What can I say...the safari was the most wonderful vacation we have ever experienced.
We have traveled a great deal, but this stands out as just fabulous. We traveled with the entire family grandparents, parents, and grandchildren. Each camp had a different flavor and all were wonderful. The food was delicious, the staff warm and accommodating, and the guides and trackers were extremely knowledgeable, taking time to answer questions and give special information on each animal, bird, plant and tree. We saw every conceivable animal anyone could imagine. Julie went above and beyond, checking every detail and planning the most memorable vacation ever! Everyone young, old, and in between were enthralled. Exceptional!!!

Julie literally made my safari dreams come true! She organized a trip to Kenya for me and my husband that far exceeded all of our expectations.
During the planning process, she asked us very specific questions about our wishes and interests and customized our trip based on our priorities, always making sure to keep everything within our budget. She booked properties for us that were in close proximity to wildlife reserves, for ease of game viewing. At each unique destination, the food was both beautiful and delicious, the service was exceptional, our guides and spotters were outstanding, and the wildlife was absolutely spectacular. We experienced all of Africa's Big Five up close, we encountered a pack of wild dogs, which is incredibly rare, and we watched the sunset with a cheetah and her five cubs. Julie was always attentive, detailed, and responsive, and she even followed up with us after our trip to make sure everything met our expectations.
Every aspect of this trip eclipsed my imagination. It was truly the greatest trip of my life!
My adventure in Zimbabwe was the trip of a lifetime…
From the second we stepped off the plane every detail was perfect. We were met with welcoming smiles by enthusiastic hosts. The knowledge and experience of our guides was top notch. They taught us about the local people & animals and were eager to share personal stories. Our safety was never in question and the amenities and meals were spectacular. I would recommend Julie to anyone looking for a life changing safari experience. I will be using her on my next trip!

We can't thank Julie enough for making all three of our trips to Africa,
including visits to Rwanda, Kenya, Tanzania and Zimbabwe, a smashing success. Julie's passion and knowledge for African safaris is easily felt the moment you begin speaking with her. Her numerous bush nights spent throughout Africa provides the foresight to build a trip around the things you want see to, all the while eliminating the uncertainty of did you book the right place. We can't wait to get back again for more life changing experiences to carry with us for the rest of our lives!

We couldn’t be happier in our choice to use Julie as our safari planner.
This was our first trip to Africa and we had a lot of questions. Julie’s vast safari experiences and wealth of knowledge were very useful in helping us decide when and where to go. Julie was very patient with us and made it clear that her top priority was making sure that we had the best safari experience possible for our budget. And she totally delivered; every moment of our trip was absolutely magical! Thank you Julie!
The trip to Kenya was a once in a lifetime experience for my wife and me.
Julie set up a trip for us to experience and explore several of Kenya’s unique wildlife areas. The food was delicious, the accommodations comfortable, the wildlife wonderful, and the wildebeest crazy. The experience of that wildebeest river crossing will forever be one of my most unforgettable memories. I give this trip my highest praise.
