Cape Town to Victoria Falls small group lodge tour
From
US $3,565
excluding flights
There were many memorable moments. Camping in the Okovango Delta was amazing, and the walks around the delta meant that we could get really close to some animals without disturbing them. The sunset cruise on the Chobe River enabled us to see loads of elephants taking baths and they weren't bothered at all by our presence. (more)Tim Gregory
The whole vacation was wonderful especially drive through Namibia with spectacular scenery and its breathtaking landscape. (more)Arvind Sharma

excluding flights
The incredible wildlife viewing opportunities was the highlight. The passion for conservation shown by the guides and the safari camp employees. (more)Laura Johnston
Sitting in an open safari vehicle, surrounded by around 20 elephants, one of which was so close it would have been possible to touch its trunk. Also, having 14 days in which to learn more about the wildlife and ecology of the Kruger area. Opportunity to see the 'Big 5' plus many of the 'Small 5' and the 'Ugly 5'. (more)Dave Sewell
Our first leopard sighting was the most memorable. (more)Peter and Brenda Phillipa

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

Cape Town to Victoria Falls small group camping safari
From
US $2,610
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

Vic Falls to Johannesburg tour, Southern Africa
From
US $1,570
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The elephant by the side of the road in the wildlife corridor when we stopped to use the 'bush toilet'. The driver had not noticed it behind the solitary tree before we got out of the vehicle. I would also say the group of people I was with: the other tourists, and our driver and cook. Camping in the Khama Rhino Sanctuary and the Okavango Delta were amazing because these were the only times we truly were around nature and wildlife when not on a scheduled tour. Tips? There...

Difficult to answer, there were so many, wild dogs in Tangala, elephants round the water hole at Nzimba, lions at a kill, the warm welcome from all the lodges to name but a few. (more)Doug Stockdale
There were so many moments! For stand out viewings we loved spending time watching 2 young male lions on the Ruikiya safari, sitting watching the wild- dog pups playing together while the adults were out hunting at Thornybush, Tangala, and then some wonderful leopard encounters at Klaserie thanks to the amazing tracker and guide at Nzumba. (more)Richard Claydon

Every single aspect of the vacation was memorable: the scenery, people, wildlife, food, wine.....I could go on. Tips? The vacation will be planned entirely around your likes and preferences,... (more)Philippa Roll
Shark conservation in South Africa
From
£1,297
excluding flights
Memorable parts? My last cage dive. We had one large female shark who did a slow pass right next to the cage. You could see her blue eye moving and focusing as she had a good look at what was going on inside our cage. Tips? I would recommend adding a few extra days on either side of the project so that you can explore Cape Town and do any additional activities that you haven't yet had the chance to fit in. The longer you are there, the longer your "to do" list will get. Local... (more)Annabel Marriott

From
US $2,550

Memorable parts? The whole experience on this African adventure was fantastic and exceeded our expectations - from the numerous animals, to the ever changing landscape and cultures of each of the countries visited - each day was a highlight! We loved the walking safaris looking for (and finding) White Rhino's, the open air driving safaris, the wilderness of the Okavango wild camping and mokoro trip with hippos. We really enjoyed the Great Zimbabwe Monuments and the views from World's View... (more)Nettie Powell
Southern Africa budget vacation
From
US $1,190

It was all truly wonderful. I was most worried about creature comforts during the primitive stay in the Delta but it was great - no hardship whatsoever. I could never begin to capture how incredible the wildlife viewing is - and it just keeps coming! (more)Janet Stewart
So many fantastic memories. One of the best we have ever been on. (more)John Munroe
Southern Africa vacation
From
US $2,665
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

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

It was amazing to be so close to animals like elephants, lions, leopards, buffalo, cheetah ... (more)Irene Hanson
There is a watering hole directly in front of the main lodge and most days we sat on our sun loungers and watched impala, zebra and even elephants wander in for a drink which was amazing. In this reserve they use inter-lodge radio communications in the game vehicles to alert everyone to good sightings. This means you will see more of other vehicles and people but it also means you will get to see more and the best possible wildlife sightings. (more)Kerry McCranor

South Africa safari & Victoria Falls
From
£780
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
Vacation in South Africa, Madikwe and Waterberg
From
£2,900
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Most exciting - seeing lions, leopard and African wild dogs eating, sleeping or playing from only a few feet away. Most memorable - visit to Soweto. Tips? We did a late booking, but I would recommend booking early to ensure you visit the reserves you really want. Local benefits? All centres were very conservation minded. Benefit to local people harder to assess in South Africa. Tips? We had a really great vacation. (more)Jackie Hunt

From

Seeing leopards for the first time after many trips to 'leopard countries', being 2/3 metres on foot from a white rhino, being 4/5 metres on foot from a cheetah on a kill, a great group dynamic, great tour leader and assistants, friendly local people, great walking opportunities....so much! Tips? In future the camping element of this trip is being dropped. Pack as lightly as you can (frequent laundry opps) but be aware of big temperature swings, we experience forty... (more)Alan Thomas

Awesome! I would wholeheartedly recommend the wild camping aspect of this trip as an amazing extra dimension to the experience over a lodge or fenced campsite. (more)Pamela Young
Camping safari in Southern Africa
From
US $1,880
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 vacation 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
Vervet monkey rehabilitation project in Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa
From
£895
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Without doubt the safari we went on to the Addo & Scotia parks but spending time playing with Serval Cats whilst volunteering at the African Dawn Wildlife Project was a close second. Tips? If you are volunteering - you might be a bit overwhelmed when you first arrive - give it a couple of days and you will love it. Local benefits? I hope that our small contribution in volunteering did help with the welfare of the birds and animals they keep, places like... (more)Beth Sanders
