Ross & Patricia (Client – Canada)
Lesley, everything about this trip was phenomenal – the careful planning, mix of accommodations, guides …
To end at Lion Sands Ivory Lodge though was sheer perfection. I have never experienced a place like that and we all hope that someday we will have a chance to return. It was remarkable. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, it was an experience of a lifetime. So many highlights.
The staff – the guides, trackers, servers etc. who were warm, kind, thoughtful and the best at what they do. On the first day the head chef came out and told us that he had removed all nuts from the premises for our entire stay so that our children could eat whatever they wanted and didn’t need to ask about allergies. This experience has NEVER happened to them outside of eating at home – can you imagine how wonderful that was for them?!
And then on the last night, we had a small cake delivered to our villa after dinner so we could have a surprise birthday party for our daughter. Not only did the staff bring cake, but some of them came and joined us in the celebration… bringing champagne, food, cake … and a small gift that they had purchase for her themselves. She was so touched that she cried! Again – wow!!!
