XA African Safaris did a fabulous job planning and organizing our trip to Cape Town and child friendly safari to the Madikwe Game Reserve. Lisa took care of all the details big and small and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. She understood that the trip had to take into consideration our 3 sons (aged 8-13). The boys had a ball. Thanks Lisa for an adventure of a life time!
Traveling to South Africa, Zambia and Botswana was an amazing adventure that I anticipated for many years. Having the opportunity to work with Lisa Marsden of XA Safaris was amazing. She was so attentive to our requests and provided our entire group of 6 with all the needed information prior to our departure. Lisa answered all e-mails within 24 hours and asked all appropriate questions in determining what itinerary would work the best. She was a sheer delight to communicate with and I look forward to working with Lisa on our next trip to a different destination in Africa.
We wanted to say a huge “thank you” for the fantastic holiday you arranged for us to Uganda and Tanzania. We had the time of our lives and we’ll never forget it. Everyone we met on our travels was wonderful. Ben was brilliant and made our game drives so much fun. Fred was a sweetheart and we learnt lots from him. Our porters Isaac and Joshua were great and loved ALL the staff at Buhoma. They made my birthday so special and memorable.
We will recommend you and your company to all our friends who want to visit Africa. We said this would be our last big holiday, but absolutely no ways.
Lisa Marsden of XA African Safaris arranged a gorilla trek in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Uganda for my group of 7 travellers in September of 2013.
The arrangements (flights, road transfers, accommodations, gorilla permits and additional activities) and the incredibly thorough and helpful pre-trip information exceeded our expectations.
Lisa’s personal, first-hand knowledge of Uganda, the gorilla guides, staff, accommodations and yes, even the Gorilla groups made this trek, ” an experience of a lifetime”.
We plan to use Lisa’s services again. We highly recommend Lisa to anyone planning a safari in Africa.
I am not sure if I ever thanked you for the AMAZING trip you put together for me through Namibia. It was the trip of a lifetime!
I shall definitely book with you for the fall of 2013. There are parts of Namibia I would like to do along with perhaps another country.
In August 2012 we had a fantastic journey to Tanzania heading not to the very public northern parts, but to two national parks on the southern circuit. A few days at Selous National Park were followed by a wonderful Ruaha National Park. Everything was arranged in the best way possible (it can´t be better), quite as announced and in the same professional way we knew from several prior journeys to Uganda. We will certainly continue travelling with Lisa next year.
Thank you Lisa for the amazing and unforgettable experience of spending time with such docile and beautiful animals, for organising our trip to Uganda and managing to make everything work like clockwork. We’re definitely gonna have you working hard organizing all our upcoming trips!
Our trip was planned so that we could have the privilege of spending an hour in the company of mountain gorillas – an indescribable, life-changing experience. Without Lisa’s help arranging our visit to the KATE orphanage to give blankets to the wonderful children, we would have missed out on making a special connection with Hannington. Lisa also used her extensive experience and contacts in Uganda, specifically Bwindi, to arrange for a wonderful driver/guide Steffi and Fred to be our porter on our treks. Our accommodations and the warm and welcoming staff at Buhoma Lodge were outstanding. Thank you Lisa for all you did to make this an amazing and memorable journey to BEAUTIFUL UGANDA.
Our trip to Africa was amazing, we loved all the places Lisa recommended to us. In Cape Town, the V&A Hotel was very good and the location is perfect. We loved the winelands visit. The safari lodge, to Jaci´s Tree Lodge in Madikwe Reserve, is a great place and I recommend it. The food and accommodations are perfect, the safaris are very good but hard to see a lot of animals due to the size of the reserve, nevertheless we appreciate them. Finally, Lisa gave us an excellent service and for sure I recommend her services for everyone.
Seeing the gorillas in Rwanda was extraordinary. We sat for an hour among a family of 14 as they went about their day grooming, eating and playing. They were so close we could have touched them – in fact one touched me! The guides and trackers, who see the gorillas every day, were no less entranced than we were and eager to share family histories, stories and information. A rare and wonderful experience. Our thanks to Lisa for making it happen.
