An adventure back to nature and experience life.
5/5

The first stop on our adventure was the Ngorongoro volcano. But the most memorable is the second leg of the expedition, the scene of the wildebeests crossing the Mara River. On the other side of the Mara River, a large group of wildebeests and zebras ran from three directions to gather on the river bank, and there were bursts of dust, forming a grand scene under the sun. . . . . Our group stayed at the Nasikia Mobil Migration Camp, which is a little further from the Mara River, but very comfortable. If you return to the camp early, you can enjoy the magnificent sunset with a glass of wine in front of the tent. The service team at the camp is very professional and enthusiastic. This alone also thanks to Organizing team of Discover Africa for careful arrangement.

Their empathic, expert planning delivered a safari to us that truly made our wishes come true.
5/5

While planning our family safari to the Okavango Delta, Chobe end Victoria Falls, with the support of Matthys van Aswegen, I realized that we were in safe hands. During the process of communication about all our concerns, wish list and ever present budget we were treated with the utmost respect. From start to finish our safari wert off without a hitch. During the trip itself the operator saw to it that we were met treated in a very friendly way to make us feel welcome everywhere we moved. The safari was a fantastic experience, way beyond our expectations, that will stay with us for a very long time. I would unreservedly recommend Discover Africa to plan your African safari!

Super efficient, great expertise, quick response and highly knowledgeable of the subject!
5/5

We stayed at the Bushway's camps in Chobe and Khwai River which we well appointed, clean and well stocked. All the staff were efficient and very friendly which made for a most enjoyable stay. Our guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic and delivered a great bush experience with a casual but efficient style. We saw all we wanted to see and then enjoyed their hospitality. We cant wait to repeat the thoroughly enjoyable experience which in retrospect was money well spent!

Megan, our travel agent organized the perfect safari for us.
5/5

After having received the offer via SafariBookings, Megan from DiscoverAfrica suggested a video call to learn more about our expectations. We added two nights at the Victoria Falls and one more night in one of the camps. We got a tailor-made safari and Megan was very helpful fulfilling our wishes and extremely patient answering all our questions. We were also positively surprised when we received a personalized app with detailed travel information about all the places we went to as well as every step of the safari.
We would definitely recommend DiscoverAfrica and book any time again with them.

Megan Warrington was as personable as she was helpful and efficient.
5/5

My wife and I just returned from a three-week adventure in South Africa and Botswana that was custom designed by Megan Warrington of Discover Africa. We could not be more pleased. We arrived in Cape Town where we recovered from the long flight from Boston and leisurely saw the sights including going up Table Mountain, a wine tour, and a visit to the botanical gardens. Our hotel was the V&A and it was top notch, in a perfect location on the waterfront, and we were truly pampered. Next were multiple safaris at Jock Lodge in Kruger National Park. We saw the big five three times in four days (or four if you count seeing the same pride of lions in a different section of the park). The lodge was first class without any airs—our guide was top notch, the staff extremely friendly and can-do, and the meals were over the top. From Kruger it was on to a ten-day mobile tent safari with Letaka, visiting the Okavango Delta (Moremi National Park), Kwai Concession, the Savute Marsh, and finally the Chobe National Park. The tent safari was just that—simple with a bucket shower and pit toilet. But we lacked for nothing—comfortable bed in a stand-up tent, hot water whenever we desired, and the cook was a magician who never duplicated a meal. Our guide’s knowledge as well as his eyesight were mind boggling. One distinct advantage to a tent safari is that there is no fixed schedule. If we saw something interesting (like witnessing a buffalo kill in process) we could take our time. Our guide would radio the cook who would adjust accordingly—no rushing back. The entire trip’s itinerary was perfect in that each stay was like a stepping stone for the next. However, the trip almost never happened because of covid. After Megan designed the trip, covid was in full bloom and we dared not risk travel. She was totally understanding. She kept in touch occasionally over many months. When we finally decided to go for it and had a thousand questions, she would always answer our emails promptly. Between us there were over 70 emails and our relationship seemed to morph into more of a personal one rather than business. My wife and I give Discover Africa and Megan the highest recommendation possible.

Susan was amazing, responsive, thoughtful and helpful.
5/5

Communication with Susan from Discover Africa was EXCELLENT. She was always readily available to answer any questions or concerns. Pricing was a bit on the higher end but you pay for peace of mind, their expertise and knowledge. Reliability was above and beyond. The tour itself was amazing. We did 4 days in a safari in Masai Mara and 4 days in Zanzibar. 2 days of the safari were at Basecamp (by far my favorite because it was very intimate lodge with amazing costumer service from every single one at the lodge). The other 2 days were at Keekorok Lodge (good to see the difference but a bigger lodge that felt like any other bigger hotel change. Not so intimate and costumer service was not up to par to Basecamp). Z hotel in Zanzibar was AMAZING, excellent views specially if you upgrade to a suite.

WOW Trip of a Lifetime
5/5

First and foremost I want to say Thank You Antoinette for helping make our 1st trip to S. Africa all that and more.

I know it took several months to get it booked and you never made me feel like I was bothering you with all my emails asking for itinerary changes and bombarded you with all my questions.

On the contrary, your suggestions were always spot on and the quick response is why everyone needs an experienced Africa Travel Expert like yourself.

With your help, we have the memories of a lifetime and your country and people are BEAUTIFUL and KIND!

I will send you pics of our wonderful stay at Mostwari where we got to see the Big 5 and gorgeous view from Victoria Falls Safari Lodge.

Until next time,
Cary and CE

Best trip EVER!
5/5

I can only begin in one place...and that's with Megan at Discover Africa. She was amazing, throughout the complete planning experience. We made multiple changes to our itinerary (Sorry again, Megan!!) and she took every one of them in stride and was extremely understanding and patient. She is a huge asset to Discover Africa and I can't say enough about her. She's just perfect!

Our trip through Discover Africa was the most memorable trip I've ever taken. We started in Johannesburg, moved to Kruger, followed by Capt Town and then down through Hermanus and Plettenberg Bay. Every step of the journey was perfect. There was not one problem with Discover and that says a LOT, especially when you've booked a 3-week trip, half way around the world.

We will definitely work with Megan again!
