  • Frances, first of all again thank you (and your team) for putting together such a memorable trip, the memories will certainly stay with us. The accommodation was excellent, but we would single out Rothman Manor, The Plettenberg and Kwandwe as our favourites. To have a bottle of bubbly everywhere we stayed was a real treat, and to top it all, when the staff at Kwandwe came in singing happy birthday in both English and Afrikaans with such a gorgeous cake, that was really special. Thank you again Frances, you are a shining star and a credit to the company that is lucky enough to have you employed with them.

Dear Rob and Bill, we had the most amazing time in SA. You made the whole thing simplicity itself from the early telephone conversations and advice to the “Vamoos app” and wallet you supply containing all relevant information. Your choices of hotels and lodges were spot on as were the transfers you arranged; the road transfer from Kwandwe to PE was faultless but I must admit that the air transfer on that private jet from Plettenberg fulfilled a childhood dream! Kwandwe was amazing and exactly what we were looking for, we have some amazing photographs and memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you so much for making the whole experience so amazing and the booking process so easy when it could have easily been rather daunting trying to decide where to go.

Rob, as I suspected, the "game" portion of the trip was anti-climatic after seeing the great migration, but we still saw lots of game. Makanyi was great, the staff couldn't have been nicer, the amenities and service, great. Great choice for the area. Cape Grace was, likewise, a great choice. Certainly one of the nicer hotels we have stayed in. Again, the staff were gracious and helpful. Leeu House was also a good choice though I am not sold on spending two nights in the wine country. Great food but I'm getting to the point, I guess, that we have seen so many "vineyards", that the novelty has worn off. River Club was just okay--great location, lovely views, a bit tired. Overall, it really was a great trip, Africa really is a special place. Thanks for your help.

Hi Rob, our Safari in the Madikwe and time in Cape Town were both outstanding. When people ask about our Safari, I tell people it was our best family vacation yet. I’ve been an expat for 15 years and my family is well travelled, so that's quite a comment. I highly rate the quality of The Bush House and thanks so much for the recommendation. Having a private vehicle also really added to the experience. The guide was superb and great with our kids. Four full days really seemed like the right amount of time. The small size of the lodge, staffs treatment of our kids, and the facilities really made us feel ‘at home.’ Cape Town and the surrounding area are beautiful as you know. Our driver to and from the Bush House was actually Ian Johnson, a guide and tour company owner himself. He shared insights and recommendations and was much more than just the driver. I see another Safari in our future. I will definitely contact you when its time. Thanks much

Hi Frances, we are still desperately trying to hold onto that holiday feeling! The tan, however is fading! Kings Camp was stunning - we had such a warm welcome. Everything about it was perfect, the staff who work at the camp all have their own personality whilst delivering a first class service - the facilities are first rate, a fantastic spa and a gym! The Wi-Fi worked better than our Wi-Fi in Cape Town! The game viewing was incredible - we saw the big 5 in the first 3 drives and was lucky enough to see wild dogs and twice witnessed leopards with their kill. The surprises kept coming... One night we came back from our drive and they had arranged for private dining on our room veranda, complete with a hot bath they had already run with candles all around it. A full on braai one night in a different outdoor dining area with us all sat in a semi circle - great to mix up the setting whilst being able to mix more with other guests. A surprise bush breakfast one morning where they took us to a site with tables and chairs, full cook area and a proper luxury outdoor loo! We can’t thank you enough for such an incredible trip, we are hooked - we are thinking next trip may be Botswana! Which we would naturally come to you for. Thanks again.

Frances, I just wanted to say thank you to you and your team for all your help with our recent safari vacation. We had a spectacular time and thoroughly enjoyed the entire trip! Kenya was just amazing and my daughters fell in love with the country. The trip to Devil's Pool was out of this world. Everything was just perfect and we already want to go back. Thanks so much.

Rob, thanks for your Welcome Home note. Overall, it was an excellent trip. La Plume and Savanna were the stand-out stars without question. And if we chose one of those 2, then clearly Savanna would be the absolute best. Janice wrote in the book that we arrived as clients and left as friends. Quite brilliant. All the best and thanks for fixing what was, and always will be, a memorable trip.
Clive and Janice from Rutland travelled to South Africa

Hello Mary, thank you so much for arranging Tanda Tula for us which was every bit as fantastic as when Julie and I were there sixteen years ago. It was lovely to see some of the same staff too! We had a wonderful time and the two in our party who had not done safari before were completely in awe. I will be in touch again when I have saved for the next adventure!
Sue, Derek & Sam from Staffordshire travelled to South Africa along with four friends

November 2017

Hi Frances, just wanted to say a massive thank you to you for our amazing holiday. We loved every moment of our holiday. Each base was so diversely different so there was no time to be bored with a place, but new discoveries were always there to be had. The safari was out of this world. We saw the ‘big five’ and so much more. Waterberry Lodge was also a highlight for me. It was so serene and relaxing after our early mornings on safari.

