Totally professional and organised with great communication and flexibility when necessary.
We put together a programme with the family for a big anniversary with 6 of us travelling and Ker & Downey were successful in their quote for lots of reasons.
They delivered on every front. The Rufigi River Camp and the Ruaha River Camp in Tanzania were just as we expected and their service was superb. The Gold Hotel on Zanzibar was perfect to chill in following nearly a week on safari. All our transfers which they pre- organised were on time and very professional and helpful. The paperwork with all the contact details and timings for the complete trip was also very useful to have in case of delays along the trip. I could not recommend this company more highly.
Speedy response and provided exactly what we were looking for, in fact exceeded expectations
Coming from Ireland we were a bit hesitant to use an agent so far away and who we knew nothing about. But the service, the choices and the value on offer won us over. We decided to avoid the busier camps in the north of Tanzania and went for 3 days in Selous and Ruaha in the Rufiji and Ruaha river camps. Both reasonably small riverside camps and could not recommend them highly enough. A little more freedom in Rufiji to wander and a little less driving to find game. Having said that we saw everything you could want to see. Two very different venues and well worth doing both. We finished at the Gold resort in Zanzibar which is simply superb, on the beach and five
A holiday of a lifetime made even more pleasurable by all involved
Magical trip of a lifetime
The team of Ker and Downey Africa,Rene,Judy and especially Zeena and Kayleigh made the planning of a trip to South Africa which seemed so daunting so seamless and easy! They held our hands at every turn creating for us the most incredible trip of a lifetime. The trip ran seamless never a hiccup! We were treated like royalty wherever we went,each hotel more magnificent then the next each tour more awesome then the next. Ker and Downey Africa created the most memorable holiday we have ever taken. They even managed a private tour with Christo Brand,Nelson Mandela's prison guard, which was priceless. Ker and Downey introduced us to Shamwari game reserve as we wanted to avoid taking malaria pills on our trip. We had never heard of this reserve before and it turned out to be the most idyllic setting and lodge to do a safari! Zeena throughout the trip was our guardian angel,in constant contact with us making sure our trip was going wonderfully. There was never a driver late, a tour guide late nor a flight delayed. Thank you Ker and Downey Africa,Zeena and Kayleigh for making our dreams a reality,the trip was the most incredible trip. You led the way showing how kind the people of South Africa are!! The only company to use for your next South Africa Luxadventure is Ker and Downey Africa!!
Top Notch Travel Services
I engaged Sarah Morris and her team at Ker & Downey Africa to plan a fairly complex adventure that included a safari in Kenya, the pyramids in Cairo and a Nile cruise. I can't say enough about the attention to detail during the planning phase and the genuine focus on making sure our final vacation itinerary would fulfill our travel goals. Once we were on the ground, the K&D team was with us every step of the way - morning, noon and night - should anything need adjustment. I highly recommend Ker & Downey Africa should you be interested in luxury travel in Africa. You won't be disappointed.
Epic and memorable for our entire family
Emma Perrin was passionate about making this an amazing adventure, and always available for consultations. I changed my mind many times, and each time she patiently walked me through the considerations. Her advice proved to be excellent in terms of the choice of lodges, duration of stay, pacing etc. She was so good I felt completely comfortable booking our Cape Town leg with the company too.
All the service staff we met were TOP notch. This is not an exaggeration. They had asked for food preferences, but what really impressed me what that they made huge efforts on a daily basis to cater to our needs. Frankly, we did not dare to expect such quality on safari.
The game drives were led by superb guides. We saw a lot and had a hard (but very enjoyable) time curating our photo album. In many ways, this experience surpassed every trip we’d made as a family.
I must also add that Ker & Downey has used technology to great effect. Tour iteranaries can be downloaded on an app. But even before that, the proposals were backed up by so much material available through a few clicks. The presentation was thoughtful and very attractive. They are way ahead of most tour Operators.
Finally, Alex Cloete gave excellent restaurant recommendations in Cape Town. We wished we had more meals to enjoy:)
