We lived in the African bush for 10 days. Accommodations were wonderful - tents with nice furniture and attached bathrooms. Plenty of hot water! Food was delicious and quite sophisticated. But the best were the wildlife experiences led by an extremely knowledgeable and personable guide. All the staff were kind and professional. Read more

Me and my wife had a great safari last summer where we did 11 days safari with Denham holidays. we had a very good guide who always asked as many questions to make sure we understood. we feel knowledgeable after this safari. We already think of going back early 2019 or mid to watch the great wildebeest migration at Masai Mara Read more

Experience Botswana Surrounded by Beauty & Romance

We just returned home from our trip to the Duba and Zarafa camps! WOW! Without a doubt, both of these camps were exceptional. The decor and layout of our rooms was absolutely stunning. Our game drives were terrific—almost daily afternoon rainstorms provided us with some of the best rainbows we’ve ever seen. The daytime temperatures were comfortable and very pleasant this time of year. We had a wonderful time and highly recommend either of these camps for a first class experience. If I had to choose between them, I think I would pick the Duba camp since it was newly renovated and closer to the airstrip— but both camps truly are fantastic. Read more

Lion World Travel Company Reviews

Simply outstanding. I took my 4 grown children on the Classic Tanzania trip the end of May 2017. We saw every animal over and over and babies everywhere. Lion World through Costco were outstanding to work with. I travel 100,000 plus miles a year and when I say there was not one thing I would change about this trip, I am sincere. Keep in mind all the tour companies go to the same areas where the animals are most likely to be and I guarantee folks paid twice as much as Lion World charges for the same sights. The hotels were outstanding along with the food. 27 countries later, this was our favorite trip as a family. I paid, we showed up and they did the rest.
Thank you Lion World, Cheryl you rock
