Comments and testimonials

 

Our trip to South Africa exceeded our expectations. This is by far the best travel experience we have ever had! Thanks for all you did to make this happen! Kind regards.
Elaine & Ed Wellner - October 2017

Another great holiday organised by the team at Travel Exclusively African! The choice of properties en route to Cape Town and on to safari near Port Elizabeth was just what we'd asked/wished for. This is the second time we've relied on T.E.A. for a "big" holiday and can't wait for our next trip...
Rob & Alison Woodward - October 2017

We have arrived home safely after an absolutely wonderful trip. Thank you so much for putting together such a great itinerary, everything went very smoothly. We loved everywhere we stayed...V&A was great and very convenient, Mont Rochelle was amazing, the personal touch from Gerald & JD at Wilderness and the views from Milkwood Manor. It was our first safari and we loved every minute of it. Thank you again.
The Pedersens - October 2017

Overall the trip was excellent. Chitwa Chitwa - excellent, our suite was really large, the guides were really knowledgeable. Iketla Lodge was a good location for the Panorama Route...Oyster Box (Umhlanga Rocks) was superb, amazing location and service...Thanks for all your help and arranging of the trip.
The Parkers - September 2017

Thank you so much for recommending and organizing my trip, I had an incredible time, it was so much better than I had anticipated and I would highly recommend it to anyone (Shamwari Conservation Experience).

The Tate family - July 2017

Trips were amazing. We're away with the family at the moment but as soon as we get home I will be in touch. I think we're boring people because we can't stop talking about it - brilliant. Thank you.
Sandra Perks - May 2017

I feel it has been remiss of me to not contact you and thank you for arranging such a memorable holiday in South Africa for my wife and I. All the arrangements worked really well, the accommodation was fantastic and the scenery stunning. We especially enjoyed being so near to the Waterfront in Cape Town and can thoroughly recommend Brian for the tours, he was fantastic. All good wishes.
Chris Cuff - May 2017

We were watching Masterchef last night which was filmed in Cape Town and remembering our fantastic holiday in South Africa. We have decided to go back soon and explore more places so I'm sure we will be in touch with you again. You were all so helpful from the very first contact. With many thanks.
James & Jane Craw - May 2017

The John Murphy Golf party - January 2017

Thank you for arranging our 2016 Christmas holiday in South Africa. We all had a wonderful time and everything went according to plan.

Just to let you know that we had a wonderful holiday. All the bookings went without a hitch. The Thatched House was truly excellent and we found a great place called Fernkloof near Hermanus where we did some great hikes. Sabi Sabi was superb and we had several fantastic game sightings there, including being very close to 5 lionesses killing 4 buffalo - rare to see such an event. So, thanks once again for your advice and time in booking it all up for us.
John & Sarah Pickles - November 2016 

Just got back home this morning. Thanks a million for arranging our South African trip it exceeded all my expectations, we had a truly memorable holiday.

Gail Haycock - October 2016 

I just wanted to say what a wonderful holiday we had in South Africa. It surpassed all our expectations and having the car and the accommodation all booked ahead, made life so much easier! We had a very active holiday which was brilliant and the Commodore Hotel in Capetown was perfectly located - couldn't have been better placed and their breakfast suited all our dietary needs and set us up for the day. Having 5 nights in Cape Town was perfect as you had suggested, and gave us the time we needed to see everything we wanted. Thank you once again for organising such a brilliant holiday for us. We are smitten and would definitely like to return to South Africa and travel to other parts. We can see why you love it so much!
Linda Spillane & Family - September 2016
 

Well - what can we say - so far the trip has been fabulous - the accommodation in Cape Town was jaw dropping - and the regular visits by the seals were a real plus - nice of you to arrange it!!! Brian and the wine trip was fantastic - he is a lovely person and made our day really special.
We have found nothing but happy helpful people who just want to do all they can to make our stay memorable. We are now in Hermanus and Lavender Manor is incredible - whale watching booked for tomorrow - must go - going to Dutchies for dinner.

