AFRICA TREASURE……a REAL GEM!!
Twelve Australians ventured to South Africa using an itinerary put together by the owner/operator of Africa Treasure…and treasure she turned out to be!
Wendy, co-owner of Intitour, with many years of experience in preparing itineraries for her own clients’ travel in South America was very impressed. Nikki’s knowledge of accommodation, tours and travel possibilities in South Africa was extensive. Her company provided the fastest response to Wendy’s enquiries AND she is South African based.
We were delighted with Nikki’s excellent communication skills and the very reasonable quotation provided. So we chose to go with Africa Treasure and money was paid up front.
Nikki met our group in Johannesburg and our confidence was justified. Nikki travelled with the group for a week and was an outstanding guide, showing strong leadership, great personality, presence and charisma. She also was quietly insistent that what had been planned was what the group received.
We highly recommend Africa Treasure for any South African adventure……THANK YOU Nikki!!!

Thank you for the most awesome trip.
Namaqualand Tour 2014
Rona, South Africa
First of all, thank you so much for a very special experience. I really so enjoyed the tour, and have so many wonderful pictures in my head! I thought the way you interspersed looking at fields of flowers with going out with experts and looking at the detail of the plants was excellent. Accommodation: I thought this was excellent. I’ve tried hard to think of how it could have been improved, but onestly couldn’t come up with anything. It was varied, and that made it more interesting – not just a bland bed for the night.
Mark L, United Kingdom
The attention to detail and personal service was superb from the beginning of the planning process through the end of the tour itself. What attracted us to this tour was that it was unique and special. It truly lived up to expectations as seeing Lesotho and it’s mountains and snow were beautiful and unforgettable as were the cultural aspects of the country. It truly feels like a special experience as there as there are very few other tourists, so it provides an opportunity to explore things on your own and get to talk to locals. We spontaneously did things like stop at a sheep shearing barn to chat and watch the process. Of course things do not always go to plan such as snowy weather in the passes, but Nikki made it easy and provided alternate choices of activities and the flexibility to shift the schedule around. She also took the time to learn a bit about our personalities in order to plan an unexpected but highly enjoyable visit to a local and special art gallery in Ficksburg. Having travelled to over 90 countries for work and pleasure, we can truly say that Nikki is one of the best. Nikki is well organised, innovative informed, and very witty. We would use Africa Treasure again without hesitation and are very keen on Namibia options.

What a wonderful and most memorable experience our trip to Namaqualand was! Nikki is extremely well -organised, professional, knowledgeable and great fun. From our first meeting at the early morning pick- up point, her enthusiasm and energy infused the group and we soaked up the information she shared and the unique sights she showed us with increasing awe and wonder. Each well-planned day was packed with unexpected delights and treasures as we explored this vast and diverse land, discovering so much more than we had anticipated or expected. Along the highways Nikki entertained us with interesting facts and figures and off-the- beaten-track she found picturesque and historical places of interest often missed by others. The flowers were absolutely fabulous and our photographs offer a glimpse of their splendour. Highlights included the time spent on a private farm with a local botanical expert who revealed a wealth of secrets hidden in the fields of flowers; and coming round a dry, dusty corner to see Nababeep transformed into a golden vista bathed in afternoon sunlight. At each stop-over place the accommodation was superb and the wholesome farm-fare mouthwateringly delicious. This was a once-in-a-lifetime experience and I recommend Africa Treasure Tours, Travel & Safaris extremely highly.

