VISITORS' BOOK

What a pleasure to meet you, Rich and your lovely children. As you know from our dinner conversation we all had a fantastic African adventure thanks to your amazing itinerary. There were so many highlights pre-safari and then there was Tanda Tula. What warm hospitality and friendly atmosphere at this beautiful safari lodge. We saw all the animals up close, a bit unnerving at times, but such a positive intense experience. Our professional guide was intent on exploring the region for maximum animal viewing. It was such a pleasure to have the comforts of home while living in the African Bush. Many thanks for your attention to our African holiday. It is one of my favourite trips to remember.

I would like to thank you once again on planning our trip. We had a wonderful time. The lodges were very special, beautiful and friendly we never seemed to have enough time to really appreciate them. We had long days on the road doing the garden route but we stopped so many times, for photos,  cups of tea etc, we were never rushed. We loved the Swartberg Pass even though a little hair raising. All in all it was a real adventure, nothing like what me and Elisabeth have done before. Once again, thank you for your hard work, it is much appreciated .You are always my first choice in planning my African adventures. Until next time.

I want to say thank you for what you have done for us on our trip. It has been absolutely wonderful and fantastic. From the moment we arrived, everything has exceeded everyone’s expectations. The extra little touches you added, such as the dinner with you in White River, the bicycle tour, and then the vintage cars yesterday, have been unbelievable. Cousin Gerry appreciates professionalism and competence in his relationships. But you have been so much more than that. On a scale of 10, you’re like, a 25!!!! If anyone I know is even contemplating a trip to Africa, I’m going to insist they use you. I don’t see how things could have gone any better.

We cannot thank you enough for yesterday.  We have been having the trip of a lifetime so far but yesterday was truly very special.  It means so much more to see the real SA from the ground.  The township was lovely and it was fun to ride a bike for the first time in at least 15 years.  The kids at the after school program were so much fun and the program is outstanding. I felt very privileged to sit next to Ethne at dinner, she is a remarkable person and so warm.  And of course dinner was delicious and our hotel room spectacular.  But most of all we will leave being truly inspired by Rich and you.  You are Amazing.  Thank you so much! We hope to be back soon.

Thank you, thank you, thank you …. There is nothing I would change about this experience, it was perfection, and one of the best experiences of my life. It is certainly a taste for many more safaris to come, which I hope you will help us with again.

You were professional, always ready to please, you could be reached all the time and we all felt that we couldn’t have asked for a better consultant to our African Adventure. Every stop on our trip gave us a new wonderful experience and we just fell in love with South Africa. The dinner in White River with you and Rich was the highlight of our trip. What a special evening. If you are ever in Canada let us repay the favour.

Wow wow wow. Thank you so much for putting the most perfect trip together for us. You were so patient with us through the planning process and we appreciate the time you took to chat through all our options with our budget limitations in mind. Umlani was an amazing fit for us and we thoroughly enjoyed the rustic nature of the camp. Our breakfast with you and Rich in White River was fabulous … as we finally got to put a face to a name and we so enjoyed our time with you. Nkomazi was then the cherry on the top. Your best recommendation was getting us to book a couple days in that magical reserve. The camp exceeded our expectations and was definitely a treat even though it didn’t break the bank.

What a trip. We had an awesome time at Kambaku camp our guide Renias was wonderful making it an exciting and very informative time. We saw all the big five, along with many others and babies – rhino, hippo, elephant, giraffe. You can let Rich know that we missed the take down of an impala by a pack of Africa painted dog by mere seconds. I left your basket with the binoculars and books with Johan. The books came in handy as Steph read out interesting facts to the group when we had a lull in animal sightings. I think our future vacations will be hard pressed to top this one – unless of course, it is another trip to Africa. I hope we will see you and Rich in Canada one day – we’d love to play host!

South Africa – May 2018

Our itinerary started with the most magical safari with Nomad Safaris. Their camps are spectacular and the game viewing was incredible. What an experience. You suggested that we spend 6 nights in the Serengeti at different camps and 2 nights at the Ngorongoro Crater which was the best advise. The timing was perfect and we got to see different camps in different areas, meeting all the stunning locals in between. The cherry on the top of the trip was our three day add on to Uganda. It was a privilege to walk with the Gorillas and we have a new found respect for these incredible animals. We will return that is for sure. Thank you once again for organising everything.

First off, our anniversary and my birthday have never been celebrated so thoroughly.  The greatest treat was meeting your little family and having lunch in White River – thank you! What a wonderful send off to our first Safari. The game we viewed was incredible.  The trip in all was … spectacular.  Traveling together with the whole family was amazing and I feel so fortunate.

The whole trip was first rate. The safari was truly the experience of a lifetime for all of us. Our rangers were extraordinary. So knowledgeable and so generous with their understanding of life in the bush and their ability to show it to us. Cape Town and the wine country were stunning. A pretty perfect vacation! Thank you for your superb planning.
