Cleo, we arrived home safe and sound. Vicky and I would like to thank you again for the best holiday either of us have ever had - it was truly magical and we will treasure the memories for ever. The extra touches you arranged made it all the more special for us. Thank you also for the lovely glasses that will remind us of our honeymoon every time we use them. We hope to see you when you come to the UK, please pass our regards and thanks on to Henry. I am sure we will be in touch in the future for more exciting holidays in Africa but in the meantime I hope you continue to prosper. Kind regards Stuart and Vicky on there Aug / Sept 08 Honeymoon trip.

Sorry I didn't email you yesterday - I did arrive home safely but forgot to let you know in the excitement of discovering that it is currently warm and dry in England! Thank you again for all your help and hospitality during my stay - it was lovely to be made to feel so welcome.

I look forward to seeing you in London soon Claire on her April / May 08 trip

.....for a wonderful trip. Sorry I've not had chance to write before now. Back late last Sunday then flat out at work ever since. But I've just about finished now - just half a day on Monday then its Christmas! Everyone really enjoyed their trip to Kenya; the orphanage was quite emothional; the safaris were brilliant and Henry a great driver. Thanks for sorting everything out for us - yet again! Have a wonderful Christmas and I'll see you hopefully next year.

Take care. Val party x 6 on there Dec 07 trip
Hi Cleo,

how are you doing? Things are going well here, still enjoying the blissful honeymoon period. Thank you so much for arranging our accommodation in Kenya, our friends were very impressed and can't stop complimenting the set up at Karina's. Do kindly extend my regards to Jenny and her team

Jambo Cleopatra We got back safely and are still overwhelmed with our memories. It was really magnificent - with the possible exceptions of the suspension in the car and the Nairobi hotel. We saw most of what we expected to see, and Anderson promised to show us the rest next time we came; unfortunately, what we saw gave us an idea of everything that remained to be seen... Gabi has written up the story of the trip, I have added in some of the photographs, this is attached. There are some 2000 more pictures out there, Tim has published some of them at http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=3217&l=48fcc&id=500925059 and http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=3220&l=51abf&id=500925059. Asante sana for your help and organization, sorry we did not get to meet you at the airport before we left.

Hi Cleo thanks for your mail. We did indeed get home safely, but were sad to leave your beautiful country. We really had a wonderful time and can only hope that we will make it back one day. Yes, I did enjoy the spa in Mombasa, got a wonderfully relaxing Swedish massage. We mostly relaxed in Mombasa, only left the hotel once to go to Haller Park, to see the giant turtles and feed the giraffes. If you speak to Anderson, please give him our love - we did enjoy his company, he was excellent. I have seen Ken yesterday and told him how much we enjoyed our trip. Do let us know if you ever come to Milton Keynes, we would love to see you.

Thank you again! Gabi Leeson on there July 07 holiday

Dear Cleo, After months of emailing it was so nice to meet you finally Cleo! The wedding of Douwe and Wangari was not only beautiful, but also perfectly organized. After a good, but long journey I am home again. Despite the rain I had a fantastic time in Mombasa, so did the others. Thanks again and hope to see you in the future. Love, Joan during Douwe and Wangari's wedding in Mombasa June 07

Hi Cleo Greetings from Wigan, I just had to write and thank you so very much for our wonderful holiday. Usually after a week I am ready to go home and once home just think about the next holiday - not this time. I am still there in Kenya in my head, not very good when you are busy at work!! I missed you after you left us - I cried, I missed Henry after he left us - I cried, I knew I would miss Kenya when we were on the plane - I cried and I never cry. There are so many things that I loved about our holiday, it wasn't just the lodges, or the animals, or the people, it was everything. I think Kenya is in my blood now. Val came round on Monday, we hadn't even unpacked, she is up for a girlie few days somewhere if the boys are going to climb a mountain - I will look forward to that. When you have time please let me know about the wedding, I have told Vicki that she is getting married in Kenya - no choice - only problem is there is no husband and she doesn't seem to want one!! She is more career minded so I will have to wait. I hope that we can keep in touch and meet up when you are in England and you know you would always be very welcome to come and visit us here. (Ron extended the same invite to Henry.)

