Hi there Lauren,
We have travelled a fair bit round the world but we can honestly say this trip was so well-organised, all the plane trips, guides, camps, food and lots of fun. We have 3 sons and daughters-in-law, plus 6 loving grandchildren, but nothing could replace the 50th Anniversary that you arranged for Bev and I .
We could not fault Tortilis Camp in any way. Kilimanjaro was in full view for the 2 days, and had a wonderfull sundowner on a hill with a full 360 degree view of the plains below, with elephants by the hundreds.
At Larsen's Camp we had quite a touching private dinner on a viewing platform, with cake and all the staff singing African songs for us - it actually brought tears to our eyes.
The balloon safari at Little Governor's Camp was definitely the highlight of our safari - it should be on everyone's wish list. The animals prowling thru the camp at night, food, drinks - you name it!
At Pioneer Camp we had 4 leopard sightings in one day,great food and comfort.
And The Manor - well, if anything this place was over the top, luxury and service that we will never see again. the bubble bath, "happy 50th anniversary" message and rose petals - we loved it!Eric & Bev Reid - May 2014
To say that the trip exceeded expectations on all levels would be an understatement. I went to Africa with a lifetime of books, movies and television having created a version that I thought unrealistic. But the trip WAS a movie. In all four lodges, and on every drive, I was met with such generosity, kindness, warmth and unexpected joy. I thought that I'd have the experience of viewing God's creatures, but never thought that I'd be within feet of lion, cheetah, elephant, and nameless other wild things. To see a baby elephant, still unsteady on brand new legs, go with "Mama" to the river, test the water, and run, wobble, falter, run, wobble, lean, ears flapping, trunk waving, was joyous! On one drive we came upon a lone male lion, guarding a very fresh kill. And on another, a lioness with 6 cubs in tow. They literally came within touching distance of the vehicle. But perhaps the best of all was the last drive, on the last day, when Dixon and William, (our guides/drivers) knowing I was longing to see one of the great spotted cats, spent hours searching, and suddenly called out.."CHEETAH!" As the pictures show, we came on two young brothers, bellies full, taking a siesta beneath an Acacia tree. My new camera caught amazing pictures, but my heart caught fire. Go2Africa was the best choice I could have made. Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING was taken care of. From the moment I landed in Nairobi, to the flight out, I could lay aside all responsibility, schedule, worry, and concern. What a gift, to simply be in the moment and trust that all was well. Africa is truly the trip of a lifetime. I left a large part of my heart, and took a lifetime of memories.Kathy Reese - October 2013
Andrés and I just wanted to thank you so much for helping us with our trip to Kenya! Everything was really, really great. We loved the Nairobi excursions and the hotel there was a nice way to settle into the trip. Amboseli was a great place to start, the staff was really welcoming, nice to hang out by the pool / on their deck and watch the animals by the water hole. Mbweha was just incredible. It was so great to be in such a small setting - there were only one or two other couples there and we felt like we had the place to ourselves. Sitting by the fire at night was a pleausre and we felt like the staff was welcoming us home as part of their family. Ilkeliani was like a dream. We LOVED it. The tents were incredibly glamorous, lovely bathroom inside, and all with the sounds of wild animals and birds as we slept - so cool! It was wonderful to sit out on their observation deck and watch the sunset fade into night with glittering stars and a bright moon as we sipped our South African sparking wine. Pinewood was a nice way to wind down and transition back to the real world. We felt like we had been transported to another planet with the safari - so peaceful and so few people around. We really felt connected to nature and felt like we were in a little bubble during that time. So thank you Lauren so much - this really was the trip of a lifetime. It was our best vacation ever (like a second honeymoon for us) and we will be recommending you to anyone who is planning trip to Africa!Katherine Ramirez - September 2013
First we have to thank Go2Africa and GameWatchers for such an amazing experience; it was like living in NatGeo Channel. This is our first African Safari and we appreciative for everything and blessed to see more than expected. With the exotic camp site, friendly Masai, eye-opening game drives, professional guides, skillful drivers and logistics … everything is impeccable. Food and drinks? We can’t believe we were able to have delicious 3 courses lunch & dinner every day plus plentiful drinks in the wilderness, this is absolutely remarkable! Again we are appreciated that Game Watcher keeps the well balance between the camp, the animals and the environment. We definitely will visit again to explore more. We love Africa, it’s awesome!Mina, Hong Kong - September 2013
We were very happy with our consultant Lauren's response to the Nairobi airport fire. We first heard about the fire from overhearing conversations of other travellers when we were at our camp in the Masai Mara and, a couple of hours later when I checked my email for the first time after hearing it, there was an email there from Lauren outlining the incident, the current status and timings for further updates. Lauren then delivered further updates as promised, and responded promptly and personally to my reply to her original email, all which we consider to be excellent service.
Overall, both for the response to this event and the overall planning of our trip, I rate Lauren and Go2Africa very highly and will absolutely recommend your business to friends.Danielle Heidtman - August 2013
