We have just returned from a fantastic 19 day trip to South Africa and Zimbabwe.What an amazing experience. From the moment we arrived we were met and transferred with effortless precision. Our accommodation surpassed expectations, the food was amazing and the attention to detail, second to none. Cathy suggested we travel on Rovos Rail and that was an amazing trip. I had never thought of train travel before.. can't wait to do another! The camps we stayed in were luxurious, extremely comfortable and so exciting - Elephants wandering past your front door was an everyday occurrence. We saw the big 5, several times over and the guides we had were informative, courteous and very professional. Prior to going, Cathy designed a trip that suited our group of 4 to a tee! All our questions were clarified promptly and we were never left wondering. If you are considering and African holiday I would definitely recommend Destinations Africa for a trouble free and personalised holiday! I extend a special thanks to Cathy for being our travel manager! Sue Peterie

Rick and I have been to Africa 3 times over the past 6 years. Destinations Africa have been amazing in planning our trips to suit price, places we wish to go and suggesting the most fabulous Private Game reserves. Christa went out of her way to accommodate our needs and we have always found that each trip has been seamless with arranging pick ups, flights, luggage care and finding new and exciting Private Game reserves. The accommodation is always fantastic and we have never had any worries during our time away. Our favourite is always Savanna Private Game Reserve but we have visited many other wonderful lodges during our trips, including Stanley’s Camp in Botswana, Motswiri, Motswari, The Hide, Imbabala and also went to Victoria Falls, staying at the magnificent 116 yr old Victoria Falls Hotel. There has always been an abundance of animals at each reserve which has been the highlight of our holidays. In summary, we would recommend Destinations Africa without hesitation for an amazing experience.

Hi to AllJust wanted to let anyone who may be wanting to go on a dream trip to Africa, you cannot go past "Destinations Africa".From our very 1st contact with Cathy, it was obvious that this lady knows her stuff when it comes to travelling to and around Africa. There was huge amount of information re our proposed trip well before we left and nothing in regard to queries etc was too much trouble.Everything, and I MEAN everything, was organised to a tee and absolutely nothing went wrong during the entire trip, we could not have been happierThank you Destinations Africa, you have given us "memories for a lifetime".

Hubby and I just got back from an amazing first trip to Africa organised by Christa from Destinations Africa. Christa created us a wonderful 3 week holiday from start to finish. It couldn't have been better. From pick ups, charter flights, choosing 5 different safari camps in Botswana and Zimbabwe for us, not forgetting Victoria Falls, we were met on time, every time by happy drivers, pilots and camp staff. The service at the camps was second to none and delivered so much more than we thought possible. Christa's choice of camps was perfect for us and each camp gave us special memories each different to the other. The animal life was exceptional. Destinations Africa get 5 stars from us for service, knowledge and knowing what we would enjoy. Thank you.

Our family has had two holidays at Simbavati, mainly staying at the River Lodge. Both have been wonderful experiences, really feeling that we were welcome visitors to a natural environment, still wild but approachable, and unspoilt. The River Lodge fits in to its natural surroundings while giving you all the amenities you need, we were not intruding or changing the habitat but felt very well looked after. The Hilltop Lodge is more modern and man-made but still blending gently into its environment.Destinations Africa made everything so easy for us - all our questions were answered quickly and with confidence, all the background information was sent to us to cover all aspects of a trip to Africa, not just to the game reserve. We felt that they cared personally about our group and what we wanted to achieve.Go and enjoy!

Destinations Africa listened to what I wanted, and delivered a dream trip. It was my first visit to Africa, alone, and they managed everything, all my connections and accommodation and activities. It was a perfect wish list of locations (Cape Town, Victoria Falls, safaris), the lodges were exceptional and friendly, the food was great. I saw every animal I dared to hope for, including the Big 5. Destinations Africa know what they're doing.

Travel Destinations Africa (TDA) is the best travel agent I have every used for anything. Their knowledge of Africa is unparalleled. Nothing is left to chance. The destinations themselves are superb, the arrangements seamless and all done with a very high level of personal service over the phone and via the internet. We have used TDA's services twice now and despite the fact we know Africa reasonably well will always use them when arranging a trip to Africa. I cannot recommend them highly enough

Our agent's local knowledge was invaluable, even the airport hotel was great! Ha ha. The safari at Karen Blixen Camp exceeded all expectations. We can't thank Destinations Africa enough for planning such a great trip for us.

