Awesome holiday. Awesome company to deal with.
Our family has just returned from the most amazing holiday organised by the wonderful people at Bench Africa.
In the beginning, my wife and I had absolutely no idea about where to go and what to do. We were also traveling with our two children (aged 11 and 13) so it was important to us that the trip was safe and planned to take their ages into account.
Julie from Bench Africa took exceptional care of us and planned the whole trip in meticulous detail. She took the time to understand what we wanted to experience and planned the most amazing itinerary for our family. It wasn’t until we were in the midst of our African adventure that we understood the time and effort that Julie and the staff had gone to.
Bench Africa didn’t just plan us a holiday, they planned us an experience. One that we will always remember.
I cannot recommend the people at Bench Africa highly enough.
We will certainly be using them in the future.
