I just wanted to sing the praises of Safaris.com on providing an amazing trip for my husband and me. We wanted to do a bucket list trip and needed help making it everything we wanted it to be. I also wanted the assurance that all our selection from hotels, to guides, to tours would be premium. Had I planned this trip on my own I would have worried around every corner about my selections. Having that peace of mind while we were on our trip that everything would be superior was a very big comfort.
We wanted to go to South Africa primarily for safari. What was great about Safari.com services was they offered several different options all of which sounded amazing. We selected two options out of six and al a carted our trip. The options they provided were things I knew nothing about. The hard part was narrowing down the list and picking the things that were the best fit for us.
The paramount of the trip was being on safari. My husband is a wildlife enthusiast and I am an animal lover. I knew I would love being with the animals but I never knew what kind of profound effect it would have on me. It is hard to explain how being with the animals on their turf watching their behavior and seeing how they are with each other is different than any other way you have been with animals. We had the privilege of watching a mother cheetah with her cubs that brought tears to my eyes. On one ride we were literally in the middle of a pride of lions. We watched as the pride cared very deeply about a cub that was caught up in the bush. Every lion waited patiently for the cub before they moved on. I could go on and on. I feel so grateful that we were able to have this amazing experience.
I really can’t imagine planning this trip on my own. When it comes to an important trip to do right I highly recommend using a very knowledgeable company like Safaris.com that can steer you in the right direction. It was so nice having the peace of mind that all our accommodations were going to be superior. The camps we were at had very seasoned, knowledgeable guides and we felt safe at all times. I don’t think I would have had that security had I selected the camps on my own. What was also nice is we had two different safari experiences. One safari was in a private reserve and the other was in a national park. That difference was something I don’t think I would have thought to do on my own. One more thing worth mentioning because it was huge to us is we were never left on our own to navigate for ourselves. At every stop whether it was at the airport or hotel we had a driver waiting for us that knew our itinerary and knew where and when to get us to our next destination. AWESOME!
My husband and I said repeatedly on our trip how glad we were that we enlisted the services of Safaris.com. I am confident our trip was made exceptional because of their guidance.
