Jenniffer & Avi – Canada

Jenni set up our entire trip to South Africa and it was above and beyond what we could have ever hoped for. She was so organized and well thought out. She also made it flexible in certain ways and our guide Paul really made our lives so easy!
Can’t wait to come back!
Highly recommend Jenni and her team!
Thank you for making this trip the best ever!

Stephen & family – UK

Our trip was wonderful.

We had a fantastic time at Kariega, everything was superb, great lodge with pool and stunning views, games drives superb with fantastic ranger who went the extra mile to ensure we had a great time. He customised our game drives to meet our requirements which meant not always following the crowd and searching for particular species. I would thoroughly recommend Kariega as a top destination for Safari within the SE Africa region. The food was good as could be expected and always plenty of choice. We met great people and had a lot of fun.

I would thoroughly recommend Southey Travel for booking and arranging holidays in South Africa, in particular you recommended a superb Safari and made all the arrangements. We had no issues at all.

Laura & Barry – USA

The trip was amazing. Better than we could have ever expected.

The people, food, accommodations, service, sights were amazing. Best we’ve ever encountered during any of our
travels.

The coordination of all you planned for us was flawless!! Thanks for helping make this trip the best of our lives!

Amy & Jim – USA

My husband and I had an amazing trip to South Africa!
We decided to go initially for a wedding and were put in touch with Jenni who developed a fabulous itinerary for us (city touring, kayaking, vineyards, safari).

She was very knowledgeable, listened well to our requests, concerns and budgetary parameters.

She made some wonderful suggestions and we would highly recommend using Jenni for anyone traveling to South Africa.

Justin & Julia – USA

Jenni was a dream to work with! She was extremely knowledgable, organized, and on top of every detail of our trip.
She truly helped us create the honeymoon of our dreams and took so much of the stress out of planning because we knew we could trust her.
In the end so much of our trip was even better than we could have imagined. Thanks again, Jenni!

Radhika & Dan – Australia

We enjoyed 2.5 weeks in South Africa in Jan 2016, thanks to Southey Travel.
Jenni was very attentive, efficient and knowledgeable when it came to working on our itinerary, which was done seamlessly over email.

She tailored our holiday to suit our personality and needs, and the end product did not disappoint! The entire holiday ran smoothly without any glitches, which meant we were able to concentrate on relaxing and having a great time. Everything (flights, transfers, accommodation, safari, car hire) was taken care of, and we were in awe of the exceptionally high standard of service we enjoyed throughout.

We were delighted by the very personalised and friendly service, and we would highly recommend Southey Travel to others. Best holiday we have ever had (and we travel a lot!).

Kara & Andy – Australia

We planned our trip to South Africa with Jenni from Southey Travel, and the whole experience could not have been easier.
We let Jenni know where we wanted to go, and a vague timeline, and she organised every last detail.

The accommodation was all perfect, and in great locations. The best part was having a driver that picked us up and dropped us off for all transfers,to and from the the airport, as well as between all our hotels.
We didn’t have to lift a finger in terms of organisation, it was all done for us, and it allowed us to just relax and enjoy it all.

Jenni was always available to us via email or phone, not that we needed to call her at all on our trip, as everything ran exactly to plan, and we were provided with a great print out itinery with all the details and information we might need.

We would definitely recommend Jenni and Southey Travel to anyone planning a trip to South Africa.

Jamie – Australia

Dealing with Jenni and Southey Travel was an absolute pleasure. They looked after everything for me and ensured my time in South Africa was easy and without any hassles. I could not recommend Southey Travel more highly (and especially Jenni). I will be coming back to South Africa next year and will definitely be booking through Southey Travel again!

Lauren & Warren – SA

My husband and I were looking for a romantic getaway as we hadn’t had a holiday together since we had had kids, which is 6 years ago.

I asked Jenni to recommend a nice place for us. She found us the perfect spot in Knysna, Under the Milkwood. We were blown away with how beautiful this spot was and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Thanks Jenni for your brilliant recommendation and professional service.

Steve & Sue – UK

My wife and I were invited to Cape Town to celebrate our friends 40th Birthday. As we were going to do some travelling around South Africa for a couple of weeks prior to the celebration weekend, they recommended Southey Travel to us to organise our route and accommodation, and were put in touch with Jenni.
Jenni’s professional service and speed of response was second to none. Not only that but she also suggested Skyping each other which we thought was a great idea as it gave us and her a chance to discuss our plans in greater detail. Jenni was also so patient with us as on more than one occasion we changed our minds!

