14 Day Best of Southern Africa Review

Debra G from United States travelled with Discover Africa in January 2024

A Seamless Experience

We booked a safari trip with Discover Africa after doing research online. The travel agency offered the best starting and customizable itinerary for our needs, at a cost lower than other recommended tour companies we contacted.

We did a Zoom call with Vihann Van Wyk to review our goals, budget, and preferences, and with a few minor tweaks, we built our itinerary. We were a bit apprehensive as we couldn’t find reviews on Tripadvisor, which is my go-to source, but all contacts with the company allayed our concerns.

We returned last week from our adventure. Everything went smoothly and we could not have hoped for a better experience.

The trip was absolutely wonderful. The itinerary was perfect as were all of the accommodations. We hoped the game drives would be fantastic and they didn’t disappoint. We didn’t have any expectations for the other activities, which proved to be equally as memorable.

The time of year might have helped, as there were not a lot of crowds in typically popular locations. Despite it being the “rainy season” we only had 3 half days of rain during the 2-week trip, so don’t let the time of year stop you.
