In my opinion, Crisney is one of the best in the business.....if not the best!!
Suggestions were fantastic, she listens to client needs, and plans accordingly and within budget.
I cannot express in words just how singular and extraordinary our entire trip was.
The lodges were exceptional. We loved our guides and trackers; the food was delicious in both places, and they accommodated our “vegetarian/fish” diets to a tee. Every flight, taxi, van, connection, border crossing, guide, etc. was seamless. Our next ride was always ready and waiting for us. I’m not sure how, exactly, you coordinated all those moving pieces, but I am duly impressed and appreciative. Thank you so much for this family trip of a lifetime!
Best trip of our lives!
I want to thank you for the best trip of our lives. I can't thank you enough for all your help organizing everything. I have been recommending you to all our friends!
I would go anywhere you say!!!
Thanks again for a wonderful trip. Crisney, you are a supreme travel advisor – I would go anywhere you say!!!
There is no way anyone could have a better trip to these destinations than we did. The personal touch as well as her incredible knowledge of people and places in South Africa and Zimbabwe was simply amazing. On a scale of one to ten, I would rank Crisney as an eleven. We are in awe of our incredible journey.
There are no words to express my feelings about my recent trip to Zimbabwe and South Africa. I have traveled a great deal — even 80 times to Europe. But I had never been to Africa before, and it exceeded by far any of my great expectations. Crisney of Mosaic Safaris out of Austin, Texas, put the trip together for a private group of ten people, all friends. From the time we left Dallas to our return 12 days later, everything was arranged in a superb way. The accommodations were over-the-top, so African yet so luxurious. Our local guides and rangers on our safaris were first class and so personable. The food, the sightseeing, the adventures were simply amazing.
As always, loved the experience.
Can't wait to plan the next one with you. As always, loved the experience.
Everything was taken care of & beyond my expectations!
We all decided it was our best Christmas trip ever!
Crisney has planned multiple trips for us and is working on another! Our first experience with Mosaic Safari’s was a bucket list trip to Africa. Crisney planned a very personalized itinerary for us, which included trekking the mountain gorillas in Rwanda on our anniversary!! The accommodations were beyond impressive and the places she suggested visiting were amazing. We loved it so much that we are going to have Crisney plan another African adventure for 2020. Mosaic Safaris is not just for Africa, though! We just travelled to Thailand on a family trip which included four different locations and private guides. We saw temples, tasted a variety of street food, went to a flower festival, took care of elephants, chilled on a beach and bonded as a family. We all decided it was our best “Christmas” trip ever. Crisney has also been making some touring arrangements for an Italian vacation and is working on our next family excursion to Morocco. Mosaic Safaris attention to detail and their connections around the world will ensure that you will have a worry free, fabulous holiday!
Our African safari was the trip of a lifetime
Crisney took all the stress out of the planning. We shared our expectations and what we wanted to experience on our trip. Crisney helped us put it all together and make sure our wish list was realistic, she also made sure our travel connections were planned efficiently. Our African safari was the trip of a lifetime, and we will have many wonderful memories to share for many years to come. Can't wait to plan the next one.
We cannot express our gratitude for your planning of this trip.
Africa has touched our soul like no other place in this world.
Crisney planned a trip that gave a great overview of the country and included many cultural and adventurous activities, which we love.
Crisney was very helpful in the planning process. Since we loved the idea of going to Morocco, we did not exactly know that much about the country.
An Out of Africa Experience
For an “Out of Africa” and “out of this world” experience, book your safari with Mosaic Safaris. In each of our destinations (Lake Manyara Tree Camps, Alex Walker’s Camp, Mara Plains, and Lewa Wilderness), we were presented with unique experiences and something that was different from the previous location but equally special and memorable. It is obvious that the work done planning on the front end makes the difference. The staff at each camp knew our preferences before we arrived and the service, guides and food were incredible. We don’t consider Africa a “one and done” destination, in fact, we’re looking to plan another trip and will use Mosaic Safaris.
Chile is not a country, it is a landscape, and with Mosaic Safaris we were able to enjoy the scenery.
Mosaic Safaris helped us plan an ambitious north to south trip through Chile – from the Atacama Desert to Patagonia. The trip was for four of us, and none of us had traveled to Chile before, so it was a first for all. Our days were filled with strenuous hikes, bicycle, horseback rides and mountain treks framed against the most awe-inspiring landscapes one can only imagine. Our destination guides were engaging and knowledgeable of the area, its history, culture, and people.
I would recommend Mosaic Safaris without hesitation
Crisney arranged our first trip to East Africa, and it was more than we could have imagined! We were so well taken care of along the way with great guides and lodges and all the details fell into place.
We are floating on Cloud 9…
Thanks Crisney!! We are floating on Cloud 9. The trip was magnificent!
We had an unforgettable trip and are so thankful to everyone at Mosaic Safaris.
We fell in love with Africa, it was a life-changing trip. I can’t imagine a more beautiful place to visit. Thank you for making it happen.
More wonderful than we could imagine!
This was a trip of a lifetime, more wonderful than we could imagine!
We visited 9 amazing locations in 28 days!
Crisney helped plan our honeymoon to East and South Africa and worked effortlessly to truly make it a trip of a lifetime for us, even though we did not make it easy on her! We visited 9 amazing locations in 28 days, including a hike to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro, several luxurious safari camps in Tanzania and Kenya, trekking with gorillas in Rwanda, and wining and dining across Cape Town and Franschhoek. Crisney worked tirelessly with us to plan our itinerary and was incredibly helpful every step of the way-- including when we requested late changes or couldn't make up our mind about our next steps. She never pushed decisions or recommendations on us, but alternatively, truly collaborated with us to determine the best possible trip that was unique and specialized. While we were away, we felt 100% taken care of in terms of transportation, confirmations, and activity choice. Crisney was transparent, organized, responsive, and knowledgeable, and we can't wait to plan our next trip with her. Would 100% recommend the same!
