Joan Schmiidt

Master Tracker

Our first visit was in 2011, we returned in 2014, then again in 2017, and again in 2018. It is favorite place to be. We plan on coming 2020 for my 70th birthday (3/2/50) and our 50th wedding anniversary (9/5/70)
We recently visited with our daughter's family, including 8 yr old granddaughter. She is still talking about all the wonderful things that she saw on Safari. We were worried that it might be a little gory for her, but she reacted with vigor to the most gruesome of events. We plan a return visit in 2020 - that will be our 5th trip to visit this incredible place where the guides, trackers, and all the staff make this such a memorable experience for all that visit.
