We wanted a tour which included the safari parks and Victoria falls and when we looked online Detour Africa came up. We emailed them and received a reply from Elana. She was most helpful in organising our trip and always responded promptly to questions via email. She was most efficient. The tour was thoroughly enjoyable and we had a superb... More

The people at Detour were highly responsive, helpful and friendly as we explored safari options for Johannesburg. Our trip was amazing the three-day safari was a 10! One recommendation, if you have the budget, fly up to the safari are via South African Air (great airline). The road trip from J-Burg was LOOOOOONNNNGGGG and once we got there, we immediately...

We were looking for a tour from South Africa that took us through to Victoria Falls. I found Detour Africa on line and knowing nothing about them, commenced contact. From the start Detour Africa's Louis Pierce was absolutely fantastic, responding immediately and making herself available by phone. Nothing was ever too much trouble and Louise's knowledge and advice was invaluable... More

I went on the 1-Day Pilanesberg Big 5 Safari with Detour Africa - it was a great experience! The pick-up from my lodging was timely and we had a pleasant drive to Pilanesberg with our guide, Braham. Braham told us a bit about the history of Pilanesberg on the drive over. At the park, we met up with a few... More

Me and my girlfriend booked a trip through this company in March 2016. We knew approximately what we wanted to see but we got a lot of inspiration from the web page of Detour SA. We talked a lot to Elana and she was always quick in answering all our questions. We booked and paid 25 percent in advance. We... More

Just returned from this fantastic tour which was recommended by Wonder Woman Elana of Detour (who never seems to sleep) and fitted perfectly into our schedule. The highlights for my wife and I would be: 1. Getting close-up to family of rhinos (about 20 metres) on foot at the Matobo National Park; 2. Victoria Falls which was majestic even during... More

I booked 3 tours with Detour Africa (Best of Namiba 12d , Full Day Cape Peninsula Tour 1d, Shark Cage Diving 1d). Main reason was the perfect support and ultra fast response from Elana (it seems she never sleeps). She responsed to all my questions within a few hours and also explained the booking and payment process very clear. Payment... More
