“Thank you again for all your assistance, consideration, and overall awesomeness!”

Hi Nicole, 

Apologies for the delay, its been a busy couple of weeks back home!  We had an amazing time at Asilia Namiri Plains! Such an extraordinary experience from the hospitality to the game drives ( we also took a walking tour). 

On our final night in Tanzania we stayed at the Sea Cliff hotel (as recommended) and were upgraded to the presidential suite. We appreciate the recommendation!  Attached are some highlight reel photos from our trip.

Thank you again for all your assistance, consideration, and overall awesomeness!

“Our trip exceeded every possible expectation!”

Just got back from a two week getaway to South Africa —Edwin and Lieze planned every thing and our trip exceeded every possible expectation! The trip consisted of two camps - Ngala Tented Camp and Sabi Sabi Little Bush Camp— 3 days in each; followed by two days in Capetown and two days at Babylonstoren in the winelands about an hour out of Capetown.

The safari was wild! We saw lions, leopards, Elephants Rhinos, buffalo, giraffe, zebra —the list goes on and on. We even witnessed 15 female lions wake up from a nap and then stalk and take down two buffalo...it was incredible to witness! We even saw 8 elephants walk up to the pool at Ngala Tented Camp and quench their thirst while we videotaped eight of them lined up side by side with their trunks in the pool!

Our guides were incredibly experienced and had tons of information that made our safari adventures beyond educational.
We had a fabulous guide in Capetown and had great fun seeing the peninsula and loved the beauty of the Cape Of Good hope....(hold on to your bags those baboons are quite mischievous!)
Babylonstoren was a fabulous winery/farm/hotel/spa- whose cuisine included all their own delicious wines, fruits, and vegetables—you don’t get better farm to table meals! The beauty of Babylonstoren is hard to put into words....better to Google it and best to go see it first hand!

The logistics were expertly handled by A2A Safari. We were met and transported to all airports and destinations by friendly competent drivers/guides who made the various connections during our trip flawless. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the best I give them 100!
A2A is a great company and took care of everything. It truly was a trip of a lifetime and I am forever grateful for Edwin and Lieze’s professionalism and expertise.

“All of the arrangements worked like clockwork!”

We worked with Lieze Engelbrecht and our vacation was memorable.  We spent six incredible nights in Botswana at two different lodges/Safari camps.  The game observing, lodging accommodations, food, flights and skybed, made this trip special.  Our overnight trip to Zimbabwe was to see Victoria Falls, accommodation, transportation and a tour was very enjoyable. Although we realized that the week in Botswana would not be inexpensive, we did not have unlimited funds.  Lieze was great in explaining what was possible and helping us achieve our objectives within our budget and bringing it all together to create an incredible vacation.  We did not know what to expect, but everything was seamless.

“This was the most amazing trip of our lives!”

Myself and my wife had contemplated many options for our honeymoon. After a short and informative conversation with Lieze Engelbrecht (A2A Safaris) we were sold on the idea of Africa.

Prior to our trip, Lieze was quick to respond with great ideas for us to consider as we were customizing our trip and she did an excellent job of crafting an itinerary that matched our interests, time and budget.

Upon our arrival in Africa, there was not a detail that was missed for the entire two weeks of the experience. The airport transport, to the hotel selection, the service and the excursions were all top notch. Friends and family have asked us many times about our favorite part of the trip and our response has been that its an impossible question to answer because there were so many aspects of it that were amazing.

I highly recommend A2A Safaris to assist you in coordinating a trip and I highly recommend Wilderness Safari as an outfitter. Its clear that they not only care about your experience but also about the environment in which they operate, which is important. 

Thanks to Lieze, A2A and Wilderness Safaris for helping us make a memory that we will cherish for the rest of our lives.

“Everything was perfectly organized. There was zero anxiety or fear of missing a flight or transfer. Very professional and friendly.”

From the moment Lieze answered my initial email I felt we made the right decision. She was very eager to help us plan the perfect trip and she did just that. After countless emails and always taking into consideration our input, she put together a trip that we will always remember fondly. Everything went without a single hiccup. Every flight, every transfer, every guide or driver, they were all perfect. We are very happy we picked A2A to help us plan our dream trip.

“Thank you so much for doing an excellent job in planning the trip and the wedding. We will definitely recommend you to our friends, family and coworkers”

Nicole:  We pretty much hit the ground running when we got back from Africa and are happy to now have a chance to email you about our trip.

