For the animals shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete
than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses
we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not underlings: they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth.
~Henry Beston, The Outermost House
To say it in one word this trip was just ‘fabulous’, full of highlights in every sense; accommodation, food, animals, many elephants and lions and most of all lots of good company. Thanks for having shared the bush, explaining wildlife in a way that we will certainly be coming back to Kenya and learning about wildlife behavior. From the zebras crossing the river, the fishing, the lions catching the two zebras, the 20 lions nearing our tent, rafting, horseback riding – our trip was complete!
While we are home in the body, we have not quite made the spiritual transfer back to the states, our hearts are still in Africa, and you made it such a wonderful experience for us! Thank you for all your efforts! I came back to a desk stacked with problems and bills, and quite frankly don’t want to touch any of it…I want to go on a game drive!
Anthony, we all made it home safe and sound and all we can talk or think about is our wonderful trip to Africa. You were the perfect guide and went above and beyond the call of duty to make it the most memorable trip ever. I am having a hard time getting back in the swing of things over here…I keep wishing I was on a game drive or having a sundowner watching the sunset!!
My final malaria tablet was taken last night so I think the safari is officially over. Darn it! I can’t describe how wonderful I thought the whole safari experience was…from the great camps to the exciting game drives to the much missed sundowners and campfires. Thank you for sharing your love of the countryside and animals with all of us! I hope to be able to bring our whole family to visit one of these days! Stories and photographs do not tell the tale; to fully appreciate Kenya, one needs to experience Kenya.
It is a time that I will always treasure and you made it all possible. You are truly gifted at your job and made the two weeks extra special. I went on the trip with high expectations and you exceeded them. I only hope in the future we will be able to have you take our entire family!!! I would love for them to have a similar experience. You were so incredibly knowledgeable and were patient with the ten thousand questions. I loved seeing your home and beautiful family. Fiona was so gracious and kind. Your children are wonderful.
It truly was the trip of a lifetime, and that was in great part due to you, your impeccable planning and your incredible knowledge of your country and all it has to offer that you shared with us. We simply can’t thank you enough.
We could not have had a more incredible experience. Our safari truly exceeded all of our expectations and we are all upset that we are not still there. I almost find it hard to explain to people how amazing everything was from the places, the people, the wonderful food, and the astonishing variety of animals seen.
That was an incredible trip. It was certainly everything I had hoped for, and more. The lodges were superb, the wildlife was unbelievable, and the guide was the icing on the cake!
I want to thank you very much, on behalf of all my family, for the quality of the trip you organised for us, the efficiency and the professionalism of your organisation, and the quality of the contacts you had with all of us. We have done something which appears as “unique” for all of us .Thank you for that again.
It is impossible to describe the trip to our friends in a way that captures the real essence of the experience. This will not be our last trip to Africa.
Words are completely inadequate to describe our appreciation for our safari, it was perfect in every degree. We left Buffalo as four couples, with close ties who had walked through life together. We returned closer friends with greater understanding of each other because of this unique experience. My Holly has brought two groups to you and they have been the most exciting events of our 44 years of marriage. We have loved both because of the rare beauty of it all. We have truly been in the ‘Garden of Eden’ and have been guided by you who has shared this love of frontier living in such a professional way. In short you make a two week visit so personal so complete, and so rewarding that its uniqueness stands out by itself. You have the ability and skill to customize the trip at a moment’s notice to the desires of your constituency and to set yourself clearly apart from other safari groups. Your program is total quality and so the memory is lasting and complete.
