“The trip was absolutely wonderful! I couldn't imagine how Open Sky could possibly top last year's Morocco trip, but in many ways you managed to do it. The sights and experiences were so numerous and diverse, and all were a photographer's delight.”

 – Wendy M.

“Amazing, can't use that word enough…. I don't think I have been on one that came close to this one.”  

– Jane T.

“It was WAY more than I expected...and I'm a well-traveled individual.  ps. for those of us who have to work-out...could run almost every day.  Not unimportant.... I know people who won't go on trips like this if they think they can't "get out.”  Thanks!!”

– Wendy K.

"You guys are simply the BEST. Thank you for an amazing, one-of- a-kind, never-to-be-forgotten, awesome, experience."

– Sally S.

“Where and when is the next one?”  

– Lynn R.

“Keep up the good work! Thanks for providing me with yet another once-in-lifetime wonderful travel adventure. Namibia is simply one of the most amazing places on earth, mind-blowing scenery, the most outstanding night skies in the world, and people with a welcoming warmth. Animals and birds were breath taking is variety and abundance. But what made the trip stellar was Temu and Open Sky.”

 – Hal M.
