My highlight was Ruaha National Park; a raw, wild, unspoilt pocket of Southern Tanzania and the perfect terrain for walking safaris. I was blown away by my stay on Thanda Private Island. Azure waters, excellent water sports and a marine conservation programme that clients can actively take part in makes this somewhere to watch for 2018.
Botswana remains such a popular safari destination due to its diverse experiences. There are new areas opening up for clients to visit, exciting new camps and refurbs to some of our old favourites. I am very keen to see what the new offerings are so a visit in the New Year is a must.
"You really did make it a holiday to remember and thank you so much for everything you did to ensure this. I know it was all down to you and you are seriously good at your job!! Not knowing where we were going to, with little ones in tow, was a little daunting but we hadn't needed to be as everything was thought of for us and nothing was too much trouble when we needed something. You are the BEST! Thank you."
"Claire - thank you, words cannot describe the experiences we had in Kenya. You interpreted all of our wants and needs and it truly was a trip of a lifetime and something we will all remember for many years to come. Thank you for suggesting the walking safari, you knew we were unsure but are so glad that you persuaded us to do it as it did indeed end up being the highlight of the trip!"
"Just to let you know that we arrived back to Dubai and have our heads and memories full of amazing experiences… Kids and family absolutely loved their week and now Africa is also in their blood. Overall the trip was stunning and selection of camps and rooms perfect. Thank you Claire for everything!"
