"All the arrangements worked out perfectly, all the hotels were absolutely fab. All the transfers were very good and everything just worked perfectly. Thank you for all your work in planning the holiday, it certainly was the trip of a lifetime. The only problem is that we will have to go back at some point! Sanbona was a real experience. We were very lucky to see so many animals. The food and staff there were fab and very friendly. Mont Rochelle was truly wonderful. As soon as we arrived, Peter at reception made bookings for us for wine tastings and lunch the next day - all his choice and he really went beyond what we would have expected. He even arranged for the hotel driver to ferry us around. Customer service at its very best. "

"I must say we had a fabulous time! Rovos Rail was an absolute highlight, we couldn’t fault it. Four Rosmead, Cape Town is a fab boutique hotel with great staff. At Leeu House, Franschhoek we had a day doing wine tasting followed by lunch on their terrace.... just stunning. The location on the high street was great and a mini bus service where ever we wanted to go was a pleasant surprise. We would recommend this hotel to anyone! Chitwa Chitwa. Did we see the big 5?... a big yes! We had a leopard with a kill 10 metres outside our room (then noisily stolen by hyena at 2am). We saw a leopard kill a wart hog, plus wild dogs with an antelope kill. Staff and accommodation amazing! A fab trip which we both thoroughly enjoyed and would do again... "

"All hotels were great, with excellent service from Leopard Tours. Pongwe in Zanzibar - the location on a private beach was perfect and the hotel staff excellent. "

"Well, still in a state of total joy actually – what a trip! We loved Cloud 9! - For those who like the quirky, fun and friendly. The Millers Thumb - The best restaurant in Cape Town in our view! Outstanding for food, atmosphere and thoughtfulness of staff. Booking is recommended though. Ilios delivered utterly brilliant transport. – Helpful, informed and always on time. The guides were splendid – really well informed, helpful and efficient. Winchester Mansions is awfully beautiful – we really loved it, with super helpful staff. We were most impressed that when we asked for a taxi into town, they have their own private car that took us off down to District 6 Museum. Pom Pom had a great family atmosphere, it really felt like a very, very special place to be. We’ve never been anywhere as remote as Pom Pom before. We saw just about everything except rhinos, and had hippos a plenty (I love hippos!) It was the closest I’ve ever been to a leopard. As my husband is partially sighted and I’m disabled, once they grasped the problem, they were wonderful. They used the cool box to help me get in the vehicle and I managed to clamber into the light aircraft with a bit of effort, so all was well. Sadly, for my husband, there was not a lot they could do about the atmospheric lack of light at night! I am a veggie, and Pom Pom went to great pains to prepare suitable food for me. The food was really good too. "

"We got back here this morning on the overnight plane. Just to say it was all absolutely fantastic, and everything ran like clockwork. We can't thank you enough for all you have done with the arrangements. Royal Chundu River Lodge was superb and we're so glad we went to Muchenje as that was marvellous as well, and the Cape Grace was the best hotel we have ever stayed in. All in all wonderful."
Mrs K, Norwich
"We just wanted to thank you for organizing our recent African homecoming trip. It was fabulous with the driver / guides making all the difference. They were excellent, particularly Mike in Malawi and Fraser in Zambia. It was all so mind expanding and I would recommend that trip to everyone. There is a reason why they call Malawi 'The Warm Heart of Africa'"
Mr E, London
"We had the trip of a lifetime; the places you booked us into were of the very highest standard in terms of accommodation, food and service. You are to be commended for using African Pride; everyone we met on our travels who had gone to South Africa with them had nothing but praise."
Ms L, Basingstoke
"We just wanted to say such a heartfelt thank you for the most incredible time that we had at Ulusaba. Before leaving the UK I had a dream in my head of how mine and Jody's wedding would be. The time that we spent at Ulusaba with you far exceeded any of my hopes and dreams."
Mr & Mrs W, East Sussex
"We should like to express our thanks for arranging such a memorable holiday to South Africa for us. We shall not hesitate to use African Pride in the future as we have been very impressed with the service you offer. We are already thinking about a return trip to South Africa next year!"
Mrs D, Warwickshire
"Bushmans Kloof was stunning and we’re glad we had 3 nights there - one of the highlights of the holiday, so thanks for recommending it. Accommodation and staff were superb, food excellent and the afternoon tea was as good as Mount Nelson. A wonderful holiday, many thanks to you for putting it all together. We would certainly use and African Pride again."
Mr & Mrs K, East Sussex
"The Oceana Hotel at Port Alfred was an excellent choice as a finale to our holiday - a long walk along a beautiful and deserted beach was a fitting end to a ‘once in a lifetime’ holiday. The trip was a total success and that is to a great extent down to your expertise, friendly advice and excellent organisation - and a touch of patience, too! Please accept our thanks to you, and all the staff at African Pride. We shall have no hesitation in recommending African Pride to our friends and any other potential travellers."
Mr & Mrs M, Hull
"Thank you for helping make our trip something we will remember for the rest of our lives."
Miss J, London
