If hiking to see the gorilla in their natural habitat is on your bucket list, by all means, stay at Singita Kwitonda, a brand new camp at the base of the dormant volcanic mountains in Rwanda. First class luxurious cabins, with magnificent views, and all the extras synonymous with a Singita property. The staff are incredible and the food and wine top of the line! On top of all that, the drive to the gorilla welcome center is just minutes away! Truly a memorable experience not to be missed!

On our recent trip to South Africa and Kenya Iconic Africa did a phenomenal job. It was everything we hoped for and more. Every place we went we were met at the airport and taken to our next destination without any wait time. Someone was always there to meet us. Both Londolozi and the Angama Mari locations we stayed at had exceptional service and went above and beyond our expectations. I can't thank you enough for the wonderful job Iconic Africa did planning all our travels and stays. Thank you Mary Goodreau and Claire Dembek.

Iconic Africa is a top notch organization and extremely knowledgeable about traveling in southern Africa, especially as it has to do with safaris. They handled everything from start to finish (in Africa - we were responsible for arranging our flights to Johannesburg and back), including all transfers and flights within Africa, practically without a hitch (nobody's perfect). Accommodations were mostly top of the line, and we had an excellent all around experience.

Iconic Africa was top notch from the first contact. Julia and Lauren Fryer provided great service. Though there is a significant time difference between the States and Africa, email responses were timely. My questions were always answered and my list of "wants" met without any hesitation. My trip: Transfers were seamless. Accommodations were absolutely amazing. I definitely recommend the Safari Collection. Wildlife viewing was stellar. Staff at all of the lodges were true professionals and committed to seeing that every guest had a great experience. If I come back to Africa, Iconic Africa will make my travel arrangements again.

Iconic Africa treats you as if one of their own. Rather than sell tours or experiences, they read who you are, care about that mix, understand your reasons for travel and then give you a lifetime of indelible memories
Review by Dorrit5 months ago
Our trip to Africa was outstanding! A highlight of the trip was how informative and knowledgeable the guides were, they made our trip so much more than we had hoped for. Every andbeyond place we stayed made us feel welcomed and cared for, we couldn't have asked for anything more. Every detail was taken care of by Iconic Africa, they made our vacation one we will never forget. Thank you for everything!
Bev van Schoor was so helpful when we had questions and she listened to what we wanted and gave us so much more! I highly recommend her and Iconic Africa!

Iconic Africa provided a truly unique travel experience and I would highly recommend their services to anyone traveling in and around South Africa. All of the lodging accommodations were first rate in terms of service, food and location (urban and on safari). The guided tour recommendations were also well organized and easy to choose, and there was no pressure to choose a high priced option over the more economical options. The tour companies are all well run and every driver was on time and well trained about the tourist sites. Every step of the way, Iconic Africa was only a phone call or a WhatsApp message away for answering questions.

John and his team were incredibly efficient and friendly from our very first inquiry. The personalized and detailed service contributed to a trip that we will never ever forget! The safari they recommended was everything they promised and more! Londolozi Private Game Reserve in the Sabi Sands exceeded our expectations from every single aspect...World class service, delicious food, the best game viewing we have ever experienced, luxurious rooms, photography advice, gym and the list goes on! We cannot wait to book our next African vacation through Iconic Africa to ensure we are guaranteed the smooth, organized and amazing service once again. Thank you Iconic Africa

Iconic was absolutely fantastic and exceeded our expectations with everything we did. All the drivers and guides were always helpful, kind, knowledgeable and always on time. There were no issues with any of the accommodation reservations, plane tickets or transfers. The itinerary was phenomenal and we would not change a thing. We will absolutely use Iconic the next time we venture to Africa (which will all are hoping will be sooner than later!).

Our trip went smooth without a glitch from the beginning. Bev and Terri were wonderful in planning our trip to South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe.
People at airport meet and greet, transportation to and from the airport were very polite and prompt. Bev made sure that our boarding passes for the flights were delivered to our rooms in time.
All the safari lodges were top rated. Game rides were excellent. People and the services at the lodges were wonderful and personal. I should say the food was average in taste but fresh, well prepared and served.
Overall the experience with Iconic Africa was excellent. I have no hesitation in using again and recommending Iconic Africa.
Thanks Bev and Terri for making our experience a memorable one.

My husband and I planned a honeymoon trip to Kenya with Iconic Africa. Wow. Did they kill it or what? We spent 2 nights in Nairobi, 5 nights in the Masai Mara, 3 nights in Lamu, and 3 nights in Watamu. From the moment we got off the plane to the time we said "see you later" and got back to the airport, everything was seamless. The transportation was awesome. We were never standing there wondering where we were supposed to be or go. Our drivers came right up to us and knew our names. Before the trip, they were so communicative and answered every question I had. The places they had us stay at in Kenya were absolutely fantastic. We seriously had the most perfect trip we could have imagined. I highly highly highly recommend using Iconic Africa to plan your African vacation. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Lauren and Julia Fryer for making our honeymoon an absolute dream!

5 star service by Iconic Africa who organized our trip to the 5 star Oyster Box Hotel! We had an amazing weekend in this beautiful hotel on the beach - true luxury with a fantastic spa and a delicious high tea. We will definitely be back!
Review by Nora Galvan11 months ago
Our trip with Iconic Africa was a truly 5 star experience. Our stay at The Oyster Box was everything we could have hoped for and more. Complete and utter luxury with every detail thought through meticulously - from the incredible hotel and spa experience to fun adventures booked close by. We could not have asked for a better experience and will definitely use Iconic to help us plan our next African adventure.

Iconic Africa is an exceptional travel service .. they are personal and professional at all times . They organised me within an inch of my life and travelling on my own this was an extremely necessary factor . They spent the time to get to know me then tailored an experience that was spot on .
I will definitely use them again and are recommending them to all my friends .
Review by Orialys Farl1 year ago
Iconic Africa was fantastic planning our trip to CapeTown, Londolozi in Sabi Sands, Victoria Falls and Jao Camp in Botswana. The experience was magical on so many fronts. Everything from flights to accommodations were excellent and exceeded our expectations. They planned everything and the communications were through and detailed, leaving nothing to chance. I highly recommend Iconic Africa. Lauren Fryer and Jules Fryer were terrific.
Review by BRolivier1 year ago
Iconic Africa produced and delivered the ultimate Africa experience. Nobody knows Africa better and can genuinely offer expert comments from their own experiences with accommodation and transport. Our travel consultant Bev was truly exceptional. She leaves nothing to chance and I am so lucky to have had her organise my trip last year and again this year. I would highly recommend Iconic Africa to all who consider a trip to Africa.

Review by Crisostomo Adtio1 year ago
From the second Iconic Africa (Julia & Lauren Fryer) contacted us and helped us put this trip together it has been seamless, easy, uncomplicated and beyond our expectations of what to expect from our first trip to Africa. The people who met us, cared for us and guided us were the most courteous, hospitable and professional people I have ever met. That includes every person that touched us at Iconic Africa. They responded to every query, email and phone call promptly and with the information and help we needed. The pace of our trip was well thought out and helped us see everything and do everything we wanted to do.
It couldn't have been a more perfect trip. I can't thank Iconic Africa, Julia and Lauren Fryer for making it happen! I will shout from the rooftops their praises and will definitely call them for our next trip back to Africa...because that is going to happen!
