The perfect "bucket list" trip ever.

We had always wanted to experience South Africa and do "The Big 5" game park stay. We looked at booking locally from Australian companies but they all seemed so expencive and didntgive us the experience we wanted in a small personal tour without breaking the bank. During my searches of the internet i discovered Greatest Africa, a local SA company specialising in tailor made trips.
Vanessa was amazing from start to finish, some 3 years ago i had my 3rd throat cancer surgery leaving me unable to eat any food via my mouth and all meals need to be pureed to a fine liquid somi can tube feed via a PEG.
Vanessa was able to understand my needs and after knowing what type of high powered blender was needed she was able to book us into an amazin hotel in Capetown and 2 x 5 star game lodges with the correct blender to make all my meals.
My wife said it was her best holiday ever, the game lodges were perfect, the food amazing and the total experience and game drives ons to remember forever.
Thankyouever so much for our mazing holiday and for your personal and profestional service.
Highly recomended to all, not just us "Tubies"

Great tours in South Africa.

We have used Greatest Africa several times during our visits to South Africa. It's easy to communicate with them and always good suggestions and quick answers to our requests and questions. They have a very good software generating your itinerary with good tourist information.

Each time we take a vine tour with Rickard. Then we have come to very nice wine tastings at the best vineyards. We have also visited some very interesting cultural places of interest.

The hotels we have been booked at have been of the highest class and very varied. Central in Hermanus, where you could see the whales from the balcony. Nice vineyards, where you had very good wine and food. Far out in the wilderness, where the antelopes passed a few meters from the tables when we finished the dessert. Central in Cape Town, where it's very close to Waterfront.

I can really recommend Greatest Africa for a nice vacation in South Africa.

A great all-round experience down memory lane

Having spent my youth in South Africa, I returned with a group of friends for my 70th birthday. The 2-week stay in the Cape was terrific. Greatest Africa contributed significantly for a pleasant stay in the Stellenbosch Winelands, a 3-day game safari a 3 hours drive from Cape Town, all culminating with several days in CT itself : a unique city & setting with incredible diversity. Greatest Africa provided a very attentive & responsive service that resulted in a highly successful trip. They understood our needs & found solutions in all situations.

Back in Sweden after a marvellous trip and stay in South Africa, I like to give you full marks for professional arrangements and your choice of accommodation. All in all many thanks for your arrangements. Ever since 1975 we feel Africa is Greatest!

We are back in Canada and dealing with jet lag, but just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful trip that you arranged for us! Richard did an amazing wine tour for us, and the hotels you arranged were fabulous! We loved Majeka, and O on the Kloof was funky and fun to stay at - we just wished we'd had more time to stay at both! We'll definitely recommend you for friends visiting and we will be back in a couple of years too! Thanks for everything.

Winter Sun

We had the most wonderful couple of weeks in SA organised by Greatest Africa, covering Cape Town, Kruger and Franschhoek; with fishing, riding and wine tours all organised with their expertise. Greatest Africa were always on hand to assist day and night, and went the extra mile to make our holiday as memorable as possible. Highly recommended.

Safari, Vic Falls and Cape Town - Trip of a lifetime

From first contact with Vanessa we had excellent service and she was extremely patient as we tweaked the itinerary a number of times and asked numerous questions. The choice of venues was excellent - perfect for our needs. In particular Motswari Game Reserve was outstanding with so many memorable experiences and 'encounters' with the big 5 and so much more. All the transfers were seamless and everything operated like clockwork - completely hassle and stress free. We would unreservedly recommend Greatest Africa and Vanessa who put together such a brilliant itinerary for us.

Our honeymoon was seamless!

Greatest Africa helped us have a seamless honeymoon from start to finish. We had originally made reservations at 3 different accommodations ourselves, but Greatest Africa offered to take over our itinerary for us so that rather than us having to confirm with three different hotels, they instead did all the confirmations for us. As well, we were able to schedule excursions and transfers with them which made our transition from the craziness of our wedding, to the ignorance of traversing another country, that much more relaxing and enjoyable. Vanessa's communication was prompt and professional, including scheduling a last minute excursion we inquired about. There was a small mishap in regards to which days we were at which accommodation but Greatest Africa fully understood their mistake and was quick to give us complementary airport transfers to make up for this. THAT is top notch service and keeps customers coming back. We will definitely use Greatest Africa again if we do decide to come back to South Africa, and have already recommended our friends to do the same.

Thank you for making our honeymoon so memorable!

First Visit to Game Reserve

After visiting SA for several years we decided that it was time for a game drive. We booked Lion's Valley through Safari Bookings dealing with Vanessa. Vanessa sourced the right setting and cost for our requirements. She was attentive and knowledgeable and I would recommend this company wholeheartedly. Would definately use this company again, all went according to plan.

Many thanks for your rating. We specialise in 4-5* luxury African vacations and you are correct in saying that the properties you enjoyed were at the upper end of the market, particularly The Outpost. It's also worth noting that an african safari is one of the most expensive holiday experiences in the world. Greatest Africa prides itself on our knowledge and service, as well as the portfolio of hotels and lodges we carefully select and offer to our clients. We hope you return to Africa and can be of assistance in the future to create an itinerary more suited to our budget.
With best regards,
Richard Hilton, Founding MD
