I've been traveling to Africa now for over 25 years my first Safari was in the Chu Lu hills south of Nairobi and I remember we were driving along this wonderful plane in these veo mark one mark to land rovers I saw my first giraffe galloping along side the cars it was a wonderful sight as very nervous before I went to Africa thinking of God you dig into the bugs and mosquitoes and it's not going to be easy to travel around but once I've been on safari I got a different sort of bug I just fell in love with Africa and then a few years after that I decided to as she'd go into organizing safaris and all is with my business colleague Kate theobald hence the name z herbal barber and since we have been operating Safari business since 1992 I go to Africa three or four times a year to really check out each place Lodge camp and destination to see whether again to suit the sort of safaris that we want to organize and that is the fundamental thing about our holidays we know the places we're sending people to and we can ensure that we make the best use of the clients time there is something extraordinary about landing on a remote Bush trip and you get out of a light aircraft and you just have that tangible smell of Africa all around you and dust is there in clouds the animals are galloping away it's a very difficult thing to describe but it is what makes me love Africa so much the main countries we cover in Africa are Kenya Tanzania Uganda Rwanda Zambia Malawi Zimbabwe South Africa Namibia and may that be a fantastic thing about African holidays this is not just about seeing animals so for instance you could walk along a beach for at least an hour and not see anyone else we have such remote and wild beaches you could then go inland for an hour or two by road and walk and tracking spectacular scenery and then enough gorgeous small hotel and eating amazing food you could be pulled in a mokoro which is a dugout canoe in the water channels the Okavango Delta in Botswana or be driven in a Land Rover across the Great Plains and Serengeti you might want to go trekking up a mountain sort of Mount Kenya or Kilimanjaro or something in Uganda Rwanda or go and look at gorillas in Rwanda and Uganda or perhaps go and listen to electrifying Orion indeed tragic tales about 19th century battles in kwazulu-natal in South Africa and then of course you go on to safariland and see the big 5 lion leopard elephant buffalo and rhino so there is a huge variety of things that people can do on our holidays where you spend a lot of time thinking about the attend race for class and really planning them and I'd like to think that we have a very good idea about how a holiday should fit together the jigsaw and how it should work and logistics of getting you from place to place and I think the fact that we have researched all the different destinations and how they link really does help to make a better holiday for you we do have a few little hideaways up our sleeves that very few people hear about and we have got for instance some fantastic private houses are you on the beach or indeed in the bush that are generally not marketed to the wider public and so we like to keep these little gems for our clouds I love hearing about the feedback when clouds come back from the holiday and they sort of take the fact that gainst the animals as read but also the thing they really do rave about more often than not the people who've looked after them and I think that really does differentiate sort of holidays that we organize compared to many other so as you go on in the world people are just really pleased to see you and they want to give you a fantastic time and we have hosts and managers and guides who will be with you you know 24-7 most of time you become friends them and often clients want to get back the same lodge or indeed follow guided either they've met and and had a fantastic lot of time with the next time we go back to Africa Africa is any wonderfully romantic in evocative place what could be better than walking out into the bush in the morning and then coming around a corner and finding a wonderful table laid out with your Bush breakfast under an acacia tree and sip your cup of chai or coffee and look out across that amazing bush likewise in the evening there you go on an evening sun down a walk you then clamber up a rock and look out watching that Sun go down is that his one of my favorite moments sitting there with a lovely tuska beer just listening to Africa and watching the day end you you