Hazel & Steve Penn - February 2015

Well, sadly we are back home again. As usual we had a fantastic time with lovely weather. The apartment in Cape Town was superb, but Strandloper up at Paternoster was probably the best guest house we have stayed in (so far!) in South Africa. At the moment we....plan to return in November 2017....He would like to spend his birthday in Hermanus. If however if we decide to return next year I will contact you sooner.
Alison Upton - January 2015

Chris Pendlebury - December 2014

Arrived home yesterday after what was one of the best holidays I’ve ever had – everything and I mean everything went fantastically well. The hotels were great – can provide more detail if you want but no complaints – and Brian (our tour guide) is a little gem who could not have been nicer or done more for us on our trips. If there is any forum on which I can comment that would be of any benefit to you I would be more than happy to do so. Again a million thanks for all your wonderful organisation and hope 2015 is a great year for you

We returned from our wonderful holiday last week and would like to thank you very much for putting the itinerary together.

Everyone without exception was courteous and polite, Many Thanks and we are certainly going to return and will hopefully be contacting you again in the near future. With Very Best Wishes.
Davina and Colin Thomson - December 2014

Cape Town was good, our accommodation at the V&A Waterfront was in an ideal location and having the car all the time was useful for getting around.  We did all the sights in the time we had there. Stellenbosch was lovely, River Manor really looked after us and were very friendly and helpful. Wilderness, what a pair Gerald and JD are, once again a lovely house to stay at. Kareiga Game Reserve, another great place, good staff, excellent food and accommodation. The all inclusive was a bonus. Thank you for your help in putting our holiday together, we did enjoy it all and the 3 weeks. Went all to fast. Thanks again.
Keith and June Hanson - November 2014

Thanks again for all your help with the bookings, trips and hotel choices. We had a superb time and enjoyed every part of it. Can I also mention Brian, who is an excellent guide/driver, is good company and has an exceptional knowledge of the history of South Africa. We shall certainly be doing something similar there again. Best wishes.
Nigel & Val Harris - November 2014

I just wanted to say “THANK YOU SO MUCH” for organising such a fantastic trip for us.  As you probably know, this was a surprise holiday for my 60th birthday and I couldn’t have been more thrilled. Everything you organised was perfect and your recommendations were first class.  We all had a FANTASTIC time and will never forget Chitwa Chitwa.  We were very lucky to see so many brilliant animals and “events” and did not expect to get so “up close and personal” with the wildlife.  This was our first trip to South Africa, but hopefully not the last!  We have passed your details to our friends and family and have highly recommended your services.  The Isle of Man is lovely, but I know where I would rather be!!! Once again, Thank You.
Margaret Allinson - November 2014

We would just like to thank you for a fantastic holiday to S. Africa.  Your organisation went like clockwork and your recommendations were magnificent.  Shamwari was top class and we loved the peacefulness of Emily Moon especially. We would certainly recommend your services to any of our friends considering a trip to South Africa. Thank you once again.
Glyn and Suzanne Atherton - November 2014

I wanted to let you know that our trip to the Garden Route was a huge success.  We had the most amazing holiday, and we want to thank you so much for all your organisation and advice.  We really appreciate your knowledge and attention to detail. I would like to particularly mention the Widerness Manor, where the hosts are exceptionally friendly and helpful. The Kariega River Lodge was superb. Great room, brilliant ranger, lots of animals! All in all the trip was everything we hoped for and we have memories to last us a lifetime. Many, many thanks
Julia and Chris Whittaker - November 2014

Our hearts are still in SA. We are reviewing our beautiful journey it was like Magic - not a flaw. I wish I could remember all of the things. Thanks again for all of your help. So grateful!!!
The Deleon Group of 18 - November 2014

It is was our golden wedding anniversary this year 2014 and in celebration we wanted to visit the Victoria Falls, travel on the Rovos Train in South Africa and spend 5 days in Cape Town.  We had no joy with British travel agents so I searched the web and discovered Travel Exclusively African (TEA). What a find! We went in November and had a wonderful, wonderful celebration holiday thanks entirely to Kirsty.  She made everything happen like clockwork, selected the most wonderful hotels in Zambia, Pretoria and Cape Town and organised the flights, train and all transfers.  It all happened just like magic. I would urge anyone wanting to travel to South Africa to contact Travel Exclusively African and speak to Kirsty.  Thank you so much Kirsty.  Looking forward to our return trip to SA organised by TEA
Jean & Harry Faulkner - November 2014

