Testimonial

"We had such an incredible time in Zambia. The people are so warm and friendly...they have nothing yet are so happy...it was humbling and a privilege to at least help one family with a nice place to live, and to get to know them. It was so special for our kids to help, and play with children in the village.Of course Victoria Falls is incredible! The safari in Chobe was spectacular - we saw so much!The lodges were incredible - Tongabezi is our new favorite place on earth!  Chobe Under Canvas was brilliant too. All our guides and drivers were impeccable and a joy to get to know.Thank you so much for organizing such a flawless trip!"
