The trip to Kenya was beyond amazing and all three lodges surpassed our initial expectations we had for them. Even though they are all Saruni lodges, they each gave us a completely different experience. The really only complaint we could possibly have is that Rick and I weren't that great on getting Isabelle covered with bug repellant the first night in Samburu and she was eaten by them but James got us some bug repellant for her that worked much better than what we had with us that we used for the rest of the trip. The tracker/guides we had were fabulous with Isabelle and catered to her needs which in return made our lifes much easier! The staff at all three lodges were fabulous, making sure our needs (primarly Isabelle's needs) were met, food was great and there isn't anything negative we can say about the trip at all. We have already decided that we will be making a trip back to Africa a yearly vacation after experiencing this last trip.Rick Hood - June 2016
Hi Anza, I appreciate your help and promptness. When we are ready for Africa again, I will reach out to you. You are an asset to your company and I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone. Thank you again.Nishit Vithlani - June 2015
After 27hrs flight, we are back home now. everybody feel very tired. but I must say this is an unforgetable trip. I would like to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU again for your wounderful arrangement!
Thanks for your help, we realised our dreams in May 2015. Of course, the landscape, the wild animals and the shouting Falls give us very deep impression. I would not give you too much description due to my poor English ability. What I want to point out is the service and peoples' love of their work. From the first pick up at Victoria Falls airport, we feel this. At entrence of every lodge, we've got warm welcome with dancing, singing and welcome drink, towel. In such remote area, expecially in the Delta, people built up very good lodge with all necessary facilities.
Finaly, your program is perfect and running so well. The safari aircraft is punctual, at the airport, always on time pick up, reception of each hotel, lodge, camp give us very good assistance. Thanks to your recommandation, we have our "Good Bye Africa" dinner at the Harbour House the last night. Seafood is very delicious! Very glad to share our feeling with you and thank you again!Bao Zinhai & Gao Wa - May 2015
We truly had an outstanding time - the arrangements worked perfectly - just as you had promised. As it was our first time in South Africa, Clark and I have talked about what we would do differently if we were to do it again, knowing what we know now. We would change very little but made a couple of observations, such as:
- we would have liked another day in the wine country (you will recall we had to leave at 5:00 a.m so saw very little of Franschhoek)
- the safari/beach combo is terrific (most of the couples staying at Azura had come from safari) - however we would have been satisfied with only 4 - 5 days.
In terms of the time of year - approaching winter - it had many advantages for us - there was plenty of game, fewer insects, and was less busy. We hit Cape Town at a good time as we ran into others who were behind us and their weather was dreadful. Our day on Table Mountain was actually very hot and not too windy! Lucky.
We originally billed this as a trip of a lifetime but I think we will be back. There is so much more to see. We were also concerned that 8 days on safari might be too much - but we didn’t miss a drive, doing 15 straight - and it was terrific. Also, doing Lion Sands Ivory Lodge last was perfect - the luxury of those rooms, wow! We had a private sighting of a beautiful big male leopard across the Sabie from our room! On our last night we ate in the room and the elephants had found a way in and were grazing just in front of the room - talk about the wild kingdom!
Thanks again for all of your help setting this up - everyone we met was extremely helpful, friendly and gracious!Joan Quintin - May 2015
The trip was fantastic. Everyone was extremely friendly and attentive throughout the whole reserve. This of course was also the case at Ecca Lodge. The Lodge setting itself was also fantastic. Gorgeous rooms and perfect views. We felt really at home there and I have already recommended it to a couple of friends. No doubt we wish we were still there and would love to soon go back again! Also our driver Nico was perfect and I would want to have him again the next time we go. Will let you know the next time we can possibly make it down there.Rolf von Schwarzbek - February 2015
