After 11 years we returned to south africa for a 2nd holiday. We were happy to see Southern Circle was still around. Booked and paid with them via the internet. All our desires very full accommodated in a customised travel scheme. All hotels very excellent picks. Our combination of guided tours in/around Cape Town followed by drive yourself with pre-booked hotels along the Garden Route and Addo was very well organised. Very kind and knowledgable guide. Great tips on things to do and where to eat. At any moment in time either in presence or via mail or phone great service was provided.
Dear Beate and Nick
Thank you SO much for all the support during the COP 17 Conference.
As you will have seen in the news, the results were disappointing in that the big green house gas emitters managed to put off reducing their emissions until about 2020, bad news for all of us. We will be negotiating over the next years and hopefully people will wake up more to the threats to all of us. But all your support really made a difference to our work, so we are really really appreciative. Congratulations for such a great service!!! I hope to be back but for fun and a safari.
On behalf of all my friends, part of the El Salvador's delegation to climate change negotiations that took place in Durban, we wanted to thank you for all the effective, kind and unconditional support that you provided each one of us while fulfilling our task. Your excellent service was really critical to the success of our mission in Durban.
Let us thank you for this once more while wishing you and your families all the best of health and prosperity for the New Year with all best wishes,
The tours you booked for us were excellent. Excellent guides, who certainly 'knew their stuff'. Did you realize that the tours were personal tours, in that we traveled in a car with a driver-guide, and not in a coach with other folk? The guide would stop whenever we asked. We had to buy our own lunch, but each time were taken to somewhere were we had a good choice. We thought they were excellent value for money. If you should book these tours for anyone else, we can recommend Malcolm Lee as a driver/guide and a young man by the name of Jack.
This tour was a joy from the moment we boarded the bus till our guide David, who had become a family friend by this time, dropped us off. It was not of course possible to see everything within the two days and David tailored our visits to places and a pace that suited us. His knowledge of and pride in his homeland came through strongly and we were unable to ask any questions that he didn't know the answer to. From flora and fauna for my wife to the battles of long ago for an old soldier. The vehicle was first class and the driving very safe.
Hi Nic and Beate,
We finished our 4 day trip yesterday and are happy to declare that it was one of the very best times we have ever had. A big "Thank you" for your team at Southern Circle and particularly to our new friend Jac Du Toit. His knowledge about South Africa flora, fauna, culture and history is thorough and we learnt a lot from him. Above all his straightforwardness and unique sense of humor helps.
We will have no hesitation in recommending Southern Circle Tours and Safaris and Jac to all our friends.
Thanking you once again and with Best regards.
Good evening Nic,
I just wanted to give you some feedback on our recent tour with Southern Circle Tours and Safaris.
Our 6 day wildlife expedition was one of the best tours I have been on – and I have been on many tours in many different countries.
A very BIG thank you for a wonderful trip in your country. It was "magic" and I enjoyed it so very much.
Everything happened except being able to see the view from Table Mtn - a very small sacrifice!! I did at least have the cable car ride.
I was very sorry for you that not more people took up the trip - they don't know what they are missing.
We got back home on Friday from Murchison Falls in Uganda. It was a long trip.
Thank you very much for organizing this once-in-a-lifetime trip for us. We enjoyed it all thoroughly. You have a beautiful country; the people are friendly; the food is fresh and delicious and the infrastructure works well. Uganda of course, is more raw.
We were remiss in not filling out the questionnaire and mailing it to you form Joburg. My apologies. I have attached the completed form in PDF.
