The Gagnon family from Canada

Locals Know
It was so very reassuring to have the guidance of Lynne Katz as the local expert to plan our family trip to South Africa all the way from Canada.

She was pivotal in making some of the biggest decisions we needed to make. Where to stay, what safari, how long in each town, car rentals, airport transfers etc.

All items were organized clearly in a draft itinerary with prices. Payment was organized clearly and we just had to transfer a deposit and then final payment on a prearranged date.
All choices were really nice and we felt safe. Lynne even took time out of her own overseas holiday to make an emergency rebooking when our original safari lodge tragically burned down.

The car rental which Lynne arranged….everything was ready when we collected the vehicle on arrival at Cape Town International Airport ……..no problems as any queries Lynne sorted out!

Garden Route accommodation – very nice, quiet, clean comfortable rooms. A great sleep! Monkeys to welcome us for a morning coffee on our balcony overlooking golf course. Good hot breakfast.

Game Reserve – Fantastic accommodations, felt safe to leave our two teenage boys in the next cabin separate from us. Staff wonderful, friendly, helpful. Food absolutley yummy every day no fail. Ranger “Teacher” was great. We saw 4 of 5 big 5. Couldn’t find that leopard! Felt safe in their driving and trusted them with how close we got to animals. The park is doing a lot of tree clearing to rid the land of trees not native to South Africa. Did not affect our enjoyment whatsoever. Would totally go again.

Flights to Joburg – a delightful surprise to find that Lynne had sorted out our boarding passes and emailed them to us in good time so we could get through the airport swiftly.

Shuttle to guesthouse in Johannesburg (Derrick) – all prearranged by Lynne, we found our driver easily and he got us to the guest house and also back to airport.

Guesthouse B&B – located in Melville area we were happy to find it a safe and interesting artsy area. Good restaurants nearby.  Hosts were friendly and welcoming and helpful to guide us around. Staff top notch. Breakfast very good. Drinks available in main kitchen on an honorary system. Nice since they had a supply of wonderful red wine we could just grab and sit by pool and put it on our tab. We had a late flight and they let us stay longer to just relax since nobody was in our room that next night. Food wonderful everywhere this trip.

 Client feedback: Kathy Olsen, PA to the CEO, Truworths

I would like to take this opportunity to recommend the services offered by Lynne Katz from The Traveller.

Lynne has assisted me many times over the years to find excellent conference venues for Truworths. The events I arrange are on behalf of the executives and directors of the company which means precise planning and attention to detail are of vital importance. Lynne offers a service way beyond what is expected. She acts as the liaison person between the company and the establishment and has saved me an enormous amount of time and effort from my busy schedule. Lynne’s many years of experience in the travel and event planning industry also ensures that all the arrangements and logistics are planned accordingly.

Lynne and I have built up a wonderful relationship over the years and her professional approach and positive attitude makes doing business with her an absolute pleasure.

I can, without hesitation, recommend Lynne for any event or occasion, whether it is for business or leisure purposes.

Cape Grace is quite simply the best! The attention to detail is quite superb and there is no doubt that we will be rushing back there the next time we are in Cape Town.

Please pass on our thanks to Steven for his excellent guidance – we much appreciated his knowledge, insight and expertise.
Shamwari was lovely. The game sightings were excellent and we had some memorable experiences. Bayethe was very comfortable and a really authentic way of mixing luxury and safari.

Overall – quite fabulous! I’m sure that we will be back.
