karen & peter - Victoria Falls & botswana - october 2023
The trip you organised for us was amazing! Thank you for making it so seamless. Ilala Lodge Hotel in Victoria Falls was outstanding. Our room was beautiful, with a view to the clouds of water caused by the Falls. The air conditioning was great and the restaurant/pool area was lovely too. A la Carte menu was great, and the staff were friendly, welcoming and made us feel at home. We had a drink at the iconic Vic Falls Hotel which was only a 10-minute walk from our Lodge. The transfers and charter flights we so well organised and we had a specific person that looked after all our transfers from picking up our bags to taking us to the airstrip. Chobe Lodge was 5 stars! At Savute Lodge we watched the lions and elephants from our balcony and from the restaurant. Just amazing! The singing and dancing by the locals was so much fun during dinner. The boat safaris were amazing, as was the walking safaris. Being so close to the wildlife exceeded our expectations. At Camp Moremi an elephant walked past our balcony, stopped and ate for a while. We could watch the baboons from our room too. Highly recommended!
Gen & Manish - Victoria Falls & self drive botswana & Namibia - october 2023
It has been absolutely amazing. Thank you so much for all the effort that went in to planning it for us. Everything went very smoothly and we have already recommended Travel Africa to some friends who are planning their trip 🙂 We thoroughly enjoyed the trip and can't wait to come back! Thank you again for your organisation, responsiveness and flexibility.
peter & friends - johannesburg, Cape Town, winelands & kruger - october 2023
We had a wonderful trip and my Aussie friends got a full taste of the special place South Africa is. This is just a quick note to thank you for pulling it all together – everything went like clockwork and through this it just made the whole experience more special for us all. Thank you for your work in enabling this - it is much appreciated!
It was a great trip. Holiday was very well organised - in fact one campsite commented that Travel Africa Your Way was one of their favourites to deal with. We are glad we used your company and would happily recommend you.Flis & mike - self drive Namibia - september 2023
marianne & paul - Cape Town, the winelands, chobe, Victoria Falls & Kruger - september 2023Our trip was a bucket list big birthday trip that had been delayed by Covid. I had done a lot of research, but wanted the help of an expert travel agent to reassure my husband it was safe to visit Africa. We wanted all transfers taken care off and the best itinerary to cover Cape Town, Vic Falls, and Kruger on a mid range budget. Chris had some great advice, and suggested we add on 3 days to Botswana/Zambezi River to do a couple of days safari there, before the private game reserve at Kruger. It was great to do both a private and National park safaris, with nice accomodation arranged by Chris and everything taken care of. The itinerary was arranged in such a way that worked so well and built up the excitement of our safaris. We saw the big 5 and made lifetime memories.We went with another couple and felt like we were on a private tour customised just for us … which is how it was! Chris is responsive and quick to act if any help needed, and we would all recommend Travel Africa You Way. You won't be disappointed!
We have returned home safe and sound after an exceptional trip to stunning southern Africa. All arrangements went off without a single hitch. The choices you made for us were fantastic! Trip of a lifetime - so many stories to tell and sightings to list from this wonderful trip, thank you for your services. Our sighting of the lion attacking a hyena [at Arathusa Safari Lodge in Kruger] has been picked up by the lodge - click here for the amazing story and video.Margot & Maddie - The Okavango Delta, Savuti, Chobe, Victoria Falls & Kruger - August 2023
Tania & Brian - Victoria Falls, Chobe, Kruger & the Cape Winelands - July 2023Wow – what a trip!!! Brian and I cannot stop raving about it (especially Kruger). The experience exceeded our wildest expectations, and everything was arrange perfectly… thank you doesn’t seem like enough! It truly made a difference knowing everything had been thought of and all we had to do was enjoy the trip. Just a heads-up, we're already daydreaming about going back for more safaris. The thrill of safaris… we're totally hooked on.
