Best travel agent I've ever worked with
Lisa was super helpful during this entire process! We were booking quite close in and Lisa gave great suggestions, modifying our itinerary to see more sights. I was especially impressed by holding the rooms prematurely and the quick responses even at late hours. I've never had someone be this proactive; thank you so much!
Safari (Kariega Game Reserve):
The safari experience was great and the right length of time (2 nights / 4 drives) given our packed itinerary. We saw all of the animals that we wanted to and they were quite close :)
* On the drives itself we saw 4 of the big 5 (not the leopard, but they hadn't seen one for the last two years, so that was no problem)
* We did a boat cruise instead of a game drive for one of the four; unfortunately we didn't see anything so I wouldn't recommend that.
* The food was decent and the wine selection was good
* The lodging was great and spacious.
* We tried to book some spa treatments but unfortunately they were all booked up. Weirdly the spa was open from 7am-6pm or something similar which wasn't convenient as we were on game drives from 7:30am-10:30am and 3:30pm-6:30pm...
Overall a great trip.
Extremely Helpful and Great Service
Jumbari were extreme helpful in booking our trip to Chobe National Park in July 2019. I couldn’t have asked for better service in booking and during our stay and would suggest it using their company to anyone.
The only bit of which didn't live up to expectations was that it would have been nice to know in advance that all the activities would be shared with other guest. For example we had to share our boat cruise with about 50 other people on the same massive boat which was not what I was expecting. It sort of spoilt it a little as I was expecting for the price we would get a smaller boat.
Great safari with every detail attended to!
Time opened up for us on short notice for us to do a safari to Botswana. Using the SafariBookings.com website we identified several trips of potential interest and contacted the tour operators. Jumbari not only came back with the best offer, both for what was in the package and for the cost, but did so very quickly and most professionally, handling ALL the details. We only had to show up. And the safari itself was excellent, lion, leopards, even a pack of wild dogs hunting. We would definitely use Jumbari again -- and will be recommending them to friends.
South Africa Adventure
We have recently returned from our South Africa adventure where we travelled with Jumbari Family Safaris. Right from the outset the planning and communications were excellent and the final delivery was terrific - we thoroughly recommend their service. They advised us on the Kruger lodges and Cape Town / Stellenbosch hotels that would work best for us and our teenage girls (aged 14 and 17) - their recommendations were superb. They arranged a number of trips for us including whale watching at Hermanus - an experience the girls will never forget. The girls also enjoyed Cape Town’s Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa and the V&A Waterfront. Obviously the highlight of the trip was the opportunity to see Africa’s famous 'Big 5' - a truly fantastic experience. Thank you Jumbari for a truly memorable holiday.
Always quick to respond, organised, helpful and creative.
We travelled with Jumbari recently to South Africa and highly recommend their service. They knew exactly which lodges in the Kruger would work best for my girlfirend, daughter and I, and in Cape Town their hotel recommendation was perfect. Judy was particularly helpful in terms of co-ordinating a babysitter for one of our nights and she also helped make fun plans for our toddler! It was a great experience and I'm glad we used a family specialist.
