Rave reviews

We've taken 3 trips with Friendly Planet. All of them have been good, but this one topped them all. We loved the itinerary. We came home feeling we had seen so much! We loved the hotels. The River Lodge in Karongwe was amazing. Our game guides Keenan and Matthews were the best! The African Pride Hotel in Cape Town was beautiful. Our room looked out on Table Mountain! And most of all, our guides did everything they could to ensure that we had the very best time possible. We will definitely look to Friendly Planet again for our next trip!

This was our first ever group tour package... and we'll definitely consider another with Friendly Planet based on our experience! The accommodations are all high quality and unique; hotel service outstanding. Our enthusiastic guide, Vivian, and capable driver Jose, were warm, hospitable, knowledgeable ambassadors for their country. Vivian enjoyed maximizing our experiences whether it was at a simple ice cream stop or describing in detail church art treasures. And she's lots of fun! Highlights for my husband Harris and I were the two amazing days spent at Casa del Suizo in Amazonia. Our local guide, Ramon, welcomed us into his culture and literally made the jungle come alive letting us sniff aromatic termite nests or offering us freshly cut jungle hearts of palm to eat. And then there was the blow dart tournament...
