We had a wonderful time at Duba Expedition camp. We spent New Year's Eve, and my daughter's birthday there, and everything was organised with tremendous attention to detail, far beyond the call of duty. For instance, Jessica, one of the camp managers and a celebrated pastry chef, had gone to the trouble of making a beautiful cake for Tessa's birthday, and she and Alastair had set up a champagne bar. She will never forget her birthday under the African sky.

Our guide, Kops, was so informative and passionate about the landscape, the wildlife and especially the birds, that every day was an adventure. We saw masses of animals, and big herds of elephant and buffalo, and the ubiquitous lions, so well fed on the many species of antelope that they were gleaming with health and almost comatose with gluttony in the late afternoon. Kops showed us so many things of great interest which we would never have noticed ourselves, and with his own particular grace and humour. He was a shing star.

Speaking of which, I should mention a wonderful 'sundowner' we had. We were driving back from the plains, and around some trees, and were astounded to see a full camp set up in the bush. A campfire with chairs around it, rugs and cushions, and an entire cocktail bar, manned by Anderson, who had made a special creation, "The Ginger Duba", and very delicious it was too. We sat and watched that pink and navy blue sky as the sun went down, and if it weren't for Herman, the chef, who had provided the most delicious canapés, we could have sat there for ever, had he not needed to get back to the camp and provide us with yet another delicious dinner.

Going back to Herman, who was great fun, we had beautiful food, served in a very relaxed atmosphere. We could eat at a big table, with the rest of the guests, on our own as a family, with Alistair and Jessica or the other lovely manager, or with one of the guides. Everything was so relaxed, and whatever anyone wanted at the time was absolutely no problem. Herman is quite some cookie, and provided lunches and dinners that would receive accolades in a top London restaurant. I just don't know how he does it, and I am missing him dreadfully, as my own grudging efforts on my return seem pitifully inadequate.

All in all, it was a marvellous trip. We have been to various African countries before, and on quite a few safaris, but this one was very special. I love the ethos of Botswana, and this was a very important trip for us as we have recently suffered a family tragedy. The kindness and sensitivity, warmth and FUN, of everyone in Duba Camp played a big role in healing our hearts and I will never forget it.

Just returned from a visit to to Duba -- we had a terrific experience! We couldn't have asked for a better setting for our first trip to Botswana -- the camp itself is gorgeously situated, the staff was warm and welcoming, the food was exceptional (thanks, Herman!) and our guide, Kops, was just wonderful (knowledgable, kind, fun). In addition to seeing all kinds of animals at very close range (lions, hippos, buffalo, hyena, baboons, just to name a few), we saw over 100 different kinds of birds, which Kops helped us to identify.

We spent three weeks touring Nepal and India. We can really recommend Safhands Travel and especially Mr. Rohit. The tour and itinerary suggested by Rohit was excellent. The service received by the Safehands representatives, welcomers, drivers and guides was first class. We will treasure our memories of this holiday. Thank you Rohit.

Me my wife and our daughter had no problems all over the tour as Mr Rohit has planned exaclty the way we wanted it to be. Besides then a small room problem in Shimla ca use the room was small and there don't have running hot water as other hotels cause we had a child and we were first time feeling the chills of winter but it's was settled by Rohit as he promised us. Regarding the firts driver I think he is not fit to be a tour driver, beginning was okay but towards then end he was slacking but that to was settled by Rohit, by giving us a new driver.but overall we was happy and enjoyed the cold weather which we wanted to experience once in a life time as we are from Malaysia. We will come back to India and will get Rohit from Safe Hands to do the arrangements again. Will recommend to all who wish to travel to India SAFE HANDS TRAVELS. Thank you Rohit SAFE HANDS TRAVELS. All the best you.
