Client Feedback – Top 10 (or 11!)

September 13, 2011  By: Gretchen

We recently received a client survey from Frank and Gail in New Jersey about their recent trip to Botswana and Zambia.  We loved their free form ‘Top 10’ list that they responded with and wanted to share it.  Here are the highlights from their trip:

1)    Confronting and living with wildlife in their natural habitat

2)    The exceptional quality and knowledge of the camp guides, especially Goodman at  Savuti and Tsepo at Mombo; in addition to an intense focus and obsession to  find game, the personal interactions with them were fantastic educational and cultural experiences

3)    The “thrill of the hunt”, especially when successful

4)    The AAC / Wilderness Safaris itinerary proceeding like clockwork, as planned and

5)    The courtesies, welcoming smiles, friendliness, and personal interactions of ALL
the camp staffs and management, who could never do enough to make your stay
pleasant, enjoyable and memorable at all times

6)    The many sunrises and sunsets on the plains and the star-gazing and constellation

7)    The pre-sunrise early morning starts and the post-sunset continuing night game
drives at Savuti exposed us to some unique safari experiences, not otherwise

8)    All the lodging facilities and services, especially the “hot water bottles” in the
beds at night were a welcomed addition

9)    Meeting new friends and the social experiences during the game drives and in the
off-hours and evenings

10)  Victoria Falls were magnificent and beyond description, which no ground photo can really capture its breadth; seeing (and photo-ing) the Falls from the small aircraft
departing Livingstone was a breath-taking view

11)  The entire safari experience and adventure was a HIGHLIGHT !!!