The accommodation choices Jenni made for us and the locations were perfect, and of the highest standard……..luxury but with a personal touch, stunning even. She even phoned the Guest house at our first location and spoke to us to check to make sure we had arrived safely and that all was okay…..brilliant service.

We had an amazing time, this being our second visit to this beautiful, stunning and friendly country and will most certainly be coming back very soon.
We would, without a shadow of a doubt
recommend Jenni and Southey Travel to organise your itinerary when visiting South Africa. The service is professional and Jenni will go out of her way to make sure everything is perfect for your perfect holiday.

We both would like to thank you Jenni for making our visit to your beautiful country a truly memorable one. We will be back and we will be using the services of Southey Travel again in the future. And we would recommend Southey Travel to any of our friends and family to organise their perfect holiday to South Africa.

Merlyn – Zambia

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all the help you gave me and for booking us into an
amazing place.
The people and the rooms and food were outstanding. Many thanks to you too from all the
people that I went with too.

Thank you once again.

Very happy Customer

Corinne & Bryant – USA

When it comes to expert advice about Cape Town and vacations customized to your exact taste, look no further than Southey Travel. My husband and I travel frequently and can tell you that nothing beats a good agent – they can make or break your trip.

Jenni at Southey Travel is the best agent we have ever worked with. As a lifelong resident of Cape Town, she was able to provide firsthand knowledge and insider access to all things Cape Town. She planned the perfect vacation for us and handled every curve ball we threw her way (last-minute spa treatments, change requests to hotels and transfer times in the middle of the trip) like a pro. Jenni was there for us 24/7, before, during, and after our trip.

This was truly a 5 star experience! Thank you Southey Travel!

Andy & Winnie – Ghana

My husband and I always thought of having a memorable honeymoon after our wedding at a place outside our country. We contacted Southey Travel to plan a perfect honeymoon for us having Cape Town as our city choice.

We can say for a fact that though the period was a short one, Southey Travel made the best out of it for us and today we always want to travel back to Cape Town through the help of Southey Travel. Everything from arrival to departure was on point.

Jenni, thank you for giving us the perfect memorable honeymoon. We look forward for another visit on our anniversary. Much love

Horst & Eva – Germany

My wife and me were invited to a wedding in Cape Town. For this flying visit we were recommended to Jenni from Southey Travel for assistance in organizing our stay. With almost immediate reply to our email, Jenni took care of all our needs.

Everything from there on went just perfect. No matter if first time or regular visitors to South Africa, we can strongly recommend Jenni as a “safe bet” for getting perfect service with a lovely personal touch.

Larry & Mary – USA

Mary and I are back in the USA and as the Holidays wind down and we get back to our lives we can’t stop remembering and talking about our fabulous trip to South Africa.

We had the most amazing experience of our lifetime. Your Country is beautiful, the people warm and welcoming and the experience just so memorable.

We can’t thank you and Southey Travel enough for all you did. Your service and responsiveness was more than we could have expected. I know how difficult it was for you since we were continents and timezones away and we kept changing our minds and itinerary. Your patience and follow through made everything on our end so easy. Every place you picked for us was spot on what we anticipated. The locations and accommodations were of the highest caliber. Every time we arrived at a new place we kept saying “this is the best” and then sure enough the next was just as nice. You had an uncanny way of figuring out how to balance our interests, travel schedule and budget. The only disappointment for us was that the three weeks wasn’t enough time, and certainly we don’t fault you for that.

Mary and I have told all our friends and family that they need to visit South Africa and that will be our excuse to return with them. It goes without saying that we would advise anyone traveling there to use you and Southey Travel for all arrangements. Certainly we will when we return.

Thank you again for arranging a trip we will cherish forever. If I can help you in anyway here in the States don’t hesitate to ask. We look forward to chatting again and planning our return. 2016 ?? maybe

Candice, Paul & kids – UK

Having recently visited the Garden Route Game Lodge I can say I was rather impressed. If you want the “Safari/Game Drive” experience but don’t want to travel too far inland or up-country, this is the place for you.
The staff were friendly and accommodating from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. We were traveling with two little ones (11 months & 4 yrs old) and were pleasantly surprised to find a toy box in the room to entertain the kids, as well as mini bath robes and two play areas.

