Instrumental in our most amazing honeymoon
Giltedge (Tanya) worked with us to create the most amazing honeymoon in South Africa and Victoria Falls. We have travelled quite alot around the world usually organising and planning trips ourselves. However utalising local knowledge and experience was invaluable and allowed us to remain hasslefree throughout. Communication has been great throughout and nothing was to much would highly recommend.
Outstanding Experience: Extremely organized, responsive, and helpful!
After thorough research on Safari Bookings, we decided to use Giltedge to book our safari. We originally booked it for August 2020, but then re-booked to 2021, and then to 2022. They made this process very easy for us and we did not incur any additional charges.
The booking process was very smooth. We knew of two properties we wanted to visit, and we let our Giltedge representative recommend two others based on our preferences. The lodges they recommended were incredible and they really hit the mark by sending us to a lodge with a very high concentration of zebras- my favorite animal. They were able to work within our budget to give us exactly the kind of experience we wanted.
We had never been to Africa and we were nervous about this trip and the logistics. But everything was made very clear and easy by Giltedge. While we were on the trip, all of our transfers arrived in a timely manner and every person we encountered was very helpful and friendly. We did a lot of internal travel within Africa (flights to and from Johannesburg, light aircraft) and all the transfers went very smoothly; something I had been a little nervous about beforehand.
When we book our next trip to Africa I will definitely use Giltedge. They were extremely professional, took care of EVERYTHING, and we always felt very well taken care of before, during, and after our adventure.
In one word excellent
First of all, our travel agent, Tamera Laine was excellent and went out of her way to make everything perfect, even last minute changes in our itenerary. All of our transfers went smooth. Everything about our vacation to the Maasai Mara North Conservatory and where we stayed at the Royal Mara Safari Lodge in Kenya, Africa was unequivocal to any other vacation we have ever been on. It was the experience of a lifetime. If you want safari that is the place to go.
Giltedge delivered on its promise of a tailormade, luxury safari experience!
After three years of planning and postponing, we were finally able to check "African safari" off our bucket list in July--and was it ever worth it! Tamera Laine worked with us every step of the way, through all our changes and indecision, even meeting with us on a weekend when we needed reassurance. If you are looking for an inexpensive trip to South Africa, do not look into Giltedge, but if you're looking for comfort, excellent service from the camp staff, knowledgeable guides, and attention to detail, Giltedge can't be beat. We wanted to see as much wildlife as possible, be fairly secluded from others, and have "en suite" bathrooms--and Giltedge delivered! Our tents were quite comfortable with king-sized beds, desks, WiFi (sometimes spotty), and hot water, but very cold at night during the winter season! To take care of that, there were three blankets on our bed and a hot water bottle under the covers, and on early morning safaris we were given heavy, warm ponchos to wear. We had no worries about eating or drinking anything we were served--food was excellent (often served buffet style) and water and alcohol were readily available. We really enjoyed the coffee breaks on our morning safaris, and the sundowners with those gorgeous sunsets in the afternoons. The way the guides could find the animals just by sight or by following their tracks in the sand was just amazing. Among other things, we saw hippos, a den of hyenas, a mama and baby giraffe, wild dogs, an ostrich, a pride of lions stalking a herd of Cape buffalo, and elephants that were so close to us in our blind, that we could have reached out and touched their huge feet. We have so many great pictures and memories... Thank you, Giltedge, for our once-in-a-lifetime experience in Zimbabwe and Botswana!
Our agent made the process very simple and thought of details we would not have traveling that far
The agency listened to the changes we requested for our “bush and beach” vacation. Their communication was excellent and there we absolutely no problems.
