Dear Marc and Julian,

Terry and Katrina have emailed to say that they had a fantastic trip and very much enjoyed the whole experience. They loved all of the resorts and thought they were of a great standard, (they didn’t mention anything about Rocktail being too long). The only thing they mentioned that might be worth passing onto Wilderness, was that the guide at Mombo was extremely unfriendly to the children, ignoring them for most of the time. However this was just a small aspect of the trip and they saw the rest of it as a huge success.

Thank you so much for all that both of you did and all the hard work going backwards and forwards, it was a pleasure working with you both.

I’m sure we will speak soon.

Kind regards

Dear Mark

Very many thanks to you and Julian for organising such an outstanding holiday for us.   As mentioned on the phone, all of the little things that you organised, such as people to meet, greet and organise flight transfers, made a huge difference – and all of your recommendations were exactly as described.   Of most importance, however, has been the truly outstanding service and attention both you and Julian have offered to my wife and me – where frankly nothing seems to have been too much trouble.

I have already been asked by 3 different groups of friends as to who had helped us organise this very special holiday and I have unreservedly recommended your good services – and will continue to do so and hope it results in plenty of business for you.

Kind regards

Thank you so much for organising a wonderful trip for us to Zanzibar and the Selous this December.  We were so impressed with the way you accommodated our last minute changes to privately charter all our internal flights and of course to divert disaster when our international flight was so delayed and we were faced with missing our safari altogether.  We have since decided that next time we will do the safari at the end of the holiday as we would have been too exhausted by the travelling to have enjoyed it at the beginning.

Ras Nungwi was wonderful and the beach really does beat anything Mauritius has to offer.  We loved the fact that although luxurious it was also laid back and didn’t insist on jackets at dinner.  In fact we didn’t put a pair of shoes on the whole week!

The Selous Impala Camp was definitely the highlight of the trip.  We adored everything about the camp – the staff and management were wonderful and we saw all the animals we wanted to including lions.  Two nights is not enough and next year we will have at least four…….we are already thinking about our return!

Anyway thank you for being unflappable and making those last minute changes – I think if we wanted to go by elephant you would have been able to arrange it.

Kind regards,

Dear Marc

My husband and I have just returned from the trip to Tanzania which you booked for us.  We would just like to say how pleased wwe were with all the arrangements.  Everything worked like clockwork and the choice of hotels was perfect.  The only slight disappointment was the Arusha Coffee Lodge, our choice.  The cottage style rooms are excellent and its grounds and situation are wonderful, but it seems to be in need of a bit of care and attention, towels were a bit tatty, service was slow.  Maybe it needs more enthusiastic management.  However, it was not a serious complaint, it just did not  measure up to the excellent service we had at Ras Nungwi, Kiruruma and the Serena Lodges.

The choice of Roy’s Safaris for our trip to Manyara, Serengeti and the Crater was excellent.  All  the arrangements worked well, we had a comfortable vehicle, a very friendly and knowledgeable guide and when we wanted any extension of pre-planned activities they were happy to oblige.

We will definitely recommend your organisation to any of our friends thinking of visiting Tanzania.

Yours sincerely
