What a fabulous trip! The guides were so knowledgeable and easy to work with. All arrangements fitted well together and there were very few hiccups. All communications with the tour operators were professional and very knowledgeable. The hotels were all very good and exceeded our expectations. We have already referred several other friends to Safpol and would not hesitate to use them again. Read more

Piotr, Germany

We knew the people behind Safpol through family relations und past travels and we asked them to help us with our Honeymoon Trip to Africa. They scheduled and organized a trip for us based on our flight. We didn't have to worry about a thing. Everything was arranged and ready. Our guide during the trip was familiar with country and customs and had multiple anecdotes and facts that made everything more interesting.​ The Accommodations we had been great and the food delicious. Besides traveling through J’Burg, Pretoria, Krueger National Park and a private game resort we’ve been at a marvellous beach in Mozambique where we were snorkelling with whale sharks and dolphins. Just amazing. It was a very good Honeymoon and we are glad we did it through Safpol. Read more
