What our guests say about this trip
Enchanting Travels is definitely something special. Their personal consultants worked with our time constraints in the best way ever and the itinerary was perfect for us. We were quite overwhelmed by their attention to detail and we couldn’t have asked anything better in our first visit to Africa. Our guides were fantastic and a big shout out also to the friendly and beautiful people who looked after us in the camps we stayed in. WOW this was truly awesome and we will definitely travel with Enchanting Travels again.
