A hello from Corrie and Jay in the states and a huge thank you!
While Jay and I struggle to find any words that can convey how grateful we are to each of you for the magic that was our African adventure – here is a snippet that sums it up, in part.
A special thank you to you Gavin – just incredible!
This was our first trip to Africa and it could not have been more picture perfect. From the exquisite attention to details, big and small, to sharing your infectious passion for all things wild, Gavin, you could not have done a better job! All travel was effortless on our end because it was so well handled and any special requests were addressed beautifully. More than all the logistical details that do indeed go into the makings of a fabulous trip, we truly enjoyed being introduced to this “new part of the world” by someone who obviously loves it so.
The South African landscape was initially so huge and so beautiful that it nearly overwhelmed us, yet it became real and vivid and so alive as you helped us to distinguish dots on the horizon from red hertebeests and fuzz in the sand from a baboon spider’s lair.
With each spotting (so so much to see – so many birds and beasts!) and each fact-filled or humor-laced story we began to grasp the spirit of Madikwe and the Kalahari. Your infectious enthusiasm and your intuitive way of guiding and teaching transformed a trip to Africa into a trip of a lifetime that exceeded our expectations in every possible way. We feel so fortunate to have had you as our guide!
Many many thanks go you and to Dylan for perfect behind-the-scenes and on-the-scene planning and execution and to Meg North and her team at Brownell Travel.
