Great experience with this Company. …
Great experience with this Company.
They looked after my travel plans and being a world traveller I would count this as one of my best travel experiences.
The sarfari at the Black Rinho Lodge was just the amount of animal contact I wanted.
The Rovos train from Pretoria to Cape Town was out of this world . While the accommodation I had in Cape Town was excellent.
Karen McKilliam, the agent at Bench Africa locked into what I wanted to experience and her professionalism was excellent. Ask for Karen as she is outstanding in communicating and her travel plans for me was spot on. No worries in the whole of my trip.
Would love to travel with this Company again
Without a Hitch!
I headed ott to travel via the Rovos train from Pretoria to Cape Town.
A remarkable trip in itself but further enhanced with the help of Karin from Bench Africa.
Karen organised all my internal travel by car and train within South Africa.
When the schedule said car pick up , there was a car to pick me up.
My ten day trip entailed a safari and train trip.
All went so smoothly that as a world traveler I would consider this adventure as one of the best I've experienced.
I organised my flights with frequent flyer points but everything else was done by Karen from Bench Africa
Would recommend this company without hesitation.
An amazing company providing life changing experiences.
Life long memories that will never fade.
Most beautiful staff who truly care. Another level of customer service that I have never before experienced -- exceptional
