The most seamless and incredible experience in turbulent times!
5/5

After starting this booking process pre-covid in 2019 we FINALLY got our dream honeymoon and it was totally worth the wait!! Chris and his team successfully assisted, guided and navigated us through the most uncertain and turbulent travel planning times right up until the day before we left! From the first conversation with Chris where he provided extensive knowledge, insight and advice we knew we would be in good hands and did not hesitate to start the booking process. Although our itinerary changed multiples times through the 2+ planning years the finally itinerary was still just as incredible as the first one we had to make sacrifices on. Our itinerary was narrowed down to just visiting Kenya and we spent 1 day in Nairobi, 4 days at the Elephant Bedroom Camp in Samburu and 5 days at andBeyond Kichwa Tembo.

We could use every word that positively describes an experience like wonderful, outstanding, amazing, incredible, ect. and it still wouldn't do our first trip to Africa justice. We aren't lying when we say that we had zero issues or negative experiences throughout the whole planning and travel process, everything was absolutely seamless. In fact, we felt guilty talking about how wonderful our experience was compared to the honeymooning couple from the UK we were paired with that also used a travel agent for the first time and had nothing short of a nightmare experience.

It was our first trip to Africa and it most certainly won’t be our last nor will this be our last trip we book with The Safari Partners. Huge shout out to Chris and his team for making our dreams come true!!!

Everything went seamlessly, even the Covid tests
5/5

My husband and I just came back from a month in southern Africa that included four countries, South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Botswana Okavango Delta. Our consultant Chris Ronneseth of The Safari Partners was extremely helpful in planning this fairly complicated itinerary that included 9 internal flights and four Covid tests. Everything happened as planned with no major glitches. I am here to tell you that I felt safer in Africa with regard to Covid than I do in my own home state of New Jersey. Covid is taken seriously in all the countries we visited, with daily temperature checks of all personnel and travelers, mask mandates indoors and outdoors in a group, and sanitizers provided and required at the entrance of all stores. Many of the people who interacted with us had been vaccinated and some were eagerly awaiting their vaccines. Everyone took precautions as required by the laws of their countries. We felt very protected on this trip. The lodges and hotels were amazing as well!

Perfect in all respects
5/5

We travelled to South Africa and Botswana in October 2021 and Safari Partners did an excellent job setting up all our accommodations, flights and COVID 19 tests. Every step worked out perfectly and Chris was exceptionally helpful answering questions, making suggestions and accommodating changes. Traveling now is a bit challenging due to COVID rules but Safari Partners was up to the challenge and did a great job. We had an amazing trip and we were well looked after every step of the way. Looking forward to working with Chris on our next African adventure!

Outstanding
5/5

Absolutely love this tour operator. Chris has a detailed knowledge of African Safari destinations. He also reassured us that we could travel and enjoy during COVID. He was right, we had an amazing time! Prior to travelling, Chris fine tuned our itinerary to ensure we could get all the requisite testing done in a way that didn't interfere with our enjoyment of the trip. A lot has to do with the really wonderful hotels he booked along the way. If you are wondering whether you can enjoy yourself during COVID, it definitely is possible and worth it. It was actually nice having the crowds cut down a bit. We felt safe the entire trip. The local guides the team booked were top notch and very experienced. I think having experienced guides is one of the most important parts of a successful African Safari vacation. Why? Because they know the routes, they have relationships with other guides to ensure you see the Big 5 and many other animals. Chris can also book trips to Uganda for the Gorilla trek, highly recommended, perhaps the highlight of our trip. I won't hesitate to book with Chris and his team again for our next adventure to Africa.

Amazing Tanzania Safari and introduction to Africa
5/5

Just read all of the other reviews! Not much more to add. Look no further than these guys!
In the planning stages I communicated with several operators. After a couple of emails with Chris, the choice was obvious!
Every detail from beginning to end was meticulously detailed and very informative. Every question I had before and during the trip was answered immediately. They really made my first trip to Africa easy and I felt comfortable the entire time.
The Air and ground transfers were seamless and the accommodations , guides, and other staff were top notch!
The price was also very reasonable!
Also want to mention that the Tanzania Covid-19 restrictions changed just before I left which was a bit unsettling . Chris and Jen made sure I had everything I needed and arranged all testing and paperwork before I left which really helped when I arrived and left Tanzania
Will definitely use the Safari Partners on my next trip to Africa!
