You considered every detail.
Just wanted to say a huge Thankyou for organising such a wonderful trip. We absolutely loved it, just not long enough for me. You considered every detail. Every camp was different and very unique and luxurious. We were treated like kings and queens which was kind of embarrassing. Africa is most certainly a captivating place and we loved interacting with our fabulous guides.
... an excellent African holiday experience...
Experiential Travel crafted an excellent Africa holiday for us. All of our goals were met and fitted perfectly into the time available.
Exceeded Every Expectation!
We've been waiting to take this trip for 30 years and had a very clear idea of what we wanted to see and do. Neville created an itinerary that incorporated it all and then some; from safari to the great migration to gorilla and chimpanzee trekking to boat rides with hippos and cultural immersion. This trip had it all. Accommodations and experiences were amazing with knowledgable guides and a... Read this review

This experience was truly remarkable
Our South African trip organized by Experiential Travel and Neville was first class in all respects. Deanie and I have been to Africa and various other countries over the years and this experience was truly remarkable from the start. Small details like all flights and transfers being on time and being met by lovely people who are passionate about hospitality. The first class accommodation in Cape Town, Paarl and...

...simply wouldn’t have been possible without Neville.
My grown sons and I had dreamed of a trip to South Africa since they were small boys. Having gotten through the pandemic and with the boys wives both saying it was time to start a family, we all agreed it was now or never. One of my sons is a budding photographer and met Neville through a photography club. When he learned Neville was also the owner of... Read this review
It was an extraordinary trip.
Neville has years of African travel experience and proved to be a knowledgeable planner with a keen ability to match a traveler’s personal interests to different itinerary choices. From touchdown to takeoff in Johannesburg the trip was seamless. We learned that Neville was never far away, whether in Melbourne or travelling; and with boots on the ground in Africa through his partners, he was able to tweak and make... Read this review
Attention to detail
Neville did an outstanding job of patiently answering all our pre-trip questions and was a font of knowledge about the landscape, animals, people and culture along the way. Planning and executing such a trip requires attention to detail and an appreciation for the individual differences inherent in any travel group. Neville certainly took the stress out of undertaking this type of adventure and incorporated some lovely surprises along the... Read this review
Experience of a lifetime.
When the idea of a safari was raised over dinner with friends one evening I was initially hesitant to be involved. I’m not a seasoned international traveller and had heard many stories of the possible dangers in visiting Africa, both cities and country. I am so pleased I was convinced to go because it turned out to be an experience of a lifetime.
A lifetime of memories!
Experiential Travel has always accommodated me with premium air travel where possible. I’m a big guy, and it’s much appreciated. For me, it makes the trip so much more enjoyable at the start, the end, and in-between. I have also requested single accommodation at times, and again, where possible they have done their best to make it happen. I don’t mind paying a premium for trips that provide a... Read this review
Valuable pre-trip planning.
I traveled to Namibia with Neville and a group of photographers last year. One of the most valuable things Neville provided was pre-trip planning. Having never been to Africa, I was unsure of what I should pack for the two week adventure. Neville provided me with the help I needed to make sure everything went smoothly. His knowledge and planning made for a smooth and stress free adventure.