We cannot thank Chris and Sandie enough for the trip they organised for us recently to Zimbabwe, Botswana and South Africa. Everything they organised went really smoothly, and we saw some incredible sights, experiences beyond our expectations. The accommodation and hospitality were wonderful, and we really appreciated their willingness to listen, and their advice for slightly nervous first-time visitors to the African continent. We hope to have the opportunity to go back to Africa, and if we do, we will certainly be making a call to Chris and Sandie our first step towards it.Chris & Murray - Victoria Falls, Chobe & the Okavango Delta - July 2023
Chris organised us a tour through a few countries in Southern Africa - his experience and detailed knowledge of all destinations and travel options was invaluable. Our trip corresponded very well with what it was we wanted to do, see and experience. It met our budgetary requirements also. Prior to travelling. I had very limited knowledge of various destinations and options. Chris is a clear communicator and well organised. I think he can organise a wide variety of different trips depending on what customers want. Highly recommended. We had a great time.David & family - Kruger, Victoria Falls & Botswana - June 2023
Leah & family - Kruger, Victoria Falls, botswana mobile safari & kruger - June 2023The trip was truly amazing - thankyou so so much for all the work you did. Everything went seamlessly!! Every flight was booked and on time, every transfer arrived on time, it was amazing! Thankyou again, I have already recommended you to others.
Had a wonderful trip to Malawi and South Luangwa in Zambia with my adult children organized by Chris at travel Africa. Chris always responded quickly, was helpful and approachable. Would recommend Chris and Travel Africa. Malawi and Luangwa are great places to visit.ken & family - self-drive malawi & zambia - june 2023
Chris and Sandie were the best throughout the whole process, giving professional advice and quick communication with no issues. Very quick in booking and confirming the trip. Would highly recommend contacting Chris and Sandie, to make memories that last a life time.Rhys & Family - Pilanesberg - June 2023
We have just returned from an incredible adventure starting in Victoria Falls then driving a rented 4WD for a week through Botswana from Kasane to Maun, and then flying to Selinda Reserve for a three night stay, followed by five nights in Cape Town. Our vehicle rental, accommodation and other detailed arrangements were all organised by Travel Africa and everything went according to plan. The assistance Travel Africa gave us in the planning of this trip was superb. We have no hesitation in recommending them to any future traveller. The trip was a really unforgettable experience.ken & Maria - Victoria Falls, self-drive Botswana & Cape Town - may 2023
All the bookings worked perfectly thank you. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves - the entire trip was fabulous! Can't recommend Namibia highly enough to others. Everything ran like clockwork and all of your bookings etc were impeccable. Thankyou !Andrew, Helen, Sue & Martin - Self-drive Namibia - may 2023
We had an absolutely fabulous time and loved every minute of our trip! Everything was organized so well and went really smoothly and the accommodation was all excellent and even better than we expected. We had some incredible wildlife sightings and couldn’t believe how close we got to the animals, including many lions, leopards and even a cheetah. The guides were really lovely and very knowledgeable. We learned so much from them and loved all of the activities organized by you as well as at the places that we stayed. We were both ready to go back even before we left and are already thinking of our next trip to Africa. Thanks again for organizing such a great trip.Tanya & Frank - Self-drive Namibia, Botswana, Victoria Falls & Kruger - may 2023
Shelley & Family - Botswana & Victoria Falls - may 2023Just a short note of thanks for a wonderful trip to Zimbabwe and Botswana. All 4 lodges, from Victoria Falls to Chobe and then onto the Okavango, were excellent and perfect for our family. All the transfers worked seamlessly – transfers across the border and immigration from Zimbabwe to Botswana to lodge transfers with Wilderness Air that were more like a scenic flight than a transfer. Information provided prior to the trip was really useful, especially for my husband who likes to know exactly what was happening, and this meant that airports and visas etc all went smoothly. I guess all your hard work meant we really sat back and had the safari of a lifetime! Thanks again.
