A 30th anniversary celebration to last for the next 30 years!

Every logistical detail was perfectly planned and executed. The accommodations -- we can't choose our favorite because all were superb, albeit each in their own unique way. The itinerary was full but not exhausting, and gave us a real sense of Southern Africa.

We would not have had the time or the knowledge to plan this adventure on our own...

I had never worked with a travel agent before and wasn't sure what to expect; a friend referred me to Southern Destinations, and I'm so glad she did.

Namibia: “Truly mind tingling…we couldn’t get enough of each place!”

We thoroughly loved the trip you planned.  The camps we stayed in were wonderful, staff fun and caring, and food great.  Wilderness Travel has particularly energetic employees and so ready to please. Onguma staff was great as well, very efficient.  The guides were terrific, especially Chris from Skeleton Coast. He knew everything about everything animal related, stars, plants.  All except shells, that was our inside joke.

An unforgettable birthday!

The trip that Liesl helped me to arrange was amazing!! My family and I had such a fantastic time, and I couldn’t have planned it without all the help, expertise, support (and patience!) of Liesl.

A very memorable trip and well worth the money

We just returned from a safari trip to South Africa arranged by Liesl and Michelle of Southern Destinations. This was our first trip to Africa and we were completely in their hands as novices.
