I was visiting South Africa for work and had a very limited schedule for site seeing. The Go Safari were a pleasure to deal with and extremely accommodating when I had to change the time of my tour.

Everything was well organized, from the pick up in the hotel, to stops alongise the way, and all the way to the visit of the Park and the ride back home. The guide was great, accomodating our needs, very friendly and knowledgable about many things related to South Africa and its history.

Go Safari was a great experience from booking and their advice on what to do, to the experience itself. We booked last minute and Susan was on top of everything - would highly recommend booking with them.

Susan managed to squeeze me onto a tour very last minute, she was super accommodating and very fast to respond. The entire trip was an absolute delight and couldn't have been executed any better. Our driver Wiggie was super and the safari tour was an amazing experience. I'd highly recommend booking with this lovely family run tour company.
