Askari Game Lodge

20 November 2020

We were lucky enough to be hosted at the beautiful Askari Game Lodge. The Lodge is only 1 hours drive from Johannesburg on Plumari Private Game Reserve in the Magaliesberg. If you’re looking for a relaxing bush getaway surrounded by the African wilderness, planning a unique bush wedding, or need a refreshing conference venue not far from Jo’burg or Pretoria, this is the place to be. There is a wide range of accommodation options including executive, standard and deluxe rooms which can accommodate 48 singles or 96 guests sharing. The lodge offers an array of exciting activities including Big 5 game drives, elephant touch and feed interactions, elephant walks, and hiking trails. The staff were very friendly, and the beautiful restaurant looking out onto the reserve served us a delicious three course meal. The rates are very reasonable, starting from R2100 pps, speak to me for more information. This is a lodge not to be missed, please contact me for any more info!

Dear Julia, I have just paid and booked our seats for the flight back so not to worry about that, that is done! Herc has just arrived home with all the lovely gifts that you sent us. It is absolutely amazing and so thoughtful of you. I love my jersey and it is exactly what I need for the holiday. It is beautiful, many thanks. The boys love their caps and off course Herc loves his toiletry bag and the cherry drops which surely will be devoured by all of us. Furthermore, thank you for the huge slab of Toblerone and big box of chocolates - Ferrero's - the BEST! It is a big spoil. We all feel very spoiled and very special. Thank you so much. Once again thank you for all the advice, the flight bookings, help with the accommodation, the diving, the seating and the admin. You are a star and I am sure to recommend you as a top agent! Warm regards, Helena

Exceptional Customer Experience! From the moment we established contact with our travel agent, Julia Barnett, to the very end - it has been such a pleasure. We tried 2 other travel agents and Julia was the only one who responded. The communication was seamless and professional, the travel documentation was hand-delivered well before our trip with a beautiful surprise gift for our 1st wedding anniversary. Our email correspondence was very helpful, ensuring everything was in order before our departure. There is no doubt that we will be planning our next trip with Julia and will highly recommend her to family and friends. She made our trip truly memorable and so special. Thank you a million times for organising our Anniversary trip and we look forward to the next, with your help Julia.
