Hello Marcel,We had a fantastic holiday in wonderful South Africa. Cara and you made it just right for us.Amazing accommodations we had and the tips & tricks we received from the 2 of you were very helpful. Everything was very well arranged!We really miss the South African atmosphere already. Our entire family would like to thank Cara and you for the bush experience you gave us during our holiday in South Africa.Greeting, Pascal, Marjolein, Tim & Noa
To everyone going on holiday to South Africa, I would advise to contact Marcel of Affordable Africa Safaris.He arranged all accommodations for us for a trip from Johannesburg to Durban. He did this within a week, so very fast and in incredibly great places. From places in the middle of the bush for safari to nice guest houses in town.Everything paid in advance, so we did not have to worry about that during our holiday. He also provided us with useful information about the country, do’s and don’ts and emergency contact numbers.Well arranged! Thanks again for all your help.Mattijs Hoogenbosch
We had a wonderful holiday in South Africa! Because we were not known in the country, we found it very difficult to determine a route and a specific area to visit.Especially because we only had one week to travel. Marcel composed a trip for us including car hire and beautiful lodges to stay overnight (Blyde River Canyon lodge, Rissington Inn in Hazyview)We drove the Panorama route with its beautiful views and after that we spend 3 nights in Shiduli Game lodge in Karongwe. We saw so so many great things during our game drives, the Big 5 and so much more….. beautiful sunrises and sunsets, birds and nature. (See pictures)Our compliments to Marcel for his assistance and for answering all our questions (we had many?) lightning fast.Thanks Marcel (and Cara) for this unforgettable journey.The Marinho de Azevedo family.
Dear Cara & Marcel,We want to thank you and Marcel for all what you did for us. We had a great time in the Kruger Park and saw all animals we wanted. I did not expect to see so much in this periode of the year.We saw everything.4 times the leopard, 3 times the cheeta, a lot of Hyena’s, 4 times jackal, a lot of elephants, lions 4 times, rhinos 6 together, wild african cat, buffalo’s, giraffs, wild dogs, and all others antelopes, zebra’s, crocs, kudu, waterbok, baboons, wildebeest, turtles, snail, insects.We always came in August or November and that was also great but I thought because of the long grass and trees full of leaves we will not see so many animals as we saw before.I come back at maybe 23 of 24 May with a girlfriend of me and if I need assistent by making a booking I will let you know.Thanks again it was great.Regards, Claudia and Richard Nieuwkamp
We have made a wonderful trip to South Africa, where we stayed in 3 lodges. All 3 were different, but all so beautiful.At the Windmill retreat we could recover from the journey and here we had our first safari. At Blyde River Canyon lodge we enjoyed the beautiful surroundings and the Panorama Route. Next we stayed at Bateleur Safari Camp, which was the cherry on the already delicious cake! What a treat and such an amazing place.We had 6 safaris with excellent guiding, which was also very nice for our kids of 10 and 13. We learned a lot and saw a lot, had delicious food everywhere we stayed and slept well.Marcel and Cara, you made our dream come true. You fulfilled our wishes, we could do no better. Thanks for this special experience, but also for all the tips and guidance. It was great! What is left now is the great experience and beautiful pictures.Regards, the Kamping family
Hello Marcel,Thank you for your email to us after arriving back home. We had an amazing journey trough Botswana!It was so special to see all the wildlife when driving trough the Reserves. We nearly have seen the big 5. Only the rhino we haven’t seen this time but as a fantastic alternative we came across Cheetah and that was a bonus.We would like to thank you for arranging this wonderful trip for us to Botswana. Everything was well arranged, the 4×4 was just great. We have the feeling that we have seen the most beautiful parts of Botswana during this trip.There was a double booking at Baines Baobab camp site so they offered us to stay at South Camp which was no problem for us at all.Maybe this is good for you to know. The staff was very helpful so everything was arranged after a while.All the best, Milan Rikhof
Hi Marcel,We are back to where we started, Windhoek. We had a great and energetic trip around the south of Namibia. Yesterday we both had the feeling to be fulfilled of the beautiful different landscapes with immense dryness and emptiness. Everything has worked out well, also because you organised it neatly for us. Except for one flat tire, we had no problems with the car.Tomorrow we depart for Uganda. This will be quite a change to a wet, green and busy environment, but we are both up to it.Thank you for everything you did to make it an unforgettable trip!Ps. Because you asked me specifically, compared to 20-25 years ago, Sesriem and Sossusvlei have changed into big touristic places. The intimate about Sesriem has disappeared.Regards,Karo and Walter
