I want to thank you for organizing such a magnificent trip for Elaine and I. It was truly amazing. The accomodation was magnificent, much better than I expected. The Bunu Safari Company was excellent. Every guide / driver was friendly and knowledgeable. All tours / cruises were fantastic. We were lucky enough to see some amazing sights. These included:

  • floating on the African Queen and watching a herd of elephants swim right accross the river, under the water, breathing through trunks above the water. The backdrop to this amazing sight a truly magnificent sunset.
  • In our stationary safari vehicle, being in the middle of a herd of about thirty elephants crossing the road. Their behaviour telling us to keep away from their young.
  • Being about two meters away from a pride of lions (about eight) devouring a buffloe that they had killed the previous night.
  • Floating down the Chobe river watching herds of Hippos graze and herds of elephants run throught the bush to drink at sunset.
  • Walking into a small village in Namibia with a very young guide (just the three of us) and learning about the way of life.
  • Breathtaking sunsets

I have some truly amazing photos. Everywhere we went our guides / transfers we waiting for us. Not one thing went wrong. We could not have asked for a better trip. We certainly got value for money. Since coming home and showing photos to friends and family, many have said they would like to got to Africa but had not consisered it because it was too expensive. My answer to them was that it can be expensive but certainly doesn't have to be. I have told them all that when they go I will give them your contact details so that you can arrange it for them. Some are really keen and I'm sure you will hear from them.
Many thanks

Thought I'd like to let you know our trip was brilliant. The travel arrangements went without a hitch and we caught the bus to the hotel which was very comfortable. Bulhala itself was so lovely and peaceful and we were made very welcome. Saw plenty of game in our trips to the Kruger National Park and seemed to spend lots of time just lazing about admiring the view, altogether a wonderful holiday and thanks for organising it so efficiently.
Betty Fairfield – United Kingdom

It was a really great trip - thanks to you and the team for organising everything. The Auberge Clermont in Franschhoek, wine region was by far the best. Lavender on the bed at night and really friendly. Also, our guide on the Shamwari Game Reserve was really great. Now back to cold old London for the winter!
Many thanks again
Alison - United Kingdom

I am finally safely home in Port Macquarie after many adventures in Africa.
Thank you so much Rebecca for all your help when I missed my flight out of Uganda and so missed my connection to Vic Falls. Elephant Hills Resort is wonderful and the staff are very special, helpful and welcoming. I loved the Falls and enjoyed the safari into Botswana, Chobe National Park. Lots of photos taken. Once again, thank you for all your help both before and during my trip.
Regards,
Lorraine Henley & Port Macquarie - Australia

We are back and we loved it, especially the Franschhoek area. Auberge Clermont was excellent – hosts and staff were very good. Hunters Country House was also excellent. The accommodation was very comfortable and spacious and the cuisine was excellent. Staff very good too. Buffalo Hills was just what we wanted – excellent value, very friendly with quite a small family feel. Just ideal for Alexandra our daughter. To have driven further east would have been too much. Blue Gum Estate – the room and facilities were very nice indeed. The staff were very friendly, but it was clear that the owners were not much in evidence which was slightly disappointing.
Winchester Mansions was ideal. Good service, good shuttle to from Waterfront etc. Great little oasis.
Car hire was fine – thank you for sorting the seat for us, it was delivered before we left Franschhoek for the east. Thank you again for all your assistance – we are most impressed indeed with the South African hospitality and will be telling all our friends as much.
Diah, Doug & Alexandra McAdam – UK

Thanks for all your efforts on our behalf. All the bookings and connections went very smoothly.
It was all highlights. Enjoyed Cape Town, got to Table Mountain, Cape Point, Robben Island, District 6 Museum, Waterfront, and ate at Mama Africa´s a couple of evenings. Franschoek was lovely, as was Spier. We liked Knysna and the Featherbed tour. Kariega was a great experience, relaxing as well as great game viewing, the Battlefields were a fascinating bonus and then Victoria Falls – lots of water but so impressive. We took the helicopter flight to see it all. So, thanks for all your efforts on our behalf. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in South Africa and would recommend it to anyone.
John Getgood – USA

We had a great holiday and we are still looking forward for another one especially the Garden Route and Kruger National Park next time. My son had great time and it was a great experience for all of us. I should first thank you for making our holiday great by providing such lovely hotel rooms and transfers. I am giving your email contact to few of my friends and also to my travel agent.
Thanks once again.
Sangeetha Murli

Our most sincere thanks to you for arranging our trouble free trip, it went very well, we enjoyed everything we did, so much so that I am planning on repeating a similar trip in January 09 And would most definitely call on you again to do the necessary bookings. I enjoyed Bakubung and am pleased I have now experienced both Kwa Maritane and Bakubung, we saw a few wild life on the road and also whilst having breakfast, this I did not have at Kwa Maritane. So my grandchildren had an experience of a lifetime, thank you for recommending it. A happy Easter to you and your team, keep up your good & efficient manner of your work.
Alison Robson – UK

I would just like to say thank you to you for organising our trip at the Radisson Hotel, Table Bay Hotel & Franschoek Country House. Everything went according to plan. We enjoyed it very much and will be back in a couple of years. Thanks again.
David and Glynis Halls – UK

