Hi, just wanted to give you some feedback on our recent Africa trip. It was FABULOUS! It exceeded our expectations. We are really glad we went with the private tour plan rather than a big group on a bus. We were met everywhere and escorted to all the important sites.
The South Africa wine country is beautiful and our hotel, La Residence was just great. We had the same guide and driver through the wine country and into Cape Town. The guide was very personable and knowledgeable. Cape Town is truly beautiful and this history of the area is quite interesting as well. Our day-long drive around the Cape of Good Hope was a highlight with beautiful views, sightings of wild baboons and ostrich along the road, a ferry ride out to a seal island, and walk along the Boulders Beach where the African penguins are.

Though I haven’t physically been to the “real” Africa (only Egypt), I visited yesterday via a presentation by tour operator Salute Africa’s Victoria Weinstein. What a learning experience. Next hopeful stop: Africa!

I am so thankful for Victoria at Salute Africa, I travelled to South Africa for 3 weeks in September for my birthday and Victoria handled all of our accommodations perfectly, including private tours, swimming with sharks, safari’s and the beautiful Victoria’s Falls in Zimbabwe. My favorite was the Chode Water Villas in Namibia. I highly recommend Victoria from Salute Africa to handle all of your travel plans in South Africa. Thank you, Victoria for wowing me and allowing me to cross off a major bucket list vacation!!! Hands down, you’re the best!!!
My honeymoon couple that went to Zanzibar LOVED the properties and had an amazing time, so thank you, so much, for your recommendations and help.

They returned from their trip. No complaints and very happy. They thought the Chobe River Villas were really over the top. Allen said that they were the only two on the trip. I did not know that, but it made it very special for them.
You and your staff made me a star – many thanks.

I recently returned from a 2 week trip to Africa with 3 family members which was made easy and all the more enjoyable because of the fine attention to detail, follow-up and excellent customer service provided by Salute Africa. My travelling companions and I did not have to worry about details such as how to get from point A to B, dealing with customs and border crossings, or arriving at airports with sufficient time to meet our arranged flights. If your travel plans include a visit to Africa (and they should!), do not hesitate to call upon the great team at Salute Africa – I certainly will again!

Victoria, the trip was a huge success! Our client raved about everything. Thanks for your help. She particularly liked all her guides. She wants to go back one day with her husband. You made me look like a hero!!!

My husband and I just returned from our honeymoon in Kenya and Salute Africa provided us with an incredible experience from beginning to end. Our guide, Daniel, was friendly, knowledgable, and a wonderful driver during our 5-day safari in both Lake Nakuru and Masai Mara. We were able to see the Big 5 and tons of other animals on our game drives. If you plan on travelling to Kenya or Tanzania I highly recommend using Salute Africa to plan your trip!

Mr/Mrs. Steven Short just departed my Office with lots of Fotos of their Trip. They said it was the BEST Trip EVER. Very impressed with how smoothly it all went and the focus on every detail. Accommodations superb surpassed their expectations. Debra had a wonderful Birthday, thank’s to you. They were amazed at how friendly and helpful everyone was. All the game drives were a total success; they saw so much more than they could ever imagine and learned so much about S. Africa and the Safari experience.
They thank you for a wonderful and well-executed Trip.
Thank you so much Victoria, you are the BEST.
Hope to send some more customers your way.

So, Africa was the most amazing, incredible, and spectacular destination I have ever visited. I cannot wait to come back and visit more countries within this fantastic continent. I have told everyone, I have left a piece of my heart in Africa and I know I will be back. That being said… let’s get started on a new trip for my group.
South Africa FAM
To think I came so close to not going would have been a huge error in my life. Thank you Al for bringing that to my attention when you did.
Where to begin……This trip far surpassed any and all expectations of what I thought Africa was about.
The accommodations were 5* properties. All the modern conveniences with regional architecture, décor, and ambiance. Many offered Spa, massage and other specialty services at reasonable prices.
Impeccable service from hospitable staffs that often greeted us with Champagne and snacks on arrival and warm farewells on departures. My favorite was the Chobe Lodge, oh my imagination fulfilled. It was so “Out Of Africa” that I was living a dream. Complete with outdoor dining and reception areas. The entire structure is made from wood, rattan, and thatched roofs. Plants, trees and exotic foliage encased the whole property. Beds enclosed in mosquito netting just topped it off!
I just concluded a post-trip conversation with Mr. Williams, and he was effusive with praise about his journey. Thank you so very much for ensuring that his holiday in South Africa was absolutely superb !!! Kudos to you and your staff for a job extremely well done. In fact, Mr. Williams and Ms. Heard are very excited about the prospect of making a return visit to South Africa next year to do a safari, Vic Falls and a short trip on either Rovos Rail or the Blue Train. Again, I thank for your patience, professionalism and for delivering an extraordinary vacation experience to my clients.

We had an amazing trip and overall A+ experience. I thought I would critique a few of our experiences (not as a complaint, but just feedback for you).
VIP service was excellent and welcomed after a long journey.
Michelangelo Hotel, beautiful and excellent service. One of the best breakfasts we’ve ever experienced. Would feel confident recommending it to friends. Could easily spend more time there.
Dinner was very good with excellent service.
If we ever come again, we would probably stay the right at the airport (I noticed an Intercontinental right there). This would save two 30 minute transfers to and from the city, which given our late arrival, we really didn’t see. We just ate dinner and went to bed, and although we truly enjoyed the hotel, it probably would have saved us some time and money by staying at the airport that first night.
So that is our journey. We thank you for all your hard work and assistance in helping me to check off a major item on my bucket list! Maybe one day I will get back to your beautiful country. The people there are so nice and friendly, always smiling, even though I know they don’t always have it easy. I learned a lot about the culture and politics of your country as well as experiencing the beautiful wildlife your country has at its disposal. To me, safariing is the bomb! I could not get enough of it. I hope I get back there one day.
With warmest regards,
