Hi Jen,We’re home and trying to get our days and night back on track, I’m still on Africa time!!  Well, where do I begin?!  What an amazing trip, I can’t thank you enough for all of your help through the planning and preparing stages, we couldn’t have done this without your experience and advice.  I do want to say our accommodations were fantastic, I absolutely loved Bougainvillea, Mapito and Maramboi.  Absolutely outstanding!!  I cannot say enough about that experience.  Rhino Lodge was ok, not our favorite but rooms were clean and the dining area was really nice.  The box lunches were ok, not great, but plenty of food, we definitely didn’t go hungry.  The safari was amazing, each day was better and better.  Just when we’d think all we would see was another zebra, we’d come upon an amazing find.  We saw 40 lions, including cubs, some big males, 3 sets of brothers, two females with cubs and a recently killed wildebeest.  We saw a leopard try to take down a baby zebra, an elephant pushed our jeep, we saw lions mating.  It was just one thing after the next.  And we saw a rhino in the crater.  It was a cold day and a very long day but we completed our big 5 that day.  The Serengeti is amazing, just truly spectacular.  But overall Jen, we loved every minute of this trip.  We will definitely go back again, it was just so amazing.  Hearing the excitement in my daughter’s voice when she spotted a lion before any of us, and seeing the smiles on our girls’ faces and now, looking at our pictures and our videos and reliving those moments that are just indescribable.  I cannot thank you enough.  The staff at all of our camps/lodges were amazing, the people were so friendly.  Akuna matata!!  We certainly felt that during our time there.  I will recommend you and Heritage Safaris to anyone planning such an adventure.  We appreciated your wisdom and experience, you prepared us very well for this different world and it will be a time that we will never forget!
