Hi Erica – thank you for the follow up – our experience was pleasant and certainly worth doing. The conference venue is a bit “rustic” and because of that we would probably not return there but the Ox Wagons look cute. I would suggest that they consider playing some lovely Christmas music in the conference venue – that would have made the world of difference to the experience being restricted to indoors due to weather conditions?

The Elephant Interaction was amazing. Our reception was warm and welcoming, and the staff and handlers were terrific. Being an ex Zimbabwean myself, I had a good chat with the Zim handlers too.

I have already told many of my friends about the interaction, and you should hear from most of them sometime in the future.

Hi Erica, yes the experience was great. The quad trail was nice but not awesome I.e. It was a fixed course within a farm. It would have been better if it went past a river or up the mountain or surrounding hills but I guess it was just an hour course so not enough time. The picnic on the other hand was absolutely terrific. My wife and I had a great time and will def go there again. Thanks for arranging this special anniversary day for us.

Dear Erica

Our stay at Butjani was fantastic! The accommodation was so different but really lovely- you really feel a sort of connection with “the bush” without having to sleep on a blow-up mattress and contend with the elements that go hand-in-hand with camping, the food was superb and the surroundings were just beautiful.

Of everything there the hosts deserve special mention though- what a fantastic family! They were friendly and welcoming and they just added a sense of warmth to the whole occasion- I found it so much nicer than staying at a hotel where you are merely one of many guests- the personal attention was great and we really enjoyed sitting around a fire and chatting to Penny, John and Stuart as though they were old friends of ours. All in all, it was a very memorable experience and we will definitely recommend Butjani to our friends (in fact we’d like to book all 4 chalets some time and take a bunch of friends there for a weekend).

Thank you once again for setting this up for us and yes, I’d love to receive your newsletters! The whole experience has been fantastic from start to finish- we felt that we didn’t have to worry about anything which was just perfect for arranging what was for us a very special occasion.

The chef, Alletta who made us all those beautiful meals was on point every time. The experience once again was more than what i had anticipated and you guys went the extra mile to make it worth my while.

I will be using your service again in the future you can be sure of that. Thank you again.

Good Morning Danielle,
The Hot Air Balloon Experience was fantastic and more than what we were expecting.It certainly was a memorable experience and this is one more item that can now be removed from the “bucket list”.
The guys at Air Adventures were superb and truly professional.Their operation is slick and runs like clockwork.
I would like to be part of the African Chapters Newsletter.
Thank you for the great work on your side in arranging this fantastic experience for us.

The trip was a huge success, we enjoyed every minute of it and even stayed for an additional night (on Sunday). The Activities were so much fun and we couldn’t have asked for a better bush break.
I would like to thank you for all the bookings made and excellent services we received from the african chapter, we will definitely consider you for our next adventure and refer others.

Good morning Danielle,

The Elephant Experience was amazing; my niece and I couldn't stop grinning we were having so much fun. The staff were awesome; we couldn't have had a better experience and for what it cost, it was an absolute bargain.

Please add me to your list and thank you very much for your assistance in booking this truly wonderful experience. I can't wait for my sons to be old enough to join me on a similar African adventure.

Hi Erica,

Thank you for the mail. My parents had a great time. My mom couldn't stop raving about the hospitality, she had no complaints. All she said that she wished she had her face massaged. That's all. Otherwise she was very impressed.

My dad mentioned mosquito's in their room (lol) but that was it. They had a great time!! Thanks for everything.

Many Thanks

16 August 2010 - Casa De Sol and Elephant Experience in Hazyview

Goeie more Erica

Wil net graag baie dankie se vir al jou moeite met die beplanning van ons naweek. Dit word regtig waardeer.

Ek was bang dat dinge deurmekaar gaan wees omdat ons so op die laaste oomblik die dinge bepspreek het, maar alle reelings was perfek en presies. Daar was niks wat so naweek kan bederf nie.

Die olifante was voorwaar ‘n ondervinding wat nie net ‘n hoofstuk in jou lewe se boek is nie, maar so twee of meer hoofstukke sal opmaak!

Weereens baie dankie vir alles!!

Groete
Louis

Hi Erica,

We enjoyed our morning - it surely was exciting and a huge surprise to my husband!!

Having a last minute booking arranged by you, I think it was a job well done. As you know, we had to be at the meeting point very early, our names were on the list, our info was printed and confirmation received, and my husband even received a birthday card.

We had a fantastic time and thank you for all your support and good service delivered. You are a star!!

