Africa and Elevate Destinations is a Good Match

Written on: December 06, 2014   |   I visited in June 2014 My daughter graduated from college this year and I thought we should do something grand before she started her first job and would be limited with her vacation time. I started researching companies that build in volunteer activities into family vacations and found Elevate. Dominique Callimanopulos worked patiently with me as I had a lot of questions and did feel nervous about going on my own, not with a tour group. I am so glad I went this way as we got to do everything we wanted to at the pace we wanted to do it in. Dominique had some great suggestions and together we put together what I think is the perfect trip to Africa (S. Africa, Botswana and Victoria Falls/Zambia side). Every step of the way we were met and I never had to lift my luggage the entire trip - now that's a vacation!
I can't recommend Dominique and Elevate Destinations enough. Her passion and compassion is what stands out the most about her. If you tell her you want to book my exact trip, I promise you a trip of a life time.

We are quite adventurous and like to figure out things by ourselves, so we never arrange our trips through travel agents. However, given the complexity of traveling in this part of the world, we were totally in the da... read more

I learned about Elevate Destinations while poking around the internet for service trips that would be appropriate for my two children, ages 12 and 8, and myself. I was skeptical about the possibility of finding something that could meet our desires to connect with and volunteer in a community in another part of the world, encounter wildlife, especially threatened ... read more

I had never been to Africa before last summer. My family and I decided to go last minute and enlisted the help of Elevate Destinations. I was nervous about going and worried we would get subpar accommodations due to our late booking. How wrong I was. To put it simply, it was the trip of a lifetime. From landing in Tanzania, traveling through four parks and endless ... read more
