Favourite Destination

Botswana's magical Okavango Delta!

Most Treasured Travel Experience

Coming across a herd of elephants in the Delta at a watering hole; the smell and the sounds still stays with me when I think about it. It was unique experience, that I feel so grateful to have witnessed.

An AMAZING trip of a lifetime!

A Wonderful Experience, Superbly Organised
Highly professional well organised trip from the moment we were met off the plane at O R Tambo.

We enjoyed the contrast between the more social group focus at…

Incredible African Adventure!
The African countries we visited were South Africa, Botswana, Tanzania, Zimbabwe and Kenya. The camps we visited in these countries, the animals and people made for an unforgettable experience. We are so glad to have made the trip and everything was so well coordinated by Safari365 and the itinerary was well chosen by our consultant Dianne.

Great experience in Southern Africa!
We received the photo book of our Southern African trip from Safari365 about five weeks after we submitted the photos. The book mixed enlarged photos with smaller photos along with a few generic photos of sites inserted at strategic points. The book was a very nice memento of our trip from the latter part of August through early September, 2016.…
