We have returned from our African adventure. What a trip! We had an amazing time and all the accommodations, flights, transfers and guides were outstanding and worked seamlessly. We also had to adjust a bit to the supported travel culture whereby 3-4 people meet you at every stop and want to carry your bags, show you the way. We are used to making our own way, but it was helpful on a first trip to such a foreign place. We felt like royalty!
Thank you again for all your help in the planning and organizing of the trip. We will certainly recommend you and your African Travel colleagues for any of our friends planning a trip to Africa.
Don't be surprised if we contact you in a few years to go on another trip to Africa!

I wanted to thank you for a trip beyond comparison. An African vacation was not a priority for me, to say the least, but as it was a passion for my wife, Julie, so we went. The experience was the adventure of a lifetime and I want to thank you for coordinating a trip where the smallest of details was provided. From the airport guides that walked us through immigration, customs, security and to our gate to the luxury “tent” camps to the personal driver/guides.
Altogether it was far more than I could have expected. I’m so glad I bought a camera with a 300mm telescopic lens as I took about 3,000 photos and so glad I did. The photos help refresh our experience. The guides were terrific and there wasn’t an animal in the Amboseli, Masai Mara or Chobe that we didn’t see and capture on camera, including the Cheetah and leopard (with cubs), lion prides, Jackals, Hyena’s with pups, Rhinos, all the grazing Animals-Sables, Gazelles, Dickdicks, Zebras, Wildebeests, Hippos, Crocks, Oh My!
The animals are so amazing. The accommodations so luxurious. Local personnel and staff, as well as the Masai villagers (sometimes one and the same), were so accommodating and attentive we really felt like royalty. The Masai Mara Sand River Tent Lodge was over the top with hardwood floors, Persian rugs, chandeliers, drapes, double sink vanity, oversized claw foot tub, outdoor shower, parlor, views of the Sand River from tent and deck. Billiard tent, Parlor tent, Dining Tent, outdoor breakfast and lunch (if not on the high plains). It was all so wonderful. All the accommodations AND DRIVERS were tip-top.
Thanks again for putting together the adventure of a lifetime and I think it goes without saying well be calling on your services again in the not too distant future
