The guy who helped us, was amazing.
Over the years we have had excellent service from Oliver and the team at DialAFlight. Cannot recommend them highly enough.
Great service thanks. We'll be booking again
Leah and Aidan. Thank you for the amazing service and for professional touch. Much appreciated
Thank you for being brilliant
A little more help with the VeriFLY app would be great
Oli and your team, you are doing a good job. Keep it up. I have told my friends you are the best for travel
Quick action when flights were cancelled.
Everything was excellent - I will strongly recommend
DialAFlight customer service exceeded expectations. I will definitely book with you again and recommend to others
Danny was incredibly helpful. Thanks so much for the communication and rescheduling. Flights painless
Sarah is an absolute star and so proactive and helpful with all my flight plans that have been complicated over the last year. There is also always someone available to help if she is not around. Great service, thank you
Shelley and colleagues always pro-active when COVID threatened to derail holiday. Fortunately all worked out well in the end!
You played your part very, very well and will definitely recommend friends to you
Matthew and his team kept me updated throughout a particularly challenging journey. It took 8 amendments to my flight due to BA cancellations.
In times of Covid you guys have been excellent. Thank you.
I having been using DialAFlight for 18 years and have never been able to fault. Always offer above and beyond service and go out of their way. Connie was exceptional during Covid. Highly, highly recommend.
I always revert back to DialAflight because you give me a wide range of options.
Great communication and update
The team were professional and extremely helpful, especially when the airline cancelled our flights whilst we were abroad. Thanks especially to Harrison and Graham.
Guy and Ross are my gurus and are absolutely lovely. They have worked hard trying to sort out flights and travel requirements and been with me all the way.
DialAFlight brilliant as usual. Pity about shambolic BA customer services
From the moment that I phoned Callum pre covid to book flights to visit family until now the service has been simply outstanding. The disruption that we had with two trips that had to be cancelled due to restrictions Callum always kept us informed about our options and he went the extra mile to help us. Our flights got cancelled 4 days before. Callum managed to find us new flights and made our trip to visit family for first time in 6 years possible. I can’t praise and thank you enough.
Excellent customer service taking our needs into consideration and providing advice and guidance along the way including a designated contact. As always, well done and we are very happy customers who will continue using the services of DialAflight. Thank you Bradley and team.
It makes travelling so much easier booking with DialAFlight and I appreciate them keeping us up to date.
Neil was superb throughout. I’ve left positive reviews everywhere.
Many thanks to Darryl and team for getting us back as quickly as possible under the trying circumstances. The paperwork and bureaucracy that has to be followed to the letter is anything but fun. That's why I wish to thank DialAFlight for keeping in touch with me, for answering my many questions and for their willingness to solve whatever problem arose. I was very impressed and grateful for their help and support.
Impressed that handover from one person to another was very smooth
I was so impressed when I got a message advising where we had visited had been added to the red list. They were very helpful and were available 24/7. You have gained a happy customer. Your customer service is the best..
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!
