Compass Odyssey prides itself as being a small and personable travel planner and is owner-managed by Kate and Darren Humphrys, who live on South Africa's rugged and picturesque Cape Peninsula along with their three children Henry, Olive and Hume. We offer quality travel experiences that provide our travellers with a journey that is both informative and inspiring.
Compass Odyssey = African Adventure
Compass Odyssey exceeded our expectations - detailed information prior to our trip; what to wear; what to bring; what to expect; step by step itinerary etc. Yet - for us....the frantic, working couple - there was little time to read and thankfully Crusty had a "Cheat Sheet" of essential information so we were still well informed and had the best of both worlds.
From Crusty reorganising cancelled flights without us being bothered (fault of the airline, not Compass Odyssey), to lovely Mortimer and Ruth picking us up from the airport, organising all our border crossings, activities and drop-offs - we really couldn't ask for more. Fabulous lodges, hotels and Gin and Tonic sunset Safari cruises with knowledgeable guides to see the amazing wildlife and animals. Fabulous food, every meal.
We wholeheartedly recommend Compass Odyssey to families, couples and singles. Crusty's attention to detail, his emails to check on how we were going during the trip and post-trip ensured a first-class experience.
Excellent and reliable service
We were recommended to Compass Odyssey by friends that had used their services prior. From our initial email contact to our return from an amazing vacation, Darren and his team were incredibly professional, responsive, and available to answer any and all questions. I particularly liked the detailed itinerary they provided and all the supplementary information offered. They were knowledgeable, flexible and willing to customize our accommodations and specific tour requests. We traveled to South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Zambia as a family of 4 with 2 teens. In each location, we were very pleased with the accommodations and tour recommendations. We stayed in everything from luxury tented camps to lodges, guest houses and hotels. In each location, we found the staff to be personable and the rooms to be impeccably clean and comfortable. We were impressed with the quality and quantity of the meals provided. I'm very happy to recommend Darren and his team - you won't be disappointed!
Darren and Kate are great!
Always answering the emails and providing outstanding service. We were their first mexican clients in 22 years and I need to take my hat off! Everything went as planned and explained by them. No surprises at all!
The safari was an outstanding expiriance. First time we do this and we loved it. Couldnt have done it without Darren and Kate!
Keep helping people fulfill their travel dreams!
The best communication I have ever had from a tour company.
Compass Odyssey worked with us to create a custom trip including Zimbabwe, Botswana, and South Africa. Their guides met us at every stop, were punctual, professional and knowledgeable. Ruth led us around Victoria Falls, her associate got us to the Kasane Airport in Botswana for our transfer to Pom Pom cam and after three days in the bush, Garth met us in Cape Town. We spent the most time with Garth and found him to be an outstanding guide. He was extremely knowledgeable regarding the history of South Africa. All and all it was a great trip and we would highly recommend Compass Odyssey .
Being our first time to South Africa we selected Compass Odyssey to arrange our safaris and we were not disappointed. From the moment we contacted Darren we off to a good start. We gave Darren a brief out line of what we wanted to to do and within a short time Darren has provided information and suggestions of what would be best. During the weeks of communication Darren answered all out question and concerns straightaway and provide suggestions to make our trip better. Daren provide all the necessary information needed to make our holiday a success.
For the safaris that we did all the lodges were excellent and the staff at these lodges went the extra mile to make out stay memorable. We could not fault Darren's selection. Our stay included Kruger, Victoria Falls, Zambezi (Zambia and Zimbabwe) and Botswana. When there were any problem Darren contacted us and immediately made alternative arrangement so our holiday was not spoiled. Darren and Compass Odyssey were excellent and would recommend Darren and Compass Odyssey for your safaris and and any activity in South Africa
