“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!