18 March 2009 Hot Air Balloon Experience

Erica

I want to thank you so much for all your trouble and everything. My mom had an absolute blast! The balloon ride was amazing and apparently the wind direction was perfect. She really had the time of her life. The rest of the organizing went great! We joined her as she lifted off and everything ran smooth. The park was amazing and we all had a lovely time. My mom said it was truly one of the best days of her life.
I'll send you a photo or 2 when i get them, so you can see the fun we had.

Once again thank you for everything you did. You were a great help, I dont think we could have asked for better service or a better day.
If there is someone I could send an email to, complementing your help and service, I would really appreciate it.

Regards
Nicola

Dear Erica,

My brother and his wife had the time of their life!!! They cannot stop talking about this and honestly, they are driving me crazy of how wonderful it was, of how great is was… (I think it is only the jealousy in me getting annoyed)!!! Thank you for all your help regards to arranging all of this for me. I might be thinking of doing the same thing soon if they do not stop talking about the wonder trip they had. My brother’s wife was SO surprised, she actually had no words… and for her not to have something to say takes a lot.
Thank you once again and I am sure that we will communicate in the near future again.

2 March - Hot Air Balloon Tala Game Reserve

Hi Erica,
My vakansie is verby en ek het dit terdee geniet.Die hoogte punt was die lug ballon. Dit was n geweldige verrassing vir my vrou gewees. Dit was n belewenis. Dit was die oggend van die 31ste Jan baie mistig toe ons gestyg het. Ons het bo die mis uitgestuig en kan jou nie beskryf die stilte wat ons ondervind het nie. Ek sal my vriende aanbeveel om die ballon te bespreek. Hulle is baie goed. Ek kan minder goed praat vanTala Game reserve. Dit was baie duur vir wat ons ontvang het en het nie aan my verwagting voldoen nie. Die wild parke wat ek al by was was van baie goeie standarde.Die wild park self het gewelig baie wild en dit het weer opgemaak vir die akkomadasie.
Graag wil ek jou in besonder komplimenteer vir seep glade reelings en jou aanhoudende terugvoering. The African Charter is "great" en ek sal weer van julle dienste gebruik maak.

Thanks again for all your effort and assistance and I hope you have a fabulous 2009!

9 February 2008

Hi Erica,

It was a most memorable experience.

Amanzingwe Lodge was marvellous. We enjoyed the dinner that night.
We wished that we could have stayed there longer.
However, it is 20min from the Airfield, so we left the lodge at 4:30am - and the guard
needed to be woken up to open the gate. This was an irritation as we were aiming to be at
the airfield by 5:00am.

Our treatment at the balloon flight was also excellent. We just wished that our companion flyers
were English speaking (or willing to speak English), which would have made the whole experience more fun.

Nevertheless, the whole organisation was impressive - we would like to try flying again sometime !

Best Regards,

Siva Nair

Hi Julie,

Thanks for the follow up. Norina had a wonderful time. As far as I know, it was only the fuel fare that was the problem, as we were not informed about it until the very last minute, but we sorted it out and everything went smoothly.

Thanks for all your help.

Hi Erica

Greetings and compliments of the new season. I hope you had an enjoyable festive period. I had a great holiday season and only returned to work yesterday.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the professional way in which you assisted me in organizing my group’s getaway at Leopard Song Lodge. It was a great pleasure working with you.

I can confirm that everything was organized and setup to our satisfaction. My group was very impressed.

I would like you to pass on a great THANK YOU to Makkie and her team at the Lodge. They were patient with us, very courteous, smiling all the time and very helpful. Makkie’s friendly laughter will be remembered by the team always. The food was superb.

Once again, thank you for having helped organize.

9 April 2008

Goodmorning Erica

Well we are back safe and sound in New Zealand, and nice to be home, although I dont know about back at work?

I just wanted to let you have coments on our experience.

First of all, thank you for all you did, Victoria Falls was amazing and far more exciting and spectacular than we imagined. We were a little frazzled when we got there, it was very hot and crossing the two borders was a real experience, not necessarily a pleasant one in the heat and unfamiliar processes that we had to do. No one really took any notice of our passports just stamped them and took the money!!!

However we arrived at the Kingdom Hotel and met by the very lovely Sandrah from Ambula Tours, with hotel flannels and a nice cool orange juice, we could have hugged her!!!

The Kingdom Hotel was amazing and the staff just delightful. First night was the Zambesi River cruise, a great experience.

Up at 4.45am the next morning to walk with the lions - fantastic with a lovekly breakfast afterwards, we have some amazing photos.

