We toured three parks in the Serengeti in Tanzania with Opulent Africa. First and foremost the animals were the focus of the vacation. We saw everything we went to see with the exception of a river crossing on the Mara River in the Northern Serengeti. Crossings depend on when and where it rains. You can't control the rain which controls the movements of the animals. We stayed in three different camps. The first was a permanent tented camp and it was spectacular. The second a tented camp, it was nice but needed improvement. The third was a luxury tented camp near the Mara River and it was a really special place. We decided on tented camps because you are very close to the animals. We had elephants ten feet from our tent. Also, tented camps put you closer to the animals and reduces travel time to get to them. This is an important factor. The parks are open dawn to dusk. You can not enter into the parks before daylight and must be back at your camp at dark.The animals are most active in early morning and late evening. The closer you are to the animals the more viewing time you will have and the more you will see. These tents are not your Mom and Pops tent, this is glamping. Full services, breakfast, lunch including full alcohol service. We had two different drivers, the first was Richard and he he was personable and very welcoming. He was very knowledgeable and was the perfect companion. The second driver Alex was also very personable and very knowledgeable. Two completely different people, but both were excellent at what they do. These were good choices on the companies part. Your drivers are your lifeline to a successful safari. Both of these gentleman are very special people and are good friends. The most important part of a safari is your interaction between the driver and guests. John the owner and his staff did a wonderful job of making all the arrangements and making our safari a trip of a life time. Thank you Opulent Africa!

I was working with another travel company on a custom tour to Kenya, Rwanda and Madagascar. As you might imagine this is a project that takes literally months to put together correctly. Two weeks out from our departure date the entire trip fell apart because the travel coordinator went on vacation without remotely completing our arrangements. In a complete panic I went on line and took a blind leap of faith in choosing Opulent Travel to somehow do in 10 days what should normally take several weeks to organize correctly. In what was rapidly becoming a total disaster, the travel gods placed us into the amazingly capable hands of Donna and in those 10 days she performed what I consider to be a major miracle of last minute coordination. Not only did she manage to get the entire trip organized, but with her personal contacts she found us some of the most incredible sites and venues I have ever seen in my multiple African trips. And in a journey this complex with the opportunity for countless particulars to go astray, every single detail of this trip was perfect and flawlessly executed. Unbelievable!!!

We visited Kenya to masai mara samuru and amoseli last December for a photo safari and it was beyond our expectations,we took the most stunning photos,with this safari fitter.
They have excellent professional guides,from KPSGA who knows where to on the right time,very informative and friendly.
We did the safari with Andrew and it was worth it.Keep it up opulent Africa tours team,see you this July for migration,which we miss in our photo library.

This is a very expensive company to book with, so meticulous attention to detail and excellence of service was my expectation. Although things were overall OK, they did not meet what I expected for such a high priced "opulent" service.
