Hi Vanessa, We had such a wonderful time. Thank you again for planning everything so well for us. We saw the circle of life, many times, the great migration (one poor wildebeest did not make it) and so much more. Met wonderful people. Dixon, the guide in the photo was our favorite (Sand River) but they were all excellent. (Drew, Dixon, Me, Dana). I really hope to go back some day. Have given your name to several people we met on the plane that may want a trip in the future. Have a wonderful weekend and please feel free to us me as a reference if needed.

How would you rate your trip overall? Excellent
What was the most important reason for choosing AFRICAN PORTFOLIO? Other
Please Specify Travel companion did the research to pick the company
How many safari companies did you consider before selecting AFRICAN PORTFOLIO? None
What additional information (if any) would you have liked to receive prior to your departure from home? none , Vanessa answered all our questions
How would you describe your accommodation, facilities and meals? Please provide the name of the hotel, lodge or camp you are describing. The 5 Elewana properties were beyond our expectations,
Loisaba, Starbeds, Sand River, Serenghti migration camp and The Manor
What and where was your favorite meal of the trip? All the meals were excellent, hard to choose but lunch in the bush at Migration Camp and breakfast in the bush at Sand River stand out.
How would you evaluate your safari guides and staff? Please provide the name of the person you are describing. All four of our guides were excellent. Their knowledge was impressive and they went beyond the expectations.  Peter, Dixon, Alex and Allan were fabulous. Dixon and Allan especially made our experience so wonderful, their passion for animals and their knowledge and kindness really stood out, howerver the others were just as good. Dixon and Allan had personalities that were a great mix with ours.
Was there anything you would have liked more of, less of, or done differently? I would have allowed for a little more “down time”.  Especially at The Manor, really did not have time to enjoy the amenities at the property.  The schedule was our choosing but next time, I’d schedule in an extra day.
What was your most memorable moment in Africa? The Circle of Life.  We saw so much, Leopard killing warthog, crock killing wildebeest, vultures, just the entire existence and ecosystem working together.
If you could give future travelers one word of advice, what would it be? To allow for down time, we were exhausted every evening.  But so fabulous, did not want to change anything.
