Excellent

We went to two safari camps in Kenya which were both excellent (Lewa Wilderness and Little Govenors). We then went to the Seychelles for 5 nights. Our holiday was excellent and the programme organised by Safari Consultants was very much appreciated. All arrangments went well.

Safari in southern Tanzania and a week on Zanzibar

My wife and I had stays at safari camps in Ruaha and Selous in Tanzania then a week in a hotel in Zansibar. The arrangements were excellent throughout.

we visited chobe under canvas, selinda camp (great plains), chitabe lediba and duba plains (great plains)....our favorite was chitabe lediba. saw the most animals at chobe, very knowledgeable guide, stanza and great staff at the camp. selinda and duba were good, more upscale accommodations, fancier food, less animals (quantity) but really good guides (donald and stanley). chitabe lediba we loved the accommodations, food, staff and guide ...

jane walker was excellent in planning our itinerary. 4 different camps all with a different feel and experience, great variety and exposure for our first safari.

4 Safari experiences in one holiday

All the connections, meeting and greeting went like clock work. We stayed at Oliver's Camp, Gibbs Farm and Serian Camp followed by a few days in Zanzibar in the Breezes Beach Club. We would recommend all 3 as excellent in all departments. Beware the coast is normally windy and cloudy in July and August, but warm. Gibbs is very cold---fleeces needed. Tsetse fly were not a big deal. We recommend an overnight stay in Stonetown in Zanzibar town

Rob Slater spent a lot of time on the phone to us and we were very pleased with his recommendations. There is no substitute for personal knowledge.

Extremely well planned down to the smallest detail, we could not have done this holiday without Mary Grimwood.

A 'Once in a lifetime' holiday experience that could not have been improved upon. Three nights in Laikipia, Kenya. Three nights on The Mara followed by four nights at Diani Beach. All of an excellent standard of comfort and food, with wonderful staff. We could not have wished for better.

Helpful, knowledgeable and very well organised down to last detail. Kept us fully informed when Nairobi Airport burnt down 36 hours before we were due to fly home!

Family safari holiday in Kenya with our daughter,son in law and our 2 grandchildren ending with 5 nights in Zanzibar.

The 2 safari venues were superb and quite different in the terrain. Firstly in Laikipia , and then in the Mara. The grandchildren loved every minute and the safari guides were marvellous wth them, as were both sets of camp hosts. The food in both of the camps was delicious.The 5 days relaxing in Zanzibar after the busy time on safari was a perfect end to our holiday

The 2 safari venues were perfect and the itinerary that they organized for us was fantastic, and all the advice we were given was first class. The camps were small and very friendly and the hosts were so good with the children as were the guides. We could not fault a thing except for a little more sushine in Zanzibar, where we had rain and lots of cloud - but it was still very warm! Many thanks to them for organizing such a lovely family holiday.

Rob Slater of Safari Consultants worked with us to make an itinerary that perfectly suited us. Every transfer and connection worked like clockwork. The accommodation was perfect and beyond expectations. As was the quality of the guiding.
