I have always wanted to go and see the "Smoke That Thunders".. My hubby and I had the opportunity in April 2011 to go to Zambia to view this magnificent sight. We got into contact with Matthew, to help with the planning and booking for our travels. He listened to everything we were looking for, our budget was spot on, the transfer from the airport to lodge was taken care of and everything was just perfect. The lodge he had booked us into was Breathtaking, right on the bank of the Zambezi.. Incredible!!! We found our dealings with African Safari Guru to be extremely efficient, highly knowledgeable and informative about the area we were visiting. It was a holiday of a lifetime and a wonderful Wedding Anniversary gift!!

We scheduled our safari around a business trip where we had short notification of the travel to Johannesburg. Matt was able to find us a selection of lodges and parks to visit, and provided us with sufficient information to enable us to make the decision on which to chose based on our personal criteria. In addition to the safari, he arranged for two day trips from Joburg for us, Cradle of Humankind and Lesedi Cultural Village. This was our first safari, as well as our first visit to South Africa and we are very pleased with our experience, both with African Safari Guru and Etali Game Lodge in Madikwe. No matter how much research you do, it is not really clear what you are getting into until you get there, so having a company that vetted the properties based on our criteria was essential. It was a wonderful experience, difficult to explain fully to others, but the trip of a lifetime. Loved it and would welcome the opportunity to do it again ... and again.
