Tanzania & Zanzibar

Traveled in 2021. We used Sikeleli to plan out Botswana & Zimbabwe  safari and they did a superb job. So when we decided to travel to Tanzania, we contacted Dani to help with our plans. She and Karen both helped us work out an itinerary. Originally I had thought about ending our safari time with a trip to Madagascar, but they steered us to Zanzibar and that turned out great. When we arrived at Arusha, our greeter met us at the plane doors at the top of the stairs. My wife was having some balance issues, so he helped her down the stairway and commandeered a wheelchair for her. He whisked us through the three health stations and helped retrieve our luggage before we met our driver who sped us off to the Arusha Coffee Lodge. We stayed were a couple of days to accustom ourselves to the time change. Sikeleli saw that we had the cabin closest to the restaurant. They communicated those instructions to the other lodges as well, so my wife didn’t have far to walk to our lodgings. All of the Elewana properties we used as safari bases were wonderful. The levels of service were outstanding... Read More

South Africa

Traveled May 2021. This trip exceeded all of our expectations. We booked our honeymoon in South Africa because we thought this would be a once in a life time experience. After our first couple days, we knew we’d want to come back in the future. The entire experience is unbelievable. From morning drives to sundowners, we always saw something different. Getting so up close and personal with the animals was the highlight of our entire trip. Karen went above and beyond to help us stay in our budget and have us options for our honeymoon. She was extremely responsive and flexible with our requests. Karen was so unbelievably helpful! She stayed in touch with us throughout our entire trip. Helped us with COVID restrictions and made sure we were having a good time! We have already recommended her to a few people looking to travel to South Africa! Thank you Karen!

South Africa, Zimbabwe, Botswana

Traveled August 2021. One of the primary things that made this safari so enjoyable, was the ease of working with the Sikelil team. Danni, Karen and Fungai were all incredibly knowledgeable and very accessible. All questions were answered quickly and completely so we went into the trip with the confidence that all details from transfers to tours to accommodations would be taken care of. Everything was flawless so we did not have to worry about a thing! The quality of the accommodations and tour guides was top notch and the extra personal touches such as a gift waiting in our room or a text from Mark when one of us was under the weather, were greatly appreciated! We are already looking forward to our next trip back to Africa and can't wait to plan it with you again! The wildlife viewing was phenomenal. Not only did we see a plethora of giraffes, zebras, kudu, impala, warthogs, baboons and hippos, but we were lucky enough to witness lionesses hunting their prey, a leopard after a recent kill, a mother lioness taking care of her 2 cubs and a leopard protecting her baby in the tree. One of the non-safari highlights for... Read More

South Africa

Traveled April 2021. Our family trip to Kruger national park in Africa was one of the most amazing and memorable times we have experienced. We are worldwide travelers and I have worked with many agencies but Sikeleli travel team is one of the best. We had several airline glitches and they were endlessly attentive to helping us and made certain that we were flawlessly connected when we arrived. The places that we stayed were spot on with matching our dreams. Everyone in our family of six adults praised our entire experience. During our Safari resort stay we saw endless animal sightings, including may babies. The Rangers and trackers were kind and incredibly knowledgeable and informative. The resorts were spectacular. They beautifully blended with nature, providing premiere lodging. We had wonderful dining experiences and the service was incredible. You would think traveling during Covid could not run as smoothly as this trip did.

Zimbabwe

Traveled June 2021. Sharing the experience with family as we met wonderful people, saw many animals, and ate wonderful food. The whole experience was wonderful and we didn't have to do all the planning, just tell Sikeleli what we desired to do while there! We had a worry free vacation within our budget! During this time of uncertainty in travel many changes had to be made and our trip was delayed twice making - it actually ended up happening over a year after it was scheduled. Sikeleli was there with us - patient and able to help in every way to make our dream a reality. This is our second trip with Sikeleli travels and both times we have had a wonderful time with our fun and professional guides, saw many amazing animals and scenery and met many wonderful people. It has been a far better time then if we would have tried to set up our own travels. Having wonderful travel agents who keep in touch, know what documents need filled out, and have amazing patience, can call the different tour sights and get them set up as well as set up our itinerary (with our input of course!)makes...

Zimbabwe

Traveled July 2021. I felt very safe in Africa. Sikeleli was in touch with me from the minute I landed at JNB. I did not feel scared or threatened at any time. I was terrified before I went. Especially because as a woman and I was travelling alone.. Everyone was always in contact with each other... guides, drivers (very friendly, welcoming and funny). The transfers were on time and I flew in a 2 seater airplane for the first time. It was fun. I just trusted the people in charge. Victoria falls was nice. I felt safe going for walks outside of my lodge at Shongwe Lookout. And the wild life was absolutely amazing at all of my camps. Lots of elephants. We saw wild dog. African cat. Serval. Mongoose roan antelope. Sable. Impala. Warthog. Leopard. lion. Giraffe. Zebra. Hippo. Buffalo. Cheetahs. I fed elephant and rhinos at Imire! And the food was fantastic.
