Botswana was great

Botswana - April Botswana was great and everything was really well organized. I am not used to such luxury travels as I normally I am a bit more adventurous. The company (Ker & Downey) is excellent and they are really trying hard to please their customers! I loved Kanana camp and we had a great guide there including spectacular and fun drives/boat rides. Okuti was somewhat different…the accommodation is unusual but I enjoyed the rooms. Honestly the game viewing was not that great there but I was also a bit unlucky at some of the game drives (it really depends on your guide). Overall I preferred Kanana and I probably would choose another camp over Okuti now… even though the staff there was really, really attentive. Overall it was an amazing experience and I can only thank you for spoiling me and organizing everything. It was a real pleasure.

The places we stayed at were wonderful

South Africa and Victoria Falls - May Everything worked out great! The places we stayed at were wonderful. We got to see everything we had hoped to.  All of the connections and drivers were on time and we felt that the entire trip was perfectly planned.  The amount of time in each stop was sufficient and we wouldn’t have changed a thing.  The highlight was our stay at Thornybush.  What a great place! We loved the game drives. When we got to Thornybush in the afternoon, we were immediately taken care of, lunch even though lunch was over, check-in and then an hour later there was tea and our first game drive.  The people were professional and friendly. Our guide on our safari drive,Chris,was so knowledgeable. We felt completely safe and learned a great deal about animal behavior.  The drives were peaceful and yet exciting.  Thank you for your time planning this trip.

Africa as it is supposed to be

Hwange - Victoria Falls - Zimbabwe June Hi Liz, Thank you so much for your help and patience. It was a wonderful journey, a great experience and surely not the last. The camp was great, we saw almost every animal in the park and we had a very special lion experience we will never forget. Thank you again for showing us Africa as it is supposed to be.

Zambezi Safaris did a terrific job

Livingstone - May Liz Zambezi Safaris did a terrific job for us. Everything was perfect.We were always met at the airport by a courteous local speaking good English. Transportation services were punctual, clean and drivers had good English. Lodging and safaris were equally good with great, knowledgeable English speaking guides that clearly knew what they were talking about.  Food served was amazing, with a great variety everyday. I wouldn't change a thing. Roger

Thoroughly Enjoyed Canoe Safari

Canoe Safari - July Hi Liz! We just returned from our 6-week trip and are finally settling in enough to attend to our email messages :) Sorry for the delay. Ryan and I thoroughly enjoyed our canoe safari! We had the good fortune of meeting new friends and experienced a fantastic opportunity to enjoy the wild Africa that we see in National Geographic! You are welcome to publish our comments on your website. Here are some photos! I hope they fit your size requirement :) Have a lovely day, Melinda

Experience of a lifetime

Zimbabwe-Victoria Falls-September I would be more than happy to give you the greatest review.  It was any experience of a lifetime.  Even though we did not see any big cats, it did not take away that much from the experience. I can't say enough about the entire staff being superb.  Everyone was so accommodating... Being greeted by Denzel, who never forgot a name or what drink was preferred, was special.  Being greeted by friendly faces by ALL staff members added to the wonderful experience. Also our guide, Albert, needs to be given most of the credit.  This man is incredible! His fund of knowledge on any subject is remarkable and I would love to thank him personally.  Let me put it this way, right after we got back to Victoria Falls, all of us missed Albert.  Can you give me any email address or how to find him on facebook? If there was any problem at all, it was the chef.  All of the food was so succulent, my pants were getting tight.  Wow!  That man can cook. I will let Jennifer, Jessica and Laura send any pictures. I let them do all the photographing. Best vacation for me ever! Trish

It was a dream come true

Victoria Falls - October It was a dream come true!  Thank you for helping us plan the day.Please give my best to Anthony, who was a wonderful guide, and our amazing elephant, Marula!

We will most definitely be back

Botswana Linyanti-Zimbabwe Hwange -November We had an amazing time!! So many good memories it's hard to know where to start. However, we were quite surprised and excited about the helicopter ride.  If you mentioned it, I totally forgot.  It was spectacular! It will take a while to sort through the thousands of photos and hrs of video, but we will be happy to send a few photos.  Thanks for the heads up on size reduction requirements. We will most definitely be back.  Once we sort out our photos, we'll have a little "show" at our house with a few friends who have expressed interest in joining us on our next trip. Thanks very much for all your help on this trip. All transfers etc went perfectly smooth! We'll be back in touch soon with some photos, a few more thoughts on the trip, and probably some general questions for next time. Best Regards

Impressed by Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe-October We all had a wonderful time and thank you so much for your expert organization – everything worked like clock work and we were all impressed by Zimbabwe. Can't wait to do more trips there. Victoria Falls Hotel was stunning and I really could believe what great condition it was in as I was expecting the worse after all you hear about the way things have been going over the past 10 years. A brilliant safari and will certainly be in touch with more clients. Cheers,

Victoria Falls-Hwange Wonderful Itinerary

Zimbabwe-November The Victoria Falls itinerary was wonderful. Ilala Lodge, Shockwave Rafting, and the Sunset Cruise were all excellent and I can strongly recommend these. The climb up the gorge after the rafting is a killer - not for those with weak hearts. The Hwange camp was also excellent. However, we arrived a couple of weeks late for optimal viewing. The upside is that there were few other guests - so for part of our stay we have a ‘private’ safari excursions. All in all, a most enjoyable and informative itinerary. Thank you.
