    "On our first trip to Africa, we experienced real adventure and amazing scenery. The 13 day "Southern Explorer" Tour gave us the opportunity to visit South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe. This well rounded itinerary offered us a wide variety of excursions and activities. The scenery was beautiful and we were able to see lots of wildlife and many birds on the various jeep drives and river cruises. Our tour guides, Piet and Bryce, were knowledgable and provided great meals at the campsite. They ensured we were well taken care of. We highly recommend this tour for anyone who enjoys real adventure and authentic experiences. Join Jovobic Safaris for a "

    "memorable and exciting tour!"

    "We did 13-Day Improved Southern Explorer tour this year (lodge option). It has been a wonderful experience. Everything was well organized. The guide Bryce is an experienced and expert guide. The driver Piet is a professional driver. Both of them have a long experience in travelling with groups across Africa. We had great time with them! They did this tour lots of times, they know every place and they always gave us good suggestions."

    "Wonderful Safari experience. Communication, by email, was immediate and respectful, no matter how trivial our questions. Piet (owner/driver) and Bryce (guide) provided excellent service attending promptly to our every need. We felt safe and secure at all times. Their knowledge of the animals and their habitat was first class. The catering was more than satisfactory. We particularly enjoyed the BBQ meals Bryce prepared in the campgrounds. The itinerary through Kruger, Botswana and Victoria Falls created many opportunities to see the native animals. Particularly loved the overnight camp in the Okavango Delta. This Safari exceeded our expectations. Piet and Bryce were more than tour leaders. They became good friends. We enjoyed their cameraderie immensely. We would have no hesitation recommending Jobovic Safaris."

    "All communication with Piet before the trip started was fast, reliable and perfect!! Every expectation we had on the trip beforehand were beaten. Piet and Bryce went out of their way to make our time as enjoyable as possible. They are great guys and gave us lots of informations about the places we visited and the people we met.... Soon it felt like travelling with long known friends rather than "employed travel guides". The campgrounds we used were all perfect and we enjoyed a lot of wildlife along the way!! "

    "We did the 10 day bush babies trip - wonderful.... One highlight was chasing the next and although there were quite a lot of kilometres to be done, Piet made it feel like it was nothing!! We can highly recommend Jobovic.com to people who love "down-earth, true-blue and real" experiences out in the bush of Africa. We'd love to come back and do another tour with them one day!! A big thank you again to Piet and Bryce for the very special and perfect time we shared!!"

    "My african dream. Africa a continent where J dream of returning as soon as possible. Thank to Jobovic Safaris, especially many thanks Piet and Bryce, for permission to make a memorable trip for me, Daniele and Laura. With us, there were also two American, wonderful and beautiful girls, Kim and Becky, who are travelling around the world, and we enjoyed a lot. Our 11 days tour of southern Africa Wildlife trail started from Johannesburg at 5 a.m. in a wonderful day. We arrived at Kruger Park and slept at Satara campsite, the day after we explored Kruger park up to the north (campsite Punda Maria ) which is a beautiful area, wildest , an one of the best place to see animals in many groups. We then crossed the border to Zimbabwe to find ourselves in the beautiful campsite Norma Jean’s. A magical place, English style , very refined and elegant. Breakfast from the lodge was memorable. The landscape seen from the lodge of lake Mutirikwe was enchanting. Then we visited the Zimbabwe ruins, one of the archaeological sites most famous in Africa. Heading north we put up our tents in the beautiful Antelope Park, a magical place where we found white horses, zebras and braziers always near the river. It was exciting the trip by boat on the river and saw a myriad of birds as the sunset. The next morning we visited Chipangali Park and we saw a lot of animals that have problems in nature."

    "In the afternoon we reached the overwhelming Ivory Lodge where we saw animals in their natural habit very close. The pool in front of the lodge was lit in the evening and we enjoyed a show of elephants like no others. "

    "We then happily reached Victoria Falls, a unique show, in their full beauty thanks to the rainbow that day gave us. After crossing the border between Zimbabwe and Botswana we reached the incomparable Chobe Park where we put on our tents in an amazing campsite. The cruise boat and the game viewing met our expectations. We saw every type of animals: elephants , giraffes , impala , lions. hippos, crocodiles etc etc. Dinner and breakfast reserved for us at the restaurant of the lodge were fantastic."

