  • The holiday is now a dream but a beautiful one I have to say. Everything exceeded our expectations and the memories will always be with us. Again thank you so much, I was very fortunate to make contact with you and with a very tricky situation regarding bookings you made things go so very smoothly. Cannot thank you enough. Hopefully we will be able to get some friends to live the dream that we just did and recommend your services.

  • Now that Abby and I are back to reality, I wanted to take the time to thank you for your expertise in planning our South Africa trip! Everything went very smoothly and the sleeping arrangements were perfect. Once again thank you for your support. You will definitely be recommended to others.

  • We had a wonderful time! Thank you for all of your planning. Everything came together beautifully. Both hotels were very nice and our rooms were lovely. Highly recommended.

  • Our trip to South Africa was fantastic!  Since we’ve been home, whenever anyone asks how the trip was, my response is always the same:  I say, 'Indescribable!' and then spend the next forty-five minutes trying to describe it!

    Our eight days in and around Cape Town were great.  The apartment we rented in Seapoint was great and perfectly located for us.  We drove a lot: the Cape Peninsula, Boulders Beach, Cape of Good Hope, Muizenberg, Stellenbosch, Hermanus.  We went to beaches and the botanical gardens. Our kids hiked the Skeleton Gorge Trail on the back side of Table Mountain (Rich and I took the tram), and we all hiked Lion’s Head.  The three of them made it all the way, but my fear of heights caused me to take stock, turn around, and find a rocky perch to view the sunset - beautiful. Every single meal we ate was outstanding!  In addition to enjoying some great restaurants in Cape Town, one day we drove to Hout Bay Market, and on another we went to Langebaan and Die Strandloper - fun!

    As for the safari - truly unbelievable!  Our experience at Elephant Plains couldn’t have been better. On our very first game drive we saw four of the Big Five, among many other animals, including some babies, and on the day we left we were lucky enough to see the fifth - a big male leopard.  To be that close to those amazing animals was overwhelming and almost surreal. Among us we had three pretty high-powered cameras, another smaller one, and three smart phones, so I think we probably have about 3,000 photos.  That said, there is nothing that can compare to actually BEING there, to be in a jeep surrounded by elephants ten feet (or closer) away - close enough to see their eyelashes; to watch as a baby hyena tries to climb up the jeep tire while the mother plops down very nearby to keep an eye out; to witness a cohort of five young male lions feeding on a Cape buffalo - again, so close we could hear them chewing - okay -  so that was a little unsettling!  It was wonderful!

    What surprised us?  For one thing, the fact that it all went so smoothly.  Considering that we were starting out from three different places (Denver, Minneapolis, and Lagos), and that there were many legs to the trip, it is amazing to me that there were no “hitches”. 

    Thank you, Ramona, for helping to arrange our amazing, fantastic, wonderful trip!

  • Well Ramona, you did it again….. You pulled off another absolutely amazing (last minute) vacation for us! This trip was your 5th with us and you did not disappoint. In fact, this trip will be the most memorable one so far. Great call on Boulders Lodge…we absolutely fell in love the place. Now Ramona, I want to know how can we possibly top this vacation? Thank you once again for planning such an amazing trip!

What I love about Africa the most are the sights, sounds and smells of the African bush – they are addictive and it does not take long for the African Bug to get you!