October 2017

Dear Michele, in short, the trip was simply fabulous and exceeded most (if not all) our expectations. Much of the itinerary was just perfect and it is difficult to envisage how it might have been bettered. We want to thank you for all your hard work in customising our trip and making this such a wonderful holiday. Thank you too for responding so quickly and effectively to our delayed outward flight and onward travel rearrangements. This all proceeded without a further hitch and we were able to quickly forget about the rather stressful start to the holiday. Once again, many thanks.
Neil and Sue from Surrey travelled to South Africa and Botswana

September 2017

Dear Rob, The holiday was wonderful and the arrangements, as always, were perfect. Thank you! The itinerary was so varied and interesting - stunning flowers, arid desert, gentle blue lagoons, wild Atlantic, remote locations, spectacular landscapes, amazing game drives, walks, sunshine...! What more could we ask for? Thank you again for another memorable holiday
Richard and Pamela from Leicester travelled to South Africa

August/September 2017

Hi Michele, Thank you so much for arranging an excellent holiday. In terms of Safari Consultants and your service, particularly, I cannot fault anything!!! It has been 5-star all the way. We would certainly come back to you again on our next African trip.
Stephen, Fui Ling and Tristram from Surrey travelled to South Africa

August 2017

Dear Frances, we had a fabulous time - Lavender Manor in Hermanus was my favourite, I loved the fact that you could walk to the beach and there was a lovely walk along the coast to a very nice restaurant "Lizette's" that we particularly enjoyed. Also Betty's Bay was lovely and we saw several whales when we went whale watching. Blackheath Lodge at Cape Town has a very warm and friendly atmosphere and the staff were excellent, the room had a balcony looking out across the city to the sea. We climbed Table Mountain and went to Robben Island. Bakubung Lodge was also very nice with excellent staff, we were very lucky on the game drives, the driver we had was particularly good at finding the animals. We had the most amazing time, the views were spectacular, everyone was friendly and professional, the Braai evening we went to at Pilanesberg provided the unexpected surprise of African Singers and dancers - fabulous! Thank you for a very special holiday.

Hi Frances, well that’s me back home again after the most amazing trip ever. Everything went to plan and I can’t praise the Kambaku teams enough. They were fantastic. Thank you so much for all your help and assistance in what has been the best holiday of my life. I will definitely be returning to Kambaku. Thank you so much again Frances for everything and I honestly can’t recommend both you and the Kambaku Lodges high enough.

Hi Frances. The main reason we decided on Safari Consultants was the attention to detail given in your responses to our quite thorough brief and the confidence given by the local knowledge of all of the options we were offered. The choice of Mashatu Tented Camp was perfect for us to experience the feeling of being in the bush without actually camping out. An amazing experience hearing the wildlife close by through the night. Watching the elephants at the waterhole whilst having dinner was magical. The setting and the people at Mashatu made for an authentic intimate Botswana experience. Kambaku again was perfect for what we were looking for. The thatched villas were luxurious and very well spread out over the grounds. A real sense of space. Of course Kambaku is a different experience to Mashatu, it is South Africa and not Botswana. The game drives were excellent. Some of the sundowner stops at Kambaku were stunning. The night skies at dusk were breath taking. In fact with the help of lions visiting over dinner, we saw the big five in the first afternoon and evening. What can we say about Victoria Falls. There is a very good reason it is one of the seven natural wonders of the world. To experience the power and beauty was very moving. Clive was brilliant and made this a memorable experience. The Zambezi sunset cruise was a marvellous end to what was a trip of a lifetime. The boat was excellent and staff brilliant and the sunset, unforgettable. With the benefit of hindsight would we have changed anything?.....No, and I think that says it all. So a very big thank you to you Frances and everybody at Safari Consultants and your African partners. It is quite remarkable that such a complex schedule went without a hitch. A compliment to all involved.

