Western Cape Tour: Jonathan Koenig

The trip that Umfulana organized (my third) was perfect. I wouldn't change a thing about the itinerary. The accommodations were first-rate (perhaps the #1 reason for organizing a trip through Umfulana). The South African landscape is stunningly beautiful and the people and their history are fascinating. Even the food was great (especially the oysters in Knysna!). Addo was a highlight of the trip – be sure to book a full-day tour of the park where you go with a private or semi-private guide. Bravo!

Western Cape Tour: Michele Hartgrove

A truly magical adventure thanks to Umfulana! The tour was planned according to our wishes, completely customised and each place we stayed in was better than the last, which was very impressive as we thought it could not get any better! I've never used a travel agent before however Umfulana came highly recommended and they delivered on every count. Thanks so much for the unforgettable experience! Michele and Michael

Namibia Tour: Ian Adams

Thank you and your staff for once again setting up our tour of Namibia & Botswana we had our best tour so far to these destinations. From the villa at Okonjima (we were upgraded again) to our stays at Okavango delta and Maun prior to going home the all the transfers, the camps/lodges were perfect.
Special mention must be made about Okonjima and the Africat foundation for our stay there once again also Chobe Game lodge and the two camps in the Okavango delta, camp Okuti, Shinde camp. These places just make you so welcome and at home there.
Just one thing on reflection we could have dropped the car of at Kasane before going to Chobe Game lodge. At the lodge there is enough to do so that you do not need any transport.
Maybe we were lucky but the animals were fantastic everywhere we went.

Thank you again for your assistance

Namibia Tour: L. R.

We had a fantastic time in Namibia and Cape Town, and we decided to come back again. Umfulana did a great job, and we will recommend your company for future reference.

Pros:
Lodges and Chalets: Absolutely great, and in general no complaints at all. The most scenic lodges were Dolomite and Waterberg, the most luxurious one with the best food and wine was Mushara. However, no complaints about any of the lodges or resorts. We would go back to any one immediately.

Food and Wine: Excellent. Even the so-called house wines were of extraordinary quality and taste. It is meat country, but vegetarians will have no problems if the lodges will be informed ahead of time.

Safety: No issues at all, if one adheres to the rules and recommendations (no stuff should be left in the car). We did not need safes, even though they were available without exception.

B&Bs (Cape Town and Stellenbosch)
Just excellent! We will recommend both on trip advisor.


Cons:
No real complaints, but the food at the Waterberg Lodge was, compared to the previous lodges, rather scarce and lacked variations – also by considering what the lodge charges per night.

Rental cars:
A Toyota Hillux with four adults is rather small, by considering the length of time passengers spend in the car and on the road. The car in Cape Town, a Toyota Avanza, was the worst car I have driven in my life – and I used to have a few crappy ones. Not recommendable, I will never ever rent such a car again.

One comment regarding the attached photos: Please feel free to use them on your website, if you want and consider them (or some of them) worthy. But please do me a favor and notify me, if you intend to do so. I have contracts with two photo agencies, and I have to tell them when photos are used elsewhere. I hope for your understanding.

Thank you very much for your help and support. The best advertisement is word-of-mouth. We will certainly do that.

Best regards,

South Africa Tour: Felix en Marianne Bruijning

Dear Merwin,

Again we absolutely enjoyed the itinerary you booked for us.

Woodall Country House and Addo were again fantastic.
And so were The Fernery in Tsitsikamma National Park and Moontide Guest House in Wilderness.
We also enjoyed the accommodation in Oudtshoorn, especially since the staff was very friendly and hospitable.The room was nice as well, but unfortunately there was no privacy at all on the terrace. And since we had company next door of 6 motor-bikers that was a pity.

At Grootbos Nature Reserve we were upgraded (they told us a couple of times) to the Forrest Lodge.
We were a tiny bit disappointed, since it is quite expensive (but maybe our expectations were to high). The staff was friendly but a bit aloof. The room was absolutely impressive but the only thing you could do on the sun-deck was indeed: sunbathing, since there were only two large deck-chairs and a tiny parasol. No easy chair for reading, no shadow to find at all and not covered, so when it rained we had to sit inside.

Even so we had a lovely time and we will certainly make an appeal to you again in the future.

Baaie dankie, ons het dit baaie geniet!

Best Regards,
Felix and Marianne Bruijning
