The trip of our lives!
I chose Ker & Downey to help us plan our African safari after hours of online research comparing the different safari outfits and reviewing their tours. I absolutely chose the right company and Kayleigh, our "Adventurist" who helped us, was amazing in her attention to detail to ensure we had the trip of our lives. Nothing was overlooked, from the airport transfers to the suggestions of what we should be sure to do at each location and lodge. She presented us with three options in different price ranges and then changed things as requested. My husband told her this was our honeymoon - after 29 years of marriage - and she passed this on to each lodge where we stayed. One lodge had a bubble bath set up for us with candles lit when we returned from an evening game drive, and another one had a lovely candlelight dinner away from camp and under the stars of the Milky Way. These experiences were wonderful and meaningful beyond belief and added immeasurably to our enjoyment of this trip. I cannot recommend Ker & Downey and especially Kayleigh enough, they will help you plan the safari of your dreams. One thing we did was have a balance between actual safari and site-seeing. We were in Cape Town for four days where we saw Table Mountain, the winelands, and the cape area; then Lion Sands Narina Lodge where we saw Sabi Sands Game Preserve and part of Kruger National Park; then the Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe; and finally, two areas in Botswana, the Savute and the Okavango Delta. This was utterly perfect for us, a stellar blend of game drives to see the wildlife and the tours to see incredible natural wonders. Kayleigh at Ker & Downey did a masterful job coordinating all of the transfers between countries - we were so glad to have people meet us and usher us through Customs and Immigration. Trust me, Ker & Downey will help you plan a memorable trip and will see that every last detail is covered so that you can remain worry-free. We are in love with Africa now and I know we will return. We will not hesitate to use Ker & Downey and Kayleigh again in our future travels.
5 star service, top notch accommodations, and stress free end to end!
We can't thank Ker & Downey enough. From start to finish, it was such an easy process to work with them. Starting with our initial conversations, to booking, and staying in contact with us throughout the trip, everything was 5 star. Most importantly, the places booked for us were absolutely incredible. Every place we stayed at exceeded our expectations! We have already told our friends and family that if they are considering South Africa, go through Ker & Downey and ask for Emma and Alex!
Went out of their way to make sure we had the trip of a lifetime
Ker & Downey Africa organised our honeymoon in South Africa. They were recommended by a family member and we have no regrets in getting them to organise our trip. Emma designed our honeymoon after understanding what we were after. Our communication was all over email which worked well and she replied quickly throughout. Nothing was too much trouble, however big or small.
Emma suggested Narina Lodge in Lions Sands game reserve (Kruger). What a great place. The staff were amazing and we had the time of our lives. The guide made sure we saw everything we wanted to (despite us knowing there are no guarantees).
During our trip we kept Emma and her colleague Alex up to date via whatsapp and they seemed to show a real interest in how we were getting on and making sure we were happy.
In short, I would recommend Ker & Downey to anybody wanting to go on safari or in fact any trip.
Did all the right things
They were spot on and left out no detail. Sarah and her team were great and responsive on the whole trip. Highly recommend
The most amazing trip of my entire life.
Words can't really describe how wonderful our trip to Africa was with Ker and Downey. Not only did we have the most memorable experience with excellent game viewings and excursions, but our lodgings were second to none, and all needs were taken care of so thoroughly. I've traveled extensively around the world and without a doubt this was the best trip I've taken and also the smoothest. I credit a lot of it to Emma Perrin, our travel agent with Ker and Downey. She kept us so informed before, during, and after the trip and made sure things went seamlessly and organized. I can't thank her enough for opening our eyes to the natural beauty and wonderful people of Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe, and Zambia. There's no doubt that I will use Ker and Downey again for future African adventures and would request them to everyone I know thinking about venturing to Africa- and I already have. Thank you SO much! -Grant and Bekah; Memphis, TN, USA
