“We had a wonderful visit to Namibia. It’s an extraordinary place with a great variety of activities and landscapes”

We had a wonderful visit to Namibia. It’s an extraordinary place with a great variety of activities and landscapes. The people were wonderful and all the transfers and flights went off without a hitch. The weather was great and even at Sossusvlei very few people. 

We will have to pick your brain about where to go for 2020!

“A2A has just raised the bar of travelling by several notches. I can now confirm that one size does NOT fit all”

A2A has just raised the bar of travelling by several notches.  I love that the destinations are carefully studied and curated.  I love that they organize everything.  I love that they make sure their clients are comfortable and taken care of.  All you need is to just show up.  And the Vamoos app is impressive.  In travelling,  I can now confirm that one size does NOT fit all.

“Cheers and more power to A2A and as well as kudos to Yessa Caparas! You'll be seeing more of us this coming year”

Yessa,

Lia and I returned yesterday afternoon.  We had an excellent trip!  All the arrangements went flawlessly.  All the guides were very knowledgeable and extremely personable.  We were in very good hands.  Last Monday we had the opportunity of having dinner with Lit Cortes in Capetown where we took in more anecdotes of South Africa and the rest of the travels that A2A organizes.  It ends up that he's a very good friend and schoolmate of my youngest brother.  And most of all, the trip was FUN !!

Cheers and more power to A2A and as well as kudos to Yessa Caparas! You'll be seeing more of us this coming year.

Hi Yessa, we just got back from our trip. Everything was so perfect and wonderful. We also had a chance to meet up with Lit Cortes in Cape Town. Thank you very much for all the arrangements.

“I'm glad that my first-ever trip to Africa started in your adopted city and that I had a wonderful time overall”

It was a great pleasure to meet you in the lovely city of Cape Town.
I'm glad that my first-ever trip to Africa started in your adopted city and that I had a wonderful time overall.
There are so many highlights I can speak of, but I want to specifically highlight my sincere thanks and appreciation to YOU and your team - especially Monica and Chelsea - for ensuring that I had a memorable holiday.
I truly appreciate your changing the schedule to ensure I/we got to fully enjoy Toka Leya.
Thank you also for your generosity over dinner and drinks; and the lovely conversations.
I look forward to seeing you, and Kitty, when you are in Singapore next.
THANK YOU Jose!!

“Best hotels. Best staff. Best food. Best scenery. Absolute pleasure. Thanks for making it memorable, one of a kind, and (i hope not) once in a lifetime! ”

Yessa! Chels and I just came back from the dead after recovering from jet lag haha. But we both want to extend our extreme gratitude to you and the rest of the A2A team for giving us literally the perfect honeymoon any newlywed can ask for. Thank you for being so accommodating and helpful to us, your recommendations were 100%! (we also gained 15 lbs together from the trip lol)

“Highly recommend you seek out A2A (and Nicole, in particular) when you are looking for an amazing visit to Botswana!”

We just got back from a fantastic trip, really the trip of a lifetime, to three camps in Botswana (in the Okavango Delta and the Kalahari), as well as to Vic Falls.

This truly excellent trip (in terms of choice of lodging, camp experience, and sequence of experiences) was put together by Nicole at A2A. She did an amazing job of anticipating what we would like, after talking with me over several conversations. She also worked with us on managing the budget in any way she could. She added a 'surprise' at a couple of our stops that made the trip even more memorable! Highly recommend you seek out A2A (and Nicole, in particular) when you are looking for an amazing visit to Botswana!

“Thank you A2A & a shout out to Lieze for recommending, arranging & coordinating with your office in South Africa for our stay at Nottens for a very memorable safari experience”

My family just returned from a South African safari arranged by Lieze Engelbrecht of the A2A NY office. Other members of my family have used A2A for other safaris in other locations in Africa.

I am very pleased and thankful for A2A'S expertise, knowledge, assistance and guidance in helping us get the best value & experience. Everything went smooth, seamless and they even prepared us for the trip with valuable and helpful information. They were easy to reach & communicated very well with us. We love the memories & friendships that were made at the camp we stayed at. It was everything we expected and so much more. Thank you A2A & a shout out to Lieze for recommending, arranging & coordinating with your office in South Africa for our stay at Nottens for a very memorable safari experience. A big thank you from the 5 of us who celebrated various family events in such a special, one of a kind setting!

