Client Reviews
  • "All in all we couldn’t recommend TrueAfrica highly enough! Thanks for arranging the trip of a lifetime and we will certainly be repeat clients!"

    Jacob & Jilly (Australia) travelled in October 2018
  • "This was our first trip to Africa and our 33rd wedding anniversary. We specifically wanted to see the Migration. We were a little nervous about being so far from home and dealing with a travel company that did not have a US office, but TrueAfrica was spectacular! An amazing trip we will always remember!"

    Barbara & John travelled in September 2015
  • "TrueAfrica are our partners for African safari trips. They always do a great job. So efficient with amazing suggestions. We booked tree times with them and we will book much more."

    Pedro & Filipia (Portugal) travelled in November 2018
  • "TrueAfrica has the ability to match client to an experience or accommodation that will suite their style for a safari. Having travelled extensively in southern Africa and worked in the safari business, one is sometimes nervous of ones expectations not being met. TrueAfrica certainly did that and more."

    Charlie & his family travelled in February 2016

    Ilona & Family (China) travelled in December 2018
  • "My husband and I chose Africa for our honeymoon. Coming from Australia, we needed a travel agent that knew Africa well but also understood the kind of people we were, and what kind of a holiday we wanted. We found TrueAfrica online and from the moment we made contact with them they were fantastic! We felt like they were a bit of secret still yet to be discovered by the majority of tourists, and without TrueAfrica we would not have found them."

    Bridget & Stuart travelled in November 2012
  • “I believe that the differentiating factor that made our safari really unique is the thoughtful, detailed, customized, and lengthy planning that TrueAfrica put together based on their knowledge and experience to match our desires.“

    Alecia, Jacobus & Family (Belgium) travelled in August 2018
  • "I had gathered numerous quotes from different travel agents as well as directly from lodges/camps and done a lot of my own research on what we wanted to do and where. True Africa provided the most competitive prices but I was most impressed with the knowledge and the honest and suitable advice/recommendations provided to improve our planned itinerary."

    Hannah & Kade travelled in September 2014

    Patty, Bonnie & Virginia (USA) travelled in June 2017

    Aly & TJ travelled in August 2016
  • "TrueAfrica hand picks their camps, partners and people and it really shows. From the useful and informative emails and contact pre-trip to the warm welcomes to the reluctant farewells on the ground, I don't know what impressed me more."

    Riki & Guillermo travelled in June 2016
  • "Booking with TrueAfrica could not have been a better experience. Troy built us a custom itinerary for 2 weeks in Tanzania including everything we were interested in doing, and within our price range! This trip was truly one of the best we have taken."