Thank you for organizing our amazing holiday, I can see why you love Africa. Kruger was absolutely wonderful. I have now been spoiled by glamping. Our guide Dirk was brilliant. Couldn’t have asked for more. Except a cheetah. But we saw so so much and Dirk couldn’t have tried harder to help us see one. An amazing trip that the whole family will never forget.trudy, Tim & family - Kruger, Victoria Falls & chobe - april 2023
Abi - Victoria Falls - April 2023I just wanted to say thank you so much for organising such a amazing trip for me to Victoria falls. It was completely stress free and everything went so smoothly. My tour guide around the falls was absolutely lovely and I absolutely loved it. I am so happy I went for the helicopter ride too as it was absolutely incredible! Thank you once again for organising a trip I will never forget!
karen & adrian - Kruger, Victoria Falls & the Okavango Delta - march 2023I just wanted to extend warm thanks to you for arranging our recent travel to South Africa, Zimbabwe and Botswana. Every part of the arrangements made went without a hitch and the travel companies could not have looked after us any better!! The trip was amazing and the locations that we visited and then places that we stayed were perfect. I will certainly be recommending you to any friends or family looking to travel to the region.
Joanne & family - Victoria Falls - march 2023
We have just returned to Aus and had a great time, thank you. We loved Vic Falls and the accommodation you organised at Pioneers Lodge was exactly what we needed. It was such a lovely relaxing place to come to after a busy day out. And the staff were AMAZING. Nothing was ever too difficult and the service was incredible. We loved the cruise as well, thank you. You managed to get us onto what seemed to be the best boat on the river 🙂 Had an amazing time. The cancellation of the white water rafting was disappointing. We managed to fit in a night and bush dinner game drive instead which turned out to be another highlight.. We saw so much game and the bush dinner was spectacular. So all in all a wonderful trip and I cannot thank you enough 🙂
Joanie & Jeanette - Kruger - march 2023Please allow me to share a massive thank you to you both for all your work for our wonderful trip back to SA. The car hire was perfect thank you. The Kruger and Umkumbe was nothing short of spectacular and between both we saw everything bar cheetah which was really lucky. We had super weather, and all accommodation was fabulous especially gorgeous Umkumbe. Everything was truly wonderful and we genuinely wish to pass on heartfelt thanks for everything.
Steve & Tessa - Cape Town, Botswana & Victoria Falls - march 2023Chris at Travel Africa booked our trip to SA, Okavango, Chobe and Vic Falls. Thank you. The trip was perfect, the accommodation superb, the travel arrangements and details all meticulously planned and completed. Our holiday was pure magic due to Chris’s knowledge, hard work and special care to make sure we received more than we expected. 5 stars plus for Travel Africa.
raj - Cape Town, Kruger, victoria falls & chobe - February 2023
I just got back from a two week trip to Southern Africa and it was a memorable trip. Travel Africa came up with an agenda to see all the important places and Chris organised the whole tour with all the arrangements taken care of. Chris has got a great eye for details and included all my wish lists in putting together this tour. During the tour everything worked like clock work, and it allowed me to enjoy the whole trip with all the safaris and sight seeing. Thank you Chris and I would highly recommend Travel Africa.
Emily & Navid - self-drive Zimbabwe, Botswana & namibia - January 2023Now that we are back at home after our 3 month adventure, we wanted to sit down and write you a proper thank you. Our 25 nights on self-drive safari was the major highlight of our whole Africa and Europe experience. We had never done any 4x4ing, nor been to those countries before, so we put ourselves in your hands and you delivered! We were consistently impressed with the smooth logistics and excellent choice of accommodations. You even took care to select us prime individual campsites (or tents) within each property where relevant. The itinerary document you provided was very helpful - in fact we found the written directions easier to follow than Tracks4Africa and more reliable than google maps. The suggestions on what to do in each place were also a great starting point. Having not been to the region before, the choices for what to do and where to stay were a bit overwhelming, but the itinerary you put together for us was a perfect balance between wildlife and culture, parks and towns, remote and luxurious. We can't wait for the next time and will heartily recommend your services to whoever asks! Once again, a big thank you for making our dream trip of a lifetime come true!
