I booked two back-to-back safaris in South Africa with Rhino Africa for a solo adventure. While I typically prefer to do all my own trip planning and don't usually use agencies, I ultimately decided that having someone help with all the transportation logistics to and from camps, and also "boots on the ground" to help if anything went wrong made sense. Rhino's very positive reviews won me over and I had a great experience with them. About 6 months out, I came with a short list of lodges that I'd researched, and shared my travel style, preferences, and budget with the partner assigned to me (Cayleigh). I decided to book two nights each with Leopard Hills Reserve and Londolozi Tree Camp, and couldn't be happier with them, as well as all the smaller flights and transfers.

The only small hiccup was that, about a week before my trip I realized hadn't heard anything in a bit and so sent an email to check in and just re-confirm that everything was set...I found out that Cayleigh had left the company so I was quickly partnered with someone new (Gerhard). But he got up to speed quickly and I had his contact number for any questions or issues, so no issues at all--I was just glad I proactively reached out! I would definitely use Rhino Africa again for planning a safari on the continent!

Hello starshy926, Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us. We are so very happy your trip was a success every day. We always strive to do a near impeccable job when planning for and with you; however, when we are given such kind words by more than experienced and more independent travellers. It is an accomplishment we are proud of. One which we hope to always achieve for you and many of our clients. Thank you for entrusting your planning to us, and we look forward to hearing from you as soon as you're ready for another magical trip to our special Africa home. Best regards Unathi

Thank you to all those that previously provided reviews of Rhino Africa. It gave us the confidence to book with them and we were not disappointed. We chose a three-part adventure starting in Cape Town, then moving to Sabi Sands then Mauritius. From the beginning to the end of planning, flights, Safari, transportation, hotel, etc. Everything was extremely well planned out and everything happened on time as promised. Rooms at the Idube game reserve were as described and transportation showed up at every airport and resort on time. Drivers were professional and vehicles were newer and clean. We really appreciated Kristy and all of the help that she provided, including taking a phone call late evening one night when we had questions about our flights. We highly recommend Rhino Africa and we'll use them again when we come back!

We have just returned from our 2nd trip booked with Rhino Africa and, as with the first, had a great time! Bianca has been superb on both occasions in recommending and finalising our stays. In addition to the excellent service on booking, the local partners that Rhino Africa work with have looked after us in every detail, organising transfers and schedules with a smile. Looking forward to our next trip!

My wife and I used Rhino Africa/Icon Expeditions to book our honeymoon safari and a couple of nights in Jo’Burg. It was all so seamless. From the moment we got off the plane, they coordinated with someone to pick us up at the gate and move us quickly through customs and got us to our airport transfer. They took care of all bookings for the hotel, airport transfers and all flights inside of South Africa. They made things so easy for us.

A very special thank you to our travel consultant Gillian who ensured our honeymoon was the best experience imaginable. I would not hesitate to go use Rhino/Icon again, and would be so happy to work with Gillian again on our next adventure when the time comes.

We just completed a trip to the Okavanga Delta in Botswana organized by Desire Saayman. The trip was amazing!

We visited three different Sanctuary Retreats camps. The staff was welcoming wherever we went. Food was delicious.

Each camp we visited provided its own unique experience. The guides were all extremely knowledgeable. Learned so much about animal behavior. There is a rhythm to the day in the Delta!

Chobe Chilwero had great elephant viewing. It was also the only camp we were able to do a water safari due to the ongoing drought. The flood waters are on the way. It’s just taking longer than normal to get to the Delta this year.

Stanley’s Camp had the best animal sightings. Leopard, herds of Cape Buffalo, elephants, lions and the endangered Wild Dogs. We had baboons jumping on our tent during our afternoon nap. Felt like the trampoline park was open!!

Chief’s Camp accommodations were
fantastic. The villa was 1600 sq ft. Beautifully appointed. We were extremely comfortable there!!! We had a pack of hyena on our porch at 4:30am on our last night. They had their way with a blanket and an outdoor throw pillow!! Feathers everywhere on our deck. The throw pillow cover and feathers were found on the road leading out of camp!!

This was the second trip to Africa Des crafted for us. We went to South Africa in 2019. She is extremely detail oriented. We will come to her again for our next trip!! Thinking of Kenya, Tanzania and Vic Falls are on the list. Africa is addictive!!! Love it there.

Your detailed descriptions of the camps and the wildlife sightings are truly captivating. It sounds like you had unforgettable encounters, from elephant viewing at Chobe Chilwero to the thrilling moments at Stanley's Camp and the luxurious accommodations at Chief's Camp.

Glen helped me plan and deliver a surprise trip of a lifetime for my parents! From my first initial enquiry, Glen was fantastic in helping me put everything together, answering all my questions so quickly and even all the little details like informing the hotels of my parents special celebrations. He really made it a stress free experience and I felt reassured that Rhino Africa would deliver the most amazing holiday for my parents and they certainly did. My parents felt on top of the world from the moment they landed in Cape Town, put up in a beautiful hotel overlooking Table Mountain. Glen recommended places for them to visit and how to get round when there. After a few days, they flew over to the Timbavati Game Reserve in the Kruger National Park and it really was beyond their wildest dreams. The accommodation was great and they managed to see 4/5 of The Big 5, plus many many more animals. I honestly can’t thank Glen enough, he was amazing from start to finish and made my parents dreams come true, such a brilliant service! I would 1000% recommend Rhino Africa!!

Our amazing trip to South Africa was organized by Allison at Rhino Africa. We were a family of grandparents, young adults and 2 kids aged 11 and 8. The 11 year old has Celiac Disease and we were very concerned that he would need to get the Gluten Free food he needed at all the hotels and at the game park. Allison organized all this for us and it worked out beautifully! All our transport, accommodation and flights were perfectly well organized. Thanks to Rhino Africa it was a totally memorable trip!
Highly recommend!

Kristy Carthew of the Rhino Africa team ensured that we had a seamless trip from start to finish, from flights to hotel and transfers. We changed our minds a few times along the way but were always dealt with patiently and with our best interests at heart.

Everything is done extremely professionally and presented beautifully as well.

Thank you for making our first overseas trip as a family of four such a stress-free experience!

Thank you to Landy Kent Millar for putting this awesome trip together for us. We loved our time at Silvan safari- thanks for the recommendation! Landy was attentive and gave us excellent advice around when to travel and how to get there. The charter flight from Kruger to Silvan was a total win- seamless and part of the whole experience!

We were spoilt rotten!

Looking forward to your next suggestion, Landy!