We just wanted to drop you a line to say how much we enjoyed our South Africa Trip, it certainly exceeded all our expectations! Everything was perfect, the choice of hotels and accommodation in Cape Town were all superb. Chitwa Chitwa was amazing, all the hotels were excellent. We found some great restaurants and had some wonderful meals throughout the holiday. So Ian, thank you once again for such a wonderful holiday your itinerary absolutely hit the spot! We have already started recommending you to friends who are thinking about holidaying in South Africa at some point in the future. Many, many thanks…
Roland and Sue Carlin - November 2014

Just returned from our holiday and we had a wonderful time. Really appreciate everything you did for us. Many thanks
Alan Padden - October 2014

Just a little note to say we have a wonderful holiday in South Africa. Every day we spent there we saw or did something breathtaking. I cannot tell you which part we enjoyed the most because everything was special in some way. Thank you so much for arranging such nice accommodation. It is hard being home but just thinking about the holiday makes each day brighter.
Grace and Mick Mooney - October 2014

Just wanted to drop you a line to say we had the most fantastic and memorable holiday.  Everything about it was just wonderful.  We absolutely loved Shamwari - what a fantastic experience.  We just want to say a big thank you for your advice and excellent planning. Everything was exactly as described and exceeded our expectations. 5 star reviews for everything going on Trip Advisor.
The Falconers - October 2014

Just getting over our long journey home yesterday morning! Wanted to drop you a line to say what a fantastic time we all had! All the arrangements went extremely well. The apartment in Cape Town was amazing, the hotel in Hermanus quite superb and the final 4 nights in Shamwari were way beyond all our expectations! Thank you for putting such an amazing holiday together for us all! Very best wishes.
Hilary Sheffield - September 2014

We can't thank you enough for having arranged this to suit us so well. The places we stayed in were superb and the hints and tips you provided were really useful so that we were able to get the best out of each area. Your friend Brian did a wonderful job of touring us around the Cape and he was a real mine of information. I'm also so pleased that we decided upon Shamwari for our game reserve. Our guide was very special and such a skilled driver and game observer. The bird life was tremendous wherever we went - but you will know that of course! You can be sure that if I hear of anyone planning to go to South Africa I shall point them in your direction. Many thanks once again for all your help along the way.
The Ennis family - September 2014

Just a note to say we had an absolutely wonderful time on our trip! We cannot thank you enough for giving us such a memorable experience. We've already recommended TEA to a few friends.
Rachel Tappis - August 2014

We just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with the itinerary that you put together for us. It was wonderful and clearly predicated on a well proven, and researched, selection of destinations and accommodation. It is a beautiful country of breathtaking landscapes and seascapes with the added advantage of top quality food, drink, restaurants, accommodation and friendly service - what more can one ask for! We have done a reasonable amount of travelling and this rates as one of our best holiday experiences, so thank you. So what SA trip do you suggest for us next time?
Jonathan & Claire Gill - August 2014

What a wonderful, exciting holiday! It was really fantastic - the train was fun...The various tours were great and informative, and the guides/drivers very knowledgeable. We were blown away by Namibia, the scenery is awesome, the people friendly and the little towns were extremely clean, in fact we couldn't get over the absence of litter! All in all, a holiday to cherish - thank you for organising everything so efficiently, everything was perfect.
Lyn & Alan Blair - July 2014   

We have been back from our wonderful holiday for 2 weeks now & I can’t believe I am only just getting the chance to sit down & email you! Just wanted to say a very big thank you for organising such a great holiday – we had the most amazing time...The apartment in cape town was perfect – great location & very well secured – we had the most amazing weather there so were really able to make the most of getting out & about. Emily’s Moon was perfection!! I just loved the place...the rooms gorgeous & the food fantastic – highly recommended by all of us! Shamwari was lovely...the wildlife was good & the rooms lovely & spacious...Hillsnek was just fantastic – am so glad we were able to get in there...will be in touch again soon to organise another visit to Africa!!!
Val, Ian, Ella & Georgia Averty - May 2014

I know its a little bit late but I just wanted to thank you for arranging our itinerary. We had a brilliant time and all the accommodation was fabulous, you obviously take great care with your recommendations. Our suite in the Plettenberg hotel was amazing and they made Stephen a giant cupcake on his birthday. I think the highlight of the holiday had to be Kariega, nothing can prepare you for being so close to the wildlife. 
Clare and Stephen Collins - May 2014

