What Our Guests Are Saying…

Dan and Ants, we just wanted to say thanks again for making our first trip to Africa a truly memorable one. You were great travel companions and ambassadors along the way. We both had a fantastic time and would not have changed a thing. Cape Town was beautiful. We did everything we wanted to do except go shark diving due to water conditions, but in exchange, Jody was over the moon to go to the Cheetah outreach centre.  We look forward to planning our next safari for 2017!

Oh my gosh this place is beyond gorgeous!  We had a fabulous time at Nottens after a fabulous time at Victoria Falls after a fabulous time at Little Mac. Everything was completely perfect with our travel, accommodation and wonderful people everywhere.  Thank you for making this happen for us. Thank you so much for everything!  We have many envious friends and we tell them all how great Explorations Africa and you and Dan have been to make this trip so stress free and exciting to anticipate!

“Down inside me a tiny voice was calling.  At first scarcely audible, it persisted until I could no longer ignore it.  It was the voice of the wild places and I knew that it was now part of me forever”
