  • Well you have done it again Lauren! We have just arrived home from the most fantastic trip. I cannot thank you enough for your planning this, especially the Pangolin Wildlife Safari Course. Janelle our tutor was just the best. We had perfect weather all the way with exceptional sightings on every safari. The only downfall was that we should have stayed longer at each camp especially Savute Safari Camp. The staff gave the two of us on our departing evening a special champagne candlelit dinner by ourselves overlooking the waterhole. What a treat. Once again many thanks.

  • Firstly, we are sorry that we couldn't meet you. Actually we went back to the hotel to pick up our luggage around 4:30 and nobody told us you were there! We will always be infinitelly grateful to you! Your advice and support in this trip were fundamental to us. In few words, this trip was wonderful, unique and unforgetable. Only those who have experienced a stay at these mobile camps know the meaning of wonderful people at your service, skies full of stars, wildlife sounds during the night, taking a shower under a full moon, amazing sunrises and sunsets, staff's musical welcomes and farewells, morning coffee with Amarula during the morning game drive, and many other fantastic details and experiences. You are very welcome in Colombia whenever you feel like seeing another special place in the world.

  • In planning my safari, I contacted several companies found on the Internet.  I either didn’t find what I was looking for or the company was not responsive in a timely manner.  I then found Go2Africa.  Lauren Johansson reached out to me promptly and we discussed a couple of packages that interested me on your website.  The package I was interested in initially was not available but the package for Masai Mara, Lake Maynara, Ngorogoro Crater, and Serengeti Under Canvas was.  I really wasn’t interested in this offering though because it was a luxury package and I wanted more of an ‘adventure’ experience. However, Lauren had been on this safari and highly recommended it to me.  I had a FANTASTIC experience and I am grateful that Lauren suggested it as an alternative to the package I wanted.  

     I would like to acknowledge Lauren for the outstanding service she provided throughout the planning of my safari.  She was diligent in doing research as to what Go2Africa offers and prompt in getting back to me, both via email and phone.  She has exceptional communication and presentation skills, and a strong customer service orientation.  Of particular notice is that she consistently demonstrated a genuine desire to assist me in planning my safari.  I attribute this partially to her active listening skills as she was attentive in trying to offer a package that met my objectives of what I was looking for on a safari.

    I would also like to add that there was an issue regarding some charges from andBeyond which  Lauren resolved to my satisfaction.  The initiative she took in resolving the issue demonstrates how she is proactive in providing superior customer service. Because of my experience with Lauren, I will definitely be recommending Go2Africa to my friends as I think, when they hear about my unbelievable adventure, they will be interested in exploring Africa.

  • Our family just got back from Tanzania and thanks to Lauren Johansson of Go2Africa we had the most incredible experience. Lauren was very knowledgable and put together an outstanding itinerary for us. She arranged for local tour operator Tanzania DMC to take us on tours of Tarangire National Park; Lake Manyara; Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti.

    Lauren also picked the most beautiful locations for us to stay at - Maramboi Tented Lodge in Tarangire; Kati Kati Tented Camp in the Serengeti; and the Serena Hotel in Ngorongoro. Best of all was the African Amini Maasai Lodge on Mombella Rd, near Moshi. We are very grateful to her for making such great arrangements for us. Lauren made sure that everything when smoothly, and all we had left to do was enjoy our trip. You can really trust her recommendations, you won't be disappointed.

    Lauren also demonstrated superb professionalism - when we wanted to change one of the activities at the very last minute, she was flexible and incredibly responsive. She will respond to your emails very promptly. We highly recommend using Go2Africa and Lauren Johansson as tour agents.

  • Go2Africa made my first safari the best experience! Ever since I was 8 year old, my dream was to go to Africa and my dream finally came true. It was such a spiritual experience for me to see the various animals (especially the lions) and understand the Maasai Tribe cultures. I felt such a deep connection that I did not want to leave. I plan to do the safari again next year and I highly recommend Go2Africa to anyone that would really love to experience the true spirit and culture of Africa. I guarantee this experience will change anyone's life. It most certainly changed mine. Thanks again, Lauren for making my dream come true. The experience with Go2Africawas beyond my expectations.

Africa is undoubtedly the most magnetic place to visit - the question will always be: when will I return?
