Sundowner was set-up by Jo Shuttleworth and James O’Farrell.
“Having been lucky enough to travel far and wide to over 60 different countries for fun and ‘work’, we spent some time thinking about what made our holidays memorable. Often, we would remember specific moments of our holidays where we felt immersed in our surroundings or overawed by a new experience, sight or sound. It was these moments that made our holidays special. But not just these alone. It was also the people that we met. We therefore decided to launch Sundowner to create holidays that focus on creating moments as well as meeting wonderful people.”
The trip itself was very well organised and ran incredibly smoothly, something which is not always achievable in East Africa! The partners they work with in Tanzania are of top quality: the guides, accommodation, connections, transport and itinerary were really well thought through and of good quality.
The boutique Guest Houses Sundowners chose were exceptional – fabulous settings, quality and service. The whole trip was excellently planned and organised, no hitches at all.
Her suggestions were amazing, our expectations were pretty high to begin with, but were massively exceeded in each place without exception. Each transfer went off without a hitch, and she’d primed each hotel that it was an anniversary celebration and we were greeted with champagne at every one of them, one of them even made us a cake!
The camps we stayed in were extremely well run and comfortable, and the guides were excellent. They made sure we also got to see many of the rest of the wildlife of the region – everything from amazing numbers of Impala, Giraffe, Elephant, Zebra, lions, Cheetah and Leopard, and even Wild Dog that we had hoped to see but doubted we would be so lucky!
We can honestly say it was the best holiday we have ever had. The small boutique guest houses were all amazing and certainly gave us a real flavour of the country. We drove to Cape Town where our lovely hotel was a perfect base to explore this beautiful place and beaches along with all the sights.
Jo arranged our once in a lifetime trip to South Africa and we could not have had a better time. It has been the best holiday we have ever had and will certainly be using Sundowner again for any other long haul trips. Don’t hesitate to give them a call – you wont regret it
My friend and I have returned from a wonderful trip to Vietnam and Cambodia organised by Liam. The team on the ground, in both countries, were excellent- tour guides, drivers, hotel staff. All in all, a wonderful experience which we would both highly recommended.
From the minute we checked in at the Emirates desk to the minute we landed back in the UK, everything was perfect. Our accommodation was WOW, our transfer drivers and trips were WOW. I don’t want to share where we stayed because they were so special and if we want to go back, I don’t want to find them unavailable!!!
I have just returned from a holiday in Madagascar. We both had an amazing and enjoyable time. We were very impressed with our driver/guide. He was helpful, full of interesting information, answered all our questions (and there were a lot!) with good humour and excellent English. Always flexible and willing to cope with special requests (especially for my photo stops) and even taught us some Malagasy. At Andasibe National Park we had a top class wildlife guide who was very knowledgeable and his ability to spot wildlife in the forest was uncanny. He even managed to spot a Leaf-Tailed Gecko (a master of camouflage in the wild) which was amazing.
Our tour of Kerala was perfect in every way, we decided to go with a private driver who stayed with us for the whole trip – we found this a more relaxed way to travel. We were so impressed with Periplus, efficient in every way, our driver, Sunil, was very polite, always on time and in many ways added to our holiday.
