  • "I just wanted to thank you for all your help in organizing our visit to Angama Mara; it was well worth the wait! See attached some pictures of our family breakfasts out in the field, which were probably the most enjoyable for us. We will be using you again in the future!"

  • Marco is the Gold Standard for YPO Africa Safaris. As a YPO member and former International Board member, his company is my best recommendation. I have been on seven safaris and have had extraordinary experiences when Marco’s company has taken care of me.

  • Our holiday was truly the trip of a lifetime. Watching my daughter be stimulated every minute was truly rewarding. She loved learning about South Africa’s history and adored the safari; we both fell in love with the coastline views and of course, the warmth of the people we met everywhere. We can’t wait to come back! All our  arrangements were superbly handled by Timeless Africa Safaris. I can’t thank you enough for all your efforts—we will treasure our memories forever.

  • On behalf of Mr. & Mrs. Irwin Jaeger, I want to thank you for everything you did to facilitate the most wonderful trip to South Africa, Botswana and Zambia. Your efforts were exemplary.  The Jaegers’, as well as Jeffrey & Kristen, had an adventure that will not soon be forgotten.  Everything went according to plan -- all transportation, transfers, flights, safaris, meals, accommodations were superb.  It could not have gone more smoothly. Thank you again for all of the organizing, the communications, and the considerations on the Jaegers’ behalf. Sincerely,

  • We loved our trip! I only wish Cape Town was closer. We will definitely be back. Phinda was incredible. The staff was so warm, knowledgeable and accommodating. We saw everything we had hoped to see. We did get very close to many animals and loved the experience. Our driver in Cape Town was Allie and we loved him. He went above and beyond and made sure we saw everything we wanted to see. Overall, this was one of the most incredible vacations our family has had and we would highly recommend it to anyone who asks. Thanks for all of your help.

  • Many thanks for the wonderful experience. We've had a great time and are looking forward to visiting Africa again. Every aspect of the trip worked like a Swiss clock and we were really pleased with the organization of the trip. We'll be sure to refer our friends to you (already started on that…).

  • The trip was really wonderful and especially the safari was beyond our expectations. The accommodation, the food, the staff, we were very much satisfied. Since the safari was one of the highlight of our trip,we were very excited encountering so many animals, including the lion cubs! The other highlight was Victoria Falls which was spectacular and the hotel was very well located. The trip was both adventurous and inspiring thanks to two wonderful guides. Finally we would like to mention the Pot Luck Club restaurant you booked for us. We've been lots of nice restaurants in the world and this was one of our best! Thank you so much to make this trip be one of our unforgettable life experience.Andre

  • Finally back in London and slowly adapting to "post wedding" life and now have the time to reflect on the wedding weekend. A month has gone by, since that beautiful celebration and having received some of the photos, we are still amazed by how well it all went and how incredible the trip to Cape Town was, for so many. This was mainly due, to all the wonderful people who were extremely instrumental, in making Gregg and Kim's fairy tale dream, become a truly magical reality. Our most sincere and grateful thanks to you and your team for all the support, care, advise, help and guidance given to our guest, with all their travel arrangements, no matter how small. You were all amazing and you made sure, their time spent in our spectacular Cape Town, was an unforgettable, comfortable and happy experience. They all left, with so many precious memories and a determination to come back again.Many Thanks for everything, it is all very much appreciated and ensured the wedding was unique and very special. We could not have done it without you. With Love Bernard, Dayle, Gregg, Kim and Radha. xxx

  • Londolozi was terrific and the hostess, guide, tracker and all were just terrific. During first 2 hrs there, at suite 2 (thank you) we were visited by a family of elephants (2 babies, 3 teens, 2 elders) just a few feet off from pool. After a while I went in to get some wine and spotted the door open in the entrance room n then a trio of baboons eating the comp candy. When they saw me they jumped up on the table and grabbed the jars with the cookies n liquorice returned in from the pool and fled with the goodies and jars. I got lori inside and they sat on our deck almost laughing at us while they devoured the goodies. 49 mins later we went out for our first drive. A ton of fun ! Rich

  • We would like to thank you for the excellent organisation of our trip up to the last minute with the welcome at Johannesburg airport which wasn’t at all expected !!!!  We have enjoyed every part of it. All the hotels were fabulous, the food was excellent everywhere and the cherry on the cake was Kwandwe Game Reserve with our private villa and the staff who was so nice !!!! We discovered Cape Town and his surroundings in perfect conditions thanks to Allie and your advices about the program were judicious.  This trip will remain as outstanding in our memories and I will not fail to recommend your agency in case of.  Hope to need you in the future for a new trip !!!! All the best and regards Isabelle and Alain

  • It's been a super super trip! Chris at Sussi & Chuma was a very special guide. He made us feel the serenity of Africa and so sensitive to Sydney as well as all of us. The sanctuary was just a beautiful beginning. The animals-- so many monkeys and baboons and and hippos and much more! The Falls were spectacular. Not imagining anything could be better Ali brought us to Chobe and revealed the most awesomely imaginable game viewing. We saw elephants - we saw them playing and splashing in the river with the hippo just near by us in the water. Thank you so much for all the preparations and the welcoming packets fanny packs - it was truly the trip of a life time. Kristine and family

All of you did a wonderful job and our recent (too short) stay in South Africa has become unforgettable for both of us, that’s for sure. That is why everyone involved in this deserves a big compliment and a heart-felt THANK YOU !!!!!!! from both of us.

  • We’re absolutely SAD to leave Mnemba- and this adventure has exceeded our expectations on so many levels. Thank you for all of your planning for this trip Kim. The &Beyond 4 adventures have  simply that -and beyond! The only possible complaint is being served three fabulous meals daily - and loving them all.

  • Enjoyed our summer break in SA very much. Thanks for organizing the garden route hotels – we enjoyed especially Tsala, but also Hunters had its own very distinctive charm. Zinzi also a very good restaurant, both for the food and sphere. Thanks also for the travel packs – very useful and the caps especially! David

  • I have arrived back in London and before I was enveloped by a year’s work, I wanted to email you to tell you how highly I rate you and your agency. Over the years I have as you can imagine used many agencies but I tell you that you and your colleagues are the most helpful and efficient that I have ever used and have no hesitation in recommending you. Again, many thanks, Warmest Stephen

  • The trip to South Africa that you planned was truly a trip of a lifetime. You took so much time to get to know us in order to personalize our itinerary. There was such thorough attention to detail, and that made our travel effortless. All of our guides were very knowledgeable. Of course, South Africa itself was amazing; what a beautiful country with such gracious people. We made a family pact to return to Africa and will certainly be looking to Timeless to create another memorable trip for us!

  • You were both such a pleasure to be with. Our group thoroughly enjoyed every experience you helped create for us and were so impressed by the gracious hospitality extended by everyone we met.  South Africa is truly an amazing country and even though I have visited several times before, this was indeed the most memorable trip of all.  Even our group dynamic was superb and you were both very much a part of it. Our safari at Landolozzi was spectacular and a great finale to our trip.

  • Upon a referral from a Guggenheim Trustee and the Tate, we were encouraged to contact Timeless Africa Safaris to assist us in organizing our Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum patrons' trip to South Africa in February 2015. During our week-long stay in South Africa. 24 of our most valued supporters traveled to Johannesburg and Cape Town. Timeless Africa Safaris coordinated a robust itinerary with insider's access to a wide variety of historic sites ranging from museums galleries, private collections, and artist's studios, allowing our group to become truly immersed in the South African arts and cultural landscape. The trip was described by our participants as unforgettable. The memories of our week in South Africa will certainly last a lifetime.
