Traveler Testimonials

Our trip to Tanzania was magical. The Serengetti and Ngorongoro Crater are two of the great wonders of the natural world. The travel arrangements were excellent. Just pack your bags, update your shots and go!

Len & Jean Lillie, Tanzania Safari During the Great Migration

This proved to be a wonderful tour that was all we expected and more in many ways. The arrangements were all well taken care of at every turn. A highlight of the Amazon trip was the knowledgeable and friendly naturalists on board the Zaphiro. They really enhanced our experience on the river.

Mark & Marilyn Sears, Amazon River Expedition
