Quintess Adventures make every day matter based on the member’s wishes. The Club adds new Adventures annually based on member feedback and requests.
“We’d always wanted to take a trip to Africa, but thought we would wait until our youngest son (who was seven at the time) was a little older,” said Quintess Collection Member Jenny Sendek. “We planned a Quintess Adventures trip to Botswana and South Africa. The logistics were just amazing. Safaris can be a very difficult thing to do on your own, and it was just great to have the whole thing laid out for us. I wouldn’t take another trip like this without Quintess … they have experience with us and know our family and what we like. That was invaluable. Plus, each camp was beautiful, the animal sightings were simply unbelievable, and everyone we encountered was amazing. The whole experience was magical from start to finish.”
