  • While enjoying one of South Africa's beautiful evenings (and a nice wine) we were trying to work out how many times we have been there.  We figure that since 2002 we have been in South Africa 8 times and that we have had 12 safari experiences.  Most of these have been arranged by you, Tracy.  We discovered early on that local/national travel agents here in Ireland don't understand the product well enough and are mainly interested in selling us an off the shelf package.  One of those was enough for us. What keeps taking us back?  Jacinta and I tell our families and friends that a safari holiday is the ultimate holiday as it combines activity, an exciting game drive, with luxurious accommodation, fine food, exceptional quality of service (and did I mention the nice wine?).

    The attraction of the safari experience for us was being able to see the animals behaving normally in their natural state. The mobile safari provides a really close experience with the animals and great photographic opportunities which Jacinta makes the most of. We 'graduated' from the mobile safari to walking safari a number of years ago. On foot you are much more attuned to the animals environment with the smells of the bush e.g. Wild aniseed.  The walking safari provides a more intimate experience, but a bit more terrifying.

    After our last safari we did not think it was possible to match the experience never mind improve on it, but you did.  We think that this was the best yet. Tracy, we cannot thank you enough for the experiences that you have arranged for us over the years.  What I like about your approach  is that you really listen to what we want and then match the accommodation and experience.  Regardless of the number of times I change our requirements you just get on and sort everything.

    Before going on this trip we were saying that this will probably be our last safari. Usually in life you cannot go back and relive an experience without it being a disappointment.  However, the safari experience just seems to get better and better. Many thanks for sorting out our last minute crisis. Can you be sure to pass on our sincere thanks to everyone who was involved and particularly to the woman who retrieved our passports.  She was so gracious for someone whose Friday night had just been interrupted.

  • Gary and I wanted you to know that once again we had a really fabulous trip to Africa, and despite all the complicated arrangements to have 4 couples coordinate for 2 weeks, it all went off without a hitch.  No crisis, no drama, just implemented as planned.  All the flights were on time, all the transports were waiting for us as planned and were very friendly and professional, so all the coordination on your end was really terrific. We loved both Ras Kutani and the Siwandu safari resort.  We were treated very well in both places. The managers and staff could not have been more friendly or helpful, and the accommodations were lovely and quite comfortable. The beach was great, and the safari outstanding. In short, it was a marvellous and memorable trip of a lifetime for all of us. We are grateful for your help in putting it all together. Thanks again, and Happy New Year!

  • Tracy, our trip was fantastic. Cape Town was very nice as were the safaris. I wasn't sure what to expect but was very pleasantly surprised. Everything was well organized, clean and safe. The people were exceptionally friendly. We've always planned and arranged our own trips but this trip was so well done that I will use a travel planner again.

  • It happened, it really happened! Our stay in South Africa was far beyond our imaginations, and we are having difficulty describing our adventures. We just don't have the words. It was perfect.
    Thank you for arranging this experience. I will recommend you and your agency to anyone who asks, and will call on you again, as I will return!

  • Thank you Tracy! I can’t even put into words what a WONDERFUL trip we had! Every single thing planned by you was flawlessly done - I couldn’t have asked for anything better! The customer service level in each city was amazing. Of course Kruger Park was probably our favorite out of all of them though. The level of service there is like no other I have ever received – from the game drives to breakfast, every detail was thought out and felt tailored to us. Simply amazing! 

    I plan on letting everyone know about Go2Africa that has an interest with our trip and I will also refer them to you! I am so pleased with everything that I wish you guys planned other trips internationally!
