Reviews and Testimonials

  • The trip that we arranged with Compass Odyssey more than lived up to our expectations. Darren was incredibly knowledgable, friendly, responsive and helpful. He took our every wish and made it his command. The service was impeccable. Everything went flawlessly, from being met at the airports or camps, to transportation, to having amazing local guides. The Chobe National Park safaris provided both an experienced overland and on the Chobe river with a very knowledgable guide. The trip to Zimbabwe was very memorable even though the falls were low at the time of year we visited. The arranged guides were so accommodating and knowledgable and helpful. The places we stayed were all comfortable and well located. Darren made car hire arrangements for us for our trip along the Garden Route which was one of the highlights of the trip. Nature’s Valley is not to be missed, in our estimation. Our accommodations were like being in a tree house and very close to a beach and a nice restaurant. Having Darren’s help made arranging the trip to Africa very very easy for us.
    I cannot recommend Compass Odyssey highly enough.

  • This was not a safari tour, but a first experience of all the beautiful sights Cape Town has to offer. The guest house (Parker’s Cottage) where I stayed was excellent, their breakfast offer was outstanding with various choices of cooked breakfast, fresh juices and amazing and tasty fresh fruit with granola. The local guide cum driver was knowledgeable and provided a lot of insight on South African history and politics.
