We are a UK couple who travel as frequently as possible and just to start we need to admit our bias, as this was our third trip to Africa with ATI, and it will not be our last. Each trip they have delivered more than expected or requested and to date our travels with ATI include, South Africa, Botswana, Zambia and Namibia!

They share their vast knowledge and experience to ensure you achieve a really interesting itinerary, and from our perspective, excellent accommodation. Our most recent trip in May/June 15 was definitely the most challenging, as we were taking three elderly family members, (75-85) who had never been to Africa before and they wanted the full experience in non-malarial Namibia. Mureal organised a fly drive trip which combined Namibia’s fantastic scenery (Fish River Canyon and the Soussousvlei dunes) with some amazing wildlife viewing, and she ensured that the lodges we visited were aware of our group’s restricted mobility.

We stayed at some exceptional lodges and good old Cornerstone at Swakupmund and when we did have a problem Mureal was able to resolve our issues, contactable on the ATI mobile we were given at the outset. She came up trumps when my mother had an accident and needed a wheelchair for the last part of the trip. We mention Mureal because as our contact she was fantastic, even down to helping organise restaurants and where to go for the best biltong, but as she graciously says, she is just one of the excellent, ATI team. Apologies for being overly effusive but sometimes exceptionally good service needs to be recognised and our views are based on three great experiences, which has to be more than luck.

Thanks to Mureal and all at ATI – we can now boast to have not only seen the desert elephants but also a black rhino in the wild, as well as in Erindi. Many thanks ATI. Anne and Jon
