Excellent, timely, very professional service
I have been very highly impressed with the service from Gondwana Tours & Safaris. They answered my initial enquiry promptly and subsequently Philippa Lawrence contacted me straight away. She enquired about our plans and replied to us with comprehensive answers, taking into account exactly our needs and requirements in relation to our budget and our overall Safari experience expectations. She provided us with the choice of different locations with detailed information about each of them. Philippa was extremely friendly and helpful. I would not hesitate to use her services again and I would recommend her to our friends and family.

Perfectly tailored African adventure
Christelle from Gondwana Tours really hooked us up on our maiden trip to Africa. We were late booking our adventures, but she worked hard for us to include our wishlist of Vic Falls, birding and game viewing camps (Mopiri and Nokanyana) in Botswana within our budget and ensuring it was safe and manageable for a 9 year old (no small feat). All transfers (air/car/boat) to and from Cape Town airport and to our respective accommodations were seamless taking the stress off planning. If you want to book a stress free adventure in Africa, go with Gondwana Tours!

Great organizacion for a fly-in safari in the Okavango
I booked a four-night, five-day fly-in safari with Gondwana Tours & Safaris. From the very beginning, the service was excellent and they helped me choose the camp that best suited my budget and interests. Their email communication was very efficient, and they confirmed receipt of payments promptly. The safari, both the plane flights and the camp, were perfect. I was able to see lions, wild dogs, elephants, buffalo... It was a great experience! I highly recommend Gondwana Tours & Safaris for this type of trip.

Perfect! It was the most amazing journey of our lives!
We had the most incredible trip of our lives because of Gondwana tours! We saw so much wildlife (lions, leopards, hippo's a honeybadger lots and lots of elephants) it really is too much to put down in words. And all the places we stayed where amazing! We have spent our times in such lovely and beautiful camps. The quality was topnotch. I'm really missing Botswana, and look back to this trip with so much joy. The trip really couldn't be done better.
Especially thanks to Mark, he came with a tailormade plan for us and he really went above and beyond to help and create the best journey there is. He gave us great tips and advice and he was really thinking along with us (also to keep it in our budget). I would not hesitate for a second to book (again) with Gondwana. We are definitely going back some day! Everything was arranged perfectly!
So if you're thinking about going with Gondwana, just do it. You won't be disappointed!

Excellent at providing comprehensive package and answering any and all questions promptly.
My primary goal was to see Victoria Falls, and do a safari (my first) since already in Africa. After research on Safaribookings.com, I found that Gondwana offered the most attractive package. I worked with Mark at Gondwana who not only answered all questions, including those I wasn't smart enough to ask, but also made suggestions to improve the affordability. Final result was an fantastic experience not only at Victoria Falls, but Hwange National Park and Matopos as well. The amount and variety of wildlife I was amazing. And the lodging at Vic Falls (Batonka Lodge), Hwange (Ivory Lodge), and Matopos (Amalinda Lodge) was well beyond anything I was expecting. The service was amazing: they truly do anticipate your needs before you think to ask. With Mark's suggestions, the trip was more affordable than I had expected and everything went according to plan. I have nothing but positive to convey about the entire trip.

World class operator
This was my fourth safari, and my favorite one. From day one, Christelle and Gondwana proved invaluable. She was responsive, professional, yet incredibly personable and genuine. She had granular knowledge and opinions on each safari destination and accommodation, and took thoughtful care to engineer the perfect safari for my fiancé and I. The attention to detail was second to none. It was abundantly clear that she listened and understood our personalities and our safari ambitions. On a personal note, she was instrumental in helping me propose to my fiancé on this trip. Sparing the details - it was a personal and intimate moment, and it would have been impossible without her connections and acumen on/in the region. She subsequently went to grand efforts to make sure that we felt loved and recognized on this trip through various incredibly thoughtful actions. Every trip with Christelle will be unique and I have already been recommending Gondwana and Christelle to my friends and family.

This was my first safari, and everything down to the tiniest detail was amazing. Christelle and Gondwana Tours did the best job at creating a unique and personalized trip for us. There was no need to worry about anything - they were attentive and exceeded at fulfilling our wants. It was a vacation of a lifetime. Our 6 night safari started in Victoria Falls, passed through Chobe, and ended in the Okavango Delta. I'm not used to having so much help with planning and coordinating a trip, and it was such a treat to have everything taken cared of. We were afraid that it could be touristy or cookie cutter, and it ended up being the most thoughtful trip we've ever taken. I cannot recommend Christelle and Gondwana Tours enough.

Perfect Honeymoon - Safari and beach
Steffi Presske and her team from Gondwana tours and safaris planned a magical honeymoon trip for us.
We started of visiting the Victoria Falls, continued to Chobe National Park, then two different camps in the Okavango Delta and ended the trip with a few days at the beach in Mozambique.
The organization was perfect, Steffi took all our special wishes/ ideas into account, she was always good to reach (through email, the German landline or even via Skype or WhatsApp).
The route and the hotels/ lodges/ Camps were chosen very well, and we were especially amazed by the camps in the delta.
The assistance was very good and we can just recommend booking a trip with Gondwana.
It was a great trip :)

Thank you Gondwana for the journey of a lifetime !!! - 100% recommendable
Gondwana Tours & Safaris organized us the trip of a lifetime. We were allowed to fulfill our dream and make a round trip through Tanzania including safari and Zanzibar. The organization of Gondwana, especially by dear Mrs. Steffi Presske, made our trip something very special. Steffi responded to every small adjustment request and always had a suitable solution ready. She always took time for us and was available to us 24/7 during the trip. The choice of accommodations and the on-site safari company in Tanzania were without exception excellent. Our expectations were not only 100% met but exceeded several times. Thank you Gondwana for these great experiences. If we come back it will be with Gondwana Tours & Safari.

I went on a two week photo safari to Zimbabwe that was arranged by GTS ( (Gondwana Tours & Safaris). My trip was originally planned for 4/20 but was put on hold due to the pandemic. Nothing to fear, GTS kept in close contact with me throughout and helped to transition everything to allow for the trip to be completed this year. It involved making some changes and additions to the itinerary, not the least of which was arranging for COVID testing to be completed upon my return to the US. Everything went very smoothly and great communication with GTS staff (Jonathan) was maintained from start to finish. I cannot speak highly enough of how well everything was organized and I would very highly recommend GTS to anyone planning an African safari. 10/5 stars
