What our guests say

We took a fabulous family 2 week trip to South Africa. There were 14 of us ranging in age from 11 to 75. Ashworth Africa arranged the entire trip from three different starting points in the USA. Patrick listened to our every request and found exactly what we were looking for at each stop (and we are a tough crowd to please.) I have since recommended Ashworth Africa to friends who are frequent world travelers and they were equally happy!

Gail Evans, USA

Thanks to Ashworth Africa for organising two amazing trips for us, one with a group of friends in 2011, and another for our family with three teens in 2017. Each catered specifically to the group’s interests, with the first trip comprising safari and the Winelands, and the second filled with fun, family- oriented activities. Both trips were totally unforgettable, meticulously planned, and with excellent recommendations for lodges, hotels, restaurants, side trips and local guides. We cannot wait to return for our next African adventure!

Terrific customer service, above and beyond. The entire process from first email to end of trip was very professional and of the highest quality.

Richard Cohen, USA

Ashworth Africa has arranged five safaris for us so far, in South Africa, Botswana, Tanzania and Namibia. We appreciate their professionalism, their choice of lodges, their reactivity and concern for all the details.They have always offered us the best service possible. Guess who will organize our next safari?

Ashworth Africa is simply the best. Patrick and his team do everything to make sure your trip is perfect. From choosing the best camps based on your preferences, to reminding you to pack the right gear, to making sure a birthday cake is on hand for the special occasion. We have used Ashworth Africa to plan 2 safaris in 2 different countries; and have sent 3 other friends to them as well--and everyone has been thrilled with the level of service, detail, charm and organization. They know all the best camps in Africa and will help you plan the trip of a lifetime. Don't risk using anyone other than Ashworth Africa!

Anne Vick, Belgium

Excellent customer service and great suggestions. We have done 2 trips with Patrick -one to South Africa and one to Victoria Falls and Botswana. Both involved some complicated logistics (3 people coming from 3 continents on 3 different days for the last one) and all worked very smoothly. I can relax knowing that Patrick has handled all the arrangements and has recommended amazing places.

Jo Anne Zujewski, USA

We just returned from our most recent trip to southern Africa which Ashworth Africa planned and executed expertly! This is our third trip that Patrick Ashworth has planned for us, and the fifth trip he has planned for our friends. You could not put yourself in better hands than Ashworth Africa. No detail too small for them to make perfect. We thank them for making our "bucket list" something we want to do again, and again.

Skip & Victoria Harris, USA

Ashworth Africa has proven to provide impeccable service (I have had gone for many safaris with them - South Africa, Tanzania, Botswana). They know the best lodges and cater to our tastes and preferences. The superb service starts when you touch down and with their people on hand to receive and guide you all the way. I have never had any reservations or hesitations to recommend Ashworth to my friends when asked who to use for safaris in Africa.

Edward Young, Singapore

Patrick did an incredible job helping my husband and I plan our honeymoon safari. Everything about this trip went smoothly and the lodge was more amazing than we could have imagined! Everything was taken care of for us; all we had to do was enjoy the wonderful experience. Patrick was quick to respond to our emails and was able to book us the trip of a lifetime at a very reasonable price. I will definitely be booking my next safari with Ashworth Africa!

Brent & Natalie Reilly, USA

After a 10 year absence from Africa, I cannot praise/ thank Patrick enough for all he has done for us! We have had a fantastic time, both in Cape Town, site seeing, wine tasting and enjoying city life and we also a brilliant time at Tswalu Kalahari. None of which would have been possible without Patrick’s attention to detail.

Hal McCallum, UK

All arrangements were top notch. I will happily recommend Ashworth Africa to friends and will use them again for future visits! It was an unforgettable trip.

Sami & Neelo Ahmed, USA

Andrea listened carefully and delivered all the experiences we hoped to have in our six weeks of travel. We are extremely satisfied with our trip and wish we could live every minute again.

Sally Arnold, USA

Patrick made our honeymoon incredibly special for us. It was our first time to Africa, and it was a fantastic introduction. There were surprises at every turn, and all logistics were perfectly coordinated. He was incredibly responsive throughout the process, and jumped through hoops for us. We would highly recommend him!

Jon & Jennifer Gold, USA

Patrick put together our trip of a lifetime to South Africa. Every step of the journey, from being met as we exited the plane in Cape Town to our final departure home was carefully thought out and expertly taken care of. The itinerary was amazing with remarkable locations (South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe), private tour guides, beautiful lodges, and fantastic game drives. He worked within our budget and gave us a first class vacation. I highly recommend Ashworth Africa Safaris and hope to work with him again for a future trip to Africa.

Paul & Paula Brynen, USA

Patrick arranged all our African trips (I’m on my 4th trip now). My trip to Rwanda for gorilla trekking was unbelievable.The lodges were great and the gorilla trekking was out of this world! Patrick never failed to deliver the best.

James Cheng, Singapore

The company is efficient, caring and completely professional. The trips they book are fantastic with all pickups and transfers handled without flaw. Their knowledge of game parks and facilities is unmatched. I heartily recommend Ashworth Africa for planning a trip to Africa.

Bob Fenyo, USA

We couldn't be more pleased with Ashworth Africa. Email responses were immediate and very helpful. The tour itself unfolded perfectly with no travel anxiety whatsoever. Everywhere we went, all experiences and all personnel were wonderful without exception.

Peter Mildner, Papua New Guinea

Patrick Ashworth has organised 7 trips for my wife and me in southern Africa. His attention to detail has always ensured that we have enjoyed trouble-free holidays in some wonderful locations in several different countries - it is reassuring to have a perfectionist on one's side. We have recommended him to a number of friends, with only positive results.

Jim & Felicity Chambers, UK

Ashworth Africa made my trip to South Africa the experience of a lifetime. The arrangements precisely matched my specifications and were executed flawlessly from the moment we landed in Cape Town until we left South Africa to journey home. The trip could not have been more perfect.

Jeanne Maxbauer, USA

The whole trip was very professionally organised with excellent and welcoming lodges, very knowledgeable guides and great game viewing. We would have no hesitation in recommending Ashworth Africa to anyone who wants a professionally organised holiday in Africa.
