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...

Client Feedback : Mana Pools National Park

Having just returned from a safari experience of her own, Natasha knows a thing or two about the bushveld. Her first-hand knowledge means that she is able to carefully knit together itineraries suited to her guests’ needs. Natasha selected the game-rich Mana Pools National Park in Zimbabwe, and selected two remarkable camps for her guests : Kanga and Zambezi Expeditions. Here is Jodie’s feedback :  Hi Natasha How are you? We had an absolutely amazing time in Mana Pools. Our only downfall was that we weren’t there long enough! We both said 2 night’s just isn’t enough, the minimum should be 3 and we are both interested in returning in the future. The staff at both camps were courteous, knowledgeable, friendly and beautiful, they are a big part of the experience and it was so much richer because of them. The armchair safari at Kanga was incredible.  Being able to sit a mere meter away from elephants as they drink, getting the odd bit of mud flicked our way is something that we have loved sharing with our friends and family back home. It also allowed me to capture a picture of an elephants eye I have been chasing for a long time. Zambezi Expeditions was completely different and we loved it just as much. Lunch was interrupted by elephants feeding on the seed pods right next to the dinning tent. We had the opportunity of approaching Boswel (The elephant that rears back on his hind legs to feed) on foot and to approach lions on foot too. What a heart hammering experience that was! Our guides were amazing, they have a great understanding of the bush and the wildlife and we felt completely safe. Thank you for your help with booking this trip, we really had a great time. Have a lovely day Jodie...

Client Feedback : Nsala Safari Camp and Nambu Camp

Judging from their rave reviews, it appears that Natasha’s clients loved their safari to the Greater Kruger. Natasha booked 2 camps that are located in uncrowded, private reserves and offer an intimate safari experience. It certainly looks like she made the right choice when she chose Nsala Safari Camp and Nambu Camp for her German guests. Here is their feedback : Hi Natasha, Thanks for your email. It was AMAZING!! Nsala was very nice, we were the only guests at that time so it was very private. We saw lots of animals but the cats were hiding very well 🙂 Nambu Camp was different but beautiful aswell. Very kind people and just a perfect spot to be. For sure a place we want to visit again because now only the rhino and leperd is missing!! Umhlanga is well known to me as I am going there since I am a child, it was great as always. You organized a perfect safari holiday for us, we are so thankful!! For sure you will hear from us, and we will recommend you whenever we can. 🙂 Below you find a few pictures – thanks again and we‘ll hear from eachother soon! All the best from Hamburg, Wiebke &...

Client Feedback : Land, Water and Jungle Safari !

Liselle’s clients certainly enjoyed a varied safari experience across contrasting regions. Her clients experienced the best that Kruger, Botswana and Uganda has to offer. They were introduced to gorilla trekking in Rwanda, game drives in Kruger and water safaris in the Okavango Delta. Land, water and jungle – what more could you ask for from an African safari experience? Liselle carefully selected camps and lodges within her clients’ budget and time frame. Her choice of lodges was : Oddballs Enclave -on the Okavango Delta on the edge of Chief’s Island , Camp Moremi in the community run Moremi Game Reserve in the Okavango Delta, Nottens in the Kruger’s famous leopard-rich Sabi Sand, and Mountain Gorilla View Lodge on the slopes of Mount Sabinyo in Rwanda. Overnight stays at the Intercontinental and Kigali Serena were also part of their journey. Here is their feedback :  Liselle, A great big thank you for another fantastic vacation!!! Rwanda was wonderful, lots of gorillas and no rain while we were trekking.  Seeing our “family” at Oddballs was so much fun, we really enjoyed the dryness as we were able to do a lot of walking. Mike and Diana really enjoyed the trip, we were so happy that the animal viewing was spectacular.  Of course Nottens did a bang up job with our trip to Krueger proper and we were so impressed with Camp Moremi.  We are already starting to plan our 2021 trip….mobil safari?! Our anniversary in Rwanda was so special and our guide, Amiable, could not have been better.  Here is a photo of us with the flowers delivered on our day! Thank you so much for everything you have done… Kären & Chris Kelley xxxxx...

