“One year later and this little one still asks me "when will we visit Nicole and Simbavati?"”

One year later and this little one still asks me "when will we visit Nicole and Simbavati?" Nicole and Humphrey of Simbavati River Lodge were absolutely amazing that my daughter can't forget them. Our whole trip was orchestrated so well by @a2asafaris that it made for such a memorable experience. And I still do ask my husband the same question "when can we go back to Africa?"

“Everything was on point and it made everything convenient for us”

Hi Yessa, thank you so much for arranging everything for us. Everything was on point and it made everything convenient for us. Also, all the accommodations were beautiful especially Dulini and the location of La Petite Dauphine. Thanks for all the restaurant recommendations too. We didn't have a meal that we didn't enjoy but the best was La Colombe. Thanks again for everything.

“When I finally made it to the Makgadikgadi, the wide open sky, and never ending views were even more breathtaking then I had imagined”

It’s been a decade since I first heard about the Makadagadi salt pans in Botswana and I’ve been trying to get there ever since. When I finally made it there this week, the wide open sky, and never ending views were even more breathtaking then I had imagined. And the African tent chic of San Camp felt like my own desert oasis.

Botswana in 3 days. One of my most aggressive trips. Feels like 3 full weeks. Such a good trip!

“It was perfect from all angles, from the way you guys covered porters to meet us and guide us through immigration....”

Hi Yessa, we thank you for designing such a wonderful vacation for us; we are beyond words with what we experienced. It was perfect from all angles, from the way you guys covered porters to meet us and guide us through immigration (I can't imagine how we would have fared in the different airports with 3 kids in tow), to the choice of hotels you have given us. We're already looking forward to our next A2A vacation!

“The people at @a2asafaris #a2ajourneys @egg_nyc helped me step way out of my comfort zone.”

I ended up reminiscing about this vacation.
I am very proud of this trip because I am a nervous traveler. (I have to make the effort to make myself leave my house.) The people at @a2asafaris #a2ajourneys @egg_nyc helped me step way out of my comfort zone.

“We are blessed to see the other part of Africa that the world never really see: the glorious, majestic and beautiful Africa. I wish we could go back soon”

Hi Yessa, we had a wonderful time without any hitches. Thanks for the fab service!

Truly, we had a wonderful time and I even had separation anxiety with the staff of Royal Madikwe and Paul, our guide in Capetown. Service was top notch in Royal Madikwe and I must say that Cape Grace was the most stunning accommodation we have ever stayed in. We are blessed to see the other part of Africa that the world never really see: the glorious, majestic and beautiful Africa. I wish we could go back soon.

“The Charmed Forest”

"The Charmed Forest"

by Mrinalini Sisodia Wadhwa

There is magic in the forests of Africa.
It dances in the fiery heavens, upon the setting sun;
It tiptoes around the delicate purple petals of the veronia,
Nimbly dodging bolts of lightning once the rain has begun.

It sings with frogs in the Linyanti river, near the flowers;
It illuminates thin blades of finger grass in the black night;
It climbs up the brush and scales the trees that tower
Over the Little Bee-Eater, hidden in plain sight.

I can still hear it now, for it sings to me:
It sings beautifully, mournfully, asking to be remembered
–As if I could ever forget its indelible melody–
Woven into the star-studded sky, for tonight and forever.

But, Africa, what are you saying,
In the crickets’ tune, 
The frogs’ symphony, 
The birds’ song?

Is it a lament? 
Is it an elegy?

For I often ask what went wrong–
How could men not believe in your magic?
How could they burn down your bush and carve your rhinos’ horn?
How could they take your innocents across the ocean
–for, in your sparkling eyes, 
I see, sometimes, the waters of the middle passage
that must have sparkled cruelly under the bright sun–
And how could they work them to their graves,
With their progress to be made and wars to be won?

Oh, when I think of those times,
–long gone but little forgotten–
And your song, 
–that will, for eternity, go on–
You amaze me, for what you sing is greater than what we
–indeed, what I– might sing had we been you:
We would dwell on old enemies and lost wishes,

Bitterly cursing the wicked past.
But you? You proudly sing of a better present,
Fervently praying that this peace will last.

And to those who still question your magic,
I have little to say but this:
Watch how these people’s smiles light up the sunrise;
Watch how their ancestors’ stories color the sunset.
What, in centuries past, protected their humanity?
And what, if not magic, can bring such bliss?

“You just marvel at God’s creation and how big this world is”

Dear Nicole, Thank you so much for this wonderful experience we just had at Savuti in Botswana.  We loved every minute of it. The rooms were great, the food delicious, the staff very caring and all that nature - the carpet of stars in the sky when you go for breakfast in the early hours of the day, the vastness of the plains, the sunsets, the animals - the shy and not-so shy ones - aah it was just amazing.  You just marvel at God’s creation and how big this world is.  

The places inspired our little (well not so little) one to write some poetry and enabled Hitendra to do some writing for his book.  

We are hooked and would like to do one every year and since they don’t come cheap, guess we have to work hard the rest of the year to enjoy this slice of heaven:)

“found Rwanda to be a special place to visit - country and people were the highlight aside from the gorillas”

Enjoyed the trip. Got to see different wildlife at Lewa, and found Rwanda to be a special place to visit - country and people were the highlight aside from the gorillas.

“Fifteen minutes after being picked up at the airport by our guide in an open sided land cruiser we were photographing a cheetah family chowing down on a fresh kill 20 feet away – amazing”

Dear Nicole, 
Our Tanzania Safari was perfectly planned and customized, and far exceeded our expectations. Fifteen minutes after being picked up at the airport by our guide in an open sided land cruiser we were photographing a cheetah family chowing down on a fresh kill 20 feet away – amazing. Our adventure was instantly underway. Each of the three camps we stayed at was uniquely awesome, yet equally hospitable, and beautifully sited, with great food. Camp staff were attentive and provided exceptional service. Our guides were outstanding, sharing their knowledge and experience of the local habitats and wildlife that made our trip most entertaining, informative and hakuna matata. Asante sana.
