Hi Nikki We have been back for 1 week now... What an amazing trip we have had, everything went very smoothly, no hiccups at all. There was always someone there to pick us up and deliver us to the next destination. Both tour companies in Kenya and Tanzania were fantastic. We were very lucky with our guides we had, they were knowledgeable and always got us in the right spot to see the animals. We saw the most amazing game, walking in front and to the side of us. Every park offers something special in different ways, probably the one that we didn't rate that much was Lake Manyara National Park.. but Lake Manyara Kilimanjaro Lodge was absolute luxury. We were so lucky to see leopard three times and very close at three different parks. At Lake Nakuru we spotted rhino quite a few times and so close to us, which they all say is so hard to see. Botswana is so different to East Africa and so worth seeing. Absolutely loved Moremi Crossing Camp, the people there are were very accommodating.. Overall we had a fabulous trip and I've got the most amazing pictures and video. Africa is a magnificent continent with friendly people who make your trip very special. Regards Tracy Crowe

I just returned from a trip organised through This is Africa and I can't recommend them more highly. Everything was carefully and expertly arranged from start to finish. We were so lucky with our game viewing, jumping off the Elephant express and getting driven right to a lioness and her little cub - unforgettable! All our accommodation was beautiful and varied. A standout is definitely Nehimba. Having dinner or drinks on the deck while elephants drink from the swimming pool mere metres away. Chobe will always be an amazing memory for me as we were lucky enough to see a huge amount of animals but a lion and two lionesses walking past your vehicle is something you won't forget quickly. No matter where in Africa and what style you like to travel I would recommend This is Africa.

Amanda Brown Travelled May 2019 to Namibia, Zimbabwe & Botswana

Just returned from a 9 day Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia tour, as well as a short extension in Cape Town, and had the most amazing time away. I knew that it was going to be a once in a lifetime trip, but everything exceeded my expectations from day one. Every lodge that we stayed with was perfect, picking my favourite place is almost impossible! I could not believe the level of service that we received, from an entire team of staff waiting to greet us every time we arrived or returned to a lodge, to the waiters that could not be more enthusiastic serving amazing food and drinks, to the rangers that went above and beyond, even out of their normal working hours to ensure that the African experience that I had was the best ever. I've travelled to many countries and in many different styles of touring, and there are very few experiences that can compare to the fun that I had on this trip, the beautiful landscapes that I saw, and to the level of service that I experienced. Everything was seamlessly organised, and I'm already trying to figure out when I will be able to go back and travel again with This is Africa!

Caroline Bucknell Travelled September 2018 to Namibia, Zimbabwe & Botswana

I have just finished a 9 day safari and it was amazing! I didn't know what I should see in Africa and was guided by them and I saw so much more than I had hoped. I did water and land safaris as well as 2 days in a national park staying on a concession (which means they can go off road to see animals). I saw lion stalking prey, hundreds of elephants, buffalo, impala, Eland as well as giraffes, leopards, zebras, hippo, honey badgers (a highlight for me) and so much more (and lots and lots of bird species if that's your thing). All the accommodation was to die for, food was great, water safe to drink etc. Border transfers and crossings were really well organised and the safari guides were really experienced - I didn't have one question left unanswered (and I had lots of questions). Everyone was supper helpful and I felt safe and supported my whole trip! If you want to go to Africa then This is Africa are the people to book with - tell them what you think you would like to see and be guided by them. All their staff booking your trip have been to Africa so many times - they know what they are talking about and have experienced it as opposed to other offers that might seem cheaper but they don't have the local experience. Can't recommend This is Africa enough - i hope to go back but if not this was a trio of a lifetime!

I have just returned from a 9 Day Zimbabwe and Botswana trip and I could not recommend This is Africa enough. They were incredible from start to finish. The planning process was easy. I dealt with a knowledgeable agent who knew what she was talking about. Everything ran according to plan and I had the BEST holiday ever. I will be back to Africa and certainly booking with This is Africa again

What a great company to organise your Africa trip! Everything ran smoothly and was looked after from start to finish across 9 days. Each guide was knowledgeable and provided an exciting and engaging game drive. One a day is never enough! We stayed at some of the most luxe properties I have experienced and will find it hard to go back to a normal 4 star. I would highly recommend consulting with, and booking through This Is Africa.

