Speak to an Expert


First of all, in a word, I would describe our trip as "perfect”! I must say that our guide, Po Po, was extraordinary. He made sure we saw the Big Five and he took very good care of us.

I want you to know that you did an amazing job setting everything up for us. All of our flights and transfers went on without a hitch. The Serena properties were just beautiful and very comfortable. We saw about 40+ species of animals, lions copulating, elephants with their babies, zebras on the run - I could go on and on.

Thank you very much for everything you did for us.
