What can I say but thank you so much for organising the trip of a lifetime. Every bit of our two week stay was a new adventure and we would not have asked for anything different. All the lodges were fantastic even the more basic option in Swaziland which still was beautiful.
As there was no electricity the stars at night under a log fire were amazing and quite an experience.
Thank you for organising such an amazing honeymoon it was better than we could have ever expected.
I will contact you when we come back which will be very soon.

- Grazia

Ciao Manuela
volevo ringraziarti nuovamente per l’organizzazione, è stata veramante perfetta, le accomodation molto confortevoli e… troppo cibo, Marco mi è ingrassato di 4 kg.
E’ stato un viaggio stupendo, è filato tutto liscio, e la guida è veramente in gamba,
di nuovo: Grazie infinite!!!!

- Laura

Ciao Manuela,
il nostro viaggio è stato molto bello e ti dobbiamo fare i complimenti per la scelta degli alberghi sempre molto carini e particolari. L’accoglienza è stata fantastica.
Ti dobbiamo inoltre ringraziare per la bella sorpresa al Nkaya game lodge, la cena è stata inaspettata e molto apprezzata, soprattutto perchè è stato il nostro momento più romantico.
Ci siamo trovati molto bene con l’itinerario e l’organizzazione che devo dire è stata puntuale in ogni sua parte.

- Francesca

Il safari…Splendido davvero!!! Un’esperienza che ricorderemo a lungo. Bello il Kruger, eccezionale la riserva privata, avevi ragione ci saremmo pentiti se avessimo fatto solo una notte…
E cascate impressionanti!
Ci siamo trovati bene in tutte le strutture. Ti ringraziamo davvero di tutto, indimenticabile!
Spero ci risentiremo per altre esperienze

- Danilo

Manuela e’ andato tutto bene, da parte mia e di mia moglie non possiamo che tessere le lodi di tutti.
Tutto coordinato molto bene, non abbiamo avuto nessun contrattempo anche nei passaggi Botswana – Zimbabwe e so che in Africa non è sempre facile far filare tutto liscio!
Siamo andati benissimo!

- Donatella

Ciao Manu,
I ragazzi sono stati benissimo, un viaggio indimenticabile
Grazie di cuore per la tua preziosa collaborazione e per la tua attenzione.
Un abbraccio

- Massimo & C

Ciao Manu,
siamo tornati dal bellissimo viaggio che hai organizzato per noi in Botswana nello scorso mese di aprile.
Tutto è andato benissimo (anche il fuoristrada) ed abbiamo avuto uno staff davvero di alto livello.
La zona del Kalahari è bellissima ed il Moremi all’altezza della sua fama.
La stagione delle piogge non è stata favorevole ma lo spettacolo è stato, comunque, grandioso.
Abbiamo visto, fra l’altro, diversi Tassi del Miele e, nella stessa giornata, due distinti gruppi di licaoni.
Seagal è stato, come al solito, bravissimo e disponibilissimo.
Insomma tutto benissimo e grazie di nuovo per l’ottima organizzazione.

- Barbara

- Chiara

… il “maldafrica” ha fatto una nuova vittima… ho amato questo viaggio come nessun altro prima e penso già a quando potrò tornare. Grazie di aver reso il mio primo incontro con l’Africa così stupendo, so che te l’ho già detto, ma davvero è stato tutto perfetto! Diciamo pure che non ti libererai più di me!

- Patsy and Werner
