Our Client Testimonials
"Ciao Adrian Our trip was very good, nothing to complain. The decision to make our safari in Botswana was good too, even if we haven’t any previous experience to compare Botswana with other countries, and Belmont camps were amazing. Game drives and guides were ok too. We saw a lot of animals and enjoyed the tour. Our stay in Cape Town was great: Juliette apartment was really well located and with a very high standard. Our Cape Town guide, Lucia was fantastic. We asked her to arrange a Stellenbosch visit and she did everything (it was not included in our original trip). Perfect organisation and perfect choice of restaurants too. Your team have been professional too: we have been in contact with Joel and he gave us all support. Victoria Falls was great even if it was very hot, 47 Celsius. Anyway, we have been definitely satisfied with you and your team too. Professionalism, services, quick answers and good suggestion have been really well appreciated. If you need any further feedback don’t hesitate to contact me. Hoping to use your services again! Ciao"
We had an amazing trip, it was really wonderful! Thank you very much, well done!
We had a wonderful trip. The best part were the game drives in Sabi Sand. We loved it! And also the accommodation were great. The hotel staff were so nice. I had to cry when we left because of the kindness of the people. Our kids were also positively in shock of the kindness of all the people. All the African people are so very kind. The Dutch people can learn something from that.
The hotels were very good with AMAZING service - pleasant, efficient and considerate. The lodge owners made us feel very welcome and gave us the feeling of being guests in someone's home.
Everything has been great - we really enjoyed the trip!
We just returned to London and wanted to thank you for the excellent service and organisation. Everything worked like clockwork and we had the most marvelous time.
Hi Jenny-Lee, just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our trip. Our expectations were exceeded in every sense and everything ran like clockwork. It was a fantastic experience and the planning was done to perfection.
I have to say that this was truly a wonderful experience. The responsiveness from you has been phenomenal and it made the entire booking process pleasant and stress-free.
I want to thank you for an incredible experience. Our son was really able to fulfill his dream. Accommodation, guide, the Kosher Chef’s cooking, all were first class and we were treated wonderfully everywhere.
All lodges were brilliant and everything was found exactly as planned by you.
Thank you for everything you have done to set up a fabulous trip for us.
A very enjoyable experience. Thank you for a wonderful holiday!
“This was a trip of a lifetime, your planning, secret tips, accommodation recommendations, maps, etc all added up to a fantastic experience. Thank you.”
“We had an insightful and moving experience and the guides were very well educated and our visits to both the tourism attractions and charity projects was a great combination for our group.”
“Thank you for arranging an amazing experience as part of this international conference. Having dinner with your family at your home was also an unexpected surprise despite you having to care for over 700 delegates. We look forward to hosting you in Germany soon.”
Our trip has come to an end and we would like to thank you for all your hard work and patience! We really enjoyed the trip and were very glad that you were there for our assistance all the time.
What can we say – absolutely amazing trip! We all had a trip of a lifetime and want to thank you for the wonderful, well thought out and seamless itinerary and organization.
Our trip was fabulous. Certainly one of the most memorable our family has ever taken. We've been raving about it to our friends and family.
"Hi Joel, We had the most wonderful awesome time away. We’re actually all a bit bummed that it’s over. The camps we stayed at were fantastic and a really good balance. RAW was very rustic and we all loved it. We had breakfast around the campfires. The staff were lovely and Ella even got to go on a horse safari. Upon arrival, we were a little concerned that there was no water and all we would be doing was the jeeps. But it wasn’t an issue at all. There were so many animals to see and we all went to the pool every day for downtime. We even saw a pack of wild dogs chasing an Impala. Ella cried when we left, and Cooper decided he wants to get an African passport so he can work at a camp. Obviously the kids both really enjoyed it. Camp Xakanaxa was amazing. The accommodation is beautiful. The greeting and staff were fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The boat Safaris were a highlight. We saw lots of Elephants while on this and a massive crocodile. We also saw Leopards, Cheetas, Lions and Hippos. We were totally spoiled. We had lunch out in the bush one day. They set up a table for the whole camp. It was a surprise which Troy & I particularly enjoyed. The 2 camps were very different from each other but a great balance - which really complimented our stay. We can’t thank you enough for the change of accommodations in Zimbabwe. With the water restrictions and the electricity run by hydro, the power was out during the day. The heat and mosquitos were unbearable. The move to the hotel was very much appreciated. Thank you! We caught the transfer into town each night and tried different restaurants. There was a great selection. Ella & I enjoyed our horse safari while the fishing was a highlight for Coop. He managed to catch 2 Tigerfish. The view from the pool over the water hole was amazing. And we went and watched the vulture feeding! Thank you for all your help and support. We all had the most wonderful time. In fact, we’ve all said numerous times that we wish we were back in Africa. Many Thnxs for taking care of our family. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and have memories to last us a lifetime. Take care. Best Kath & Family"
I hope this message finds you well. First and foremost, thank you for all you did to make our African experience an incredibly memorable one. It’s been a while since our return and although we have not gotten a chance to reach out to you until now, this experience remains fresh in our minds and has been at the top of every conversation we’ve had with family and friends. We have shared our itinerary and your contact details with several of our friends/co-workers/family members. We have actually kept in touch with our Capetown guide. He was really awesome and left a lasting impression.
