“Thank you again for all your assistance, consideration, and overall awesomeness!”

Hi Nicole, 

Apologies for the delay, its been a busy couple of weeks back home!  We had an amazing time at Asilia Namiri Plains! Such an extraordinary experience from the hospitality to the game drives ( we also took a walking tour). 

On our final night in Tanzania we stayed at the Sea Cliff hotel (as recommended) and were upgraded to the presidential suite. We appreciate the recommendation!  Attached are some highlight reel photos from our trip.

Thank you again for all your assistance, consideration, and overall awesomeness!

“On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the best I give them 100!”

Just got back from a two week getaway to South Africa —Edwin and Lieze planned every thing and our trip exceeded every possible expectation! The trip consisted of two camps - Ngala Tented Camp and Sabi Sabi Little Bush Camp— 3 days in each; followed by two days in Capetown and two days at Babylonstoren in the winelands about an hour out of Capetown.

The safari was wild! We saw lions, leopards, Elephants Rhinos, buffalo, giraffe, zebra —the list goes on and on. We even witnessed 15 female lions wake up from a nap and then stalk and take down two buffalo...it was incredible to witness! We even saw 8 elephants walk up to the pool at Ngala Tented Camp and quench their thirst while we videotaped eight of them lined up side by side with their trunks in the pool!

Our guides were incredibly experienced and had tons of information that made our safari adventures beyond educational.

We had a fabulous guide in Capetown and had great fun seeing the peninsula and loved the beauty of the Cape Of Good hope....(hold on to your bags those baboons are quite mischievous!).  Babylonstoren was a fabulous winery/farm/hotel/spa- whose cuisine included all their own delicious wines, fruits, and vegetables—you don’t get better farm to table meals! The beauty of Babylonstoren is hard to put into words....better to Google it and best to go see it first hand!
 
The logistics were expertly handled by A2A Safari. We were met and transported to all airports and destinations by friendly competent drivers/guides who made the various connections during our trip flawless. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the best I give them 100!

A2A is a great company and took care of everything. It truly was a trip of a lifetime and I am forever grateful for Edwin and Lieze’s professionalism and expertise.

“Thank you again for all your help and diligence in the organisation of the trip. Everything ran smoothly and to plan”

We did have a wonderful holiday and thought the choices of location and camp were all great.  We've made a few points re Olakira in the survey but it did not detract from out overall enjoyment.  Asilia was a good choice of camp operator and seem to run things very well.  Thank you again for all your help and diligence in the organisation of the trip.  Everything ran smoothly and to plan.  The final day visit to the coffee lodge in Arusha was good, with a very nice setting for lunch then a guided trip around the plantation which we enjoyed.

“As expected, we had a great time in Zimbabwe...thank you again for making the arrangements!”

“All of the arrangements worked like clockwork!”

We worked with Lieze Engelbrecht and our vacation was memorable.  We spent six incredible nights in Botswana at two different lodges/Safari camps.  The game observing, lodging accommodations, food, flights and skybed, made this trip special.  Our overnight trip to Zimbabwe was to see Victoria Falls, accommodation, transportation and a tour was very enjoyable. Although we realized that the week in Botswana would not be inexpensive, we did not have unlimited funds.  Lieze was great in explaining what was possible and helping us achieve our objectives within our budget and bringing it all together to create an incredible vacation.  We did not know what to expect, but everything was seamless.

“The bad news is... well there isn't one! All in all, thank you for helping us celebrate our anniversary. It's been epic!”

The GOOD news is that my wife and I are back from the adventure, safe and sound, mentally and spiritually richer (pockets are a bit lighter but that's par for the course). The BETTER news is that your team, especially Chelsea, was instrumental in getting us on that truly magical adventure, and we never felt that we were in anything but the best hands, with Chelsea and everyone who was a part of our journey those couple of weeks. The BEST news is that we have strongly recommended our experience and your agency to anyone who cared to listen, once we got back to Singapore (and there was probably way too many people who indulged us in our sharing and regaling of stories)! 

The bad news is... well there isn't one! Every single moment that we had, positive or negative at that point in time (and it's really hard pressed for us to think of any negatives now), all contributed to the memories that my wife and I had created, and they are beautiful memories! 

Anyway, Chelsea did meet with us over the weekend and we have given her our download, our recommendations and some tips we found helpful for ourselves along the way. She even asked to look at our pictures, and we probably got too carried away sharing those pictures and stories with her, while her weekend wasted away!  Chelsea has been a significant differentiator for us in this trip. I will be remiss in my responsibility as a customer if I did not share this feedback. My wife and I are blessed to have Chelsea being a part of our milestone anniversary this year. I can only hope that we have not been one of those customers that form horror customers case studies! If we are, indulge us one last time, and keep us in the dark! 

All in all, thank you for helping us celebrate our anniversary. It's been epic!

“The service and food were superb! So good that we want to go back again”

Dear Kevin,

We had the best time of our lives there. Thank you so much for your arrangement and organized everything perfectly and smoothly. We received your note at Sabora. So thoughtful of you, thank you!  We have completed our big five lists the only one we didn’t get to see is the cheetahs!  However, we are so in love with the scenery, animals, and people there.

The service and food were superb!  So good that we want to go back again.

I have attached our favorite pictures for you to see how much happiness we had during the time there. Do you and your company plan for other places too? What else do you recommend for future plans? 

Thank you again for this wonderful time.

“Thank you again for arranging a really fun trip for us in Cape Town and Franschhoek. Can't wait to go back!”

“Every step of the way, someone was there to take care of me—something I appreciated as a solo traveler in Africa for the first time”

The entire trip organized by A2A was seamless from beginning to end. Every step of the way, someone was there to take care of me—something I appreciated as a solo traveler in Africa for the first time. Their choice of safari was excellent and I doubt I would have found it on my own. I’m sure that if I were to book a safari again (very likely, since this was like a gateway drug), I would give them a call.

“Then we saw a group of wild dogs steal an impala from a leopard who couldn't get the impala up a tree. Thank you for arranging this safari!”

Yessa!! We both super enjoyed. And the game viewing was fantastic. We had herds of elephants and a while pride of lions (female and male) walk right past us. Then we saw leopards with prey on top of a tree. Then we saw a group of wild dogs steal an impala from a leopard who couldn't get the impala up a tree. Thank you for arranging this safari!

“Our hats off to A2A for making the smooth arrangements and choosing the stunning accommodations that hooked these Safari virgins. We are still basking in the African glow”

Totally charmed by this place. I no longer fear leopards, cheetahs, lions, rhinos. Although it hasn't altered my aversion to lizards and snakes. 

Our hats off to A2A for making the smooth arrangements and choosing the stunning accommodations that hooked these Safari virgins. We are still basking in the African glow.

“We both had a wonderful time in Africa and would love to come back! ”

Thanks a lot for helping us plan this trip, we had a lot of fun! If only we could stay longer.. we need to save again to explore Zimbabwe and next time will make sure we bring better cameras.  Highlight was definitely seeing a lion chase down an antelope. Of course, the elephants in Linyanti were great as well!

We both had a wonderful time in Africa and would love to come back!
