Wow! What a sensational time I had! Thank you for putting together such an interesting trip for me, and a huge thank you for the seamless travelling I had – I was absolutely dreading getting myself from A to B and was beginning to think up lots of reasons why I couldn’t possibly go, but to my enormous relief the moment I stepped off one plane there was someone to guide me towards the next ! Elephant Watch Camp in Samburu – what a joy! I had a magical time here. The first day it was just myself and one other couple who moved to Scotland, and who we used to see a lot of! We had a great evening with sundowners in the middle of a dry riverbed, accompanied by staff dancing, jumping and singing for us, completely uncontrived, followed by dinner. As you know, the rooms are stunning, the food utterly delicious and the whole experience is a joy to the senses. Anyway, I can’t thank you enough for taking so much trouble in arranging my trip, I absolutely adored every moment and it gave me the confidence to travel again – in fact, I can’t wait to plan for my next trip and was excited to see that you include the Galapagos which has been on my hit list for a long time!

Dear Nicola, Jonathan and all at African Explorations.
Ali and I just wanted to thank you for the incredible honeymoon that you put together for us. It truly was a holiday of a lifetime in Kenya and Zanzibar – and here’s photographic evidence! Thanks also for the lovely photo album and bird book – that was totally unexpected and a thoughtful gesture.

Finally I put pen to paper! I just wanted to let you know how delighted we all were with the fabulous safari you organised for us to Tanzania. Right from the start, you made a good impression with your very informative and well produced itinerary. It certainly whet the appetite! We were very happy with our charming and knowledgeable guide, Moses, who looked after us so excellently – smoothing over minor hitches like mechanical problems with great efficiency and aplomb! All the accommodation was fantastic and very comfortable – ‘Out of Africa’ with knobs on! We were also very agreeably surprised by the standard of cuisine. I have recommended African Explorations to anyone who is thinking of going over there and I certainly hope to be able to go to India with you some time in the near future.
Very best wishes to you all,

This is just a quick note to thank you for all your hard work in arranging what turned out to be a holiday of a lifetime. The fact that we were made to feel so special on our honeymoon by all the camps that we visited made the experience so much more memorable. Thank you. Namibia is truly a wonderful country with some of the only remaining genuine wilderness in the world. You were so lucky to have been brought up there. I cannot thank you enough for all your efforts. Elizabeth and I will certainly remember this for the rest of our loves.

I am sorry it has taken so long for me to write to you, but I firstly wanted to thank you so much for your lovely flowers – what a wonderful thing to return home to, but secondly, to say that this is probably the finest African holiday our family has ever had together – and that takes quite some beating, as you know as Rupert used to live in Africa!
Thanks to African Explorations, our family trip to East Africa was the trip of a lifetime. With children ranging in ages, they listened to everyone’s needs and managed to fulfill each of our dreams. I highly recommend African Explorations to anyone seeking an outstanding, customized adventure.

Enclosed is a copy of Melanie’s journal from Africa. Although it is a bit long, I thought you might enjoy reading it. Its just such a perfect description of our trip through the eyes of a 15 year old girl. Thank you for putting this trip together so perfectly for us. As you will read in Melanie’s words, it was the ideal safari for our family

I am delighted that I stumbled across African Explorations at the Scottish Game Fair and that you convinced me you were the right people for organising the honeymoon. The fact that you were so well informed of the safari experience and the material you sent was so comprehensive, gave me great reassurance that I was putting this very important holiday in the right hands! However high my expectations, they were surpassed by every place we stayed and I very much hope we will be able to explore some of your other recommendations with you in the future. Many thanks.
