    Thanx to Elena a pleasurable trip to the Krüger Park was arranged on short notice. We saw quite an amount of animals during the day in the sun as well as under the stars with search lights through the night. Our highly motivated guides and drivers took us to very exciting places and we had lots of fun. The accomodation in tenthouses was excellent. Zebras came right up to them. Thank you so much.

    Me and my girlfriend booked a trip through this company in March 2016. We knew approximately what we wanted to see but we got a lot of inspiration from the web page of Detour SA. We talked a lot to Elana and she was always quick in answering all our questions. We booked and paid 25 percent in advance. We booked a six day trip in Kruger and also some day tours in Cape Town. After all our trips we can summarize by saying that all our expectation has been fulfilled. The prices are amazing and the itinerary that was booked has been 100% correct. We highly recommend this company and when we go to south part of Africa again (Botswana-Namibia?) they will be our travel agent again for sure.

    Elana at Detour Africa came highly recommended to me by a friend who was using Detour to book her Southern Africa adventure. I contacted Elana to book a similar tour for my two friends and I. Over the course of almost a year we exchanged numerous e-mails. Elana patiently and thoroughly answered all of our questions, helped us select and book the perfect tour, walked us through the payment procedure, recommended hotels in Cape Town, and kept us informed of any changes. She was quick to respond to our queries and a pleasure to deal with. Good work Elana! Also, a big shout out to Detour Africa for their very informative website. The toll-free numbers are a bonus also. Their office is well located in Cape Town and convenient to many hotels in the downtown business district. I have no hesitation in recommending Elana and Detour Africa to anyone considering a trip to southern Africa.

    I'm just back from an absolutely awesome three week road trip from Johannesburg to Cape Town. The only word for it is PERFECT. I just loved every minute of it.

    I booked it through Detour, who I'd actually never heard of before. Louise put me at ease right away. She replied promptly to my questions and was always very positive, helpful and friendly. She just seemed to be really on the ball. I knew it would all work out great...and it did. Louise saw to booking an airport transfer for me and my first night's accommodation as well as the trip itself. She was there every step of the way for me...even in the office in Long Street after the trip with other ideas of how to make the most of my remaining time in Cape Town. I know I'll be back for another overland trip ending in CT and without hesitation I'll go through Detour for the trip, transfers and shark diving too...Detour all the way. Thank you so much for helping me live my dream. South Africa is in my heart forever.

    We had pre booked an open vehicle safari to Pilannesburg through Detour Africa. An excellent experience as all the procedures were taken care of very efficiently and Elana patiently guided us through all the details. We spotted some very good game on this safari and our guide J was really informative. Elana Black especially ensured we were well taken care of and she was extremely friendly and helpful. She also accommodated a last minute change in plan request and I was very impressed with her professionalism. Once again, thank you Elana :) I would definitely recommend booking via Detour Africa.

    I went on a 3-day safari that Louise put together for me and had a fantastic time. I couldn't speak more highly about it. My only regret was that I couldn't stay for longer. I was looking last minute and Louise was able to book me on a 3-day trip through Viva Safaris. They greeted me at the airport and took our group directly to Kruger. I was worried because I was late getting off my plane and through customs, so I quickly emailed Louise about my delay and she was kind (and quick!) enough to call Viva and communicate my delay. It was such a relief and great peace of mind to know that she had taken care of it for me. Excellent service. The safari itself was fantastic and the staff at all of the camps were very accommodating. Had a blast!

    we did the 2D1N tented safari tour at Pilanesburg. our guide 'Braham' was extremely knowledgeable on the animals and showed great passion at his job. The park was huge; we spent hours driving in a mix of close and open vehicles. Accommodation was basic yet comfortable for a 1 night stay(we went in winter however so it got really cold at night!). I would recommend the pilanesburg tour. We managed to see 4/5 of the big five.. all except the buffalo!! :)
