Don’t just take our word for it

Thank you so much for all your help and hard work with our honeymoon, we had the most amazing time, everything was just perfect!
South Africa: Mseni Lodge was wonderful! We were really made to feel special.
Botswana: Big Five Chobe Lodge was a fantastic setting.
Chobe Bush Lodge was a stunning hotel, and the room we were in was perfect for a honeymoon couple.
Thank you for all your help and organising, we could never have done such an amazing job!

Hi Stan and Anne
Julie and I would like to thank you two for the wonderful tour package you put together for us. It was a truly amazing experience that gave us a taste of what a beautiful continent Southern Africa is. We loved our camping adventures and safaris, and had a lovely time in the resort accommodation as well. Namibia scenery touring was also a highlight. Cape Town was a terrific city to visit.
All in all, we had a great 4 weeks’ vacation and can’t wait to visit again.

We had such a wonderful holiday, full of very different things, and are agreed that our bush experience with Red Earth gave us the stand-out memories.

We were not ready to come home. This sums up everyone’s feelings. The quality of all the accommodation and catering was outstanding – a reflection of your experience and knowledge of South Africa.

We have used Red Earth travel for 3 trips to South Africa and beyond over the last 8 years, and every single trip has been completely bespoke. Anne and Stan catered to our every need. Nothing was too much to ask of them. Couldn’t ask for more accommodating hosts.
For our last trip we had the pleasure of Anne and Stan being our tour guides for a trip from Durban into Mozambique. Their knowledge on the local area, bush wildlife and S.A. history made for a wonderful holiday experience. Cannot recommend them enough. I am already looking to booking my next holiday with them. 5 out of 5 for holiday experience.

A note to thank you for setting up our Garden Route trip for us and all your advice along the way. We have had a really enjoyable and memorable trip.

The itinerary you set out for us was excellent and all the accommodation was top notch. We loved the scenery and wildlife – and particularly liked Cape Town.
