Dear Jackie and everyone- I’m just writing to say a massive thank you for suggesting and organising this wonderful week in Ras Al Khaimah- quite honestly it just couldn’t have been better – the hotel the hotel staff the food the facilities the trips out and the weather- perfect so thank you again – back home tomorrow so back to reality!
Best wishes KP

New York

We had an amazing time, thanks! It was really helpful that you’d grouped stuff together and then we were able to put some itineraries together. I’d say we saw 90% of the things we wanted to and had already allowed enough stuff to do a trip another time.
The buildings were great- Empire State, Grand Central Station, Chrysler Building foyer, Top of the Rock, Radio City tour..we also went to see School of Rock on Broadway..did Times Sq, Ellens Stardust Diner, SoHo, Little Italy, Greenwich Village (loved that!!!), Brooklyn Bridge, Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Ground Zero, The Highline, Chelsea market, 5mins (literally) in Central Park, Comedy night, Yankees game, Moma shop, some cool diners etc etc etc 🙂
Just writing all of that has brought it nicely back… It’s a really easy place to navigate and as predicted we did loads of walking and a little bit on the subway. We’re really grateful for your help / tips and sorting it all which made it a very easy trip.
The only negative really was the hotel. The room was a bit more cosy than we expected,. I hate moaning about stuff and it didn’t detract from the overall trip and I guess that what we paid was just reflective of the level of accommodation you get. The location was absolutely spot on though which was a real bonus. Close to Broadway, close to restaurants, close to the subway and close to Central Park, so that was great.
So all in all, we had an amazing time. No doubt we’ll go back but probably in a couple of years when we’ve saved up again.
I hope all the places above have suddenly given you some good memories aswell 😊
Thanks again for all your help :-),

Botswana Trip

Following a trip to Kruger a few years ago, we’d always intended to take another safari trip and when we decided to go for it this year we contacted Kerrie, who’d arranged some excellent trips for us in the past.

We met up with Kerrie and a representative from Distinctive Africa to start planning. We concluded that Botswana would be our ideal destination, decided when we wanted to go and Distinctive Africa started to come up with draft itineraries. Once we’d finalised the itinerary we went ahead and booked.

The trip was absolutely great. Having flown in via Johannesburg, our first destination was Meno a Kwena – a lovely laid back camp. The view from our tent (and tent is probably understating the accommodation) was great. The drives into to Makgakgikgadi game park were superb with excellent sightings of a number of species including Zebra, Elephant, Giraffe and many birds.

We transferred to our next destination by light aircraft – exciting in itself. We then arrived at Moremi crossing in the Okavango Delta – again with great views from our accommodation, In the delta, one of the main ways of getting around is by Mokoro, a sort of large canoe which is poled through the shallow waterways. It’s a wonderful, peaceful experience and can give amazing, close views of wildlife A further light aircraft transfer took us to Kasane where we stayed close to the Chobe river and park. Again, some amazing sightings, in particular on the river. Finally it was on to Victoria Falls (the Zimbabwe side) for a relaxing end to the trip. The Falls are incredible. We rounded the trip off with a sunset boat cruise on the Zambezi

Altogether a wonderful trip. Many thanks to Kerrie and the team at Crowthorne Village Travel, Distinctive Africa and the various camps and lodges we stayed in!

Thankyou for helping us celebrate a special birthday in Copenhagen. Excellent choice of hotel on the waterfront, good flights, and all the usual support with tickets etc.

Even a bottle of bubbly in our room.

We would not dream of using anyone else.


The flight on the Dreamliner Heathrow to Perth was really good, seats/food etc, the time passed far quicker than we thought it would,  wouldn’t go back to stop over again.
 Thank you for all your help really appreciate the personal service.
