We had a wonderful time in Colombia! The mix of locations were wonderful - from modern & lively Bogota, to historical old city of Cartagena, to the secluded beaches of Tayrona NP. All our transfers ran like clockwork, and our guides were fun, knowledgeable, and easy going. To top it off - we got engaged on the trip! Truly one for the books. :)

We have used Cox&Kings many times. The ease of planning with staff who know the area in question and can tailor the itinerary according to one's needs is attractive. We have found the speed of confirming the booking exemplary and the pricing very fair. We have never been let down on the ground and on our last trip were very impressed by the action the ground agents were able to take to look after us when there were issues beyond their control affecting our travel within the country we were visiting. We recognise this is a competitive market and after using other companies have returned C&K. Thoroughly recommend

At its peak during the dry season, the park offers a range of activities, including walking safaris, game drives and most notably, incredible canoeing. Your deluxe safari camp lies on the banks of the Zambezi, shaded by a large grove of acacia and mahogany trees and with a superb view of the mountains of Africa’s Great Rift Valley across the river in Zambia. There is an open-air lounge, dining area and plunge pool. A recessed conversation deck is built around a fire pit out over the river.
