Efficeincy and kindness
Everything was perfect: first, our agent Megan Who was really kinds then, accommodation which were place in a beautiful landscape. The rooms and facilities were charming even four wheel drive vehicule was clean and perfect. And transfers were perfectly schedule.
Excellent in all facets
My partner & I just had a brilliant 3 & a half weeks in Southern Africa. Everything was excellent & I highly recommend Discover Africa. From the safaris to the cities to the wine region it was all great. All arrangements including hotels made on our behalf were fabulous! Sabi Sands Game Reserve, Victoria Falls, Okavango Delta, Cape Town & Frranschoek were all highlights & are definitely worth visiting.
I’d also like to note Discover Africa’s professional during the 3 years we dealt with them. Yes 3! Our trip was Covid delayed but throughout this time communications were constant & reassuring.
In particular thanks to our consultant Megan Warrington for her great efforts & service!!
Vihann our contact was Outstanding!
Wow, exceptional service from Vihann!
Our trip was booked & organised a couple of weeks prior departure, we had 9 days spare to spend in Botswana after Namibia. Emails were sent to half dozen booking companies, some replied with what do you want to do, some said we’ll respond in 24-48hrs but not Vihann he had our itinerary (including our flight out of Namibia) ready to go on first contact. What a relief, all we had to do was enjoy the safaris. Everything went like clockwork, every flight, every detail, 3 lodges of mid-luxury and all 7 flights in & out of Botswana and back to Jo’burg with a lovely night stay in Sandton and delivered back to the airport for our flight home. There’s no way we could have done this ourselves..
The detailed itinerary had everything we needed to do and be at what time. We were also met on arrival in Botswana & Joburg which was very reassuring as it was our first time to Africa.
The Safari days are amazing and full, which meant the early nights were a blessing, the tour guides are so knowledgeable so kind fun and helpful, we loved the glamping style accom with all the comforts incl repellent, lotions and filtered drinking water…so much delicious food! there were so many special moments it’s too long to list all of them, like the night an elephant was eating/walking past our lodge, hyenas crunching on their meal, a lion calling for his brother right next to our car, or the Hippo who jumped out of the water just as surprised as us in our boat…truly amazing and always felt safe. Thank you Vihann we highly recommend you.
Megan was so easy to deal with every request from us was catered for - - I dealt with her from Australia and thought that it may be difficult but this was the furthest from reality - she was amazing- the trip was the best we have ever done, everything was so well planned and organised everything went so smoothly. The lodges were beyond perfect, we will definitely be using Megan again and will definitely be travelling to South Africa again. So highly recommend using Megan.
Unforgettable safari experience in Southern Africa
Our experience started months before during the planning with the amazing Susan. This was our first time visiting Africa, and she was always very open, communicative and listened to all of our wishes and wants and made us feel like we were in very good hands.
We had a set budget for this trip, but wanted to celebrate our 30th birthdays in a memorable way, so Susan made sure to encompass all the highlights within our set budget.
Our tour was a 9 Day Botswana and Victoria Falls Safari.
We started with 3 nights at the Oddball's Camp within the Moremi Game Reserve (On the East side of the Okavango Delta). This was a beautiful experience. The camp is deep in the heart of the Okavango, and only accessible by light aircraft (where you can see beautiful aerial views of the Delta). Oddballs’ offers no motorised activities, so it is really just you and nature.
We had the luxury of being the only guests at the camp at the time, so we had a lot of privacy and attention from the staff.
Every day, we had two game walks, which was a beautiful opportunity to explore the game reserve by foot and really be one with nature and animals. Our guide was Raps, who was incredibly knowledgeable and had great eyes for animals even from afar.
With Raps as our fantastic guide we were able to track down a Lion, see multiple herds of elephants and zebras, buffalos and pods of hippos. And even a leopard!
We also had the excitement of seeing Lions during dinner, 2 out of the 3 nights we were there.
On our last full day, that is when I celebrated my 30th birthday, and it was truly magical. Pony (the camp leader) helped organise a private candlelit dinner on the deck and surprised me with traditional dance and songs performed by the entire staff. It was truly unforgettable. And hat's off to Kay and the catering staff, the food was divine!
Oddballs has definitely found a special place in my heart, and I will always remember Raps, Pony and Doc dancing while we took off to head over to Chobe.
Our time at Chobe was also amazing. This time our safaris were either drives or by boat. We stayed at Chobe Bush Lodge in Kasane, and the whole pick up and transfer went smoothly. We did not need to wait at all.
We had two activities per day and even had our own private boat ride and were able to visit Namibia for a day trip. The staff were incredibly helpful and the food, delicious!
Here I will also have to commend Susan's amazing communication skills and proactiveness, as I had forgotten a bag in the previous camp and informed Susan about it, and she was incredible and managed to have my bag brought back to me in less than 24h!
The drives in Chobe were completely different every day. We were able to see massive pods of hippos, a pride of 15 lions, wildebeest, crocodiles and an incredible amount of gorgeous birds.
Our final stop was in Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. The hotel was beautiful. Shongwe Lookout. With a lookout tower to view the Zambezi River and the falls' spray.
Here we were able to view the falls from all angles! By foot (prepared to get soaked, but such a fun experience), by helicopter (we had a 12 min ride) and by tram during sunrise. (with the Bamba tram)
All in all, an INCREDIBLE, UNFORGETTABLE experience, and I could not thank Susan & Discover Africa enough.
Highly recommend, and already excited to book the next tour with you! <3
