I am reborn! Simply the best holiday I have ever been on

Very enjoyable
It was OK
A bit disappointing really
Garden Route holiday, tailor made, South Africa
From
£1,630
excluding flights
Most memorable was being so close to wild animals on the game drives at Elephant Plains...Fantastic! (more)Yvonne Chapman
The Drakensberg mountains and Didima camp at Cathedral Peak provided a magical start to the holiday, with stunning scenery, fantastic hiking and lovely accommodation; we could easily have stayed much longer there. (more)Barbara Sykes
Some of the best highlights were - the penguins on Boulder Beach, Cape Point on a glorious day, staying with Hazel of Hazel's Homestays, the Real City tour in PE, Amakhala Lodge. (more)David Catherall
Classic South Africa self drive holiday
From
£2,995
including UK flights
Memorable parts? Our trip took in 5 different areas of South Africa and every single part of it was unforgettable. We spent 3 nights in the northern Drakensburg, 3 nights in The Battlefields and 3 nights on safari in Thanda, KwaZulu Natal. Then went on to 3 nights in Cape Town and 2 nights in Hermanus. Every single aspect of the holiday was memorable: the scenery, people, wildlife, food, wine.....I could go on. Tips? The holiday will be planned entirely around your likes and preferences,...

Cape Town to Victoria Falls small group camping safari
From
€2,290
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Every day was a different wonder but the two days wild camping at the Okavanga Delta were really special. Tips? Be prepared for very early starts and not much relaxing times. Local benefits? Yes, local guides were used in a number of locations but obviously driving such long distances is not exactly environmentally friendly. Overall rating? Excellent.

Kruger, coast and cape holiday in Southern Africa
From
£1,380
excluding flights
There are very many wonderful bits to the holiday. I particularly enjoyed my time in Lesotho and the town tour there and the township tour in Oudtshoorn. I was very thrilled by the countryside. (more)Christine Ketchen
Excellent... Kruger was the most memorable part. (more)Helen Wightman
Southern Africa holiday
From
£1,488
excluding flights
I can't wait to return to Africa with these operators. It is a unique and special way to see a country and feel the local vibe. Extensive overland travel gives more than a taste of the local culture and enables one to experience a very different way of life than we are used to in the western world. (more)Honey Bernstein
It was all pretty memorable - for positive reasons! Well organised, excellent guide - and the group of us gelled well. (more)Rachel Balen
Botswana is a fantastic country and we had a brilliant guide who was happy to share his knowledge about the different countries, animals and places we travelled through. (more)Anna Downie

Camping safari in Southern Africa
From
€1,650
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Most memorable moments were the sunset cruise and land safari at Chobe National Park in Botswana. Also camping at Elephant Sands where you can see elephants at a waterhole for hours. Tips? By all means go to southern Africa but do NOT book with this holiday provider. Before I booked I asked about what vehicle would be used on this trip. I was told about their great safari truck but for Game Trails both camping and accommodation trips they only use a minivan. It was... (more)Nancy Wiesenfeld
Cape Town to Victoria Falls holiday in South Africa
From
£2,799
including UK flights
Memorable parts? For me the National Parks were always going to be the highlight and they didn't disappoint. Etosha and Chobe are so different from each other but both have lots of interesting animals. We saw a cheetah family with a fresh kill, several black rhino, more giraffe and elephants than you could ever hope for and a good number of hippos at Chobe too. We also had some very dramatic weather in the shape of two major thunderstorms, made all the more exciting/scary by the fact we... (more)Wendy Pountain
