To be honest, we were a bit picky since it was our honeymoon and at the same time, Safari was our dream travel destination. However, we were able get help from Kim and finally ended up with perfect plan. She was very helpful, kind and meticulous person fortunately. She has provided a complete schedule that reflects all of our requirements and, of course, we would encourage safari.com to any consumer considering traveling to Africa.

Fantastic travel agent for African safari family trip!
Wow! Shann was and is fantastic! She figured out a way to make our entire trip work. We are going on a 2 week trip to South Africa and Botswana. She really helped tie it all together as a wonderful, cohesive trip. She is super nice and super smart and very knowledgeable. She is also flexible and thoughtful, etc., etc. When the chips were down (and we literally were considering pulling the plug on the whole trip), she found a way to make the entire itinerary work and got us excited about our wonderful adventure! Highly recommend!
