The Intrepid team created an amazing trip for us to South Africa. Every detail was orchestrated perfectly. We will never forget the people, the animals, and the places we visited. Thank you!

Intrepid Expeditions arranged our 20 day trip to South Africa and it was a once in a lifetime experience and a must do for everyone. They arranged safaris at two game lodges in Thornybush and Sabi Sands. Then onto Capetown, the Winelands and the Garden Route. I can't imagine a better safari experience. Every part of the trip was top class and every arrangement went like clockwork. We can't wait to use them again on our next trip to Africa. Once you go you will come back.

The team at Intrepid Expeditions made our safari adventure to Tanzania incredible, elegant, easy and unforgettable! We recommend them highly and will eagerly use their services again.

We were a family of five (three teenage kids) travelling to Tanzania in August 2021, during COVID. Despite all challenges associated with COVID, testing, constantly changing rules and regulations, and all the myriad of logistics...Intrepid Expeditions and their team came through!

They met our budget, very highly knowledgeable, took care of every detail and were immediately available when anything was needed. They helped us put together the perfect safari that worked with our budget. Even when COVID hit, the team gave us constant updates for our trip, and allowed us to seamlessly postpone from 2020 to 2021.

Once we arrived in Tanzania, everything was thoughtfully organized. We were met by helpful, professional representatives who shared updated itinerary, and the process of moving from one lodge or park to the next was flawless. All in-country staff were highly professional and went out of their way to make our trip an unforgettable trip of a lifetime.

5-star experience all around. We highly recommend using Intrepid Expeditions and have already recommended them to friends - and we will certainly work with them again ourselves!

My wife and I used Intrepid Expeditions for our honeymoon and we can't say enough good things about Intrepid Expeditions and the team! What immediately struck us was how knowledgeable and helpful they were. This was our first time going to Africa, and they helped us put together the right safari that worked with our budget. Even when COVID hit, the team gave us constant updates for our trip, and allowed us to seamlessly postpone from 2020 to 2021.

Everything was taken care of, so all we had to worry about was enjoying our time and seeing the incredible wildlife.

We highly recommend using Intrepid Expeditions if you're even thinking about going. We can't wait to go back to Africa and plan to use Intrepid Expeditions and the team again soon!

The Intrepid Expeditions team was absolutely a gem to work with - they took care of all the arrangements and every schedule change that came along. Clear communication before, during and even after the trip. The trip was everything I hoped for because Intrepid Expeditions took the time to find out who I was and what I wanted. I can't speak more highly of their efforts and the trip they arranged!!

We had the most incredible time! South Africa was such a great choice. We fell in love with the country and can’t wait to return.

The safari experience at Sabi Sands was definitely a highlight. It was so surreal to be so close to these animals in the wild. We also didn’t realize we would be offroading to find the animals. We learned that Sabi sands allows that and Kruger park does not. We were very happy with our choice in Sabi Sands! We can’t wait to return to Africa and just go on several different safaris. We wished we had booked a safari at another location as well. But we just didn’t have the time for it and I would not have given up the other cities we visited. Another highlight was seeing a great white shark at Grootbos! Additionally, Samo (our wilderness safari tour guide) was EXCELLENT! We didn’t realize we would have the same person transferring us around as well as serving as our tour guide. He was so knowledgeable and beyond helpful! Will definitely request him for next time.

Everything was perfectly organized and we cannot wait to return. There are few places we visit and want to return to before visiting somewhere new but South Africa was definitely a spot to return to immediately. We can see how people become obsessed with going on safari!

Thank you so much for your help in planning our dream honeymoon! We also really lucked out with the timing of the trip! A big thank you to Intrepid Expeditions as well for their concern after we reached out on the tail end of the trip. We were worried about our return flights and their communication made all the difference.

I loved my experience in Africa arranged by intrepid expeditions. I had very specific requirements for my trip to Africa and this company was able to meet all my demands. Specifically, I wanted an interactive trip rather than a tourist experience and they made it as personal as possible while catering to my specific needs. I definitely would take another trip through them.

You nailed it! Elephant Pepper Camp was perfection. Kind, informative staff. All Masai ..they know their surroundings better than any! Brilliant game drives...fun & interesting guests .....willing to share stories, photos... The rooms were just right...tasteful decor...comfortable beds Everyday was packed with amazing views, experiences...Leperes (our ranger) gave us the most outstanding camera positions.

“Thank you Intrepid Expeditions. The trip was absolutely wonderful…almost total perfection. We appreciate all your attention to detail. We had an amazing trip. Jimmy, our local guide, was fabulous as was our guide at Magashi. The staff at both Volcanoes and Magashi were outstanding as were the meals and accommodations. We had 3 very special Christmas dinners…the food and service were top notch. Magashi is a real gem. So unusual to have so much privacy and we saw everything…lion, leopard (including a cub), hyena, hippo, elephants, giraffes, buffalo, black rhino, etc. We even went fishing and the two times we went out on the lake, we were alone. It was so helpful to have the consistency of Jimmy throughout our trip. He really helped organize the right guides for the gorilla trekking as well. He was fabulous.
