Simply brilliant trip to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands
Easter break with two children aged 7 and 8.
Touring the highlands and visiting Otovalo market.
Staying at Sani Lodge in the rain forest - with an abundance of life and 24 hour sound track! Although our children found the rainforest walks a little challenging at times they loved the whole experience.
Luxurious and activity packed tour of the Galapagos onboard MV Eric.
Bushbaby planned a brilliant itinerary for us that encompassed Quito, the Ecuadorian highlands, the rain forest and the Galapagos islands. The staff are knowledgeable, enthusiastic and helpful. This is the second time we have used Bushbaby and on both occasions the holidays have been fantastic and memorable.

Bushbaby got the tempo just right for our family. Just the right amount of sight seeing and traveling with timely stops for relaxation. We stayed in wonderful hotels and our driver/guide was brilliant. Bushbaby picked up this booking for us at the last minute and were up against limited availability but managed to pull together the trip full of wonderful family memories for us.

So pleased you had a great time Emma, it was quite an adventure to share!
Half term break at Zighy Bay, Oman
We had a fabulous 8 night stay in this spa hotel in the middle of nowhere in a tiny corner of Oman. This is our third visit to this hotel. We all love the fact that we can relax from the moment we arrive. The private villas are luxurious without being too glitzy. I love cycling around the resort, the sunset yoga, and dining on the mountain. Fabulous place.
Once again Bushbaby Travel came up trumps, and booked for us a fabulous holiday with our family in Oman. A mall friendly operator who we feel really listens to our needs. Service is always efficient and attentive. Would not book with anyone else!
Winter sun in a luxurious resort
A great place to stay in October with plenty of activities but also space for rest & relaxation

Excellent help in booking and rebooking when a memeber of our party had an accident. Good advice on itinerary and properties.
Trip to South Africa; safari and then travel along the garden route stopping off at various places

Thank you for the kind feedback, we're so pleased you had a wonderful holiday!
They listened to our wishes and delivered high quality, expert advice.
Outstanding family holiday, surpassed our expectations in every way.
This was a family holiday for us and our two children aged 13 and 9. We had an incredible experience at Ants Hill, horse-riding safaris were amazing and the staff, hospitality and location were all outstanding. At Thakadu River Camp in Midikwe we had amazing game drives, and got so close to lions, giraffes, elephants,cheetahs, buffalo and rhinos, plus a whole host of other animals in the short 2 night stay we had, it was a magical experience for us all, again the hospitality here was fantastic. We then spent 4 nights in Cape Town where we took in Robben Island, Table Mountain and swam in the sea with penguins! Beautiful, stunning country, a true trip of a lifetime.
Every aspect of our trip was planned and organised by Bushbaby Travel, the level of personal service was impressive. They discussed what we hoped to do in our 2 weeks available, and were able to deliver this beautifully. We spoke to them over the phone several times, before booking and after, in the run up to the trip they answered queries we had very promptly and sent out very useful and clear information. The actual trip ran so smoothly, every transfer they had organised was on time and the companies they used were brilliant. We really did have the trip of a lifetime that we had hoped for.
Safari and beach - holiday-of-a-lifetime
We travelled on safari in Tanzania for eight days (Tarangire, Ngorogoro, Serengeti), then relaxed at the beach in Zanzibar for a week. It was unforgettable, and we enjoyed it more than we could possibly have imagined.
Bushbaby were very flexible, organised, helpful, friendly, polite and efficient. Cannot be faulted.

So pleased you had an amazing time!
South African safari and a beach week in Seychelles
Bush Baby Travel offered a very personalised service. They were very resourceful and knowledgable in helping to plan our family holiday. Their attention to detail was fantastic, and their advice spot on! Because of their help we had an amazing, unforgettable holiday, something we could not have planned independently.
Very special, once in a lifetime family holiday to South Africa and Mauritius
Our two week holiday took us to two safari lodges in South Africa and then to a gorgeous hotel in Mauritius. Bushbaby were spot on with the holiday itinerary and the choice of hotels suited the needs of our family perfectly. A relatively expensive holiday but actually great value when you consider how much we saw and did, and that we stayed in really top quality accommodation.
The operator really listened to what we wanted from our holiday and then put together an itinerary to meet our specific needs and preferences. The operator was also prepared to make suggestions and offer advise based on their own family holidays to the places we wanted to visit.
