Megan and Steve are professional, friendly ,helpful ,listened to our needs and gave excellent advice
5/5

We discovered Discover Africa in October when we first went to the south of Namibia . They organised such a fantastic trip then that we decided to use them again. It also gave us a flexibility that you needs in these covid times if you need to change your bookings due to covid. We chopped and changed our dates a few times but they were always accommodating and fitted in with our requests. Their service and communication is excellent.
Our accommodation ranged from basic ( our choice on 2 occasions) and luxurious.
Discover Africa organised a Toyota Fortuna for us in Windhoek and we drove to Okaukuejo camp inside Etosha for 2 nights ( our choice ) Megan managed to secure us a waterhole premium chalet even though they were very busy. Even though it was basic and very busy because of school holidays , the premium chalets are really worthwhile to stay in for the early morning light and the animal viewing. Thereafter we drove through Etosha to Onguma the Fort which was magical and luxurious. So many opportunities for game viewing at their waterhole and game drives. We would definitely go there again.
Our travels took us north along the Kunene river and then back south again.
Other places we loved staying at were the Kapika falls lodge at Epupa falls and then further south at Camp Kipwe near Twyfelfontein. Camp Kipwe was isolated , loved the desert landscape , the sunsets, the staff , the food, the accommodation, everything. Other highlights were the desert elephant tour and the tour to burnt mountain,organ pipes and Twyfelfontein rock engravings. We would definitely go back there again.
Our last stop outside Windhoek was Omaanda hotel - luxurious , relaxing , beautiful pool , lovely staff and opportunities to do game drives walks etc
We had so many different wonderful experiences which can’t be captured in a short synopsis
Thank you Megan and Steve for making our trip so memorable

Excellent customer service, brilliant tours, exceptional client journey
5/5

What a fantastic choice we made! We are from the uk and decided to book our tour with a local African tour operator rather than someone from the uk who has never visited the place. The trip was booked pre-pandemic, however, all way through lockdown Megan from Discover Africa, contacted us regularly, kept us updated and made sure that as soon as the borders were open that our trip went ahead. We visited SA, Botswana, Namibia & Tanzania. Every transfer was on time, every hotel was excellent and on each safari we saw amazing things - including seeing the big 5 (although not guaranteed!)

Towards the end of the trip SA went on to the "red list" and we couldn't get home, what a relief it was to know that with a quick whatsapp call, Megan was on to it, hotels were booked and a tour of the Garden route sorted during our extended stay. Our favourites were Babylonstoren and Grootbost which allowed us to experience the diversity of South African nature.

The whole trip was an experience of a lifetime, the Serengeti, the Okavango Delta, Etosha, the Ngorongoro crater to name but a few places we visited.

In essence I would highly recommend Discover Africa to anyone wishing to travel there. I will most definitely be using them again. Great work Megan!

Cape Town and Kruger Safari
5/5

Discover Africa was very accommodating in holding the booking until travel restrictions were lifted. The trip itself was better then expected and went very smoothly. I'm glad I split the Kruger safari into two different places. Both places were recommended by Discover Africa and were first rate. Overall a good value, considering the stays at top-end lodging, transfers and R/T flight from Cape Town. Definitely will use Discover Africa again if I get the chance.

Very good price/quality rate. Every detail well organised. Surely we will book in future
5/5

Tour highlight’s Botswana and vitoria falls very well organised, good lodges and flight connections. Wonderful staff everywhere taking care of all our needs and giving us all best of nature.
The very best value/quality
We will surely book other destinations

Don't use anyone else - super service with great communication
5/5

I found Discover Africa via a Google search and sent them an email. within 24 hours I had a reply (due time difference) and then a phone call with Antoinette and we planned the trip. Antoinette was so easy to work with and had the patience to keep changing the itinerary due to the pandemic and flight cancellations and more. She is a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her to anyone looking on planning a trip to Africa.

The tour itself was arranged with Wild Frontiers. We did a 4 night Gorilla trekking trip in Uganda and then a 9 night safari in Tanzania. All the arrangements went exactly to plan and then some. From the moment we arrived at Entebbe Airport with the VIP meet and greet which had been arranged I knew we were in good hands. The VIP meet and assist off the aircraft on arrival is a life saver. With all the requirements to have a covid test on arrival and navigate the airport and the various stages of entry into the country, it simply is a must.

Our flight to Entebbe had been cancelled so we arrived a day earlier than scheduled. Arrangements were made to move the transfer a day earlier and we spent the day at an airport hotel. This had not been planned as we were going to fly direct to Bwindi - however in hindsight it was a blessing. Having the day to recuperate was awesome. A representative of Wild Frontiers, Evelyn, met us at the hotel and went over the itinerary and handed over tickets and gave us lots of tips. She even arranged to have our baggage, which had been delayed, sent to Bwindi when it finally arrived two days later. I could not ask for any better service, they were simply incredible.

On arrival we were met by our guide Echy. What can I say about him other than he was one of the best guides I've had on trips to Africa. Charming, funny, and full of information on what to expect. He is well known in the area and it was delightful to see how everyone greeted him. He made you feel at home and comfortable. Ask for him - you will not be disappointed.

Accommodation and Buhoma Lodge is simply awesome. Right at the start of the gorilla trekking area so close to everything. Food and service are awesome and the accommodations are superb - though there are a lot of steps to the rooms so bear this in mind.

From Bwindi we flew to the Serengeti via Entebbe. This is pretty much a full day affair on charter flights so be prepared. One suggestion I would make is to have a packed lunch sent with you as there is no time at the airports to grab a bit to eat.

Again all arrangements were superb with not hitches whatsoever. On arrival we were met by our guide, George. Again another super person who was full of knowledge. He immediately realized we loved birding and was awesome in spotting them. He was flexible with game drive times and length which was wonderful.

Kiota Camp is a wonderful camp overlooking the open plains of the Serengeti. Lying in your comfortable bed at night listening to the sounds to of the bush is incredible. Again service and food are wonderful and the staff went out of their way to look after us. In the evening after our game drives and we had all showered and freshened up we would head to the dining tent and sit around the camp fire and have a pre-dinner drink and just talk about the day. One night the staff asked us if they could move our chairs for a moment. We were not sure what they were doing but the next thing they had brought our dinner table from the dining tent and put it at the fire so we could have dinner there. It was super night.

One comment I do have on this - when going out for the game drives a packed lunch is provided. These were always put on the floor of the vehicle and sat there for a good number of hours before we stopped for the lunch break. Recommend this be put into a cooler box rather than left in the open heat. There was a cooler box on the vehicle but it was not working so that didn't help.

After 4 nights in the Serengeti we moved to the Ngorongoro Crater area and stayed at the Bougainvillea Safari Lodge. A wonderful place to stay with awesome meals. The food was incredible.

Unfortunately this is when I fell ill with gastroenteritis and severe dehydration and ended up in the hospital! George, our guide, was magnificent at handling all of this and still making sure our friends traveling with us would continue with the safari. They throughly enjoyed their game viewing in the crater and then moved onto Honeyguide Tarangire Camp, which they just raved about. I was sorry to have missed that part of the trip.

We ended the trip at the Africa Tulip Hotel in Arusha. A great hotel to end or start your trip if starting in Arusha. Highly recommended.

I highly recommend both Discover Africa and Wild Frontiers. All arrangements were exceptional and the constant communication through-out the trip made for a well executed safari. Thanks to everyone for all their help and look forward to seeing you on the next adventure.