Thanks again for taking care of the issue with our room at The Commodore. They were able to move us on the final night.
Kapama was awesome! We saw 4 of the big 5 (leopard was elusive!!). On our last night, we had a visitor in our bed. I was awakened by something crawling on my face and turns out it was a snake (non-venomous). It’s one of the best stories that we’ve been able to share! Even with our unexpected reptile friend, which gave us a full safari perspective – we had a MARVELOUS TIME!! This trip was extra special because of our anniversary and you certainly celebrated us in style at Ilala --- LOVELY accommodations!
I don’t think this is our last time to Africa. We have heard great things about Kenya and that may be our next trip. We hope you had a great Christmas and looking forward to the new decade!!"
"We are back home after a wonderful holiday that we will never forget. Thank you for all the details that made us feel so special - the birthday cards, gifts, cakes and special mentions. Everything was organised so well - so thank you so much. It was a trip of a lifetime!"
"We had a really great time in your country, everything went to plan - all transfers etc on time, all the accommodation was very good."
"My trip has been extremely positive both from the organisation side to the lodges that I have been to and the safari that I attended. Really loved it."
"We are now safely back in Jerusalem, the children are back in school and we remain with the wonderful memories of our trip. I want you to know that we were extremely satisfied with the planning, the attention to detail, the helpfulness and the responsiveness of your company and particularly of Tanya, from the moment that she became our point person. It is not easy to plan so complicated an itinerary from a distance, particularly combining it with the issues of kashrut and Shabbat, and you did this excellently. Thank you. Look forward to returning to South Africa with more grandchildren in the future!"
"Hi Tanya We just got back from S.A. First of all, I want to thank you for the great Holiday that you organized for us. Our vacation really went beyond all expectations. We found both beautiful places and beautiful people (we have been really pleasantly surprised by the kindness of South Africans). We felt having a second honeymoon after 29 years of marriage. I will strongly recommend you to our friends if they want to organize a tour of South Africa."
"We stayed in the lodge for 3 nights for our first safari experience. The lodge is beautiful, designed by Maria, the owner. The rooms have beautiful canopy beds, stunning bathrooms with indoor and outdoor showers and an outdoor hot tub which is deliciously warm and very enjoyable after a long safari drive. Everything we needed was taken care of by the very helpful and friendly staff, including all meals and safari drives. We only eat kosher and there was a full kosher kitchen where the chef made us delicious kosher food. What more can I say? If you are seeking an amazing place to stay, this is it!"
" Dear Adrian, Jayme, and Monika The dust has settled and we have been home just under a week and somehow our Safari feels as distant in time as it was in actual kilometers from here. Every member of the family had the most delightful time and we are all so very enriched by our experiences both with family interaction and magical wild Africa. We couldn’t have done it without you! Kosher travel is complicated at the best of times but put 26 people together with food allergies and preferences are thrown into the mix, it’s super complicated! Adrianne and Aron did a fantastic job of seeing to each and every need and Monika ably managed our daily ragtag timekeeping and always changing schedules with a smile and grace (an absolute Saint!!). Jayme you were our girl champion with our haggling to make this dream affordable and all the bookings, schedules and admin that goes with it right down to details like mozzie machines, superb! Our chef did us proud! Our accommodation was comfortable and our drivers so pleasant and obliging, it all came together magnificently. An enormous thank you goes to the whole team, especially Monika, for our last night finale celebratory dinner: the location, the table, the dancers, the food. This was the seminal memory for all of us (including of course the big five that we were lucky enough to see). David’s children had just announced to him his 70th birthday gift that they had been working on for a year. A most meaningful and great honour and very emotional for all of us, especially David, and then straight into this beautiful party!!!Thank you all for forever memories and a time of joyful togetherness and no fuss from our part at all as you took care of everything!
Gratefully yours, Amber & David "
"Hi Sunet, I want to let you know that our Safari was the most amazing experience ever! The safari lodge was gorgeous and the service was beyond anything we have ever experienced. Overall we had an amazing time and have just shared our itinerary with friends getting married shortly. I also wanted to let you know that we were blown away by the food that Totally Kosher provided. All the food was delicious, wrapped with precision and care, and the portion sizes were very generous.
