  • Madelein thank for the most amazing trip! We had such a fantastic time in South Africa everything went like clockwork, all of your arrangements were perfect, and I think we spent the right amount of time everywhere and got to see everything we wanted to see, thanks to your efforts.

  • Wanted to send you a great big thank you for all your assistance in planning our safari! We had a fabulous time, both the camps and the game viewing exceeded everyone’s expectations. Elke, Shawn and the rest of the staff at Machaba Camp were really terrific, as were Justine, Ross and our guide, Piet, at Selinda Explorers. In terms of game viewing, I really couldn’t have asked for more! Totally spectacular. We spent quality time with lionesses and their cubs, and experienced four leopard sightings! Truly amazing! Not to mention all the other usual suspects, like elephants, hippos, impala, zebra, baboons, wildebeest, kudu, reed buck, etc. What stood out for me was how relaxed the animals were around the vehicles. We had both lions and leopards practically brush the bumper of our jeep! Needless to say, I can’t wait to go back. The experience fed my soul. Truly. I get emotional thinking about it. Thank you again for everything. We will unreservedly recommend Go2Africa to all our friends and family.

  • Zambia - still gorgeous, still friendly, still so much to explore! Royal Livingstone is really cool, what a beautiful place and I loved the fact that you just walk down to the Falls - well we did that years back from the other side as well, but still. Beautiful hotel, lovely bar and outside area, cool sunset bar as well. We loved Sausage Tree as well, wonderful staff there, guide Ryan (you guessed SA!), host couple, butler all staff wonderful. Beautiful place, we got the bridal suite with our own dip pool - couldn't sleep because an elephant wanted to eat right outside in the middle of the night, so got up and sat watching him for a while. The food was great, drinks, bar, fridge all up in top. Beautiful scenery with lunch on a little island, loved the boat rides and also the game drives - Zambia is beyond beautiful.

  • Mozambique, what a gem, I am really glad we finally made our way up there... It was the most perfect spot, we were there very early in the season so the sea (regarding snorkelling) and flying in a bit rough but how beautiful it was. As you probably know we were the only ones there, a bit weird, but we were completely spoiled, loved the team - well you know with me a few South Africans thrown in always brightens my day, the Mozambicans are so friendly as well, just gorgeous. We could choose ourselves what we wanted to eat and where so every night was very special. The houses are wonderful, great aircon, loved the filled fridge, decor, oh and the outside area with our little pool! We enjoyed the beach, sea, snorkelling and diving, relaxing and eating - perfect spot for celebrating anniversaries, well unless people don't like each other anymore, hehe! We both agreed that it was just perfect, it's up there in beauty with Bora Bora, the sea here is just stunning, the change of colours throughout the day you never tire of, more of Mozambique for us for sure!

  • Thank you so much for organising our trip Madelein, we had an amazing time and loved it! Kwandwe was fantastic and very special, thank you for chosing that game park. Would highly recommend it to anyone. We had a wonderful ranger and 'front man' who were so knowledgable and found us all the Big 5, including a leopard, which was awesome.. and many other animals too. I think we were lucky (the animals not so much so) that there had been such a drought because the grass was very sparse and we could see lots more easily. I do hope they have had some rain now as they were all very worried. St Francis Bay was fun but unfortunately we had a lot of rain. Met up with friends which was good though and played golf with them (some in the rain was not so good!). We stayed one night at Emily Moon in Plett and it was very special place - such a fantastic location and very querky! Loved the area as so beautiful - bit cold to go swimming though! Our drive along the Garden Root from Fancourt to Cape Town was fantastic, we loved the scenery and finished off driving along Chapman's Peak Drive round the coast to Cape Town - stunning! Loved our final nights in Steinberg and of course Cape Grace with that wonderful view. All in all it was great fun and thank you so much for your organisation.

People will always have a yearning for Africa, the huge spaces, the wildlife, its pristine environments - it affirms that life is not always about materialism. And there's nothing I like more than when my customers share the same sentiments.
