Steve with guide RuebenWe had an absolutely brilliant time! Rates on par with the Galápagos Islands for me.  All went according to plan and even at Xigera, where birds are the focus, Julian and Maria were happily entertained by the colours and variety. The whole trip was just perfect in terms of variety, and everywhere we went the guides were great.

  Alice and elephants On the trip we saw over 100 elephants, 13 lions, 3 leopards, 12 wild dogs, baby hyenas (pretty much baby everything) a cheetah and a truck load more! I became great friends with everyone on the trip and we plan to stay in touch. I also became great friends with the staff at all three camps and I even got to make my own traditional bracelet and was crowned queen of the Okavango delta. We got to go on the mokoros, a traditional boat pushed by a pole, where we saw 3 sitatunga (a really hard to find aquatic antelope). We also saw 6 lions in a place that hadn't seen lions in 3 years! Going on the safari trucks every morning was so exciting because you would never know what that day might bring, but each day was spectacular in its own way.

"It was such aIMG_7204 privilege to lose my safari virginity with you.  I have had a lot of fun sharing my version of events...  If people want it " both barrels" I give them the elephant story, the ant lion story ( my personal favourite), the leopard "not tonight Josephine" story, the impala falling out of the sky story, the  giraffe- about- to -give -birth story, the giraffe eating a sausage story (2nd Favourite), the frog story, the surrounded -by -elephants story, the wild dogs story, the injured giraffe story ( leave them dangling, don't know what happened next) the Pel's fishing owl story ( light through wings, pure magic), the mobile phone ringing story, the lions having a rumpus story, the termites- are my -Favourite-creatures story...  I remain overwhelmed and so grateful for the opportunity to see up close the heroic beauty and magic of all those animals."

nadyaI consider myself incredibly blessed to have been able to experience my first journey to Africa under Tammie's guidance. I travel far too often but this journey is one that has changed my life and has put a giant notch deep in my heart leaving me feeling that Africa is my second home. Hassle free, magical and breath taking. When are we going back?

sidVisting Zimbabwe with Dr Tammie Matson has been one of the most memorable trips for Dish and I. Her knowledge, admiration and most of all love for the people of Africa changed the trip from being just tourist safari to an experience with the locals she knew well. We got to see some really special animals. Camping for hours to watch a pack of wild dogs was our favourite. Dr Tammie Matson gave us a unique insight into how misunderstood these animals were and the growing need to increase awareness about them. Volunteering in Humani Primary school and setting up their computer lab, playing a game of football with the kids, being thoroughly outplayed and seeing the warm smiling faces of the principal, teachers and kids will remain in our hearts forever. We haven't met another person that's as passionate about Africa's success as Dr Tammie and we'd do it again in a heartbeat.

gjisIn 2009 Tammie Matson helped me organise a safari trip to the Okavango Delta, the Moremi Game Reserve and the Linyanti Reserve in Botswana, Africa. This journey was without a doubt one of the most fantastic holidays me and my wife have ever undertaken. Tammie’s knowledge of the best places to go and best camps in the Botswana to stay at, made the whole trip a magical experience. I would recommend anybody to go on Safari in Africa at least once in their lives, and with Tammie you have the perfect person to help you make that dream a reality. I truly believe you will have the time of your life.
