Guest Feedback

  • "So, my family are ready for their trip this week. I just wanted to make sure they get met everywhere just like Ronny and I did two years ago. We had such a great experience and I want to make sure my family has the same. Thank you for everything."

  • "I want to take the time to thank you both for the tips and advice you provided our family with for Cape Town. We LOVED the city and hope to return one day soon. Our safari to Botswana was one we will never forget and the three days in Cape Town were amazing. Everything that TAS lined up (Chapman’s Peak Drive, Boulders, Cape Point, Two Oceans restaurant, Table Mountain, Cheetah rescue, Stellenbosch, etc.) was impeccable and we would highly recommend TAS to other friends."

  • "I can’t thank you enough for putting together what was truly a once in a lifetime experience in Africa. I am going through my 16,000+ pictures taken during the trip to find some of the best for a photo book and DVD slideshow. We were very impressed with all the TAS representatives. They made us feel extra special!!! The accommodations were incredible for the entire trip! I have forwarded your information to a friend who will be in touch with TAS soon. She loved the pictures I showed her and can’t wait to book. I will be in touch soon with more stories, pictures and comments on our vacation. Randy Carr”

  • “Overall, this may be the best trip we have ever taken. We loved every day, every moment and every exciting experience.The safari part was the very best. Botswana was wonderful, seeing the animals up close was mind boggling. Mombo and Zarafa should be highly recommended to anyone looking for a special safari experience. Mombo had the very best game viewing and Zarafa was a close second. The guides at both camps are very special and they truly make the trip since you are with them seven hours a day. The camp hosts are wonderful in that they made us feel like invited house guests. The accommodations are over the top.Cape Town and the Stellenbosch was also very worthwhile but they simply can not compete with the animals. We really enjoyed the food and sights in the Cape Town area. It is a beautiful city with friendly and welcoming people. The wine country is stunning. What beauty and what great wines to taste. Leeu Estates was unique and we would also recommend it.Louise you did a great job organizing our trip. Your work was faultless. Your creativity was essential and much appreciated. You made everything seamless and oh so easy. We would not hesitate for a second to recommend you to others.Thank you for your guidance, your direction and your patience. We love you a lot.Many, many thanksDavid and Susan Scholes”

  • “A simple note to thank you very much - it's only day one and it's more than we expected. Everything has run so smoothly. We had David today as our guide around Nairobi and he was outstanding. The David Sheldrick Foundation was by far a huge highlight. We adopted an elephant! The lunch at Karen Blixen restaurant was honestly one of the best meals ever! Here are a couple of photos for you to see how happy we are! The package you sent was extremely kind. We love the hats and the packs. Wishing you the best!”

  • "Simply an extraordinary adventure! The family had a truly amazing experience with our first introduction to Africa and you co-ordinated it expertly. Very much appreciated. Our final two nights in Cape Town were wonderful and the One&Only accommodations were perfect. We will recommend you highly to our friends."

  • "Just wanted to say thank you for sending us to Angama. This place is so unbelievable I am lost for words - it feels like this is one of the top resorts I have ever been to. Amazing atmosphere and peaceful vibe. Also thank you for the gift packs I just love the lightweight caps for tennis - you are taking it to another league beyond my wildest expectations. I am going to tell everyone about this place!"

  • "Thank you for encouraging us to come to Franschhoek. I think it is now my favorite place in the world. Leeu [Estates] is excellent and the vineyard property out of this world. We have decided to spend our last day here and have already contacted Ali to pick us up tomorrow at 4pm to head straight to the airport. This has been the perfect way to end our amazing 2 week African family adventure."

    Eve Rounds
  • "Thanks very much for your help in planning and putting the details together for our trip to Cape Town and Londolozi. We had a truly fabulous time, greatly enhanced by Ali's thoughtful and considerate guidance in Cape Town. Londolozi was beautiful and most impressive, and all our travel between Cape Town, Londolozi and the return to Johannesburg was flawless. La Petite Ferme, in Franschhoek, was a true delight for lunch on our tour the next day. Thanks again for putting together a most enjoyable but far too short visit to your country. We hope to be back again, soon."

  • 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
