We looked into three different Safari Tour companies while researching the vacation of a lifetime. Discover Africa proved to be the best fit for us with seemingly unlimited options, flexible budget and the true ability to customize every step of the itinerary.
After working briefly with Director Steve K. we were assigned Megan W. as our Personal Consultant. She was terrific! After bombarding her with questions, which she answered each one calmly and thoroughly. We then proceeded to flip flop destinations, cut a few days here and there and switch a few accommodations that exceeded our budget. She handled all of this with ease. Her knowledge was impressive and her personal experience was more than enough to guide us and recommend different safari options and even a cooking class (which she had personally attended).
Once our rapid fire questions dried up, and the numbers fell to a comfortable place for those of us traveling, there was nothing left to do but get our shots and book our flights. Done and done.
Lastly, I would like to compliment Discover Africa not just for setting up our journey but also the incredible smoothness which we were able to get from one location to another. We traveled for 21 days, stayed in 9 different lodges/hotels, visited 4 countries and even rented a car for a portion; this could not have gone any better. Drivers and transfers were early, prepared with water and safely delivered us on time, like we were VIPs. In one instance, our flight was canceled by the airline without our knowledge. When we returned to the lodge, we had an email from Megan plus a note waiting for us at reception informing us that the flight was canceled, we were being re-booked and we would have new boarding passes the following morning.
This is what set Discover Africa head and shoulders above the rest. Our trip to Africa was incredibly memorable, which it could have been with any of the tour operators, surely. I will however, recommend any friends, family and anyone who will listen to use Discover Africa for their travel to Africa. I cannot praise them highly enough.
Thank you Megan, for making this special trip, just that.
