Comment: Daniela Ghiaroni was just wonderful in assisting with my travel plans. She answered all my questions and her personal experience at the lodges was very helpful as she explained the features of the properties. I was impressed with the service when booking and am looking forward to our stay at Tshwene Lodge.

Comment: Thank you Daniela for all your hard work in helping us book accommodation for 2 nights after our wedding. Your help, advice, guidance and friendly, professional nature is greatly appreciated. We had been in contact with other lodges for our Pre-Honeymoon as wanted something very special however, the level of service you provided was by far the best and this was a big drawing point for us in booking here. We constantly felt at ease and felt as though you really cared about what we were looking for. Thank you very very much and we are so looking forward to our stay!

Great to get such efficiency when there is so much poor service around. I hope our guests have a great visit and we’re only sorry we can’t go along this time!

Comment: My wife and I and another couple have just returned from a month in South Africa where we all had a tremendous time. One particular highlight was the stay at Welgevonden, this is confirmed by the incredible number of photos taken. A significant input by Adelene Scotchman to ensure every question regarding this adventure was answered quickly, professionally and honestly. The Guest Book entries are a very accurate account of her abilities.

Comment: Adelene Scotchman is the hidden gem of the safari travel booking! Of course she is kind and courteous, but most impressively, she is incredibly effective and speedy with her responses to inquiries and travel adjustments (which plays nicely to our Swiss sensitivities). Next time, we will START our search with Ms. Scotchman. Thank you for the perfect booking and the wonderful memories!

Even when unexpected changes in my travel plans occurred, she promptly made every effort to accommodate them, all the while maintaining a professional, yet friendly, demeanor.
