A spectacular, trip of a lifetime adventure with excellent guide.
Our expectations' regarding Africa, with accommodation, food, wildlife etc were surpassed beyond anything we dreamed of.The standout experince for accommodation was the four nights camping in the bush.
Our two guides Anthony & Cady we always felt safe, secure and looked after, and with their experience and knowledge ensured us of a great time with many great sightings the highlights such as the buffalo being killed by lions, wild dogs, white rhino up close and my favourite the elephants many with little babies, not to mention the magical cruise along the Chobe river and so many other experiences to many to mention.
What more could you hope for the trip was fantastic with every little detail being attended to. A big thank you Jude for your passion and knowledge in orgainising such a great experience for your clients. To Anthony and Cady your guiding was out of this world.
We would recommend Masihambe Afrika to anyone wishing to visit Africa,
We will be back!
UGANDA - GORILLAS & CHIMPS 2016 - July 2016
The website stated - "Offers animal encounters never to be forgotten, spectacular scenery, exceptional photographic opportunities, and is known to have some of the friendliest people in Africa". And this pretty much perfectly sums the trip up. A small group of like minded people made this a truly memorable trip. There was good mix of pretty basic camping, and then Lodge/Bungalows for those days when we had trekked - which came as a very welcome reward. The highlight had to be the hour with the Gorillas, this can be a hard trek but sooooo worth it. Once again Ant was our guide and his knowledge, passion and enthusiasm made this one of the most awesome trips I have done. Thinking about booking a Masihambe trip? - stop thinking and start booking you won't regret it.
Triple A and 5 star + rating is not enough praise for Jude and her company Masihambe Afrika, and the magnificent tour that we participated on this year. From the moment we made our first enquiries Jude was friendly and informative. The trip was one highlight after another with many extras included, Accommodation varied from glamping in Botswana to high end chalets. Meals and food were plentiful, with fresh produce and mostly catered from a mix of local restaraunts, to picnic lunches.
Ant our guide.was great, nothing too much trouble. His patience, knowledge exceptional wit, story telling and problem solving skills made the groups time together an absolute delight. Some highlights, Rhino trekking that bought us up close and personel to these magnificent animals. Pundu a Matabele cheif and his family, sunset over the Okavango Delta as two juvenile elephants played in the water, spending time with a magnificent Leopard in the early morning light, haveing a hyena walk thru our camp checking things out as we sang around the camp fire. The list could go on and on.....I hope the people that read this get a small idea of the amazing adventures that Jude offers. Personally we are already in the throws of rebooking with Masihambe Afrika for our next life changing expereince that Africa has to offer.
The tour was excellent: route, vehicle, guide, accommodation, everything was very very good and a trip that will stay in your memory.
We couldn't recommend Masihambe Afrika tours more highly & commend them for their small, well planned & excecuted tours
An experienced guide allowed us to see extensive bird and animal life. His local knowledge and his 22 years of guiding experience ensured thet we missed out on very little. The Big 5 were ticked off early on and other species including over 200 different birds and over 50 mammals followed as time progressed. Some game was seen for the first time on the last day. So there was always something to see and chat about around the camp fire in the evenings.
The landscapes and environments was also continually changing throughout the trip. This tour meet all promised criteria in accommodation, food, side trips and travel locations.
A fantastic safari which we will recommend to our friends with similar interests.
A TRIP OF A LIFETIME 2016 - July 2016
This was a trip of a lifetime, prepared and guided by experts with a strong passion for Africa and Madagascar.
we went on both the Madagascar Trek and the Wildlife & Game Parks safari. both in thier own right were superbly managed by master guide Ant and organiser Jude. We will never forget these expereinces and at the end wanted to turn around and repeat the trip we enjoyed it so much, way above our expectations. The wild life, the rain forests and in treks in Madagascar - highly recommended.
The South Africa, Zimbabwe and Botswana safari would be the most memorable countries we have been to.
Thanks Jude for organising this amazing trip for us, I think it would be hard to find anything better, definatley want to repeat!
