Great Trip Perfect in all Ways

We just returned from a 15 day trip to Tanzania, Kenya and Cape Town all arranged by Born Free Safaris. The sights and animals were unbelievable. Alana and her team put together the perfect trip. All arrangements were spot on and we were met everywhere by personable and helpful guides.There was not one hiccup on the entire trip. They took time to listen to our goals and tailored the trip to us. Would use them again in a flash.

Trip Review - Tanzania

Alana Hayden and her staff were excellent to work with. They began by spending quite a bit of time just finding out what I was looking for in a safari. Once they understood that, they made some very excellent suggestions, which they allowed me to customize to exactly what I wanted. They helped me plan and execute a most perfect safari.

Thanks BORN FREE - it was a trip of a lifetime!!

seamless efficiency and flexibility in giving you the experience you want.

exceptional company. I had a situation where I may have had to cancel in the last month and they were willing to work with me. I went as planned.

The accommodations were even better than I expected, food good and our guide friendly and responsive to our wish list. By the end of the trip we had seen all that the six of us had wished.

It was a glorious trip and I would use them again without hesitation.

Trip of a Lifetime - Thanks to Born Free!!!

Born Free did an exceptional job. From beginning to end the service was above and beyond. Alana and her team listened to our wants and needs and delivered on all counts. She used her expertise to steer us to locations and properties that fit our needs and provided an optimal safari experience for the time of year. what an amazing experience. Our guides and contacts were knowledgeable, friendly, professional and detail oriented. From Mary and Benson in Kenya to Justin, Fabian and Moses in Tanzania we could not have been in better hands.

Amazing trip to Botswana !!

We just came back from our 10 day trip to Botswana. Deborah helped us put together the trip. She and her team were on top of every bit of details on this trip and made it go very smoothly. I will highly recommend Born Free Safaris to anyone planning to go to Africa.

Amazing Safari to Tanzania with Born Free Safaris

I cannot say enough about Born Free Safaris. From the time we contacted Alana and her staff they were with us all the way. We told her what we were looking for in an African Safari, the fact the I was an avid photographer and we wanted the "real" African experience. We told her the level of accommodations we were interested in. After that she went to work and came up with a plan. After some fine tuning we had our trip to Tanzania set to go. She held our hand - literally every step of the way. Everyone at Born Free is a true professional, answering all of our questions - and we had a lot!!
Everything on the trip went off without a hitch. We hooked up with Rashid of Mount Kilimanjaro Safari Company who would be our guide for 9 days. We traveled to Tarangire National Park, Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti. We were constantly amazed at his knowledge and his ability to spot animals from a far distance while he was driving. No question was too trivial.
On a 1 to 10 we rated this trip a 14!! The best trip we have ever taken - and we have traveled a lot. Our hats off to Born Free Safaris and Rashid at Mt. Kilimanjaro.

Personally the only thing we would do differently would be to not stay at Olduvai Camp. It was not our style. Others really liked it - we didn't. No plugs, animals scratching at our tent all night long keeping us awake. Maybe a fluke, but wouldn't do that again. Also probably didn't need 4 days in the Serengeti -2 would have been enough. Still loved every second of it though, just saw the same animals over again - but you never know if you'll see some situation that you haven't seen before. That's what's so interesting about a Safari!

So many things stand out it's hard to say, but watching 2 lions mate was amazing and seeing the wildebeest migration go on and on was fascinating. I could not get enough of the monkeys and baboons and my wife is in love with the giraffes. With so many photographs and videos, we will relive these memories for years to come.

Sept 2016

We just spent 15 days in South Africa, Botwana, Zambia and Zimbawe. Debra, from Born Free was our agent. She was a gift from heaven! She was never pushy or trying to sell us anything. She quickly foundout what our interest was and came up with a plan and itenerary. Then proceeded to help us with all our preparations. Visaa, pass ports, money, immunizations, ect. She left nothing out. The trip went perfect. We had NO worries. We had such a wonderful experience. Her advice and assistance was exceptional. She obviously was an expert and proffessional. If you are ever planning a trip to Africa, Debra should be your agent. I will be returning and She will definitly be planning my next adventure! Debra, Thankyou for making our trip so wonderful and perfect!

strong endorsement for Born Free

I can only echo what others have said about professionalism of Alana and staff, both in the US, in Tanzania and Kenya. The trip was without a hitch. Guide were knowledgeable about animals, plants and camera angles. Food was wonderful wherever we stayed. This recent travel was the second that Born Free has planned for me and I would not hesitate to recommend them.
