Finally got some time to sit down and let you know how it went. Arrived in Entebbe International Airport and after clearing customs we were met by our host Paul and taken right to the Protea Hotel. Thank you for the nice bottle of wine waiting for us. 

We awoke and flew to Kibale where were met by Petrus from Volcanoes Safaris. We were surprised to see we were the only ones scheduled.  Petrus was absolutely wonderful. He made the trip for us. His warm personality and hearty laugh were more than we could have expected.  Please pass along to them how great we thought he did. 

The staff at all three lodges were warm and welcoming with great food and service. We met Aubrey (owner) at Ndali and his two dogs were our constant companions.  The managers (Gilbert at Ndali, George at Kyambura and Joselyn at Bwindi were always checking to make sure we were satisfied.  Really liked the way the chefs would touch base to see what you would like for dinner and make accommodations for different tastes. 


The chimp and gorilla treks were certainly the highlight of the safari but we also enjoyed the cruise and game treks as well.  Have to admit the climb at Bwindi is everything we were warned about and thank goodness we found then a little over two hours up.  Not sure I could have gone on too much longer!! The complimentary massage was very needed when back at the lodge!


Thanks again Beth

Our trip was wonderful. I came back feeling like I have just scratched the surface of Africa and cannot wait to go back. It is definitely not a “once in a lifetime” trip.

We loved Cape Town, but loved our time in Zimbabwe even more. You were right that the Zimbabwean people are the best. Every single person we met was extremely friendly and bending over backwards to make sure we had a good time. Our driver in Zimbabwe, Alex,  truly reflected that. Always a great attitude with a big smile – even when he sat in his van waiting for us while we ate dinner one night.

The Hide was exceptional. The staff there is phenomenal. We could have stayed a couple of extra days. Our last night there, our guide David took us to a place called Imbiza for sundowners which was truly spectacular. Only 5 of us and over 100 elephants around a watering hole. It was simply magic and a wonderful way to end our time in the bush. Saw three of the big five at Hwange. You told us in advance we wouldn’t see rhinos there so we were not disappointed when we didn’t. Didn’t see a leopard either although did come across a baboon freshly killed by a leopard so one was nearby. That’s the thing with a true bush camp experience – no guarantees about seeing specific wildlife. Honestly I would rather have that then be a at a place where they guarantee the Big 5 in the first 24 hours. I can see that at Disney!     

The Vic Falls Safari Club was great and a perfect way to end the trip. We really enjoyed that property. The pampering is very nice and the restaurant at the lodge was awesome.  Vulture Culture was unbelievable. Wow… Just wow! And thank you for the recommendation of The Palm. Such a nice experience dining outdoors on the patio.


I have become the biggest Africa ambassador since coming home and spreading the message that you shouldn’t wait to go to Africa but go as soon as possible. Someone shared a quote that kinda went like “Once you drink the water in Africa, it becomes a thirst that is never quenched”. It’s so true.

We owe you a big thank you. You were so patient with us and did an outstanding job of arranging everything.

Thank you again for this opportunity. It was truly a life changing trip

Hello Beth,

Just wanted to thank you again for putting together an amazing trip to Tanzania. The accommodations were fantastic, the staff at all the locations did everything possible to ensure that our stay was a memorable one. The food was great and the game drives were outstanding. We saw everything we wanted to see and more.