Our trip was absolutely fantastic!!!! Congratulations on your planning and choice of accommodation houses. It began with Franschhoek, amazing scenery and accommodation was great, good relaxing start to our holiday, visited several wineries and managed a few purchases. Moved on to Hermanus – well, what can I say about Birkenhead House? Nothing that you have not heard before, I am sure. What a wonderful piece of paradise, amazing welcome right through to room, service and food. One place I can say is the best I have ever experienced in all my travels, and hope to experience again!!
Onward we go to Olive Tree. This was the Africa I had been looking forward to, animals and once again incredible service, accommodation and meals. What a great experience. In Sun City we had a few problems with our room not ready on time, but we still had fun, played mini golf had some nice meals. Then we got a ride to airport and off we went again. Victoria Falls – how amazing are the falls? We would recommend our accommodation and everything else there to all – the food, service, accommodation, area, things to do etc. Helicopter over falls, Walk with the lions, walk along falls, Buma, entertainers – you name it, it was excellent.
No real problems throughout the whole trip. I would recommend you and African Dream Holidays to any who asks. Thank you once again for a wonderful bag of great memories, we all loved it! Happy New Year to all and may 2008 bring great health, happiness and prosperity.
McMahon Family – Australia

We had an awesome time in Mozambique. We swam with dolphins and whale sharks!! The people were great and super friendly. Thanks for the bookings etc.
Rudolf Weder – South Africa

It is good to be home and what an amazing experience we had – lots of connections and projects created – just amazing!
So – yes – will definitely be back in SA soon and calling on you to assist us. Thanks for all that you did to enable this trip to be as wonderful as it was.
Christine Davies – UK

Thanks for your email and good wishes for the season – which I´m happy to return. I found my stay in Stellenbosch very enjoyable: a calm and pleasing room, excellent breakfasts and friendly staff. Your location in the town is ideal – central enough to stroll in but green and quiet too. So on balance a very happy restful stay and my conference trip felt more like a holiday.
Dr Simon du Plock – UK

I just want to express my gratitude for a well organised and hassle free stay at the Polana in Mozambique. We were well received and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay all thanks to you personally and your organisation. Should an opportunity avail itself again I will not think twice to call you to arrange. All the best.
Shadi Laka – South Africa

I wanted to touch base with you to let you know that we had an absolutely phenomenal trip! We certainly enjoyed our time in the beautiful wine country and Cape Town had SO much to offer. The tours and the dining were all perfect – thank you so very much.
Suzanne Wacker – USA

Have just returned from our trip and wanted to say thank you so much for all your help we had a fantastic time the Singita Ebony was super and the staff couldn´t have been more helpful and for us Singita Ebony was definitely the right choice it was everything that we imagined Africa would be and certainly will be recommending you to our friends. So again thank you for all your help.
Maria Greener – UK

I just want to thank you for your efforts in making a memory that my children will tell their grand children. We had a ball in Zambia and will definitely consider going again, but not driving there next time. Thanks again.
Francois van der Linde – Botswana

Thanks again, you have made this experience very seamless and pleasant to deal with. I would definitely recommend my friends and family to deal with you in regards to African vacations.
Soloman Lev – Canada

Just a quick note to say, thanks for all your help. We had a wonderful time and were particularly impressed with the Palace of the Lost City and Melrose Arch hotels.
Michael Donnelly – Dublin

The hotel in Cape Town was great and we had fantastic time, were even lucky to watch the Whales at Hermanus. Kirkman´s Camp was an eye opener and I will come back next year. We did see the big 5 and more so the kids loved it and so did the adults. The camp staff were fabulous.
Zizi – UK

Thank you for all your help. The safari and Sun City were wonderful. We truly had a lovely time.
Ms Lapin – Toronto

Renee has done a phenomenal job with assisting me. Thank you so much.
Albert Leon – USA

The trip to Sun City, Cape Town & Bakubung Bush Lodge was great and all the arrangements were nicely done. Thanks so much for all your help and patience with all my phone call requests throughout my trip. I will certainly recommend and/or use your service again.
Poppy Lorgrailers – USA

We have just returned from an amazing honeymoon. Just wanted to thank you for all your efforts that went into the planning – everything turned our perfectly, from our flight – right through to the hotel and everything else in between.
Anisca Maartens – South Africa

We had a most enjoyable holiday in South Africa. Both the V & A hotel and the Bay Lodge were excellent. Of course the V & A is surrounded by restaurants all within walking range and we were very familiar with that area. We did not try walking from the Bay Lodge back up the hill to Plett although we met others who accomplished the walk without any difficulty. On 2 of the nights we walked across the beach and the short bridge to the Beacon Island hotel where we found the restaurants open to visitors and very good. We also used the Moby Dick which is right on the beach very near the Bay Lodge.

Europcar brought along a golf which was too small for our golf clubs as well as suitcases but they replaced it with a Toyota Yaris (I think) which was fine. They did that replacement very quickly and efficiently.

Thank you for your help. If we go back next year or again we will contact you. Don't go to any trouble but if you have any info about taking an apartment for a month in say Knysna I would be interested in hearing about it.
