Client Feedback : Umlani and Gomo Gomo

Natasha’s clients wanted the perfect Kruger safari, so she she weaved together an itinerary incorporating 2 of her favourite lodges. Both of the lodges are located in game-rich regions in the Greater Kruger, and are popular with first-time safari goers. These lodges are Gomo Gomo Game Lodge in the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve and Umlani Bush Camp in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve.  Here is Natasha’s client feedback : Hi Natasha, Sorry for the delay in responding to your e-mail but work has been super busy and the holiday already feels like a distant memory! We had an incredible time in South Africa, all the lodges were exceptional in there own ways and we got lucky with the wildlife. This was our 4th time on safari to South Africa and we witnessed things on this trip which we had not seen before! Including our first lion kill. Al the transfers ran smoothly and each time our driver arrived early for our collection. We could not fault the service we have had from you, from our initial enquiry, up until being on safari. We will have no hesitation to be in contact again the next time we want to plan an African safari. Which will be very soon hopefully! Thank you for everything you did and below find a few of our many photos taken! Regards Victor Brown...

Client Feedback : A Journey to Cape Town – Kruger – Vic Falls – Botswana

Liselle arranged an epic journey for her guests to southern Africa. The fresh and breezy shores of Cape Town were a must on the itinerary, as was the prime game viewing region of Moremi Game Reserve in the Okavango Delta. Of course, it just wouldn’t be a safari experience without a brief sojourn to the Greater Kruger in South Africa and the “land of giants” in Botswana’s Chobe National Park. The itinerary also included time at Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe.  Liselle’s carefully curated itinerary offered her guests the best of each region – and they weren’t disappointed. Liselle selected Cloud 9 Boutique Hotel in Cape Town, Nsala Safari Camp in the Greater Kruger, Camp Moremi in the Moremi National Park, Camp Okavango in Okavango Delta, Savute Safari Lodge in Chobe National Park and Ilala Lodge in Victoria Falls.  Here is Liselle’s client’s feedback:  Hi Liselle, We are back home after the best vacation ever! We were so pleased with all the accommodations and the transfer arrangements you made.  We commented repeatedly how you thought about everything.  The safaris were fabulous, saw everything except for the rhinos.  Camp Nsala was the most rustic of all the camps but we were pampered by the staff and we loved our guide there.  It was our first safari so didn’t realize it was rustic until we went onto the rest of the camps which were more luxurious! Intercontinental was a welcome site between SA and Botswana- it was very nice and the air conditioning was particularly fabulous. Victoria Falls was a bit dry but we were glad we went.  Ilala hotel was lovely and the shopping in Zimbabwe was the best.  I bought a beautiful drawing of an Ethiopian tribal girl by a local artist. We will be passing on your name to our friends and we will likely be back so thank you for your excellent service and hope to connect again in the future! Grace...

Client Feedback : Okavango Delta and Savute

Janelle’s clients loved their safari experience in Botswana. Janelle ensured that her clients stayed in 2 different areas in the awe-inspiring Okavango Delta waterways, so that they could maximise their water safari experience. She added on a trip to the  fascinating Savute region in the Chobe National Park for an incredible land based safari experience.  Guests stayed in Savute, Xugana Island Lodge on the Xugana Lagoon and Camp Xakanaxa on the banks of the Khwai River. Here is their feedback : Dear Janelle, our trip was genius, we had such a great time in Botswana! We saw 4 Leopards in Savute, 30 Lions with cups, and also Wild dogs in Xaxanaka, unbelievable! The Helicopter flight was amazing, Xugana Island impressed us really a lot, specially the friendliness of the staff there. But our favourite Lodge was Savute – Tao our Guide was so funny and really experienced. He gave us a pleasant time there. Dennis and Action are excellent hosts, all the team there is so lovely, we will be back for sure – in combination with Kalahari stay. Thanks for choosing the right tour for us and for your good advises! We keep in touch for our next Africa tour! Happy Greetings...

