Matt M., United States

Seven Wonders Safari was amazing. We worked with Evelyn for several months as we tweaked our vacation plans. She was generous with her time and was very responsive to our changing requests and questions. She made the entire planning and booking process very easy, smooth and stress free. The accommodations were really nice that she set up and we loved the trip tremendously. Our guide for the trip was really amazing too, which is important when you are spending so much time together. His knowledge of all the animals, birds, local culture and African history really made the trip a learning vacation. We were a little sad when we left Evelyn at the end of our trip as we had all become close friends. We look forward to working with them again and seeing them in the future. Read more

Words cannot express how impressed I am with Seven Wonders. Evelyn was the most responsive and reasonable operator I encountered. Both the Masai Mara and Serengeti were breathtaking. Our accommadations were luxury tents which were very suitable for us and our vision of what we wanted during this safari. Our guides were knowledgable and very informative. We saw the BIG 5! Our guides would communicate constantly with other guides in the park over a radio and they knew the parks very well. We cannot thank you enough for an adventure of a lifetime! We saw all different types of animals and we also were able to see the great migration as well as the calving season with thousands of zebra and wildebeests. We saw lions, cubs, african elephants, hippos, crocodiles, cheetah, leopards, rhino, flamingos, water buffalo and many more! It was an amazing experience! Read more