You knocked it out of the park!  The trip was so perfect.  The camps were each so unique and so perfect.  We can see why you chose each one.  Vumbura Plains was so beyond our expectations and the perfect place for our wedding!  The staff did the most amazing job and we were blown away.  It was everything we hoped for and more.  See a few pics below.  

Thank you so much for doing an excellent job in planning the trip and the wedding.  We will definitely recommend you to our friends, family and coworkers.  We fell in love with Africa and I am sure will be in touch for planning anniversary trips in the future!

“Truly a #journeyofalifetime”

Hey Nicole, Thanks so much for helping me put together this awesome trip. Truly a #journeyofalifetime.

Cape Town was an amazing way to start.  I want to live there!  POD was an awesome choice. From our huge balcony, we had a view of the water on one side and the Twelve Apostles on the other.  We saw Jose for dinks as well and he suggested some Botswana dishes we could reequest at the camps.

Edwin was still poking fun at our Victoria Falls stop. The waterfalls were beautiful, and I'm not sure whether you had seen my IG post on my son's bungee jump.  That was certainly memorable.  

Botswana was unforgettable of course. My son was a little concerned about being off he grid for a whole week but being greeted at the Chitabe airstrip by a large pack of wild dogs napping immediately got him into the right mood. We were blessed to be in a good group and to be under the care of Gordon.  My impression was he was a bit of star guide at Chitabe.  The other people in our group were regulars at the camp and had specifically requested him. And he found soooooooooooooooooo many leopard for me, hahaha.  And cheetah, and lion!  The service and food were impeccable.  We asked for the Boboti the Jose recommended and they made it for our first brunch.  Yum.

Little Vumbura was special, and the resident elephants and kudu, seemed to have a particular liking for our tent. I think we had the widest "beach" frontage of all the tents.  Having said that, I played Katy Pery one siesta time and I think I aggravated a hippo.  He went on and on and that evening paid our tent a visit too, hahaha.

The predators seem to be very well fed in Vumbura Plains. We saw several fresh post kill feedings--wild dog on the first evening just after they got an impala, the next day a pride of four male liion feeding on a fresh kill of buffalo.  We saw a kudu carcass that a leopard seemed to have abandoned, and on the last morning, tracking some lion, we saw four adult kudu and a cute baby kudu and then soon enough saw the same four kudu minus the baby thereafter finding 3 adorable lion cubs feeding on the baby kudu. Circle of life! So memorable for us and for me especially to see my son experiencing this for the first time.

Benguerra was the perfect way to end. Actually a lot of the guests seem to have had the same idea. Post safari chilling out. The sight of those dunes just as we were landing in Vilanculos was already amazing. It was just the perfect place to be before heading home.  

Hopefully I finish sorting the over 2000 photos my son took and can post them soon enough.

“All I can say about this trip right now is "WOW"... we had a fantastic time!”

We arrived home today and are exhausted after the 33 hours of travel to get here.  All I can say about this trip right now is "WOW"...  we had a fantastic time!   Wilderness Safaris took great care of us from beginning to end.  The staff, food and guides at every camp were phenomenal.  Nicole did a great job with planning this for us.  It was perfect.

Thank you again for dinner in Cape Town (great city!!!) and it was nice to meet you.  I hope to see you again in the future!

“Hands down an amazing travel agency!”

Amazing trip that was! Thank you to the friendly and awesome Nicole Fernandez! She listens and caters to your needs/wants and is very patient. Our trip went smoothly, from the moment we stepped down the plane and we got back to the airport. The friendliness of the staff in Marataba! The manager there asked her daughter to have a play date with my child in between game drives! They had so much fun! My daughter eventually asked me if we could just move to Africa. Thank you A2A for the accommodation, I would not have known Marataba had I booked the trip myself.

“Once in a lifetime trip! ”

Going on safari is such an incredible experience with the gamedrives alone. Top that off with a gorgeous lodge and accommodations, excellent food, and top-notch service, and it doesn't get any better than that. Our guide and the management at the Lelepa felt like old friends by the time we left - would highly recommend it to anyone!

“Every detail was thought of so we didn’t have to worry about anything except enjoying ourselves while we were away”

A2A’s Nicole Fernandez planned an AMAZING honeymoon for my husband and me!

I usually pride myself on being able to plan my own vacations, but after researching African safaris for weeks I still didn’t know where to begin.  Nicole made the time to get to know me and really listened to our wants and needs.  She was able to plan a trip that incorporated my husband’s desire for luxury and adventure with my need for unforgettable game viewing.  Every detail was thought of so we didn’t have to worry about anything except enjoying ourselves while we were away.  The trip FAR exceeded our expectations and we are already thinking about when we can go back!