June 2017

Dear Mary, we had a wonderful time and the accommodation you selected for us was superb; absolutely faultless and I know had I tried to organise the trip myself it would not have been as special. The people we encountered were so hospitable and generous and the quality of the accommodation really was 4 star. Thank you very much. It’s hard to say that we enjoyed any one particular bit more than another. I would say there is at least one special thing about each place we stayed, and of course the game drives were a truly wonderful way to end the trip. They were particularly enjoyed by Oliver (who learnt an awful lot about tracking). I just wanted to personally thank you for your assistance, guidance and fantastic service. I’d have no hesitation in recommending Safari Consultants to any of my friends.
Kevin, Tracey, Ian and Oliver from Kent travelled to South Africa

April 2017

Dear Rob, it was a terrific experience and Tanda Tula was absolutely spot on for what we were looking for - extremely comfortable, very well run and with excellent food, delightful staff, a great atmosphere and very good guides, who were particularly sensitive to the welfare of the animals. Thank you so much for the recommendation. We saw the big 5 and plenty more. At Le Paradis, the modernised rooms are very comfortable and the hotel continues to offer great facilities. We had a really memorable holiday and we are very grateful to you for your great help in putting it together for us.
Oliver, Cara, Theo, Olivia & Ottilie from Hampshire travelled to South Africa and Mauritius

Dear Rob, perfectly satisfied with the service of Safari Consultants. Value for money, very good for the standards we received and next time we look at Africa I'll give you a call!

Dear Frances, just an email to say a belated thank you for helping us organise our honeymoon. We had an absolutely amazing time! The combination of three different venues worked brilliantly and we felt like it really was a holiday of a lifetime.
Liz and Anselm from London travelled to South Africa and Tanzania on honeymoon

January 2017

Rob, many thanks for organising a great trip for us. Pretty much everything worked like clockwork. Mashatu tented camp was very good. Excellently run with fantastic staff, very professional and friendly, food top notch too. Game viewing was still good despite the grass being high. We did see wild dogs on our first day. Leopards usually allude us too but our excellent guide Richard found 2 in three days for us. We loved the tents, large comfortable and well appointed with great bathrooms but our only criticism of the whole camp would be that there was no view / aspect. You were right about Tswalu, it was absolutely fabulous! Again guides can make or break the experience and we had an excellent guide Warren Pearson. Everything about Tswalu was top notch and you have now spoilt us for the future. Sadly no pangolin or aardvark but got very close to Hartmann's zebra, and the first brown hyena I have seen. Meerkats were fascinating and I could have sat with them all day. Many thanks again Rob, just loved it!
Caroline from Suffolk travelled to South Africa and Botswana

February/March 2017

Dear Michele, this was a fantastic trip that exceeded our expectations. We cannot thank you enough for your expert advice, guidance and suggestions based on your all round knowledge. This was our 3rd holiday with Safari Consultants that has never failed to deliver a first class service from beginning to end. It is a pleasure working through proposals and options with you that result in holidays to remember for a lifetime. Our thanks again and look forward to working with you again in the future. Good luck and best wishes. P.S. Josie - thank you for assisting in re-uniting us with our purse!
John and Gail from Buckinghamshire travelled to South Africa

January/February 2017

Dear Frances, just to let you know that the trip went off without a hitch; it was a truly wonderful experience and will always be fondly remembered. The Letaka mobile safari was something of a highlight because our guide “Nkosi” was a true star. He was so passionate about the bush and all it has to offer. He was very considerate, a safe driver and had the most encyclopaedic knowledge of all the mammals and birds. He could answer every question going. He was also able to interpret the animal behaviour to track animals and find them. Quite outstanding. Our 7 days with him resulted in some emotional “goodbyes” when he saw us off from Xakanaxa airstrip for the finale at Vumbura Plains. That was a superlative end to the holiday and we agreed it was the best accommodation and “service” experience we have ever encountered anywhere in the world. Another highlight were the “Safari Brothers” – Grant and Brent Reed – turning up at Maun to greet us off our flight back from Vumbura. Rather beyond the call of duty but it was great to speak to them about our time in the Kalahari and the Moremi with Nkosi and how good the support team were led by Mousa the bush chef. Many thanks for putting together what will be remembered as a trip of a life time.
David, Sarah, Nick and Rachel from Leicestershire travelled to South Africa and Botswana

January 2017

Dear Rob, the entire trip was a thorough success and every aspect of it was most enjoyable, largely thanks to yourself for organising it. Glen Avon Lodge was very comfortable with lovely gardens in an ideal setting. Oystercatcher Lodge was fantastic, brilliantly situated on the beach with wonderfully hospitable hosts. Fullham Lodge was ideally situated away from the bustle of Camps Bay, but in easy reach of it. Dwyka Tented Lodge was fantastic. The guiding was superb and the general staff very attentive. The game was diverse and interesting, if not as dense as in other parts of Southern Africa. We had two wonderful encounters with cheetah on foot. Again many thanks and we hope to travel again with you in the near future.

