K. Glazier, Spain 2017

Everything was amazing.  We had such an incredible trip, it surpassed all expectations.  Everything with Kwando safaris was perfect.  The lodging, the food, and especially the game. All our flights were on time and transportation between camps and at the beginning/end of the safari all went very smoothly.  The only (very) minor thing was that while in Victoria Falls we were told we would be contacted by a driver to let us know what time we would depart for Botswana. When we didn’t hear from them ended up having to email Dave to help get in contact with the person who would be driving us to Kasane.  In the end it was all good, in fact it speaks highly of all of you at African Odyssey that even while we were on trip, we were still able to get support and you were able to help us sort things out. Everyone that we have been in contact with from African Odyssey has been helpful, professional, and  knowledgeable. We will gladly recommend African Odyssey to our friends and we sincerely hope to book another trip in the near future.

K. Rushbrook, NZ 2017

We have just arrived back in NZ this morning….tired but pretty happy with the whole trip. The highlights had to be the safaris at Ruaha and Selous, but the time at Echo Beach was also pretty special. I really wanted to say a huge thankyou for the arrangements which went pretty much like clockwork and the selection of places to stay was inspired!. We were incredibly lucky with the guides we had at Kwihala and Sands River……they were excellent and we simply could not have asked for better. We really enjoyed Andrew and Sue…they are a couple of characters who managed to make our stay quite special…Andrew even baked a cake for our wedding anniversary! Coastal aviation were great…the only slight hiccup was the flight for Zanzibar to Dar was cancelled so we were rebooked on another carrier whose name I forget….they also ran late and had the worst plane I have ever been on, except for Air Nuigini…..it was horrid, but Coasteal did meet us in Dar and made sure the Darby’s made their connecting flight. Just so you are aware, we did not  use the transfer from echo Beach to Stone town………we did a spice tour and got dropped off at the hotel as part of that. So, thanks again for arranging a superb holiday…we loved every minute of it and your organisation could not be faulted….e would have no hesitation in recommending you to any other travellers

A very happy new year to you. Just wanted to let you know that we had a great time over new year! It was wonderful being back in Zimbabwe and then Vumbura Plains was utterly magical .. best camp we’ve ever stayed at! Saw tons of game, including lion, leopard, cheetah and a wild dog kill! Spectacular.

Kathleen and I are back from Tanzania. Trying to recover from our travels and acclimate back to my time zone has been a challenge.The trip was absolutely wonderful and getting back to work has been not so much. Thanks for much for all your guidance on the safari locations and providers. We were totally in awe of how wonderful the accommodations and service were throughout our stay. The trip was quite well orchestrated. I am just beginning to sift through all my photos and now my husband is quite jealous he didn’t go along with us. Hmmm. Seems that planning another trip would make sense.

Thanks again George – the trip was amazing

We had a fantastic time in Tanzania & much appreciate your input to the planning – everything was excellent. Ikuka was a particular highlight for us – it’s a fantastic place with special people – we’ll be going back there sooner rather than later. Baraza was great for my fussy eaters – they were happy to accommodate requests (& the family did actually try a few new things!!!). Was happy to recommend you to Simon, everything you did & recommended was spot on. Another friend & his family is also likely to contact you in the near future, to book pretty much what we did
