Jeremy and Carrie, seasoned guides, provided us with their many years' experience and allowed us to have wonder and discovery! The boat ride on the Zambezi River was exciting and sensuous and a wonderful introduction to South Africa bush! Victoria Falls was vast and breathtaking... a glorious setting for moms and dads to fall in love again. The kids were effervescent and overflowing with awe at the Falls! The safari was the main attraction, the photographic game drive in the open-air small vehicles and guides took us very up close to Rhinos, groups of lions grooming themselves, pairs of cheetahs, and groups of elephant families at the watering hole!! The herds of zebras were the best, and we loved being pampered by the entire staff at the Rhulani Safari Lodge, located in an immense Madikwe Game Reserve. All the choices Jeremy and Carrie Simmons of Travel With Kids (TWK), provided us with insight, discovery, relaxation, and joy! We will be spreading the word to our friends and colleagues.

A once in a lifetime experience!! Seeing wildlife up close is spine tingling, the people were so friendly everywhere we went and it was amazing to see different aspects of South Africa. Walking thru its history was really impactful. A trip our family won’t forget!!

My 12 year old son and I had a wonderful experience in Thailnad. The guides were so wonderful! Knowledgeable, patient and never left our sides. We felt safe the entire time and absolutely loved our elephants experience. The temples were beautiful and my son loved floating in the river and playing in the waterfalls. The other families on the tour were great too. It made it nice to have others for my son to spend time with as we traveled to other locations by bus etc.
