I honestly can’t say enough good things about this trip. It was life changing to say the least, and also made me realize how doable travel can be. International travel has always been something I’ve wanted to do more of, but I just had no idea how within reach it was. Thank you for putting this trip together, and for also being an incredibly knowledgeable resource. I’ll definitely be traveling with you again in the (hopefully) very near future!

“The Livalit Travel team totally nailed it with the trip to South Africa.  The attractions far exceeded my expectations, and only in retrospect can I truly appreciate how seamlessly we moved from one part of the trip to the next.  This is a testament to the pre-trip planning & organization, as well as the in-trip management of the details/curve-balls that may have come their way.  Our group was spoiled by the most seasoned and professional local guides, fantastic accommodations, ample amounts of delicious local food and beverages, and adequate time to rest, explore, or imbibe at our leisure.  This trip was an outstanding value for the money and I look forward to my next escape with Livalit Travel.”