A bit of a rest the the Helicopter Flight - wow, then the Rainforest walk which only 7 originally booked on but the whole 13 ended up going - it is definately a must. It was exhilirating, even though we had poncho's supplied by Sandrah we got soaked. We all decided to appreciate the Falls you need to do the Helicopter, Walk and Zambesi River Cruise. It was simply amazing and will stay wityh us forever.

We topped off the day and trip with The Boma, a really great evening and highly recommended.

As you can see a great time was had by all, the trip back across the borders was a little less stressful.

The wedding went well, Kruger Park fantastic so all in all a wonderful trip.

Once again thanks for all your help.

Regards

Noeline

Dit was toe third time lucky gewees en alles was perfek , behalwe die weer Saterdagoggend , maar ons het opgestyg en so n 50 minute vlug gehad. Die Olifante was n experience en half gewees en ons het dit baie geniet.

Baie dankie vir al jou reelings en moeite wat jy vir ons gedoen het – dit word hoog op prys gestel en waardeer.

Sal defnitief in die toekoms weer van julle dienste gebruik maak.

Dear Julie

Thank you again for the excellent and professional services that African Chapter Tours provided for our group in May 2008. It was a joy organizing this event with the help of Ms Julie Pretorius, since her swift replies and fast execution of requests made my life a lot easier. We have worked with tour operators in the past but this was by far the best experience. The coordination between African Chapter Tours and [our organisation] worked very well and we will certainly consider using their services again in the future should be have another event scheduled for South Africa.

Hi Erica,

Thanks for the follow up. I tried to give you a call late Wednesday afternoon but probably just missed you guys in the office. Everything went perfect thanks. The transfers we’re particularly smoothly – please pass on my thanks and appreciation to Roger and particularly Gordon who was particularly punctual and professional.

The Butcher Shop was also a great hit (I’d off course also never complain when getting the best steak and red wine that’s available in SA). As mentioned, the guys had supper at Moyo’s (Zoo Lake) the previous evening and everyone said that although the atmosphere was great, the food didn’t compare.

Thanks for the help in making it an extremely successful trip!

Should we ever require your company's services again, we'd certainly request Henry's participation. ... We really were very happy with Henry and your company.

Many thanks for your follow up. The Hot Air Balloon trip was absolutely wonderful, and thoroughly enjoyed by my Dad and Sue. As the balloon lifted off into the air, the most spectacular red sun rose out of the ground, which was totally awesome. They were served champagne on landing in a mango orchard. On arrival for breakfast at Chestnut Lodge they were greeted with more champagne and sparklers, and the staff singing Happy Birthday to my Dad. They were thrilled to receive their certificates as well! My Dad said that at 80, one’s had a lot of birthdays, and that this one was the most fantastic. Thank you so much for all your efforts, which are sincerely appreciated.

Kind regards Rosemary

Just a quick note to say thank you. We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed your beautiful country. Every aspect of the itinerary went smoothly and we always felt safe. You did a great job and your advice was correct time after time. Liese was fantastic and our kids really appreciated the gifts that she generously gave them. Her professionalism was spot on and we enjoyed her commentary. Please pass on our thanks to her once again. Highlights were Kruger, Sun City and shark diving at Mossel Bay. Capetown was just great. Julie – happy to recommend your services to other clients if needed.

24 November 2007

Thank you very very much for your assistance and all the effort you put into making arrangements. The weekend was really more than what I had anticipated. My boyfriend was speechless for most of it. The venue was everything a busy couple needs and deserves away from JHB. It was a clean, peaceful and friendly place from the minute we arrived right till the end. The staff are exceptional and I liked the fact that they were not confined to wearing uniform, being too formal and at arms length with guests. They were always available and ready to assist with anything.

Although it was schedule to be on Saturday morning, the weather was bad and still rainy so we could only fly the Sunday. I prayed hard, with all my fingers and toes crossed that it didn’t rain!!! The air balloon experience sure took our love and relationship to greater heights (literally). Feeling on top of the world (excuse the pun), We were both awed and left staring at each other in disbelief. My boyfriend still calls me every hour to say thanks for the fabulous and memorable gift.

You really helped a lot in making this happen,

Thanks again Mbali


5 January 2008

Thank you very much for everything. Our Elephant Sanctuary experience was absolutely out of this world and certainly exceeded all expectations. The staff were exceptional, from the second we drove through the gate. Our guide, Sam, was fantastic – with so much knowledge and information to share. The food, especially the Boma Dinner, was superb! We all certainly have added another chapter to our book of life!

