13-Night Itinerary - Kenya, Zimbabwe & South Africa

Kirsty went above and beyond to take care of our ''Once in a Lifetime'' trip to Africa.  She planned every detail and took care of every single thing.  We has some changes during the stay and she re-arranged flights, covid tests, accommodation, tour, etc.  

Kirsty checked in with us everyday and sometimes twice a day! She made our trip absolutely PERFECT!! 

Thank you so much for making this trip beyond MY expectations.

13-Night Itinerary - Kenya, Zimbabwe & South Africa

From the very beginning of our communications with Kirsty from Anywhere in Africa Safari, we knew our travel was being well planned and that our travel desires were being considered and weaved into a package that would give us the African experience we were looking for.  Every camp that Kirsty booked was different than the other camps so that our Safaris were not a carbon copy of each other.  

All transfers went flawlessly and Kirsty was in communication with us throughout our trip.

Kirsty made recommendations and dealing with her was a breeze.  

Our favorite lodge was Marataba Explorers Conservation Lodge - we got to ''assist'' in relocating a Giraffe, helped with a buffalo capture, enjoyed incredible Waterberg mountain range.

Anywhere in Africa Safaris arranged a first class safari with flights and all transfers within 24 hours of our decision to travel.  

Kirsty is excellent, efficient and always gets her customers the best rates possible.  

There is so much added service using Anywhere in Africa Safaris and one does not pay more! 

Our safari was brilliant and I will continue to use Anywhere in Africa Safaris.

1-NIGHT TWELVE APOSTLES (BABYMOON)

Kirsty should add Babymoon-planner-extraordinaire to her list of services as she pulled off the ultimate weekend for my husband and I.  

We stayed at the 12 Apostles Hotel and she managed to arrange everything within a matter of hours (we're very lastminute.com kind of people).  

Kirsty is super passionate about what she does and we can't wait to arrange our first holiday as a family of 3 with her as our official tour operator.  

THANK YOU AGAIN KIRSTY

04-night Itinerary - Botswana

My family and I were really excited to experience the safari that Kirsty Gordon had planned for us through Anywhere in Africa Safaris.  She was extremely patient with us and paid attention to all of the details of our trip.  Unfortunately, our safari was cancelled due to Covid, however Kirsty kept us informed throughout the process and lobbied hard to get our monies refunded.  She responded promptly to all my calls and emails and came through for us exactly as she said she would.  As time went on, I learned that many people who were in my situation were left high and dry by their travel agent.  We were lucky to have been referred to Kirsty and Anywhere in Africa Safaris.  I look forward to working with Kirsty again to plan our safari which we hope to take in 2021!

14-NIGHT ITINERARY - BOTSWANA

Kirsty Gordon of Anywhere in Africa Safaris saved the day for us.  We were scheduled to travel to South Africa and Botswana in mid-March just as Covid-19 lockdowns, restrictions and closures were beginning to happen, yet our flights and the borders to the countries to which we were traveling had not yet been canceled or closed (meaning our trip insurance would not cover the costs if we decided not to travel).  Even still, we decided it would be prudent to travel (that turned out to be an understatement).  Kirsty was able to reschedule EVER aspect of our travel.  We did not lose a penny!  She was a calming force in a confusing time.  We will always book our travel to Africa with Kirsty!  Thank you, Kirsty!

12-night itinerary - Rwanda, Tanzania, Kenya

We first learned of Kirsty Gordon through a contact on Trip Advisor. We were originally scheduled to leave in August 2019. We were going to Rwanda to see the gorillas and then onto the Serengeti, visiting multiple camps. Unfortunately, a health issue came up and we had to postpone, but Kirsty was unbelievably accommodating and held onto our plan until we could reschedule. It is now 2019 and we are ready to re-book for not only ourselves but also another couple who wanted to travel with us in 2020, with a slightly difference itinerary. I hope you get the gist of how complicated this was, however, Kirsty made it a seamless process and all of us were thrilled with our upcoming safari. Now, it is March 2020, and COVID-19 has arrived. Once, again we were forced to delay. We decided to re-book for 2021 and again, it was Kirsty‚Äôs knowledge and relationships with all the local vendors that proved invaluable. We simply moved the entire trip from 2020 to 2021. Her relationship and knowledge are second only to her kindness, professionalism and positive attitude. We highly recommend her services. When planning the trip of a lifetime, why would you ever work with anyone but the best!!!

