Cape Classics Travel Testimonials

Ngala Tented Camp was perfect, exactly what we wanted and it didn’t feel like we were in a zoo camp but in our own private playground. We tracked animals and were on a mission every day. Such fun Our guide was great and kept it exciting. The staff, trackers and guides were 10/10, great customer service and super friendly people.

Also for a foodie obsessed person, the food was amazing! Also unexpected out there in the bush and they put great effort with my gluten free request which isn’t easy. So all in all I’d say we will be back and definitely & Beyond will stay on our radar for future trips in other destinations. They were impressive. So thanks for recommending them! So sad to have had to leave.

The 5 weeks in southern Africa went extremely fast; I don’t know what that says, but we had a fantastic time. Thank you for your planning and recommendations. They were exactly what we were after and we would highly recommend you to any other travellers looking for the same experience. We felt so privileged to have personal tours and guides. Dale has now great contacts for his plans for a southern African garden at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney.

We loved it! It was perfect, exactly what we wanted and it didn’t feel like we were in a zoo camp but in our own private playground! Which we didn’t expect. Fred and I had both been on Safari before and the experience at Ngala camp was great, we tracked animals and were on a mission every day, was fun and not your typical sit around and just stare out experience. Our guide was great and kept it exciting.

The staff, trackers and guides were 10/10, great customer service and super friendly people.

Also for a foodie obsessed person, the food was amazing! Also unexpected out there in the bush 😉 and they put great effort with my gluten free request which isn’t easy. So all in all I’d say we will be back and definitely & Beyond will stay on our radar for future trips in other destinations. They were impressive. So thanks for recommending them! So sad to have had to leave.

We are already in Singapore sitting on our desks working 🙁 guess every journey has it’s ending! Excited for the next step.

Thanks again for sorting everything out.

The pace of activities and the your utmost promptness and professionalism made our travel experiance effortless. We cannot thank you and the Cape Classics Team enough!

Hi All!
Just wanted to thank everybody for a trip of a lifetime. It was a first rate trip put on by a first rate organization.

Marc Warner – February 2016

Madagascar was great!  Nosy Be and the surrounding islands are magnificent, really rustic and unspoilt.  Great sailing, fishing and diving.  Our crew was fantastic!
Thanks for all your help

 

Bruce Henderson – December 2015

Just a note to say thanks for the recommendation of Anantara on Bazaruto Island Mozambique. The suite was amazing and the staff were fantastic.
For an Island relax, snorkelling, diving, fishing etc etc, I can highly recommend Anantara.
The food was amazing and the kids are already planning to go back there.

 

Matt Costello – January 2016

Shirley thank you for all the recommendations.  Frank was a perfect host and the trip to the wine country was spectacular!.  And everyone enjoyed the Great White Shark experiences.

 

Alan Chute – October 2015

We are now on our way back after a fantastic trip! All of us are really happy with all the arrangements you made and everything has worked really well. We loved King’s Camp, fantastic days in all ways, excellent service, lovely lodge, great safari rides with very good guides..
Coming back to Johannesburg, we realized that we had a couple of hours to spend so african rock booked a guide for us, who picked us up at the airport and gave us the “speedy version” of a Johannesburg/soweto tour, which was very interesting. Excellent dinner at the African Rock Hotel and a very nice and family friendly hotel.
Bazaruto, beautiful island, great rooms, good food, wonderful sea, also excellent service. Activities mgr Nikki very helpful, other activities such as the surfing and waterskiing were fun!
All “logistics” went well, with pickups, transfers and with Daphne’s wheelchair on flights etc etc.
Overall we are very happy with our trip and especially happy with your service, Shirley. Many thanks for all your help and support, hope to get back in touch again the next time we plan to come south!

I want to thank you again for all your help planning this trip.  We really had a wonderful time and I’m so happy with how everything turned out!
We had a lovely trip and I so appreciate all your advice.  It was so intimidating to plan a trip when I don’t personally have friends/family with suggestions. You really were able to get to know us through e-mail and plan a trip that we enjoyed!