Oct 2012, I offered a fantastic 10 days tour to South Africa. My duty is translate to Chinese for our guests from Beijing. It was the most unforgettable tour since I ever had because we had our guide Nikki Strassburg. Nikki, 虽然我们的相处只有短短的几天，但是你真是太棒了。你对工作的认真和热情，还有你的气魄，简直让人敬佩！我真的好像留在南非于你并肩作战，我的客人们也甚至考虑投资你的生意。You are well organized, responsible. You are definitely the right person.
Prof. Emeritus, Port Elizabeth
This is a very well-planned tour with a superb choice of visiting points taking you through ever changing landscape, fauna and flora, mountain views and including some unexpected pleasant surprises. Accommodation and catering is of a high standard and tour guides provide informative commentary as the tour proceeds through a part of the world with an interesting history. Namibia Tour

Awesome. Die beste ervaring nog ooit. Nikki was puik,die kos was van hoogstaande gehalte en die plekke waar ons tuis gegaan het, was heerlik. Die Kapenaars is baie gasvry en ons het heerlik gekuier saam met die mede toergangers. Die blomme…..ja… Die Afrikaanse FAK 268 se die volgende: Dis blomme langs die paadjies,en blomme by die wal,dis blomme net waar jy kyk,dis bontheid oweral,die mooiste blomme wink,viooltjies knik gedwee,die wind ontlok die soetste geure,en wieg die blomme see, Alle eer aan God wat die mooiste “creations” vir ons gee en ons kan net agteroor sit en asem ophou want dis ongelooflik!

In 2010, I offered an amazing garden tour to South Africa. The clients consisted of a group of Master Gardeners and friends and families from throughout the United States. It was the most fantastic tour I have ever been on. Our guide, was absolutely amazing, energetic, enthusiastic, and incredibly knowledgeable. Her energy and expertise made us fall in love with her beautiful country. Her attention to details of the tour and the client’s needs was absolutely perfect. She made the tour an amazing experience in addition to just being a tour. She is very organized and goes above and beyond to create an experience in rhythm with her wonderful country. Her tours are not a typical highway tour, but rather she delights in sharing the uniqueness of the amazing wealth of botanical highlights, wildlife highlights, restaurants, cultural highlights … absolutely everything amazing that a person on tour could desire. I highly recommend Africa Treasure as a tour organizer. Botanical Tour

David Ryman, Ireland
We are back from an amazing holiday in South Africa. Thank you for the very efficient way in which you handled the bookings. Gomo Gomo is great and I would recommend it highly. The lodge is in a most beautiful setting right on a large waterhole. There was always something to see at the waterhole. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. The staff very pleasant indeed and always ready to help. Nothing seemed to be any trouble at all. The food is great. The game viewing very good and our ranger and tracker did everything possible to ensure we saw a wide variety of game including the big five. It was great to be able to go off road to follow up on sightings. A really good lodge and very good value. Hope to be back soon and without a doubt you will be doing the bookings.

Fantastiese toer! Deur en deur die moeitewerd. Die blomme was lieflik en daar was altyd ‘n interessante kinkel in die kabel. Vervoer baie gerieflik en die diens van almal (toerleiers, -gidse ens.) was puik gewees. Baie lekker getoer – sal verseker weer so maak. Baie dankie xx Namaqualand Tour
Patel – Bhakta Group, USA
Nikki helped our group beyond her duty and we were very grateful for that type of service. We had money transfer problems due to an error made by our bank and she took personal interest to resolve the issue for us. She was also instrumental in booking our Tanzania tour by contacting another good agency in Tanzania.
Nikki and her associates, Phillip Conradie and Malcom were all very honest, sincere and helpful. They were very good with time management and knowledgeable. During our tour we had requested to have our meal plan changed and Nikki made the arrangements without any penalties. This allowed us to save money as well as have more enjoyable food throughout our trip.
As a guideline we provided an American company’s itinerary and Nikki modified it to help us save time and money and she also included additional cities and sites. We strongly recommend Nikki and her services. Everything she did for us she did with a smile and took interest in making our trip more enjoyable. 14 Day South Africa Tour

Dit was ‘n belewenis wat ons nooit sal vergeet nie. Nikki is ‘n baie goeie toerleier, wat oral sorg vir lekker verrassings. Ek en my niggie Corrie Vorster het dit baie geniet. Die feit dat ons nie so ‘n groot groep was nie, het gesorg dat ons soos een groot familie gevoel het. Dit was wonderlik om by Lita Cole meer te leer van Namakwaland se ryk blommeskat. Ek kan werklik ‘n toer saam met Nikki aanbeveel. Namaqualand Tour
