    Serengeti North Safari: 1 Sep 2018
    Expectations? Our trip was way beyond our expectations … it was more than we could have imagined - absolutely WONDERFUL!! The location of the Lodges is great, and the accommodation and menus were excellent. We have to comment on our driver/guides - they are very professional, yet friendly, and we were most impressed with their broad knowledge of all the animals, birds, reptiles, insects and plants. They were eager to share information and answer questions, and many moments of humour were also enjoyed! Serengeti certainly did not let us down!!

    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!

    Mara group safari: 23 Aug 2017
    I am sure that we all agreed that the Masai Mara experience through eXplore Plus was excellent! Annemarie could not have been more caring and organised. The accommodation is good and the viewing vehicles are first class. I shall certainly recommend this trip to friends and relatives and hope to do another trip with you in the future.

    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!

    Zambezi Queen: 28 Sep 2018
    Thank you so much for the best holiday ever.  Everything was perfectly organized, every transfer ready to take us to our next destination.  Our stay on the Zambezi Queen was just wonderful. Doreen made us feel like family.  The cabin was huge and the food absolutely divine. Little things like the birthday card in our cabin for my husband, the birthday cake, Matthew making tea whenever he saw me, made this a once in a lifetime experience.  The rangers are very knowledgeable and every trip off the Zambezi Queen was a pleasant experience.  Thank you for all the arrangements and I hope to book our next trip to somewhere in Africa soon.

    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.
