You've heard the saying "If It sounds too good to be true..." Well, let me tell you the safari that Sandy managed to get me on, for the price I paid was well and truly amazing. I couldn't believe my luck when I turned up to the amazing Honeyguide Tented Safari camp. It was everything I could have imagined and more and it was all thanks to Sandy. I got in touch with Sandy when I was travelling around SA with my boyfriend in Jan. I wanted to go on a safari in Kruger (The following week!) and was doing it on my own as my boyfriend had to fly back to the UK early. As you know looking for a safari can be mind boggling and I was getting really stressed out about finding a great place without a hefty price tag (especially given such short notice). I was also nervous about doing a safari on my own but Sandy was really understanding and helped me find the perfect safari and lodge for me all in the space of about 3 days!!!! Sandy was extremely helpful, friendly, patient and really listened to what I wanted out of a safari. She was extremely fast is replying back to emails and managed to get me an amazing price on the lodge. Sandy even checked in on me to see I'd arrived OK and then a few days later to see how I was getting on and if I was enjoying it. I can't recommend Sandy enough, he knowledge and contacts are second to none and you'd be crazy to not use her for any safari or Africa needs. I'm hoping to come back to SA next year with my boyfriend and I'll definitely be using Sandy again. Thank you for all your help. My safari was amazing.

Sandy Russell is the absolute best! We traveled to South Africa at the end of August 2016 and Sandy was our contact. She was amazing both before and during our trip. She was very easy to get in contact with and had great suggestions for us. We gave her a budget and told her what we wanted to see and she was the only one who was able to give us what we wanted within what we wanted to spend. She checked in on us when we were traveling and everything she booked for us turned out to be absolutely amazing. I would HIGHLY recommend using Sandy to plan a trip to Southern Africa. We couldn't have been happier with her services. Thank you Sandy!!

We had the good fortune of having Love Africa Travel (Sandy Russell) book our vacation of a lifetime to South Africa. August 2016

Sandy had answered some questions that I had posted on Trip Advisor and with the honest answers she gave, I decided to ask Sandy to book our trip on our behalf. Sandy was amazing. After giving her some details of the trip we were looking for, she came through with awesome suggestions. We had a complex booking which included a self-drive trip to the following: • 5 day primitive hiking trail with KZN Wildlife in Hluhluwe, Kwazulu Natal, which included at night a Mpila Camp • 2 nights at Kosi Bay Forest Lodge, Isimangaliso Wetland Park • 1 night at Mantenga Lodge in Swaziland • 4 nights at Honeyguide Tented Safaris, located in Manyeleti Game Reserve • 1 night at Byde River Canyon Wilderness lodge. Sandy organized all of the stays and made sure the bookings were secure. There were many emails back and forth designing the perfect trip and Sandy always replied promptly and was very patient with me especially when the original trip for two became a trip for four. Sandy checked in with us on route a few times to make sure all was well. There were times that we had become lost on our journey through these parts unknown and it was a relieve that Sandy was only a phone call or text away to set us back on the right track. I want to express that when we thought of South Africa, many friends had warned against me driving or even going at all. Sandy reassured us that driving was safe as long as you were vigilant (as in any country) and that South Africa was the most beautiful place to visit. She was absolutely correct. At first I had reservations about using an online based travel agent, but now that we have had such success, my fears have been eliminated. I would like to thank Sandy Russell of Love Africa Travel and would highly recommend this company for your travel needs.

When researching South Africa for a kid-friendly safari and itinerary, there are literally thousands of options so to sift through the choices, I happened upon Love Africa Travel and seriously believe our holiday was perfect mainly because of Sandy’s knowledge and input. Sandy’s patience and promptness are truly commendable and I would recommend her to anyone who wants to bounce ideas off her, or even just entrust their whole itinerary to her. Overall, we were exceptionally happy with the way things went.

Stride Review

Based in Cape Town, South Africa, and in business since 2012, Love Africa Travel is an online travel agency that aims to beat their competitors on rates, making Africa travel accessible to a broader range of travelers.

What Makes Them Stand Out?

Personalized service and, in general, low rates, at least for a generally pricey destination. They offer numerous promotions and special deals, including last-minute and off-season rates.

Who Travels With Them?

Any budget- or value-minded travelers looking for an African safari or African/Indian Ocean beach vacation, or a combination of the two.

Where Do They Operate?

Southern and East Africa as well as Africa’s outlying islands. Some specific examples: South Africa (Kruger National Park), Madagascar, Tanzania (Serengeti, Zanzibar), Kenya, (Masai Mara), Botswana, Mozambique, Maldives.

How Does It Work?

They sell both preset trips from other companies or will work with you to customize your own trip. They have relationships with a number of high quality game lodges that enable them to offer highly competitive prices.

Why Travel With Them?

Love Africa Travel seeks to live up to its name – they are based in Africa, know it well, and search for the best available deals.

From Love Africa Travel

We want to make travelling accessible to more people by providing you the best possible price. We are not in the business to ‘on sell’ you a package deal as we believe that your holiday dream destination is unique to you. We aim to provide you the best advise and service as we understand how hard you may have worked for your dream holiday. We have travelled extensively throughout Africa and her islands, which offer fabulous scenery and excellent animals sighting whether it be on land or under the water. We have always had high expectations when travelling but found keeping an open mind, relaxing and taking in the experience, you’ll be pleasantly surprised what Africa has to offer. I have found places that have exceeded my expectations and those are the experiences I would like to share with you for the best possible price. Please contact us if these any of the listed destinations interest you or if you have a dream holiday that you may need assistance with.
