Leslie Family, USA. 2019

Just wanted to thank you both for what was a wonderful trip.    This safari was something my wife, in particular, had dreamed of since she was in grade school and it far far surpassed anything we could have ever hoped for.

The accommodations, staff, and guides at all three locations (Kuro, Crater Lodge, and Serengeti Safari Camp) were all outstanding and the service top notch.  Obviously, this was expected to some extent due to their higher costs than some of the other options, but every single person we came in contact with went above and beyond to ensure our stay was enjoyable and really made us feel like “family” which we certainly did not expect to that degree.    My wife was on the border of tears every time we said goodbye to the staff and guides and moved to the next location.    The Africa Odyssey team really did help us have a more wonderful and spectacular “anniversafari” than we could have ever dreamed.

I would not hesitate to recommend Odyssey or any of the three lodges/camps we stayed at.    Kuro, however, was our favorite, primarily  due to the rustic, yet more permanent nature of the camp, the smaller crowds in Tarangire and the experience of sleeping at night with a dozen or more Impala, Zebra, Waterbucks and giraffes grazing just outside the tent walls.    Truly an experience neither of us will never forget.

All of the transfers went smoothly and I certainly appreciate you coordinating that balloon safari for us on relatively short notice.

We went into this thinking that this trip would be our once in a lifetime safari, and now can’t wait to make a return trip to visit Kuro again, plus perhaps Selous or some of the smaller more remote Western parks.    When we do, we will most certainly contact you to help with the arrangements.

All of the pre-trip information and documentation was spot on and was more than enough to ensure we packed sufficiently and properly for the trip.    The only thing I might add (perhaps I simply missed it) is that blue and black clothing particularly attracts tse tse flies.    Wasn’t really an issue as I only had one pair of black trekking pants that I simply just didn’t wear while in Kuro, but probably wouldn’t have packed them had I read that in the packing do’s/dont’s list.
