She was amazing in helping us get a booking that met all our needs!

Everything was amazing from day 1. Diane got in touch with us via WhatsApp and was extremely prompt in answering any questions we had. She was knowledgeable about the camps and areas, and I would recommend her 10/10 to my friends and family.   [global_dynamic_group section_type="gallery collage" id="gallery 1"]

Discover Africa creates tailored itineraries for the trip of a lifetime.

Discover Africa completely tailored our itinerary to our desires and needs for our South Africa trip. We traveled with two teenagers over the Christmas holiday and wanted to pack in a LOT without completely overwhelming everyone. We added in the extra challenge of planning our trip rather late in the year. Having staff on the ground in the country and close relationships with hotels and tour providers made a huge difference for us and allowed us to do everything we hoped. We spent nine days in South Africa, equally split between Sabi Sabi game preserve, Cape Town and Hermanus. Discover Africa helped us get a taste of the country's vast natural and cultural diversity. The lodge accommodations, dining, and game guides' quality exceeded our expectations. Our Cape Town hotel was perfectly located to take advantage of all the festive activities and restaurants, and Discover Africa helped us to make reservations during this very busy time. The Hermanus portion of our trip provided stunning views and relaxation. Every component of our trip was well-timed and planned, down to the transport between locations. We felt secure that we could reach out to Discover Africa anytime with changes or concerns. It was a trip our kids will remember for a lifetime!

Excellent Kenya/Masai Mara Vacation

Discover Africa Safaris was instrumental in planning the Nairobi/Masai Mara portion of my 50th birthday celebration. I struggle to find words to describe my recent travels. The suggested itinerary was perfect, even after my sister and I were delayed because we completely forgot to secure the required visa for entry into Kenya. The trip cost was reasonably fair and totally worth the money. The entire trip details provided by Discover Africa Safaris from the beginning through our few adjustments were thorough and very clear. I had the time of my life visiting Nairobi, Kenya. All arranged drivers were great, the citizens were warm and inviting, and the accommodations and delicious foods served our needs well. In Masai Mara, we have numerous stories that will bring us laughter for many years to come. The safari tour driver, Dennis, was the real star of the trip. He ensured that we saw as many animals as possible, including the big five (rhinoceros, lion, elephant, leopard, and Cape buffalo) within the first two drives. I am grateful for Susan's excellent service. Thank you! Please enjoy a few photos from our excursions. [global_dynamic_group section_type="gallery collage" id="gallery 1"]

Great service, fantastic safari and lodge

We have just completed a four-day safari, our first and definitely not our last. Hamiltons Tented Lodge was great, good food, good service, and great views. Our trip has been trouble- and hassle-free. Well done, we look forward to booking another with you.

We had a fabulous trip. Everything was perfect, from drivers meeting us at the airport to amazing accommodations, excellent safari guides, and five-star service. Every day, I saw something I never thought I would see in my life. We saw a newborn zebra, baby lions, families of numerous animals, and even a leopard stalking prey. We saw all of the big 5 as well as met Maasai people and learned about their lives. The landscapes and sunsets were breathtaking. Highly recommend.

Everything went like clockwork with a lot of moving parts

What a fantastic trip. Discovering Africa was a great asset as they knew the many different safari camps and places to stay in Cape Town and the surrounding towns. All the drivers showed up on time and navigated the roads perfectly. I really enjoyed Geiger Camp as very small and intimate, and the chef was great.

Diane Du Plessis was so very helpful and personable!

Diane Du Plessis made planning my trip so enjoyable and easy. She was always there for me whenever I had a question. She also chose the best safari tent (superior view) for me! Everything played out as planned. For a single woman traveling alone, I wanted everything planned out to a tee, and Diane did that for me. All the drivers were there when they were supposed to be and took me to my planned excursions. I felt very taken care of. I have been telling all my friends that they should use this company (especially Diane!) and I will definitely be using them again.

Adelle understood what we wanted and organized a fantastic trip down including all the details.

The trip was everything promised and exceeded our highest expectations. Starting with Hamilton’s and then going to Londolozi resulted in new experiences on every drive and the enjoyment of two sets of accommodations and dining. Zim turned out very well, too. All the organization for transfers and transportation worked very well, removing a lot of typical vacation concerns. Thank you very much for a job well done!

Excellent end to end organization

Strongly recommend Discover Africa Safaris - they helped us organize the safari of our dreams tailored to our needs! Our travel agent - Chrizaan, was amazing—very responsive and super helpful (even during the weekends). She helped us organize and book all the details - transports from and to the airport, accommodation, game drives, panorama route on the way back... and we felt VERY SAFE the whole time. It wouldn’t be possible without her, so I’m glad we chose this company! Their engagement, response times, offers, and prices were much better than all the other travel agencies… Ps. We saw the big 5 [global_dynamic_group section_type="gallery collage" id="gallery 1"]

Our African holiday, from the transfer from the airport on arrival to being dropped off to fly home, was outstanding. We only had a limited amount of time, but Diane planned it to perfection. The quality of the hotels were nothing short of first-class. Inyati Game Lodge was the highlight with the open-plan lodge providing fantastic service, knowledgeable guides and trackers, and all-inclusive food and drinks. The quality of the food exceeded our expectations and the service and room were first-class. Diane kept us informed throughout the process of finalizing the trip. The transfers provided were of high-quality transport and the driver's knowledge of the area and communication kept us entertained. We thought the organized tour provided great value and variety. Thank you Diane and Discover Africa for a trip of a lifetime and a memorable birthday for my wife.