Client Feedback : Namibia and Victoria Falls

Liselle has a knack for arranging the ultimate African safari experience. Carefully she crafts the perfect luxury itineraries, ensuring her guests return time and again. She advised her clients to stay at Wolwedans Dunes Lodge in the remarkable Soussusvlei area in Namibia, and the family-run Bayete Guest Lodge in the world-renown Victoria Falls. Liselle combined their Namibia and Victoria Falls with a brief stay at the Belvedere Boutique Hotel in Windhoek. Here is their feedback :  Dear Liselle, Thank you very much for your email and for following up after our journey. We will begin by thanking you for all your hard work and suggestions. We had a wonderful experience in Namibia and Zimbabwe. We are so glad we listened to you and stayed at Wolwedans. The staff was very nice, professional, and paid attention to detail. In the restaurant special thanks go to Beatriz and Tabea for making our evenings pleasant. We would recommend Wolwedans to friends. As a matter of fact, I need to get in touch with Virginia Esposito as she wants to hear about our trip and possibly plan a trip to Namibia. Getting the car rental and driving from Windhoek to the Wolwedans proved that our sense of direction (with the help of GPS) is not that bad. Furthermore, wherever we stopped for refueling and stretch our legs, we found out that locals were very friendly and helpful. The hot air balloon and the view from it was spectacular and well worth getting up early in the morning to see the sunrise We managed to book a Sossusvlei and Deadvlei drive from the Wolwedans, and have to say that the drive and visit to both “valleys” were very impressive Overall, the lodge, with a suitable setting to relaxing and the while life around it (mostly oryks and zebras) made the trip extra special. While in Windhoek, our stay at the Belvedere Boutique Hotel was also pleasant. We liked that it was a small and laid back place but very professional at the same time. Toward the end of our trip, we found out that the Naankuse Lodge which is located between Windhoek and the airport offers day gaming activities. This lodge could also be an alternative to travelers before they begin their 4×4 trip to the dunes As for Zimbabwe, our plain ride was smooth, a representative from Wild Horizons was waiting for us, who transported us to Bayette Lodge. The setting of the Lodge is very pleasant. The rooms were simple but clean. We found out that Victoria Falls was more than the falls, we took a sunset boat ride of the Zambesi river and visited a...

Client Feedback : Family Safari to the Delightful Nambu Camp

Natasha’s clients stayed Nambu Camp in the Balule Nature Reserve, a camp that is fast becoming a favourite among visitors to the area. Personalised attention, fantastic atmosphere and exquisite cuisine are just a few hallmarks of this wonderful lodge in the Kruger. Even if there’s an issue, it’s tended to immediately. It’s all about attention to detail and prioritising guests’ needs, which Nambu excels at doing.  Here is their feedback : Dear Natasha Sorry for late reply, but I have been very busy in the last days… Nambu Camp was great, we have appreciated it a lot We have had only one initial problem with the family of three people because the space in the room was very little and the extra bed extremely uncomfortable (with inflatable mattress). Luckily the manager solved the problem changing their bed with a real one after few hours. In general we really enjoyed our stay, in particular all restaurant staff  and Ranger (Stewart) ,were extremely kind and helpful You can find some picture in attach Thank you very much for your assistance Kind Regards...

Client Feedback : Royal Zanzibar Resort

Natasha’s client decided to book their own safari holiday, but came to Natasha for advice about Zanzibar. After a careful process of elimination, Natasha settled on sending her guests to the Royal Zanzibar Resort, with an overnight stay at the Mount Meru hotel.  It appears they had an incredible time on Africa’s tropical island.  Here is their feedback :  Hello Natasha How are you? Yes all is good with us, have been back for a week now and still thinking how wonderful our holiday was. Thank you for all your help and your suggestions for this wonderful trip.  Zanzibar was a lovely way to spend the last week after being on safari.  We really enjoyed Royal Zanzibar Resort and were lucky to be upgraded to a lovely Ocean View Suite.  It was like a huge Apartment and really nice.  We had a day in Stone town then another trip to Prison Island and the Butterfly Farm.  Everything was wonderful so thank you again. I’ve attached a couple of pics for you. Regards Gillian...
