My May 2019 trip

On this trip, I visited Kenya & Rwanda between 16-May-2019 and 24-May-2019 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Our trip was absolutely fabulous, from the accommodations to the food to the experiences!

Maruska is simply phenomenal; she goes above and beyond to answer all possible questions and to ensure each client has the trip of a lifetime.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

The only suggestion I have with respect to trips to Rwanda is to provide a bit more guidance on the tipping etiquette. While the information provided on the website was quite helpful on the amount to give the various folks involved in a successful trek, my husband and I didn't realize the number of folks involved in each trek, and therefore, didn't bring enough USD.

It would be helpful to note how many rangers, trackers, etc. to expect on a trek (on average) to assist with this element of planning.

Memories to last a lifetime

On this trip, I visited Botswana & Zambia between 26-May-2018 and 11-Jun-2018 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Maruska organized a vacation for my husband and me, and her expert knowledge and prompt, informative communications were invaluable, ensuring a painless and memorable experience from planning to booking to actually embarking on our trip.

The fact that our trip was as seamless and amazing as it was is attributable to Maruska--we cannot thank her enough for such an incredible trip!
