Ebola in Africa16 Oct 2014

I recently read an article written by Great Lakes Safaris Uganda providing extensive information about the Ebola outbreak and threat.  I thought it was very well written and very interesting.  I have asked Great Lakes to allow me to publish their article here, and they are very happy for me to spread the word.Although the article refers to to East Africa and specifically to Uganda, the...Read More...
 

Work Life Balance10 Oct 2014

Isn't that the simplest notion - divide up your time, equally, amongst the areas in your life that require attention - apportioning it happily across family, friends, work, charitable works, sport, excercise and health, leisure time and your career.HAHAHAHAHAHA - what a joke.  It is just about impossible to achieve.  There simply aren't enough hours in the day.  And, for goodness...Read More...
 

Walking with Lions10 Sep 2014

Walking and interacting with wild animals is an amazing and profound experience.  There are so many options - petting cheetah cubs, or lion cubs, visiting animal sanctuaries, with the possibility to pet the exotic creatures that live there.  Recently, I visited a cat sanctuary and the highlight was petting the fully grown cheetahs.  There must have been at least 50 people in the...Read More...

My wife and I selected Elizabeth as our southern Africa travel advisor after "interviewing" many others. We've travelled extensively throughout the world and wanted an independent travel experience to Africa.

Over a period of 14 months, with Elizabeth's input and assistance we planned the perfect trip.

During our trip, Elizabeth and her support team were very helpful when a couple of things went wrong with our resevations (hotel/lodge mixed up resevations).

Of particular note is that Elizabeth kept in touch after the sale was closed and payment was made.

Throughout the planning process, communications were clear, professional and filled with personal inight and humor. Pricing was always fair and transparent.

We wholeheartedly recommend Elizabeth! She'll work with you on meeting your travel and budget requrements and provide you spot on advice. That's what she did for us.

– Great Job Elizabeth!, USA

Our South Africa experience was truly outstanding, all aspects exceeded our expectations.

The natural beauty of SA, as well as the learning experiences we had (hearing people’s attitudes toward Mandela, the open discussion of racial history by everyone we talked to, etc), SA food, inexpensive but good wines. All contributed.

A wonderful driver... very knowledgeable about everywhere we went, able to answer our questions.

The hotels you selected were just perfect for each city. Being near the water and walking in Port Elizabeth, the view from Villa Africana in Knysna, etc etc. each hotel seemed matched to the city.

The route and various stops you selected were great.
It was all good. We’d recommend you to friends coming to SA.

Elizabeth,

I have travelled all over the world with my kids. This was by far the best trip
we have taken. The weather was great, the hotels were amazing and the food was halal in almost all the places we stayed in. However what made the trip so enjoyable were the people - everyone was so friendly and accommodating.

You know I love photography but there is a problem with the pictures I took - a huge problem! I have so many amazing pictures that I can't choose which ones to blow up, submit to a magazine etc. I spoke to others and showed my pics to those who have been on other safaris and they are shocked. After spending much more than I did they felt they had gone to an amazing zoo - nothing like my experience.

I would like to thank you for making this once in a lifetime experience live up to and beyond our expectations.

Regarding our trip, let me tell you that was wonderful, well planned considering the time and all
locations to be seeing, were fantastic. Thanks for taking care of my trip and all the nice advises.

– Franco - Fantastic!, Libya

Hard to believe only a year ago we were enjoying the wonderful tour you put together for us. We had a great time and appreciate so much all your hard work on the trip. You did a terrific job and after a year of reflection, we all agree that this was the best vacation any of us have ever been on. Each of the camps provided a unique experience and we loved all three as well as Cape Town and Victoria Falls. Thanks again for a job well done.

I contacted more than 50 travel agents during my six months. Each one was a frustrating experience until my Canadian colleague recommended you and I found you in the Durban office. Please forward the name and email address of your office manager or someone at your head office.
The service industry is a challenging field. I always like to recognize exemplary agents and you possess all of the attributes!
Thank you once again for making all of the arrangements for my dream vacation!

– Maureen, Canada

I don't remember if I have ever told you but you must know that this is our 6th trip on SA, and 5 out of 6 have been managed by your company.
Well, every single trip has been really great without any kind of problem.
Moreover Renata and I have had the privilege to know and meet a lot of person working for your company, all of them extremely kindly, competent and professional, like you.
We love so much SA, and you and your colleagues let us enjoy the best of SA in a very relaxing way.
For us that is absolutely great.

Good morning Elizabeth,
I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for your assistance with our safari plans. My son, Patrick and I had a wonderful time! The setting and accommodations were perfect. We saw many animals and some very interesting sites. The food was outstanding and we enjoyed every minute of our stay.
I very much appreciated your assistance with flight recommendations for my son which worked out perfectly.
I will recommend your company to my friends.

– Eileen, USA
