Cape Town, Kruger & Livingstone

This first-time-to-Southern-Africa couple loved the itinerary that Liesl put together for them. A Cape Town, Kruger & Vic Falls combo really does highlight some of the best we have to offer in a seamless, time efficient way. They travelled in November and even though they were forewarned, were disappointed by the low water season at Victoria Falls. Nevertheless, they enjoyed the wide variety of adventure activities.

Accolades for Grootbos Nature Reserve

This couple who Liesl met at the New York Travel Show did an incredible South Africa trip which included staying at these 5 star lodgings - The Saxon Hotel, Jamala Madikwe Safari Lodge, Camp Jabulani, Londolozi Pioneer Camp One & Only Cape Town, Grootbos Forest Lodge and Le Quartier Francais.

Comparing hotels and experiences in Rwanda & Uganda

An experienced traveler who understands how valuable feedback is to us tour operators (especially from remote corners of the African rain forests!), wrote this comparative account of her gorilla trekking trip to Rwanda and Uganda.

Honeymooners rave about andBeyond in East Africa

This honeymoon couple loved their fly-in Safari & Beach circuit in Kenya and Tanzania. Liesl worked closely with andBeyond, one of our preferred suppliers, for most of the routing and everything worked like clockwork.

A safari at Lion Sands – the jewel in the crown

These New York clients had an amazing trip. With a nice budget, Liesl was able to include all her favourite places in their itinerary - More Quarters in Cape Town, Le Quartier Français and River Manor in the Winelands and Ivory Lodge for their safari. With their layover in Johannesburg, they also had a very interesting city tour.

Kenya and Gorilla Trekking (for the 3rd time!)

This lovely past client returned to Africa with friends this time. They went on safari in Kenya's Masai Mara and then travelled to Rwanda to go gorilla trekking. What a privilege to be able to say that you've been to see the gorillas three times!

East Africa safari circuit to Kenya & Tanzania

Wildlife, wildlife and more wildlife! This is what these clients from Panama wanted out of their East Africa Safari. They travelled in June and in general had fantastic animal encounters accompanied by super guide, Solomon as they traversed the savannah taking in famous sites like the Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti.

3 week family vacation on safari in Southern Africa and never a dull moment!

This family were particularly impressed with the logistics of their long and complex African safari. They started with an urban safari in Cape Town and then went into the heart of the Okavango Delta followed by the Savuti region in Botswana. They caught their breath at the Victoria Falls before journeying into remote Zambia for an unforgettable safari in the South Luangwa and the Lower Zambezi.

Purist safari to the Lower Zambezi, the Sabi Sands, Savuti & Etosha

These clients wanted an intensive safari that included a selection of the prime wilderness regions in Southern Africa. They had fantastic wildlife sightings in the very diverse ecosystems of Zambia's Lower Zambezi, South Africa's Sabi Sands, Botswana's Savuti and Okavango Delta as well as Nambia's Etosha National Park.

Family safari to Zambia

Two families, two diverse African countries - lots of fun with a wide variety of expereinces! They started in buzzy, cosmopolitan Cape Town then journeyed into the remote wilderness of Zambia's Lower Zambezi before ending their trip at Victoria Falls.
