Sikeleli Africa Safaris provided excellent service throughout the entire trip!

Every facet of this trip was thought through and executed to perfection.  It was obvious that Belinda Burrows (Sikeleli consultant) carefully thought through every detail of our trip. Belinda’s quick responses to our communications helped us address every aspect of our trip.  All the tours, the transportation and transfers that were arranged by Sikeleki was performed flawlessly, with superior service and professionalism.

Whenever I reflect back on our trip arranged by Sikeleli, the most enjoyable part of this trip is the comfort that we felt that every aspect of trip was thought thru and taken care of.  Being in a foreign country, the fact that the trip was well planned allowed us to enjoy ourselves!

The most memorable part of our trip  was how beautiful the countries and the people were!  Once again, by having all the logistics of the trip planned by Sikeleki, all of our fears and anxieties we were put to rest and we were able to enjoy the beauty of South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Botswana!  The interaction with the people at the Lodges were exceptional.  And the interactions with the Locals made us want to come back to Africa again!

We appreciated the detailed planning, transfers, lodging and tours that Belinda arranged for us.  B answered my many e-mail questions even while she was on her holidays taking her son to see schools!   All the arrangements went flawlessly! Belinda also personally met with us on the morning of the 16th.  This personal touch was very much appreciated.  Since we were communication so much over email, we appreciated meeting her in person to thank her for the wonderful arrangements during our first half of our trip!  Little did we know that as much as we enjoyed our trip to that point, it was about to get even better!

Our Cape Peninsula and Winelands tour with Capex was so memorable.  Our transfers and flights went flawlessly!  That was such a relief and allowed us to enjoy our trip even more!  The lodging at Batonka was beyond our expectations.  After getting checked in and settled by Adrian, it was a pleasant surprise to meet Fungai!  She took the time to meet us and reassure us that the Sikeleli Zimbabwe office was aware of our itinerary and available if we needed them!  Once again, it is always good to connect a name in the e-mails and a real person!  And our trip reached a crescendo with a stay at the Bakwena Lodge on the Chobe River!  The game drives and boat safaris were the highlight of our trip!  It sure made it hard for us to leave Africa!

As a result of the personal (and professional) attention to detail from your people, you can be sure that we will spread our great experiences with anyone that asks!!  I will not hesitate to endorse your company to our friends, family, colleagues or anyone we talk to who is even considering an African trip!  Please extend my sincere thanks to the wonderful people you employ at Sikeleki who worked hard towards making our a African holiday one that we will remember forever!!!

 If I could take this trip again, I would extend my trip!  I know that Sikeleli has more places to see and adventures to experience.  As time and my budget permits, I will be back to ask Sikeleli to arrange more wonderful, experiences for us!