Many thanks Jeanette

"Hi Julie, Thanks for calling and we are safely back after a faultless SAA flight, but actually are taking a few days to recover. It was a bit more tiring than I had imagined being the organiser of a trip as, although it was not a formal trip, somehow people looked to me for guidance on most things and I became the informal tour leader. So I did not relax quite as much as on a normal holiday. It's not always easy with 10 people in tow!! Nevertheless it was a great holiday and the weather was good. Also your travel bookings worked perfectly, congrats, and we had no problems at all. The Kruger day drive was wonderful, Piet a very good guide and the animals also did a good job. We saw a lot including 4 of the big 5, only Leopard staying hidden. The hotel in Sandton was a very lucky choice as it was right opposite Mandela square, so everyone could walk to the centre to shop and chill out. So all in all we did a good job, the trip worked well and your arrangements were faultless - well done. "

20 February 2006

“Hello family, good friends and Scupper Cat. I can put off this travel log no longer. We arrived in Cape Town Feb. 5th and it took us four days to get over the jet-lag. I hve never slept so much. We stayed in Bantry Bay just under Signal Mtn and Signal Hill. Many hotels and high rises. It is just up the road from Camps Bay where they have a terrific Beach that is also very crowed. We drove the Chapmans Peak road to the end of the Cape highest point rises 1942 ft. and the road drops 525 ft. to the swirling seas below and the view of Hout Bay. We did this a few times to get to the Indian Ocean side of the Cape for Golf at Cloveley and Steenberg golf courses, Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point lighthouse. Saw Penguins at Simon Town. We were not sure who was watching who. One was hatching right alongside of the pathway and paid us no attention. The other animals we've seen so far were Eland and Ostritch at Cape Point were we were to see Babboons but didn't until our trip to the Garden Route were they stopped the traffic. Golfed with the beautiful little Springboks at Atlantic Beach north of Cape Town across from Robben Island were Nelson Mandela was interened. It served as a penal colony from the 17th century until 1991. Today it is an ecological and heritage site. The view of Table Mtn from North of the city is spectacular especially with the tablecloth spilling over it. We were watching the kite boarders( a very colourfulscene) when all of a sudden they all came back to the beach. A helicopter had spotted a shark and advised them. We didn't spend much time in the city itself (too busy) but the buildings are very interesting. There is a Malay (people who came over from Sri Lanka),Township called Bo-Kaap. It is very colourful and there food is incredible. The Architecture around the Cape and the winelands is mainly Georgian Cape. Curly kew stuff around the gables. Mike, you know that great picture in your book of the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront? We went there a couple of times. It reminds me of Steveston waterfron Gayle on a much larger scale but the same atmosphere. Lotsa of restaurants and a large shopping centre. We drove on to the Cape Wineland last week and stayed at a very interesting Farm called Spiers. They have a Cheetah outreach station there so got to see the beautifull spotted cats. Whooo Scups, you wouldn't want to tangle with them. They have very long powerful legs and can reach 60 miles an hour in 2 seconds . We golfed at Erinvale,which is surronded by the Helderburg and Hottentots with a view out to False Bay. Everyday the Hots have clouds spilling over them. It was hard to concentrate on golf(but isn't it always so)? Just like Shawl Bay Peggy. In the Stellenbosch/Paarl Valley you wouldn't go thirsty. There is a winery every mile or so. The vineyards go up the sides of mountains and down. Wine and food is dirt-cheap here. We have paid $3.00 for two Panninis and a very good btl of plonk is $10. We have had wonderful dinners for $20. The housing prices for us would be about the same as Courtenay but it is wonderful for the Europeans. They get about 100rand to the pound. We have met some wonderful Africans. They smile a lot and when I mentioned that, they said it helps get through the day. Some of them live in horrible situations, little tin and wood shacks not bigger than our guest bedroom. Those that are fortunate to work, get up very early and are bussed in from the townships. There is one company that caters to them, called the Pit-Stop. We pay to have our car watched(not really necessary), When we got back to the car one fellow said, 'it was only touched by an angel'. There are quite a few coming from the Eastern cape 'cuz it's better grazin here.We are now in Hermanus, on our way along the Garden route. This is a little seaside town with 10thousand whites and 40thos blacks. Except for the summer months when the Brits come and the white numbers swell.Have a great holiday Chip and Donna and Bas and Paud. we are off to george tomorrow for 4 nites of 5 star comfort and 5 great golf course including the links at fancourt where they held the presidents cup in 2003. see you soon.”

“Apparently it was an absolutely stunning weekend! They had a wonderful time and spotted quite a few animals. Apparently there was a lioness with her cubs busy feeding on a kill too. Made their day! Said to thank you profusely for an absolutely fantastic weekend away. The clients have quite a few stories to take home with them. Thanks for everything Astrid. I will be in touch soon should there be further bookings! ”