We cannot thank you enough for a perfect 20-year anniversary trip!!!
I can tell you we have traveled to a lot of places out of the country. We have stayed in some very nice places in the world. This trip will go down at the top! You have gone above and beyond our expectations, and that is saying something!
It’s clear she has tremendous passion for her work, and she is highly qualified.
Crisney was a delight to work with – knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and highly responsive. This was our first trip to Africa, and we needed a lot of information. I described what we were looking for, and Crisney came back to us with options that eventually turned into the perfect itinerary. It’s clear she has tremendous passion for her work, and she is highly qualified. She shows great attention to detail, was able to work within our budget, and was incredibly attentive throughout. She does it all with a wonderful personality and was a joy to work with.
Crisney’s bubbly personality and her first-hand knowledge of South Africa make her travel service unique.
Crisney made it exceptionally easy and fun to make the travel arrangements, and the resultant trip was exceptional in all regards. The accommodations and personnel she arranged were outstanding. One of the best trips I have ever made to South Africa over the past 30 years.
It was certainly a trip to remember.
The trip was wonderful. Thank you for filling my bucket list. I thought all accommodations were wonderful.
Mosaic Safaris put together an amazing safari experience for me.
Every detail was explained to me verbally and in travel documents. As a woman traveling alone, this was important to me. Crisney’s enthusiasm and love for Africa was apparent the first time we spoke, and we bonded instantly!!
Crisney facilitated the family experience of a lifetime.
We did it all in South Africa. We started in a township with old friends, continued on to an amazing safari, were thrilled by extreme sports on the Garden Route (skydiving, shark cage diving, the world’s tallest bungee jump) and ended in picturesque Cape Town. I tell everyone about this trip as it’s beyond anything we’ve ever experienced before. Crisney is so genuinely interested and skilled in creating a personalized experience that exceeds your expectations.
I can't thank you enough for hooking us up with Crisney… She planned the perfect trip
She was an absolute pleasure to work with over the past 7 months. She planned the perfect trip, with every detail taken care of before we left & while we were in SA. The Sabi Sabi Little Bush Camp & Elephant Camp in Vic Falls were awesome. We had the most incredible 24-year-old safari guide & he made the trip so great for the 4 adult kids. Cape Town was fun & the 3 restaurants (Baia, Pot Luck & Kloof Street House) were terrific & our guide, Mo, was so informative & packed in as much as he could in 2 days. Vic Falls was incredible & what an adventure staying at Elephant Camp. The African people were lovely, kind & it was the most humbling & eye-opening experience EVER! After all the planning & reading about everything, I was still most surprised & feel so fortunate to have had this experience with my family. We all agreed that we must go back!!
This was the best trip of my life!
Mosaic Safaris coordinated the perfect trip for myself and my friends. We had a wide range of experiences that allowed us to take in the beautiful landscapes and witness the amazing culture of South Africa.
A carefree once in a lifetime vacation
Crisney really listened to our needs and restrictions. Having all the details of our trip set made for a carefree once in a lifetime vacation.
The planning process was amazing. It was simple and easy on our part to just share a little bit of info and then Crisney took the info and planned it all perfectly
I feel that she understands what I am looking for, my priorities
This is the second trip that Crisney has planned for me. I feel that she understands what I am looking for, my priorities, and has offered several options to chose from. Overall, a very smooth process.
We always love the way that Crisney listens to all of our wants and conveys them to everyone we encounter.
Thank you for a wonderful trip.
You made it so easy for us, and we are fortunate I tripped over your website!
Friends who follow us on social media have asked about our trip!
The “Private Desert Tent Dinner” was one of the highlights of our Dubai visit, thank you for those wonderful arrangements!
It was amazing how well everything went, the choices of accommodations, experiences and operators were superb.
We have traveled a lot, but this is the first time we have used a travel agency to plan the entire trip. The complexity of this trip was quite daunting, and we were able to just sit back and enjoy the trip without all the hard work of organizing and booking everything.
Unlike a simple “agent”, Crisney is a genuine [and constant!] traveler and thus an experienced advisor.
Crisney Lane helped us on the Peru trip and had helped us in Africa [and Paris…and Normandy…and more].
We had a wonderful trip, thank you for your assistance!
Some of our highlights were: the cooking schools, blessings from the monks, the Circus in Luang Prabang, the dinner/dance performance in Chiang Mai (WOW!!), and the best of the best was the Vespa evening in Ho Chi Minh City and our romantic, private boat trip in Halong Bay!
Crisney was very attentive to meeting our goals for this trip and worked hard with her partners to make sure we had an excellent experience. — We were well-prepared for our trip, and the resources provided by Crisney and her partners were very helpful.
Thank You again for making fantastic arrangements!
Just returned to the USA. The accommodations were fantastic. Each place was different, exceptionally good lodging and food. The bats at Tree House were really great to see! The balloon ride was the highlight and all 10 of us went!
The mosaic team was very responsive to our needs. Everything occurred as was promised, and on time.
The planning process encompassed a composite and complete, organized menu of various things to do. Another plus was the constant communication with Mosaic Safaris, either by email, text, or phone.
