Dreams of Africa

Written on: July 12, 2013   |   I visited in May 2002 About a year before we actually took our trip, I began searching for help. In an international travel magazine something led me to the Africa 2000 ad. I began e-mailing Gill and it soon became clear that we could easily communicate. She took my ideas, I took hers and she helped us enjoy an African trip of a lifetime. We had never been on a guided trip before, always were a do it ourselves couple. We quickly discovered what a fun, intelligent Graham was and enjoyed every minute he was with us. It certainly makes sense to have an African company help you plan your African trip. Africa 2000 gives you so many options when planning. You could never imagine how many they offer and for the various areas they cover. Just start an e-mail conversation with Gill and you have the beginning of a vacation you will always dream about. Sandy & Dean Soash, Waverly, Iowa

This trip was a such a memory maker and we cannot thank Africa 2000 Tours enough. From the moment we received our first response from Gill, we knew that we were in good hands. Every detail was covered. We did a 4 day hike up Mt Meru, then a 7 day safari in Tarangire, Ngorongoro, and Serengeti. The tent lodges were perfect for what we wanted. We loved going to ... read more

I highly recommend Africa 2000 Tours who we used to organise and book an 18 day trip in Botswana with an add on to Victoria Falls in June 2014.

We had a fantastic trip. The organisation was excellent and all done on-line. Dealing with Gill was a real delight. She made excellent suggestions about how to tailor our itinerary to maximise our time in Botswana. Gil... read more

Botswana is a MUST!
Every part of our trip was grand and I heartily recommend Africa Tours 2000,
Husband & wife team, Gill and Graham Maskell. Gill (pronounced Jill) and I set up the itinerary and her husband Graham was our guide throughout our two weeks. Gill was super to work with and Graham a wonderful guide and they both are now friends of ours! They are So... read more

I do not have a photo--just assume I am a really cute blonde!!

Anyway, we have traveled to about 60 countries. We are always being asked which is the most memorable. This trip to South Africa, Botswana, and Zambia ALWAYS rises to the top. We planed for over a year (via knowledge gained from International Travel News). There were 6 of us to please. Gill and ... read more

Seven member adult family plus guide. 3 Kwando lodges plus a trip to Victoria Falls. 2.5 staff members per guest. Long days, early nights. Animals galore, great drivers and trackers. Breakfast at 6 am. Bedtime at 10 pm. Lots of nightly noises, all part of the charm, especially the hot water bottles.
After 8 nights, off to Islands of Siankaba located on the outsk... read more

I have used Gill and AFRICA 2000 for two separate trips to Africa. Once to Namibia, and most recently to Cape Town, the wine lands, and Malawi. I have been to Africa 9 times over the past 30 years and can say without hesitation that Gill and AFRICA 2000 are top notch. Our trips tend to be independent traveler voyages requiring extensive customization. Gill is extre... read more

I first contacted Gill Maskell for a trip in 2011 for myself. Gill arranged more than a month for me in South Africa, Botswana and Zambia, and it was an amazing trip. From our first emails I became impressed with her professionalism, integrity and wit. We spent many weeks refining my itinerary and costs and by the end I had an itinerary that was beyond my dreams... read more

Graham & Gill provided us with a wonderful trip to Africa that has set the bar so very high for any other trip we take in the future. Their knowledge and expertise was nothing short of amazing while keeping it fun and interesting. Our itinerary seemed perfect, giving us the most exciting and satisfying tour we could have ever wanted or dreamed, and as they became... read more

In 2012 I contacted three safari operators, all of whom had good reviews on-line. I submitted my desired trip. While all three answered, Gill Maskell of Africa 2000 Tours had the most responsive reply. I chose to work with her. This was the best travel decision I have ever made. She constructed just the trip my wife and I wanted, genuinely took into considerat... read more

Gill from Africa 2000 put together a great trip for my husband and I from Cape Town to Botswana and Zambia. We did not lift a finger it seemed like. We were escorted door to door of each camp and the choices of camps she gave us were awesome. I highly recommend her services to give you a memorable trip in Africa. read more
