The trip was fantastic - everything went smoothly and was efficient and as detailed in our itinerary. Melanie was very thorough - even setting up a briefing call for us to review the itinerary and details. She checked in frequently on various forms and requirements, as well as when we were in-country.

We had the most wonderful safari experience in Tanzania and visited Serengeti, Ngorongoro, and Tarangire national parks. The entire trip from planning, transfer, lodging, and activities, everything was so easy and effortless. Owner Jessica did a great job communicating with us every step of the way, she created a customized plan from day 1 and was accommodating to fine-tune details whenever we asked, and we greatly appreciated her knowledge, experience, and insight. We could not have picked a better itinerary. We were so fortunate to have our private guide for 11 days. He was beyond amazing. Our guide has a great personality, we jokingly say he also has superhuman eyesight where he can spot wildlife that's comparable to 40x binoculars. He is extremely knowledgeable about the different types of animals, birds, and local trees and plants. We were also impressed by his strong work ethic and how he was always thoughtful to ensure we have the best experience. For example, our trip was during the Christmas break when it frequently had short rains, our guide would wash his car twice a day so that we would always have clean windows for a great view, and a clean car for us. We saw so many amazing animals interacting in their natural habitat and it's hard to put in words, and certainly nothing like the zoo.  This was such a great experience, with too many special memories to cherish. Highly recommend our guide and the travel company!

Rachel and the staff at our travel agency are truly incredible! We had originally booked this trip for 2020 and had to delay it twice due to COVID travel restrictions. Throughout this time, Rachel kept in frequent contact with us about our trip, handling details, multiple questions, and providing reassurance that our trip would eventually happen-and it finally did in December, 2023. The travel agency handled all transitions, transfers, flights, accommodations and excursions very well and we had no problems in the countries we visited. The suggestions for excursions for our family were perfect and we enjoyed everything we did. We loved both the cultural dinners/excursions as well as viewing the cities and wildlife in Africa. The hotels that this company booked for us were wonderful and fit our needs perfectly. We were amazed at the attention to detail each day of our 20 day itinerary that was provided and it made it easy for us to travel all across South Africa and Zimbabwe. We are so grateful to Rachel and her staff for making this a trip of a lifetime for our family that we will always remember. I would highly recommend this agency to all who are interested in traveling in southern Africa!

Neil with our travel agency was amazing! He is so passionate about sharing the wonder, adventure, and beauty of South Africa with his clients and is also very mindful of budget and what you are personally looking for on your trip. We booked our honeymoon with Neil and it was without a doubt the best trip we have ever taken. Every suggestion from the amount of time in each destination, to the accommodations, to the activities was perfect! We would not have changed one thing about our trip. I put my full faith in Neil and was not disappointed at all!

Dan and Mandy from the travel agency are absolutely incredible to work with. We reached out for help planning our honeymoon. We didn't reach out in the most timely fashion and were incredibly stressed with wedding planning when we did. I had 1 conversation with Dan and that was all he needed to put together our absolute dream honeymoon. He somehow read my mind in ~20 minutes, made us feel incredibly comfortable traveling to a part of the world we had never been and immediately put us at ease that we were in good hands. Dan and Mandy helped us with every single step to make sure we were prepared for the trip so we could simply relax and enjoy it. They answered multiple rounds of questions and were flexible while providing their input as we finalized the details of our trip. Every detail was handled while we were on our trip and it felt like we had really good friends (with incredible taste in travel that we look up to) on the journey with us. We cannot recommend using the travel team to book your trip enough - these guys will be dealing with us for decades to come.

Natalie at our travel agency orchestrated an amazing family holiday for us which included a stay at a lodge near Kruger National Park and a hotel in Cape Town. It was designed to balance our adult daughters' needs for sunbathing and my desire to be on African Safari the entire trip. And I would say Natalie nailed it. Moroever, this trip started during the time of Covid, so I believe it was postponed not once but twice. Natalie diligently canceled and rescheduled flights. She advised us on when to buy tickets and worked to balance getting us the tickets we needed with the best price. She was attentive, listened, and delivered. I'd use her again if we return to South Africa.

