I am reborn! Simply the best holiday I have ever been on
Some great stories to tell the grandchildren. Would recommend to a friend
Very enjoyable
It was OK
A bit disappointing really
Cape Town to Victoria Falls small group lodge tour
From
Ä3,170
excluding flights
Remember that this is Africa and everything does not work all the time. Be patient and positive and make friends along the way. (more)Louis Carroll
The most memorable part was driving with Makoros (traditional wood boot) to our wild camping in the Okavango Delta observed by hippos. (more)Sigrid Pach
South Africa safari holiday, 14 days
From
£2,595
excluding flights
Excellent, without question. The entire holiday exceeded our expectations. We saw much more wildlife than we imagined, and we experienced the bush in a direct, personal way. (more)Bruce Marsland
If you are looking for a first class small group safari experience which has the added benefits of a more hands approach to the wild life and conservation, culture, and people of South Africa and all at a reasonable cost, this is the ideal package. (more)Adele Struyck-Ismay
Five stars! It was, as stated, the adventure of a lifetime, which we were expecting, but we did not plan to gain so much more, in the way of making friends and feeling a part of missions that transcended mere tourism. (more)Tania Modleski
Endangered wildlife conservation in South Africa
From
Ä950
excluding flights
It is really hard to decide of many of the memorable and exciting experiences on this holiday which one stands out the most for me. Everyday it seemed that I saw something different in the bush, unexpectedly two male cheetahs appeared one morning, then there was the cheetah with her cub, there were rhinos and rhino babies, one interesting experience for me personally was a close encounter with an Assasin Bug(reduviidae, heteroptera). (more)Cathy Bisset
The most memorable part was all the time we spent in the bush - at least 10h per day. To see the other side of the safari - i.e. not being in a traditional tourist vehicle. (more)Karin van Volen
Amazing!! Words cannot describe this adventure- over 1500 photos taken and a million memories. (more)Emma Clifford
7 day big five safari in South Africa
From
£1,695
excluding flights
Excellent - a truly amazing holiday for all the family! We met some wonderful, dedicated people, learnt an awful lot, saw some incredible wildlife- large and small - and have returned home with some amazing memories. (more)Rachel Gray
This was one of the best holidays we have experienced. The animal sightings were brilliant, the information we received about the bush was exceptional and above all, the friendliness of all the guides and staff and their desire to consider our every need resulted in a truly memorable holiday. (more)kim plumb
Individual highlights are too many to mention but one consistent one was the look on the girls faces when we found something special on a game drive...Fantastic, well organised and great value for money. (more)Neil Wilson
South Africa wildlife reserves conservation expedition
From
£730
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Monitoring and tracking the wild dogs was a most memorable experience. We'd get up early in the morning and sit in the back of an open jeep and roar off to the last sighting. It was winter. It was cold. It didn't matter as it was a big adventure and the not knowing would we find them or not? Waiting and watching for the next time. Really great fun. Tips? For the winter, take lots of warm clothing layers as you can peel off as the weather warms up. Follow the list... (more)Keith Costelloe
Cape Town to Victoria Falls small group camping safari
From
£1,740
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. (more)christina monson
Cycling day tours in Cape Town
From
R950
per half day
Memorable parts? We did the cycling tour of Masiphumelele township and most memorable was our guide, Zwai, who was really knowledgeable with a great sense of humour. Lunch at Nonniís was not only very tasty but also very interesting as she shared her insights and views on life in present day South Africa. All of the people we met were very welcoming and travelling by bike it didnít feel too voyeuristic as it allowed for more interaction. We didnít see any other tourists and I think that,...

