Sri Lanka
Car + Driver holiday
Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage, Sri Lanka
12 nights Sri Lanka
Chaaya Village Habarana, Earls Regency Kandy, Tea Factory Nuwara Eliya, Chaaya Wild Yala, Club Bentota
"Hi Mark

Sorry it's taken me so long to e mail. Just wanted to say thank you for organising such a fantastic holiday. Think it comes close to one of the best trips we've been on. The whole thing ran so smoothly with no hitches and the driver was fantastic (Henry). He suggested things but never forced us to do things we weren't keen on.

The lodges were amazing and having most meals made life really easier. Bentota bit touristy for us bit once we got used to it quite a relaxing way to end holiday, though were glad had reduced number of days here and added to Yala. Even the weather did us proud!

What also helped were the upgrades to honeymoon quarters!! Took us awhile to realise what was happening - after the second congratulations / good luck msg on bed it dawned on us and we rode with it! Even the driver said he'd been told to be extra nice to us as just married!! Bonus - so thanks! Once again thank you for all you did for us"

Tanzania Safari &
Zanzibar Beach
On Safari in Tanzania
12 nights Tanzania
Sable Mountain Lodge Selous
Neptune Pwani Beach Resort Zanzibar
"Mark - a quick email to say how much we enjoyed our holiday.

We were particularly impressed with Sable Mountain lodge- the staff were really accomodating and knowledgeable and the food was fantastic. One comment - a torch would be very handy as it is pitch dark. The first night we were the only ones there. We saw loads of animals (2 lions/loads of zebra,elephants,giraffes,impala,crocodiles and hippo) and only one other truck of tourists! It felt very unspoilt and remote. We also went to a local Masai village which was worthwhile.

Also, all connections worked really well - someone was always waiting for us at each connection point. The light aircraft were a real experience with my daughter being talked through the controls and procedures on the trip from Selous to Zanzibar.

Sandies Neptune ticked all the boxes and lived up to the photos and descriptions - Sable Mountain lodge, however, being small and intimate was favorite.

And we were not asked about the yellow fever jab!

Thank-you for all your help and patience!

Best regards

"Hi Karen and Mark,

I would like to thank you both for helping myself and my girlfriend choose an amazing holiday to Kenya and Zanzibar. The Cheetah safari we went on was fantastic. Nicholas our driver for the week was so helpful and nice. 

Zanzibar, Diamonds La Gemma Dell Est is a fantastic place. We didn't venture out of our hotel for the week because it was so good. I would sincerely hope to visit both countries again sometime.

I would give this holiday and your assistance a 10 out of 10. Thank you

"Hi Karen,

Keep meaning to drop you a e-mail but been so busy since we have been back, feel like a lifetime since we went!

Just wanted to thank you for arranging the most wonderful holiday ever!

We all had such a amazing time, everything was so well organised and ran so smoothly. Flights including connecting ones to masai etc were fab and a experience in themselves!

Safari was out of this world we see eveything other than rhino. Lion cub, leapord cubs, lion kill you name it we saw it. Ashnil Mara Camp I can highly recommend. Such a beautiful place. Would 100% return there in the future. Our tour guide on safari gave us a fab drive every day. Thumbs up to Zen. Very nice and informative man!

Southern Palms was out of this world. Pool and beach fantastic! Had a few little hick ups on arrival and when we were dining but soon sorted that all out and the remainder of out stay was wonderful. New years eve was one of the best The Africans certainly know how to throw a party!!!!!!!!! Would definatly recommend yourselves and Somak as a company you have both been brilliant.

Would book through yourselfs again as none of us could fault either of you. Thank you so much again.

"Hi Mark,

The Kenya trip was excellent.

The staff from Somak were also excellent. Please feel free to give Somak our address. Thank you for your and your companies help- I will certainly recommend you to anyone who is thinking about a similar trip.

ps- I am hoping to persuade my wife to try Sri Lanka next year!

