From start to finish my experience with Nanan Travel to book our trip to Cape Town was superb! German is ultra-responsive and was a pleasure to work with throughout. His suggestions were great and he crafted an itinerary to meet my specific needs but also made sure I didn’t miss anything. All of the tours he scheduled were perfect and the airport transfers and guides were friendly and knew the areas we visited well. We really enjoyed the hotel we stayed at and all of the restaurant recommendations that he suggested based on my culinary preferences. Even when our trip started with an unexpected delay due to a passport issue, German went above and beyond to try and help us get here. I would highly recommend Nanan Travel for your trip. He will make it the trip of a lifetime for you!

100% recomendado. Germán planeo con nosotros nuestro viaje a africa. Estuvo literal 24/7 durante todo el viaje, haciéndonos sentir seguros durante las 3 semanas que estuvimos en Africa. Los hoteles donde nos quedamos súper bonitos y súper bien ubicados, sus recomendaciones también súper! Definitivamente entendió lo que queríamos en este viaje. Los guías que nos puso todos con bastante conocimiento, muy buen inglés y amigables. Y en Capetown definitivamente Germán nos hizo sentir como locales y en casa! Ahora a planear africa parte 2 y con muchas ganas de volver a Cape Town! Thanks German!

This is the second time we have used Nanan Travel, and again we have been thrilled with our holiday. German took all of the hard work out of planning a complex holiday that involved travel to multiple countries in three weeks. Because German is based in Africa he has a local knowledge and has actually visited many of the destinations and hotels, which means he can provide first hand advice on where to visit and stay. The trip was meticulously planned by German and everything went smoothly. If we decide to go on another trip to Africa, German will be the first person we contact. We highly recommend!

Hola Germán, queríamos aprovechar por agradecerte todas las gestiones! El avión me encantó el servicio, las hostess y hasta el piloto que avisaba con tienda si iba a haber turbulencias o no. El hotel también nos pareció perfecto! El location ideal, no mucha gente (como hubiera sido el Waterfront) y las camas y almohadas comodísimas! Los tours también excelentes. El del yate recontra simpático y conversador y Gabriel lo máximo también, reclntra puntual y sabía todo! Al pobre lo hemos hecho hablar sin parar por dos días y siempre con buenísima disposición!

I was excited about my trip to Cape Town but was reluctant about going on a Safari on my own, however, German planned it all for me (and smoothly), and the whole experience has been one of the best (and for a frequent globe trotter like me) I have ever experienced! I will definitely be recommending German to anyone who has a mere interest in exploring Africa 🤎