Hope everything is good with you and that you are well and that you are happy Thank you again my friend Love Lynda on there 10th wedding anniversary holiday May 07
Dearest Cleo: Thanks for everything. We are having a great time. Anderson is fantastic and the car is wonderful for the safaris. Thank you so much. We all LOVED the Kilaguni Lodge the best so far but Amboseli was the better park to watch the game. We would have loved to stay at Kilaguni one more night. Next time!
We had a GREAT trip. On our last day (since it was basically an empty day), I actually called up your cousin, Emily, and asked if the kids could use the pool. For a very small fee, they had a great time swimming and we had a great time on the computer. I really liked your cousin--a VERY sweet girl.
I thank you for the great job you did planning our Kenya trip. It was fantastic. Next time, I would love to have stayed at Amboselli, Tsavo West, and Sweetwaters an extra day--but this time, we only had 5 or 6 days.

Hi Cleopatra! We've had a wonderful time here, seeing cheetahs and leopards today which is what they wanted to see -- well worth the 2 days extensions for the kids sake And oh, thanks so very much for all you did -- it was truly an experience of a lifetime. From PARTICE MOORE on her jan trip
Thank you so much for the e-mail also for all your help whilst we were in Kenya. The students and staff really enjoyed all of the excursions in particular the safari lodge that we stayed in was absolutely amazing. So my dear friend once again many many thanks and I'll see you again very soon. FROM ELLIE - BRAIN TREE COLLEGE UK on there feb trip.
Thanks for your e-mail. I am back at the office in Washington DC, all went well and I have a lot to tell to my colleagues... I am definitely passing your name around, as I really appreciated the attention and care you give to your customers.

We had a wonderful safari, saw a lot of animals, and were surprised to see so many, from so close. Timothy is great, we enjoyed his company and professionalism a lot. On Saturday, I went to the Sheldrick Orphanage, and I met Timothy there, who was on duty again... It was like if I knew everybody in town, seeing familiar faces wherever I went (I had the same taxi driver as the week before, when I had gone to the Giraffe center)! Then I went to the Kazuri bead factory, which I enjoyed as well. Then I had lunch by the pool at the Fairview, and soon, it was time to go the airport... FROM MARIE - CHRISTINE of World bank DC
Dear Cleo,

Back in the heat of Dubai we still wanted to thank you for the lovely trip we had and the time we enjoyed in Kenya. It was all perfectly arranged and we all had great fun. And it was nice to return to Kenya, this time with 3 kids......

Many thanks again and see you maybe another time in Dubai or Kenya. Asante sana

Warm regards,

Peter, Nicole, Nelleke, Boris & Viggo from UNILIVER MIDDLE EAST
Dear Cleo

What a pleasure to receive your email and to hear good news from you.

We got back in Washington a week ago. Everything went well and we still enjoy some sunny days which makes the return smoother. And of course, we have our pictures to remember us how good was our trip!

By the way, I will give your contact to my sister who is interested in having more info on Kenya. She is looking for her wedding trip!!!

I wish you a super lovely week end and stay in good health.

Hope to hear from you soon and if you travel to the US, you know where we are!


Marie and Gilles Veuiliot from WORLD BANK WASHINGTON DC
Irina and I are fine. We moved into our new flat six weeks ago and really enjoy it. More and more beautiful pictures from our fantastic trip to Kenya hang on our walls. It was so fantastic, we have enjoyed it soooo much and will definitely come back!

Thanks Cleopatra for a wonderful safari yet again!

Just a quick note to let you know we arrived home safely. We had a fantastic trip. Tomothy was superb as always. We'll be in touch next time we come over to Kenya. There are quite a few visits planned by New Hope supporters so if its Ok with you I'll pass on your details so that you can organise their Safaris.

Once again many thanks - VAL HOLDEN
Hi Cleopatra,

Thanks for your email, and a very Happy New Year to you as well.

Thank you so much for your help last year organising trips for my friends Ellie, and Val. They have both spoken very highly of you and the service you gave them and I hope I can recommend others to you during 2007. Who knows, the next time I'm in Kenya maybe we will even get the chance to meet! DANIEL JONES OF HAND IN HAND CHARITY ORGANIZATION - UK
