Thanks to an amazing team

Our time in the bush and going on the game drives was spectacular! We saw all five of the big game animals: African elephant, leopard, lion, Cape buffalo, and Black rhinoceros. Witnessed the wildebeest migration along with herds of zebra, elephants and impalas. Our driver Salim was amazing as he traversed nearly impossible roads because of the rain. He was knowledgeable about flora and fauna as well as spotting animals in the wild. He could identify any creature be it winged or footed. 

Fred had a reaction to the anti-malaria medication, but fortunately we were at Lake Manyara Serena Lodge, where Dr. John Maswabe was attending. He was able to quickly identify the issue and treated Fred in our room. Administering an IV to rehydrate and followed up several times to assure he was improving. It was a highlight for Fred as they sat and chatted, he learned of Dr. John's dream to have a clinic within his home tribe. 

Because of COVID-19 our visit to Victoria Falls was cancelled due to closed boarders and cancelled return flights. We are most grateful to Meggan and her team at African Travel, Inc., John and Erick, Salim, Mohamed and Leopard Tours for securing our flights and transfers and getting us to the airport in time! Erick went above and beyond by staying at the hotel and sleeping in his car to be sure he would get any flight changes in a timely manner. The time difference from Tanzania to California made it so his office was closed in Arusha and information would not arrive in time. Erick was relying on the hotel to get the information. 

We can't thank all who made sure we arrived home safely! Thank you.

African Travel planned an amazing experience!!!!

We were delighted with every aspect of our travel...from Cape Town to Botswana. Sabi Sabi was beyond our expectations!! The staff, our immaculate accommodations, delicious meals (Chef Dick) and of course our knowledgeable trackers (Candy and Zeb) & rangers (James and Fred) made this a trip of a lifetime! Seeing the big five and tracking leopards, lions and cheetah were a few of the highlights!

Victoria Falls and Livingston were incredible! Loved fishing on the Zambezi River. Chobe Sanctuary has friendly and welcoming staff, immaculate accommodations and wonderful rangers and guides. They introduced us to herds of elephants, splayed giraffes, hippos, crocodiles and so much more!!!!

We highly recommend African Travel, Inc. and all the places they chose for us!!!

Trip of a lifetime to Kenya & Tanzania

Just wanted to let you know what a great job Mirlin has done in planning our trip of a lifetime to Kenya & Tanzania. We have ended up with a group of six and all are excited and can’t wait for next February for our safari to start. 

We are so thankful that our son Jeff G. steered us to your organization and we will be happy to recommend African Travel to our jealous friends when we return with our pictures and stories of our trip.

Best regards, Dave & Barbara H.
