“Truly Africa from Truly Africa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2010

In the first half of September we took a 14 day Safari guided by Linkie and Colleen from Truly Africa. We started in Windhoek and passed through the following on our way to Livingstone, Zambia: Sesriem/Sossusvlei, Walvis Bay/Swakopmund, Damaraland, Etosha, Caprivi, Kasane/Chobe and finally Victoria Falls.

We planned our safari in coordination with Gemma over the course of a year and a half. All in all it was a very positive experience. The whole team at Truly Africa is top notch and accommodated all of our requests. Gemma was informative and a breeze to work with over email and phone calls. Linkie (proprietor) and Colleen were courteous, fun and all around nearly perfect. We camped nearly the whole way except for Nakwazi in Rundu, the municipal bungalows in Swakopmund and Waterberry in Livingstone. Each night and day delicious food was prepared by Linkie and camp was set up and broken down swiftly and efficiently.

The itinerary was a good mix of plenty to do and good rest times in between. Optional activities were abundant and easy to book on the spot.

Overall, Truly Africa provided a wonderful, authentic experience and comes highly recommended from us.

“Fantastic Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2010

Not long back from a wonderful 16-day private tour of South Africa, Botswana & Zimbabwe with Truly Africa Tours.
Gemma's planning was perfect and she was very patient with all my doubts and questions prior to/after booking. We were a bit dubious about camping (necessary because of our budget), but she came up with a perfect mix of lodges, guesthouses and campsites, all of which were excellent.
The camping was actually made very enjoyable thanks to Eve, who was not only an outstanding guide but great company as well. She went out of her way to keep us happy and never tired of our 12-year old son's constant questions. Needless to say, he had a fabulous time!
Thanks again to Truly Africa (Gemma & Eve) for a fantastic trip and we hope to see you in Namibia next year.

We arrived yesterday from our amazing trip, through Namibia, Botswana and Zambia with Truly Africa Tours, and first of all we want to thank Truly Africa Tours and specially Gemma, for all the job she did, as it was everything perfect.
The accommodation, meals, excursions, 4x4, and guide (Bennie) were excellent, and for sure that we will repeat the experience with them, and will suggest them to all our friends and relatives.

“Truly Africa Tours”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2009

Thank you to the wonderful staff at Truly Africa Tours for the trip of a lifetime this past October. Gemma did an outstanding job of planning our trip down to the very last detail, accommodating our busy schedules and keeping in contact with us prior to the trip for any changes or updates. Gemma and Eve did an EXCEPTIONAL job of taking care of us throughout the trip. We opted for the 14 day private tour exploring Namibia, Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe seeing all of the highlights plus a few hidden excursion routes. The private guided tour was slightly more expensive than the group tour but WELL worth it. We were able to choose our dates and itinerary which is ideal for anyone without flexible vacation dates throughout the year. With excellent luxury lodging and our friendly, knowledgeable guides, we had an amazing vacation. It was a perfect combination of adventure and relaxation and we will recommend Truly Africa Tours to everyone we know!
