A fantastic trip to South Africa and Mauritius

Vanessa from Greatest Africa was a great partner, and helped a lot in the planning and the execution of our vacation. We felt safe all the way, and enjoyed here knowledge of hotels and areas.

Truly mazing!

I worked with Vanessa and was so greatfull for her personal touch! All communication was as if I was talking to a friend. She followed through with all our needs, budget and crazy flexable schedule! I would recommend anyone using her or Richard as its not easy planning an African Safari from the states and being able to chat with these experts was so helpful! Thanks Vanessa!!!

Personal and efficient service.

Our experience with Greatest Africa was the perfect culmination of a visit to South Africa. The travel arrangements organised by Greatest Africa were seamless - everything working well and on time. The game reserve selected was excellent and we were well received and entertained throughout.

Special 20th Wedding Anniversary Trip

This was a special family holiday to celebrate an anniversary and I wanted it to be special - Richard, Vanessa and the team exceeded every expectation.
I gave Richard a rough outline of what we wanted to do/see, a guide budget and they did the rest. The communication with us from start to finish was outstanding; at no time did we feel uncertain about any of the arrangements and we got the impression Richard was really thinking about how he could tailor something exactly for us. The video/online itinerary he prepared was a brilliant way to share with the family where we were going and what we would be doing.
The hotels he selected for us for amazing; exactly what we had hoped for - luxurious, great locations, welcoming and not stuffy; real home away from home. The Cape Grace, particularly, is an amazing place to spend some time; the nicest people who knew our names from the moment we arrived.
The whole time we were in Africa, Richard and Vanessa were on the end of the phone/Whatsapp when we needed them with restaurant recommendations, tips on what do (we had a couple of days when the weather wasn't great and had time to kill), places not to miss etc - Richard is also a great wine lover and can be relied upon for a great recommendation.
All the travel around the Cape was seamless with "Steve The Driver", who is the nicest guy on the Cape, with great knowledge and stories on where were were and where to go.
When we went up to Vic Falls, Richard's knowledge of the trips to do and his organisational abilities were amazing; the Rhino walk, the white water rafting, the helicopter out of the gorge, the sunset Zambezi cruise, where do you stop? The River Club on the Zambezi is fabulous; like nowhere I've ever been - it's like stepping back 50 years, bespoke personal service with a huge smile.
All in all a fabulous holiday of a lifetime, made so much more special with the knowledge and care of Greatest Africa - thank you so much.

Gateway to wonderment

I had identified the lodge that I wanted to stay at and asked Greatest Africa to make the necessary arrangements for our special trip. They were more than happy to do so even though the lodge was not in their portfolio. Everything was seamless.

Excellent communication, Vanessa of Greatest Africa put an itinerary together with all details checked off from flights, transfers, safari camps spanning from Cape Town, Botswana, onto Zambezi Queen & Victoria Falls. Fantastic adventure!!

Professional booking agent with good communications with clients.

Loved our Safari staying at Hamiltons and Hoyo Hoyo lodges and then on to Cape Town. All organised and carried out professionally. Top quality service and matching game drives. Could not be faulted!!!!

Amazing Safari Experience - 9 nights / 10 days in 3 lodges around Kruger (South Africa)

I was very satisfied by the level of service provided by Greatest Africa in helping me finding the right lodges to meet my expectations. The 3 were at the same time very different, providing diversity in the experiences and safaris offered but still very luxurious with amazing and caring staffs.
All internal flights and transfers had been booked in advance.
Throughout my trip, everything went very smoothly and I did not have to worry about a thing. All transfers arrived on time (usually even in advance in case I wanted to leave earlier) and the chauffeurs from the company Greatest Africa had chosen were all very friendly and helpful (going out of their way to make me happy).
Overall the standard of the trip was very good and I am perfectly satisfied with the experience. Definitely worth my money and would recommend it.
