We thought we would be ticking the box for South Africa but Deborah’s thoughtful itinerary has really opened up the box for South Africa and potentially further afield in Africa. We had a mix of Cape Town, Krueger and Garden route. The safari was the highlight, so personal and totally way above expectation. But it was the detail, mix of different types of accommodation, character and also little tips and hints along the way that made it such an amazing trip. Keeping in touch with us and even meeting up in person made us feel so looked after. Our guide, Hanlo, also made sure we had a great tour of Cape Town and the Cape Tour. I’m a firm believer in using local expertise and I’m so glad we made the decision to use Elgin Africa and would use them again. I’ve already recommended them to friends who are looking to go to South Africa once we can travel freely again. So glad we got our trip in as it’s left us with so many amazing memories to help get us through this period. All down to Deborah and her team.

The trip planned for us by Deborah and Tara at Elgin Africa was nothing short of amazing. We came up with a base plan and they took it from there. From the boutique hotel in Cape Town to the Victoria Falls Hotel with its incredible history to the tented safari camp in Zimbabwe, everything was well organized and came through without any glitches whatsoever. All in-country land transfers were pre-arranged and were always on time (or early). The drivers were professional and we never felt unsafe while traveling. We did 3 private day tours in Cape Town; A winery tour in the Stellenbosch region, a tour of the Cape Peninsula, and cage diving with great white sharks (very highly recommended). The safaris in Zimbabwe and Botswana were absolutely incredible. All of the safari guides and drivers were all top-notch professionals and we enjoyed spending time with them and learning about their countries. They all had stories to tell. The food was also amazing; we were always surprised at the quality of the meals that were prepared for us. We would highly recommend Elgin Africa and Deborah for anyone looking to spend time in Southern Africa...you won't be disappointed!

This was an amazing trip thanks to Deborah & Tara! Before connecting with Elgin Africa, we tried setting up our own itinerary with Internet searches. I am so glad we didn't do this ourselves! Based on a friends recommendation, we looked for help from Elgin Africa. They figured out our interests and budget & set up an incredible trip. While we saw the obvious attractions in CapeTown (Robben Island, Table Mountain) Elgin Africa additionally set up a personalized tour of a local township, food and historical tour in Stellenbosch, the coolest accommodation in Elgin, eco-friendly shark cage diving, & stunning canopy tour. Next, we moved on to Mozambique in a rustic-chic upscale lodge, whitewater rafting, Devils Pool and more. Transportation was arranged for us at all stages including our next stop to an African Safari in Botswana. We would have never found these places without them! I tell all my friends that if they ever go to Africa, they must book through Elgin Africa!

Deborah planned an amazing few days for my family in Elgin. Everything was relaxing and super child friendly, the food and wine was delicious- from the guest house Elgin Vinter to all the wine farms. South Hill was our favorite wine farm to visit. Thank you Deborah for an unforgettable trip.
