“The local guide, Hildrun, is super. She’s friendly, knowledgeable, and tried very hard to please us and give the best of Europe to us.”

Annabella C; Milwaukie, OR

“Weather, for the most part, made our walks unforgettable. And alternate plans worked out by our guides made the day’s excursions great. Flexibility was key in this trip—alternate walks, choice of restaurants for meals on our own, and a fun group of travelers who liked to walk.”

Valerie N; Seattle, WA

“First game drive at Lake Nakuru was very exciting! Also loved the Maasai Mara, Crescent Island, Hell’s Gate, Amboseli, and Crater Lake were also great. I never dreamed we’d see so many animals. We had zebra and elephants right by our tents on two occasions.”

Jane M; Matthews, NC

“Of course, one of the highlights of coming to Africa is to see the animals in their natural environment. For me, an equal highlight was going to the three very different villages and getting a firsthand glimpse of their different lifestyles. The rain in the Maasai village allowed us even more time to talk with our Maasai host, which was wonderful.”

Michele L; Canby, OR

“Everything was truly an adventure. Hot air balloon ride, safaris – loved boating among the trees to see all the shore birds.”

Carol Y; Fairborn, OH

“Overall, it was an excellent experience! The guides were very accommodating and considerate! Scott was well organized and kept us moving in a timely fashion with kindness.”

Donna S; Corvallis, OR
