‘Here's My Card provide a 5 star service’ Back to top

‘Magical, memorable, marvellous and meticulously planned. We had such a fabulous trip to South Africa. One week in The Cape taking in Cape Town, Hermanus and whale watching and the Winelands and the second week on safari in KwaZulu Natal.

We cannot thank and praise Kerry enough for putting together the most wonderful & spectacular trip. If you want the best then that is what Here's My Card deliver in terms of service and a professional approach with a personal touch. Their attention to detail is second to none and there were lots of little 'here's my card' touches along the way that were hugely appreciated and made the difference. They listen to what you are wanting to get out of your trip and take the time and trouble to get it spot on - taking on board the things you like and dislike and work with you to deliver an amazing trip. Nothing is too much trouble and everything from hotel bookings, lunch and dinner reservations to additional excursions, drivers/guides and meet and greets, tickets for shows etc is seamlessly taken care of - all you need to do is relax and enjoy a perfectly planned trip.

Here's My Card provides a 5 star service and we cannot recommend them highly enough. They will be our first and only stop for future trips. Well done Kerry and Clare and a huge and heartfelt thank you - it was a delight to work with you.’

‘The attention to detail is second to none’ Back to top

‘This was our first holiday to South Africa and Kerry and Clare have made sure it will not be our last. Starting at The More Quarters Hotel in Cape Town where we were given our "bible" to dropping the car back in Port Elizabeth two weeks later the whole operation was amazing. The "bible" is your personalised itinerary, beautifully printed in a zebra print book, also a gorgeous souvenir.

The attention to detail is second to none. The staff in every property were very attentive, friendly and helpful. Kerry and Clare had recommended restaurants to visit, definitely give the Harbour House in Kalk Bay and the Pot Luck Club a-go. We also ate at La Colombe in Constantia on my birthday, what a fabulous place. Angala Hotel in the winelands was a tranquil haven and again lunch time bookings had been made for two days in different vineyards. Dinner at Angala is not too be missed. The safari at Kwandwe was the icing on the cake. What an amazing place, we saw 4 of the Big 5. Our tracker and driver were very knowledgeable and the staff in The Great River Lodge made this a fantastic end to a brilliant holiday.

None of this would have been possible without the assistance of Kerry and Clare who tailor made a prefect holiday for us and they certainly know who to make a birthday last longer than a week!!’

‘Fabulous itinerary’ Back to top

‘We had an amazing safari in Kenya that exceeded each and every expectation. We stayed in four camps and feel grateful we were able to experience the lodges, the wildlife, the topography and the local culture at each, as the different properties all have a unique, individual personality and feel. It was a truly luxurious experience set amongst exquisite wildlife and scenery. We hope to come back again and bring our two young children. Thank you, Here's My Card, for the fabulous itinerary!’

‘Outstanding holiday’ Back to top

‘We had an outstanding holiday with friends in South Africa, celebrating two special birthdays in our group of four. From our arrival in Cape Town to departure from Johannesburg all the arrangements made by ‘Here’s my card’ worked perfectly. The combination of whale watching in Hermanus, wine tasting around Franschhoek and 5 days on safari at Phinda worked brilliantly. The ‘little surprises’ and attention to detail were much appreciated. We were delighted with the accommodation, activities, places to dine out and transport arrangements made on our behalf as these fitted so well with our requirements as discussed when planning the holiday. The memories will last a lifetime and we will have no hesitation in recommending ‘Here’s my card’ to family and friends.

Thanks again for all your help.’

‘Exceptional service of Here’s My Card’ Back to top

‘During our Cape Town wedding in 2014 we witnessed the exceptional service of Here’s My Card. The majority of our guests were from overseas and used the wedding trip as an opportunity to explore South Africa. On reflection, Kerry and Clare were intrinsic to the overall smooth running of the wedding week - personably handling all accommodation and travel queries. They genuinely enhanced our guest’s experience - implementing bespoke trips to the Bush, Winelands and Garden Route to showcase the best of South Africa in-line with each guest’s pace and budget.

In July 2015 we experienced first-hand the chic and slick Here’s My Card operation, when they created our honeymoon itinerary to North Island, Seychelles. From the beautiful literature about the trip to the exquisite destination and seamless travel arrangements - flight recommendations, boat and helicopter transfers - Kerry and Clare’s impeccable taste is unsurpassed. Moreover they master the rare art of balancing attention to precise detail and a ‘hands-on’ focus on client’s comfort.

Here’s my card have been integral to our two most treasured milestones. Thank you girls for making our wedding day and honeymoon more special than words will permit.’

‘Delightful to deal with’ Back to top

‘I recently used the wonderful services of ‘Here's my Card’ travel consultancy for our family trip in South Africa. Our party consisted of 4 adults and two children (aged 6 & 8 months) Kerry and Clare were delightful to deal with. They provided us with great service leading up to the booking as well as some local recommendations that we found perfect for our family dynamic. Our hotel in Cape Town was perfectly located and we ended on a Big 5 safari, which was outstanding.

Thanks again for your help’

‘Incredible adventure’ Back to top

‘Thank you so much for helping plan and select such an incredible adventure for us! I told you I wanted something special for Renee’s birthday, and you found the perfect match!

