“Sometimes being without Wi-Fi, cell service, Instagram, Twitter, and emails is exactly what you need. I loved staying in Zimbabwe. I loved seeing the animals and being a visitor in their home. (Yes that includes huge spiders but it was a fair trade off for BABY ELEPHANTS.) There were no ovens and all the cooking was on the fire! Delicious. Loved our guide, Spike. Unparalleled knowledge of wildlife and nature. GL & I loved sitting by the fire and learning about the constellations above us. @hwangebushcamp @premiertoursAF”

"An African safari vacation, is for my money, an experience of a life time. But planning it can be a supreme challenge - time consuming, sometimes frustrating, and if not done right, enormously expensive. African Safari is a traveler's treasure - chockfull of tips, destination and wildlife information, resources, and personal testimonies from folks who have safari-ed. I wish I had read it when I planned my first trip to Africa"
"This is the quickest, simplist handbook I've found on big game safaris. If you thumb through these pages, you'll realize that your dream trip is really possible."
"An essential primer for any first timer planning an African safari."
Eugene at Premier Tours is fantastic!!!! We feel like we received concierge service with Premier Tours and can not recommend them highly enough. Eugene impressed us with his eagerness to understand specifically what our family was looking to get out of our trip, his communication and responsiveness and his wealth of knowledge regarding "everything South Africa". Throughout our trip, we regularly noted details that we had not even thought about, but that Eugene had clearly made sure were taken care of. The places he chose for us to stay all exceeded our expectations. We can't wait to plan our next trip with him!
There are many reasons why you and your firm are ranked the best in the world every year. Hard work, great people, longstanding relationships with your providers, absolute attention to detail, a can do attitude, and many more attributes. All the best to the very best! South Africa, Botswana, and Zimbabwe
Julian Harrison planned an excellent three week trip to Botswana, Victoria Falls and Rwanda for my husband and me in March 2017. He was extremely responsive during the planning process, with a long phone call to discuss our trip objectives and budget, followed up with an extensive proposed itinerary, which he easily revised as we made decisions about the trip. Because of his depth of knowledge of Botswana and Rwanda, he was able to create an itinerary for us that showed us the diversity of areas in each country. This is our third experience using one of Wendys recommended agents and every trip has been done extremely well. I can highly recommend Julian Harrison – in fact, I’ve already given his name to several people who are planning trips – you won’t be disappointed in the trip he plans for you. - Review courtesy of Wendy Perrin's Wow List
Greetings! Brad and I want to extend our sincere "THANK YOU" for arranging the most wonderful journey. Every service was flawless. All accommodations were outstanding and gracious. We really cannot quite express our delight with the entire adventure. We have been fortunate to have traveled quite a bit and have seen many great sites, cultures and attractions around the world. But, this journey was by far, the most thrilling and best experience in our lives. We both are in awe of nature once again, as we should be. The animals were incredible , the guides knowledgeable and most responsive. The food was top notch and so wonderfully presented at each meal, regardless of sunset with a hyena or in one of the dining rooms.
