“Just to say our trip to Zimbabwe was truly wonderful - amazing! Our trips to the Yukon, Himalayas and Australia were all put in the shade by this unique trip. My husband was blown away by all the locations so it's a good testament to how you responded to my brief. Thank you. - Shirley & Francis ”
Shirley and Francis visited Zimbabwe with us in summer 2018. Their favourite parts of the trip were Jozibanini Camp in Hwange National Park, and of course the amazing Victoria Falls.
“We have just returned from our fabulous safari in Botswana and would like to thank you all for the programme you put together. It not only met, but exceeded our hopes and expectations. From the Fairlawns Hotel to the camps and finally to Victoria Falls, the itinerary worked like clockwork. Each camp offered something unique, from the bushmen at Meno a Kwena to the boat trips of the Okavango delta and of course the exceptional wildlife at both, then culminating in the fabulous Savute Elephant Camp. It has truly been the holiday of a lifetime. - Victoria & Richard”
Victoria and Richard went adventuring in Botswana with Far & Wild in September 2018. Highlights were spending time with the bushmen at Meno a Kwena and seeing the elephants in Savute.

“I couldn't wait to explore Madagascar, but information on where to go and what to do isn't easily available. A HUGE thank you to Derek and the Far & Wild Travel team for all their help and advice. Because of their network on the ground, they knew exactly where I should go and what I should do within my small-time frame. And it ended up being a holiday of a lifetime. - Samantha”
Thanks to Derek Samantha and her partner had a great time in Madagascar. They stayed in some fantastic hotels, Tsara Komba, and Andasibe Hotel.
“I have known and loved the Mara all my life. I love to get a fix of the wide uninterrupted endless blue sky and fluffy clouds, with Sunrise and Sunset dictating the decisions for the day. I adore working with Far & Wild, they’re not afraid to ask questions and get the best solution for their customers. – Alex, Governors’ Camp Collection (Far & Wild Partner)”
