South Africa Safari

Sundowners in South Africa.

South Africa is one of the easiest and most affordable places to experience a Safari in Africa!  There are so many things to do for adventure in South Africa, for some history try spending time down in Cape Town or a couple of nights in Johannesburg. If you are into wine then maybe a few days on the Garden route outside of Cape Town visiting some vineyards might be for you!  South Africa is the perfect location to visit other countries close by without alot of trouble. Try a stay at Victoria Falls where you can swim in Devils Pool, take a day trip to Botswana or do a Zambezi river cruise.  So much to do and see, let me help you decide!

I have just spent some time down in South Africa at Kruger National park!   Kruger is world famous for seeing the big five!   I picked a couple of different private reserves in Kruger and split my stay between two different lodges and areas.   My first stop was a lovely stay at a luxury tented camp that was amazing!   We had all the creature comforts to rest easy but still had a very authentic Africa feel to it. Simbavati Hilltop sat high on a ridge with vast plains surrounding us and a large waterhole which was a huge plus!  Loved how the residence Hippos would start being active and making noise early in the morning and late at night!  Quite funny animals actually!  The game drives were superb led by our Ranger and Tracker.  Very knowledgeable about  the animals and knew how to read the land to find them in the vast wilderness!  At one point our Ranger parked our Land Rover where a herd of about 25 plus Elephants surrounded us!  Crazy amazing, something that one doesn't forget easily!   We then headed for a different part of Kruger and checked into a Luxury lodge that made us feel so very special for our entire stay.   Both lodges had amazing service and game viewing was top notch! During each game drive you stop about half way through and enjoy drinks and snacks, nightly tradition called "Sundowners"!   No game drive would be complete with a Sundowner!   Loved every minute of it!

If it's adventure you crave then Africa is perfect for you!    Africa has a way of affecting you deeply and keeping a part of your soul.   They often say that once you set foot on Africa soil it will call you back again and again!   Africa is easier to experience than you think and will change you forever!  Africa is a magical place that everyone must see at least once in their life!

Here's an agent that works for you!

Reviewed By Chicagokid - Firt Worth, Texas | Traveled to Barcelona ~ Spain ~ Europe
Teresa is the sweetest person to work with. She listens to what you want and expect on a vacation and delivers. Never pushy.
She is there from the beginning, during, and after your vacation to help you with any needs you may have.
She makes sure to help you with your budget not only whatever is available.
I would and have recommended her to friends who agree with everything I've said.
If you want someone who works for you, not just for the company, this is the woman for you.

25th Anniversary Trip

Reviewed By Richard & Natacha - Evansville, Indianna | Traveled to French Polynesia ~ South Pacific
Celebrating our 25th anniversary we wanted to do something special. We knew we wanted to go to French Polynesia however had no idea on which islands, which resorts. Teresa helped to guide us on an awesome experience from her personal knowledge of the area and was able to even keep it within our budget as well. Throughout the trip she created memories at each location that really stood out and made it feel extra special. Each stop on our trip was magical with added touches like rose petals on our bed, fine chocolates and champagne and a personal note from her at each resort she had delivered. During the trip we emailed her a couple questions, each time she was very responsive. She even checked to see how it was going for us in case we needed anything. Post trip she followed up to see how it went to ensure our experience was everything we hope for. With her help it certainly was! We would absolutely recommend Teresa to anyone based on the total experience she delivered for us on t

Trip of a Life time!

Reviewed By TipnDi - Mesa, AZ | Traveled to South Africa ~ Africa
Teresa has been a pleasure to work with from start to finish. She is very knowledgeable, gets things done in a timely manner, has an eye for detail to make your trip a Dream Come True! The trip was even better than Teresa detailed in the first itinerary! So many “Special” little surprises were included and wonderful...including a letter from Teresa when we arrived at Kings Camp welcoming us. I can’t imagine seeing everything we saw and did without Teresa’s expert planning! She is truly an asset to the company and her rating would be... Highly recommended!

We had a wonderful trip!

Teresa handled our cruise to Alaska last year and is handling our Panama Canal Cruise this year. She is extremely efficient at handling all the details. It made it so easy for us. We appreciated not having all the stress of taking care of everything ourselves. She's always available for any questions you might have and we will definitely contact her for our next vacation!

1st time to Jamaica

Reviewed By Bob - Mesa, AZ | Traveled to Negril ~ Jamaica ~ Caribbean
We walked into the office with a few ideas in mind but Teresa listened to what we really wanted and pointed us to Sandals in Negril, Jamaica. We had never been to Jamaica and had misconceptions. It was beautiful, the food was the best we've ever had on vacation and the weather was great (despite it technically being rainy season). She also got us a great price that I can guarantee I wouldn't have gotten on my own by booking my flights and resort. I will book my next travel with Teresa for sure!

