Hi Sam,

It was a great trip and experience, thank you!

It will also take me a while to get all the animals and vistas sorted in my memory banks ūüôā

Kindest regards,

Hey Sam,

My parents had a fabulous time and had nothing but great feedback to share! They loved the properties, animal sightings, etc… they had a hard time getting on the flight to come back!

Hi Dave,

Apologies for my delayed response.

We had an amazing trip! Everything went smoothly and we saw so many animals! I was excited to see the cats Рlions, cheetahs and a leopard! We got to see a wildebeest calving and a baby gazelle’s first steps. Sol had a great introduction to Africa!

We liked all of our guides! The staff at all of the camps were great. The food at Dunia was the best of the camps.

I just finished my Facebook posting about the trip and will post some of my favorite photos on Instagram as well including you.

Hi Sam!

You have been on my mind, especially because we are so happy and grateful. In sum, it was the trip of a lifetime! Honestly, everything we could have hoped for and more. I would go back in a heartbeat‚Ķ Thank you for all your attention to detail, pacing, guides, hotels, transportation, etc. We did not have a single problem the entire trip. Truly AMAZING! […]

Leaving was a sad day…. Truly, it was a trip for the ages. We are so grateful to you and our team. You have this whole experience down right, and you helped us reach all our goals, including wildlife, history, beauty, adventure, and immersion in local culture and life. I wouldn’t change a thing!

Hi Sam

We had a wonderfully relaxing spoiling time on Fanjove. We were looked after beautifully, the food was delicious and our villa was kept spotlessly. Charming staff are always there to help.

We snorkeled twice a day and saw so much, we had the most amazing dolphin trip with dolphins spinning and leaping all around us and a lovely sunset dhow sail.

Our travel out and back went faultlessly.

A pretty perfect trip!

Thank you for organising it all.

Dear Sam

Had a wonderful time in Kenya. Both lodges are very good and the wildlife viewing is excellent. Very green everywhere as lots of rain before we arrived.

Features four cheetah cubs playing and five lion cubs also playing. Also huge herd of buffalo 500 approx quite incredible. Elephants in Amboseli are fantastic, never seen so many together with the backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro.

Many thanks for arranging the itinerary so well.

Kind regards

Hi Sam,

We arrived home on Monday after a very long journey.  Our experience in Uganda was phenomenal.  We agreed that the itinerary you put together was great.  Starting with the gorillas in Bwindi allowed us to get over any anticipation and anxiety so we could relax after that. Spending time with the gorillas was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that’s hard to explain.

The other locations were excellent for viewing all the game and we enjoyed the lodges.  Ishasha was our favourite for the accommodations, food, and most of all, the lovely staff.

Thanks for your help.  We will definitely recommend you and Africa Odyssey to anyone planning a trip to Africa.  I will send you a photo of our group taken at Ndali Lodge.

Best wishes,

Hi Dave,

We had the best time. The staff could not have been nicer. We were surprised how quiet it was. Weather was great for us! Thanks for helping us with the trip!

Hi Sam!!  We had an incredible trip.  Thank you so much for the amazing itinerary.

The safaris were absolutely incredible.  We saw everything and more Рthe guides were the most amazing hosts and guides and we built a great relationship with them, especially in Olakira and Singita Рthey were so informative, over the top nice, kind, and really made the trip exciting.  Highlands was a very fun lodge, with good food, Caroline was amazing.  Crater was a good first stop Рa bit far of a drive, but we were also able to do a Masai visit which was very nice.  Olakira Рwhat can I say Рthe best reco.  Incredible experience, amazing team all around, Christian was the best driver, Zach was the best host, the tents were beautiful, and game viewing was incredible РI am so happy we did this, we were definitely on the fence but your reco was the absolute best.  Singita Рthey are the best of the best Рtrue luxury travel, better than Four Seasons Рthe room was insane, so nice, beautiful.  Amazing food, facility was off the charts РRichard the host was absolutely wonderful, Jafrod our driver was unbelievable Рnice/knowledgeable/funny made the trip really incredible.

we thought the trip was absolutely incredible, especially the safaris, and your recommendation on Olakira was incredible Рone of the highlights of the trip and so happy you pushed us to do that!  We loved working with Africa Odessey and are 100% recommending you to everyone we know and hope to be a repeat traveler with you Рi just hope the above will help the next people traveling!

Hope we can stay in touch and hope we can plan our next trip soon!

Hi Sam,

Both places were lovely.

Fanjove isn’t for everyone. At least in December/Jan, it’s incredibly hot in the rooms.

It is worth selecting a room that set away from the vegetation in order to benefit from some breeze into the room.

The island is beautiful though. Good for families.

I would rank the One & Only as the Worlds best hotel. It is incredible place with great attention to every detail.
