You’ll find online reviews under each journey at, and here are a few reviews of our African safaris to get you started thinking about your next adventure…

Botswana, South Africa & Zambia

My sister and I just returned from this trip, and I am sure everyone we know is so tired of hearing about the unbelievable sightings and experiences we shared. Nonstop animals, each and every day (and night), wonderful lodges, incredible guides, fabulous Tauck Director – sleeping out on the salt pans under the stars, breathless experiences. Our most memorable moment was on the Chobe River surrounded by 300+ elephants playing just like children. To see these huge animals throwing themselves around, splashing each other, playing with the little ones – such a truly awesome sight, very profound.

Chobe River - Elephant

Kenya & Tanzania: A Classic Safari

This was a most amazing trip. We had an excellent Tauck Director who guided us to all the wonderful sights. We got to see the Big Five [lion, buffalo, rhinoceros, leopard, elephant] and many up close and personal. Although the roads were quite bumpy, our vehicles were comfortable. The flights between destinations were fun and efficient. Great accommodations also. It is hard to choose a most memorable moment because all were memorable. Meals in the bush, petting a cheetah, standing with one foot in southern hemisphere and one foot in northern hemisphere and, of course, the balloon ride and the elephant orphanage watching baby elephants bottle feed themselves.

Victoria Falls

South Africa: An Elegant Adventure

Starting in Cape Town, going to Kruger National Park, on to Johannesburg and finishing in Victoria Falls, this trip was at the top of all vacations I have ever taken. The accommodations were 5 star, the food was excellent, the game drives were amazing, but best of all was the Tauck Director, who could not have been better. Within half an hour, we saw a pride of two male and nine female lions, followed by a leopard carrying its dead prey and a few minutes later three giraffes and 13 buffalo.

Tanzania: Serengeti to Zanzibar

Seeing lions, zebras, giraffes and elephants up close is an incredible thrill that truly made this a trip of a lifetime. Our Tauck Director and driver-guides were exceptional. Seeing the beginning of the great wildebeest migration was awesome. We loved everything. Our most memorable moment has to be the hot air balloon ride over the Serengeti. Watching the sunrise from our balloon and seeing the animals below made this a ‘bucket list’ experience before we even knew it was on our list. This was just one of hundreds of incredible experiences on this trip. Great memories made for a lifetime!

Tanzania: A Grand Family Safari

We were able to share our trip to Tanzania with our daughter and her family. Not a leisure beach vacation, but an absolutely fantastic experience of a lifetime. The tour was well organized… Our fab five local tour guides made the tour GREAT. Every day was a different and wonderful experience. The day we saw the lions eating their giraffe prey, the cheetah we finally found, the beautiful sunrises, the baby lion cubs, the amazing balloon ride, the sleeping leopard right over the road, the water buffalo sleeping just outside our tent. All of this with wonderful accommodations and food.

Kids on Safari

South Africa: Epic Family Adventure

We took our granddaughter on this trip as a Bat Mitzvah gift, and she had a blast. The trip leader and safari guides were great, the hotels were wonderful with great service and fabulous food, everything was taken care of and well planned… and there were lots of activities for the kids – both young and old. On the final morning game drive, we came upon two leopards high up in a tree with a lion beneath the tree and right next to our Jeep. The lion had chased the leopards up and was eating some kill. We just watched until he finished, walked off, and then we watched the leopards come down and walk off!!
