The trip they planned for us to Africa was great. Every detail and hotel was better than five star. Would do it again in a minute

We have traveled extensively and never used a travel agent until it was time to think about our Honeymoon. We were referred to Africa Endeavors by a friend and found the entire process of planning, booking, and traveling for our Honeymoon trip to South Africa and the Seychelles was a dream! Kate made everything so easy and the travel
experience was seamless. It was so wonderful to not have to think about a thing once we arrived at the airport- everything from transfers, to hotel check-in, to special activities were taken care of! We LOVED every bit of our trip and would highly recommend using Africa Endeavors to anyone looking for a fantastic travel experience. We will absolutely be using them again in the future!

Everything was great from the very beginning. We were deciding between Australia, New Zealand and Africa for our honeymoon and Laura helped us narrow down our options with sample itineraries, and she took the time to get to know us and what we were looking for. We chose Africa and had an unbelievable time. Everything was coordinated and executed perfectly and according to our preferences. We stayed at some unbelievable lodges that we would have never found on our own and fell in love with our safari experience. We were planning a wedding at the same time and we only wish our wedding planner was as responsive, organized, and flexible as Laura. We are looking forward to our next trip!

Just returned from an incredible trip to South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Vanessa at Africa Endeavours did an amazing job of organizing a truly once in a lifetime experience. All accommodations and activities were top of the line and everyone we interacted with was wonderful.
I highly recommend Africa Endeavours for any trip to Africa.

My first trip to South Africa was so incredible that I planned my second trip with Africa Endeavours. Whether we explored a city or were on safari, Corinne, Doug and their team ensured that every aspect of our trip was a delightful experience. Their attention to detail and getting to know their clients makes for lifelong memories.

Africa Endeavors planned the trip of the lifetime for me. I couldn't have imagined a more perfect way to explore South Africa. This was my second time working with Ellen and she made the experience fun, easy, and a dream come true. Even when plans changed at the last minute, Ellen worked with the team to accommodate me and take away my worries. She worked with me each and every step of the planning and made sure I knew all the details thoroughly before embarking on the trip. The hotels we stayed at were clean, safe, beautiful, and convenient. Everything we wanted to do, we got done and within our budget. It was exactly what I hoped for and more! I have the most amazing memories (and pictures) of our trip. I'm so thankful for Ellen and her team for making this experience one that I will never forget. Thank you so much!

The Africa Endeavours Team planned 2 trips for me and my family over the past year and both trips were outstanding down to the most minute detail; including a French tour guide for non-english speaking family, a surprise sommelier tour guide for my husband, and shark diving for my daughters. The accommodations and service were suburb. The game drives were beyond what I imagined, delivering on the BIG 5 and more. They take care of all the planning in advance, such as tipping, travel transfers, and making sure chefs are aware of food allergies, so all we had to do was show up and enjoy our trip. They do their homework, making sure they hit everything on your wish list, and sincerely want you to have an amazing experience. I am so impressed with their professionalism, commitment to detail, as well as high level looking and understanding of what it takes to create a travel experience of a life time, that I am using them again to plan a trip that I will offer through my business. If you want the trip of your dreams, where you can relax, and trust that all your needs will be met, then definitely work with Africa Endeavours, your future self will thank you!

Had to write a review after my experience. In short, they kept trying to arrange trips that were overpriced by thousands of dollars. I could book the same hotels on basic booking sites for way way less. They also kept suggesting extremely over-the-top hotels when I specfically said I was looking for low key, boutique-style places. I offered up specific examples and they still would say I'm better off at the most expensive places.
When I asked why their price quote was $4,000 more than if I booked it myself, they asked for a list of prices I found. I gave them the prices then they said that they can't comment because they offer package deals. I paid them $250 to book my vacation and I booked 100% of my flights, hotels, etc and didn't book a single hotel on their recommendation list. Worked with Katie, who was super nice, but you'd be better off lighting $250 on fire then going on Agoda to book hotels.