The single most personal and detailed service we have ever worked with!What make Destinations Africa such a pleasure to work with was that they really took our experience, interests, passions and travel history into account. Cathy from DA interviewed my husband and I for almost an hour to deeply understand what we were interested in, how we like to travel, what experiences were the most important to us and other personal details. Based on what we provided in that initial interview, Cathy came back with recommendations, we provided feedback and she iterated on the itinerary until it was absolutely perfect. But this wasn't a simple booking service, we were provided with regular proactive updates and recommendations on additional activities as well as details on everything from the type of vaccinations required, to what type of currency we would need. We also felt completely supported by them while on the trip. Congratulations to the amazing team at Destinations Africa (especially Cathy!) for all of their fantastic work. If you are considering an African trip (and let's face it, after our experiences why wouldn't you be??), give them a buzz.

We have done a lot of travel, and cannot recommend DA enough. Quick to respond, brilliant advice, and extremely well organised. If you're planning on a trip to Africa look no further than this company to help you create a trip of a lifetime.

We recently used Destinations Africa to organise our trip along the Garden Route (self drive) in South Africa, 8 days in Zimbabwe (a minibus for 6 people) and finally 5 days at Savanna Lodge in Sabi Sands west of Kruger National Park. It would have to be one of the best trips we have so far taken. Everything went like clockwork, the transport and accommodation was superb. The Garden route exceeded expectations. Travelling through Zimbabwe was an eye opener.. don't let anyone put you off exploring this very interesting country with amongst the friendliest people you could meet anywhere.We have been to a number of game parks in Africa and Savanna Lodge would have to be the best we've ever visited. Apart from the superb accommodation and food, the game drives were fantastic. If you want to get up close and personal with lions, leopards, elephants, buffalo, giraffes... you name it, we saw it.Thanks so much Destinations Africa for such an amazing holiday. Would we recommend it?? Definitely!!

We have just returned from a 3 week honeymoon to Mana Pools and South Africa. Having used the wonderful services of Destinations Africa for my 2011 trip to Africa I did not hesitate to contact them once more when we decided to go to Africa.Everything was perfect. As usual, John and Sandie went out of their way to ensure they understood EXACTLY what we wanted to get out of the trip, to understand why we wanted to go to Africa and what we wanted to experience.The locations, accommodation, transfers, flights, the African support staff, everything was spectacular.I wouldn't trust anyone else to arrange our trips to Africa.

I have just returned from an incredible walking safari with Robin Pope Safaris in Zambia. What an incredible experience! With our expert guide, Kanga, we saw all of the animals we could possibly hope for including leopards, one with her cub. The staff, food and lodgings were top class and I would return tomorrow. Victoria Falls and the Victoria Falls Hotel were an added bonus which we thoroughly enjoyed. I highly recommend the helicopter ride over the Falls.Thank you Cathy and team at Destinations Africa for your superb help with itineraries and all on ground arrangements. I would use you again without hesitation.All up, an unforgettable 5 star experience.

Christa planned the most amazing family trip of a lifetime for us! We spent 3 amazing weeks in South Africa and Zimbabwe and enjoyed every moment. Our accommodation and transfers were all seamless. We met the most amazing people on our trip and it's certainly left us with a myriad of lasting memories. Thank you so very much!

Cathy at Destinations Africa was amazing in organising a trip for myself and three girlfriends to East Africa and Victoria Falls. She was so efficient, always friendly, very patient and went above and beyond to give us the trip of a lifetime. From the moment we set foot in Africa we had a friendly face to greet us and we were never left wondering about any of the arrangements...the trip ran like clockwork. All the hotels and lodges we stayed at were terrific and the game viewing was spectacular. I can't thank Cathy and the rest of the Destinations Africa team (particularly Albatross Travel in East Africa) for all their hard work. I wouldn't hesitate in coming to them again for further Africa travel.

I can not fault any little thing about Destinations Africa from the very beginning, and all the way through our trip, it was smooth sailing, John and Sandie are experts and listened to what I wanted and certainly delivered. Our itinerary was magic, just like Africa, trust me if you want a holiday that is wonderful and you want to feel totally at ease with the whole experience, look no further. Thanks guys for you expertise it was brilliant.
