Michelle set up a perfect holiday for us! We had a great time.

We went with high expectations and they were exceeded really quickly. The lodges were great and all the staff were really nice, the guides and trackers were really enthusiastic and great fun. Every bit of food we ate was also absolutely top drawer. The transfers were also surprisingly fun, Reithe, our driver was full of info about the game reserves, the local area and much more. From the moment we landed in Hoedspruit Airport until we got back there everything was handled really well for us, it couldn't have been better organized.

Choose this touroperator!

Michelle from Explore & Travel Africa organized an incredible trip for us that fully met our wishes! Prior to the trip she arranged various "zoom" meetings to get our wishes completely clear within our budget. We advise anyone who wishes to make such a roundtrip (Namib and Botswana) to use the experience of Explore & Travel Africa!

We had an outstanding trip to South Africa, and we could not have done this without Michelle's great organization of our trip. From the game drives to the wine tours around Cape Town, the trip was an absolute blast.

We had the trip of a lifetime which was effortless and seamless because of Explore and Travel Africa

Michelle from Explore and Travel Africa was amazing. She organised everything for us and the trip was absolutely seamless. We didn't have to think about anything as she organised it all. She was also very flexible to our needs.

Explore and Travel Africa provided all of the information we needed for the trip so it was easy. We didn't know much about South Africa or safaris so we didn't even know where to start and were a little bit nervous, but it was obvious from the first interaction that she had lots of experience and suggested the best accommodation and services based on what we were looking for and our budget. We had lots of questions and she was very helpful and responsive every time. We requested lots of quotes from other tour operators and hers was the best value for money. She also gave us an option for doing 2 nights in one place and 2 nights in another which other companies didn't suggest. We took this option and we are so glad we did!

I would 100% recommend this company.

Great tour operators present with the options to pick from and ones that match your expectations.

Very promotion and careful communication, focusing on the need of the customer and not selling off the shelf tours. I m really happy with the services by Michelle

Michelle and the Explore & Travel Africa team exceeded expectations in every way. My wife, her family (10 people total) and I visited South Africa in March 2022 and Michelle planned the perfect 5-day safari holiday at Simbavati Hilltop for the family. She handled everything including pricing for the trip, communication with the lodge, one-way flights from Cape Town to the safari location, transfer from the airport to the lodge and outbound transfers and flights from Johannesburg back to the US. The lodge itself was 5-star and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for luxury yet authentic safari experience. Let Michelle handle all of your safari travel planning - it will save you countless hours of research!

Experts in high end tailor made tours

My name is Velislav Mitovski and I am a keen wildlife photographer and explorer. So far I have been in more than 50 countries in 5 continents.
I have been using Explore & Travel Africa several times, always requesting some complex to organize trips, sometimes crossing several countries and they proved to be reliable partner. Last time they organized my trip to South Africa. It was tailored made tour, combining exploring the country, shark cage diving and game sarari. Everyting was exactly as I imagined it, the whole trip passed with zero issues, I was literally not thinking for other than enjoying the experience. Surely I will rely on Explore & Travel Africa in the future and I highly recommend them to anyone that is planning a trip in Africa.

Michelle made planning our trip so easy and arranged a trip that far exceeded our expectations

My husband and I travelled to the Serengeti for our 10 year wedding anniversary in August 2022. Michelle from Explore and Travel Africa made the planning so easy and helped arrange the most unforgettable trip. She listened to all our wants and found the camps that best suited our needs while staying within our budget. We stayed in the Nomad camps starting in the Ngorongoro crater which was so unique and spectacular, a must see. Their rooms have everything you need for a very comfortable stay. It got windy and cold in the evenings so be sure to pack something warm. Then we flew up to the northern Serengeti staying in the Lamai Nomad Camp. The rooms were very large, luxurious and private. I can’t rave enough about the staff and their attention to detail, friendliness and always willing to help with anything you might need or want during your stay. The food in both camps was absolutely delicious. We were served traditional Tanzanian food a few times and you will not be disappointed, soooo good. The guides in both camps were very professional and knowledgeable. I am lucky enough to have been on safari a few times in other African countries and I was so impressed. This was a trip of a lifetime for us and we had very high expectations. Michelle continued great communication during the trip making travel days between camps easy and stress free. I would highly recommend both the service of Michelle from Explore and Travel Africa and the Nomad group of camps.

An Unforgettable Safari to Sabi Sands

Hi Michelle

We are back home in London and wanted to say thank you so very much for putting together such an unforgettable safari. Everything went smoothly, the flights and transfers all seamless. So thank you for organising everything so efficiently. We absolutely loved Silvan Safari, our room was gorgeous. We had amazing animal sightings and the staff were great.

You were right, safaris are addictive and we cannot wait for our next trip with you!

Thanks again
Alistair and Michelle
