WHAT OUR TRAVELERS SAY

This trip far exceeded our lofty expectations. Words alone cannot describe the magic of this experience. 


Mark S.

Boat cruises on the river with animals on either side were exciting, quiet, peaceful and truly spiritual, all at once! My favorite thing about this tour as a whole was the absence of other tourists. It was private and personal. A totally fabulous experience!

Africa and its wonders must be experienced in person! Nature at its best! A photographer's dream come true.

Like everyone told me, I returned convinced this was the "Best trip I ever took!" 


Gwendolyn S.

If Africa is not on your bucket list, you need a new bucket! This trip should not be missed.