donna & family - Cape Town, Victoria Falls, chobe & Kruger - January 2023
The holiday was fantastic! We were very happy with the itinerary and everything went like clockwork. We would definitely recommend you to people planning a trip to southern Africa.
mark - Kruger & Cape Town - January 2023
I really enjoyed the trip and the coordination you provided. Kambaku Lodge was excellent, great service, people and lots of animals, I highly recommend them for any of your future clients. Rhino Walks was just as good, a remote area, small group and a nice location. The walks were pretty cool, although the highlight from was the camp, quiet, no crowds and relaxing, Thanks a lot for organising the trip.
Karen & family - Botswana Self-drive - January 2023
Thank you so much for organising this wonderful trip for us! We had such a fantastic time! Here’s a summary: Jhb-Kasane flight. Picked up 4x4 at airport, food shopping for next 6 days, booked into accommodation at “The Old House” on the Chobe River. Dinner, bed and breakfast! From tomorrow we have to be self-sufficient... Planet Baobab, Gwetha. Heavy rain, great camping spot with under cover area ! Central Kalahari Game Reserve - Sunday Pan. No people, lots of animals. Bliss!! Flat tyre and only one spare... New spare tyre picked up in Maun. And stocked up on food and water before we left for Khwai, Savuti and Chobe... Khwai Community Concession (Moremi). Channels too high for river crossings. Lots of Zebra (incl. newly born), Impala, Letchwe, Elephant, Hippo and birds. Wattled Cranes were a highlight! Only heard the lions roaring.... And we got stuck in the mud. Savuti. Very sandy roads, lots and lots of elephants!! First leopard, wild dogs and bat-eared fox for this trip! Beautiful scenery, baobabs, amazing cloud formations and a spectacular thunderstorm! Ihaha campsite, Chobe River Front. Densest population of game... Botswana trip ended on a high! Huge herds of elephant, buffalo, impala, zebra and the predators that prey on them... Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. Spectacular place to finish our amazing holiday! White water rafting definitely recommended!!!
sharon & paul - Victoria Falls - January 2023
We have just returned from an amazing trip to Vic Falls. Travel Africa arranged all the activities, accommodation and transfers which were seamless and perfect. We loved everything about our trip. Thanks Chris.
Michel - self-drive Cape Town & the garden route - November 2022Well... short version... WOW! Did the Garden Route. Kudos for the choice of hotels and the itinerary. All went according to plan, great country to visit. Mind blowing scenery, great food, great people all the way (am I using "great" too often?) Ticked a bucket list item nearly on everyday of the trip. Thanks again for organizing, it was really great!
Jeanene & jean-claude - Cape Town & self-drive Namibia, Botswana & Victoria Falls - september 2022
John and I cannot thank you enough for what you organised for us, from start to finish it was perfect in every way. Car hire, lodges and your very detailed itinerary were fantastic. We loved the freedom of having our own car, stopping along the way to each new destination. Everyday had a wow moment, drives never felt long with the scenery changing, locals always happy to wave and smile, wildlife along the roadside, giving way to the occasional animal crossing. We were lucky to see the big 5 along with so many other animal sightings, one waterhole in Etosha was like a scene out of the lion king with over 1000 animals of different species except for the cats, we spent an hour sitting there in awe of what we were experiencing. 2 sightings of leopard in Chobe, Soussevlei was incredible, climbing Dune 45 and Deadvlei is something that needs to be seen, photos do not do it justice. We feel very privileged to have been able to see 6 rhinos at a waterhole at our accommodation along with elephants and giraffes. The Okavango was an unbelievable experience, our second night we had 12-15 hippos walk very close past our campsite and with a full moon it made for an incredible sighting. The flight over the Okavango is a must and we loved seeing it from the air as it gives you very different perspective on what we had experienced from the ground. From Cape Town to Namibia then Botswana and Victoria Falls and finishing in Soweto (Lebos Backpackers was just brilliant as was the 4 hour tour) was everything we hoped for plus so much more. Africa has a way of getting under your skin and just makes you want to see more. We will be talking about this trip forever and telling our family and friends if they have thought of Africa as a holiday to just book it and book it with you of course and go. From helicopter flights over Victoria Falls and the Okavango, to all the animal sightings, culture, accommodation, doing Devils Pool at Victoria Falls, navigating some interesting roads the list is endless. John and I feel thank you is just not enough. It was the most incredible adventure and definitely worth the wait.
