I was looking forward to come to Africa for many years.And now I was more than happy to travel with you.This tour was beyond all my expectations and I want to express my deepest gratitude to Mike (Guide) and Thamzie ( Driver) for this incredible experience!
I felt immediately in love with the Beauty of the nature and the people I met.We had excellent Guides on all of our Game drives and wonderful accommodations.

I have travelled a lot in groups. But I can say that Mike and Thamzie have definitely made the difference in this trip.They walked the extra mile to make us happy.

Mike was just a wonderful and honest host with a good sense of humor. That helped me feel comfortable in a new group.He treated us as family and so we could bond together as a group and became close. Mike is fun to travel with and also very professionell and good organized.
His passion and enthusiasm for sharing his knowledge made my trip truly memorable.And I have learned a lot about life and the African culture.

Thamzie was a pleasure to travel with. His positive attitude and excellent driving skills made me feel safe at any time.He took good care of our belongings and made sure that the bus was clean and comfortable.He was punctual and always ready waiting for us. He is not only a good driver but also a good hearted companion.

So if you are looking for a breakout adventure and also good memories with heartwarming people, visit Botswana and Zimbabwe.

I definitely will come back

This was a packed tour where we went on lots of safaris, saw 4 of the Big 5, and had a wonderful tour guide, Nkossie, and in Namibia and Botswana, a bus driver called Rudolph who was great driving the rough roads of these 2 countries. The tour was hard going at times due to the rough roads, but Nkossie and Rudolph made it fun.

Dear Adrienne, Thank you for your great review. We are pleased to hear that you were happy with Nkossie and Rudolph, and saw 4 of the Big 5! Indeed some of the roads can be rough at times; road conditions change across the various countries, seasons and general use, and we rely on the national services of each country to grade and maintain the main roads regularly. Despite the bumps, we are happy to hear that you had fun on your trip! Best regards, The Jenman Safaris team

Will Lane of Jenman coordinated a fabulous trip for myself and my 14 year old grandson. We visited Cape Town, Kwa Tu, Johannesberg, and went on a Safari. All of the hotel bookings were excellent. He arranged the transports between hotels and airports as well as all the tours we took. He suggested He was attentive, provided excellent tips for our travels, was responsive to questions and it all went incredibly smoothly. I highly recommend working with Will!

Our experience traveling with Jenman in Southern Africa exceeded expectations. Lodging selections and meal choices at all locations were fresh and prepared with care. Our team leader Norbert and driver Thom are among the most knowledgeable, friendly, kind, and personable people we know. They made us laugh everyday and their persistence in trekking games on our wish list was amazing. Every step along the way was planned and executed with care while maintaining enough flexibility to accommodate personal and circumstantial needs. Each and every one in our group of ten felt that our personal needs and welfare were the most important thing to them. We were proud to call them our travel family. My wife and I are already making plans for our next Africa trip with Jenman.

We visited the bush and had Tom and Norbert as our guides. Both were entertaining, informative, expert, trackers, and compassionate people.

Each and every day they asked us what we wanted to see as far as the animals go; and they did the best to achieve that. When we didn’t see the requested animals during the day we went out at night. They pointed out the tracks that the animals left had an idea of where they would be going and how long ago they left those.

Norbert had a great sense of humor and was easy to tease, he laugh at himself as he laughed at us.

Tom took on the challenge of finding my lost luggage, which took five days to catch up to me. When he did find it he did not hesitate to take me to the nearest airport so that we could get it, making certain that everything was in place and then I was satisfied

Both knew animals their habitat to find them where to find them breeding grounds.

Thank you both for giving me the experience of a lifetime. I will treasure my heart as a treasure you also.

Our trip was perfect, Jenman Safari Tours are very well organised. Our guide Norbert, was amazing. He went above and beyond to ensure we were having a fantastic experience. Our accommodation throughout the 15 days was more than we expected. Service and food was also amazing. Tham, our driver was also excellent, he and Norbert made a great team. The wildlife sightings were sensational thanks to Norbert and the game drivers at each lodge. Norbert’s knowledge of wildlife and local culture and his wonderful sense of humour and caring nature made our 15 days very special.

We toured Botswana and Zimbabwe, ending in Victoria Falls. The wildlife we saw was phenomenal, and the lodges at which we stayed were beyond expectations. Our guide, Norbert, made the trip. He was very personable, knowledgeable, and always available, going above and beyond. Our driver, Thamm, completed our group. He was friendly and considerate and part of our “ family”. We could not have asked for a better experience.
