Everything was taken care of perfectly

Better Places has put together a great individual tour in South Africa for my husband and I. We drove around in a rental car for three and a half weeks; Johannesburg – Kruger National Park – Swaziland and flights between Cape Town – Hermanus – Swellendam. We had great & unique small-scale accommodations. Everything was taken care of perfectly. Zsa-Zsa thank you very much for this unforgettable journey.

The trip was a wonderful and unforgettable experience for us but also for our six year old son

We are very pleased with the beautiful trip we made to South Africa. Thanks to the direct contact we had with the local travel expert, we could put together a trip that was perfect for us. The travel expert always responded very quickly to emails, thought along with us and came up with good proposals based on our needs. Really great! The trip was a wonderful and unforgettable experience for us but also for our six year old son.

We saw a lot and are left with beautiful pictures and memories to last a lifetime

A dream came true, a trip to South Africa. Our daughter was already there and we wanted to meet her. This wouldn’t be possible with organized group travel, so we decided to organize the trip ourselves – with a lot of help from our local travel expert. We told her what we would like and she arranged the accommodations, game drives and rental cars. We were always able to ask questions by email. At Cape Town airport we got our travel itinerary, vouchers etc. This was all perfectly arranged. We actually found 23 days in South Africa not to be enough. It was our choise, but we missed out on some locations. I’d suggest to focus on one part of South Africa only, or to go at least for a month. We started in Cape Town and with a connecting flight from Port Elizabeth to Durban, we ended up in Johannesburg. We have seen a lot and are left with beautiful pictures and memories to last a lifetime.
