Megan is incredibly thorough in her attention to detail.
We had an incredible safari that started perfectly at our take off airport and continued seamlessly until we arrived back home. We were taken care of by very wonderful and knowledgeable guides and the staff at the lodges were very nice. We ate great food. The safaris were excellent and each camp had a different focus that we enjoyed. We went to Victoria Falls Safari Club, Chobe Game Lodge, Camp Xakanaxa, Camp Okavango, and Camp Leroo La Tau. We saw and learned about many animals, birds, and vegetation. We loved the variety and if I could change one thing it would be to stay longer at the camps. We have never done a safari before and Megan let us know how everything would work and that let us relax and enjoy Africa. We can not wait to return. We also went to Cape Town and went on four activities. We enjoyed exploring the Wine Country, learning about Cape Town, and exploring the surrounding area and seeing penguins. We had a very personable and knowledgeable tour guide who made the tours fun. We also went cage diving with sharks and that was beyond belief. Megan listened to what we wanted to do and put together the trip of a lifetime. And, of course, I want to do it again.

My husband and I went to Southern Africa for our honeymoon and it was unbelievable and truly the trip of our dreams. We wanted to visit Cape Town, Botswana, and Zimbabwe on a middle range budget but still getting as nice of things as possible and Megan made it happen. Megan was so on top of everything and so organized I couldn’t believe it! I felt so safe knowing that we were in her hands. We stayed at the Victoria and Alfred hotel right on the waterfront and got to see the penguins and national parks in Cape Town. Then, in Botswana we did safaris in both the Okavango Delta and Chobe. We stayed at Kadizora Camp in the Delta first. This camp was so quaint, beautiful, peaceful, secluded, and the food and staff were beyond amazing. We didn’t see even one other jeep while we were out and saw the big 5 minus Rhinos which don’t live in that area. The second place we stayed was Elephant Valley Lodge in Chobe and the there was a watering hole right in front of the camp where elephants and other animals would come to drink right in front of the camp that you could enjoy while drinking coffee or eating dinner. We also saw 3/5 there minus cheetahs and rhinos. This view was incredible and made the camp so special. In Zimbabwe we saw the breathtaking Victoria Falls and did the funnest zip line. Even though we had several COVID tests while we were there it was all worth it and we respected each country keeping their people safe but still allowing us to visit. I cannot say enough about Megan she is truly incredible and we will be using her when we come back to different parts of Africa.

Outstanding customer service from my trip facilitator Alice Lombard
Lions Lodge game reserve in Kruger National park South Africa was amazing. I was unfamiliar with African Safari’s; however, Alice was extremely helpful and user friendly.

Incredible Safari & Cape Town Experience!
Megan was incredibly helpful and very responsive anytime we had questions or needed anything! She handled everything to make our trip run smoothly and we can’t thank her enough! The suggested safari locations and accommodations were amazing and any tour recommendations were superb as well!

Excellent, efficient, fast, friendly, a lovely and friendly person with a good feeling about her
How lucky we were to get Adelle Bell as our tour operator. We told her what we were looking for and she put together an amazing Kruger Safari for us. It was well organized and we had no problem with any arrangements , transfers, etc. All the lodges she chose for us, were excellent. She really was excellent in answering questions, even changing travel arrangements when we needed to fly from Nelspruit to Cape Town and then back to Jhb. She was excellent! Thank you Adelle for making our trip so memorable !!

Takes care of all the details!
Discover Africa did a wonderful job in ensuring that all of our trip details were taken care of. Especially with all of the intricacies that Covid-19 placed on our trip, our vacation went extremely smoothly and every connection, pick-up, transfer and communication was well thought out and accounted for. It is rare, in our experience, that there is not at least one "hiccough" in one's travel plans, especially when the itinerary involves travel between multiple countries, each with their own Covid-19 protocols and requirements, but this trip went smoothly and every detail was considered and addressed.

Antoinette was a competent, experienced, and well informed tour operator
Antoinette was extremely prompt with responses to questions and most anxious to provide options for all of our requests for tours. She communicated using telephone, email, text and What’s App, whatever was required to assure we had answers as promptly as possible. When we had to make last minute changes to tours because of flight delays, she was immediately on top of it, allowing us to see everything we originally scheduled, despite loss of a full day in Cape Town. The guide service provided was exceptional. We had private tours for all events, allowing flexibility in timing and stops when we wanted. The Cape of Good Hope tour, the penguin colonies and Table Top Mountain gondola ride were amazing because of the knowledge of our guide. Our Botswana Safari and Victoria Falls Elephant camps were of excellent quality with diversity between Okavango Delta and Moremi camps that allowed extraordinary wildlife sightings. The elephant encounter at Victoria Falls and our helicopter and guided tour of the falls allowed us to really see its full magnitude. There are so many wonderful things to say about Antoinette and Discover Africa.

Hard working, patient, persistent and thorough
Megan worked hard to find us a safari that met our wishes and patiently answered a million different questions over a period of a year and a half after our trip was postponed in 2020 due to the pandemic lock down

Wonderful vacation and service.
We loved our Africa vacation. Despite the airline schedule changes involved the whole itinerary went smoothly thanks to our travel consultant Matthys Van Aswegan who monitored our connections so we could fully enjoy each destination. Our Sabi Sands Game Reserve Safari and Victoria Falls visit was breathtaking and mesmerizing. Each lodge was over the top with a wonderful staff. Hopefully, someday, we will be able to return!

Incredible! Great experience that far exceeded expectations
A Tanzanian Safari had been a bucket list trip and Adelle at Discover Africa and Solly, our guide, made it better than we could have ever imagined! A few highlights: - Flexibility: we had to adjust dates and itineraries several times given personal conflicts and Adelle flexed with us at every step, offering thoughtful recommendations to make sure we’d be able to have the best possible experience. - Overall Service: from pre booking until we were back home, we felt genuinely cared about and like we were in great hands. Solly went out of his way to take routes and find spots off the beaten path to see the hard to find animals- answered our endless questions, all while doing some of the most impressive driving weve ever seen! - Attention to Detail: Adelle reviewed our all arrangements in detail, catching an error I had made with flights and time zones that could have resulted in missing a full day- but was avoided thanks to her. Every detail was perfect at every step. Food, bed types, custom pieces of the itinerary, etc. - Safety: it was of course a little disconcerting traveling during Covid and with my father who had only been out of the country once before- but the team was excellent and guided us through Covid requirements with ease and made us feel safe at every step, staying in constant contact and being very responsive. - Accommodations- far exceeded expectations and were beyond what we imagined, perfectly capturing the essence of an African safari. We lucked out that on several of the nights we were the only guests on property- so had over the top service. A reason to book before tourism comes surging back! Value- we knew this would be a bit of a pricy trip, but Adelle worked with us to get what we felt was a great overall value within our budget. She helped recommend where to pull back and where to spend more on hotels, activities, etc and her advice was excellent. Worth every penny. We could not say enough to compliment the team or recommend more highly - thanks again for the experience of a lifetime!!
