Thank you for your feedback
I just wanted to let you know that my safari was fabulous. It was everything I could have wanted and more. The accommodations were superb , the people at all lodges and camps were wonderful, and the game was plentiful. I had to be restrained from jumping out of the vehicle to pet the lion cubs (just kidding) Thanks for arranging all this for me. Cathy
Hello Simon,Things have finally settled down here and I need to let you know that our daughter, Judy said our Africa experience was "magical" and we whole heartedly agree with her.Ernest and I want to thank you for your expertise, vision and profound grasp of what we wanted. We could not have asked for more. You told us our guides would be amazing and they were. We had Victoria from Nomad (whom you very well may know) who was an absolute fireball and knowledgeable beyond belief. She immediately got that Jake was a bug nut and provided him with enough information to sate his little entymologist soul. He so wanted to get "into" a termite mound and Victoria made it absolutely clear why he did not and he totally understood. She got us through some up close and personal dealings with elephants and "retired general" buffalos. We loved her and wanted to bring her home with us (as you predicted would happen). David was our guide in the Serengetti and he was fabulous in a different way - quiet and unassuming but full of knowledge and we loved his Masai soul (wanted to bring him home too). It was with David that we experienced the life and death struggle between a Tawny Eagle and the Spitting Cobra. Had he not said, "let's wait a few minutes" we would have missed the whole thing.Everything from the bucket showers to the French Press coffee made the accommodations the experience of a lifetime and we cannot wait to get more. We left part of our hearts on that magical continent and we so need to go back.We have not one complaint and we thank you so much for your help in putting this very special experience together for us. I especially appreciated your help when I learned that my mother had passed and we needed to cut our trip short by 2 days.We are so glad we found you.Thank you again,
Simon, On behalf of my family, I want to thank you for everything you did for us in planning and organizing our trip to Africa. I can’t even begin to explain to you how perfect our trip was. We knew the trip would be great but the places that you found for us, the arrangements you made, and the companies you used were absolutely amazing. In addition to that, every single place had special little things for Case and went above and beyond to make sure he had things that he needed and that he was included. In Cape Town, the 12 Apostles Hotel was beautiful. They were not full so they upgraded our rooms at no charge. Our tour guide was Suleiman Soeker and he was absolutely fantastic – would highly recommend him if you can request tour guides. We were able to go to Robben Island because of the level of waves in the water; but, he worked with us to find some other great things to do – including the #1 rated coffee shop in the world. I don’t drink coffee but my parents do but their hot chocolate was delicious! Also, they had a little kids size cup and they made Case some hot chocolate with a little bulldog face. It was the perfect start to the trip to be able to see a lot of things but also get used to the time change. Cape Town had a special feel to it and I’m glad that we were able to go. Sabi Sabi was our very favorite part of the trip. The lodge was indescribably beautiful. Everyone was extremely friendly. Our guide was Bethuel and our tracker was Zulu. They were absolutely phenomenal. And they were so great with Case. We would absolutely visit this place again if we ever went back. The food was great, the people were great, the experience was great (I mean – they had hot water bottles in the cars in the mornings and in the beds at night!!! WOW!). We saw so many animals and they tried to make sure we saw a wide range of places on the reserve. I just can’t even put into words how much we loved it! Livingstone was good because we enjoyed seeing Victoria Falls and going to the Village. One evening, my mom and I went over to the sister hotel of the Avani and they were a little friendlier than the hotel we were at. The Avani was beautiful but the staff were definitely the least friendly of any of the hotels we were at. Also, this hotel doesn’t have any sort of heat in the rooms and it was chilly enough at night that it needed some. We asked at the other hotel and they do have heat in their rooms. So, if we went back to this area, we’d probably rather stay at the other hotel. I think it was called The Royal Livingstone. But, the price point may be entirely different. I don’t know. But, the guides we had for Victoria Falls and the Village were great. Getting to the Serengeti was an experience . We enjoyed the Serengeti and we were glad that we were able to have two different safari experiences. Everyone was nice at the camp. We ended up being really glad that we scheduled the things to do in Nairobi because we had a fantastic time. The elephant orphanage was a great experience. We found out that our elephant had been moved to another location because he was getting older – so, if someone else does the same thing that we did – we would recommend making sure they adopt one of the youngest elephants. We’re not upset at all and Case understood why we couldn’t meet his elephant. But, just giving you a heads-up. We still enjoyed meeting all of the elephants that were there and learning about their stories. Carnivore was absolutely delicious and a great experience. We all really like it a lot. Just wanted to give you a quick summary. But, we just cannot thank you enough for this amazing experience. Several people have asked who we used and I gave them your contact information/website. If you have any other questions or want any other feedback, please don’t hesitate to ask. We’re happy to help/give feedback/recommend you to anyone! Thanks again –
Simon, Thank you for all of the work you put in planning our trip. It was amazing. Everyone loved every part of it. We really appreciate the fact that you took care of every detail. We will always cherish the memories.
