What Our Guests Say

Thank you very much for helping us to plan the best vacation ever!  I'm still basking in the glory of our trip to South Africa.  It was truly amazing!  Everything was first class and exceeded our expectations.
The Waterfront hotel in Cape Town was fantastic.  The staff learned our names, and were extremely pleasant.  The Kapama Lodge really exceeded our expectations.  From IP who picked us up at the airport, to Daron that checked us in, to our housekeeper Gift, and our safari driver Shanae and Stanley, we were never disappointed.  The food was great and the spa was amazing!!!
By far the most exciting point of the trip was the school visit.  The children at Moshesh will forever be in our hearts.  It was a blessing to be a blessing to the students and teachers.
As you can see, I can elaborate for hours about this trip.  I have shared the highlights with anyone who is willing to listen and look at my pictures.
Best regards / Mit freundlichen Grüßen,

"Hi Mark! I wanted to thank you for the AMAZING South African adventure you planned for my family! It was PERFECT in every way! I honestly could not believe that with so many moving parts, that everything went off without a hitch! All the transfer pick-ups arrived EARLY to meet us.  There was never question about what was happening next. The shark dive was cancelled due to poor weather and boating conditions.  But they were quickly able to accommodate us on the following day.  What an amazing adventure!  We LOVED the Sun Cullinan hotel and its perfect location to the waterfront. The tour guide, Jason, who led us on the full day Cape Tour was AWESOME. And we met some cool families along the way following in our footsteps! The Serondella Lodge was so wonderful, that we literally cried when we left! Chewie, the Ranger, and his partner, Monica, the hostess, were some of the most wonderful people we have ever met, and they found a place in our heart forever!  The Victoria Falls Hotel was a perfect finish.  Thank you! thank you! I will be back to have you book my clients on this same adventure.  It was truly a trip of a lifetime and I appreciate all your insights to make it happen!"

Thanks to Hilari and her efficiency and knowledge, we enjoyed a trip that was a once in a lifetime experience. The resorts and events set up, especially at the Bakubung Bush Lodge and the Victoria Falls Safari and Lodge were unforgettable. Thanks again for everything and would definitely look to you again for future destinations.

“We had a fabulous trip to Botswana , everything was set up and executed perfectly. The staff at all the camps couldn't have been nicer ( especially our guides Mod and Baba) and went out of their way to accommodate is. I would highly recommend this trip and you as the travel agent who put it together.  Hopefully we be back soon to continue the adventure. All the best.”

“We cannot thank you enough. This trip was absolutely amazing. Capetown and the Ivory Tree Lodge were amazing. The staff at both places at Cape Sun, Ivory Tree Lodge, and the transfer companies were friendly and extremely professional. Our only complaint is that we didn’t stay long enough.  We really appreciate all of your time and patience in putting this trip together. We have told our friends and family all about it. We have also posted a lot of pictures on facebook. Everything was coordinated to the minute. I really don’t know where to begin but I will tell you that we will be returning and when we do we will be using your services. Thank you so much!!!!”