“It also gave us a chance to take a step back and reflect on our place in the universe, how everything is connected, and how we should all take responsibility for our actions”

What an experience, one that we will not easily forget. We saw a lot of game, big and small, dead and alive, all to remind us that there is a greater world, far from the hustle and bustle of urban life. It also gave us a chance to take a step back and reflect on our place in the universe, how everything is connected, and how we should all take responsibility for our actions.  Bravo and thank you, Tuludi, for showing us that sustainable, environmental and “green” should be and can be part of our consciousness.

“The TOTAL EXPERIENCE is beyond words...I can't seem to begin nor attempt to describe the feeling...so OVERWHELMED!”

JAMBO Yessa!

Lilit and I are trying to recover from a very bad case of "AFRICAN FEVER"!

Our minds are still flooded with images of Kenya...we are not complaining, though.

Lilit is busy typing away non-stop, on his laptop since yesterday trying to commit to its memory bank, salient details of our trip...call it, the KENYA DIARIES.

On my part, I have been sorting through thousands of fotos I took with just my celfone -- I know it would never approximate what I have seen, but, good enough to get so many positive and appreciative feedback from Family and friends for the efforts made, to share my experiences!

Thank God Lilit has so many fantastic fotos on his LUMIX camera. Nothing fancy, but, it certainly captured so many dramatic and stunning pictures!

Despite a full day out game-watching daily, and exhaustion, I tried to cope with posting on FB what I could, just as starters...at times, trading precious sleep...hehe! The posts will help me remember the salient aspects and highlights of my safari adventure!

Because of my FB posts...KENYA and a SAFARI adventure has been re-introduced to the pysche of many who saw my posts.

I have gotten many inquiries, and of course, it goes without saying, that we have been mentioning A2A to our friends and relatives.

We are so HAPPY and pleased with our trip -- thanks to you, A2A, Cheli and Peacock, the management of each camp/place where we stayed, and, to ALL whom we met along the way, who are now dear rafikis.

The TOTAL EXPERIENCE is beyond words...I can't seem to begin nor attempt to describe the feeling...so OVERWHELMED!

I will TAG you the rest of my ALBUMS...I hope to complete them before I hit the PANIC BUTTON, as the Holidays is just around the corner...yikes!

We will certainly keep in touch!

God Bless!

“I literally booked this Namibia trip last minute on a complete whim, but it has turned out way beyond expectation.”

Had a very productive waterhole with 2 bull elephant, black rhino, zebra, oryx, springbok, ostrich, wildebeest.  Short moment when one of the elephants and the rhino squared off with each other.

Then we came back to the reserve and saw the lion pride again and the cubs walked right past or almost under our vehicle several times.  Great stuff.

So after only the first day I think I can say Mission Accomplished.

Too many black rhino to count!  Maybe 15-17 if I had to guess.  Saw 8 (!!)  just today, between Ongava and Etosha.  Plus 7 white rhino.

Plus - my first honey badger!

And my first caracal!

And first brown hyena.

And first Hartmans zebra.

And we saw a leopard in Etosha, on the ground walking to the waterhole and then drinking.

Also saw 3 prides of lion (2 with cubs), and spotted hyena.

There are 4 white rhino at our camp waterhole as I type this.  Too much happening today to take in.

I literally booked this trip last minute on a complete whim, but it has turned out way beyond expectation.

“We have just returned from our first trip to South Africa. It has been absolutely amazing! ”

We have just returned from our first trip to South Africa. It has been absolutely amazing! Everything was well organised from the meet and greet at the airport, to all our pick up times for our tours.  All our hotels where in great locations and our tour guide was excellent.  Would recommend to all family and friends wishing to travel to SA to book with A2A Safaris thru the assistance of Michael Scott to experience a trip of a life time which was a well planned, organised trip.  Well done A2A Safaris!!

“Everything went smoothly and it was a great experience as we had so many wild dogs sightings (including kills) which was what we went for :)”

Hi Chelsea!

We are back home in the urban jungle and wanted to say thanks for coordinating the trip!

Everything went smoothly and it was a great experience for us as we had so many wild dogs sightings (including kills) which was what we went for :)

Overall South Africa doesn't seem as dense or "vibrant" as East Africa esp in the Savannah Serengeti plains but we love it anyways as it came with a lot of action!
