Just to let you know……… The trip was fantastic, loved it. We saw so many animals, the ones people spend ages looking for were just there waiting for me to take pictures of them. Got charged by an elephant, not something I want to do again (ever) but what an experience. Got surrounded by wild dogs, multiple cheetah and leopard sightings, saw a lion kill, and just an endless list of other sightings, took over 1,000 pictures. The lodges were great and if I had a criticism at all it would be that the original order of the trip would have been better (we started in Vic Falls and ended in Nxai pan but originally it was planned the other way round) having said that, we enjoyed every place we stayed but moving through the lodges to Chobe and ending at Vic falls might just have flowed better. Food and hospitality was great everywhere, Pom Pom was our favourite but that was probably due to the great management couple that were there. Thank you so much for arranging the trip Regards Paula

Travelled on the Masai with Southern Palms Just wanted to say how much the four of us enjoyed our safari and beach holiday. It proved far better than our expectations in many ways. We saw many animals at close quarters, including lions and cheetahs. Only the leopard evaded us! We even saw the start of the wildebeest migration, much earlier than usual! The camps were great especially the substituted Ashnil, which was tented and magical. The hotair balloon was wonderful - expensive but worth every penny as from it we viewed thousands upon thousands of wildebeests making their way in single file from group to massive group. What a spectacle! Not so obvious from the ground. The Southern Palms Beach Resort, a very good hotel to choose, was very welcome after a week of early starts and bumpy rides. The staff were wonderful and we were able to completely relax, in spite of a little heavy rain. Certainly we were right to go All Inclusive there. It was the trip of a lifetime for the four of us and one we shall look back on with great pleasure for many years. Thank you so much for your very useful advice and for organising the trip for us Sorry I haven't written this before but we are moving house in 6 days time so we've been rather busy since our return on the 6th! Have a good summer yourself
