Giltedge Africa is an award-winning, luxury inbound tour operator with an in-depth knowledge of Southern Africa, East Africa, and the Indian Ocean islands. We create tailor-made itineraries to the best safari destinations in Africa.
They carefully plan and execute an amazing trip for all needs.
We were very pleased with the company and especially with the staff that we had direct contact with. The itinerary that Lisa put together for us as well as the hotels and special touches, like a quieter hotel away from the aircraft flight route, made our African safari and vacation a wonderful and memorable experience. We appreciated her attention to detail and quick replies across the 5 hour time difference. Our guides were all top notch, well informed and very pleasant to be around. After 2 missed flights in transit to Cape Town our first guide, Noel, suggested moving our half day morning tour to the afternoon to give us time to rest and the opportunity to shop because our suitcases were delayed for 24 hours. He was eager to show us his city and we delighted in the unique spots that he took us to for morning coffee and lunch. We also followed his recommendations for dinner and were not disappointed. The four places that we stayed at (from luxury apartment to safari lodge) were exceptional in quality and staffing. We felt cared for and comfortable in all places. Giltedge Africa exceeded our expectations and we will be recommending this company to our friends who will want to replicate our amazing journey from Cape Town to Livingstone.
Will definitely recommend Giltedge Africa to our friends!!
Nikki has been very professional and quick in her replies and gives very good recommendations. The excellent service allowed us to enjoy our vacation without worry.
Thank you Nikki and Team! =)
Our second African safari with Giltedge and another excellent experience with them.
We worked with Sandi Bird of Giltedge. This was our 2nd African safari planned with her expertise. This time we went to Botswana for the incredible wildlife. Sandi was flexible with our requirements and proposed a fantastic itinerary for us. Everything worked out very well in the end and this allowed us to fully enjoy a worry free safari. Her itinerary allowed us to see and experience a range of environments and habitats in Botswana that maximised our time and wildlife encounters in this amazing country. Charter flight transfers between camps were seamless and hassle free. We would not hesitate to recommend Sandi of Giltedge Africa to any of our friends and in fact we do plan on traveling to Africa again in future with Giltedge.
Great Organization, Best Trip of our Lives!
We went into the organization blind. We knew only that we wanted a 6 nights safari, and we wanted to go to Victoria Falls and to the Okavango Delta. Philippa was incredible. She planned the perfect vacation for our family, making sure to check in with me every step of the way. She took care to change the plans according to what I told her, calling daily during the initial organization to make sure I was satisfied with the ongoing changes. After we had our final proposal, she answered all my questions regarding attire, flights, or other details.
We arrived in Johannesburg and stayed in a hotel near the airport, all booked by Philippa, then the "real" trip began.
We spent 2 nights in Victoria Falls, in the best lodge we could have hoped for, the Old Drift Lodge. During the planning, I had wanted to switch to Victoria Falls Safari Suites, and I am so thankful to Philippa for convincing me to keep the Lodge! We had animals roaming through our hotel, as we were inside the reserve. It was incredible. We also planned for White Water Rafting and for a Horse Riding Safari. Both activities were incredible!
Then we spent 2 nights in Chobe Game Lodge. The road transfer, including the crossing of the border, was perfectly organized. Staying inside the Chobe National Park is really worth it. We saw almost all the animals in our "to-watch" list there.
Then we took a small plane to the Okavango Delta for our last 2 nights. Again, the organization was flawless. The camp was lovely and the game drives exciting!
All the camps, transfers and arrangements were perfectly planned, we never had an issue during the trip.
I am glad I found Giltedge Travel and Philippa, as they gave us an incredible experience! All transfers, lodges, and communications couldn't have been better. Thank you for making this past Christmas unforgettable!
Everything was perfect. Nothing to complain about at all.
