Absolutely amazing from start to finish.
We could not have been happier with our trip, the guides, and the three Safaris we were on. Each reserve had its own unique style of
accommodating my daughter and I and two of our friends from Seattle joined us in Johannesburg to begin our journey. We were met the moment we arrived until we left on our plane after 17 of the most amazing days of our lives. The food, the people, the animals and a beautiful country. I would return tomorrow if given the chance.
our first stary for 3 nights was at Hlosi lodge below Port Elizabeth in the eastern cape. Two safaris a day, excellent food and a luxury tent with our tub facing a large window where wart hogs and others enjoyed a water break.
Second part was Elephant Plains in Sabi Sands, part of Krueger National Park. There are no fences and the animals come and go out of the reserve and into the park. Within 20 minutes Darren and Derrick, our guide and tracker found a leopard and her cub, it was my daughters birthday and her dream to see big cats. Ker & Downey delivered in every way with planning our trip.
Last stay was Simbavati River Lodge where large cats, lions walked through our compound and the elephants came within 10 feet of our porch to roll in the mud and teach their babies how to eat and drink.
We ended our trip in Victoria Falls, a must see if you are going to South Africa.
Thank you for reading, there really aren't enough words to describe this trip.
Phenomenal African Safari Adventure!
Sarah and Pippa were excellent! Great suggestions for everything and both were very flexible with us. It took us a while and many iterations to finalize our time in Africa. It was awesome! The whole experience was perfect. The four of us agreed this was our best vacation ever! Thank you, Sarah and Pippa!
Amazing Experience for a First Time Trip to Africa
Sarah and Pippa at Ker & Downey really took care of everything. It first started with understanding our previous experiences and level of comfort about traveling in Africa (incidentally, we've been on every continent, except Africa). They also wanted to understand what was important for us to experience and if we had any particular needs. I have to admit that I did have a panic moment when I had to wire a large sum of money to a company in Africa that I have only interacted via internet. Alas, everything was fine. As for the experience itself, Botswana was amazing and everything went smoothly. And, while there was a small glitch in Zimbabwe, it was great to know that Sarah was just a text away.
All in all, it was an amazing experience and Ker & Downey can take a lot of the credit for it.
Perfect safari arranged by Ker & Downey Africa
We have just returned from a spectacular three week safari in Tanzania and Kenya arranged by Emma Perrin at Ker & Downey Africa. I have been to East Africa a dozen times, and this sarari was the best ever. Emma crafted the perfect trip tailored to our specific desires. I am a nature photographer, and Emma maximized our wildlife viewing and made sure that my camera equipment was accomodated on all our light aircraft transfers. Her attention to detail was simply amazing, and all arrangements were executed perfectly during the entire three week safari. She answered all questions we had and kept in constant communication with us, from the time we first began arrangements until after we returned home. The accomodations and tented camps Emma recommended were steller. I lost a small sunglasses case somewhere along the way, and Emma miraculously had it delivered to me by our transfer driver at the end of the safari. The safari was so wonderful that we are booking the same itinerary for next year with 12 friends. After this experience, I am a Ker & Downey customer for all future travel to Africa and I highly recommend them to all my friends. Friends of mine have already booked a trip to South Africa in November with Emma and have thanked me for recommending Ker & Downey because they are so happy with the trip Emma has arranged for them and for her outstanding service. If you are planning Africa travel, you can't be in better hands than arranging your trip through Ker & Downey Africa.
From the very first emails until the end of our trip we had full support from K&D
