All very good!
Keep up the good service
I flew as an assisted passenger and all arrangements were spot on! When we phoned to ask a question we were assisted most professionally.
Informative and knowledgeable with a personal touch. Helpful and always responded to emailed queries within an hour or so
Very helpful friendly service, thank you
Dan did an excellent job as always!
Everything went smoothly apart from the flight home. It was delayed 4 hours and because we had no signal out in the bush we were unaware. We couldn’t check in and so had to sit several rows apart.
Thank you very much
Noah’s service is excellent.
Excellent service as usual. Thanks so much. you take all the hassle out of booking a flight. Also it is no more expensive than having all the stress of doing it yourself. Will be in touch very soon
DialAFlight have been there for us each journey. Much appreciated!
I've been using DialAFlight for over 3 years. I speak to a real person within a few rings EVERY time I call. They really do get me the best deals and I usually travel to South Africa. I tell everyone I meet about how fabulous they are - I cannot rave enough about their service. Love 'em!
I would not hesitate to recommend DialAFlight to friends - they have organised several long-haul trips for us including this safari which was AMAZING - we loved it.
Excellent service as always
Usual excellent service from DialAFlight, thank you. Only negative was the chaos at the airports at both ends.
Great service and amazing support network. Really appreciated the pre and post trip communication. Excellent service.
Flights worked to schedule and the only negative is that the food served on BA is awful - but not your fault
Thanks to Hayley and her team!
Personnel all very helpful and well informed
I've dealt with Ashley Homewood for the past five years. Every flight I have booked has been backed by his personal service. Nothing is too much trouble and he's always prompt with his replies to my many questions.
My wife's flight was cancelled whilst in South Africa from Durban to Johannesburg. Michael managed to get her on another flight within hours, great service.
Gino was incredibly helpful. Amazing customer service.
Des Wing is fabulous! He has organised a few trips now for me and they all deliver.
Recommend using London City airport, very smooth and efficient. Landed and out of the airport in 35 minutes!
Very helpful and service was excellent. Will use DialAFlight in future.
Highly satisfied with our trip and always friendly staff - thank you
Super service. Would recommend.
Ashley and his team are amazing!
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!