    "On the way to Johannesburg we stopped at Napa and Palapye and we had the possibility to meet local people."

    "Special thanks to Jobovic Safaris which allowed us to make this journey, for all we have seen and learned of Africa, for the extraordinary sunrises and sunsets, for the chance to sleep under the starry sky of Africa in contact with wildlife, for all the breakfasts , brunches and dinners in campsite and in the most exclusive lodge. "

    "Another big thank goes to Piet and Bryce who allowed my friend Laura, not in good standing with the visa for Zimbabwe, could return to Johannesburg from the border, and then retrieve her a few days later at Kasane airport in Botswana, so that she was allowed to complete her tour. A big thank to Bryce’s mom who recovered Laura late night in Johannesburg and brought her to the Hotel. Thank you very much Jobovic Safaris. J hope to see you soon. J recommend Jobovic Safaris to everybody who wants to see Africa."

    "From start to finish, my experience with Jobovic Safaris was excellent. The booking process was easy and simple and all the information I needed to prepare for the safari was provided. Before arriving for the safari, Jobovic Safaris touched base regarding the pickup details and they were waiting for us when we exited the airport. The safari was a blast - we saw a ton of wildlife, camped in stellar campsites, ate amazing food, and had a blast with our safari hosts and fellow travel members. I cannot say enough how much I loved the safari and would highly recommend Jobovic to anyone. Africa is an amazing place and Jobovic went above and beyond to ensure we experienced Africa. Thank you, Jobovic for a trip of a lifetime. I cannot wait to go back to Africa again someday soon!"

    "My husband and I arrived in Johannesburg with high expectations for our first African safari and I'm pleased to say that Jobovic Safaris far exceeded our expectations. During the booking process, Piet answered all of my questions in a timely manner and adequately prepared us for our trip. Once our tour began, it did not take long before we knew Jobovic Safaris would live up to its promise of warm hospitality, lots of adventure, and fun-filled days. Piet and Bryce make such a great team and always ensured we were happy, comfortable, and well-fed every step of the way. Piet is a wonderful driver and Bryce is a very knowledgeable tour guide. Plus, their passion for Africa's wildlife and culture shines brightly. We learned so much from them and appreciated every opportunity to partake in African traditions, such as a traditional Braai with pap and chakalaka. I simply cannot say enough positive things about Jobovic Safaris and would highly recommend booking with them. By the end of our trip, my husband and I knew we wanted to return someday and that is all because Piet and Bryce made our first experience so very enjoyable. Thank you, Jobovic Safaris, for an amazing trip with unforgettable memories!"

    "I would strongly recommend booking with Jobovic. Our trip leader Piet did a great job helping us plan or safari. The fact that there was a 7 hour time difference had no impact on our communication. Piet's responses were timely and thorough. Our safari as a whole was an awesome experience as well! Our tour guide Bryce was not only friendly but very knowledgeable as well. Piet and Bryce make a great team! They consistently ensured that we were satisfied and having a good time. We were able to enjoy amazing views, learn more about each place we visited, and explore new areas. Piet and Bryce helped create wonderful opportunities to build lasting memories. It was an incredible trip!"

    "I travelled through South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe with Jobovic, an had a thoroughly brilliant time. As a single traveller, I was a little apprehensive about taking on such a trip, but the team quickly put me at my ease, and made sure that I had everything I needed. "

    "The truck journeys were great fun, with excellent local commentary and plenty of stops not only for comfort breaks and refreshments, but also to spot wildlife, see great viewpoints, and generally experience life in Africa."

    "Once at camp, we were served great food (with plenty for second and third helpings!), I particularly liked the grilled meats and salads, but we certainly were kept well fuelled for our adventures. The team made sure that we didn't miss a moment of the sights around us, and really made the tour perfect in every way - thank you!"

I loved all the animals that we saw and the time you gave us to take such good pictures of all the nice places we visited. Thanks also to Mariette for the good food she prepared for us, it was really far better than I expected. The driver and guide was always friendly and helped to make this a trip to always remember.
