Otis was absolutely amazing. He is an asset to your company
We were kept well informed and Hudson was a great help.
Niall made our travel experience painless.
You are wonderful!
The Pepper club was fab - I’m going to miss that 5 star treatment, I was made for that! I have already been passing round the details and will be phoning Martin to say thanks and keep up the good work.
Perfect service as usual. We were unfortunate to have our car break down two hours away from the airport with no chance of making our flight. I phoned the emergency number and spoke to Rosie. Five minutes later she had the three of us booked on the next flight out. Stress free travel with the DialAFlight team!
We had an absolutely wonderful holiday. From the Game Reserve via the Garden Route to Capetown everything went to plan and all of the accommodation was of a very high standard. An unforgettable experience. Many thanks once again to Raymond and the rest of the team.
It was a pleasure dealing with DialAflight - efficient and friendly service
Same old, same old, perfect service from the DialAFlight team. 5* quality service, very competitive prices, regular updates on any changes to bookings, final check before flying/holiday to see if all the ducks are in a row.
As usual a very organised booking. I love DialAFlight.
Excellent service from Lloyd which made our holiday all the more enjoyable. All the arrangements went very well. Keep up the good service.
Great team. Brilliant
My greatest thanks for getting me on flights at short notice and getting me back home again.
Rick was as usual outstanding, thank you
Service was great. Very impressed with KLM. New businesses lounges at Schiphol were also very good.
Everything worked perfectly, as usual.
Service from DialAFlight was excellent, we had to change our plans several times due illness and DiallAFlight support was fantastic..
There still seems to be a problem about the airline getting details of my scooter which I supplied at booking. This caused hiccups which we had to surmount
So reasuring for us to know that your help during the recent BA strike was invaluable.
Excellent service from the original phone call, the booking and additional information. All the flights went well with adequate time between flights in each journey.
Excellent price and very good service/advice
DialAFlight was recommended to me by friends and Scott in particular who had provided excellent service for them He arranged our reasonably complex itinerary with our best interests in mind. He was efficient, kept our minds at ease with updates and as a result, everything worked smoothly. I would definitely use DialAFlight again.
So pleased to have used DialAFlight, my last minute booking all handled professionally and no hidden costs. Will definetely recommend and use again.
Good customer service and very friendly
Archie was amazing!
I found Anton very helpful and nice to deal with
Everything went smoothly and no lost suitcases thank goodness. Many thanks Harry, Emirates are a very good airline and you were very helpful.
Great team at DialAFlight.
Virgin let us down. Delayed 24 hrs on return in Joburg. Their communication was awful and nobody knew what was happening, least of all the Virgin staff. At 3am we were taken to a hotel and flew out on the night flight.
As always, well planned and great back up service
South Africa's Garden Route may not be the longest of the world's famous drives - but none are more scenic than the 190 miles between Mossel Bay in the Western Cape to Storms River in the Eastern Cape.
After touching down in Port Elizabeth, we drove to our first stop - the 61,000-acre Shamwari Game Reserve, which focuses on conservation sustained through tourism. The day starts at 5am at Shamwari, with a morning drive to spot any animals that might still be active from the night before.
ON THE LOOKOUT
We were delighted to see a leopard and lion on our first drive, and during the course of our stay, our ranger was able to sniff out the Big 5 - lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant and buffalo - with ease.
When you're not out searching for animals, the tented lodges provide luxury, each containing a plunge pool, wood-burning stove and indoor and outdoor showers.
Though the early start is a shock, the safari schedule does allow for lunches and dinners, and a welcome sundowner on the final drive of the day.
Observing the animals at close hand was a moving experience. Seeing the elephant herd was particularly memorable, with two baby elephants playing among the bushes. We were also lucky enough to see a pride of lions on our night drive.
NEXT STOP... PLETT!
After three nights it was time to move to our next destination. We drove for three hours to Plettenberg Bay, a seaside town with fine restaurants and outdoor activities. We stayed at the extremely comfortable tenroom Lairds Lodge.
Next day we hiked along the Robberg Peninsula. The national park provides three routes, depending on your fitness levels.
Plettenberg has a good selection of fish restaurants and our favourite was Fat Fish, which had great sushi and local specialities.
Our journey continued to the wine region around Franschhoek. This area became a wine-making centre following the arrival of French Huguenots and vineyards dot the landscape as far as you can see.
The French influence is notable, particularly when it comes to food. We stayed at La Petite Ferme, a restaurant with rooms. Our suite looked out over the valley and it was a treat each morning just to draw back the curtains.
One of the most enjoyable ways to experience the different estates is to take the wine tram. Each vineyard offers a generous sampling selection and you can buy cheese or snacks at most of them.
In the hills of Franschhoek, Mont Rochelle is a great place to walk off those calories.
We ate dinner at a new Indian restaurant called Marigold, which was one of my favourite meals of the trip. It was paired with craft beer from a nearby micro-brewery.
BEAUTIFUL CAPE TOWN
We ended our South African adventure with a stay in Cape Town. The natural setting is unforgettable with Table Mountain overlooking a long stretch of coastline. Our hotel was on the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront – a great base from which to explore.
Table Mountain had to be experienced (by cable car not climbing!) - and we gazed out from the flat summit alongside a group of dassies. They look like giant hamsters, but in fact are closely related to elephants. How can that be?
Robben Island is another mustsee. The former jail provides an emotional insight into apartheid and the struggle political prisoners faced. It's possible to see the cell of the most famous inmate, Nelson Mandela.
Back in the city, the District 6 museum also highlights the cruelty of apartheid.
While modern-day Cape Town recognises the hardships of its past, it is also a confident city. There is world-class food and wine to savour and two favourites were the Chefs Warehouse and the Pot Luck Club, which has 360-degree views of Cape Town (and the best fish sliders).
dinner with a view, Dash on the V&A Waterfront is hard to beat. As we
strolled back to our hotel by the waterfront, we reflected on two incredible
weeks spent exploring South Africa. Like the dassies lying on the top of Table
Mountain, we'd basked in the warmth of South African culture.
