If you wish to see elephants, lions, and giraffes in one vacation, a safari is certainly for you. There are plenty of options to soak up the Serengeti, and I can make sure you get there.


I’ve booked many safari experiences all over Africa and South Africa. I even spent 10 days there myself! From Tanzania to Kenya, I can create customized itineraries that get you right up and personal with the wildlife.


I recommend sending small groups or families on safari excursions for logistical reasons. Enjoy life on the wild side and plan a one-of-a-kind safari.

My Travel Stories

My Very Own Safari

Two years ago, I decided to embark on an African safari for my birthday. I have to say; this 10-day vacation was one of the most amazing ways to celebrate. The things you can see and do on a safari are truly exceptional!

Getting to Tanzania and Kenya by private charter plane is something you...Read more.

Consistent client
Fran has made making travel plans stress free and pleasurable. She goes above and beyond the valid duty. From airline tickets to hotels and transportation in between?? A pleasure to work with

Trip to Cancun. Moon palace
We as a couple and me by myself have been doing business with Fran since 1980 , seriously , she planned our honeymoon and we were very happy with all aspects of our trip .
We have gone on at least 7 cruises and she has planned them all.
We have gone to Mexico , Grand Cayman and several domestic trips that she has organized and handled them all , we don't have the first complaint .
She is very professional and thinks about every detail and handles them herself so we don't have to . We wouldn't use anyone else . !!!!!!!,

Couples trip to Cabo!
There were three couples traveling in our group. We have all booked our own vacations several times in the past. We have not had issues with this but there is just something that gives us all peace of mind knowing Fran had booked this trip for us. We knew she was familiar with the resort we picked and could answer questions we had prior. She also made sure we had transportation to the resort and great flights. This is our second time working with Fran. She planned a trip for 8 friends to Cancun a few years ago and we let her pick the location and we all loved it. We cannot wait to book our next trip with Fran!

Fran knows my family and our Expectatations
Fran has become like a friend to me as I share my family's stories with her. She knows what it takes to make the best travel arrangements for me and my family and she has a great understanding of our expectations of the travel carriers we use. I have come to trust her and know that her advice is soundly reliable.
