Discover Africa Safaris Reviews

What people are saying about Discover Africa Safaris

Lana was helpful and understanding. I was organising a family safari to South Africa and was trying to coordinate it with several family members who kept changing their mind! Frustrating for me however Lana kept me calm and came up with a great itinerary to suit everyone. Every aspect including hotels, safari lodging, internal flights and transfers were well organised and I didn’t have to do anything which helped the entire holiday. Thank you Lana – I’m very grateful.

Thank you for arranging such a wonderful vacation for us. Antionette Booyse was our representative. She arranged a perfect trip for us and stayed in contact with us.throughout our trip. We highly recommend her. We loved all the places we stayed and the transportation from the beginning of our trip to the end worked perfectly. All the people involved were very nice and helpful.

We had a great week on safari and all the arrangements worked well. There was a problem with our hotel in JNB when we arrived the evening before we left on safari and Adelle Bell answered our call and fixed it quickly even though it was outside working hours.
