Anthony Cheffings

To say it in one word this trip was just ‘fabulous’, full of highlights in every sense; accommodation, food, animals, many elephants and lions and most of all lots of good company. Thanks for having shared the bush, explaining wildlife in a way that we will certainly be coming back to Kenya and learning about wildlife behaviour. From the zebras crossing the river, the fishing, the lions catching the two zebras, the 20 lions nearing our tent, rafting, horseback riding – our trip was complete!

Hein and Conny Deiters, Avignon, France

While we are home in body, we have not quite made the spiritual transfer back to the states, our hearts are still in Africa, and you made it such a wonderful experience for us! Thank you for all your efforts! I came back to a desk stacked with problems and bills, and quite frankly don’t want to touch any of it…I want to go on a game drive!

Rob Arnot, Breckenridge, TX

There was so much that made this trip special and I want you to know just how much I appreciated not only the enormity of effort and organization that was required by you to create such an experience, such an adventure. The details, the minutiae must be staggering even with all the experience you have, just to get us, your guests, to a campsite! All of us were incredibly impressed with your professionalism, for in this regard we know you went all out to take care of us, creating the framework for our adventure. The campsites were wonderful, your staff a fine group of men, the food, the Tusker beer, our comfort in every way possible was obviously primary to you – and it showed. But what was most compelling for me and what is most telling in what makes for a great host in creating the experience we had is the sharing. Yes we did come to see animals, and you did everything in your power to make that happened – and you succeeded! But the sharing of your knowledge, your years of experience and the love of your Kenya made me feel so much more a part of things, wetting my appetite for more -this is what impressed me most and made our wonderful trip complete. I thank you for that. My only complaint is in regards to the food. I ate too much of it and the photos of me aren’t great because I look like a pie eater!

Jesse Nichols, Denver

Anthony, we all made it home safe and sound and all we can talk or think about is our wonderful trip to Africa. You were the perfect guide and went above and beyond the call of duty to make it the most memorable trip ever. I am having a hard time getting back in the swing of things over here…I keep wishing I was on a game drive or having a sundowner watching the sunset!!

Michelle Arnot, Breckenridge, TX

My final malaria tablet was taken last night so I think the safari is officially over. Darn it! I can’t describe how wonderful I thought the whole safari experience was…from the great camps to the exciting game drives to the much missed sundowners and campfires. Thank you for sharing your love of the countryside and animals with all of us! I hope to be able to bring our whole family to visit one of these days! Stories and photographs do not tell the tale; to fully appreciate Kenya, one needs to experience Kenya.

Amy Ehrlich, Austin

It is a time that I will always treasure and you made it all possible. You are truly gifted at your job and made the two weeks extra special. I went on the trip with high expectations and you exceeded them. I only hope in the future we will be able to have you take our entire family!!! I would love for them to have a similar experience. You were so incredibly knowledgeable and were patient with the ten thousand questions. I loved seeing your home and beautiful family. Fiona was so gracious and kind. Your children are wonderful.

Lew Little, Austin

It truly was the trip of a lifetime, and that was in great part due to you, your impeccable planning and your incredible knowledge of your country and all it has to offer that you shared with us. We simply can’t thank you enough.

Mary Hayes, Dallas

We could not have had a more incredible experience. Our safari truly exceeded all of our expectations and we are all upset that we are not still there. I almost find it hard to explain to people how amazing everything was from the places, the people, the wonderful food, and the astonishing variety of animals seen.

Philip Price, Houston

As former residents of Kenya, my husband and I have returned to Kenya many times to go on safari… and without fail regardless of the urban distractions or current concerns, once we head for the bush and the Game Reserves the magic takes hold. Our last safari was with Anthony and his incredible staff. For the first time, we were taking friends with us, a group of 10, for their first safari. We were especially concerned that their first and possibly only safari would be a memorable and enjoyable experience. From my very first contact with Anthony in the planning stages I was struck by his care and attention to our wishes and quickly became confident that he would provide the experience of a lifetime for us and our friends ……. and it turned out to indeed be our best adventure yet. Anthony’s extensive knowledge of the land and the wildlife, careful planning and an experienced, wonderful staff made the days and nights spent in our own private camps and on game viewing drives totally enjoyable. After hot showers provided by the camp staff following a day of dust and excitement, each evening we enjoyed drinks around the campfire before dinner, sharing stories and sightings and marvelling at the breathtaking vistas and quiet, intimate, chance encounters with the animals that we had each day. We couldn’t have asked for more!! We had experienced safari many times before but this one was exceptional because of the way Anthony took care everything. Of course, the wine, manhattans, gin and tonics, plum jam, jokes and napkin tricks at dinner and cheetah on the hood of our vehicle contributed a bit too!

Kay Kaiser, St Louis

That was an incredible trip. It was certainly everything I had hoped for, and more. The lodges were superb, the wildlife was unbelievable, and the guide was the icing on the cake!

Jenny Mercer, Toronto

I want to thank you very much, on behalf of all my family, for the quality of the trip you organised for us, the efficiency and the professionalism of your organisation, and the quality of the contacts you had with all of us. We have done something which appears as “unique” for all of us .Thank you for that again.

Eric Brousse, Avignon, France

It is impossible to describe the trip to our friends in a way that captures the real essence of the experience. This will not be our last trip to Africa.

Gary Balke, St Louis

Words are completely inadequate to describe our appreciation for our safari, it was perfect in every degree. We left Buffalo as four couples, with close ties who had walked through life together. We returned closer friends with greater understanding of each other because of this unique experience. My Holly has brought two groups to you and they have been the most exciting events of our 44 years of marriage. We have loved both because of the rare beauty of it all. We have truly been in the ‘Garden of Eden’ and have been guided by you who has shared this love of frontier living in such a professional way. In short you make a two week visit so personal so complete, and so rewarding that its uniqueness stands out by itself. You have the ability and skill to customize the trip at a moment’s notice to the desires of your constituency and to set yourself clearly apart from other safari groups. Your program is total quality and so the memory is lasting and complete.

Ed Walsh, Buffalo, NY

Seems every day I’m dreaming about or telling someone about our safari.
