We had a wonderful time touring South Africa. All of our expectations have been met. The tours in Cape Town, the domestic flights in South Africa, the safari experiences in Tswalu and Londolozi, the accommodations, the restaurants, the wine..., everything was perfect. We received all the support we needed before and during our trip. Our guide was very knowledgeable and took very good care of us. Five stars to Bellingham Safaris!

Myself, my wife and eldest daughter have just returned from an scheduled expedition to Uganda with Bellingham Safaris, to see both chimpanzees and mountain gorillas in the wild. We also had game drives both on land and water seeing an abundance of other wildlife including many birds and the famous tree climbing lions of Uganda. There were a total of 5 guests on the trip plus Greg, our wonderful South African guide and also a local guide from Uganda. The whole trip went like clockwork from start to finish. All we had to organise were our international flights, everything else was taken care of, right down to the small things such as making sure we had water with us for each part of the trip. All internal flights and all transfers taken care of, the lodges they chose were the best available at strategic locations to avoid too much travelling between sites. The Ishasha Wilderness Camp in the Queen Elizabeth Park and the Buhoma Lodge at Biwindi were very special. Nothing was too much trouble, all the lodges had been advised of dietary requirements and each one went out of their way to meet these. We have used Bellingham Safaris to organise many holidays for us before and had used their guiding experience in Cape Town itself but this trip they really put things together very well for the entire 10 days. We are currently planning our next holiday and will certainly go on another organised expedition in the future.

Another wonderful trip faultlessly organised by Bellingham Safaris. We had a week in the Masai Mara and a week at Quilalea Private Island, Mozambique.We just booked our international flights everything else was organised for us. We were met at the start and end of every flight by a great partner who guided us effortlessly in the airports. All transfers were on time and efficient. Bellingham Safaris staff are on the end of the phone at any time day or night if you need them and the responses are very swift. We had some amazing experiences to add to our bucket list, including lions in trees, thousands of wildebeest and zebra on the migration, many birds and the snorkelling in Mozambique was amazing, so many fish and turtles.We would not use anyone else for holidays with wildlife experiences and African beaches, we have booked for next year already.

Bellingham Safaris provides a mixture between the ultimate safari experience and outstanding customer service. Due to them being a highly organized company, guests can expect a phenomenal trip, no matter where they decide to go. I would recommend Bellingham Safaris for anyone looking to venture beyond their comfort zone and into the wilderness!

Wonderful trip to s pantanenal to look for jaguars in slightly tricky conditions as rains/mosquitoes had arrived earlier than expected. But we were v lucky and had a fab time. Baiazinha lodge slightly basic and needed a few improvements but think that not down to Bellingham. Safaris as used by several companies. Would happily travel with them again at right price. And staff all passionate about their job, aswell as being hugely knowledgeable

Bellingham Safaris arranged my trip to Odzala-Koukoa National Park in the Republic of the Congo. They handled all the reservations and paperwork needed to travel to this remote area. They were always helpful and attentive to my needs. My stay in Odzala well organized. We had professional guides, excellent accommodations and great food in a very remote part of Africa. The highlights of my Odzala visit were many: viewing the lowland gorillas, a motorized boat trip, viewing numerous species of plants and animals, etc. It was definitely the trip of a lifetime and I couldn't have done it without the expertise and professionalism of Bellingham Safaris.
Bellingham Safaris also provided a full-day excursion for me when I visited Cape Town. It was a well-organized trip to a San Cultural Centre and a national park near Cape Town. I was provided with a great driver and guide.
I can't recommend Bellingham Safaris highly enough. You're in great hands when you travel with Bellingham Safaris.

Review by Maggey10 months ago
Only difficulty was with regard to payments in having to convert monies into dollars from pounds sterling and if not in central London, not always easy at an out of town bank. With regard to everything else, could not fault information given and quality of staff involved in booking process and all along.

extremely personalized service by a team who is passionate about environment and the wildlife.
Review by Maghida11 months ago
A highly personalised service; relaxed, attentive to each guest's preferences but without being fussy or intrusive. The two guides - Greg and Livingstone - worked as a great team to ensure that everyone got to see and do what they wanted. They are incredibly knowledgeable about the wildlife, and friendly and humorous. We leant and laughed throughout our trip. The schedule worked very well; we felt we had enough time in each location, both to settle in and see as much as possible, but moving on meant the 10 days seemed to last longer. I couldn't recommend Bellingham Safaris more highly.

Travelling in Africa with Bellingham safaris has always been the most incredible experience, all of the lodges we have stayed in have been beautiful, the staff are very friendly and welcoming, the trackers and safari guides always attentive and very knowledgeable about the wildlife. The food is brilliant and every time we leave I look forward to returning in the future for another amazing experience.
This company truly capture what Africa is all about, with the wildlife, culture and people that make the experience so fantastic every time.

I recently had the pleasure to go on a trip to The Pantanal in Brazil with Bellingham Safaris. I am an experienced traveler and have been on numerous safaris and expeditions. Simon Bellingham's vast knowledge and entertaining way of story telling and explaining everything has made this trip one of most interesting and enjoyable ever. I would highly recommend Bellingham Safaris to any wildlife and nature lover, they run an amazing operation. I look forward to going on a other adventure with them soon. I don't want to forget to mention that Simon is an incredibly talented wildlife photographer as well.

Bellingham Safaris is fantastic.
I have done regular trips and private trips with them. They are extremely friendly, good with organisation, and excellent in the field at finding birds and animals even the rare and elusive ones.

Traveled with Bellingham Safaris in May 2018 to Borneo for an Incredible Wildlife Adventure! The engagement with Jen was smooth from the planning phase. She helped us design a customized tour to maximize our wildlife encounters, comfort and travel time. Simon helped fine tune this based on his experiences in Borneo. We were so fortunate to have Simon personally guide us on our tour! He was the best host! Simon's customer service (checking in with us often), knowledge of the wildlife, and infectious excitement about the ecology we experienced made for an awesome two weeks!! We now consider him a friend! We have already signed up for another adventure to Chile later this year. Recommend Bellingham Safaris with no reservations!
