“There is no place like Africa. When I say this, I am not referring to the animals, or the people, or the beauty, even though that is true; there is nothing like it anywhere on earth. I say there is no place like Africa because of the way Africa changes a person. After my meetings with Debbie, Shelby, and Nick I was eager to experience Africa for so many reasons. I was eager to visit a place deemed magical by so many who had been on trips through SafariScapes. After only a few hours there, I understood. Through SafariScapes we had a once in a lifetime trip, but I’m hoping to come back every year. There is just no place life Africa.”
Love from Our Travelers
I knew our trip to Southern Africa would be the trip of a lifetime, but the reality exceeded anything I could have possibly anticipated. I was trying to explain it to a girlfriend of mine, and I told her it was right up there with the birth of my children, in terms of life experiences. By that, I mean it was magical, sublime and life-altering. Being hosted by Nic Turpin was fantastic – hands-down the best pilot, guide, wildlife expert, tracker, photographer, raconteur, sommelier, teacher, babysitter…the list is never-ending. I kept asking myself: “How can one person do all these things, and make it look so easy?” The kids truly loved him, and he was like one of the family after a few days. He anticipated our whole group’s needs and was always ready with a quick plan of action whenever it was called for. It was a very sad day when the trip was finally over and it was time to say goodbye.
SafariScapes set us up on the most epic South African Safari Honeymoon. All of our special requests from dietary needs to setting up a photographer to take shots of us in our wedding outfits in the bush was above and beyond. I would use them again for any safari trips in the future. Simply the best!
I cannot express my appreciation and admiration of my perfectly planned trip to Africa by SafariScapes. I have traveled all over the world and had even been to Africa, however I have never taken a trip alone, this was a giant step out of my comfort zone, I have to admit that I was nervous. I decided to give up my need to control and I let them do all the planning, I could not have been more satisfied! Every step of the way I felt completely safe and taken care of, every detail was thoroughly thought through, all I had to do was show up. As a single woman it gave me great confidence and I was able to immerse myself in my African adventure. What an adventure it was! I went to four of the most beautiful camps in Tanzania, all of them were so unique it is impossible for me to say which was my favorite, they all had something special about them. This trip changed my life and I will always give the credit to SafariScapes.
We have the priveledge to travel to so many beautiful places, but nothing like the experience we had with Safariscapes. We thought it would be a wonderful trip, but it was far more than we expected. Unusually well planned and our host was awesome. We can’t wait to do it again!!
A huge thank you for coordinating our trip to Zambia.
After completing our time with Family Legacy at Camp Life in Lusaka Zambia we thoroughly enjoyed our two side trips.
We started in Livingstone where we saw the Victoria Falls and enjoyed several days at the Toka Leya lodge. The land safari provided an opportunity to see the endangered white rhino. We saw many of them one afternoon including two newborns.
Our second adventure, on the Lower Zambezi River was equally excellent. We stayed at Baines River Camp and the experience was second to none. The accommodations, food, service and safari activities were amazing. We spent time and fishing for the elusive Tiger Fish on the river and many hours on land safari encountering every species in the region. The guides were extremely knowledgeable and taught us something new at every turn in the road. A timely Gin and Tonic along with tasty fresh snacks made each excursion that much more fun. The host staff attended to our every need. The room was remarkable and the bar and common areas of the lodge are picture perfect.
We appreciate you, SafariScapes, for attending to every detail of this trip from flights, ground transfers and even luggage storage so we would not be over weight on the 6 person plane that delivered us into the bush.
Thank you so much for taking such great care of us.