Simon,The itinerary you put together was excellent and the venues were superb. I want to especially thank you for arranging the upgraded accommodations at Mala Mala. We were able to see the Big Five in one day. The very first game drive at Mala Mala we had lions all around our Land Rover. If I didnt know any better, I could have petted a lion as it walked by the side of the vehicle.This trip exceeded our expectations. You will come highly recommended among my network of friends who were in awe at the pictures we are sharing with them. Mary only took 5,000 pictures over the course of the trip. Digital cameras make it so easy to get carried away.Your experience and knowledge of the various camps paid off and your recommendation for having a private guide in Cape Town was spot on. We had the flexibility to stay longer or move on more quickly with the tours in the Cape Town itinerary.All the best,
Andre, the trip you planned with Intrepid Expeditions to Tanzania and Rwanda was simply exceptional. In addition to my incredible guide, Max, and a well paced itinerary, you set up some of the best game viewing imaginable....and the migration hasnt even begun to move yet...I am coming back to see them up north. Rwanda and gorilla trekking was simply out of this world. How do we save those precious guys. I will be booking again and thanks for everything. Kim and Jeff.
I wanted to thank Andre and Intrepid Expeditions for planning my Namibia trip. I have traveled to different parts of the world many times, planned by myself, and I thought I did not require the services of a travel agent. Andre, you proved me wrong and you certainly made Namibia come alive with your attention to detail, out of the way and unique excursions, knowledge of the camps, and your obvious and close parnership with Wilderness Safaris. My highlight was Luderitz and Serra Cafema...what incredibly beautiful, remote, and majestic places they are. As we discussed you are planning our next safari to Zimbabwe as I will be looking for those close encounters while walking with your guiding friends. I cant thank you enough Andre. Kind wishes. Mary and John.

Andre is a true expert and demonstrated the utmost patience, flexibility and customer service in helping me book an unforgettable safari vacation for my wife and I for our Honeymoon.\r\n\r\nI worked with several other top-ranked professional safari travel agencies and companies (as ranked by Fodors, T&L, Tripadvisor, etc), and none of them came close to matching the professionalism and attention to detail Andre put forth. While other companies simply sent a PDF and a quick 15 minute call that often felt like they had 4 other calls lined up behind it, Andre took the time to ask what I was looking for and explain the various options until I was comfortable letting him put together an itinerary for me. \r\n\r\nExpecting another PDF, I was blown away when he came back with a fully customized, private web-based itinerary complete with links to the properties, reviews, countless images and a detailed itinerary almost down to the hour. Andre then worked with me to fine-tune the itinerary and was extremely flexible throughout the process, even when I accidentally booked flights a day in advance he was able to set up lodging for us to accommodate. The best part of the web interface Andre created is the ease with which you can share with your family and friends. \r\n\r\nThe trip was amazing, especially the tour guide Andre set up for us. His name is Titus Kivuyo, he works for Ranger Safaris and is by far the most professional, knowledgeable and personable travel guide I have ever met. Titus knows every single aspect of the flora, fauna, terrain and inhabitants of the Serengeti plain and virtually every other facet of African wildlife. Beyond that he is an amazing person who made our trip truly special. \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n

Andre put together a top notch safari experience for me. He listened carefully to what I looked for in a safari, provided clear information and a range of options, and provided clear and regular communication. His materials about preparation and documentation were thorough and well constructed. He was always available for questions and assistance.
Andre\r\n \r\nThe trip is amazing thank you so much for putting it together for us. Many more details to come but I think my wifes parents want to take a similar trip. Words cannot express how spectacular our guide, Titus Kivuyo, was in making our safari an unforgettable experience. When we are back stateside we would like a to write a more formal commendation for him.\r\n \r\nWe are flying out tomorrow for a few days in Amsterdam because 'why not' and then attack real life again on Tuesday. \r\n \r\nCheers,\r\nBill W.
