Incredible animals, skilled guides. Many extraordinary conversations about life in South Africa.
Kathi organized every detail. While we were still at home, she found ways to communicate to ensure she understood what we were looking for and very flexibly modified suggestions accordingly. Continued to communicate while we were on the trip, reassuring us that someone was always tracking our whereabouts. Able to troubleshoot a couple of times when adjustments were required leading to totally smooth service.
We had 3 different safari experiences. They were all different and all excellent. Each guide was very skilled. The subtle way they located animals and knew where to position our vehicles to get the best views were my favourite parts.
Kathi encouraged us to go to Tanzania for a true "African" experience. It was a real highlight of the trip.
We had asked for some hiking to be part of out trip. When she included a hiking guide, we had excellent experiences.
This was the best planned and executed vacation we have ever had!!
Throughout our experience with African Welcome Safaris we have found them to be helpful, knowledgeable and very easy to communicate with. We found them to be responsive to our initial queries, mindful of what we said we wanted, while at the same time helpful in making suggestions for things we didn’t know about. We found our drivers, accommodations and safari experience to all be above our expectations. Should you be fortunate enough to have Rhys as your driver at any point, he is amazing. Sabi Sands Little Bush Lodge is a truly lovely experience with such a small, private guest number. The Michalangelo hotel in Johannesburg is the nicest we have ever stayed in and we have stayed in many hotels, in many countries! Thank you so much Kathi, for organizing our trip of a lifetime!
Tailored to the Needs and Perfect Performance
Great dialogue before the trip, with flexible approach and valuable input.
Perfect execution of the service during the trip: flawless service everywhere with drivers on time, very clean cars, knowledgeable individuals.
Extremely good service! Definitely worth the experience!
Communications done with Kathi via email and Whatsapp was smooth and quick, despite the time difference.
My husband and I were impressed with how she came up with a summary for us on our Africa itinerary.
Follow-ups were done well too with the respective safaris and partner agencies. Overall we were really satisfied, our Namibia and Kenya legs were epic, only problem we had was with Lion Sands at Kruger, first night the air conditioning was out and we had to take initiative to get it fixed, second night the power at the treehouse went off twice and ruined our stay. Hopefully we will get our refund as it's still pending.
Fabulous, fuss free and extremely responsive!
Kathi was the person we communicated with from the start. She was extremely helpful and responsive, and her detailed itinerary for us from the start was so helpful in giving us a good idea of what each day looked like as well as travel times, accommodations etc. all the accommodations she chose for our group were wonderful. The safari tour was definitely the highlight of our time in South Africa. Mills Manor was the perfect space for our large group and the staff there were extremely thoughtful and attentive. Our ranger/guide for our stay was very knowledgeable and every meal was a feast! I would highly recommend working with Kathi!
