Big Cat Safari Tour Review

Mike from Philippines travelled with Discover Africa in September 2018

Super glad we booked our safari adventure with Discover Africa Safaris. They were great!

Found out about Discover Africa while browsing the internet, at first was hesitant to go with them as their office is based in CapeTown and we are from the Philippines, we were thinking of the advantage of going with a local agency in terms of customer support and coordination. but a few exchanges of emails with Matthys who was assigned to us proved that communication was not a problem at all.

Matthys was very patient with all our questions and designed a very good itinerary for us. We also had a problem with an Embassy for our E-Visas and despite this being not part of their deliverables to us, Discover Africa’s team of Matthys, Megan and especially Alice took it upon themselves to really help us by contacting them on our behalf.

The trip went smoothly and everything in the itinerary was delivered as described. Excellent customer service!

Truly living up to their name, the way to discover Africa is thru Discover Africa!
