Great, efficient, going above and beyond service by Nicole!
Nicole has been extremely helpful with my queries, and going above and beyond to help me understand the Sabi sands experience better. When one of the lodge I enquired was sold out, she also recommended various options I could explore, and offers her valuable point of view. Examples - she ensured to pass on my room requests successfully and liaised with the lodge efficiently, ensuring to make our anniversary experience at the safari a great one. She also proactively offered to help me to continue looking for alternatives when I told her the transport options were beyond my budget. Thank you so much Nicole! Because of this we look forward to our experience with Safari.com and at Arathusa lodge.

Repeat customer
I used Safari.com in 2022 when my husband and I went on our first safari to Kruger National Park. They were professional, quick and easy to work with. I was anxious to return again in 2024 and Mel didn't disappoint with her planning, quick response and attention to my requests. Unfortunately, I cannot complete my wish to return this year but when I do return...Mel is who I will reach out to.

Excellent safari company and agent
I have booked 2 safaris with Safari.com and Anja in particular. We have yet to take the second one but the first was a safari in Botswana. Everything far exceeded expectations and every detail handled with top notch drivers, hotels, safari lodges and guides. Anja was very responsive and helped us plan our safari. We were so happy with it that we are doing another this year.