After a few days now into our return from Africa and coming down from such a high generated from the experience we had as a family , we would like to say a very big thank you. The fantastic effort you put into the assistance , planning and guidance of our trip was noticeable before we left however the stand out is when all the flight details , connection of transfers between accommodation etc went so seamlessly then it becomes very apparent of the level of detail you conveyed within the coordination of our holiday. Again thank you. Regards Jennifer & Randall Twine

Hi Nikki, A huge thank you for organizing and delivering such an incredible trip to Kenya - Everything was absolutely perfect and so excellent! From the wonderful accommodation, amazing hospitality, great food, and outstanding drivers / guides, it was a brilliant safari and I speak for all my family and friends who attended in saying it was the trip of a lifetime, so thank you so very much, everybody cannot speak highly enough of the entire safari. The wedding itself was amazing, certainly everything I hoped it would be! The staff at Ashnil were wonderful and delivered a fantastic event that exceeded my expectations. Please find attached a few candid photos from the wedding day - I don't have the professional shots back yet, but as you can see, it was a great day! Thanks again Nikki, for all your amazing work putting this phenomenal trip together, I could not be happier. Have a very happy new year; Best Regards; Lisa.

Jenny Rhind Jenny travelled July/August 2017 in Uganda, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Botswana and South Africa

Hi Nikki I'm so sorry it has taken me so long to send these photos. Hope you like them. All were taken in the wild. (There are many, many more)! It was such a privilege to visit the countries we did, enjoy the culture, chat to the locals, taste the food and most importantly for me, to photograph my heart out with an abundance of wonderful creatures. Our guides were excellent - Joseph Lubega in Uganda deserves special mention. All the hotel staff were so very polite and very helpful.It really was the best trip and we all feel it was one of those 'once in a lifetime ones'.Thank you so very much for all you did to make this holiday (mind you, an exhausting one!) so special for the 3 of us. There were so many highlights, often many in a day! Such a vast difference to our lives here. So it is really hard to pick the best but the gorillas and chimps were simply amazing...fabulous.We will definitely recommend your company. Thanks again Nikki. Kind regards Jenny Rhind

Hi Nikki, our holiday is at an end and with regret we will be on the plane home tomorrow from wonderful Africa. Just a note to say thank you for a brilliantly organised itinerary. Everything went like clockwork and we have had a fantastic time. So many great experiences and animals saw lots of animals including the big 5 on the first day. The leopard was elusive but finally bagged some great shots. Loved Kapama, great lodge and right in the action, Cape Town was amazing as was Chobe and Vic falls. We are currently by the pool having a relax before we go and pack......yuk speak soon Bruce and Bev

Hi guys, I just thought I'd write you a note to say thanks very much for your help in organising my recent trip to Africa. Everything went off without a hitch and both my Mum and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Mum had some pretty high (and unrealistic) expectations of what we would see (leopard up a tree, baby elephant having a mud bath, a giraffe drinking etc, etc) but miraculously we saw all that and more! So thanks again for a wonderful trip, I'll definitely be recommending you to anyone planning a trip to Africa. Cheers Olivia Commercial Manager Flight Centre Travel Group

Hi Jodi I meant to email you weeks ago just to say, we had a wonderful time in Kenya. The Love Live Africa organization was excellent and we thought our guide was great. Despite my apprehension leading up to the trip with regards to security in Kenya, we felt very secure and well taken care of throughout the trip.So, thank you for taking the time months ago to get the addition information for me and your reassurance!CheersMelissa O'Neill (party of 4)

WOW!! I can't thank This Is Africa enough! I have just returned from a 9 day safari through Zimbabwe and Botswana and it completely blew my mind. The whole trip was seamless from start to end due to the amazing team putting together a fab itinerary giving us a bit of everything. We stayed at some of the most beautiful properties on private concessions, and on the water so we got to see all of the animals we wanted providing land and water based experiences and even got to visit a local village and school. The guides used were all so knowledgeable, excellent spotters, super friendly and really helped us to understand Africa better as a whole. For anyone wanting to have an authentic Africa experience This Is Africa is the way to go!

This is Africa is such an amazing company, I can't fault them at all! We just returned from an 8 night trip with them and it was the best trip I've ever had. Everything ran smoothly, the accommodation was amazing and the game drives were next level. When you're booking your trip, the staff from res are so knowledgeable and helpful. Don't go anywhere else to book your dream holiday.

Elizabeth and Roger Botteral Travelled February 2019 to Botswana, Zimbabwe and South Africa

THANK YOU. You did the most amazing job for us and we just could not have been happier. The was perfect, small, personalized, and it was great to meet other people for just a couple of days as different people joined for different parts of our trip. What you managed to arrange for us, especially with such a small time-frame, was just incredible. We had a blast and loved all the different tours. Roger noted that it was the best holiday he has ever had, so that is high praise indeed. Everything run like clockwork. The hotels were really good. The tour guides were great and the tours were a nice variety. We saw so much wildlife that in the end it was a bit ho hum that there were another 30 Zebras/elephants/giraffes standing next to the vehicle. It all seems surreal now. I think Cape Town and Botswana were my favourites. I even managed to catch a Tiger Fish (let's not mention the fact that it wasn't much bigger than a goldfish, and that I thought I had weed on my line). Anyway, thanks so very much. Ww can start dreaming about our next big adventure and have you plan it all for us. You were awesome and we do really appreciate all that you did for us. Kind regards Elizabeth and Roger