My husband and I had one of the most memorable trips. All in all the arrangements made by our travel agency were great. We visited Kenya, Zanzibar and Tanzania national parks. All arrangements were excellent especially the ones in Kenya and Tanzania. I feel Zanzibar could have been better maybe a beach resort as it’s an island as opposed to a room in the city.Our tour guide was fabulous in Kenya, very entertaining, witty and knowledgeable.Our travel agency took good care of us, at no point we felt stranded or left on our own. Our tour guides in Zanzibar and Tanzania were also great. Our guide in Tanzania was amazing, he put in a lot of effort to make sure we did not miss the big 5 and took personal interest in making sure our trip went well and we returned home happy.I would highly recommend folks to book their trip/itinerary through this travel company, they are professional and help curate the trip as per your requirements.A special mention here for the driver of all this Maurice, he is the one who created our itinerary and coordinated our whole trip, he is a true gentleman and went above and beyond to make sure we are satisfied with all trip arrangements.

African Safari Trip Review: South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, 16-Day Tour

We met the most friendly, passionate, and welcoming people throughout Africa while traveling in South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and Botswana. We were able to observe the big five and a significant number of other animals in their natural habitats. Traveling through the various countries and passport control can be intimidating, but overall fairly easy depending on how you are traveling (air or land).This is a good travel company and all our transfers were available as coordinated. One issue that could have been communicated better is the camp accommodations. A sail tent is nice if you understand that they get very hot during the day and some camps we stayed at did not have A/C or the A/C was only available for a 2-hour period. In addition, one camp had no wi-fi or cell service. If this is what you what, then no issue. However, it was unexpected.

We had a memorable safari vacation in South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Botswana and we owe it to Natalie of our travel agency, South Africa, for her relentless commitment to bring this vacation to fruition after 2 years of numerous uncertainties due to Covid-19. What struck us about Natalie was her thorough professionalism, dedication, attention to smallest details and to our custom requirements in organizing this trip and its execution. This trip was originally scheduled for June 2020 covering accommodations in several lodges, ground and internal air transfers which had to be canceled and rebooked multiple times due to evolving Covid situations in USA, South Africa, Zimbabwe/Zambia, and Botswana. We highly recommend travelers to contact Natalie for a customized vacation to Africa.

We just returned from a 3 week four country (South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Botswana) trip that involved six internal flights and numerous transfers, seven hotels and lodges and other tours and events. All sent off without a hitch. Rachel provided a clear detailed itinerary that met all our needs to intimate, interesting locations away from overly commercial, crowded tourist trap accommodations. Highlights for us was self-driving through the rugged and empty roads of Namibia, down to the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa, the stunning beauty of the Zambezi River and Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe and wild beauty of our safari in Botswana. What was priceless were all our conversations with the different people we met from Africa on our journey. I have traveled extensively around the world, but had never spent time in Southern Africa, and cannot wait to return. The hospitality, the food, the wine and the adventure surpassed my expectations, and I have Rachel to thank for an incredibly well-planned adventure.

If I could mark this as a 10 star experience, I would. The travel company did a phenomenal job at planning and helping us have an enchanting 4 weeks long tour of Southern Africa in some of the most memorable, iconic, and fantastic places on earth. We started planning the trip 3 years before we could actually travel due to the restrictions imposed by Covid but our travel agent stood by us and worked with us the entire way to make this happen. At every step of the way, I felt that we received the best advice, recommendation, and service. We ended up visiting South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, and Zimbabwe/Zambia (Victoria Falls). We stayed at 12 locations, flew 7 flights intra-Africa,  and had 17 transfers to and from our destinations, not to mention the 30 plus trips/outings/drives that we took at the various locations. All this worked without one single snag. Everybody we met along the way and worked with were absolutely incredible; professional, courteous, friendly, and happy to assist in a genuine way, which made us feel welcome and added tremendously to the experience. The travel company was always just an email or phone call away and always responded immediately to the various questions I had as well as accommodated changes without any issues. In addition, we had several heartwarming surprises along the way that the company arranged to help us celebrate an anniversary and my wife's birthday.I do not hesitate to give the highest rating and warm recommendation to the travel company. Book with confidence knowing that they will go the extra hundred miles to ensure you will have the time of your life and remember fondly your trip to Africa.Thank you so very much Kylie, Rachel and the travel team, you have helped Monica and I to enjoy your beautiful part of the world, learn so many things, and make memories (supported by 6,500 pictures and 24 hours of video footage) that we will treasure for the rest of our lives.

