We had a fantastic time thank you. Honeyguide in the Kruger – an inspired choice. Saw loads of animals – we were very fortunate to have a guide and truck to ourselves, which makes all the difference for a family experience. The food and welcome were excellent so very happy. The real find were the Islands of Siankaba – a beautiful peaceful place. The welcome and service was incredible and the food very good too. We had the stretch of the Zambezi totally to ourselves (apart from the hippos and crocodiles) – a 10/10 experience. Knocks spots off the Royal Livingstone Hotel where we went for a light lunch after seeing the Falls. So many thanks Kath for getting us all geared up – you did a great job! Hope all is well with you.

Hi Kathryn! We had a fabulous trip!! Thank you for another “Trip of a Lifetime”. Also, thank you for advising us to stay and concentrate on Kenya only. First, I think that it would have been way too much traveling to do Kenya and Tanzania but also, we definitely liked Kenya better than our brief interactions with the Tanzanians. I would definitely recommend Breezes Beach Club though on Zanzibar for someone that wants to finish a trip at the beach. We talked to a lot of other people that did both Kenya and Tanzania and Tanzania seems definitely more commercialized. Also, the biggest advice to give someone wanting to see the animals is stay on a private Conservancy such as Olare Orok where Mara Plains is. When we were in the national park it was definitely a different experience with all of the cars surrounding us. Thank you!

Dear Kathryn, Thank you for the great job you have done for us in planning our honeymoon. You have given us very good service and great deals and tips. What I liked most is your personal approach to us as customers. I certainly understand why Thor Philip mentioned you and your company. We will definitely recommend you to our friends and acquaintances! Thank you again for your great service! Wish you all the best

Linzi and Jon Erie – Norway

Hello Kathryn, I wanted to email and thank you for all your help with booking our holiday to Benguerra Island, Mozambique. Azura was the perfect place to stay and we had an amazing time. The villa, food, and service was exceptional. We had some great dives with the two diving instructors, Wouter and Jason, who really made our holiday. Unfortunatly my husband didnt get to see Whale Shark, but that just means we have to keep looking. So thank you again for providing us with a holiday to remember! We wish you and your husband a very merry Christmas/God Jul and all the best for 2014!

Happy New Year! Just to let you know we arrived back this morning after the most incredible 2 week holiday. Everything was absolutely perfect. The Safari was beyond expectations and a fabulous recommendation. The Plettenberg hotel was just perfect and we had fabulous rooms. The private Jet from Kwandwe to Plett was also perfect and I can highly recommend Plett Air as they were excellent. Everything ran like clockwork and we really had a brilliant holiday. Thank you again for all you help and work in making this a great holiday. I will recommend you to anyone who asks me about my holiday. Best wishes

We have just returned and had a wonderful trip. Everywhere was great and I can only thank you for the excellent arrangements. There were no hitches-and I can always find something to complain about. We loved The Last Word and especially loved The Clarendon at Bantry Bay-really excellent. So thanks for everything and I am sure we will be in touch again.

Jenni Brennan, USA

We’ve recently returned from our honeymoon in South Africa and Mozambique and for those who are considering working with I Found Africa, we highly recommend her services! We had an absolutely wonderful time and all of the details (of which there were a lot) were perfectly coordinated. Our trip truly went off without a hitch. Kathryn’s recommendation of accommodations was spot-on as well – we stayed at two &Beyond properties and they were exactly what we were looking for on this trip. We will definitely be in touch with I Found Africa if we ever set our sights on Africa again (which we very much hope to). Thanks again for everything!
