She demonstrated excellent attention to details and interest in our comfort and happiness.

Our trip to South Africa was broken into three segments. First of all we toured Johannesburg with a guide, Thabang (Moreafrica Tours) and enjoyed visiting the Capitol Hill and the prison which has been upgraded to a museum for persons who were held illegally for political crimes. We then toured the Nelson Mandela home and museum. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. He took us to Soweto and we were able to actually go in the homes of some of the very poor people living there in the projects. We visited a daycare and it was heart wrenching.
The second segment of our trip took us to Embali Lodge where we experienced fantastic food and exciting Safari adventures each day we were there. The accommodations were luxurious and the staff was very attentive. Our guide, Moshe was well educated and a great communicator.
The final segment of our trip took us to Nkorho Lodge which was equally luxurious and also a very accommodating staff. Our food there was wonderful and we experienced the outdoor baumer dining by bon-fire and candlelight.
We again saw many animals on every single safari trip. We saw hundreds of elephants and nearly a 100 lions as well as many leopards, zebras, rhinos, hippos, Giraffe, monkeys, water buffalo, wildebeest, wild dogs, hyena, impala, and various other deer like animals. It was quite thrilling to see so many animals living in their natural habitat. We never felt threatened and we had outstanding guides and trackers each time we entered the bush. Our guide was Peter and our tracker was Chris. They were warm, welcoming and very eager to please.

East Cape Tours so helpful in difficult circumstances.

I booked a multi centre trip which we unfortunately had to postpone due to Covid, Lynn helped us promptly to rebook the entire trip for next year, there was no additional cost and nothing was too much trouble, I highly recommend them.

Really looking forward to it, I am desperately in need of a vacation.


After nearly a month of waiting to hear back from the 'CEO' we are finally told that they will not provide a refund even though the country is not letting us travel there. This was a honeymoon trip and our wedding is cancelled, so unhelpful. This was the only provider who we have encountered problems with, all other bookings in our trip were kindly refunded. Awful customer service. Silly company really as I imagine everyone who experiences this will not book with them in the future.

Disgraceful handling of Covid led cancellation

We booked a safari in Jan 2020 and had to cancel in May 2020. For the next 5 months we tried contacting EastCape Safaris to arrange some form of a refund or credit note. We were totally ignored or constantly promised a call back - we got nothing until eventually today when the CEO wrote:
"I am afraid under these extremely difficult circumstance we have been forced to adhere strictly to our terms and conditions, which were included with our confirmation at the time of booking."
Unlike virtually every other Tour Operator he is playing hard ball. In these terrible times this is not how to act! I would never recommend East Cape Tours to anyone in the future...

Great service

In The East Cape Tours we were in touch with Nerine. She was always quick in responses and planned our tours in South Africa customized on our specific needs. We went with East Cape Tours to safari and vineyard tour. Everything went smoothly, all the guides and drivers were always on time as planned and we really enjoyed our stay. The Kariega Homestead was beautiful place with nice people around and amazing food. We can only recommend!
