South Africa in spring with the whole family
“We’ve had a fantastic roadtrip! Our starting point was Johannesburg and we drove more than 2000 kms and stayed at nine lodges. We encountered pouring rains, fog, sunshine, all of it. We passed by cows, shacks, through mud and hundreds of school children. We drove through the wonderful Drakensberg, right into the Battlefields of Kwazulu Natal and did game drives in the Kruger NP, were in awe at the stunning nature in the Panorama Route. We chatted to many people of all kinds, did not watch TV for one minute, had loads of quality family time and enjoyed many hours of games and books… It was bliss. Thank you so so much!” Lees meer “South Africa in spring with the whole family”
Anniversary safari Kenia
“After 6 years of saving up, drooling over newsletters and the anniversary presentation of the safari, we set out with our club to Kenya. The expectations were high when we flew to Kenya with fifteen of us, but all those were exceeded by far. The program had everything we dreamed off and more! From a visit to the slums in Nairobi to the classiest of bars, from camping out in the bush to sleeping in a private mansion with a private chef, from rafting to chilling on the whitest beach we have ever seen, from rockclimbing to seeing animals up close and from hiking with Masai to cycling at Hells Gate National Park… It was an action packed, adventurous, cultural and nature packed safari, one to never ever forget! Thank you Wild Times for organising!” Lees meer “Anniversary safari Kenia”
Vietnam – An amazing Asian adventure for all of us
Our family safari was a big success – Tanzania
“With this e-mail I would like to thank you and your team for organizing our family safari trip to Tanzania and Zanzibar. During the first part of our trip we were together with our guide and driver Karato. He is an exceptional professional and knowledgeable guide and a very good and safe driver! We all loved him as he is also a very likable person with good humor! We have had a great time with him. Our family safari was a big success! We will never forget the nights in the tented camp in the Serengeti with lions and elephants around our tents; The Masai people escorting us to our camp in Tarangire with spears in their hands and the excitement after seeing all big-5 in one day! The logistics of the trip all worked out nicely and we would definitely recommend your organisation to family and friends.” Lees meer “Our family safari was a big success – Tanzania”
Kenya – a lifetime experience
“Cate and I want to thank you for making the vacation of a lifetime exceed our wildest dreams. From the time we connected in Nairobi until the time we left, our experience was exceptional. All of our needs at every camp were not only met but were taken care of with first-class quality, attention, and service. Each leg of our journey through Kenya seemed like it could not be surpassed, yet with every new camp we went to, the new adventure exceeded our previous one. Each new day just kept bringing on new fantastic experiences. Needless to say, this is a result of the itinerary you established for us. Our drivers and spotters seemed to be a perfect match for us. Their expertise in meeting my photography needs was truly amazing. Cate and I are so grateful for your incredible ability to put together exactly what we wanted in our safari and exceed our expectations at every level. From the time we landed in Nairobi we felt totally comfortable and pampered at every turn. Of course, when we return to Africa, as we will, without question you will be our choice for creating another unforgettable African experience. Wishing you all the best” Lees meer “Kenya – a lifetime experience”
Familiytrip Vietnam: it was great!
South Africa: Absolutely spectacular. Handing things over to the experts.
“All in all, it was an absolutely spectacular visit. We were truly amazed by the beauty and variety of South Africa; hope to return some day! I have never used a travel agent before, but this trip has convinced me of the wisdom of handing things over to the experts rather than trying to reinvent the wheel by doing it all myself. We could not have been more pleased by our experience. Thanks so much!” “Yes, sadly we have returned from our wonderful trip to South Africa. We were really very pleased with every aspect of the trip; every day was a delight, we saw and experienced so much (and ate like kings)! All of the guides we had were really knowledgeable, friendly, patient, interesting people. Mickie of the Cape Town office was cheerful, very resourceful and a great source of information. Vitalis at Lagoon Lodge and Ignatius at Tau Lodge were superb guides, both so knowledgeable about wildlife, and birds in particular (one of our main interests!). We learned a great deal. Bradley of Bikes and Wines was informative about wines, and great at tailoring the trip to his somewhat (very!) out-of-shape charges. All in all, we couldn’t have had a better set of guides. We were also delighted with the accommodation. Abbey Manor is a lovely guest house, in impeccable shape, spotless and charming. It’s also a good distance from downtown – you can walk down into the central district easily, and a taxi home is cheap. In Stellenbosch, we quite liked the Majeka House. The vineyards we visited, both with Mickie and with Bikes and Wines, were on the whole excellent (and we bought some nice ‘souvenirs’ as a result!) and the wine tastings were very instructive. The lodge in Hermanus is quite possibly one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. It is beautifully put together, with so many perfect finishing touches in the rooms; I really didn’t want to leave! The food is excellent and the staff is so attentive and thoughtful. The whale watching from shore was fascinating – the shore is beautiful – but again. The twice-daily safaris in Madikwe were fascinating, the food very good and more than abundant! Certainly one of the most memorable experiences was the visit to Robben Island. It is very well organised and managed, and the fact that the guides are former inmates brings the reality home. Everyone should be encouraged to visit.” Lees meer “South Africa: Absolutely spectacular. Handing things over to the experts.”