We wanted to thank you guys again for helping us have an absolutely incredible honeymoon and hope to work with you again in the future.
All the best, Dan"
"Hi, Adrian We are getting back to a more normal schedule here in Baltimore. Noah and I have regaled our friends with tales of our adventures in the past few days. I just want to write to you before our grandchildren arrive this afternoon. Needless to say, our overall experience from my first telephone conversation with you months ago, through Jayme-Leigh and Reynard being so responsive to our every question, to all the transfers and memorable experiences we had throughout the trip, was beyond excellent. We learned, we laughed, and we loved every day. The itinerary and the agenda and the safari guides/drivers and the properties were wonderful. Feel free to use us as a reference because we loved the adventures and services you provided and will be glad to tell others."
"Everything was perfect! We had a great time. Trying to talk my wife into doing it next year (fingers crossed)! Doug and I appreciate all your efforts."
"I just want to thank you for all readiness and support given during our booking process. We are very pleased with our choice of working with you and Tourism That Cares and for sure will be our choice in the upcoming trips."
My experience with Luxury African Safaris was exceptional, the way everything was planned was brilliant, costumer service was amazing always trying to make the costumer happy with all needs, hotels were fantastic, the kosher food we had in the safaris and different cities was really enjoyable, overall I would 100% recommend this company for you next trip to Africa.
“The helicopter flight deep into the mountains, the silver service picnic, the gracious attention of Ron Gold as a world class tourguide. Our group could not have asked for a better experience and we are grateful again for your successful planning of yet another annual trip to South Africa through your company. Our friends from Hamburg and Thailand were most impressed.”
“The idea of purchasing a charity safari is wonderful. This is my second trip in 4 years, and knowing the profits of the donated nights went to a good cause made it all the more enjoyable. Thank you for taking such good care of our other Canadian guests through the years and this time spoiling myself and my sister on a great safari.”
“The entire trip was very well organised, and the 5 star exclusive safaris in the Okavango Delta were an absolute highlight for both sets of parents. Nic was a great tourguide, and thank you for taking the time as the owner of the business to meet us personally in Cape Town for lunch and sharing your passion and stories about social upliftment and tourism.”
“Thank you for everything, the whole team made us feel very welcome and at home (butler, villa staff, private guide, chef, travel assistant etc). We definitely would be looking for a follow up trip in the coming few years.”
“Hi Mark, just wanted to thank you for your perfect organization. Great choices (Tuningi safari lodge and The Residence hotel) and great service. We had a great time.Thank you again.”
Pleased to say we had an excellent and trouble free trip, everything worked well, timings were good and the gluten free diets were well looked after. Kambaku Safari was very good and our grandchildren were well received, our guide JJ and tracker Reenius were excellent and enjoyed answering the Boy's questions. We did not see the white lions, but we did see the 'big five' and all our game viewings were spectacular. These included a leopard eating her catch, a steenbok, and watching her carry and store the remainder of her catch up a marula tree. We also observed two young male lions eating and guarding their catch, a giraffe which they had killed, and the growing audience of hyenas and vultures. Our ten year old grandson has had a great interest in the aarvark since he was small and we were all most excited to see one of these elusive creatures on our last evening drive. The Royal Livingstone Hotel was also excellent and lives up to it's five star status and, of course, this stay was all the more special as our daughter spent our first night with us at this splendid hotel. The paperwork for our grandchildren had been carefully prepared and so caused no problems, the main interest was in the birth certificates. Paperwork was checked seven times, starting at Heathrow. All in all a very successful trip. Our sincere thanks for helping us and organizing all the transfers which worked so well. Warm Regards,
To sum up our trip: you provided us with a wonderful and memorable trip. All things ran smoothly. We were pampered and well taken care of. I have already begun telling people in Israel about the trip and I can't wait to get back to sing your praises. Once again thank you and we look forward to working with you again.
“Your passion for this nation, its people, its beauty is so evident. You put up with a lot of special requests and we appreciate your immense patience in the planning of this trip.”
“Hi Adrian. First of all I want to tell you Thank you very much for your advice about Tswalu. It was amazing trip, we enjoyed so much. Very beautiful Hotel with great service, very kind people working there and of course amazing Safari!!! We fell in love in South Africa!!! Amazing country!!! With big pleasure we come back again and I hope you will help us to organize our new trip and show us amazing places in your country!!! Thanks a lot for your help!!!”
“The best honeymoon ever, and beyond our expectations. If we compare the value to experiences back home, then it’s an absolute bargain for the very high levels of service and comfort. Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to pop champagne on Paarl Rock and show us your favourite wineries.”
“I just wanted to thank you for helping to make our trip to South Africa a truly memorable one. We are forever grateful to you for making that happen."
