  • Dear Madelein, we are now safe back in Sweden and trying to adjust to the Swedish winter, minus 2 today but sunny and clear skies! We all want to thank you for your excellent arrangement of our trip! It has been unforgettable with outstanding, life-lasting memories! The trip has given the people and nature of Botswana a special place in our hearts forever. All the best and a prosperous 2015 !

  • Hi Madelein,
    It was so nice meeting you in person. Thank you for taking the time to come and see us at the Olive. Thank you for taking care of our "vehicle issue" - actually, thank you SO MUCH for everything you did to make our trip the best ever! Yes! We loved the itinerary you built for us. Everything went smoothly and we had the best times of our lives. We still can't believe it's over. All that long wait and preparation, now we're back in our house still wishing for more. I guess like the saying goes 'all's well that ends well'. 

    Thank you so much again.

  • My trip was fantastic. I cant wait to go back! I totally have left my heart in Africa and I cant wait to go back. I can't thank you enough for everything that you did to make my trip successful and make my dreams come true! I met some amazing people from the start of my journey till I left. I wished my trip had been longer. The best part of my entire trip was the experience of looking through my camera lens. Being able to learn as I went to each and every safari and be able to bring it back here to the States to share with my family and friends From all of the transfers to the entering and exiting all of the different camps to the flights to the drives were incredible. I cant thank you enough for all of the help with everything.

  • Hi Madelein, we just wanted to write a short email while we are on a our honeymoon in Mauritius to say thank you so much for your assistance and hard work on our itinerary. Our trip to Kenya and the Maasai Mara, the transfers and the Eka Hotel stays were extremely memorable for us. Thank you also for the last minute re-bookings, we made all the changes and it did not affect our enjoyment of the trip! We had a really great time.

  • Madelein, I cannot express enough how incredible this trip was. Even when I thought it couldn't get any more amazing, I'd hit the newest place and be speechless all over again. Hands down one of the best trips I've ever taken and it's all because of your wonderful and expert planning. Thank you again for making my 40th birthday one I will never forget, on so many levels. I will be bragging about this trip forever and I've already dropped your name several times on Facebook so I hope it results in more business for you. Again, I can't adequately express how grateful I am for all your help.

Africa Safari Expert

People will always have a yearning for Africa, the huge spaces, the wildlife, its pristine environments - it affirms that life is not always about materialism. And there's nothing I like more than when my customers share the same sentiments.

Firstly, thank you very much for helping us put together this memorable holiday. Greatly appreciate your time & patience all through the planning - my delayed note to you in no way undermines how much I have appreciated the same. South Africa was expectedly great. Namibia I think is a little bit overhyped. Possibly, more so in our perceptions. I think there is too much gravel travelling & too few things far between. Relatively, less “efficient” if you know what I mean. Vic Falls was great as a place and we simply loved the insane fafting experience. Once again, thank you for everything.
