Our Rating System
The African Blue Tours rating system was implemented in order to provide a frame of reference, based on our personal opinion for your expected level of luxury and overall customer experience on each of our packages.
Please note some packages may have multiple ratings due to optional accommodation styles.
There will only be a few packages afforded Platinum status where the hotels & lodges offer a “beyond luxury” experience at the very top end of the market.
Offering a consistent superb level of service and overall premium luxury experience, our Gold packages have the ‘wow factor’ and should satisfy the criteria of our most discerning clients.
Silver is our entry-level luxury category offering anything from a 3-5 star hotel or lodge, however will definitely be a well-run establishment with good service, excellent food and overall experience.
What our Bronze packages may lack in the luxury department, they will more than make up for in the overall tour or safari experience (location, game drives, etc) and vice versa.
