Trip of a lifetime

Monique did an outstanding job in helping us plan this complicated African adventure.
All of the plans were executed with no problems at all far exceeding our expectations.
It made for a most relaxing and exciting trip as we were confident that the trip would proceed smoothly.
She selected excellent tour guides and activities at all levels of participation that were a great fit for our group.
We highly recommend Monique and her colleagues.

great itinerary, wonderful trip

We worked with Monique who customized our tour of Cape Town and the Sabi Sands Safari. The resorts were outstanding, food was terrific, the guides were wonderful and every pickup and drop-off went exactly according to plan. Would highly recommend.

Amazing places, friendly and helpful staff

We booked a trip in Namibia for 4 people. Everything went perfectly well. The places we went to were just amazing. We always got quick and helpful answers from our contacts at Giltedge Africe (formerly Southern Africa Travel).
I would definitely recommend to travel with them

Very good, they advise according to your expectations and budget.

I live in the UK and have now been using Southern Africa Travel (Giltedge) for the last few years  and found them to be very knowledgeable about Safaris, good places to stay and good accommodation. Indeed, all recommendations have been spot on. Communications have generally been good though on occasions a bit of a delay I guess due to workload. On the whole, I would definitely recommend as I have already done so with friends who have used their service recently.

Well planned, well executed trip

We have traveled as a family extensively and were very pleased with the service provided by Giltedge Africa (Southern Africa Travel).  Strong guides, great accommodations, always felt safe and comfortable despite being halfway around the world from home.

City to Safari: Adventure in South Africa

It started in Cape Town, segued to the Garden Route, and culminated at Kariega Private Game Reserve. Over the course of nine days, we experienced incredible cuisine, delightful sites, and The Big Five (well, actually, just The Big Four--still need to return to spot the Wily Leopard!). We had a lot of leeway in the actual daily activities, but the accommodations and transport arranged by Giltedge (Southern African Travel) were top-notch. Each hotel was more amazing than the last. The luxury safari tents at Kariega, in particular, were utterly beyond our wildest expectations. Thank you, SA Travel, for putting the framework in place for our amazing adventure!

Amazing honeymoon

The travel agency really pleasantly surprised us with nice hotels one after the other as we made our way along the garden route. They made it a point to put us up in different types of hotels e.g. Rustic, countryside, elegant, beach resorts, etc. For us to experience the different hospitality services that S Africa has to offer. They also told the hotels that it was our honeymoon and we were treated with such love!

Special mention goes to monique who handled our booking. She was flexible and made really good recommendations, open to changing our booking to address our last minute requirements. She was always friendly and prompt to reply and we were thankful for her high service standards.

I travelled alone, but never felt lonely because the agency took such good care of me!

Communication was fine, accommodations too (everywhere I stayed). The safary had great accommodations, animal sightings, food, etc. Everything was on time. I would definetely return!

The experience of a lifetime. Can we do it again, please??

A friend recommended Southern Africa Travel (Giltedge) to us to help organise our honeymoon. From the moment we contacted Giltedge Africa, we felt included and important in all decisions made. We were consulted on each step of our trip and all enquiries from us were dealt with in a timely, courteous and professional manner.
All our transfers, accommodation and pre-booked tours were expertly organised, which allowed us to relax completely on our holiday. All services provided were entirely efficient and professional with an individual touch, making us feel quite important :)
The safari tour in Sabi Sands game reserve was the highlight of our trip. From the moment we arrived at Savanna Lodge until it came for time to leave, we had what can only be described as an unforgettable experience. The level of service was extraordinary and every little thing you could possibly need was catered for. Without a doubt the most fantastic place we have ever stayed.
Southern Africa Travel comes highly recommended, with good reason!
They fully deserve a 10/10 review.
