Rothschild Safaris is outstanding in every respect. My wife and I just completed our third bespoke African safari trip with them (Kenya), and we have two additional trips to South Africa planned with them for 2022.
Trip after trip, Rothschild Safaris manages to exceed the lofty expectations that they have already established. Their safari planner’s advice as to when and where to go, where to stay, and what to do are always spot on. Bookings are superlative, and the safari camps are amazing with fantastic accommodations, attentive staff, wonderful food, and incredible guides. Once you are in Rothschild’s capable hands, the planning is enjoyable, informative, and impeccable and once you leave on your journey, everything runs like clockwork from the time that you land at your destination until the time that you fly home.
We had to reschedule some of our recent trips due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Rothschild’s staff members were very understanding and worked with us to make sure that everything was rebooked to our satisfaction and with no penalties. They walked us through all the travel requirements related to COVID-19 to ensure that everything ran smoothly.
The Rothschild staff is highly professional, amazingly competent, and always warm and welcoming. They are so excited every time that they book a “trip of our dreams” for us, and they check in with us during and after the trip to make sure that there are no problems and that everything went well. Rothschild Safaris is a top-flight, one-stop shop for all things “safari.”
I cannot imagine traveling with any other safari outfitter and I consider them to be the top safari outfitter in the world with no exception.
Tonight we return to the states and our presence here in Africa will be no more. However, because of you and your team; our souls will forever remain a part of this beautiful place. I don’t know how to thank all of you enough. The itinerary , the stops, the people and places we encountered along the entire journey went off like clockwork. From the minute we stepped through the health check until we were returned safely to our flight, it was seamless.
They say perfection is an unattainable goal; that nothing is perfect. After what you and you’re team did for us, that phrase may not have the same meaning anymore because for Maribeth and I , this was perfect.
Please pass along our thanks to everyone involved.
My friend Greg Carr shared a saying with me when he decided to help the people or Gorongosa. “ If you can only visit two continents in your life time, then choose Africa twice”. How right he is.
Look forward to our next adventure with you.
5 stars! Great trip! Rothschild provided professional guidance and impeccable service again (2nd trip with Rothschild!). Our guides were always prompt and ready to take us where we needed to be. Our travel designer exceeded our expectations, keeping us continually updated with the changing covid landscape
It was an amazing trip. My travel designer was first rate! All in all we received better service than we expected. Way to go Rothschild, you are top rate!
This was the best vacation we have ever taken. Every detail was planned and executed above our expectations. Our trip changed many times due to Covid and Rothschild was there every step of the way to help us. Airport guides and transfers where always on time and very helpful eliminating travel stress.
It was the best experience of my life. I will absolutely be going back. The camps were incredible and I met some lifelong friends. The ladies I was beading with invited me to their village for the evening and my husband had to drag me back to camp or I would have stayed! Our guide was superb. I appreciate all your efforts, the trip was flawless.
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!!
We were thrilled with the trip. It was as good as or better than described at every turn. The prep, attention to detail, willingness to make changes and ensure we were ready and prepared was outstanding. Our Travel Designer was awesome! She understood our goals, worked with us to create an amazing trip, made changes when we had someone drop out of our group, ensured only the best experience and was fun to work with! couldn’t have been better! We loved every minute. Thank you!
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….although we probably tried to do too much and didn’t build in enough “relaxing” time. The team at Rothschild along with the on-the-ground support in Africa, made sure that they were in constant contact with us. The camps and guides were superb, the guidance they gave was “spot on” and their responsiveness beyond our expectations. If you are looking for a custom adventure, look no further than Rothschild….you will not be disappointed.
It was a well organized trip. It was easy to get around since we were guided through all of our itinerary. Everyone was pleasant and very helpful. This is an excellent way to travel. Rothschild Safari did very well and brought a fantastic African experience to us. Thank you! Comments on your travel designer: I think you all did very well especially Megan, who dealt with us knowing that we have never traveled to Africa and its hard to explain to newbies the Continent they will be travelling to, never mind the individual countries.
My trip was beyond AMAZING! I truly enjoyed every moment. The itinerary allowed me to experience a variety of different activities all of which I enjoyed! When I originally thought of going to Africa I was just thinking of safaris. This trip opened my eyes (and my family/friend’s) to so much more Africa has to offer.
I cannot THANK everyone enough who made this trip so INCREDIBLE! I will be talking about it for a long long time! I will be highly recommending your company to family and friends!
Trip was PERFECT!! Every single detail was planned out and the accommodations and people were wonderful. This trip exceeded all of our wildest expectations.
Every place we stayed was just lovely and each each camp had a different vibe, which was really neat. Everyone we worked with was outstanding. Thank you for creating the most perfect itinerary for our family holiday. The memories we made and the experiences we shared will last a lifetime and we could not be more grateful.
On behalf of the Moravec’s and the Stone’s……thank you for arranging a trip of a lifetime. Every detail was accounted for and all the recommendations were perfect. It honestly could not have gone any better.
