Los Angeles to South Africa – Safari Review

Ram Reddy from United States travelled with Discover Africa in August 2023

One stop shop with good recommendations for activities, transport and stay.

Matthys was the Travel Expert that was our “concierge” for the 10-day safari and Capetown tour in late June. We had numerous Zoom calls to iron out the itinerary, places to stay and recreational activities (local tours, golf, etc). Matthys was attentive and listened to what we wanted from the holiday. He curated a wonderful experience that we will cherish. Despite numerous travel delays due to the airlines on our round trip from Los Angeles to South Africa, Matthys was prompt in responding to texts/WhatsApp and made the necessary adjustments for airport pickup or changing in-country travel reservations. The game lodge at Arathusa (at Kruger) exceeded our expectations – it was a 5-star experience. The Capetown wine country tour with a stay at Babylonstoren was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Thanks to Matthys and Discover Africa for organizing such a hassle-free and wonderful holiday!!!
