This was the only trip where the experience exceeded our expectations. And we are pretty seasoned travelers. Russell was an exceptional guide. I called him the animal whisperer. He must have eyes in the back of his head! His sense of humor was greatly appreciated and his patience with novice African travelers was great.
I kept calling this magnificent cape buffalo (see photo above) a water buffalo, and he patiently corrected me every time. His sense of humor fit into our group like a glove. Also, his knowledge of the animals, birds, and plants was like having Wikipedia in our land cruiser. I must acknowledge his driving skills and familiarity of the area, which was vast! To be able to drive that distance on those roads without “GPS” was amazing. Having just one guide was the key to our wonderful experience.
ADS does an excellent job at delivering a “trip of a lifetime”! This had been on my bucket list for a time and when by brother Eric also wanted to experience Africa at its best-we jumped at the opportunity to see this magnificent piece of the planet.
A private safari is the only way to go! We would do this again in a heartbeat with the very same people!
