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.”
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
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.
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!!!
We have just arrived back after the most incredible road trip around South Africa. Jo organised everything perfectly for us, we didn’t want to come home. We would even go to say it was our best ever holiday and we have been to some lovely destinations. The whole holiday was just perfect in every way.
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 had a self-drive holiday to KwaZuluNatal which was a wonderful experience from start to finish. We can thoroughly recommend this part of South Africa. The people encountered were delightful and we are already thinking about a return visit.
The selection of accommodation was exactly what we would have chosen from colonial Elephant house to coastal Lavender Manor. The fab boutique hotel in Cape Town was a great location for New Year celebrations and the trip to Franschoek and the winelands fabulous, not just the wine hic hic but the journey there and the spectacular scenery on the drive over.
Thank you for a great experience and abundance of memories.
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.
FANTASTIC! It was the most incredible experience. We loved the variety that you had planned for us, from the rainforest in Andasibe to Isalo which was stunning (the hotel was really special). Ifaty was also a really interesting place but the piece de resistance was definitely Anjajavy. We thought we had died and gone to heaven! The honeymoon package was wonderful but the best part was Cedric and his passion for the environment. Another aspect which we were thrilled by was the quality of the guides. A special thanks for the guide in Isalo and Ifaty – I think he was called Sedeer. He was so knowledgeable and good company.
We had 12 nights in Sri Lanka which we organised through Sundowner – it was excellent! Sundowner added real value with their recommendations on the travel and in particular their recommended accommodation. We were nervous about having our own local driver but in fact he was very good and it suited us as independent travellers who like to set our own agenda.
