What Clients’ Say

We really appreciate our clients feedback on their African Blue experience as we are constantly striving to improve our service levels and selection of tour and safari experiences.

“Our recent tour of South Africa was a superb combination of wildlife, scenery and culture. We found the 13 day South African Explorer itinerary on the African Blue website and booked everything by email through David Smith and Julia. Our two guides were knowledgeable, helpful and great company. During the first week, Gerard took us from Johannesburg to Durban, encompassing several game parks and the spectacular Panorama Route. After flying from Durban to Port Elizabeth, Stefan took us from there to Cape Town along the magnificent Garden Route. We were incredibly lucky to have some amazing wildlife encounters as well as being struck by the beauty and grandeur of the South African landscape. We would have loved more time in every location, but wouldn’t have cut out a thing. The accommodation on this tour was quite varied but all wonderful. Food everywhere was great and very affordable, as were the excellent local wines. We found South African tourism to be well-developed and sophisticated and everyone in the industry cheerful and helpful. We enjoyed meeting David in Cape Town and chatting about our experiences. We would recommend this trip to anyone wanting to see the best of South Africa in 2 weeks. It definitely leaves you wanting to see more!”
