“Highlights of Southern Africa”
A wonderful trip for nature lovers. Seeing elephants, lions, giraffes, rhinoceros and a lot of other species of wild animals relatively close and in their own environment is really exciting and unforgettable.
“Fantastic Voyage Through Africa Tour by Travel Marvel in August 2019”
Travelmarvel tour Voyage Through Africa (from Capetown to Nairobi) was amazing because it offers probably the greatest wildlife experience in the world. From the relative safety of a large 4 wheel drive Land Cruiser vehicle or a large boat on the river, you can view, within a few metres on many game drives within various National Parks in multiple countries, animals such as Lions, Elephants, Zebras, Wilderbeast, Antelopes, Giraffes, Hippos, Buffalo, Wart Hogs, Crocodiles and a variety of birds. The ...read more accommodation was always first rate even in some remote places within National Parks. Visits to a Masai Village was a wonderful highlight with their singing and dancing including the children and discussions with young Masai men about their education and future. An optional visit in Soweto including an after school care centre was enjoyable to see the beautiful children. Only negative in the main program was a long exhausting drive in Kenya between Lake Nakuru and the Masai Mara though this did enable us to see along the way some real communities of local people. Travel Marvel should consider replacing that long drive with another included flight. Optional Excursions in Cape Town South Africa, namely Botanical Gardens and Heritage (incl Langa) tours were not value for money. The Tour Leaders in both Southern Africa (Christel) and East Africa (Blassy) were superb, particularly Christel who was simply wonderful in all respects, as were the Drivers / Guides particularly Raphael in East Africa. Raphael was an excellent safe driver with a superhuman eye for sighting animals, a true believer in animal and environmental protection and was knowledgeable, caring and humorous. Booking online with Global Journeys was smooth, responsive and efficient as always using Hannah who is extremely easy to do business with. That said, a recommended improvement would be for Global Journeys, in conjunction with Travelmarvel, to automatically provide greater direction, clear advice and removal of uncertainty re any need to secure a Visa in advance of travel for certain countries. For example on this tour, Australian travellers must secure before they travel, a Kenyan E-Visa online directly from the Kenyan Government website whereas whilst Visas for Zimbabwe and Zambia are required, these are organised at the border by the Southern Africa Tour Leader for everyone in the travel group which thus avoids significant hassles for individual travellers either pre-travel or at the border.
“A Must Do”
The APT Classic African Safari was fantastic and would highly recommend it. We were well looked after and all the accommodation was of a very high standard. We especially loved Ngala Safari Lodge at Kruger with the elephants coming right up close to the swimming pool. Our guide and tracker were very knowledgeable. They were able to find lots of animals for us and ensured that we were very close to them. The included laundry of our clothes was a bonus. Two other wonderful accommodation places ...read more were Ole Serai Lodge Camp at Serengeti and Karen Blixen Camp at Masai Mara. Both these lodges were tented accommodation but of 5 star quality. Again saw a vast number of different animals. With some of them walking throughout our lodge. Both our tour leaders were very helpful in getting us through customs which was great. A holiday we will always remember.
“Wonderful tour of East Africa”
I booked with Global Journeys for a Peregrine Tour of East Africa. They offered a very competitive price and I was very happy with the service they provided. I was kept up to date with any changes in the itinerary and all correspondence was made in a very timely manner. The tour suited us perfectly. The group was small (10 people) which worked very well for a tour spanning four national parks in Kenya and Tanzania. This tour is highly recommended, particularly around the migration season.
