TRAVELER TESTIMONIAL

The trip was fantastic. Everything went very smoothly. It exceeded our expectations. Botswana in particular has been on our list for a couple years.

Cape Town was great as well. We enjoyed the accommodations and the guides were great. We would definitely travel with Lion World again and have our eye on Kenya.

Thanks again,
Stacy & Dennis K.
