    "I have travelled twice with The Africa Safari Co. The first in 2015 when we went to Uganda Gorilla & Chimp Trekking and again in 2017 to Tanzania & Kenya. With 20 years experience in Africa their product knowledge is amazing and the staff really know their stuff. When putting itineraries together they offer great suggestions to work within time and budget restrictions. The local ground operators have been fantastic, very friendly with a great knowledge of the game and areas we travelled. If you are looking for an amazing Africa experience don't look any further than The Africa Safari Co."

Couldn't recommend Chobe Game Lodge or The Royal Livingstone high enough."

    "We have just returned from a 17-day trip to South Africa and Zimbabwe. We have done a lot of international travel but by far this holiday was our number one! A special mention to Michelle Besnard for organizing such a wonderful trip for us, her input and knowledge made our holiday so remarkable. I will highly recommend The Africa Safari Co to anyone wishing to book a holiday. South Africa will be a place I will hold very dear to my heart."
