  • We arrived home safely from our trip to Africa and have to say that we had a wonderful experience.  The whole trip was great but, as you might have been able to predict, the safari at Kapama was certainly the highlight.  It more than lived up to our expectations--we even got to have our morning safari break with giraffes less than 10 feet away on one of the drives.  Not only can I say that I would recommend it, I actually had a chance to do so when we were in Cape Town (we were on a shark cage diving trip with another group and they were trying to do a last minute add on of a few safari days and they were considering Kapama and another location and I was able to chime in and sing the praises of Kapama.)  I know that we asked a lot in trying to arrange a safari for 6 people of varying ages, with only a few weeks notice, during the busy break and at a cost in our budget range and you managed to deliver a MARVELOUS result!  Our trip would not have been the same without your assistance and we can't thank you enough.

  • Thank you also for all the hard work in planning our trip - it was exceptional and we thoroughly enjoyed our time in South Africa. Londolozi was outstanding (as always, I'm sure). We had seven different leopard sightings and were driven around by very knowledgeable rangers. We also enjoyed interacting with the staff there and we've got contact details of people who I am sure we will keep in touch with.

  • We had a great trip, probably one of my best trips ever. And yes, the safari was definitely the best part. I think we saw just about everything except for the elusive leopard. The Royal Madikwe really was nice and the service was great. Our tour guide, Doc, was very knowledgeable. I would recommend the lodge to others. The Commodore Hotel in Cape Town was very pleasant also. I enjoyed the town a lot, too.

  • Lorna was instrumental in planning our trip and ensuring that everything went smoothly. Lorna was so responsive and worked really hard to give us a good range of recommended options. It didn't hurt that the prices were also more reasonable in comparison to other tour operators. We settled on staying at Mateya at Madikwe Private Game Reserve. Lorna gave her assurances that Mateya would provide us with the ultimate luxury safari experience and she was right. We were blown away by the personalised service at Mateya. Everything from the rooms, to the service, the game drives and the food was nothing short of outstanding. It was the trip of a lifetime!

  • Our trip to South Africa was amazing! The entire trip went smoothly with no hiccups. We enjoyed both the Sugar Hotel and Simbavati Hilltop Lodge. Both facilities were as described and were up to my standards. We would definitely recommend your services and the properties we stayed at. We promised the staff at Simbavati that we would try to return next year to see the lions, so we'll need your services again. Thank you again for all of your help, we really enjoyed our time in South Africa!