Jody & jasmine - Botswana (central kalahari game reserve & mobile safari) & Victoria Falls - september 2022
Our trip was fantastic, thank you for planning it all for us. In the Central Kalahari Game Reserve we had a large male lion the first night 150m outside the lodge, we were having the Boma dinner off-site so all jumped into the truck with our drinks and raced over to see it. Something you could really only do in a private reserve. We heard it roar every night - pretty exciting. We also saw it up close one morning, since we could go off-road, and have fantastic pics. The bushman walk was very interesting as well. On the mobile safari, the guide (Shabba) and cook (Chicco) were awesome. Over the week, we saw 33 lions and 6 leopard. I finally got to hear a leopard call one morning close to our camp and we saw a pack of 5 wild dog hunting. There were a lot of baby animals around as well. Thanks again for recommending the lodge and mobile safari - it really was a perfect trip.
Jordan - Kruger, Victoria Falls & chobe - september 2022
Thank you so much for a trip of a lifetime! We had the BEST time and all your bookings went off without a hitch. We loved each of our locations. Rhino Post Safari Lodge was definitely a highlight! We got to see an entire pack of wild dogs in Kruger, including ~20 babies! It was quite the sight. Devil's Pool we would HIGHLY recommend as a must-do in Vic Falls. Bakwena Lodge was a wonderful oasis just outside the park. Our game driver Alec at Bakwena was the BEST!!!! He was so knowledgeable and managed to find ALL the big game (including a leopard that had just taken down an impala and had pulled it into a tree) and a lion pride that had taken down a cape buffalo overnight and were feasting on their kill. The food was very fresh and light (and healthy) which we enjoyed. We loved learning about the local village. All our drives/transfers were excellent with the drivers on time and ready for our arrival. We LOVED the Sunset Cruise on Zambezi. We managed to see all the Big 5 (all but rhinos at Kruger), and then rhinos at the Livingstone game drive in Vic Falls (Zimbabwe side). We LOVED the herds of elephants, cape buffalo, zebra and hippos at Chobe. Being on the water was a nice change and allowed for different wildlife (like the large groups of hippos and HUGE crocs). All our drives/transfers were excellent with the drivers on time and ready for our arrival. It was truly a once in a lifetime trip and I can't thank you enough for all the work you did to make it (finally) happen!
Cheryl & Quentin - Kruger, Victoria Falls, self-drive Botswana & Cape Town - september 2022
We had an amazing time, thank you. Everything you organised went really well and instructions were spot on. We used them for all our journeys. All of our flights went well. All of our pick ups and transfers were great. We can't thank you enough for all of your assistance in preparing our holiday. It was a great time away. We are already thinking of where to go for our next one, too many options.
vilheta & elzanne - Botswana mobile safari & Victoria Falls - august 2022
Just want to thank and congratulate you on a very enjoyable trip! We had a great time – especially because it was very well organised – thanks to you. It was a wonderful experience!!
Kristine - South Africa Garden Route & Kruger - may 2022
I spent the month of May in Namibia & South Africa. I was travelling solo and couldn’t find a suitable guided tour so I turned to Chris at Travel Africa and he came up with a splendid itinerary for me. We messaged and emailed and talked on the phone and we met up twice in person to arrive at the final itinerary. He couldn’t have been more helpful and responsive to all my queries and concerns. Everything went according to plan and I had the most fantastic trip. All the places I stayed were even better than I expected. I would definitely use Travel Africa for future travel in Africa.
