We just wanted to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed our tailor made Andisabe package with Heri as our driver and guide. Andisabe was excellent with great lemur sightings and we really enjoyed the walks that we did including a night walk where we did manage to spot some night lemurs. The Eulophiella Lodge was lovely and quiet and we were kind of glad that we weren’t at a really busy place. The staff there looked after us very well and the meals were lovely too. Beautiful setting and we could also hear the lemurs call in the morning. Heri our driver and guide was lovely guy, knowledgeable and looked after us very well.
Our hotel in Tana – Les 3 Metis – was lovely and we would happy to recommend them – their restaurant served excellent food and the staff were also very nice. While not a lot of English is spoken we had no problems there. We were also able to store our extra luggage with them while we went off on our tour.
We’d love to see something more of Madagascar in the future – a beautiful and fascinating country and we only saw a very small part of it.
Thank you again for making our travel arrangements Ruth and we would be happy to use Jenman again in our future African travels.
With kind regards and best wishes

My wife and I went to Cape Town to visit our daughter and we arranged for Jenman Tours (excellent driver and guide Chantal) to drive us around from Cape Town along the “garden route” as far as Addo Elephant Park with stops along the way there and back. We are interested in wildlife (especially birds) and our driver/guide Chantal was very knowledgeable and as also brought many reference books for us to consult as we drove along. We first went to Oudshoorn to see Meercats (highly recommended) and visited an Ostrich farm (interesting for kids) and then onto Addo (also highly recommended). Addo is amazing for elephants but also herds of zebras. warthogs, Hartebeest and many species of antelope-like animals as well as a male lion. In Addo Chantal drove us around as our guide. On the way back to Cape Town we stopped in Knysna area/Plettenberg Bay and Robberg Peninsula and Tsitsikamma National Park (also highly recommended). Finally on to Hermanus, then Betty’s Bay (penguin colony) and Cape of Good Hope and then back to Cape Town. The hotels that Jenman picked were all very good (will review separately). Chantal a great driver and guide and what a luxury to have your own driver for just the two of us. South Africa roads (at least in the Western and Eastern Cape) are good and it seems you could hire a car and drive yourself but if you can afford it, go with Chantal. You will see more and have a more relaxing time.
We went on the Jenman Tanzania breakaway safari in Jan 2013. It was amazing! The weather was great, we saw the big 5 plus other animals too, and the landscape was stunning. Jenman exceeded our expectations in terms of their Safari guide. Charmy, our guide, was knowledgeable, experienced, and personable.
We had a blast.
Highly recommend this safari company and the expert, knowledgeable and exciting experience we were so fortunate to enjoy with our guide, Chantel van der Linde. We visited several wildlife reserves, saw amazing wildlife, breath-taking scenery and were emersed in Chantel’s insights into the culture and history of Sout America. This tour and our guide, Chantel, totally exceeded any expectations we had prior to leaving. Mick&Jude, British Columbia, Canada
I wanted to thank you so very much for making my trip to Africa happen. It was a superb two weeks and I had such a memorable time travelling through Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe. The tour was brilliant – Joe, our guide, really made the trip for the whole group and the truck got us from start to finish with no trouble at all. I was really impressed with the accommodation too, especially the Guma Lagoon Lodge and Camp Kwando. Both memorable properties that were highlights for me personally.
It really was the trip of a lifetime and I’m excited about sharing my insights and experiences with the On The Go Tours team so they can come to understand what makes Jenman Safaris so great.
Thank you again for this incredible adventure.
We have just completed a 24 day Safari from Cape Town to Victoria Falls with Jenman. The trip was amazing. We spent 14 days exploring Namibia. The Terrain in Namibia varies a great deal. The plains near the Orange River are very fertile and ideal for growing citrus fruits and grapes. There are several different mountain ranges, all spectacular and varied in size and shapes. Namibia also has the worlds 2nd largest Canyon called Fish River Canyon which is quite spectacular. There are also large desert areas that stretch for hundreds of Kilometres. The sand dunes at Sossusvlei are absolutely spectacular. Etosha National Park has thousands of African animals and covers over 2000 square kilometres. In the North of Namibia there is a narrow strip of fertile land near the Chobe River and the Okavango delta which has millions of litres of water and is a haven for Elephants, Hippopotamus and Water Buffaloes. This delta eventually flows to the Kalahari desert and never reaches an ocean. This region is called Caprivi.
We went into Botswana which also contains this rich delta.
Our last few days were spent in Victoria Falls Zimbabwe. The helicopter flight over the Falls was absolutely amazing and One of our many highlights of the trip.
Our guide Alfred Mhini and driver Bernard Tshunoa were fantastic. They were both most professional, efficient and knowledgeable. They worked well as a team and prepared many superb meals for us. Bernard was a skilled driver and able to maintain the vehicle which was driven through rough and bumpy terrain. Bernard would stop the vehicle at our request for photos. Alfred was able to identify all of the birds and animals for us. They made everyone in group feel special and they had a great sense of humour which made our trip most enjoyable. Alfred also had a great knowledge of the history of the people of the various area.
We would highly recommend this affordable Jenman Safari
