Testimonial by Shamima & Jateen Vawda from South Africa

Hello Desire,

Again, many, many thanks for planning our 2016 holiday in Kenya. Your arrangements were perfect!!!

Maurice and McKenzie were the highlight of our holiday. They took extra care of us and made us feel at home.

Your itinerary allowed us to revel in Kenya’s beauty and appreciate the huge development challenges facing our continent. Most importantly that we are slowing moving towards a better place.

Again, Baie Baie Dankie!


Testimonial by Jenni & Adriaan Beukes from Namibia

Thanks so much for everything Des you personally did a superb job of planning, re-organising the flights, matching the accommodation and all the transfers to meet our timeline until everything was perfect.

Just saying.....
We had the best vacation ever in Thailand. We believe this was due to the excellent planning and arrangements made by Desire Africa Travel.

The accommodation they selected was spectacular and the flights were synchronized well to make our journey as smooth and comfortable as possible. We didn't even feel the distance.

The Thai people were the most welcoming and accommodating and we felt
extremely safe. In Phi Phi we could unwind properly and genuinely relax. What made it more pleasurable is that there is quite a variety of dining places with a wide variety of price ranges. For the first time we rented a canoe for a day and paddled safely along the calm aqua blue waters
along the coast line of the island. We also enjoyed authentic Thai massages. On a particular night , we were entertained by a live
professional fire dancers. Moreover, we enjoyed drinking out of real coconuts on an island.

As Krabi was just a ferry ride away , we went there for a day to enjoy the local markets. To our surprise , we had fish foot massages , pizza on the go and I purchased pure pearl jewels.

Subsequently, we felt so sad to leave Phi Phi with the ferry to Phuket. However , once we arrived there the transfer was waiting for us promptly and drove us to Patong.

There we were welcomed to another awesome location and felt relaxed and well rested to enjoy everything Phuket had to offer.

So, there was hotel transfers to Phuket beach every hour to and fro.
Hence, it wasn't necessary to even rent a car. At Phuket we discovered
a shopping mecca ... >> Read More

Dear Desire

Feedback on our holiday throughout Tanzania & Zanzibar...

Firstly regarding your service and the organization....well, everything was perfectly organized! We also really appreciated your reactivity before and during the trip.

Regarding the lodges during the safari, they were very well located and we had a beautiful view from each of them. The rooms were spacious and nice and the staff members were so gentle.

Our driver/guide was also really nice.

In Zanzibar the property, Ras Nungwi Beach Hotel was really nice and we appreciated the privacy we had on the beach. The Size of the hotel was exactly what we were looking for. The food was really great and the staff members very friendly.

Finally we really had a great time during our safari and Zanzibar - it was just perfect!

Thank you for your service!!

Hi Desire,

The little hiccup we had with the car rental prior to viewing the beautiful Namibia it was all worth it.

Sam’s Giardino – where do I begin? What a stunning place!!

We have made unforgettable memories and we have seen places that words battle to describe.

Thank you for you kind assistance! We have had the time of our lives. We will definitely be dealing with you in the coming year maybe to see some of Cape Town!

Kindest Regards.

Dear Desire

Our time in Zanzibar was fabulous, a time to remember forever.

I also want to thank you for the arrangements with this tour. Your service was excellent, excellent.

From day one with our flights the drivers that pick us up at the airport and took us to Tembo hotel and thereafter to Gold and back to Zanzibar airport it was so well arranged.

Your choice of hotels you recommended were once again excellent. You definitely know your story. It was if you know exactly what we wanted.
• Tembo House Hotel with his fabulous swimming pool and tables and chairs that is on the side walk under the trees and the view of the sea with all the boats and children playing in the sea…I will never forget that vibe it was such an experienced.
• Gold Zanzibar beach house is absolutely Wahoo in my wildest dreams I did not expect that. All I can say is I want to go back.