"We just want to take this opportunity to express our gratitude for your professional expertise and personal time investment with our family holiday. It was an outstanding trip with top class service throughout and world class safaris. We are excited about sharing our adventures with numerous friends and colleagues who consult with us on advice for travelling when we return. We confident that you will have many prospective clients on your roster in coming seasons!"
“We want to thank you once again for all the efforts involved in making this a perfect holiday for the 4 of us. I scrolled through our correspondence to see the dynamics of how the trip was built and was impressed by your ability to assess our needs and cater to them in such a precise manner. We appreciated immensely the fact that both of you came out to be with us and the little touches such as the Graceland children experience enhanced the outcome such as champagne at the top of the hill... If there is anything we can do to assist promoting your business do not hesitate, either on your site or people requesting references-we are at your service.”
“Hi Adrian, We had a wonderful experience with the Inyati team 🙂 We saw the big five! 🙂 Keith was simply great and he even found lion cubs for us to see - truly a perfect moment 🙂 Thank you so much for your help and guidance - we hope to come back some day. kind regards”
“The Okavango Delta, Victoria Falls, Garden Route and Cape Town where all seamlessly arranged in a well prepared package, with excellent attention to detail. Thank you for making this a trip of a lifetime.”

I wanted to thank you for putting together an excellent trip. All of the hotels we stayed at were out of this world. The Queen Victoria was perfect, I liked that it was relatively small and the room was beautiful. The staff were all attentive and helpful. Malcolm our tour guide was fun to spend the day with. He was very knowledgeable and we had a great day. It was of course great to meet you and thank you again for the amazing lunch, we thoroughly enjoyed it. Cliff Lodge was a beautiful location and I think we both would have liked an extra day there just to drink it in. Gideon and his staff were wonderful! Also, thank you for asking for the dinner reservation at Kloeks at Home, my word, what a fabulous restaurant! We thoroughly enjoyed it. The Conrad was everything we expected and more, again, the staff were wonderful and the accomodations fantastic. We had a wonderful time at Riverbend, what a lovely location. I had only been into the public part of Addo Elephant Park before so it was a treat to get to explore this concession. Elias our guide was so very knowledgeable, we had a good two days with him as our guide. The food was superb and plentiful. Each staff member was extremely polite, friendly and helpful. It was a really good lead up to the main event. Singita Lembombo, what an absolute treat this lodge was. We had their top guide and tracker, Chris & Glass. Their enthusiasm for the country and the animals was a absolute pleasure to experience. Geoffrey, our waiter, was an joy! All the staff at the lodge were attentive, knowledgeable and just a pleasure to be around. I would like for you to pass on my sincere thanks to the lodge for the way they prepared for and handled Dave's birthday, they respected the fact he is low key and arranged everything accordingly. We had a perfect day, we could not have asked for more. Finally, thanks to you for putting this all together for us. I can guarantee we will be in touch in the future to arrange some more trips! Kind regards Marie Sanders, Denver, Colorado
“Overall the Botswana trip met and far exceeded all my expectations to the point I will hopefully be doing a lot more travel within Southern Africa. All the lodges were great and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The knowledge and experience of the guides was also exceptional. The daily safaris at each lodge were well organised and managed. Flight transfers were great and the pilots certainly knew what they were doing. Also managed to meet some wonderful people (fellow travellers) who I will now be keeping in touch with. All in all a truly wonderful experience and as mentioned I will be doing a lot more in the future. I am still going through all my photos (in excess of 10,000) and will send some through when I have finished sorting them. Thanks for organising the trip.”
“This was the most luxurious holiday we have ever undertaken as a family, and Hillsnek safari, as well as all the other accommodations en route made it an amazing experience, which our children will most surely never forget.”
“Lieber Adrian, Es ist schon einige Zeit vergangen, dass wir aus dem wunderschönen Südafrika zurückgekommen sind, aber trotzdem wollte ich mich noch bei Euch für Eure Hilfe bedanken. Beide Lodges haben uns ganz gut gefallen, wobei unser absolutes Highlight das Tongabezi in Sambia war. Wir hatten das Glück ein Upgrade in das Nuthouse zu bekommen, was atemberaubend schön war. Hier passte einfach alles: die Unterkunft, die Leute, das Essen, die Natur... Wundervoll, wir wären gerne noch länger geblieben..... Danke für alles und bis auf ein anderes Mal!”
“The group really enjoyed the safari and the free upgrade to a more luxurious lodge was amazing.”
“Thank you for all the great effort and patience you put in our vacation. I think I speak for the group of us when I say this: It was PERFECT.”
“You gave us exactly what we wanted, and it was an extra-ordinary trip with great locations and excellent experiences. We are back next year again and look forward to you creating yet another amazing experience for us.”