Client Feedback : Hwange and Victoria Falls

Michelle organised a Zimbabwe safari for her guests, ensuring they experienced the magnificence of Victoria Falls and the world-renown wildlife-rich Hwange National Park Hwange is a vast area with contrasting landscapes, which is why Michelle selected two lodges in very different landscapes. Michelle’s guests stayed at Ilala Lodge in Victoria Falls, a lodge that offers a private lodge experience and a wealth of activity options at the falls. In Hwange National Park, Michelle selected Deteema Springs, which is located on a rocky rise overlooking permanent water springs. The second choice of camp is Verney’s Camp, which is located on a large open floodplain. Here is the feedback :  Hi Michelle We have an amazing time in Zimbabwe thank you. Just settling back into real life that has been difficult! We loved all 3 places we stayed and found them all quite different to each other. Ilala offered a lovely touch of luxury and everyone there was welcoming and helpful. Our room was perfect and we could see warthogs and the spray from Victoria Falls from the balcony. Deteema was a very cute little safari camp. We really felt like part of their little family and they went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. Our first night we had the whole camp to ourselves and they put on a special romantic honeymoon meal for us. The first morning we were greeted with lion cubs in the camp – an amazing experience. It was probably our favourite camp for the atmosphere and friendliness. Everything was so easy and we didn’t have to think about a thing. We very much enjoyed the company of the other guests that were travelling in couples, but a large group of 10 arrived and they changed the atmosphere quite a lot – the group were quite overpowering in such a little camp so they may want to consider restricting the group sizes. For us it didn’t ruin the experience as we have such a wonderful private first evening, but their were certainly less animals around camp when the big group arrived. Verney’s was much bigger and although everyone was friendly, it was run more like a hotel than Deteema so the feel was luxurious but different. They have the advantage in terms of game viewing due to their location as we saw a lot more at this camp than at Deteema – so our favourite for animals! Our tent was also amazing – I think the whole of Deteema Springs camp could fit inside our own tent at Verney’s! We think the combination of all three was good, and probably...

Client Feedback : Lions Sands Tinga Lodge

Lion Sands Tinga Lodge is situated on the banks of the Sabie River in the game rich Kruger National Park. There is a high concentration of leopard in the area, and Tinga certainly delivers an array of predators sightings while out on game drive. This is the luxury lodge that Liselle chose for her clients, who were reward with incredible sightings AND a fantastic guest experience. Here is their feedback :  Hi Michelle- We absolutely LOVED Tinga Lodge! It was an excellent experience from beginning to end. Our villa was beautiful, our guide was wonderful, the food was delicious. We saw the Big 5 by the second day. We really couldn’t have asked for anything more. The convenience to the airport was fantastic. I will click on the link below and leave a review. Thank you for all of your...

Client Feedback : Romance at Simbavati Hilltop

Liselle’s clients wanted to do something ultra-special for their wedding anniversary, so came to Liselle for suggestions. Knowing just the place, Liselle quickly jumped into action and booked the loved-up couple a safari to Simbavati Hilltop. A romantic paradise in the heart of the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve. Hilltop is perfect for honeymoons and anniversaries. Here is her client feedback :  Hi Liselle, I hope you are doing well. I just wanted to let you know my husband and I returned from South Africa yesterday. Thanks so much for the recommendation for Simbavati Hilltop Lodge – it was fantastic! We saw so many fascinating animal interactions thanks to our awesome guide and tracker and couldn’t get over how often we were fed (and how delicious everything was). We also loved our accommodations. They also recognized our wedding anniversary with flower petals and candles in our tent one night and a romantic dinner which was a very special surprise. We just wished we could have stayed longer! Thanks again!...

Client Feedback : Vic Falls, Botswana and Cape Town

Liselle’s clients enjoyed a fantastic safari in key safari destinations in southern Africa. They also experienced the coastal splendour of cosmopolitan Cape Town, which meant that they got to enjoy a variety of landscapes. Shinde is located in a private concession in the Moremi Game Reserve, Lebala Camp is located in the Linyanti region, Chobe Game Lodge and Chobe Princess in the national park, Royal Livingstone at the cascading Victoria Falls, the luxurious Majeka House in Stellenbosch and the V&A Hotel in Cape Town’s famous Waterfront area. Hi Liselle and John, Apologies for the extremely late reply. We did enjoy our holiday and it’s a awe-inspiring experience for me personally. We saw so many animals and the accomodation and hospitality were out of this world. You can see a picture attached! By the way, I am going to pass your contact to a friend of mine and she may contact you for enquiries on possibly booking a trip. If you get any emails from somebody from HK who said she got your contact from Bess, please extend your great services to them! Best in regards...
