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 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!

This was a complicated trip to plan which we spent a year planning. The travel company planned the middle three weeks of a five week trip. We planned one week on either end, coordinating all the way on both ends for a smooth transition into the travel company middle portion at the beginning and out of the company portion at the beginning of our last week. All of the transitions were executed flawlessly, on both ends.Once we gained a greater appreciation how critical these interfaces were, we expressed over and over to ourselves how fortunate our choice of this travel company to help us plan this adventure for our family had been.Two weeks before our departure, developments with the Omicron variant over Thanksgiving weekend caused us concern, not over the virus but with travel bans various countries were imposing on visitors to certain Southern Africa countries. The travel company gave us non-hurried counsel and advice, leading us to make a strategic decision to substitute Jordan for South Africa in a move that enabled us to complete our entire journey without a single border-crossing problem. At a time when the trip details should already have been finalized, the company helped to make this last-minute change at a financial cost to them and expenditure of uncompensated time and effort.Even after the travel company portion of the trip was over,  one person in our group of 12 tested positive, precluding that person and myself from moving to the next country. I contacted the travel company as well as other resources for advice and assistance. The company’s advice has been the most helpful.Even on routine planning for the trip, the principals of the company helped us plan a trip for our families that several expressed to us was flawless and far exceeded expectations. The travel company certainly exceeded our expectations.We could continue describing examples of how pleased we are with our decision to choose this company, but we hope these few will suffice. From beginning to end, the travel company was committed to doing what was best for us, not what was best for them.

Our travel agent did an amazing job helping plan a trip to South Africa and Victoria Falls for us. From the initial phone call to discuss our preferences so she could create a tailor-made itinerary, to the little added touches along the way to acknowledge my parents’ 50th wedding anniversary, she really helped create a once in a lifetime adventure that we will never forget!

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!

Our first Safari trip to South Africa fulfiled all of our dreams and expectations and then some. We had the trip of a lifetime and most of the credit goes to the travel team. From helping with the initial planning to making last minute changes they were fabulous. We were always made to feel very comfortable, from meeting us at every airport to assist with transport to reschedualing side trips to better meet our needs the travel team was on top of it all. We would not have had as good a trip as we did with out there help and guidence.

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.

I felt from my first conversation with the travel planner that this travel company was the travel agent for us. I am thrilled to say that my instincts were right! Our travel planner was incredibly knowledgeable and she took the time to understand the type of experience that we wanted. This was our first visit to South Africa and we wanted to make the most of it.  The tours, the accommodations, the restaurant recommendations - everything was to our liking and often exceeded our expectations. South Africa is indescribably beautiful and everything about our trip was perfectly planned.  Thanks to the travel company, this was the trip of a lifetime.

Absolutely incredible!! Tara was the most amazing travel agent I could have ever asked for. She not only made this dream trip happen with a limited amount of time, but also fit in all the wonders of South Africa and made the process seamless. Tara was attentive, organized, and available whenever I needed her. I recommend everyone to use Zicasso now and I am planning a trip for my parents through Zicasso, as well!

The travel company was wonderful.  The travel company listened to the kind of experience we wanted and came up with a great vacation that included a variety of experiences as well as a segment just for my husband and me as well as a segment that included our grown children and their spouses.  We had originally planned our trip for April of 2020 but Covid made it impossible to go.  The travel company worked with the venues we had chosen and the guides and they were able to recreate our trip for April of 2022, at virtually no added cost. We had lots of questions, which they graciously and thoroughly answered.  Their online itinerary and resource materials [e.g. tipping in SA, what to pack on a safari, tips and advice for staying safe] were extremely useful and easy to distribute among our party.  Along the way, we had to make a couple of adjustments in our schedule due to airline scheduling changes from the US to South Africa, and the company quickly and professionally responded with needed adjustments to our arrangements in South Africa. We needed their help once during the trip and they were right there with the support we needed.  We can't say enough great things about the travel company.  We had an exciting, enlightening trip, thanks to their help.

South Africa has been at the top of my bucket list since I can remember. So it only seemed fitting to plan a honeymoon destination to South Africa. I thoroughly did my research before picking a travel agency to make sure we went with the best in the business. To say everything from start to finish was exceptional with the travel company is an understatement! From the beginning of the process, our travel designer ensured every detail of the trip was planned to the utmost satisfaction. She jumped through every hoop and made sure it was the trip of our dreams and planned every little detail to do so. She stayed communicative through the whole process, even when we had questions during our trip. Our South Africa honeymoon was by far THE BEST TRIP we have ever been on.

We cannot thank the travel team enough! We have honeymoon memories that will stay with us for a lifetime. If you’re looking for an Africa Travel Agency, look no further - this travel company is the best! We will be back and with this company again!

My husband and I loved every single second of our time in South Africa. All of the accommodations were luxurious, impeccably clean with absolutely wonderful staff. We felt so well looked-after and our travel agent was so supportive through every step of the way, even when dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic and rescheduling!

The travel designer at this tour agency was amazing!!! She worked with helping us make the perfect itinerary that fit within our budget for our honeymoon. She was very responsive whenever we had any questions or concerns, and she was very helpful sending updates about Covid travel restrictions, testing etc. When we were in Cape Town, we had the best tour guide that showed us all the best spots! During our safari, we stayed at Arathusa lodge, which was the most surreal experience. The lodge is so beautiful, the staff was amazing, and we saw so many animals. We can’t wait to book our next trip to South Africa with the travel designer!

We just returned from our honeymoon to South Africa a few weeks ago and cannot be happier with going with this South Africa travel company. Rachel was an absolute pleasure to work with- very easy to communicate, extremely prompt and highly detail oriented. She was flexible and completely open to going with my requests, offering her recommendations but not being pushy. We had a number of changes in a relatively short span of time and Rachel ensured each transition was very smooth. The transport company she worked with was fantastic and on time. She also worked with the resorts/ hotels to add in extra special treats for us during each stay. As a bonus, her company's pricing was better than the competition.Overall, I highly recommend this travel company and Rachel.

This was truly a trip of a lifetime. My wife and I have been wanting to go to South Africa for years and we finally did it amidst much uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. It was worth every second and that is because of Natalie, our travel specialist. She was absolutely spectacular. We worked with her for over a year planning this trip through several changes and she was there every step of the way. Even when we got to South Africa, we were able to contact her to make changes and additions to our itinerary and she was always pleasant and available. We must have gone through 20 different itineraries, but the one we landed on was absolutely spectacular. There aren't enough wonderful things to say about her. From the first call to now, she's been wonderful and I'd recommend her for any trip to the absolutely breathtaking country of South Africa and beyond. The people across the board were so wonderful. From drivers to hotel staff to housekeeping and cooking. All were amazing and the food we ate throughout our trip was to die for.As for traveling during COVID-19, it was a very positive experience. We were tested 72 hours ahead in the US and received our tests in plenty of time to print them and bring them to the airport. In South Africa, we waited a little less than an hour for a test ahead of our return flight home, but it was an easy process and the results were promptly received. From mask-wearing to hand sanitizer, everything was expected, but hardly impacted our experience.Thank you again for everything!
