“Nicole "looked out" for us along the way and even helped us navigate the ever-changing Covid travel requirements. Right now... Nicole is working on a similar trip for us and 2 of our best friends in November, 2022”

Nicole has been helping us plan safaris for nearly 20 years. She is an African travel expert and has become a great friend over the years. She loves her work and she loves Africa and she watched us fall in love with Africa just like she did. Thanks to her Kenya has become our "happy place"...a place that is beautiful and calming yet full of adventure. 

The most recent safari she planned for us (December, 2021) was spectacular. It was postponed several times due to Covid but once we were able to go, it was perfect! The camps (and staff), the private flights, the long days in the bush, and the wonderful animal encounters were all beyond compare. 

Nicole "looked out" for us along the way and even helped us navigate the ever-changing Covid travel requirements. Right now... Nicole is working on a similar trip for us and 2 of our best friends in November, 2022. Thanks Nicole (and A2A)!!!

“Overall the trip was beyond my expectations. Thank you for organizing this trip and the patience in answering our concerns and queries”

Overall the trip was beyond my expectations. Our safari tour guide Mr. Elissa Ngonya was excellent. He was very knowledgeable and smart. He was a good driver and has a great personality and humor. He was accommodating to our requests and needs during the safari.  Definitely he is the best guide I have been with in all my trips. The Ubuntu migration camp staff also was also great. The accommodations and food  on both camps (Tarangire and Serengeti) were very good. Thank you for organizing this trip and the patience in answering our concerns and queries.

“I can’t put into words all the experiences we are having on a daily basis”

We are the only guests here at Ubuntu.  It’s our private camp and that’s an added bonus. The staff are so attentive to our needs (we are not a high maintenance group) but they made sure they take care of us well.

I can’t put into words all the experiences we are having on a daily basis. We have seen most of the things we wanted to see and we are just of our Day 5. We saw an actual lion hunt and we were just a few meters away. It happened right before our eyes.

Yesterday after our Game Drive, the staff of Ubuntu Migration Camp surprised us with drinks in the middle of the Savannah. Our guide was driving towards an acacia tree because he said he spotted a leopard on the tree. We tried looking for it but when our vehicle approached the said tree, the staff were there to surprise us with drinks. That was so nice of them. We appreciated it a lot.

“To do Africa right you need a travel agent, and to have the best travel agent you need Nicole at A2A Safaris”

Nicole at A2A Safaris is everything we could have asked for, and more, when arranging our honeymoon safari to Africa.  She has immense personal experience in the area and meticulously structured our adventure of a lifetime.

Her activity and property recommendations were exactly what we wanted, the duration in each location was expertly suggested, and she even assisted us with VIP transfer service when connecting at local airports.

Additionally, her organizational skills are air-tight, as she ensured all of our paperwork, including requisite COVID test, was correct and accounted for.

To do Africa right you need a travel agent, and to have the best travel agent you need Nicole at A2A Safaris.  Since returning all we do is daydream about when we can have Nicole send us back.

“Everything went off seamlessly.”

I wanted to report on the trip. It was great. Everything went off seamlessly. Singita Kwitonda is perhaps the best place I've ever stayed. I loved it. The staff was amazing too. Everything beyond perfection. The flight from Kigali to Kilimanjaro was great. I was the only one on the plane with a lady pilot! Tanzania was amazing too. It was a better safari than either of the ones I'd been on in Kenya and almost as magical as Rwanda. The guide was great. In Tanzania, I saw a leopard right out of the box, baby lions nursing, leopard cubs, a lion who wanted to eat me ( I swear she was staring at me and licking her chops - the guide moved the jeep LOL)!

“It was everything we expected and so much more”

My family just returned from a South African safari arranged by Lieze of the A2A NY office. Other members of my family have used A2A for other safaris in other locations in Africa. I am very pleased and thankful for A2A'S expertise, knowledge, assistance and guidance in helping us get the best value & experience. Everything went smooth, seamless and they even prepared us for the trip with valuable and helpful information. They were easy to reach & communicated very well with us. We love the memories & friendships that were made at the camp we stayed at. It was everything we expected and so much more. Thank you A2A & a shout out to Lieze for recommending, arranging & coordinating with your office in South Africa for our stay at Nottens for a very memorable safari experience. A big thank you from the 5 of us who celebrated various family events in such a special, one of a kind setting!

“Really the trip of a lifetime”

We just got back from a fantastic trip, really the trip of a lifetime, to three camps in Botswana (in the Okevanga delta and the Kalahari), as well as to Vic Falls. This truly excellent trip (in terms of choice of lodging, camp experience, and sequence of experiences) was put together by Nicole at A2A. She did an amazing job of anticipating what we would like, after talking with me over several conversations. She also worked with us on managing the budget in any way she could. She added a 'surprise' at a couple of our stops that made the trip even more memorable! Highly recommend you seek out A2A (and Nicole, in particular) when you are looking for an amazing visit to Botswana!

“It was truly a trip of a lifetime for us!”

To say we had an incredible experience on our trip to Africa would be an extreme understatement. It was truly a trip of a lifetime for us! We decided last minute to do our Honeymoon in Africa and had zero clue where to even start. Luckily, as we were talking to a friend about wanting to go, we were referred to Nicole and her Team at A2A Safaris. I don’t know how she did it, but Nicole was able to pull together the most fabulous itinerary in such a short amount of time. Her knowledge and experience, sprinkled with a little bit of luck availability wise, left us with the best itinerary we could have asked for. We spent a few days in Cape Town, then made our way into Botswana for our Safari experience. We went to 3 camps and spent 3 nights at each: Jack’s Camp, Qorokwe Camp and Abu Camp. Each was a completely different and yet amazing experience. Nicole planned our trip in such a way that each day exceeded the expectations of the previous day. I kept thinking that there was no way tomorrow could be better than today was, but yet each day just got better and better. 

So, if you are wanting to plan a trip to Africa and have no idea what you are doing (or even if you do), I highly recommend Nicole and A2A Safaris. They take care of EVERYTHING, so you literally just show up and the rest is all done for you. 

Thank you, Nicole! This was a trip we will never forget. Your help, expertise and guidance made this an experience of a lifetime for us!

“Everything from transfers to the safaris and overnight accommodations before and after the trip were perfectly synchronised!”

Through A2ASafaris, Nicole arranged a 4-night safari excursion to Tanda Tula in Kruger National Park. Everything from transfers to the safaris and overnight accommodations before and after the trip were perfectly synchronized. She was responsive to all of our requests and provided suggestions which worked out well.

“Helpful in leading us to a great destination”

Always very responsive.  She was helpful in leading us to a great destination and subtle but helpful in dissuading us from a more hectic itinerary.

“Absolutely fantastic trip! ”

Lieze and Edwin were very responsive, helpful and knowledgeable! From booking to returning, the entire experience was easy and carefully planned! Madikwe Dithaba Lodge is an outstanding property where the staff really goes above and beyond to make a special experience for every guest! Every detail is thought through and it blends luxury with comfort! also, the game rides were spectacular! We saw animals extremely close and experienced great sites! Definitely recommend and will try to repeat this adventure! Everything was thought through during our stay, every detailed was carefully prepared. The staff was not only friendly, but attentive and proactive, from Aubrey and Connie, the managers, to Girly, the chef, Celestina and Precious, our servers, they made our stay memorable! Our ranger Will was also great! and the game viewing was fantastic with never more than 3 vehicles but most of the time we had the experience to ourselves. The lodge is not only luxurious but cosy and with breathtaking views!
