We are now back to home after a 24 hour travel. I really would like to thank you for the very good organization from the beginning to the end. We all enjoyed it very much. Our guides were very helpful.
I especially would like to thank Jimi. I forgot to say goodbye to him while running after the children at the airport. So I would really appreciate if you could forward him my greetings.
Thank you again for everything and I would tell all my friends planning to come to Africa that they should contact you. Best regards from very cold Turkey

What a fantastic trip. We greatly appreciate all that you did for us. Your suggestion to stay at the Londolozi Granite Suites in Sabi Sands was wonderful. We had not heard anything about Londolozi before, since most of our friends have stayed at Singita or Mala Mala. I obviously only know what they told us which sounded great, but we don’t believe there could be anything better than Londolozi especially the Granite Suites. All of the Mantis properties near Cape Town were great and ending our stay at Cape Grace Hotel was perfect.

I cannot say enough thanks for all that you did for Jake and I. We LOVE South Africa and Zambia, somewhere along the way I lost my heart somewhere in Africa. I thought that Victoria Falls (was) a little piece of heaven on earth. Jake and I truly look forward to planning future trips with in the very near future.

I have now returned home from a wonderful work and personal experience in South Africa and I wanted to reach out to you to extend my sincere thanks for all of your diligent work on the Chevron World Cup program.
It has been an absolute pleasure working with you both pre-program and on-site. Your assistance pre-program played a large role in the success of the program structure and itinerary – while our client changed this structure several times (including two weeks prior to the event and on-site!), you worked with me to adjust the itinerary as needed and the end result was a successful program. Your local knowledge and relationships with vendors within South Africa was key to our success and we appreciated all of your hard work to get it done. I know that you spent long hours both preparing for this program and assisting with it on-site and we appreciated your dedication.
As you can see from the thoughtful thank you note below from our Chevron client, the guests and main client contacts truly enjoyed their South Africa and World Cup experience. While the Chevron World Cup program required a lot of work from all parties involved, the end result was fantastic.

Just a note to thank you very much for helping to organise my trip to South Africa for the World Cup.
Everything went very smoothly and I don’t know whether I enjoyed the football quite as much as I enjoyed visiting such a wonderful country. For someone who has enjoyed travelling as much as I have always done, I just can’t understand why I had never been before.

...I have been back for a couple weeks now and actually just finally feeling like the jet lag has worn off. What an amazing trip, and I want to thank you for the places and people you lined us up with. The properties were wonderful and literally every driver we had throughout our entire time, was knowledgable and very nice and helpful. I don’t think we could have been more pleased. If you would like us to send a testimonial to your boss, or anyone else at Giltedge, reiterating how pleased we were, just let me know. Thanks and now that the world cup has finished, I hope your world is getting back to normal. Best to you…

I want to personally thank you for all that you did to make our trip to South Africa so memorable. Everything was well planned and all of our needs were meticulously attended to. Your professional and sensitive outreach to us all was deeply appreciated. The accommodations were superb, The Pepper Club was an exquisite way to end our trip.
Thank you also for lunch during our day trip to the Cape of Good Hope, it was a real classy touch. Kudos for a job extremely well done. Being at such a distance we had to totally rely on your ability and you did not disappoint us..
