WHAT OUR TRAVELERS SAY

David [my Country Specialist] made every aspect of my solo adventure comfortable and care free. This was a birthday present to myself and he couldn't have done a better job of making my whole experience memorable! I really loved the extra touches he put in by telling the guest houses I stayed at that it was my birthday. I received little gifts from everyone including a birthday cake and champagne from the hosts as well as little gifts from others. I even took a selfie with a Cheetah!
