Words From Our Guests

“Well what can I say?  It’s been two weeks since we got back but unlike some other holidays can honestly say that I can still remember our trip as vividly as yesterday.

Thank you so much for all your help as we both really enjoyed ourselves throughout the whole time, so much so that we are thinking that next year (celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary) we will return to South Africa with yourselves to do sort of the same but different!

In terms of the last trip, apart from the weather we loved Cape Town and More Quarters (I had oysters for the first time ever and am now a convert), River Lodge was great and the Treehouse was definitely a must do again, the Saxon was just out of this world (need to go back again for two nights so I can get some proper man pampering in the spa) and ending off with Mauritius was ideal. 

Big thanks indeed to you and all the those involved in making our holiday fantastic and we WILL be back!”

“On behalf of my family, I would like to extend a huge thank you for the MORE team who made our first time trip to Africa so eventful and memorable.

It all started with Kaamilah Jeena who was so helpful and patient with all of our questions, requests, changes, and even the unpredictable losses in which we experienced with the Sabi Sand transfer. The journey  continued with the wonderful and welcoming staff in both The Stanley and Lion Sands River lodges , your employees were so welcoming and pleasant.

It all topped off with your extremely knowledgeable and amazing guides; Morne and Rector, in which words cannot describe how fascinating they were. They interested our kids so much that they didn’t have a problem with waking up early in the morning.

I must share with you that the love and devotion all of you have towards the company as well as the appreciation your team has for you, Robert More, it blew our mind away and I have to say that  you should be very proud in leading your brilliant and professional staff.

Both my husband and I are in the travel industry and we have traveled across many land, but we have never experienced such a high level of service along with a great personal touch.

The MORE Private Travel team left us with so many incredible memories that we all agreed that we must come back.”

I just received your email about “A special year end message from MORE Private Travel”. We loved the video that your MORE family staff members made representing “A Day in our MORE World”.

It was a great touch and truly did show how committed your organisation is to making your guess dreams come true.

Being from the USA and not having any prior experience with South Africa Tour companies, your booking process this past year has been outstanding. Every opportunity we get my wife and I love talking about your tour company to all our friends and business partners.

The video will now make our trip so much more special once we get to meet your wonderful staff in January 2019.”

“Lize-Ann and Chanelle, you have been exceptional in your help, and your expertise is much appreciated. Thank you so much!”

“Hi Aneen, I wanted to thank you again for such a lovely stay. Madikwe is surely a special place. So many people warned not to bother bringing little ones on safari, but clearly these people have not been to Lelapa. Violet and Theo loved it! Kyle was the most incredible guide (and hide and seek participant), Banyana such a fun playmate, Pinky, Isaac, Johannes, Maureen – everyone was integral to the best experience that perhaps my kids won’t remember in detail, but I have no doubt has helped form them into curious explorers for life. 

We will surely be raving about it to all our friends and family!”

“My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our time in South Africa. More Private Travel was fantastic, and YOU were exceptional. Your staff were exceptional throughout, and deserve great praise! The assistance entering the country in Johannesburg, with your person meeting us at the gate because our connection was tight facilitated this process immensely. When we return to Africa, we plan on visiting Botswana and Namibia and certainly would love to see what you and More Private Travel have to offer.”

“Just want to convey our thanks for arranging our trip to Marataba! It was truly brilliant and a great way to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary with our children. This would not have been possible without your help!”

Thank you for helping me plan the surprise (successful) proposal and not forgetting a wonderful trip to South Africa. 

Thank you Bella for tirelessly trying to help me with all the bookings and logistics that started many months back and for trying to arrange the best for me! I know it wasn’t easy as I was a little fickle-minded initially but you thought everything out for me!

Thank you Chanelle and Patricia for entertaining my numerous questions and queries, almost painting a mental picture for me of what I envisioned the proposal night would be. It’s been as good as I had expected it to be and the results were amazing! 

It was the most amazing holiday Samantha and I had and I’m very sure we will be back with Lion Sands and the More team in the future!

“Frank and I got home yesterday from our trip. We just wanted to thank you for your help in arranging for a fabulous time at the Lion Sands River Lodge! We absolutely loved the Safari, the accommodation, the food and wonderful service. We met great friends and made memories that will never be forgotten. Thanks for your patience and guidance in planning our trip. I can’t imagine a better experience!”

“Both you and Lize-Ann have been so incredibly helpful, immediately responsive and fabulous with the planning. It’s a big trip for us. Team MORE Private Travel has made it seamless.”