When we went for a game drive they arranged it so we joined other families with small kids which was great as they all kept each other entertained. The rangers were friendly and knowledgeable and liased with each other enabling us to see most of the animals the lodge had to offer. (Lions, Zebra, Elephants, Hippo’s, Giraffes etc).

Our package included two game drives both followed by a buffet style meal in their main restaurant. Accommodation was lovely and spacious and I hasten to add I had the best night sleep in their comfy beds – although this might have been down to the wonderful spa treatment I had in their new spa.

We have been here 3 times now, and although it seems to be getting bigger each time we visit, their service still remains outstanding.

Kathy & Richard – USA

We enjoyed our visit to Gondwana Game Reserve. Our guide was knowledgeable and the mountains provided a beautiful safari landscape for watching the animals that now make Gondwana their home. While the reserve does not yet have the abundance of animals found in other locations, they are providing for animals which are becoming endangered in other areas and offering Garden Coast visitors an opportunity to see them. The villas are quite spacious and comfortable and the meals were delicious. Thank you, Jenni, for your suggestions, information on driving and efficiency in making our arrangements.

Barry & Martha – UAE

It was simply a pleasure to deal with Jenni at Southey Travel. Nothing was too much trouble. We received a
personal and professional service before and during our visit to South Africa and I would have no hesitation in recommending her and Southey Travel to anyone who wants to visit South Africa for pleasure or business.

Rachel & Adam – UK

Thank you so much for organising the perfect honeymoon for us. From the first email from Jenni we felt that we were going to have an amazing time! We had different options to choose from and the advice she gave us was perfect. I have never been anywhere so amazing as South Africa. Every day was so much better than the last! Southey Travel really know what they are doing! I would highly recommend them!

Dhashen – India

Thank you for your wonderful help, Jenni. Your speed and efficiency are highly appreciated.

Kathy & David – USA

Wow wow wow! What more can we say about South Africa! Southey Travel’s friendly & prompt service immediately set us at ease. Travel from the US we were unsure of what to expect from South Africa but Jenni answered all our questions and concerns.
Our trip from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth and the Kruger National Park was all we could have imagined and more! We wish we could have stayed longer as there is so much more we still wanted to see and do! But we will certainly be back soon and Southey Travel will be our first point of call! We have raved about South Africa to all our friends and we’re sure they will be visiting your beautiful country soon. Thank you Jenni for arranging a seamless trip.

Kevin & Ruth – Australia

From the first moment we started corresponding with Jenni we felt taken care of. She gave us various options to choose from as well as exciting tours that we would not have found ourselves. Her professional but friendly manner was greatly appreciated. Our South African holiday has created wonderful memories that will last a lifetime! We look forward to returning to South Africa again soon and will certainly use Southey Travels services again!

Ellen & John – SA

My husband and I recently travelled to Knysna and Plettenberg Bay for our 10th wedding anniversary. Since we wanted “something special” for this happy occasion, we asked Jenni from Southey Travel to assist with our bookings. Not only did she book the most wonderful places to stay, we also got the best possible prices and the most awesome VIP treatment wherever we went… everyone knew that we were on a mini-honeymoon (thanks to Jenni!). So we were greeted with champagne and messages and it was simply the perfect little get away! Thanks so much Southey Travel, we will certainly book all our trips with you!

Rob & Pam – SA

We booked a ‘bucket list’ trip for ourselves and a few friends through Southey Travel, the service was prompt, friendly and efficient. Questions were answered before they were asked! We will certainly use Southey Travel again!

Robert & Sam – USA

We recently travelled to South Africa from the USA, where we experienced an amazing holiday perfectly planned by Jenni. Everything was organized and executed to perfection, from our rental cars, to accommodation. If you want to use someone “in the know” rather than a generic travel company, Southey Travel is for you. From luxury accommodation to tiny gems, Jenni’s knowledge is astounding, and her pricing was consistently competitive. She is also a pleasure to work with. We also received excellent information about South Africa before leaving the USA so knew exactly what to expect & pack! Will highly recommend Southey Travel to anyone visiting South Africa.