Our African Safari finally happened after being postponed from January 2020. This was our first time using Zicasso and we are overwhelmed what an extraordinary travel specialist Natalie from this travel company is. Although we have travelled extensively in the past, this was our first safari. Prior to leaving we did have a few concerns regarding unknowns of a Safari experience. Natalie was knowledgable, patient, responsive and assuring. Natalie followed up and stayed in touch over the time it took for us to finally take our trip, she listened to our concerns, needs and requirements, and met each and every one of them. She organized this amazing memorable and luxurious Safari experience with fantastic guides and accommodations. We toured from Johannesburg to African Safari in Botswana to Victoria Falls to South African Safari's and to beautiful Cape Town. Our African Safari experience exceeded our expectations. We will cherish this trip and look forward to visiting again. We are left with lots of good memories.Thank you Natalie for this exceptional first time Safari experience!

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.

My husband and I just returned from a fabulous 3 1/2 week trip to Africa. We had selected this travel company to plan our trip. Rachel was wonderful to work with. She listened to our ideas and goals for the trip and planned accordingly. I had a couple of questions along the way and she responded quickly with helpful comments. It really helps when your travel agent is in country. The trip included travel to multiple countries which can be exhausting but everything went incredibly smoothly. We were met by local agents all along the way who knew our names and assisted us in every transfer of which there were many. The trip exceeded our expectations. I would strongly recommend Rachel and her travel team at this travel agency!Anne B

My wife and I completed a trip of a lifetime to Africa with 2 of our adult kids (27 ,21).The trip was an awesome experience from seeing the amazing wildlife up close on safari, the bustling city of Cape of Town, the breathtaking Victoria Falls, and the warm and welcoming local culture, arts and cuisine of the African people.Danni and her team (Karen and Fungai) at our travel agency took time to really understand our priorities/personalities and guided us from the initial planning/itinerary, preparation and every detail to make the trip so special. No stone was left unturned by the agency including local pickups/guides/transportation/transfers every step of the way. The trip was highly customized to our desires/needs. We felt like VIPs!We also made some last minute changes/additions to the itinerary and they were super supportive in making those happen.

We started planning our African safari in July 2019 with stops in Johannesburg, Victoria Fall, Safari's in Botswana and 4 days at the end on Cape Town. After working with 2 companies referred by Zicasso, we decided to move forward with this travel agency. Sara and the travel team were fantastic to work with. After finalizing customized itinerary for our "July 2020" safari, we had to regroup due to Covid and travel concerns. Sara worked with us to postpone the trip to July 2022 and made sure that all of our deposits were protected. We regrouped in September 2021 and worked with Sara to fine tune the itinerary and travel dates. Throughout the planning, Sara and her staff were always available to answer our questions and make pivot with us as needed. When an internal airline went bankrupt, Sara was on top of it and made sure that alternative flights were arranged. When we needed to change our original hotel in Cape Town due to renovations, Sara got us rooms at another hotel (which was amazing). A week before our scheduled departure, Sara discovered that the jeep safari would not be available at one of the lodges due to high waters in the Okavango Delta. In 24-hours, she worked with us to rearrange our schedule to add an alternate lodge on the Botetit River where jeep safari's were available. The 3 lodges were fantastic and our guides were amazing. Our tours in South Africa were first class with great guides. We would definitely recommend that you use Sara and our travel company if you are planning a trip to Africa.

My wife and I recently planned a trip with our travel agency through Zicasso. We could not have asked for a better experience in Kenya and Tanzania. Maurice was responsive and engaged with us the whole trip to ensure all of our needs were met. The accommodations were excellent, the itinerary was well designed and they did an excellent job of fitting everything in our budget. It was a perfect trip!
