"I am thrilled to tell you about my trip to Thailand. It was a dream come true! The organizers, (Thyra & David) took care of every detail so I didn't have to. They designed a very thoughtful program and I experienced Thailand with zero worries, concerns or mishaps. My accommodations were beautiful and I experienced something new and authentic for ME every day of my stay"

"Everything was great. An amazing experience. Beautiful, typical and comfortable accommodations. Nice group, breathtaking sceneries. Stunning and numerous animals etc. But this couldn't have been such a unique experience without all of the Masai guides (and friends now) and the perfect organization of Thyra and David who made us feel like the best group they ever had. It was a dream come true. Even better than anything I had imagined. I wish I could repeat this experience !!!"

"There are only two words I can gather to describe this trip: Perfect and magical. I have dreamed of visiting Kenya for years and Thyra and David put together the trip of a lifetime. They are so knowledgable and the best guides I could ever imagine. The group came together and we immediately clicked. This trip was one of the most memorable and will hold a special place in my heart."

"This trip was my first ever abroad and I really believe it set the bar high for future traveling. Thyra and David created a truly magical experience for us one that I will hold dearly in my heart. Everything was planned out so well and thoughtfully . The retreat had a beautiful flow and rhythm to it. I loved how the general theme behind everything was compassion. My heart is full 10 out of 10!! A journey with them would be impossible not to enjoy! Thank you Arte for Elephants for the journey of a lifetime!"

"Once again an amazing retreat with Arte for Elephants. This trip was so much more than I imagined. Seeing beautiful Kenya and all of the animals was a dream come true. I loved seeing the baby elephants at the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, and the giraffes at the giraffe center and last but not least, the Masai Mara and Amboseli.I will cherish this experience in my heart forever. Thank you Thyra and David and our amazing group. Until we meet again! Asante Sana!
