    "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 "

    "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 want to thank Jobovic Safaris personally for the special time I had with you on the safari in November 2013. 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. I will recommend you to all my friends. Wishing the team all the best."

    "The 13-day Safari through Kruger, Chobe, Victoria Falls, Okavango Delta and all points in between was everything I had hoped for. Plenty of wildlife. Knowledgeable Leader (Piet) and Guide (Bryce). They are a good company who became friends as the tour progressed. Would certainly travel with them again."
