The trip was sensational and tailored to our needs. Simply fantastic!

The care by Walter was great from planning to leaving Johannesburg. The accommodations were perfectly chosen. If after a few days you thought it could not be better, you were told otherwise. It was an increase every day, with the 3 days safari in the Kruger, including overnight in tree house, the grand finale.
I would book a trip anytime again at Safari Online.

Excellent service and support for our Africa vacation

Delivering outstanding performance

When we first interacted with Walter Kohrs of Safari Online, he professionally inquired about what we were after in our safari experience. When we responded with issues, he responded with recommendations. He made our arrangements and followed through when initially they could not be completed, and he explained the steps of how safari camp bookings were done. Every interaction with him was professional and he responded quickly to each issue and email. In the end, every detail was covered, we were prepared for all the steps and everything worked like clockwork. We could not have been happier, and I can give Walter Kohrs and Safari Online the highest ratings.

Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.

Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver. She responded to our requests promptly and gave us several options with links to each option; we ultimately chose Lukimbi. She then coordinated our flights to and from the property, arranged the drivers necessary to get us from the airport to the lodge and back again, and sent the appropriate paperwork to each of us to verify each step of the process. We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge--the experience of a lifetime--and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn't have done it without her!

Katrina provieded us with the Safari experience of a lifetime! Answered our many questions.

The Safari at Lukimbi was spectacular from start to finish. We had JEFFREY who provided us transport from airport to Lukimbi, the lodge was great and our rooms - so very nice, great food and our Safari guides - Malcolm and Golden were exceptionally good - we saw the big 5 more than once, and they provided rain/window ponchos , blankets, coffee & water. We were within 15 feet of elephants, lions, giraffes - etc.

I will always remember this wonderful Holiday !

A great tour operator that was a pleasure to deal with.

We used Safari Online to put together a mid-range Botswana trip for a group of four going to three different camps and then onto Vic Falls. We asked several operators to provide options (through this great safari bookings website) and Walter Kohrs from Safari Online was easily the most responsive and quickest to provide different but realistic options and at good prices. In the end it was a no brainer to go with Safari Online. Walter always responded to my queries quickly, with honest and valuable responses that were clear and made sense. From our perspective he tailored a good mix of places for both our budget and standard of facilities that suited us perfectly, with enough information and links to help us make our decisions. In the end each camp was different and had different aspects and strengths that made each unique. We loved it.

Outstanding experience!

We have booked at the Elephant Plains Lodge. We stayed there for a few nights and went on safaris. The lodge, the guide, the food and all the animals we have seen were fantastic. Really an outstanding experience. We can recommend Elephant Plains to everybody. Maybe you will not be as lucky as we were, becaucse we have seen the Big 5! But however you will not forget your stay at Elephant Plains.

Camping Safari (with a Twist)

Walter is by far the best travel agent we have had! He is always very good in getting back to us with the information we need in a timely fashion. The communicate level way exceeds our expectation.
The trip was relaxing and we get to see a lot of animals. It is a unique experience than other safaris that we had been on as this move from location to location and you get to see and experience different aspects of the animal, landscape, flora and fauna as we travel. The accommodation is good and we are amazed of the type of food the chef can make in a camp environment. We were totally unplugged from the outside world as there are no internet connection, no electricity etc. Cautions should be taken of your temperature tolerance so you can pick the season that will be best for you as you will have no AC or heating. We went during winter so the morning and the evening were chilly. However, the beddings were very comfortable and we were warm enough except for the brief moments between getting out of bed and putting clothes on. The guide was very knowledgeable and the camp staff were courteous and attentive. Overall a great experience!

Quick and committed

I was planning for our second safari (after Serengeti in June) and managed to get contact with Karina of Safari Online. Nonetheless, i cannot deny that I am a bit underwhelm with the choices and etc (there are so many). Karina helped us with ease. She understood my budget, what we want to second and went to extra length in explaining my queries (all regarding the trip to animal sightings). We nearly confirmed our South Africa arrangement with Safari Online if not for an eleventh hour inclusion into a safari photography (which are few in between and fully booked as well as my wife's interest in photography). I apologise to Karina for her hard work and dedication and she understood well and wishing us well. A shame that we can't utilise the tree house that she already booked us for that particular tour but if you are thinking to have a full detailed of arrangement, Karina of safari Online is one of the very best consultants out there.