Greatest trip ever and Candice was wonderful
Review by Lmarie Brombusch1 year ago
Having "won" a week at the Zulu Nyala Game Lodge at a charity auction event, we asked Africa Endeavors (Shannon Bradley) to develop an extended vacation in Africa for us, recognizing that my wife and I are of the "older generation." Shannon scheduled a wonderful and very educational day tour of Soweto and the Johannesburg Apartheid Museum for our layover in that city - it was a remarkable day, with a personal driver and guide. After Zulu Nyala, we flew to Zimbabwe for a visit to Victoria Falls - beautiful hotel (Ilala Lodge), personal tour of the falls, exciting helo ride, river cruise and wonderful memories. We then flew to Nairobi and visited the incredible Giraffe Manor .... the experience of a lifetime. After the Manor, we flew (small plane) to the Maasai Mara north area and the Karen Blixen Camp. Wonderful and knowledgeable guide (Peter) took us on "safari" daily at 0630 and 1600, with a late night trip during a thunderstorm when we viewed herds of wildebeests and zebra running across the plain within 20 -30 feet of our Land Rover. Spotting the Big Five during the week was no problem ...... even for the elusive leopard. An absolutely incredible trip set up by Shannon!

Candice and her team put together the trip of a lifetime for us. She did the same when we went to Australia and New Zealand so using her again was a no brainer. A++++ experience
Review by WoWPriest Misson1 year ago
Our trip to South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana was amazing. Candice and the team at African Endeavors did a phenomenal job arranging everything form flights, transportation, accommodations - everything! Truly a turn key operation from the moment we landed until the moment we departed on our return home. We even added a full day in Dubai on the way over. We used Candice for our trip to Australia and New Zealand previously so we had all the confidence in the world that this trip would be first rate all the way! Thank you Candice for a truly bucket list experience for our family.

Review by Gunhyo1 year ago
This was the very best vacation that my wife and I have ever taken. We are in our mid 60’s and have been to many wonderful places. However, we have repeatedly discussed how this trip was the vacation of our dreams. South Africa is a fantastic place and the team at Africa Endeavors couldn’t have done a better job in planning out all of our details.

Their knowledgeable staff put together the best holiday for my family ever! I will use Africa Endeavors for all my African holidays moving forward!

South Africa & Mozambique Honeymoon
From the moment we stepped off the plane in Johannesburg until the moment we were dropped off at the Cape Town airport, Laura Tober made sure that my new wife and I had the absolute honeymoon of a lifetime. Laura made sure that every detail was cared for the entire trip and made for a much more enjoyable and relaxing time. Her recommendations for every aspect of the trip were spot on and fit exactly what we were looking for. Thank you Laura and everyone else at Africa Endeavours for a wonderful honeymoon!

Everything was top notch, Accommodations were perfect! Transportation and guides excellent and food superb. One of my favorite trips of all time. Well planned by Ellen and Vanessa!
Review by Sumaia1 year ago
I typically do not use any assistance for planning trips, but going on Safari is a different level of travel - I didn't want to mess this up. I found AE at the Travel show in Feb '17, talked with my rep Ellen throughout March & April, and by May was all set for my trip which was a full year out. Ellen was a pleasure to work with, handling all my questions and needs at every turn of the process. Their team is awesome as I went to the office one afternoon and everyone wanted to share experiences so they could best tailor my trip to my desires. I cannot wait for my trip later this Spring!!

It was the best trip ever!! all the places they put us, was fantastic. We LOVED all of it...great experience and Africa Endeavours set the whole thing up. We didn't worry for anything...food, pick ups, airports, etc was perfect..
Review by Darolyn Babero2 years ago
My husband and I used Africa Endeavours to plan our honeymoon based on a recommendation from a friend. We are so happy we did- Ellen was incredible. She took our trip outline and filled in the blanks based on our interests and created the perfect balance for both of us (he likes adventure, I prefer relaxation). Ellen was super great fielding my thousands of questions and made us feel very prepared for our trip. Our trip was 2 months long so we wanted to make sure we had everything we could possibly need or need to know while we were away and Ellen was even able to preempt some of my questions and asks.
Amazing experience and we will absolutely be working with Ellen to plan all future trips.
