Responsive
4/5

Mpho Thulo was responsive via email (within same day or within 3 working days) and answered all my queries well. I was presented with good options that catered to a wide range of budgets and needs.

We really enjoyed the service and the safari at Bottlierskop Private Reserve! Got up SUPER close to lions, elephants, rhinos, impalas, elands, and many more. The guides were humorous and extremely knowlegeable. Food was excellent. The lodging was gorgeous.

Only room for improvement would be to have gotten confirmation of the driver pick up timings and contact earlier. We had to call the company for it the day before when we didn't hear anything. That said, the driver was EXCELLENT.

A true bucket list experience!
5/5

Our safari trip to Mont Eco Game Reserve was the highlight of our trip to Cape Town. The accommodation was spectacular, the service was fantastic and on the game drives we saw everything there was to see. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone looking for a safari holiday. We stayed for 3 days/2 nights which whilst that felt enough for safari (4 game drives), it didn't feel quite long enough to enjoy all of Mont Eco lodge. The service from Gems of Africa Safari and Tours was also brilliant - they were very responsive to all questions and very proactive in providing recommendations, quotes and answering questions. Highly recommend!

The 4-day Garden Route Tour was amazing and this was largerly due to Benjamin. He was incredibly professional, knowledgable and so passionate about his job. Nothing was too hard. The tour was so much fun and I would recommend it highly. The places we visited was so varied and the Garden Route Lodge a real treat. Enjoy!!

Dependable, Responsive and pleasure to work with
5/5

After obtaining several quotes and inputs from
SafariBookings, I decided to pick up Gems of Africa based on their prompt and detailed response. Mpho was my point of contact and he did an amazing job coordinating and customizing the trip based on our requirements. He responds promptly to emails and available to take calls and answer questions. Right from the day we landed thru the end of the safari, things went smoothly and as was detailed in the itinerary. No surprises, no challenges. Very satisfied and appreciate how well it went.

Bongo was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! And driver Azee perfect in spite of 45 mph cross winds on the Hwy.
5/5

This tour is the BEST! So good, it’s our second time to do it in a year. All wineries superb, Fairview over the top, La Brie - spectacular boutique winery run by a talented woman and her team, with amazing wines and equally amazing area where the wines are made- memorable. Finally Boscheneal is on a beautiful estate and great way to end the day. We had 12 strangers on our tour in the beginning, and the end we were friends and shared many stories through the day . Bongo very knowledgeable and kept us informed along the way- would ask for home again!
