Detailed oriented and excellent operator
From the start of the planning process to the day we ended our trip, Karina and Walter at Online Safari was there to make sure our trip was everything that we had hoped for. If your looking to plan the trip of a lifetime, go with Karina and Walter at Online Safari. The trip was well organized and reasonably priced, trust me, just book it with them.
Nothing Short of Outstanding
My husband and I are experienced and confident travellers and yet, when it came to getting the best from our safari in Botswana, we couldn't possibly have delivered on such an outstanding itinerary alone.
During our first telephone conversation, Walter at Safari Online sought to understand our requirements - our safari travel history to date, the level of comfort we would prefer, the diversity we were looking for in our itinerary between land and water-based safari and the type of wildlife/animal behaviour we would most like to see. He then crafted a six day trip, which began in the rugged landscape of Savute, know for it's predator action, followed by the serenity of the Okavango water-based activities and topped off with a bonus few days at a camp in the lap of luxury. He read our personality and requirements perfectly and made recommendations, without at any time, seeming to prefer one option over another. His focus was rather to ensure that our choices were well informed and suited to our needs. The logistics in terms of transport, dietary requirements and birthday surprises were flawless - thank you.
When dealing with Walter is was more like dealing with a knowledgeable and honest friend, whose passion just happened to be safaris! The electronic presentation of the itinerary was professional, easy reading and packed with information. Walter went the extra mile to answer our endless questions and, in Covid times, ensured that we were reassured with the terms and conditions of the lodges. We knew that he would be there to help us overcome any hurdles.
As independent travellers, we normally book our own trips and are understandably cautious whenever seeking out a tour operator. From the first moment, we had no qualms whatsoever that we were dealing with an honest, straightforward company who had extensive knowledge and had our best interests at heart and that was very much the case from start to finish. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Safari Online at the highest level and will travel with them again in the not too distant future, as will, I am sure, many family and friends to whom we have recommended Walter and his team.
very profesional and 100 percent relaiable
it is difficult to put all this in words, it was more than you can expect, just wonderful. The guides tried so hard to show all the wildlife, even in difficult times. The accomodations were all special and all the staff just great. I can really recommend it.
Helpful, friendly and knowledgable service
Communication was very easy and fast. Karina was very helpful and managed to give suggestions to meet our budget and time table.
The two centres chosen, Gold Reef City and Lush Private Lodge exceeded our expectations.
Transfers were on time and also efficient. Would have no hestitation in recommending them to others and we plan use to use their services next time we travel to africa.
My husband and I just returned from a 9 day safari experience in Victoria Falls, Chobe National Park, and Okavango Delta. Kim from Safari Online planned out a truly amazing safari trip for us. She was extremely responsive and accommodating with various questions and requests we had during the planning phase. She made sure every detail was taken care of. The trip itself was great! We never really had to worry about a thing in terms of transportation pick-ups, flight charters, etc. Everything was well-planned and executed. We really liked all of the camps/ lodges that Kim booked for us. We saw so many animals and so much wildlife, from lions to leopards to aardvarks. There really were way too many to list here. The safari guides we had were excellent and worked hard to make sure we had great wildlife sightings and stayed safe. The food was excellent everywhere we stayed and I was surprised by how well-fed we were. Everything was perfect except for the scorching heat (the rainy season seemed to be refusing to start) when we were there but we didn't really let that get to us as we were having such a great time. I'd definitely recommend Safari Online.