November 2016

Hello Rob, All you really need to know is....that it was the best holiday we have ever had, all of us felt this way. Simply stunning locations with fabulous service and plenty of fun to be had. We're all aching to go back. True desert island paradise at Denis Island and then Etali Safari Lodge and Tuningi were the perfect places to introduce the children to Safari which they absolutely loved. Cheesy as it sounds we have made some truly incredible family memories that will last us a lifetime. Thank you - you gave us everything and more than we could have hoped for; it was a brilliant itinerary with top organisation. To have everything so well thought through and organised by someone we totally trust really put us all at ease. Thanks again for an absolute cracker!

Dear Michele, you arranged a most amazing holiday for us, our two children, their spouses and five grandchildren to Cape Town, Gaborone and Madikwe.

Rob, returned from a great holiday last night. Things went really well. Super impressed with you and the business. Felt from the beginning that you spent enough time chatting around what we were looking for and had loads of suggestions and useful advice. From there the admin and the interaction was really professional and ultimately it all worked like clockwork.

Dear Jane, just finishing breakfast in the courtyard at Auberge Clermont on the last day of the best holiday of our lives. Superlatives don't come close...but perfect, stupendous, spectacular are getting there. Everything has been just perfect - down to the last and finest details: thanks so much for organising a quite wonderful trip. The safari was brilliant - we saw everything and Tanda Tula camp and team were fab. Glen Avon was so smart and friendly. Mosselberg was spectacular. That room! That view! And we did get to see (just two, but enough) some whales. Then Franschhoek to end it tram a perfect way to see the vineyards (hic!) We plan to amble back via Richard Branson's place then Stellenbosch en route to the Airport. As you inferred at the beginning, we will certainly be back as well as evangelists for Safari Consultants hereon in. Thanks again.

August 2016

Hi Frances, got back from Africa this morning and thought I’d drop you a quick email to say thanks for putting it together. Everything worked perfectly and we had an amazing time. nThambo was great with us seeing all the “big 5” plus many other things. Bayete was a great base from which to see Vic Falls and was very pleasant. The surprise for me was Imbabala. When you sent me the itinerary I thought Imbabala might be the weakest of the locations offering not that much and was worried the kids might be bored. I couldn’t have been more wrong. We were all blown away by the place and thought it was fantastic with some great activity options and so relaxing. The staff were amazing too. I would have no hesitation recommending your services to anyone and would also recommend highly all three locations you booked for us.

May we thank you for a wonderful holiday which ended last week. All the arrangements were spot-on including travel pick-ups and transfers. Great planning by yourselves! Thank you also for your intervention when our planned homeward flight was cancelled at Windhoek, Air Namibia staff were hopeless but we made progress with your help and also from the brilliant Wilderness Safaris staff based at the airport. Without your combined efforts, we might still be there. Thanks again!

The Safari Consultants Team (specifically Frances and Josie whom I worked with) was simply outstanding. Their incredible level of knowledgeable, kindness, efficiency and accessibility was superior to none. Their degree of understanding of the various options and ability to describe the differences between lodge options and areas to consider was invaluable for a first time South Africa safari goer. To the Safari Consultants Team, THANK YOU for making our first Safari a memorable, amazing once in a life time experience, looking forward to planning the next one with you!
Isabelle from Boston travelled to South Africa

March 2016

Hi Michele, we had a wonderful time - thank you. All three locations were excellent in very different ways. Tswalu was amazing - the pinnacle was chasing a pack of wild dogs hunting over rough ground for many miles and them finally bringing down a red hearty beast right in front of us. Leeu House was lovely and can be totally recommended. Bushmans Kloof was very comfortable. Lovely room, good food and a really amazing location - just what we hoped. Overall a magnificent trip which we thoroughly enjoyed and your selections and organisation were perfect. Transfers all smooth and easy. Thanks again for a wonderful trip!