One word - "INCREDIBLE"

Reviewed By Jean and George Adams - New Smyrna Beach | Traveled to Bora Bora ~ French Polynesia ~ South Pacific
Our trip to Bora Bora was absolutely amazing. From the first time I spoke with Teresa I knew she was the one that I would trust to help make this vacation dream come true. She knew exactly what questions to ask to make sure that our vacation was exactly what we wanted. Her suggestions were right on spot. She arranged everything - airfare, resort and all transfers- and it all went without any problems. She did such an incredible job that we are having her plan our trip to Bora Bora again next year. She is honest and does not try to upsell anything. She truly listens to you. Not only was the trip incredible but so is she!

Beyond all expectations!

Reviewed By Sheri - Mesa, Az | Traveled to Africa
I knew this trip would be good, but it surpassed every expectation I had. Teresa helped me plan it from beginning to end, ( and I only gave her 7 months). SHE NAILED IT!! We had amazing accommodations, and private transfers, and our trip just got better and better until we unfortunately had to go home when it was over. There was not a thing that my husband and I had to do, except enjoy our selves. Trying to decide where to go next, but I have no doubt, Teresa will be the one to plan it for me. I can't thank her enough for the best vacation of my life!

Always reliable

Reviewed By Rachel - Lakeside, AZ | Traveled to Jamaica ~ Caribbean
Teresa has been a godsend to me and my family. As soon as I make the decision to take a trip (whether months in advance or just a few weeks) Teresa always takes the stress out of the trip. She looks at the places I suggest but also adds in a few other destinations for me to compare and choose from. Once the informed decision is made she tells when and how much to pay, then sends reminder emails prior to the trip to make sure I am ready and remembering everything I need to do in order to have the best time. After the trip she always follows up so that she can ensure we have more great trips in the future. A couple times I have thought I would plan trips on my own, but always come back to Teresa in the end for the big ones!! I have, and will continue to, highly recommend her to my friends and anyone else interested!!

Literally, stress free booking!

Reviewed By Vee - Menlo Park, California | Traveled to Jamaica ~ Caribbean
Teresa was A MAZ ING! Simply. I reached out to her in February, I explained what our trip was regarding and what we wanted. She responded swiftly each time whether by email or phone. She was extremely knowledgeable and highly professional and personable. She was as if an old friend who was an expert in traveling! Basically! Lol! I truly appreciate Teresa's help and patience with our significant process especially because we couldn't book until a couple of months after due to delays that came up. Essentially, this wonderful customer oriented travel expert, had to do double the work for us and happily found us similar reservations and got us exactly what dates we wanted! Best part! Thank you so much again Teresa! Finding someone who loves what they do and you get the best customer experience, stop reading and go and book with her already! I know every trip I make will be through her here on out!

Trip of a Lifetime to the Islands of Tahiti

Reviewed By Matt and Megan - Phoenix, AZ | Traveled to French Polynesia ~ South Pacific
Teresa helped to plan our 5 year wedding anniversary vacation to the islands of Taha'a and Bora Bora in the South Pacific. From the first time we met with Teresa to begin planning our vacation we knew she was the perfect travel agent! She is great at making sure all the little details in your vacation are perfect, while still being mindful to stay within your budget. Teresa was very helpful at answering any questions before we left, and when we arrived back home, Teresa even followed up with us to make sure we had a great vacation!

My husband and I booked our honey moon trip with Teresa to two islands in tahiti. She made it super easy and stress free. This was the first time my husband and I have booked with a travel agent and booking our big trip with Teresa was a pleasant experience.

Wonderful Cruise

Reviewed By Jim - Mesa, Az | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
Never having been on a cruise (has always been on our list of things to do) we reviewed many websites on-line. Each cruise line made it sound so simple to book your own cruise on-line. Don't believe their websites will give you ALL the information you need.
We walked into World of Travel and met Teresa. It was late afternoon on a Saturday, probably time for her to leave for the weekend. Teresa still spent over 1 1/2 hours explaining things about the cruise we never would have thought to ask answering a multitude of questions. She was so knowledgeable, asking US a lot of questions as to what choices we wanted, then setting up everything up. Everything went so smooth.
Our trip turned out to be a wonderful experience. We owe a lot of its success to Teresa doing all the work for us. Next trip/cruise - we are calling Teresa.

Our first "Trip of a Lifetime"

Reviewed By t&R - Mesa, AZ | Traveled to Tahiti ~ French Polynesia ~ South Pacific
Teresa is extremely knowledgeable with the South Pacific, specifically with Tahiti. We have never been to the South Pacific and did not know the best places to go. Teresa offered a wide variety of suggestions including many different places to stay on several different islands. She offered the pros and cons of each location and resort. She works with your budget and finds the best option. We ended up at the St. Regis Resort in Bora Bora and Le Taha’a Island Resort & Spa in Taha’a. Le Taha’a was excellent for photographs and pearls and the St. Regis was ideal for relaxation, pampering and downright being spoiled silly to the nth degree. We highly recommend Teresa for all of your travel needs. We would not hesitate to use Teresa again for our next adventure(s).