Meggan Woody and Kim Killick were extraordinary at crafting THE PERFECT safari for our family of 8. They both listened (actually ‘read’ my email) to EXACTLY what we wanted, within the budget that we needed, and miraculously pulled off miracles in obtaining the properties that we wanted! When working with them, I felt that I was the ONLY customer that they had! They answered emails quickly and with CHARM and HUMOR! As a matter of fact, I loved working with them so much, that I have tentatively scheduled a trip out to Denver in order to meet them personally!
Every aspect of my trip went according to plan and the plan Rothschild’s help me to orchestrate was magnificent!
I loved every lodge that I was blessed to be in! They were all very different yet all high end and very accommodating. From the location of the lodges to the rooms to the food to the incredible staff, every aspect was excellent. Leora has an excellent team, they strive to get it right and make their clients trip an amazing experience. They listen to the desires of their clients and mold just the right package for them. I was extremely impressed at all the hand holding and organization that goes on behind the scenes. The package of information (detailed booklet) that arrived before I left was my bible while I was traveling in a foreign country on a solo journey. Jessica, Tanaya and their team covered every detail, nothing was left to question. I truly am grateful to all of the team at Rothschild for helping to make this trip happen for me, it was an experience that I will never forget. I think if I hadn’t been so well looked after by the handlers, guides, lodge managers and staff the trip would have not been the same. I could completely relax and forget about any concerns knowing I was in good and well organized hands. I’ve never been so at ease on a holiday.
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!
We had such a wonderful time on our trip! Many thanks to you all for organising and planning so perfectly.
Everything ran so smoothly, and I was particularly impressed by the way we did not have to think about any of the arrangements – it was all done for us! Everybody, from guides to hotel/safari camp staff were so very organised and friendly! The only time we were a little bit intimidated was at a few of the airports/border crossings – so it was really wonderful to have guides to help us through. A really nice touch was the assistance at Nairobi where the guides were waiting for us as we got off the plane!
You guys exceeded my expectations. The trip was a once in a lifetime experience that I’ll treasure for the rest of my life. Thank you.
Our trip was amazing, and it truly exceeded our expectations. When we left for Africa, I figured it was a once in a lifetime experience. Now we are already thinking about when we will be able to return.
I wanted to express our appreciation for the fantastic planning and attention to detail, in addition to the various ‘surprises’ you planted along the way. They were delightful.
Again, thanks very much. I just can’t tell you how great it was. Best trip of our lives, and we’ve been on a lot of fantastic adventures.
Rothschilds had people with us every step of the way. This was a trip of a lifetime and we got lucky to have the best tour guides arranged. I can’t thank the Rothschilds team enough for guiding us through every step of our journey. Imagine being in the bush on safari for a week with no internet connection, flying on a small plane an arriving at a new location and being greeted by a Rothschild rep. We will be booking all further trips with them
We lucked out or were so very well taken care of. Almost every guide arranged for us was the premiere guide in the area. We learned this by listening to other guides checking in for directions from our guides.
I have no words for the quality of everything related to this trip.
Beautiful lodges with excellent activities and locations.
One of my best trips of my life has been with Rothschild safaris. We will definitely do another one soon.
I absolutely loved my trip!! Everything went along perfectly. I actually had a group of people traveling together ask me if I made my own arrangements. I laughed and said no way that I had a safari company that has arranged five safaris for me. One of them said that I must like my safari company and I said that I trust them from the time I get off the plane to the when we are dropped back at the airport.
Guides were excellent (well-informed & fun to be around), activities were engaging and “as-described,” and all personnel were helpful and attentive. The trip ran very smoothly, and the information provided before we left the US by Rothschild personnel was helpful and complete. Overall, a wonderful trip! Our Travel Designer was very accommodating and excellent at listening to what we wanted. Executed our vision perfectly!
My husband and I just returned from an eight week trip to Africa. Pam Langhoff planned the entire trip for us and did an incredible job. We visited seven countries, which meant a lot of safari decisions and travel arrangements needed to be made. Pam’s recommendations were spot on – we enjoyed a wide variety of national parks/game reserves and avoided redundancies. The landscapes and animals were mind-blowing and there were so many “wow” moments during the trip. When we were in Africa, all the transitions were seamless and Pam’s team was very responsive to our email messages. During the planning process, Pam was very helpful and patient. She paid close attention to what we wanted and her vast knowledge of Africa was so useful.
Like many other travelers, I fell in love with Africa and will definitely use Rothschild Safaris for my next trip. I am confident that they will plan a fantastic vacation and Africa will surpass all my expectations!
Africa completely blew my mind and surpassed all my expectations. I continue to think about our trip and can’t wait to go back after a few years.
Everyone I worked with at Rothschild Safaris was super professional and friendly. We couldn’t have planned this trip by ourselves. I will definitely use them again.
I learned of RS via Travel and Leisure as I started doing my research on possible Safari companies. From the beginning RS team was very easy to work with and most of all VERY patient! Creating a trip for 5 ladies can be overwhelming and they listen, adjusted, returned, cancelled, recommended, adjusted again and again….. From the beginning Kim and Meggan really helped us create a bespoke Safari, trip of my dreams! Overall satisfaction 5* ++++++ 🙂
