This trip was a transformative experience. It has taken us awhile to re-adjust to "normal" life again. The whole journey was pure pleasure. Warren was an extraordinary guide – his knowledge and passion were infectious and his personality was absolutely lovely. It was like traveling with a family friend who opened the doors to a completely new world for us. We couldn't recommend him more highly. Joni had the best time, which is not easy for a 15 year old teenager – Warren managed to engage him on all fronts, and even got him to leave his bed every morning at 5.00 (willingly most of the time). Not an easy task, I can tell you. - Katharina, with Nathan and Joni (New York)


On our trip, South Africa Sept 29, we actually had 2 guides. Warren Pearson and Marco Tonoli. I cannot say enough about how wonderful they were. Their knowledge of history, flora and fauna is encyclopedic. Each was so charming, so courteous, so natural, so brilliant that they made a wonderful trip even more wonderful. They put everyone at ease and adapted to the dynamics of our group. Marco has a lovely way of referring back and incorporating what he previously stated so solidify my knowledge. Warren is even more charming with encyclopedic knowledge. They both complemented each other very well and I loved their tales of the bush. These fabulous guides have no equal and have spoiled me for any other trips. And they even gave us a tutorial on how to use the camera feature on our cell phones!! The extent of their knowledge and sensitivity to the needs of the group is amazing. - Abercrombie & Kent, South Africa Connections Group (USA)


Warren – really the most very special thanks for giving us so many memories for the family to treasure.  It was the experience of a lifetime, just fabulous fun spending time with you and you made the trip everything that we could have ever hoped for.  It was a real honour and absolute delight to be able to share in your passion, enthusiasm and knowledge - thank you so much -  it would have been half the trip without you. - Alistair, Emilia, Kirstin & Cameron (Hong Kong)


Warren - to see your joy at Cape Town Airport when Zander, Dawn and the girls arrived was fabulous!! I instantly realised how much this relationship meant to all of you. You have given all the Sprague's a wonderful week with thoughtful considerations for all three generations! You made each day for us so special and I was very touched that you shared your family with us, especially George's birthday. Your enthusiasm for the wild is contagious and all of us are enriched with your knowledge of tree, birds, plants and animals and South Africa in general. I look forward to returning next year. All my best. - George & Lee (Boston)
