We can highly recommend Go2Africa! We have recently been to Botswana and Zimbabwe, a trip of a lifetime. The end 2 end service provided by Go2Africa (Natasha) has been exceptional. The support in finding the perfect fit for us has been outstanding. All our questions were answered with passion. Both service by e-mail and phone were polite, professional and fast. Adjustments to better suit our budget were made instantly. We always had the right amount of choices incl. the expert advise. Once the booking was done we were updated regularly about topics that should prepare us for the trip. The trip itself was incredibly smooth. All camp transfers by air and ground were on time and an experience in itself. We enjoyed all the camps we stayed in, especially Gunn's and Pom Pom in Botswana's Okavango Delta. Once again thanks to Natasha @Go2Africa for her perfect support!

This is a holiday gave me a chance to slow down, and take the time to feel part of the natural world: the sun, to notice the hook-beaked oyster catchers and families of rare seals, to enjoy the wonderful food, the sunshine, scudding clouds, waves lapping and the feeling of being held safely by the St Hilda whilst being at the mercy of winds, tides and waves. It was fun to share tasks with fellow passengers and to laugh. I haven't laughed so much for years. And I loved seeing beautiful coastal parts of Scotland for the first time from the sea, gaining the chance to wonder at the histories and cultures that have flourished, been lost and yet live on in the remote, unusual places where we moored. I discovered my sea-legs, but I found much more - the pleasure of a little bit of distance from land, the new perspectives it gives and sheer joy of experiencing the sea, and its role in revealing new dreams and uncovering old ones. All this was in the company of knowledgeable crew - sea-farers who made the whole cruise delightful from start to finish and easy-peasy for a land-lubber like myself.

It's fascinating to be on a slow journey

This holiday was like no other: it was stepping into another world where the wind, sun and sea mattered because our lives were held by the ship and these big elemental forces. It was a realm of sea faring lore, laughter and fun, where the elements - water, wind and tides - mattered and shaped and influenced our journey. It's easy to laugh on a ship because you are sharing the camaraderie of crew and ocean and somehow the sea is lighter than the land. Instead you have the myths and stories of sea and mysteries of the deep - Moby Dick, Jonah, Noah's Ark and Ring of Bright Water! It's fascinating to be on a slow journey with time to reflect and to be looking at the strange, populated and then depopulated, fought over Scottish coastal landscape from a new perspectives. It's fun to work with the charming, witty, friendly skippers and fellow crew hauling anchors and sails. But, most of all, it's a joy to be on, and in, and feeling the elemental ocean. I felt safe and found my sea-legs, but I also stumbled into a new world, one that enriches and ignites dreams.

This was a fantastic holiday - there is something magical about being in a ship, relying on wind and waves, seeing beautiful scenery, eating lovely food, helping sail the ship and enjoying the experience with a group of witty, friendly, knowledgeable people.

      About Go2Africa

      What Makes Go2Africa Stand Out?

      Destination expertise is one of the main things that makes Go2Africa stand out. There are many top global operators that run safaris - many of which are partnered with Go2Africa to provide the pinnacle in safari experiences.

      Go2Africa is not an operator, but a way to connect with the best safari and Africa tours. They will arrange flights, accommodations, and other key itinerary items for you, so all you need to do is sit back and relax while the experts take care of everything.

      Who Will Enjoy Traveling with Go2Africa?

      If you are after a safari run by experts in the field, and fully vetted by a trusted source, Go2Africa is a great choice. They are also going to appeal most to travelers who are seeking a more luxury minded safari, with top private and group tour operators.

      Part of the planning an itinerary through Go2Africa will depend on your interests, so you’ll enjoy working with them if you have strong ideas about what you want to see and do.

      While you get a great value when you go through a service like Go2Africa, you can expect to pay a premium for their expertise and individualized customer dedication. They arrange all the logistics as well, so if planning flights, transportations, and accommodation is not your cup of tea, they will be a good fit.

      Top Destinations

      Go2Africa focus primarily on safaris in East and Southern Africa. Tanzania, Kenya, Rwanda, & Uganda are top destinations in the east, while South Africa, Botswana, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, and Namibia are top areas in the South.

      Go2Africa Travel Style

      There are many styles you can choose from when you go through Go2Africa. Luxury safaris are a top offering - great for honeymoons or private family getaways. Beach getaways are also quite popular - not what you generally think of with Africa travel, but if done right you can have an incredible experience!

      Those interested in seeing the Great Migration can find safaris directly geared toward this incredible event. It is seasonal, so the travel representatives at Go2Africa will be able to tell you the best time to go. Similarly a “Big 5” safari experience is great for first time safari-goers - and Go2Africa will make sure your chances are good for seeing the top safari wildlife.

      Why Choose a Tour With Go2Africa?

      If you have a firm idea of what you are looking for out of your safari, and are seeking the help of a dedicated expert to make it happen, Go2Africa is a great choice. They are luxury minded - these are not budget safaris - but they will work with you to make sure your safari experience is everything you hope.

      About St Hilda Sea Adventures

      St. Hilda Sea Adventures provide the unique experience to see Scotland from the sea. They offer many activities and private excursions - a perfect travel experience for families, older travellers, and small multi-gen groups.

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      Taking only up to 11 guests (6 on St Hilda and 11 on Seahorse II), their tours are incredibly unique, as you cruise aboard a classic ex-tall ship (St Hilda) or a proper small ship (Seahorse II). Activities include sailing, swimming, sea kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, rock pooling, and lobster potting. Or, you can simply choose to just relax and watch the spectacular wildlife and scenery float by.

      Who Travels With Them?

      All ages and all types enjoy traveling with St. Hilda Sea Adventures. Families, couples, and solo passengers are all welcome. Passengers can choose to do as much or as little as they like. This is a great trip for young kids to enjoy as well, for the thrill of hoisting the sails like a true sailor.

      Where Do They Operate?

      The West Coast of Scotland is where they specialize, the Outer and Inner Hebrides specifically. Such a niche focus is a huge positive for those interested in getting a unique view of this part of the world.

      Why Travel With Them?

      Their Scottish cruises give you the opportunity to see extraordinary wildlife and to cruise aboard a small ship with skipper and chef and a small group of passengers. All food is included, and there are many opportunities for interesting excursions. Some excursions are included in the price however, you can also arrange excursions based on your interests. These are not included but allow for a wonderful amount of personalization to your travel experience with St. Hilda Sea Adventures.
