{"reviewer_id":"C5DC80B696065B28B47DDB056F7ED1B2","reviewer_name":"Maps303210","review_text":"Erica was terrific!!! She patiently worked with us to create an amazing trip to Zimbabwe (Victoria Falls) and Botswana. She was meticulous in her planning and all of her hard work created an incredible two week-safari for us. It couldn't have gone any better. I think using a local agent with extensive, first-hand knowledge of Botswana made a big difference. She was incredibly informative, but never pushy. It was a joy working with her and we ended up with the trip of a lifetime.","review_rating":5.0,"sentiment_class":"positive","sentiment_result":0.8989684885714285,"sentiment_breakdown":[["Erica was terrific!",["positive",0.93981475]],["She patiently worked with us to create an amazing trip to Zimbabwe (Victoria Falls) and Botswana.",["positive",0.9450859]],["She was meticulous in her planning and all of her hard work created an incredible two week-safari for us.",["positive",0.9554232]],["It couldn't have gone any better.",["unknown",0.7434628]],["I think using a local agent with extensive, first-hand knowledge of Botswana made a big difference.",["positive",0.9693616]],["She was incredibly informative, but never pushy.",["unknown",0.78000593]],["It was a joy working with her and we ended up with the trip of a lifetime.",["positive",0.95962524]]],"reviewer_fake_points":30}


{"reviewer_id":"5A95FFD22E4AAB96D782BBC68768CEE9","reviewer_name":"spiny1","review_text":"My wife and I recently traveled to Botswana for our first safari experience. We prefer to use local agents when planning travel, and we chose Safari Specialists to help with our trip. Joanne, our agent, did a great job. After giving her our budget guidelines, she presented us with several recommended options. We eventually chose 10 nights total, with time split between Ngoma Lodge, Selinda Explorers Camp, and Little Vumbura. They were all different, which is what we wanted, varying between Chobe National Park and River, wild Selinda in the Linyati plains, and delta water features at Little Vumbura. All were terrific.\nJoanne was very knowledgeable, responsive, and a very good communicator. The entire trip went very smoothly. I highly recommend Safari Specialists.","review_rating":5.0,"sentiment_class":"positive","sentiment_result":0.938751044,"sentiment_breakdown":[["My wife and I recently traveled to Botswana for our first safari experience.",["positive",0.9023831]],["We prefer to use local agents when planning travel, and we chose Safari Specialists to help with our trip.",["positive",0.9510456]],["Joanne, our agent, did a great job.",["positive",0.9734501]],["After giving her our budget guidelines, she presented us with several recommended options.",["positive",0.94923294]],["We eventually chose 10 nights total, with time split between Ngoma Lodge, Selinda Explorers Camp, and Little Vumbura.",["positive",0.9555149]],["They were all different, which is what we wanted, varying between Chobe National Park and River, wild Selinda in the Linyati plains, and delta water features at Little Vumbura.",["positive",0.8789075]],["All were terrific.",["positive",0.9674146]],["Joanne was very knowledgeable, responsive, and a very good communicator.",["positive",0.9636509]],["The entire trip went very smoothly.",["positive",0.8743039]],["I highly recommend Safari Specialists.",["positive",0.9716069]]],"reviewer_fake_points":25}


{"reviewer_id":"C596C651847DA726A6ADA334E3EAD0A7","reviewer_name":"Chris G","review_text":"This was my 6th trip to Africa, but my 1st time using Safari Specialists. SS planned a wonderful trip to Vic Falls and the Okavango Delta. Kagiso \u0026 Bronwyn expertly arranged a trip which included a blend of their suggestions with arrangements I had already made. My trip included multiple border crossings, flights and land transfers. In other words, plenty of opportunity for things to go wrong. I have spent many hours at Kazangula border in the past, so I know what could have been. Yet, all arrangements went off without a hitch.\n\nEverything went as well as could be imagined. Until it didn't. When I decided to extend my stay, they handled 2 major, last minute changes to my itinerary without incident. It's very hard for guests to change plans while in the Delta. But I placed a call to them and they made changes to flights, lodging and payment. I was able to relax and enjoy my holiday. It's one thing to plan an itinerary. But it takes an expert to gracefully and professionally handle last-minute changes. I am so impressed with how they just made things work for me.\n\nI was referred to Safari Specialists by a friend. I was a bit wary using someone new. But they exceeded my expectations. I will not hesitate to recommend them to others.","review_rating":5.0,"sentiment_class":"positive","sentiment_result":0.8841346855000001,"sentiment_breakdown":[["This was my 6th trip to Africa, but my 1st time using Safari Specialists.",["positive",0.9278299]],["SS planned a wonderful trip to Vic Falls and the Okavango Delta.",["positive",0.9058876]],["Kagiso \u0026 Bronwyn expertly arranged a trip which included a blend of their suggestions with arrangements I had already made.",["positive",0.9428052]],["My trip included multiple border crossings, flights and land transfers.",["positive",0.90916723]],["In other words, plenty of opportunity for things to go wrong.",["positive",0.9672337]],["I have spent many hours at Kazangula border in the past, so I know what could have been.",["positive",0.8112759]],["Yet, all arrangements went off without a hitch.",["unknown",0.61329657]],["Everything went as well as could be imagined.",["positive",0.90166324]],["Until it didn't.",["unknown",0.39136916]],["When I decided to extend my stay, they handled 2 major, last minute changes to my itinerary without incident.",["positive",0.9418781]],["It's very hard for guests to change plans while in the Delta.",["positive",0.9595443]],["But I placed a call to them and they made changes to flights, lodging and payment.",["positive",0.86354756]],["I was able to relax and enjoy my holiday.",["positive",0.9500288]],["It's one thing to plan an itinerary.",["positive",0.8010939]],["But it takes an expert to gracefully and professionally handle last-minute changes.",["positive",0.94592154]],["I am so impressed with how they just made things work for me.",["positive",0.99242413]],["I was referred to Safari Specialists by a friend.",["positive",0.94862634]],["I was a bit wary using someone new.",["positive",0.9685019]],["But they exceeded my expectations.",["positive",0.9574633]],["I will not hesitate to recommend them to others.",["positive",0.98313534]]],"reviewer_fake_points":-65}

Nadine, one of their agents, very patiently worked with us to perfect an itinerary that met all of expectations within our budget. We visited two Kwando owned camps in Botswana (Tae Pan and Splash, highly recommended), Hwange Bush Camp in Zimbabwe (awesome walking safaris), and ended in Elephant Camp in Victoria Falls (beautiful lodge, most helpful staff, and awesome activities). Safari Specialists made all the arrangements for travel between camps and there was never a problem. Someone was always with us, even during border crossing where a representative was there from both countries to walk us through the process. I can not recommend them enough.","review_rating":5.0,"sentiment_class":"unknown","sentiment_result":0.6638469366666667,"sentiment_breakdown":[["We used Safari Specialists to book our first African safari.",["positive",0.8844257]],["Nadine, one of their agents, very patiently worked with us to perfect an itinerary that met all of expectations within our budget.",["positive",0.96615076]],["We visited two Kwando owned camps in Botswana (Tae Pan and Splash, highly recommended), Hwange Bush Camp in Zimbabwe (awesome walking safaris), and ended in Elephant Camp in Victoria Falls (beautiful lodge, most helpful staff, and awesome activities).",["positive",0.97262096]],["Someone was always with us, even during border crossing where a representative was there from both countries to walk us through the process.",["unknown",0.5551597]],["I can not recommend them enough.",["unknown",0.6047245]]],"reviewer_fake_points":-85}
