When my wife and I were gathering quotes for our African honeymoon, one company stood out far above the rest. Jessica took a personalized, caring, and detailed approach to helping us plan our dream trip. She was best fit for the job- she has a love for Africa (Tanzania especially), is personally connected to its people and culture, and has extensive experience to make planning comfortable and efficient. The entire trip was seamless. Everything turned out better than we could have imagined. My advice to anyone choosing between a few companies- go with Jessica!

The travel company did a phenomenal job helping me plan a family vacation for multiple families. We started planning for this trip in 2019 and were scheduled to travel for Christmas holiday in December 2020; it was originally planned for 20+ travelers.  Due to the pandemic, we had to postpone the trip twice and more than half the travelers had to cancel. The travel planner and her team were unbelievably attentive and patient with all of the changes to the dates, the itinerary, and the number of clients. With every change, she was very mindful of the budget and the overall vision for the trip.  If the details are important to you (and why wouldn't they be with a trip like this), I would highly recommend this travel company!

Talk about the trip of a lifetime. Our trip was magical, memorable, and worry-free. Our travel designer from the travel company helped us plan our two-week honeymoon and it was better than we could have ever imagined. He spent so much time and effort in creating the perfect and unique trip for us. He listened to our preferences, priorities, and concerns, and tailored the trip to what we were looking for. Even with COVID changing our initial plans, he was right there with a great backup option and was always available for a phone call to discuss and adjust our plans. When we wanted to change around a couple of aspects of the itinerary (for example, a different hotel for part of the trip) he had multiple backup options.Going to Africa a few days after getting married, during a global pandemic, was a challenge. However, the designer and the staff in Tanzania made the trip seamless and relaxing. Once we got to Tanzania, we felt like we were always being looked out for and always well taken care of. Our safari driver was exceptional. He was so fun to travel with and always found the best spots for us to view wildlife on our game drives. He was fun, kind, knowledgeable, and he went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and protected. After a week of safari, we got to end our trip in Zanzibar. Although the weather was spotty, the resort had so much to offer. Our villa was beautiful with a private pool, the food was wonderful, and the pool/beach were incredible. Our honeymoon package included a massage and a private beachfront dinner. The staff was always available to help and went out of their way to be hospitable.Some family members decided to surprise us with additional experiences throughout our honeymoon as a wedding gift. We only learned after how helpful our travel designer was with putting the surprises together and helping them pick out memorable, special, and romantic experiences.We look back on our trip so fondly and highly recommend the travel team. We so appreciate that he made sure to follow up with us after our trip and couldn't wait to hear about it and help us relive our favorite moments.

The trip was great - everything we wanted it to be! The travel designer was very responsive in adjusting our itinerary to make sure that we got the experiences and accommodations that we wanted in each of the four locations we went.  The transports that the designer arranged were very professional, friendly, punctual, and knowledgeable.  This was the perfect way to plan and spend our honeymoon!

My daughter and I felt well taken care of during our trip to Israel and Jordan with our travel coordinator, personal representative in Jerusalem and our driver in Jordan by our side via app or cell phone or in person (driver) every step of our journey. They were gladly available 24/7 whether we had a question to ask or there was a delay with our plans or an issue with anything or they just wanted to provide us a reminder of the next activity or check in to see how we were doing.

This was not our first safari in Africa, but this was our first time using the travel company.  They truly exceeded our expectations. There was NOT one hiccup the whole trip from the time we got off the plane in Rwanda until we headed back home 2 weeks later from Kilimanjaro. We had stated that we wanted everything to be private and to have first class service and accommodations and they made sure that happened.  We had someone help us through customs, covid testing, baggage claim, transportation to lodges, etc.  We never had to worry about a thing!  The people were so friendly and helpful and the accommodations were spectacular. I would highly recommend if you want a fantastic vacation with no worries.Stephanie H.United States

South Africa, Botswana, Zambia & Namibia Trip Review: Sossusvlei, Safari Tour, Krueger National Park, Victoria Falls

Our trip to South Africa, Zambia, Botswana and Namibia was an amazing trip having a large variety of sites, from cities to waterfalls (Victoria Falls) to wild animals in three different game parks and amazing desert colors. We did a lot of travelling, mostly by small charter planes. The basic itinerary was developed by us with a lot of input from our agent, Tanya, who finalized it and arranged all the accommodations, guides, travel arrangements, hotels, game parks etc. Not only were all the arrangements complete and met our requirements, but during the trip she constantly stayed in touch with us and was on top of every step of the way, including unforeseen changes (e.g., delay in flights).We travel frequently around the world, and this was one of our most successful trips.

