What our Guests Say About Celeste

The trip was fantastic! Oh how I loved it. The animals, the kill, the people, the stars. I had never been on a tour. I always travel alone. Everyone was wonderful. The truck was full of laughter and knowledge….I can go on and on. Thanks so much!

We are filled inside with a million pictures and memories of multiple wildlife experiences. Johannes and I enjoyed our Africa trip very much, in part also because Alfredo is such an excellent leader; calm and composed with a wonderful sense of humor, treating group members with 'special needs' the same as people who travel 'lightly'.

These past two weeks in Africa were absolutely some of the most thrilling of Jim’s and my lives. The trip was beyond expectation in so many ways. We are most grateful for having had the opportunity to travel once again with Amazonia Expeditions on such an awesome adventure. Alfredo always does a superior job in managing the day-to-day operations.