13-night itinerary - Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania

Kirsty has been amazing. 

She has been in touch with us on a regular basis letting us know what is happening in Africa, travel restrictions and our options. While my husband and I were trying to decide what to do, it was Kirsty who suggested that we postpone our trip for our own safety. This was absolutely the right decision. Kirsty made it so easy to do. She rebooked all of our hotels, flights and meals. She managed all of the details, while keeping us informed. 

For anyone thinking of going to Africa, I would strongly suggest you speak to Kirsty and use her services. She has made everything so easy!!!!

Itinerary - Elephant Havens, Safari in Botswana

Thank you Kirsty Gordon and Anywhere in Africa Safaris for your prompt, competent assistance in unwinding our May 2019 and August 2019 Botswana safari itineraries. These are complicated undertakings and you preserved our deposits and were able to duplicate each of the trips for a 2021 reschedule. I also thank you for helping those who were traveling with us to recover deposits even though they were not able to reschedule for next year. It is very fortunate that your good standing with the prominent safari companies made these cancellations and the rescheduling seamless and easy for us and the others we trusted to your care. Like that swan, everything looks elegant on the surface but under the water line in these times I know you are doing a great deal of churning.

This trip had a lot of moving parts and it went seamlessly. 

Kirsty is so knowledgeable about Africa and the nuances of each area/ city/ game camps, etc. It is quite impressive. Each appointed guide who met us along the way was as nice and responsible as the next. We always felt taken care of and all of the details were clearly spelled out. 

This was our second trip with Kirsty and will not be the last! 

We have and will continue to recommend Kirsty for a marvelous Africa experience.

I had never used a travel agency before this trip and without a doubt our trip would not have been the same had we not used Kirsty and Anywhere in Africa Safaris. 

Every activity, accommodation and piece of knowledge provided to us for our trip was top notch and way better than we would have planned for ourselves. Our trip was a huge success overall thanks to Kirsty and I would recommend using Anywhere in Africa Safaris to everyone I know looking to travel to Africa. 

We cannot thank Kirsty enough for making our honeymoon the best trip ever!

12-night itinerary - Honeymoon - Kenya (Masai Mara) and Seychelles

Kirsty planned our Honeymoon trip to Masai Mara in Kenya and Denis Private Island in Seychelles. 

Everything was planned perfectly and we would not change a thing. When there was a last-minute change to our flights that were out of our control, Kirsty adjusted our itinerary and made sure that we could still do all the things we wanted to do despite the changes. 

When we go back to Africa, we will definitely be using Kirsty's services again.

We had an amazing honeymoon adventure in South Africa, Victoria Falls and Botswana, thanks to Anywhere in Africa Safaris! 

Kirsty was thoughtful, knowledgeable, and generous with her time and recommendations. She was extremely accessible and responsive throughout the planning process and the trip itself, without ever being intrusive. She arranged amazing places for us to stay, wonderful excursions and excellent guides. We felt extremely well taken care of. 

We carry with us wonderful memories of our trip and hope to use Anywhere in Africa Safaris' services again someday.

''Kirsty Gordon and the Anywhere in Africa Safaris team, has changed my life - we have been traveling with them since 2015. 

Kirsty is the most trustworthy agent I have ever encountered and she ''never sleeps'', so not matter where you live, she is not only in South Africa's time zone, but also in your time zone. Their attention to detail is unbelievable and their trips always run smoothly. 

Kirsty and her team do everything humanly possible to make sure you are 100% taken care of.

Destination wedding in Seychelles for 50 people

''After having used Anywhere in Africa to plan an amazing safari in Botswana and Namibia, it was natural for us to turn to Kirsty and the AIA team, to help us with our wedding given we knew that we wanted it to be in the Indian Ocean. Kirsty did extensive research and found the perfect place for us, a private island in the Seychelles. Kirsty worked tirelessly with us, resort management, the wedding photographer and designer on all the extremely detailed planning, visiting the island, taking loads of photographs for us, and building a solid relationship with all the players. The wedding week went off without the slightest problem. Everything worked out perfectly. Our guests were absolutely delighted and we could not have been happier with the entire experience.  Kirsty did a truly outstanding job, and we are already planning our next adventure with her and Anywhere in Africa Safaris!''