Thank you for arranging a wonderful holiday for Alan and I. Having never been to SA before I looked on the internet and found your website. I e-mailed a brief outline of what we wanted to do and you arranged it all – you covered everything and ensured our ‘hands were held’ every inch of the way. Everything went like clockwork. I can never thank you enough. My enduring memories will be of the lovely people we met. Smiling faces, help and courtesy all the way, and our day with Brian in Cape Town was exceptional. Your saved the best until last – The Shamwari Game Reserve. We definitely intend to return. Once again, many, many thanks for an unforgettable holiday (I could write a book!!)
Alan & Janet Skitt - May 2014

The accommodation in Cape Town was fantastic...on to Emily Moon which we both agree is out of this world...and on to the safari and to tell you the truth it was a bit of heaven there and the staff could not do enough for you. Lastly we have travelled a lot of the world and I thought that our Route 66 trip (in the USA) couldn't be beaten but oh yes it can, by far the best holiday we ever had and hopefully we can do it again sometime. Finally Beverly we would both like to thank you and your staff for making it all come true for us and have already recommended you to some of our friends who are thinking of doing something similar.
Gerry and Marion Kelly - May 2014

We made it back home yesterday morning and I just wanted to send a note to let you know how much we truly enjoyed our trip. We had the best time ever... it went above and beyond all of our expectations! All of our accommodations were amazing and perfect for us. We were so sad to leave South Africa and definitely wished we had more time to stay there...we agreed that Kariega was the highlight of our vacation (if we had to pick). Thank you again for everything!
Rachel Kreh - May 2014

We had an absolutely AMAZING time – what better way to celebrate my half century than going up Table Mountain and having a lush meal out in the evening! We loved South Africa, and will definitely come back...I have been waxing lyrical about the place ever since, the people, the places are just amazing...Kariega Game reserve was fantastic – got to see all those animals SO close. All your choices of Guest houses were wonderful. Many, Many thanks for helping us to arrange it all.
Caroline Brooksbank - May 2014

Many thanks for arranging our fantastic 4th holiday through you to South Africa. We had a wonderful time mixing some old destinations with new. Everything went smoothly and you exceeded all our expectations once again. We are hoping to return next Jan/Feb for 8 nights of winter sun.
Alison & Ian Upton - May 2014

We wanted to say a huge thank you for the fabulous organisation and recommendations from you for our Garden Route trip. All the accommodation was fantastic and each was so very different that it felt like 5 different holidays in one. We only have positive comments regarding the level and cleanliness of accommodation, staff and food in each hotel/B&B. Emily Moon was my particular favourite and we actually ended up eating in the hotel restaurant for the 3 nights we were there as we could not tear ourselves away! The highlight of the trip overall for us was most definitely the safari and we were very lucky to see so many animals at Lalibela. We will certainly recommend Travel Exclusively African to friends and family and have already been selling in South Africa as a destination overall.

Deborah and I returned from a lovely and memorable honeymoon on Saturday. We just wanted to thank you so much for organising our honeymoon which really went down a treat! We have many happy memories and photos and will be recommending you to our friends!
Justin & Deborah Kinsella - March 2014

A rather belated email to thank you for arranging the most incredible holiday/honeymoon for us in February.  We loved Cape Town and can't wait to return, and are recommending it (and you) to everyone! Thanks for all your help with the recommendations, detailed itinerary and directions.  We both agree that your itinerary meant we could just relax and get on with our super holiday instead of worrying about the details, so thanks from both of us.
Jenny & Dee - March 2014

Just wanting to say many thanks for arranging our holiday. It was a great success and everything went very smoothly - no hiccups or unpleasant surprises; just really beautiful scenery, terrific accommodation, fantastic meals and very pleasant people. A particular thank you to Brian who was really good company and gave us a lot of insight into the country.

The Burton's - March 2014

Just to say a huge thank you for your help in putting together a fantastic holiday in South Africa.  We had the best time ever - Brian was delightful and gave us so much information about the country - plus he excelled in the wine tour. All went according to plan and our holiday was a success from start to finish - Would recommend your company to anyone interested in visiting South Africa.
The Turnbull's - March 2014

Just a short note to let you know our holiday to South Africa went off without a hitch. Arrangements were meticulous, locations excellent, service first class and the variety just as we like it. In short we had a wonderful time and will certainly recommend South Africa as a holiday location to our friends, and your company as a first class agency to make the arrangements. Once again many thanks for your efforts on our behalf.
Jeanette and Daniel Deans - February 2014
