The safari was more than I had imagined on every level - wilder, more beautiful, and hotter! It just exceeded our expectations on so many levels. One of the many memories was the last night game drive, watching the lions with the smell of the bush all around us, and the approaching storm! That was very special and of course the beauty of seeing the game in the natural habitat at such close range was just something else! The food was amazing and in such abundance! - Annie Lamour, Wilderness

It was outstanding, with very good luck we saw all the Big 5 and more - Stig Naslund , Sweden

I am glad that I chose this tour. We were lucky to see so many animals. Should have stayed little longer - Margareta Naslund , Sweden

Excellent! I'm very happy and enjoyed this safari and our guide Ian has been very able, available & so kind. I hope to come back as soon as possible with Ashtons Tours - Guido Poppi, Italy

Very Good and very complete. We've spent our money in the best way. Ian has been perfect, professional, gentle and he has a deep knowledge about animals, places and history - Valentina Verdone , Italy

Very nice. Very good organisation and service. We would repeat and recommend the tour. Excellent guide.Rosa Jimenez, Spain

Comments from 2006

I have been contaminated with Ian's (Ashtons Guide) passions about African nature. We saw a lot, we learned a lot, we have memories forever. We will definitely miss Ian's constant, accurate and discrete care for us. I was lucky to choose Ashtons. Valentine Franck , Belgium

Ashtons Tours is a very good company. Ian (Tour guide) is the best guide and the best cook. The camps are all very interesting and different. I am very happy with my first trip to South Africa.Emmanuelle Viseur, France

It was a fantastic tour with simply beautiful places. It was a very good trip, thanks a lot. Berenger Cestre, France

It was my intention that my daughter Jemina (10yrs) have a really inspiring birthday present and my expectations have been exceeded.  I know from her behaviour on travelling home and the constant recitation of experiences and adventures to family that this will remain with her for life. All the personnel we met from the African Ivory Route group have been excellent and we were so grateful to them. No criticisms, this was 100% perfect.John Burrell, England

Thanks to Ashtons, I was able to enjoy the adventure of a lifetime. I could not believe the amount of wildlife that I got to see. The rangers' knowledge was vast as was their patience with all my questions. The camps were superb, particularly Buffelshoek which I never wanted to leave. I have many wonderful memories and cannot wait to go back.Neil Hopwood, Manchester (UK)

The tour exceeded my expectations. Nothing seemed contrived or tourist-slanted, either the cultural or the wildlife portions. The tour was well organized and effectively conducted. All guide staff were well informed and very willing to answer questions.

I will rave about this tour to my friends. It was far less expensive for us than others I considered. It far exceeded my expectations. The guides and experiences were oh so wonderful! I am amazed at the great meals our guides prepared on open fires. Super! I loved hearing about native black culture and seeing the villagers dancing.Jessie Strauss, Seattle (USA)

It was really excellent. The guides were very professional, polite, prepared. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this tour to my best friends. I wish it could have been longer.Price Chenault, Aberdeen (USA)

They were by FAR the best tour guides I have ever had. The cultural knowledge and flora/fauna knowledge was very informative! Very well organized - I would not hesitate to recommend Ashtons Tours. Maria Jackson, Edmonds (USA)

Comments from 2005

Our trip was absolutely great. In this one week we were having sensational impressions I still recall almost every day. The challenging adventure of seeing and being close to so many wild animals, the pure nature and of course also the perfectly prepared meals have been experiences that nobody should miss. South Africa is not only therefore worth being visited and once is for sure not enough! Florian Haas, Munich

We thoroughly enjoyed our safari experience! The camps and camp staff were fantastic and so knowledgable - they really made the game drives a fantastic experience. The wildlife was great - especially the herds of elephant at Mtomeni and the lion at Ndzhaka. You can't beat the feeling of wide open space and the sounds and scents of the bush! Den & Claire, Cape Town

This was my very first wildlife adventure. I felt like I was living in paradise because I never had this much fun in my life. I had the chance to experience what my friends use to fantasize about - spending time with the lovely and beautiful wild animals of Africa. One of the activities that I really enjoyed , was the guided walking tour which gave me the opportunity to see lions, buffalos, elephants and hippos at very close range. It was Great! I would like to do the African Ivory Tour trip again and again! Aby Kane, Cape Town

The Ivory Route adventure was the first real "wilderness" trip I have been on and what an experience it was! The communication and openheartedness of the staff at the Mafefe cultural camp was astounding. The staff and guides at all the camps were so helpful and friendly and had the most amazing stories and experiences to share. We did 4x4 maneuvers you would otherwise only see on TV. The wildlife was like watching National Geographic on I-Max. I would recommend this adventure to all with an interest in getting away from it all and getting in tune with the very heartbeat of nature. This really is what dreams are made of!Ian Mitchell, Pretoria

My first time to South Africa and I found myself in the most beautiful and peaceful wildlife camps, I could not have even imagined. I highly appreciated the traditional and unique style of the accommodation, the remarkable concept in total as well as the wonderful local staff, their knowledge and stories. Their friendly mentality and openness made me feel very welcome and safe, just like at home! The wildlife and game experience was amazing, especially the leopard at Ndzhaka and the lions during the night game drive…not to forget the elephant herd at 5m distance or the many giraffes, birds, hippos etc. Definitely worth coming back again and again for extraordinary holidays! Martina Klein, Munich