South Africa self drive holiday, Northern experience
From
£574
excluding flights
Memorable parts? There were many moments, but if i had to choose it was whilst driving through Kruger Park a group of five elephants crossed the road, we stopped the car and waited for them to pass. The last elephant before crossing altogether raised its trunk at us as a sign of thank you for letting them cross. It was fantastic. Tips? Well you have to be adventurous, there is a lot of driving to do to see the various attractions since some are at quite a distance but the scenery... (more)Anthony Ellul
Ten day wildlife safari, South Africa
From
£1,940
excluding flights
Brilliant from start to finish. (more)Ian Lane
This was an exquisite holiday! (more)Sandy Schuler
Absolutely fantastic! I have been on several safari holidays both self arranged and commercial in the past, but the highly professional, personal, helpful, and friendly service provided by our hosts and their team surpasses anything I had previously experienced. They made us feel like family. (more)Lena Hughes
South Africa and Swaziland safari
From
£1,405
excluding flights
A totally amazing and uplifting experience. A lot of fun, a lot of new things learnt, a new appreciation of another country and it's culture, and new friends made. (more)Cathy McCall
We went to some utterly stunning places, purely magical. The tour leaders couldn't have been better- humorous, brimming with knowledge and stories, fantastic chefs...I could go on (more)Christina Stephenson
Cape Town is truly a wonder of the world and the beaches on the Wild Coast were spectacular...This was one of the best trips I have ever been on. (more)Patricia Ruble
South Africa wildlife & culture holiday
From
£967
excluding flights
Seeing so many wild animals in their natural habitat was probably the best part of this experience and there were many opportunities to do this. We also enjoyed driving ourselves for most of the time so we could go at our own pace, but it was also excellent to have a driver for our day at Kruger. It would be difficult to know how to improve this holiday. (more)Barb Rooke
South Africa was more than we had hoped. So beautiful. Lovely people. Great food. Easy driving. Although we thought we might have given ourselves too much travelling to do it was fine - and felt very relaxed.. (more)cara foord
Research volunteering with leopards in South Africa
From
£600
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The entire trip was memorable: sleeping in a tent and cooking over open fire, seeing the diversity of life on a daily basis, being immersed in the bush, hearing the roaring thunder bounce off the mountain walls, and doing my part for the conservation of the Thabo Thalo nature reserve. However, I think the most impactful part of the trip for me was when Tara and I went to see a local farmer whose goat herd had been attacked. The fact that we were called at all shows... (more)Julia Luxemburger
South Africa safari & Victoria Falls
From
£990
including domestic flights only
Memorable parts? Being looked after by people that really care about the habitat and the wildlife within, who were happy to part their knowledge so that you got the most out of your trip, learning new skills in tracking wildlife and reading the bush and how the weather and time of the day effects all around you. Did enjoy the bush senses test ! Seeing more smaller and nocturnal animals, which were just as interesting as the big 5. Tips? Go with an open mind and you will learn new... (more)steve Harris

Don't concentrate on the big 5. There are plenty of other animals, birds and plant life to see and learn about. (more)Graham Lamb
This was the perfect safari for anyone who wanted to experience a variety within South Africa and didnít have time to set it up! (more)Jenny Sherwood
South Africa walking holiday
From
Ä1,780
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Has to be Kruger National Park game drives but every day offered something exciting. Tips? Be aware that if you are British you may be the only English first language speaker as this company don't seem to sell many holidays to the UK - don't know why as they are great. Local benefits? Yes but it wasn't a main theme Overall rating? Excellent value, great fun,exciting (more)Hilary Cooper
South Africa Scenic Route small group camping safari
From
£1,295
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The animals! We had lots of opportunity to see them up close. Tips? It can be challenging. It is real camping where you have to set up and take down tents. To see the animals and also to cover the great distances that we did (over 3500 km), we had to get up early many mornings. Some days we ate breakfast standing up. Even at the best of times, we sat on small fold up canvass chairs. Some days involved sitting most of the day in a mini bus. The hikes were also often... (more)Lee Farnworth
Camping safari in Southern Africa
From
£1,250
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

From
£2,420

Memorable parts? Seeing hippos up close after travelling by mokoro ( canoe) in Okavango delta Tips? Come with open mind and interest in photography - be prepared to muck in but better than most overland trips in that we had a cook spacious vehicle and tents . Local benefits? Benefited local people when we visited Himba tribe and employed locals as porters and boaters . Overall rating? Very enjoyable and great range of locations (more)wendy taylor
