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.
Beginning at the onset of arriving in Africa, gathering our luggage, and seeing a person holding up a sign with our name to direct us on the beginning of our journey, I have to say that the whole African experience was beyond amazing. AFter arriving at the first camp and seeing a large herd of elephants on the Tarmac from the small charter plane we were on, we were stunned at the amount of wildlife we encounter during the duration of our travels. We saw so much the first day, we would have been satisfied had we had to end the trip. Every guide we had at the all of the camps were so knowledgeable, intelligent, and fun! It is difficult to narrow down over three weeks of travel to state the most memorable....it ALL was. The overall decor and accommodations of the camps were superb, the game viewing was beyond unreal (how do you describe baboons viciously chasing a leopard right before your eyes?), and ohhh, the food! We are still in awe of how they can prepare such scrumptious food in the middle of the bush, served by charming, helpful, and wonderful staff.
There were four of us traveling, and I have to say that we would not change a thing, and would do this whole trip over again.
