Hi Desire
Thank you for a fabulous trip. Anantara Bazaruto Island Lodge definitely superceded my expectations. I hope to have many more. I am pleased to have found a personal travel planner. Especially for my island experiences.

Dear Desire

Firstly thank you for the meticulous work that you did for our trip to Ethiopia. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience and we are so glad that we went.

Everywhere we went we were greeted by a representative of Lake Tana Tours and we were introduced to our driver and our guide for the day. They were all highly experienced and even though their English was not perfect, it was good enough to understand what they were saying and to ask questions. We were looked after like royalty, particularly in Gondar where our guide was very careful that we did not get lost in the crowds and that we were able to see all the important parts of the festival. That was definitely the highlight of our trip.

The hotels were mostly good. Of course, the most luxurious were in Addis and Bahir Dar, but for friendliness and comfort, the Panoramic View Hotel in Lalibela was certainly the best. We loved it there and nothing was too much trouble for them.

We enjoyed going on the boat on Lake Tana to see the island churches. Unfortunately, Axum was rushed even though the guide did his best.
Air Ethiopia must take the blame for this, as they changed the flight times. The tours in Lalibela were taxing with dark tunnels, lots of climbing and walking through narrow passages but I wouldn’t have missed it for the world!!!

There were a few things that I would change if it was up to me. Firstly, there was very little leisure time to just “be” in the place we were visiting. I would have liked to go back to some places on my own and spend an hour or so getting my bearings or just walking around a bit. We never felt unsafe anywhere ... >> Read More

Hi Desire,


I honestly do not have words to describe the awesome place you sent us and how we were treated. Anantara Bazaruto Island Lodge is...Out of this world!

I just want to thank you for everything you have done for us, it was amazing and the people out there needs to know about your service.

Testimonial by Mark Harris from South Africa

We enjoyed the trip to Zanzibar.

Your service was exceptional and I was very impressed by the short notice I gave you and you came through for me.

We had a good rest, which was needed after a long tiring year.
Thank you, one again!

An African Proposal

Thank you for arranging our engagement trip to Botswana - you had such a big part in making this the best proposal ever!!!!

Testimonial by Robert Eiman from Namibia

This was indeed a great Cape Town Holiday that we had. It was absolutely magical.
We were happy with all the arrangements you made and the accommodation was also really great.

Thanks a lot for making this possible because we really needed the break. We did most of the touristy things and it was a welcome change. Hope to be able to do this again soon.

Thank you again for everything.

Rwanda Trip (18 to 24 December 2014)
The purpose of me writing this document is to provide insight for travellers wanting to travel to Rwanda.

The program was as follows and tailored to our needs which for us are great……Desire always manages to cater for our needs!!!!!

Day 1: Arrive in Kigali and travel to the Gorilla Mountain Lodge
Day 2: Visit the Gorillas
Day 3: Visit the Gorillas an travel to Nyungwe Forest Lodge
Day 4: Chimpanzees and Forest Canopy walk/Orchids
Day 5: Colobus monkeys and travel back to Kigali
Day 6: Kigali, flying back home

Day 1:
• We stayed in Joburg so that we can catch the plane to Kigali in the morning. We used Rwandair which is a reasonable airline
• Our tickets were booked via SAA and it seems like SAA is not the most reliable airline as they had to transfer/organise with Rwandair to book us on the plane. So there was some confusion and discussions but that was sorted and we got on the plane to Rwanda
• The plane was half an hour late but it seems like that is the standard flying into Africa as we had other experiences in Africa
• Arriving at Kigali airport I was surprised by the efficient way the passport control operates. We must however understand that this is not Europe. The passport control compared to some of the other African countries was good. We did not have any issues, paid for our visas and collected our luggage
• We were then handed a scissors to remove the wrapping from our luggage, to realise that it’s illegal to have plastic bags in the country. This was immediately evident when we left the airport as Rwanda is one of the cleanest countries in Africa….no plastic bags as decoration on the vegetation or in the streets, which is awesome

Hi Desire

I'm writing just to thank you for everything regarding our Namibia adventure. It was an adventure and a half. We will definitely be going back very soon.

We didn't experience any problems at all. We managed to do most of the things you suggested and had lots of fun.

I wish I could give you the finer details of the trip, but overall, it was awesome.

Thank You! My friends and I have just found ourselves the most professional and caring travel agent. You are amazing.
