Overall Trip Experience Rating: 

Countries Visited: 

So we are back, after a long, long, flight home. The trip was in all respects; fabulous. We had top notch accommodations, service, food and our guides were beyond wonderful.

Guide Experience Rating: Excellent
Guides: 

Can't say enough about Jeremiah and Francis, who knew everything about plants, animals, rocks, minerals and even the stars. They were great. Their knowledge and love of their country and it's riches was infectious. They both took special care to insure that I had my preferred food each night often in consultation with the lodge managers which was very thoughtful. They even made special "lunch bags" for me. I do know that Billy really enjoyed the food, which was excellent at all places.

Accommodation Experience Rating: 

Accomodation: 

Wilderness Safaris was impeccable in their service, hospitality and style. The lodges were better than pictured and our two nights camping was great, but made us realize how spoiled we had been.

The first trip part in Namibia we were with only one other couple, a lovely Swiss couple who we immediately liked and enjoyed.

On our Botswana trip we were along with our guide which was also great. At one lodge we were the only guests in Botswana (Linyanti Camp). It was a great place with hippos and elephants chomping in the Channel all evening…

AAC Trip Planning and Organisation: 
Thanks for a great trip...hope to travel again with you someday. This was our second trip with Africa Adventure as our very first African trip in 1993 to Tanzania was planned by you. I still have Mark's "Top Wildlife Countries" after all these years and fond memories.
