Client Feedback : Namibia Desert Dreaming

Michelle crafted the perfect Nambian desert safari for her guests, and its seems she exceeded their expectations. We had two sets of feedback – one from Wim, and then his daughter Carole. They stayed at Little Kulala in Sossusvlei,  situated deep within the Namib Desert, the oldest desert in the world. Combined with their stay at Little Kulala, they also enjoyed a true desert safari experience at Onguma Tented Camp, Mowani Mountain Camp and Swakopmund Guest House.  Wim’s Feedback : Dear Michelle, I am sorry for our late reply ! We have been very busy since we got back from Namibia… We’ve spend a wonderful holiday in Namibia. Personally I found the Sossusvlei with Death Valley one of the highlights. Also a safari near Etosha, where we ended up between a group of elephants, was memorable. Namibia is such a beautiful country, the many landscapes are unforgettable. In attachment you will find some pictures. The camps were super, with Little Kulala being my favorite. I would forget Swakopmund on a next visit to Namibia. Not really a top destination, certainly not for 2 nights. We will leave  a review on the website you referred to. Thank you again for the wonderful travel trip you have put together for us. We are already looking forward to the next one! Kind regards, Wim Carole’s feedback :  Hi Michelle, I totally agree with my father’s opinion. Namibia was sooo beautiful! The game was a little bit different then Tanzania, but the views were incomparable. We loved Little Kulala: the warm winds, desolate landscapes, beautiful dunes,… It was so impressive! I personally found the Etosha lodge a little bit less, as the staff were very shy and did not really create an atmosphere. I later found out that this hotel group barely employs women, which I found a little regrettable. However, the tents and the swimming pool were absolutely beautiful and we even saw a leopard at evening drinking at the pool A little practical suggestion: we did not succeed in following the D2865 until Namutoni gate. We missed a turn, so we ended up at the D3028. Maybe the turn could be stated more clear in the route description? it’s just a suggestion As my father says: we are already looking forward to our next trip Kind regards,...

Client Feedback : Family Safari to Botswana

Client Feedback : Family Safari to Botswana

Natasha’s clients enjoyed an incredible family safari to Botswana and they stayed at Chobe Game Lodge, Xugana Island Lodge and Camp Moremi. They sent through a bunch of their own photos taken while they were out exploring the wilderness.  Here is their feedback :  Hi Natasha, Apologies for the delayed reply, just trying to catch up with everything and getting reacclimated.  The trip was wonderful and very different from anything we’ve done in the past.  A truly amazing experience,  the people at all lodges were very friendly and caring and the animals incredible. Overall the lodges were unique with their own ecosystems and subset of animals.  We were fortunate to see all of the animals, including tons of birds, plants and trees that made a lot of photographic memories.  I think it was just the right mix, slowly easing us into more and more intimate experiences beginning with Chobe on through Camp Moremi.  Xugana Island was such a wonderful setting but I think the lodge could use a bit of renovation. Our favorite was Camp Moremi with regards to the animals, the lodge and the team there.  Food was fabulous everywhere and we didn’t have a care in the world.  Private dining might have been a unique experience and the only other comment I would make, but I understand logistics could pose some issues. Anyway, overall a wonderful trip with lifetime memories we have created.  Many thanks for your assistance and timely responses to our requests, we would recommend Sun Safaris to anyone. Happy New Year! Dennis and...

This is the place where elephants walk through the reception area! The Royal Livingstone is a classic, five star hotel that rests on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River.

Client Feedback : Winelands, Mozambique and Safari

Liselle’s clients enjoyed a fantastic combination tour highlighting the best of both beach, bush, winelands and a few geographical marvels. Their holiday included the coastal region of Mozambique, the winelands of Stellenbosch, the awe-inspiring Victoria Falls, and the game-rich regions of Botswana. More Quarters Cape Town Majeka House Stellenbosch Leisure Isle Champagne Castle D’Oreale Grand Chobe Bakwena Vic Falls Hotel Belvedere & Bazaruto Island Resort    Hi Liselle, Mozambique was super!! Truly made up for missing Namibia. We enjoyed all the accomodations equally, each had a touch of its own to the destinations we visited. Simbavati was however our clear favourite on the trip! We saw the big five at Simbavati on our game drives  and opted for just river cruises at Chobe. Simbavati was super as vehicles took it in turns for each sighting. Vic Falls was great! All in South Africa was perfect, driving was a great choice and all stops and accommodation was great. Leona loved Majeka House. All in all was a great experience, and we are taking back great laughs and memories besides the extra weight from all the full boards. Thanks to you and Brett  for the great service. We are More than willing to leave a trip advisor review should you have a page. Here is one or two pictures  from our trip. Will surely be in touch down the line on our next visit to South Africa!

Client Feedback : Botswana Safari and Cape Town Highlights

Liselle’s client, Allison Ohta, enjoyed a safari to the world-renown Victoria Falls and stayed at the historical Ilala Lodge. Her guests also enjoyed a memorable safari in Botswana at Tuskers Bush Camp in the Kwatale Conservancy, and Xobega Island Camp in the heart of the Okavango Delta. Her client’s safari ended off with a stay at the luxury Three Boutique Hotel in Cape Town. Hi Liselle, I just wanted to say thank you for helping me book my trip!! It was a wonderful experience from start to finish. The charter flight overland was a nice way to see the land from above and easy to even spot animals from above. The drive in between tuskers and xobega was worth every minute and probably the most exciting portion of our trip. TUSKERS: Tuskers unfortunately was too dry for many animals to be around, but the pond they service in front of the camp allowed for leisure spotting. And I was lucky enough to have spotted a leopard on our drive. The staff there are wonderful and for first timers, I still enjoyed it XOBEGA: Was a nice contrast, not much in variety of animals, but nice to see elephants in a different landscape. A bird lovers paradise. ILala was a nice location, and convenient for walking to the falls. In the whole of our trip we did not see any lions. perhaps I’ll have to book a trip with you to savuti next! Three boutiques: Was a lovely way to come back to the city. great breakfast, lovely staff. a nice neighborhood. I took a thousand pictures but these are two of my favorite from Tuskers. The elephant I swear was waiting for us on the morning we left the camp. It was a sureal moment as he lifted his trunk almost waving goodbye just before he quickly turned about-face and strutted away. The other is the leopard I spotted on the side of our jeep. He was relaxing calmly under the tree before realizing he had been seen, at which point you can see him on his hind legs slowly retreating. Thanks again, Allison Ohta Allison’s Wildlife Images...
