The trip was great. We got to see everything we wanted to see, including the big five and the migration of large herds of wildebeests and zebras.The travel company was extremely helpful. The pre-trip prep was very thorough, but the true test came when I lost my cellphone in Mara towards the end of the trip, and then our return flight was unexpectedly cancelled. So I was stranded in Nairobi with my 12-year-old, having almost no means of communication with the rest of the world, and the rebooked flight was not until 5 days later. The travel agency worked with local providers and put together a 3-day side trip for us to go to Lake Nakuru to see rhinos, rebooked our local transportation, and made sure that a local agent would be at the airport to help us when we departed --- and they made all the arrangements within a day. They helped make a really stressful situation a lot easier to deal with.

This trip resulted in the most extraordinary two weeks of my life! Everything, and I mean everything, was absolutely perfect. I had a vision of what I wanted this trip to be and worked with Sherilyn at the travel company to bring the vision to life. She provided sound advice and created an itinerary that was spot on! Throughout the year of planning, Sherilyn was extremely responsive to any questions or concerns that I had. I was provided a very detailed trip itinerary, along with everything I needed to know about traveling to Africa.  No stone went unturned and we were very prepared as a result of all of the information provided.The trip itinerary covered both Southern Africa and East Africa over the course of two weeks. We pulled out all the stops and included as many activities as time would allow.  From a helicopter ride over Victoria Falls to a rhino walking safari in Zambia to a hot air balloon ride over the Maasai Mara in Kenya—none of the activities disappointed!Every one of the guides we had was excellent.  The service we received at the airports (both inbound and outbound) was exceptional. All of the accommodations (hotels and camps) were amazing and we would definitely stay at any of them again.This was definitely a trip of a lifetime and I don’t believe it will ever be outdone! Thank you Zicasso for connecting me with this travel company!

Our trip to Tanzania was executed well and went off without a hitch. We enjoyed every minute of the safari-the game drives, the luxury lodges and tent camps and the great meals! Relaxing at the end in Zanzibar was a nice finish to our trip!

This was an excellent company to work with. We would recommend to all.  However I want to preface this review by stating that this trip was planned back in Jan. of 2020, prior to the Chinese virus disaster, and that this trip was postponed in March 2020 for 3 consecutive years. Our original travel planner left the company, and a new one was installed to carry on this trip to completion, (she did a great job).  The goal of our trip was based on cultural aspects and the people of the countries visited.  Despite setbacks, all and all this was a good trip.   Of course, there were several instances beyond everyone’s control that caused this trip to be less than stellar.  Weather (pollution). We didn't see the sun for 30+ days, and changes due to the Chinese virus. The explanation of events and itinerary were far more glorious than received.  Not bad, but different.  But all in all it was a great trip nonetheless. Yes we would recommend to all.

The trip was great - everything we wanted it to be! The travel designer was very responsive in adjusting our itinerary to make sure that we got the experiences and accommodations that we wanted in each of the four locations we went.  The transports that the designer arranged were very professional, friendly, punctual, and knowledgeable.  This was the perfect way to plan and spend our honeymoon!

I would like to focus this review on Natalie at the travel agency. Bar none, she is the best travel advisor I have ever worked with. I have been traveling all over the world and in the United States for well over 15 years. I've worked with all grades of travel agents including very high end and well known ones, nationally and internationally. Natalie surpassed all of them. She worked with me to create a 2 week South Africa itinerary for my family of 6. She even helped blend this seamlessly with a volunteer trip that we were taking to Madagascar at the end of our trip even though this wasn't her specialty. Finally, we're vegan. Natalie was great at giving us ideas and also arranging for vegan meal options at the various hotels/accommodations we stayed at.We started planning relatively close to our trip date so this put a bit more pressure on her. I had done a lot of my own research and had my own ideas also. She worked with all of this and made it so easy. She worked very efficiently and got back to me quickly; was always very thorough and knowledgeable when answering questions; she was very flexible and was never at a loss finding us alternative and options when I asked for more. To make things even more complicated, right in the middle of our time in Madagascar, we had to cut our trip short and return early. Using Whatsapp from Madagascar, I connected with Natalie. Together, we were able to arrange the return in a matter of hours. Her help was invaluable as our volunteer camp in Madagascar had no electricity and very poor network connection! She made the change quick and easy.When our process first started with Natalie, my first concern was if she was real or was she a scam artist trying to take my money. Sending large sums of money to someone who I've only met online was not something I was comfortable doing. In response, Natalie didn't become defensive. She simply sent me so much information about herself and her company that I had no doubts that she was real. This is just one example of how she handled our interactions so quickly, efficiently and with care. After asking some background questions, she sent me some potential itineraries. She  provided options and alternatives along the way. As I had some ideas of my own, she was very quick to give me feedback on my ideas and also to help incorporate them as needed. Her knowledge of South Africa was invaluable in making our final decisions. Our trip took us to Cape Town and the surrounding areas for several days, then to Timbavati Reserve for some game drives for several days, Blyde Canyon for a day and then Johannesburg. Every part of our trip met or exceeded our expectations. Even the rides she arranged from airport to hotel and our tour guides/companies were all wonderful choices. The tour guides were personable and knowledgeable adding quite a bit to the experience. We always felt safe and were able to focus fully on making the most of our experiences.I cannot recommend Natalie and this travel company enough. Fantastic!

Our trip to Southern Africa was great.  Our travel agent and this company planned every step of the trip and we had a fabulous time.  Their plans were perfect.  The itinerary was well thought out and the timings were terrific.  Their choices of hotels and lodges were excellent and the guides they hired for us were wonderful.

This was a fantastic trip.  Madagascar is a completely unique destination.  From tropical rainforests, to beautiful beaches, to other-worldly looking "spiny forests."  So much unique animal and plant life to see.  And the lemurs were as amazing as we had hoped.  The country is not terribly developed from a tourism perspective.  This made the logistics a bit difficult -- especially domestic travel.  The island is very large and the main sights are widely dispersed across the island.  But the extra logistical issues were more than compensated for by getting to experience the country in a more pristine nature.  The travel agency was absolutely first rate, from beginning to end.  They did a great job planning an itinerary that suited our needs perfectly, and were incredibly helpful and professional throughout the process.  We encountered some serious difficulties in our international flights to Madagascar, and both the travel agency and their local partner agencies in South Africa and Madagascar were extremely helpful in getting our situation sorted out.  I would highly recommend this agency.

Having done tons of research on several travel companies in America and Africa, I was impressed the most with my contact from this company, so opted to finalize our safari plans with this agent. From the onset, our agent was professional, detailed, and was willing to go above and beyond to ensure we were getting exactly the experience we were seeking in Botswana. There are so many choices of camps, and we ultimately chose Machaba, Savuti, and Tubu Tree based on her recommendations.  We had also pre planned a trip to Singita Lebombo and Cape Town, which she took upon herself to make all the final arrangements seamlessly included into the itinerary. She was able to describe the differences and dynamics of each camp in great detail, which assisted with the final decisions.  Our agent quickly responded to all correspondence, was able to clearly define the whole experience, and made all travel arrangements including all transfers, flights, and anything else we requested.  This was not an easy task as we are from California, and the dynamics involved with travel was intense!  Having traveled all over the world, I have to say that our agent was the consummate professional, expert, and also quite a lovely person.

Meagan from the travel company was very helpful and revised items to make changes for us. We had a great trip and only ran into a few glitches which is unavoidable in a developing country. The contact company on the ground was also very helpful and when my daughter was sick one day and we decided to head back to a town arranged to pay for the extra night and meals.
