Our Tanzania trip was excellent. Neil arranged our trip. He listened to all our interests about the safaris and answered all our questions with sincerity and patience. During our trip one location was added in order to see the migration.  We stayed in 5 camps in total and all the locations were excellent. The service, the people and the food all were very good.The sunsets, the sunrises and the animals we saw and heard at nights from the camps were amazing. We were prepared for the mosquitos but there were none. We were not sick for a single day. We saw elephants, lions, cheetahs, zebras, giraffes, hyenas, hippos and gazelles so close to our van it was unimaginable. We saw the amazing birds and all other animals, too many to mention.Our guide was excellent. The instinct he has and the eyes to see the animals from far was very impressive. Because of him we could see a Cheetah kill and the migration and many more memorable moments.Seeing the animals in the vast landscape of Africa in their natural surroundings was amazing.  This was a trip of a lifetime.

I tell every person that I know to use Zicasso when planning a trip-- I couldn't have better things to say about working with Zicasso! It was intimidating to even know where to start with planning our honeymoon in South Africa and the Zicasso team set us up with Rachel from this travel company. They were absolutely incredible-- everything from helping us planning the itinerary to making dinner reservations to even helping us coordinate to potentially seeing a doctor when my husband was ill during our stay. They made traveling such a breeze for us and planned our perfect trip!

The travel agency is an exceptional company!  From their initial presentation we found the photographic representation of the possible journey to be stunning!  But the clincher for choosing Dan and Mandy to arrange our trip was actually the text of the presentation. The descriptions were so respectful of the people, the animals, and the cultures we were likely to encounter, as well as the ecologic emphasis of choices made. These aspects resulted in us choosing the travel agency for our adventure.  Most importantly, however, was the outcome of these choices made.  Our adventure was not only consistent with the initial impression of respect for and appreciation of the humanity, the wildlife, and the planet; but also the entire affair exceeded expectations that we developed in anticipation of our trip.Along the way, Dan and Mandy were extremely responsive to any concerns we had, or issues that arose.  Best part, though, was sharing with them the excitement of our daily discoveries.  Our enthusiasm was reflected in their commitment to us having an 'exceeding expectations' experience! We could not be more pleased with the amazing experience Dan and Mandy crafted for us! It will live with us for years, and that is largely due to the personal touch the travel agency provides for their clients.

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!

Tanya from the travel company was excellent. We ( my husband and I) went to Dubai and Seychelles. Tanya took the time to find out from us what we liked, what were our expectations and what we would like to see and/or experience. The trip was planned flawlessly. The pick-up at the Dubai airport was perfect, and the hotel accommodations were great. Every activity was planned to perfection and we enjoyed all of them. She was sure to tell us the dress code for visiting the mosque in Abu Dhabi so there were no surprises. We went to Seychelles and again, thanks to Tanya, the pickup was perfect and the accommodations were great. We had a great time knowing that we did not have to worry about any part of the trip. Tanya was very flexible in accommodating our requests. We had a long layover in Dubai on the way back to the US, and Tanya was able to arrange a short trip which was very welcome and absolutely fabulous! The layover time went quickly. Overall, a fantastic vacation, thanks to Tanya at the travel company.

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.

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.

Where do I begin?! My husband and I had a wonderful last minute trip to South Africa. Although most trips require months of planning in advance, the travel agents with the tour company were able to secure us the best lodges and experiences. We were very flexible and they were more than willing to go above and beyond to help us make this trip a reality! They answered all of our questions and made traveling in Africa a pleasant, smooth experience. Don’t look any further for a travel agent - you have found the experts with the tour company!

We used the Zicasso Air Desk to plan and schedule our flights to and from South Africa, as part of our African safari.  We worked with Dexter on our flight schedules. He was great and made sure that our flight schedules worked with the itinerary we put together with our Africa travel planner. By working with Dexter we were able to make sure that there were no conflicts and that we could select the specific seats that we wanted on our flight.

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 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.

We had the best honeymoon and such an amazing first trip to South Africa - each destination was truly its own adventure and we loved every bit!Rachel worked with us to create the perfect itinerary and was there every step of the way to help us plan. She took the time to understand our interests and also make recommendations based on her experience and that helped us create the trip of a lifetime. There are so many things to consider when traveling to another country and Rachel communicated everything we needed to know which made for such a stress-free planning experience. She also worked with us seamlessly in the middle of our trip when we had some last minute changes so we can enjoy one more day at our Safari.We really can’t wait to come back again — thank you for all the time and work you’ve put in to make our itinerary perfect and fitting for us. We are so thankful to have worked with Rachel & this travel company to plan our trip!

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.