We were very pleased with our travel company experience and would 100% work with them again for a future trip to Africa. Having booked for 2020 travel our agent was very flexible helping us reschedule due to the pandemic. In addition the team was knowledgeable and comprehensive. Every detail of our visit was flawlessly accounted for. We visited Cape Town, Zambia and Botswana.

This Africa travel company provided excellent communication, recommendations, and service from our initial contact through a follow-up post-trip. We originally booked this trip in 2019 for 2020 prior to the onset of Covid, which led to many uncertainties and changes until it was finally executed in 2021. Canceled flights and changes by a Zambia carrier proved to be challenging for all, but our travel company was monitoring this and took immediate action to resolve connections and lodging issues with each change. Flights going and coming from Africa were not full and the same was true for many internal flights. The exception was for the Zambia flights so one might presume that a canceled flight today would mean a fuller flight tomorrow. The actual execution of our trip went off perfectly and we were very pleased. We felt we were in great hands and well supported if there had been flight issues etc. while en route. 

This was our third trip to Africa and we've been on safari for all three. This trip was well organized and there were many transfers and flights involving four different countries in Africa (South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, and Zimbabwe). At this time, each border crossing required a PCR test for Covid, so our travel planner had to help us coordinate this as well, in order to make this trip possible. At every transfer point, a representative met us to help navigate the local procedures and facilitate movement to our next flight, hotel, border crossing, etc. If we'd been on our own we'd likely have figured this out, but not with the efficiency and knowledge of the processes and procedures that this staff had. Their presence provided an enormous time saving, efficiency, and made the trip less stressful because we knew someone would tell us what to do next. Who would expect for example that we'd be required to clear security prior to checking in for our next flight? Or that baggage would be dropped at the door we'd just entered in the airport vs. another baggage claim area. In Johannesburg, we were quickly escorted for about a 15 minute walk to the lobby of our hotel. It's a large airport and not having to figure it out after a lengthy flight from the USA made this easy and added value.  

Team Charles, Sarah, and Karen listened to what we wanted on our trip, and instead of focusing just on Botswana and Victoria Falls, they recommended Zambia as well. For Victoria Falls, we were told Zimbabwe is where we wanted to be. Advice was also provided for the Visa for Zambia/Zimbabwe. Our accommodations were all excellent. We actually benefited substantially with lodging upgrades and private vehicles and guides by traveling to Africa while most are staying home due to Covid. We were comfortable at camps with staff that were vaccinated at all but one of our five camps, masking, social distancing, and sanitization. Significant effort is being made to keep the few travelers visiting safe, so tourism may return sooner vs. later. At one of our airports, the restroom stalls in either Botswana or Zambia were being cleaned after every use! With this said, we've encouraged friends to mask up and consider travel now or in the next six months if they have the opportunity. 

We strongly recommend working with this Africa travel company and felt that the presence of staff both in the USA and Africa helped. For this trip, we took a chance as our decision was between doing a trip with this company and with another travel company we've booked with numerous times. We went with this company because it was based on our desired itinerary and we'd be on our own in camps vs. being with a group. My spouse was particularly concerned about this aspect with covid and all the itinerary changes we'd seen prior to the trip, but in the end, we were both extremely satisfied with the end result and format of the trip. We would gladly book another trip through this company.

Our travel designers at this travel company sent us on a incredible Safari tour of Kenya and Tanzania.  All the places we stayed were awesome and we were able to relax and enjoy so many of the wonders of East Africa!  All of our transfers were handled seamlessly and we even made it through many rounds of covid testing thanks to the designers.  The wildlife we saw was beyond our wildest dreams because of great guides and the excellent service.  Meals  were lovely ol and really fine dining experiences.

From the moment I talked with Charles, I knew I made the right decision on a travel agent. He was extremely helpful in coming up with an itinerary that would cover everything that I wanted to do plus a few other suggestions. Since our trip was scheduled for 2020, we of course needed to postpone due to COVID and Charles was very helpful about getting our trip postponed to 2021. There was so much angst about whether we should postpone again till 2022 but with Charles' gentle nudging and reassurance we decided to go this year and I am so happy we did. I think we had an experience that was probably pretty unique because literally there is no one traveling to Africa. We were upgraded at many places, were the only ones at the camp on a few occasions, and there were some flights where we were the only ones or maybe a couple of other people with us.  

