Southey Travel Testimonials

Read what some of our past clients have had to say about us.

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.
