Still in shock and awe regarding our experience!

Wow, wow, wow!! We are back in LA now, recovering from jet lag and still in shock and awe regarding our experience. From the moment we landed in South Africa to the moment we touched down in LA, our experience was seamless and amazing. Thank you for making our journey so memorable. We are very grateful for your professionalism and perfect execution of a rather complex itinerary and are singing your praises to all of our friends!!


Rothschild listened ….really listened to what we wanted to experience.

Choosing a safari expert is never easy given the choice and lists upon lists of “top suppliers”….but we made the BEST choice for us….why….because above all, Rothschild listened ….really listened to what we wanted to experience. This was a trip for four great friends gathering in Tanzania from all over the world and we loved every minute….


The whole team was remarkable for their prompt and friendly responses. 

It was the most exciting, scenic, inspiring trip we’ve ever taken. To say it was a trip of a lifetime doesn’t begin to capture our experience. Pam Langhoff and the Rothschild team did an outstanding job of helping us plan this trip. Pam really listened to our concerns and opinions and was so helpful as we sorted out what sort of experience we were seeking. She had endless patience for our constant emails and frequent phone calls. The whole team was remarkable for their prompt and friendly responses. Then the execution of the plan was flawless! Not a hitch anywhere along the way! It far, far exceeded anything we had imagined before leaving. I’m sure the use of superlatives is overkill, but I don’t know how else to express it! What an incredible experience for our family! Rothschild is an outstanding team!
