This was a fantastic trip - dare I say the trip of a lifetime - and we travel a lot! We traveled as a family of 4 with two boys age 4 and 5. Our agent and travel team did an excellent job of taking into consideration what our needs would be as a family with small children - making sure the boys could participate... Read more
From my first conversation with our agent, I knew I was in good hands.

Not only was the trip designed for incredible wildlife viewing but what also surprised and... Read more
Would like to rate it 4.8 stars but your program does not allow "partial" stars. 5 Star means beyond perfection to me; difficult to attain but I do believe they were closer to perfect than not. Our safari travel company was exceptional. I do believe our agent planned a perfect trip to Africa for us. She... Read more

We have been looking at trips to Africa for the last two years, talking and meeting with many travel agents who "specialize" in this destination. We always came away more confused and disappointed with the information we received , as no one seemed to care what we wanted , it was always what they thought we should... Read more
Every detail of our trip was well thought out and executed. Our agent at this Africa safari travel company planned a month long trip for our family (kids ages 11 and 13).

This was the best vacation I've had so far in my lifetime (I'm 30). The overall package was expensive relative to what I'm used to spending on vacations, but it was worth it. Everything was very well organized, and if we were ever unclear on something from our trip itinerary, our questions were either answered... Read more

For more than 50 years my wife and I have been inveterate, but usually independent, travelers. With little time to study and prepare for a once in a lifetime trip to South Africa from the USA, we turned to a comprehensive agency, to which we had been referred by Zicasso. They made all of the plans for us, aside... Read more
The trip was really better than we could have ever imagined. We planned a trip at the very last minute (about five weeks before departure) and our travel agent and her team put together an amazing itinerary within a day or two that completely met our particular needs and desires. She could not have been better, or... Read more
In one word - AWESOME!

Next stop was Capetown and the Mount Nelson Hotel - old world luxury and charm -... Read more
