Travel reviews by Mr & Mrs R from Surrey


Our trip was eveything we hoped for

On this trip, I visited Botswana & Namibia between 30-Jun-2016 and 21-Jul-2016 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Tracy helped us put together a wonderful trip which we thoroughly enjoyed.

Her advice was invaluable, particularly for journey lengths and camp/lodge choices. This is the second trip she has arranged for us and was as enjoyable as the first.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

We cannot think of anything that could have been done better - all arrangements worked perfectly

A brilliant, trouble free trip

On this trip, I visited Botswana & Namibia between 3-Sep-2014 and 7-Oct-2014 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

After spending months planning our trip and then refining it with Tracy, it more than lived up to all our expectations. Everywhere over our 3,500 trouble free kms driving ourselves around Namibia and 32 nights of luxury tents and lodges in the most wonderful parts of Namibia and Botswana we were met with warm welcomes, friendly smiles and staff and guides determined that we would enjoy what they had to offer. The arrangements Tracy had made worked smoothly, our flight transfers in Botswana all went to plan.

Everywhere we stayed, we wished we could have stayed longer.

We were particularly impressed by Wilderness Safaris wherever we met them - as agent, lodge operator or transfer operator.
