Our Guarantee

With a World Wide Web offering a multitude of different companies offering travel to Africa what makes Perfect Africa so special? As a specialist tour operator we take pride in treating you exactly as we would if you were friends or family. We love developing down to earth, honest relationships. Booking with Perfect Africa makes you a guest not a client, it’s ‘your holiday’ not your ‘file’, and your name rather than your reservation number!

Personalised & Focused

We tailor-make your itinerary until we’ve created a holiday that suits your individual needs and requirements rather than simply asking you to choose from options A, B or C. We focus on the magnificent destinations that Africa has to offer, along with the fantastic hotels and lodges to be found in each.

Based in Cape Town

Our offices are based in Cape Town, which we think is perfect! Apart from allowing us to live and work in one of Africa’s most beautiful destinations it places us Slap Bang in the middle of the action.


We’re passionate about this continent, its wildlife, its people and its huge potential and we take pride in being experts in African Travel. Between us we’ve travelled, worked, enjoyed and experienced most of the wonders in Africa.

Booking with Perfect Africa

Southern and East Africa is a vast, exciting, awe-inspiring, unexpected, adventure-filled, luxury, rough and rustic place to visit – filled with wild animals, ancient tribal cultures and the untamed forces of nature. At Perfect Africa we have collectively covered every inch of it – not because we had to – but because we love it. Africa is in our blood and we want to share that passion and our experiences with as many people out there as we can.

We are on hand to offer you real advice – our opinions are born from experience, not a merely desire to make a profit and we aim to fit you to the best properties and safaris that we can, rather than try and cajole you into booking somewhere that doesn’t ssuit your individual needs. We will be able to book your holiday for 5 – 10% less than if you went directly to the lodges themselves. This is because we have excellent relationships with all the accommodations we represent and we have been able to secure brilliant rates with them for you – and due to these relationships we are also able to ensure that your vacation is as hassle free as it can possibly be.

We have a firm belief that good advice will get us a lot further than simply selling any luxury African safari lodges. We want to ensure that your time in Africa far exceeds your expectations so that when you go home, you leave Africa knowing full well you will be back a lot sooner than you ever expected to be.

Our Travel Experts will ask you many questions to try and find out a bit more about who you are. This is very important as the wealth of different lodges, guesthouses and hotels that we have chosen to represent each have very distinctive characteristics and qualities. All of them adhere to the same standards of excellence, yet each is unique in its offering and only by properly understanding what your perception of an African safari is can we recommend the most suitable places for you to enjoy your time at.

We pride ourselves on our upfront critiques of any accommodations or experiences that we have chosen to represent, so you can be assured you will always be pleased with the decisions you finally come to.

Myself and my team at Perfect Africa believe in being customer-centric and pride ourselves in personalised service.

Our promise to you is that we will tailor each itinerary to your exact needs. African Travel, wildlife and conservation lie very close to my heart and by appointing a dedicated team that share the same passion for this untamed, rugged continent; your holiday to Africa will undoubtedly be nothing short of magical.

Dear Megan
Thank you for arranging our fantastic safari based at Kubu Kubu in the Serengeti. Everything was PERFECT.

We saw 4 of the Big 5 (lion, leopard, African buffalo, elephant) but, as there are an estimated 15 Black Rhinos in the area, we were thrilled to see 4 of 5.

Our guide Kizitio Wakara was delightful. Charming, intelligent, and always in the right place in the right time. We saw the Chumba (Iron) Pride of 30 lions stalk and kill several Thomson’s Gazelles.

Hi Megan & Cobus,

We just wanted to say thank you SO much for helping us organize the most amazing honeymoon!! It was truly a trip of a lifetime and we loved every minute of it. You guys gave us excellent suggestions and everything was organized wonderfully, down to almost too many complimentary bottles of champagne!!

We had one mishap that we thought we should mention for future bookings – we almost did not get into Mozambique as we weren’t aware of the amount of American cash that was required to…

Hi Megan,

I meant to write to you as soon as we returned from our trip, but time seemed to get away from me. I want to thank you for planning our great trip to Botswana. My sister-in-law, Emelie, and I had a fantastic time and stayed at some great lodges. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but I guess Savute Safari Lodge is it. Staff at all the lodges was very kind and very accommodating, but I think Savute has something just a little more special. Of course we saw our first wild dogs at Savute, so that may have contributed somewhat to our feelings. However, I can’t say anything bad about any of the lodges…