Hi Frances, just wanted to let you know what a fabulous holiday we had! Glen Avon was so lovely, it was everything you said it would be. They were helpful, friendly and the place was beautiful. All the pickups you arranged were on time and the drivers were very informative and we felt completely at ease which is good for a first visit anywhere. Going to Nottens Bush Camp was brilliant. We had the most fantastic time, and no-one can believe just how much we saw in that short space of time. Fantastic people, so many stories and all in a beautiful setting. We felt completely safe at all times, maybe because we were looked after so well. I cannot thank you enough for making this holiday such a pleasure from start to finish. The whole process of you and Rob talking me through everything and your recommendations were spot on. Ian thoroughly enjoyed it all too, said it was the best holiday he had had. Even talking about a return trip!
Carol and Ian from Suffolk travelled to South Africa

December 2015

Hi Frances, We had such a fantastic honeymoon! We loved Blackheath; the staff were really friendly and helpful with booking tickets and printing off maps etc. The room was lovely and the breakfasts delicious! We really enjoyed our time in Cape Town, can't wait to go back! At Auberge Burgundy we had a really lovely big room with a balcony that we could watch the whales and dolphins from! The small pool area was nice and the restaurant opposite where breakfast was served was really good. We really liked Hermanus, lots of nice restaurants. The drive to Franschhoek was stunning, we had lots of photos stops! When we arrived at Auberge Clermont we were really blown away, the backdrop was beautiful and we loved being able to walk around the vines. The reception staff were really knowledgeable and helpful with the restaurants and where to go. Our room had a really nice homely feel to it, would love to go back here. Raffles was amazing, we've never been anywhere like it. The beach was beautiful as was the pool area. Every part of the hotel really was just perfect. Le Domaine de L'Orangeraie was a nice hotel with a lovely pool area and spacious rooms. The bikes were great and we enjoyed cycling around, the island was beautiful. Overall we had a fantastic time, we saw some amazing places and would thoroughly recommend the trip to everyone. Thank you so much for organising an amazing honeymoon that we will never forget.

Hi Frances, I just wanted to say thank you for matching us up with the Nottens Bush Camp, we had a wonderful time. It was a truly memorable week and we managed to finally see a leopard (something which had eluded us on all previous safaris). In fact we saw leopards most days, so we were very spoilt. The whole experience was tremendous and I will certainly be in touch again whenever I want to go on another safari. Again thanks for your spot on recommendation plus outstanding professionalism and efficiency throughout.

If you wanted to look for something to moan about, you would not be able to do so. Every aspect was truly amazing. The staff (all) at the lodge were so professional and friendly. My wife and I would recommend both yourself and the lodge to anybody. Robert Slater was so helpful to us.
David and Helen from Leicestershire celebrated their Golden wedding anniversary in South Africa

October 2015

Hi Rob, we had a superb time, Rissington Inn was extra interesting because the Rissingtons, after which it was named, are not far from us here in the Cotswolds and we understood the relevance of the pictures of American bombers! The highlights of the trip were the wild dogs and all the game that we saw, especially the pair of Honey Badgers that we saw out foraging in broad daylight in the Kruger, what a treat, never seen them before or expected to. Altogether a very good, stress free holiday, many thanks for your planning and organising.

Dear Rob, I just wanted to say a massive thanks for delivering a great holiday - you fulfilled my brief perfectly, and exceeded all our expectations. All arrangements, transfers and accommodation were like clockwork, no concerns at all. We liked that Elephant Plains and Muchenje arranged for us to have the same guides throughout our stay, as this greatly enhances the relationships and communication. Elephant Plains was a great location, great food & great staff. Morné Fouche our guide was very professional - we loved the drives and game walks with him. Over 3 days we saw 7 different leopard, 4 different rhino and a big herd of buffalo, 800-1000 strong which Morné managed to park just ahead of, then they flowed all around the vehicle for 20-30 mins as they passed, unforgettable. Muchenje - great atmosphere, felt like home from home, fantastic location on the escarpment overlooking the floodplain. We enjoyed the full day out with boat trip, picnic lunch then a game drive back along the Chobe waterfront, with hundreds of elephant, buffalo, zebra & sable. We got a fantastic front row view of a lion hunt by a pride of 10 lions. Waterberry Lodge was a great end to the holiday - fantastic location and good food. We enjoyed the sunset cruise, fishing, hippos on the lawn and bird watching. So relaxing to just chill on the banks of the Zambezi. The visit to the Falls was great. We have great photos and great memories - thank you. We now have lots of ideas for return trips, and will not hesitate to contact you.
