
• The people were great, we were entertained by Moses every night telling us big stories which was good
• The time of the year is really hot so we are all well-tanned!!.
• People must be aware that this time of the year most tents are hot and a fan normally do not cool you down
• The game viewing was interesting with loads of zebra, giraffe and a big pride of lions. And obviously elephants. We had a friendly discussion one day with the famous elephant that digs up the pipes around the camp for water
• I think if you go there a bit later then you will see a whole lot more of the migration but that’s all luck
• If I must compare the game viewing to the other sites it was not as good but for us it was fine
• The Baobabs is a must to see!!!
Moremi – Khwai
• This is a very good property and coming from the heat with no aircon to a tent with aircon was really good
• Again the food was awesome
• The game viewing is spectacular, saw twice leopards, saw wild dogs who just killed a kudu, with a hippo protecting it and it was later claimed by crocodiles, lions and obviously elephants (a herd of about 80) one morning while having a cup of coffee. The interaction within this herd was really good
• I think because of the low water levels we did not really get to experience the real Eagle Island
• One night one of the waiters actually sang for us…after a bit of convincing….
• Will have to go back one day to experience all the water
• We didn’t see any cats but that’s not really why we go as it’s a bonus when you see them.
• We saw a massive herd of buffalo
Savuti – Ghoha Hills
• When we arrived there we met Nennette and we spoke Afrikaans, from then one we had long discussions with her and her husband Abram
• Again it was smoking hot in the tents but that comes with the time of the year
• Again we saw plenty game with wild dogs again, leopard and lion, massive herd of Eland of about 120, elephants
• The Savuti plains is a really interesting plains and would love to see it with water!!!