We enjoyed the narrow streets of Zanzibar’s stone town. We visit Freddy Mercury house and the shopping area of the town with all the wires that is hanging from the one shop to the others you cannot explain it to somebody, you have to experience it for yourself.

My grandchild was snorkeling in the crystal clear water the day when we went to Prison Island. Must say the Prison island is a must with the giant tortoises the scenery is breath taking. We also did the spice plantation tour with all wide variety of spices and fruits.

When we went to Gold we did the sun cruise and just have a great time and enjoy the idyllic beach and shimmer of the sun. Gold is breath taking the facilities is amazing and with all the friendly staff members who spoiled you, you ... >> Read More

Testimonial by Lorraine Caetano from South Africa

Hi Desire

Thank you so much for this welcoming e-mail. It is wonderful to have experienced such excellent service.

I had the most wonderful trip. Erindi was absolutely wonderful, I really enjoyed my stay there. The accommodation is excellent, the Game Drives are out of this world and the food, fattening.

Elegant Farmstead was extremely relaxing. It has this farm environment and was most relaxing. Small gestures by the staff made it an amazing experience, bed turned down at night, sweet thing on your pillow, a cold damp facecloth on your return from an outing. I also went on the Cheetah walk, what an experience.

Thank You for making my trip to Namibia such an amazing and relaxing experience.

Kind Regards


Testimonial by Alfred & Sara from South Africa

The holiday in Mozambique at Azura Quilalea was AMAZING as always, and your service was impeccable!

Thank you so much for the surprise turtle beach picnic. The new owners redid the whole "turtle beach picnic" layout and it was fantastic! Alfred actually proposed as well so I couldn't have asked for more... you surprised me then so did he!!

We will definitely use DesireAfrica Travel again, I haven't used anyone else (or even thought of it) since I met you...

A side note, the new managers at Azura Quilalea have improved the food as well, which I didn't think was possible!!

With regards to feedback ...
Your service is always top notch!! Quick, highly efficient and very well priced. And you are SOOO friendly it feels like I've known you for years, it makes working with you an absolute dream!

I have given my friends your details as well as strangers that I meet sitting in airports etc.

Our life is so hectic that you make going on holiday such a pleasure as I know for sure that I don't need to worry about a thing!!

Thank you so much for that. And on top of everything you are crazy enough to put your clients first when you are on holiday yourself - you are definitely a keeper >> Read More

Testimonial by Pieter & Robyn De Vries from Saudi Arabia

Our Second trip with Desire Arica, has been a unforgettable experience once again. Who would have known that Africa (this time Zimbabwe) could be so trouble free and well organized.

Desire has the ability to make one feel at ease and well looked after with her attention to detail and personal touches every step of the way.

She also has the uncanny ability to choose the best ground handlers and recommend the best lodging and adventures for our personal needs ever single time. “I don’t know how you do it”!!

The Victory Falls combined Cariba houseboat adventure was a “Bucket list” trip for the whole family, and thanks to Desire and her World class arrangement and service, met every expectation and dream imaginable.

We will absolutely stay loyal to Desire Africa and the whole de Vries Family give thanks to Desire specifically, as this relationship and friendship has grown stronger with every piece of love and detail she has put into our trips.

We are so looking forward to the day “Desire Africa” becomes “Desire World Adventures” so we can use you for all our trips...:-)

Thank you!

Testimonial by Cathy Chin from Korea

Incredible safari experience at Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge in the Sabi Sabi Game Reserve in South Africa.

I was privileged to see the Big Five multiple times including close encounters with elephants, lions on a buffalo kill, 3 stunning leopard sightings , rhinos, and in a role reversal buffalos chasing off a pair of lions in defense of their herd.

I love going on safari because every game drive is a unique adventure—you never know what amazing discovery you will find around the next corner or how everything can change in an instant...

Thanks to my good friend Desire Avis owner of DesireAfrica Travel for planning a perfect trip and Tayla Jane McCurdy, my expert safari guide!

Thank you!!!
