Extremely trustworthy, comprehensive experience
On site tour guides drove our family all throughout the country and were very reliable and helpful in negotiating the details of our experiences. Separate from the guide, the company also set up a Whatsapp discussion group with the owner and office staff in case we had any further questions or problems that they could Manage in real time. The only real problem we had was one of the hotels had our family booked in the wrong room type despite the company confirming previously but with a whatsapp message and our local guide intervening, it was fixed immediately. overall I would recommend them as a very reliable domestic based company in SA for a privately guided group trip (which will save an enormous amount of $ over the US & UK based companies).
Fast response, clear information, good informations
Agency staff provide all information, available for all questions all the time, tailored program is ok.
11 Days Victoria Falls, Cape Town, Chobe, Kruger National Parks, Blyde River Canyon
We have a fabulous holiday. Thanks to Southern African tours for being flexible and plan the full itinerary to fit in our short
schedule. It was very well planned and varied, covering coastal city with vineyard visit in Cape town for city and scenic visit; to
awesome private game drive Safari near Kruger and a different experience on river safari in Zimbabwe and Botswana.
Sheilagh and team at Southern African is very responsive and accommodating on the numerous changes and requests. They are
very professional and quick in getting on text and call with us in Singapore. Overall I would recommend Southern African Tours
to friends doing Safari trip.
Great Tour of Cape Town and Surrounds - Thank-You!!
My husband and I toured with Southern African Tours in late September 2019, and we can't say enough good things about this company. Craig and his team organized and executed a perfect and wonderful tour of Cape Town and surrounds for us. Right from the start, Craig was responsive in his emails. While the company does do pre-arranged tours, based on our interests, Craig tailored a private tour itinerary for us, including whale watching, cheetah visits, wine tasting, wildflowers and amazing scenic vistas, and shark diving. Our tour guide, Derek, was fantastic, we had the absolute best time with him. He was knowledgeable and lots of fun! The B & B's used by Southern African Tours are first rate, we were very impressed. While we did not go to safari on this tour, we did see wildlife (lots of birds, Eland, Ostrich, Zebra, Bontebok, Baboons, and Springbok) which was an added bonus! Cape Town and area is absolutely beautiful - a must see destination! I really recommend Southern African Tours and Craig's team, thank-you for helping us realize such an amazing trip!!
Very enhoyable and met our expectations.
Southern African Tours were able to design a tour of South Africa and Victoria Falls to meet our desired destinations. Communication was straight forward and our questions were always answered. Craig and/or Shelaigh always attended to any issues during the planning stage. Our safari experience in Kruger National Park was very well organised by Outlook tours. The staff of Outlook Safaris in PretoriusKop Rest Camp, Kruger National Park were A+ in all areas and our activities were outstanding.Wild Horizons organised a wonderful itinerary in Victoria Falls the visit to Chobe National Park was excellent.
Our favourite places in and around Cape Town were Cape of Good Hope, the Peninsula, the seal colony, penguin colony at Boulders, the vineyards and Kirstenbosch gardens. Gerry our tour guide in Cape Town was a wealth of information and a true gentleman.
