We were due to go on our honeymoon in April 2020. When we were researching, we emailed a lot with Sandra, who provided lots of recommendations and advice about the different places, and was generally really informative. When we had to postpone our trip due to Covid-19, Sandra was excellent in keeping us up to date with all of the options, replying to our emails really quickly and generally helping us out in what was a really stressful time. Her emails were always really upbeat and personal, which we really appreciated, and it felt like she really cared about helping us get the best for our honeymoon. I look forward to speaking with her again soon, and would not hesitate to book with Traipsing Africa, and particularly with Sandra, again.
Sandra helped me book a 3-day tour at the Black Rhino Lodge near Pilanesberg national park. My friends and I had an amazing experience there. Sandra was so easy to communicate with and made me feel at ease throughout the whole planning process. Each step of the trip was perfect. We would love to return someday for another tour!
SPECTACULARLY SPECIAL! Magical Trip.
Our trip to South Africa and Jamila Lodge in the Welgevonden Game Park was a trip of a life time! Sandra Nicol at Traipsing Through Africa made it all happen with the upmost care, excitement and precision. Sandra contacted me and immediately became my guardian angel through the whole journey--from planning, site-seeing, getting to our safari location--to our precarious return home due to the beginning of the world-wide shutdown & CORONA-19 Pandemic.
I contacted Safari Bookings to get recommendations for Safari excursions w/easy access to Johannesburg--I wasn't sure what to expect. I didn't know I would gain a friend in South Africa who knew exactly what we needed! When Sandra called, she listened to all of our needs and hopes. She soon became a wonderful resource for every aspect of our travel to South Africa, including hotels upon arrival, ground transportation, advice on day excursions and local safety. She was in touch on a regular basis to tailor our trip to our needs and time frame. She worked everything around other plans we already had in place in SA and Eswatini.
Sandra recommended a lodge in the mountains of the Waterberg District, of the Limpopo, province--about 3.5 hours from Johannesburg--Jamila. It was absolutely perfect! When the world situation began to change, our plans began to change by the minute as well. Sandra was checking-in and came to our rescue, re-arranging details and accommodations. We were blown away by the personal service of Sandra and the staff at Jamila Lodge. Sandra's concern and care for us went above and beyond. In spite of everything, we had a very private peaceful adventure with wonderful gourmet meals, beautiful luxury rooms, top-notch service, 2 daily-privately guided safari excursions, breath-taking scenery and sun-sets, morning al fresco tea-breaks, fire-side dinners, spotting of The Big 5 and so much more. It was heaven on earth and we could not have done it without Sandra at Traipsing Through Africa! When we do it again, we'll call Sandra!
Excellent and professional Service throughout the entire experience!
Sandra was very helpful and always communicated with us in a timely manner. The service was outstanding and I would highly recommend to anyone looking for an amazing experience!
Incredible special experience at Hoyo Hoyo
Sandra was incredibly helpful and communicative in the build-up to our trip to Kruger. She sent us advice about other part of SA that we were visiting, and also kept us updated on SAA strikes that threatened to impact our holiday for a time. We felt completely confident that from the moment we touched down in Kruger we would not have to think about anything for the next 4 days and we were right! We were met by one of the Hoyo Hoyo lodge staff, which Sandra had arranged, and from that moment on it was complete bliss. Hoyo Hoyo itself is wonderful - the food is delicious (and plentiful!), we were continuously refreshed by tea and coffee breaks and evening drinks, both at the lodge and on safari, and the atmosphere was very luxurious and relaxing. The bush drives themselves were very special, and our guide Pharence spotted many animals with us and beautiful sights. I had a massage on one of the mornings which was great, before spending the day in between drives by the pool looking out for elephants. All the staff members were friendly and welcoming and we were sad to leave! I would recommend both Hoyo Hoyo and Traipsing Africa to anybody looking to book a trip to Kruger.
