Client Review

“Words can’t really describe how wonderful our trip to Africa was with Ker and Downey. Not only did we have the most memorable experience with excellent game viewings and excursions, but our lodgings were second to none, and all needs were taken care of so thoroughly. I’ve traveled extensively around the world and without a doubt this was the best trip I’ve taken and also the smoothest. I credit a lot of it to Emma Perrin, our travel agent with Ker and Downey. She kept us so informed before, during, and after the trip and made sure things went seamlessly and organized. I can’t thank her enough for opening our eyes to the natural beauty and wonderful people of Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe, and Zambia. There’s no doubt that I will use Ker and Downey again for future African adventures and would recommend them to everyone I know thinking about venturing to Africa- and I already have. Thank you SO much!”
