This was a bucket list holiday and Jamie and Joe went above and beyond in organising it . Most importantly their communication with me for any queries was fantastic. I will be recommending them and also using them again in the future.
Isla and her team shine again
All went well. And have already recommended you to family and friends who have already booked flights with you
As always the service couldn’t be bettered nor more helpful.
Brody was very helpful and patient through a long and difficult process as our booking had to be altered and rearranged several times due to COVID. Planning our next trip now and highly recommend.
Great flight and brilliant assistance throughout by Manny.
Amazing safari to South Africa and Botswana organised by Stacey. Everything worked out perfectly, thank you.
Used you guys for years and always an excellent service. Always have and will recommend you to my contacts. Cameron did an excellent job keeping me calm and making things easy (thank you!)
Jerry is always super helpful
Very much appreciated your help in confirming our flights back to the UK from Botswana as we were without internet .
The flights went well. I've used DialAFlight for many years and it's my go to for big trips and recently smaller ones. I recommend you to everyone!
This was a holiday like the old ones before Covid allowing you to focus on the important things - like enjoying yourself. As usual, DialAFlight is to be commended on their smooth organisation. As a family, we continue to recommend them highly.
Extremely impressed that Ryan called me prior to flying out to ensure all OK - he even tried to change one flight for me
All timings worked out fine and both airlines I travelled with were efficient and pleasant
Thank you Jeff! Everything went perfectly and both you and BA provided exceptional service.
Very helpful DialAFlight App. Hotel El Fenn very good but beware 5% service charge on everything including booked accommodation via DialAFlight. Would definitely recommend day excursion to Atlas Mountains with www.kasbahdutoubkal.com
Thank you for a caring service - all the information I needed in a very understandable and user friendly format
Five service as always thanks to Stacey
From DialAFlight point of view things were fine. Kenya Airways decided to change our flights from Mombasa to Nairobi with very little time to catch the connecting flights so not too happy about that.
Thank you again Ivor
Quality service - I will definitely be using again and recommending to friends and family.
Very pleased indeed and feel very confident with the future flights that I have booked. The App is easy to use and very reassuring
Dealt with Shelley Dimes who was absolutely brilliant, so helpful and professional and was always at the end of the phone every step of the way. High praise to her.
I've always been highly satisfied with the service I get.
It's great to have a real person to talk to and arrange things. Jane and Sadie were both helpful and attentive including a pre-trip call back from them to make sure we had everything covered. The app also made the trip easy to manage on the hoof which was important as we had multiple flights.
Very professional service.
Lily Reeve was fantastic.
We had a relaxed trouble free trip and the tour company was friendly and reliable.
Fabulous service, thank you Eric
I will definitely recommend family and friends to use your company
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!