We had a wonderful time in Cape Town exploring the wine country, a drive down to Cape of Good Hope, a ferry ride to Robbin Island (where Nelson Mandela served part of his prison sentence), and visited the prison. We also visited Table Mesa Mountain and the botanical gardens. I think we spent just the right amount of time there, three and half days. 

From there we traveled to Botswana and stayed in three different safari camps for eight nights. This being our first trip to Africa, I think Botswana was the perfect place for our introduction. We were to see so many animals; each day was so exciting because every day you don't know what you are going to see.

From Botswana, we traveled to Zambia where we saw Victoria Falls; one of the seven wonders of the world.  It is an amazing sight!!

Then it was on to Zimbabwe, where we stayed at our final safari camp.  

By far, this has been one of the best trips we have ever taken. We have been to many countries around the world, but this is at the top of the best.

The trip was well planned and executed, covering four major locations in Africa.The land and air transportation were organized in a very efficient manner; no major delays, and drivers were always on time.The accommodations at each location were high quality and provided excellent service. The locations of accommodations were well selected.All the drivers, guides and staff were courteous and helpful; we received a lot of help at immigration points in getting all the forms completed and passports submitted without having to wait in long lines.The sightseeing tour in the  Cape Town area and Victoria Falls were thrilling and memorable.Our safari trips at Umkumbe were also memorable and the guide was top rate. The safari trip in Chobe park  took us to see many  wild animals up close, especially elephants; that trip was quite bumpy, and we would encourage the safari provider to provide vehicles with improved shock absorbers;  the sunset cruise at Chobe Villas was most enjoyable. There was a previous sunset cruise at Victoria falls I believe, which was not worthwhile.Received excellent service from the travel company; would have like them to check in with us during the trip

If you are considering an outfitter to plan a trip to Africa, I cannot express strongly enough how much you should consider this travel agency!  I just returned from a 2-week “trip of a lifetime” safari that was originally scheduled to start one-week before the global lockdown.  My travel planner had created the most incredible trip to Tanzania to see the Serengeti and then to Rwanda to see the mountain gorillas. I was not sure how they would be able to handle the lock-down given the unknowns of travel for an unknown period of time.  The long-term nature of this travel company's relationships with their vendors coupled with the professionalism and integrity of their company resulted in the trip being rescheduled (a few times) without really any increase in costs and at the same exceptional accommodations and itinerary. The camps I stayed at were exquisite (5 star) and gave me such a personal feel of different ways to experience the Serengeti.  The personal guides in both Tanzania and Rwanda were beyond my expectations in their knowledge, passion, and dedication to supporting an exceptional client experience. Additionally, this travel company demonstrated at every step of the trip their personal commitment to ensure I felt safe and secure (given Covid concerns/requirements and unfamiliarity with the countries), and supported 24/7 with every question, no matter how small or large.   I hope to return to Africa again… and I would ONLY use this travel company.  Please consider them… and just give them a call.  From the very first contact, I knew this was the company with whom I wanted to build my trip of a lifetime adventure.

The trip was managed extremely well from the moment we landed in South Africa to the time we departed. Everyone that we were supposed to meet were on time and acted in a very professional manner. The overall recommendations from our agent were spot on in terms of meeting and mostly exceeding our expectations. Would highly recommend our agent Stella to anyone that is planning a trip to SA.

This was our first adventure to Africa and Charles listened to our wish list for our trip and magically created a custom trip that far exceeded our expectations and met our budget. Our group of four adults spent three days in Cape Town at a beautiful hotel and had a spectacular guide who showed us so much including the Cape of Good Hope, African penguins, Robbin Island, and wineries. From there we flew to Botswana for six days and stayed at two wonderful, but different, bush camps in Botswana. The two camps that this travel company chose for us had expert guides, great food, and beautiful accommodations. Both camps were conservation-minded and contributed to the community that surrounded them. We had fantastic game drives with close-up viewing of so many different species including lions, elephants, sable antelope, zebra, giraffe, baboons, and a baby leopard, just to name a few. We ended our trip in Zimbabwe and saw the falls from a walking tour, had a beautiful guided sunset boat ride for our group only. At every turn, we had great helpers, pilots, chefs, staff, and guides.

The whole trip was flawless. This Africa travel company thought of every detail, including having a Covid test team helicoptered in to the bush in Botswana so we could travel to Zimbabwe. There is absolutely no way we could have made this trip a reality without the expertise and attention to detail that this company provided especially with the additional concerns with Covid. This was my dream trip for my lifetime and this Africa travel company made it a reality.
