Far & Wild Travel Customer Reviews

The speed at which you tailored the itinerary to suit our budget and time was outstanding

Philip & Elizabeth travelled to Namibia, Sossusvlei and Etosha in June 2019 on a trip organised by Peter.

For Philip his favourite part of the holiday was wandering the sand dunes at Sossusvlei and for us both the wealth of wildlife we were fortunate enough to see in Etosha National Park was amazing. Our trip was truly fabulous and we can't thank Far and Wild enough - despite travel niggles we would recommend this company to anyone.

Brilliant Safari Planners

Philip travelled to Botswana, Zimbabwe and Zambia in June 2019 on a trip organised by Rebecca.

I used Far & Wild Travel to plan a 50th Birthday present for my wife. Working with their African specialists, together we planned an amazing safari encompassing Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana (Chobe National Park, the Okavango Delta and the Kalahari). The trip took in a helicopter over Victoria Falls, a balloon ride over the Okavango and four amazing Safari camps. Far & Wild’s patience and attention to detail was excellent and their insightful advice (based on practical experience) was really helpful. The holiday was breathtaking and all that we could have hoped for - and would not have happened without Far & Wild Travel.

You made us love Africa

Luca & Maddalena travelled to Tanzania and Zanzibar in June 2019 on a trip organised by Alistair.

We want to thank you for the amazing trip we have had in Tanzania and Zanzibar. Was the first time for us with a travel company, I have to say that everything was perfect and above expectations. Selous Kulinda Camp has been amazing, the location is pure wildness, the food really high level, all the guys from the crew were professional. Zanzibar Queen gave to us everything we wanted in terms of atmosphere, we really felt the African spirit! All the connections were on time, clear and even cool like the small plane that landed practically in the middle of the jungle, with giraffes crossing the landing strip! Amazing experience. You made us love Africa.

Our holiday was beyond expectations

Lynn & Robin travelled to South Africa in May 2019 on a trip organised by Peter.

An exceptional Garden Route tour - the holiday was beyond our expectations. All the accommodations recommended by Far & Wild were amazing. The travel pack sent to us prior to departure contained very useful information including driving directions between our accommodations which were accurate and extremely helpful. Would not hesitate in recommending Far & Wild to others.

We didn't consider any other travel agencies, Far & Wild was the only one we came across that truly resonated with us.

Saskia & Per travelled to South Africa and Mozambique in April 2019 on a trip organised by Peter.

The proposal itinerary booklet and welcome pack were so beautifully presented and made us feel so well taken care of. Camping in the wilderness and meeting such extraordinary animals up close was the most incredible experience. The people at Honeydew Mantobeni Camp were so welcoming and made our stay perfect, and I was so touched by how thoughtful the staff at Rissington Inn were, welcoming us with local sherry and flowers in our room. Azura Benguerra was the perfect way to end such a magical honeymoon, and our host Carlos was particularly wonderful. It was a magical experience, one we will treasure forever.

I felt that we were in safe hands all the way

Kate travelled to Botswana and Zambia in April 2019 on a trip organised by Rebecca.

Even though we were only going on a 3 day safari, everyone at Far and Wild was so unbelievably helpful in choosing where to stay, which can be daunting given the massive choice on offer. Once we had decided where to go the organisation of the trip was perfect and I felt that we were in safe hands all the way. The transfers and travel required to get us from Zambia to Botswana all went without a hitch and is definitely not something we could have done alone. All round a brilliant experience and I would thoroughly recommend Far & Wild to anyone.

Another brilliant F&W trip

Jill travelled to Mauritius in April 2019 on a trip organised by Alistair.

The team delivered another brilliant trip (we previously went to Mauritius with them). I asked for a holiday in a region they don’t usually specialise in (Italy!) and they sorted it out really quickly. Travelling with two tiny little ones means we can’t be as ‘pick up and go’ in our travels as we used to be but they made sure all of the things we needed (car seats, bed bumpers, etc) were sorted out that the logistics generally was stress-free. The best bit though is the suggestions for places to go and super personable service. Just lovely people to deal with.

It was the best ever experience, magical, awesome and more!

Francesca & Jeremy travelled to Botswana and Victoria Falls in April 2019 on a trip organised by Rebecca.

We've been trying to come up with one word to sum up our trip, but it's impossible. It was the best ever experience, magical, awesome, and more! Everything exceeded our expectations.

An amazing experience staying in wonderful hotels.

Lynn & Robin travelled to South Africa in April 2019 on a trip organised by Peter.

There was no favourite part of our holiday, it was all excellent, and an amazing experience staying in wonderful hotels. Staff at Abbey Manor Guesthouse in particular were very helpful and recommended a great restaurant for dinner.

Even more than we could have wished for.

Michele travelled to South Africa in March 2019 on a trip organised by Peter.

Far and Wild travel organised our wedding (legal ceremony) and honeymoon in South Africa at Garonga Safari Camp, with the honeymoon in Cape Town and then along the Garden Route. It was more than we could have wished for. Ben and the team at Far and Wild travel help to make organising such a trip feel easy and their knowledge is excellent. They also answered any queries we had along the way in a timely and helpful manner. The service from Far and Wild as well as the accommodation we stayed in was 5 star and the price was also very reasonable. Little touches such as the pack that arrives before your travels with all contact details, routes for travelling by car from one location to the next were excellent and very helpful. We will certainly be looking to book through far and wild travel again in the future.
