Anje had come highly recommended by a family member who had had a trip of a lifetime with his young family. We use a travel agent in the UK who always organises all our trips, so were unsure about using someone we didn’t know in another country. How wrong we were! The beauty of using Anje, is that she is extremely knowledgeable about SA and passionate about the service she delivers because she really tries to understand the clients needs and then tailor the holiday accordingly. The quality of the guides and the overall experience was exceptional. We wanted some downtime at the start of our holiday and she suggested Kareiga Game Reserve, where we stayed 5 days to make the most of it.  Anje then planned some more structured time in Cape Town, with a great wine tour in Stellenbosch and a food tour in the Bo Kaap. She even organised a surprise lunch for us; a luxury picnic with chauffeur service, fizz and flowers! Anje and BMT offers a bespoke, professional service in which she will always go the extra mile, be it goody bags on arrival,  staying in touch or her genuine warmth and enthusiasm to make sure that you have the best holiday.
