    Wildebeest River Crossing Group Safari: 10 Aug 2019
    I would like to sincerely thank you for organising our Serengeti migration tour in such a relaxed, excellent and professional manner.  From our tour leader, departures, road trips accommodation and vehicles and drivers, everything was absolutely fantastic!  A trip of a lifetime - even one of the chaps handing the champagne to me at our balloon breakfast said:  'eXplore is the Mama company to do this trip with!'  I will certainly recommend you all the time!  Thanks for always being there and going the extra mile for our comforts and safety!

    Machame 7-Days: 15 Sept 2018
    Predictably, the eXplore Plus team have AGAIN surpassed our highest expectations and dreams.  From the information gathering, travel arrangements, packing list & tips, my numerous clarity seeking phone calls and even the personalised daily feedback and calls direct to my wife on my climbing progress, the eXplore Plus team did a wonderful job!!  Having climbed Kilimanjaro themselves they could share experiences and information.  My Kilimanjaro guide Yesse and his team were amazing and by the end of the trip I felt sad to leave as they had become like a brothers to me.  There is little doubt Kilimanjaro guides are kept to a very high standard.  Ever since our marvellous Serengeti Adventure last year, eXplore Plus have become our premier Travel and Tour operator.  Annemarie, Mariska and Rika… you guys rock!!!  Got a travel bucket list to work through?  Give eXplore Plus the opportunity to exceed your expectations!

    Rwanda 4-day Gorilla Trekking: 9 Aug 17
    The experience was amazing!!! What surprised me was how close we got to be with the gorillas. So close that a silverback threw me a friendly punch as he strolled by! The tour was very well organized. We enjoyed how hassle free it was with great service from the local company. Thanks for arranging a great trip – the trip of a lifetime!

    Uganda group safari – 20 Sept 17
    We absolutely thoroughly enjoyed our trip, it was wonderful, thank you. Uganda was a totally different safari experience, and we were so lucky with the weather and our sightings. Loved the gorilla and chimpanzee experiences and getting to see the Ugandan countryside.
