      It is one of those trips that everyone should do!”

      “I loved the wildlife, the people and the adventure aspect. Since the group was small, it was easy to connect with the others and I enjoyed sharing the experiences with them. “Magical” is how I have described it to many friends when they have asked. I think back on all of the wildlife we saw and all of the activities we did and it almost seems surreal now that we are back in our everyday lives. It surpassed all of my expectations and I would not have changed anything. It is one of those trips that everyone should do!”

      Tanzania Group Tour

      This trip simply blew my mind.

      “This trip simply blew my mind. Never before have I encountered so much wildlife close-up. The highlights kept coming! Having initially felt somewhat apprehensive about camping, it turned out to be my favourite part of the trip. Being so completely immersed in nature, falling asleep to the sound of hippos close to the tent and watching the mist rise from the river in the early morning light, made us feel incredibly alive. This trip is a treat for all animal lovers that you cannot effort to miss.”


      Elephant Sands Botswana

      It was amazing! The best trip ever!

      “Travelling in a group was great, everybody was very nice and getting to know people from all over the world made the trip even better. All the guides were great. Helen was very funny and always happy. She took care of everything for us and gave us great tips. We tried a lot of the traditional foods, visited villages, met locals, went to a school, crashed a wedding and tried the mokoro. It was amazing! The best trip ever! I’m glad I chose Rock my adventure and I will sign in for another trip.”