"Hi Karen

Just a quick note to say that we have just arrived back from our holiday in Kenya. Oh my God, what an experience...... it was absolutely amazing - from the safari lodges, to the game drives, and onto the hotel in Mombasa - it was fantastic!!!!!!

Can't thank you enough for arranging this trip for us, especially the upgrade to Ashnil Mara.

We will obviously be thinking of another holiday next year and will be contacting you to see what you can offer us, possibly Thailand or Goa (hopefully)!!

Once again thank you very much for all your advice and guidance , it really was appreciated.

Kenya Safari &
Mombasa Beach

On safari
7 nights Ashnil Mara Camp
5 nights Mombasa - Cove Treehouses

"Dear Mark Just returned from Safari/beach in Kenya and.........WOW!

I cannot not say how again you have exceeded my expectations on holidays you have organised, Somak were great and the whole 8 days were perfect, both tented camp and treehouse were unbeleiveable, great food, staff, guides on Safari and the care and attention.

Special note- the treehouses were excellent, I have never done nothing and thought about doing nothing, while in the jacuzzi listening and taking the in the Indian ocean, being interuppted by the chef asking what we want to order, what time and location-suberb! We got the relaxing holiday we were looking for, in fact it felt like we were gone twice as long as we were away.

Thanks so much and I will be using you again, even if we live in different countries - if there is another way I can recommend you and your company, pls let me know Regards

Thanks again."

Tanzania Safari &
Zanzibar holiday
Serengeti Plains
6 night Glimpses of Tanzania Safari
8 nights Neptune Pwani Beach Resort

"Been back a couple of months now and can't wait to go back, I just love everything about Africa. This safari was very different to Kenya but still amazing. The locations of each camp were brilliant and the accommodation we couldn't fault. I loved the tents in the Serengeti and could have stayed there longer. The array of animals we saw was wonderful all thanks to our driver who was very observant and got us close to everything. We had 5 flights in this holiday and everything went very smoothly.

Zanzibar was lovely and reminded me a bit of the Maldives, white powdery sand and turquoise seas. The Neptune Pwani Hotel was lovely albeit on the large side but was only half full when we were there, food good with lots of choices, accommodation very comfortable with nice big airy rooms. Can't fault this holiday at all and would do it again but Africa is a big place and I want to see as much of it as I can.

Thank you Mark for all your help and advice.l"

Beach holiday
Kuramathi Island Resort, Maldives
14 nights Maldives - Kuramathi Island Resort


Just to say we had a fabulous holiday - everything went so well. Kuramathi is really lovely - plenty to do if you want, or not! Basic All Inclusive excellent - food in the main restaurant is very varied, we were very happy not to chase about to different places each night, lovely though they might be. Perfect beak. Many thanks for all the help.

Best wishes"

Safari and beach holiday
On safari in Tanzania
6 night Tanzanian safari - Serena Serengeti
4 nights Zanzibar - Bluebay Beach Resort

"Dear Mark - Writing to say we are now safely back after a very good holiday. We want to say thanks for organising it and being so helpful.. All the arrangements went without a hitch and Somak and their representatives were very efficient and helpful. We had a very good driver on safari who found interesting animals for us to see - including several lions and a leopard close to, although no cheetah. He changed our itinerary a bit so that we went to Masai village our first afternoon at the crater and then had a full day in the crater which is what we all wanted. We also had a full day in the Serengeti. We thought the lodges were of a very good standard and the food good .

We enjoyed our stay at Blue Bay and again thought the hotel very good with excellent food. (we both ate too much and put on 4 - 6 lbs!) We thought the trips on offer were fairly expensive but did have one day out - half day in Stone Town and half to Prison island with snorkling which we were keen to do. Again had a pleasant helpful guide. By the way we didn't have to pay an exit tax.

Overall it was a very good trip and we could not fault the organisation by yourself and Escapeworldwide. Two other couples we met who had booked through you were also very impressed. We would not hesitate to use you again if we were looking for an appropriate holiday, and we would recommend you to others.

With many thanks from us both"
