We got in touch with Suzanne from Vayeni for organizing our honeymoon, 4 weeks in Africa. We had certain wishes, but also a certain budget. Vayeni went the extra mile to give us a one in a lifetime experience. People warned us that Africa is Africa and you should be prepared that anything could potentially go wrong. However, nothing went wrong. All was perfect. It was a big organisation since we travelled from lodge to lodge in various countries. Everything was arranged top notch!!! All the camps knew we were coming, the were so well prepared by Vayeni. And the most difficult part, transport and logistics between the various countries and lodges was super organised. We were amazed by everything they arranged and would go back to do business with them in an instant. If you are looking for a travel experience without any worries, go through Vayeni. Would have not done one thing different.

For my birthday my mom and I decided to take a short trip to Botswana, do a half-day safari tour and then visit Victoria Falls. It was difficult trying to plan the trip on my own, so I reached out to Vayeni and spoke with Mel who helped plan the entire trip. Not only did we finally see lions on our safari, but we actually had a chance to pet and walk with them at the Lion Encounter, followed by the private Elephant Encounter, and a evening luxury cruise on the Zambezi River. What a fabulous experience!! I cannot express enough the amazing time we had due to her insight, coordination and flexibility. Our experience is one that we will remember fondly for a lifetime, and the hospitality of the staff was wonderful. Many, many thanks, and I would strongly recommend this company to anyone interested in traveling there.

As background, I'm a solo traveller and this was my first trip to Africa. I had a few places I really wanted to visit and a few other potential add-ons. I put my requirements out to quite a few safari companies from this website and Vayeni came back with the best proposition. It was well presented and immediately gave me a flavour of the accommodation and the way the holiday would flow. They suggested I also visit Matopos in Zimbabwe, which I had never considered as part of my own thinking. It turned out to be my favourite stop of the trip, so was a great recommendation. The other places they suggested for me were also spot on. They took my fairly tight budget and identified where I could get a bit of affordable luxury on the holiday and where I could compromise and stay in somewhere cheaper but still comfortable and good quality. My instinct is that Vayeni were able to access some pricing and deals that I might not have been able to on my own. As it was my first trip to Africa, I had quite a few questions about how it would all work. Vayeni were very patient in answering these but next time round I would probably just have a few skype calls instead of sending e-mails back and forth. So I would advise you just to pick up the phone or skype if you have any questions. All in all, I loved Zimbabwe and would encourage you to go. And if you do, I would not hesitate to recommend Vayeni to arrange it for you.
