Client testimonials

Botswana & South Africa

Best trip ever to Africa. C&L know the camps and find out what you like. They get right all the little details that make trips hassle-free.

South Africa, Namibia and Zambia

So much made this experience great. It was the holiday of a lifetime and we wouldn’t have known how to choose the different elements without the expertise of Cazenove and Loyd. Every last detail was thought about, and we were treated especially well because our various African hosts enjoy working with Cazenove and Loyd. Not cheap but worth every penny!

I would recommend this unconditionally.

The itinerary Claire planned was perfect. The lodges were all outstanding in comfort and service. Our Ultimate guide was superb – extremely knowledgeable in all areas, excellent driver and a pleasure to be with for 10 days. We were obliged to cancel our tour last year; Claire rebooked everything for this year, avoiding cancellation fees.
