All great. Thanks we'll use you again.
Nicky Degun is definitely the most helpful agent that we have ever worked with. Thank you so much Nicky. We’ll definitely use your services again.
The level of customer service support was excellent and the team went above and beyond to ensure our delayed departure on the return journey didn’t turn into disaster.
The connections worked well and it was so good that if better flight options came up you booked us on to them - I’ll be in touch in April to book our next flights!
Tammy Church should be promoted.
Very much appreciated your help in confirming our flights back to the UK from Botswana as we were without internet .
Marshall is fabulous. Truly epitomises what excellent client service looks like and proactively kept me informed as well as advising on flexible options during the pandemic.
Excellent customer service, thank you.
I am so happy to be back and I appreciate all the effort by your staff, Sean in particular. I received all the information about the cancellation of flights on time and my flight back was excellent. Thank you ever so much and keep it up.
Next time, I'll try to have less time between flights. Two long waits at Frankfurt and Joburg made it a very tedious journey. In future I'll ask for alternatives.
Tony did another good job as always
Your service is swift and supportive. Great job
Keep up the good work.
DialAFlight you are stars. My sister was very happy with the 'VIP service.' Simply over the moon!
All went very well and the hotel you booked in Dubai suited us really well.
Lovely freindly and reassuring service, thank you.
Belinda Mullet was extremely helpful. Great customer service - have already recommended to others.
Josh and his team always deliver.
Excellent advance arrangements, all meetings punctual.
No fault of DialAflight but appalling service from Virgin. Return flight from Johannesburgh to Heathrow cancelled twice - 2 nights in hotel - should have landed Saturday 15th April 06.35 - finally landed Sunday 16th April 21.35!
BA flight was cancelled which is not your fault. Very happy with your service - thank you very much
Everything went like clockwork. Have used you on several occasions and will be using you again in the future
Thank you for great service at a competitive price.
Boris did a super job. Many thanks
1. Mix it up
Safaris work well with kids of all ages, but (especially without a smartphone or a tablet) they can get bored rather quickly these days. So vary up your trip with walks, kids’ activities and even horse rides in between game drives to keep each day feeling new. Poo tracking tends to be a popular choice with the little ones too.
2. Hit the beach
Mix things up even more by adding on a beach trip to your safari for the perfect accompaniment to what can be a busy schedule. Completely unwind and forget about itineraries for a few days to round off your trip somewhere kids can play and parents can relax.
3. Don’t be afraid to pay a little extra
We all like to save money where possible, but some areas of a safari experience are really worth paying that little bit more for. Your guides and vehicles for example, will make or break the highlight of your holiday and a private vehicle will ensure a more comfortable ride along the way.
4. Choose your accommodation wisely
There are many factors that come into play when choosing your camp or lodge, few more important than how suitable they are for kids. For instance, different camps offer different levels of discount for kids, making some of the seemingly more expensive camps actually cheaper for families. It’s also worth considering if you would require a larger family tent, or if you’d prefer a few separate ones.
5. There’s more to it than the Big Five
Plenty of safari-goers end up obsessing over lions and leopards, when there’s so much to enjoy and to learn too! Your guide can point out smaller creatures, plants and insects that can be just as interesting for kids and will help to stave off boredom whilst searching for more elusive animals.
6. Be prepared
There’s little worse than getting up early and setting off at the perfect time of day to be interrupted or to realise you’ve left something at the lodge. So make sure you bring your binoculars (plural – for easier sharing!) and your guide books to tick off what you’ve seen to keep everyone happy. And please make sure everyone’s been to the loo before you leave!