Ngala Tented Camp was a superb suggestion, and beautiful reserve! The extra attention from the staff as awesome! Thanks you girls! The highlight was having a Bush Breakfast in the Timbavati, with wild animals all around us!

Can’t believe we saw all the big 5 in the first 2 game drives! Leopard cubs, wild dog pups, baby hippo’s - was something to behold! Thanks again for all your help! And great suggestions! Looking forward to the next trip we plan!’

‘Unforgettable holiday’ Back to top

‘We spent 17 amazing nights travelling along the Garden Route in South Africa, from Cape Town to a fantastic Safari lodge in the Eastern Cape.

It was an absolute pleasure dealing with Here's My Card - they were very patient with all our questions and constant changes to our itinerary throughout the whole organisational process! The bespoke, top quality printed itinerary became our bible on our trip and they made sure that every detail was catered for. All the recommendations and suggestions given by the girls turned out to be nothing but outstanding. An unforgettable holiday and we will certainly be recommending Here's My Card to all our friends.

We'll definitely be in touch again next time we head to SA!’

‘Truly sensational’ Back to top

‘Our trip was truly sensational! We loved SA and all the experiences and places we visited. It was a trip of a lifetime for us! We can’t thank you enough for arranging it - the book was our BIBLE and so helpful with suggestions and finer details. It was amusing to look over at another table at breakfast at Angala to see another group reading the zebra print bible too!

Sea Five hotel in Camps Bay was a great place to start our trip and then the added surprise of dinner booked at Potluck was amazing. Then on to the Winelands - Angala an incredible Zen like place and the food and service was superb, the attention to detail here was on another level. They came and sang Happy birthday to Matt at breakfast which was so special, thank you so much for arranging that with them. Then on to Hermanus and the South right suite! A lovely beach hotel after the Winelands. On to Plettenberg & we stayed in a lovely hotel. Lastly, we ended on a first class safari at Kwandwe! I can’t say anything more that completely fantastic on every level.’

‘Experience of a lifetime’ Back to top

‘We spent 10 days in March at both Dulini Safari Lodge and Marataba Luxury Tented Camp. Both reserves were recommended by Kerry & Clare who arranged everything including all internal transfers (planes and cars) – all we had to do was get to Johannesburg.

We ran out of superlatives – the accommodation in both lodges was superb, with fabulous food and service. We shall never forget sitting in the plunge pool with eleven elephants – including a baby days old – eating leaves and grass 50 yards away. Or the leopard loping down the road. Or three baby lions joining in the feast provided by a kudu killed the night before by the lioness. Or standing very quietly – we did four days on walking safaris in Marataba – watching two slightly edgy rhinos less than 100 yards away. Or the hippos coming out of the water at dusk. Or the giraffe bending to drink. Sunrises and sunsets. The fantastic Waterberg mountains. Every day we said – there can’t be anything else – but there always was. An experience of a lifetime.’

‘Wonderful family adventure’ Back to top

‘Our 3rd trip with Here’s My Card was yet another wonderful family adventure for the Dineen's and thank you so much for orchestrating it all. We loved the difference in landscape and mood between Kalahari, Tswalu and Kruger, Londolozi. Both facilities were excellent, though I have to say our favourite is Londolozi overall for approach, service, professionalism while still being warm. The Saxon was beautiful; such a short stay seemed a shame not to enjoy the amenities. The rooms were beyond huge... as was the case as Pioneer Camp. We could have easily fit into one lodge there for sure & extended the stay a couple of days instead...next time. The guides and trackers in both locations were excellent as was the rest of the staff. Our fondness for the region continues to grow.’

‘Exceptional and thorough’ Back to top

‘A trip to south Africa can be ordinary or extraordinary. Thanks to the competent assistance of Clare and Kerry, of Here’s My Card, our itinerary could not have been more spectacular. We loved each place we stayed and had diverse experiences in each. Our transport from place to place was seamless thanks to attention to detail. Their familiarity with the properties made it possible to have specific rooms; in particular, the best room at Birkenhead.

The hard copy of the detailed itinerary that met us at our hotel in Johannesburg, is the most exceptional, thorough and attractive document I have ever received from any travel agent.

Beyond all else, we were able to have the most incredible time in Cape Town because restaurants were reserved, a guided tour of the botanical gardens was scheduled, and we were able to spend time with our friends who were available to eat, drink, and laugh together.

We look forward to returning. With gratitude and love.’

‘Exceptional experience’ Back to top

‘Having previously had Here's my Card put together great itineraries for us, we knew we would be in good hands this time round. Our brief was for 'a special island experience' and when HMC recommended North Island in the Seychelles, it took only a quick visit to North Island's website for us to press green for go. From start to finish it was an exceptional experience that put our previous island holidays (with the possible exception of Bedarra Island on the Great Barrier Reef) into a lower league.

North Island's maxim of 'anything, anywhere, anytime' proved to be no idle promise - with service standards, cuisine and overall staff friendliness being quite exceptional. Guests are literally able to design their own day on North, although their private villa accommodation offers much temptation to just chill out 'at home'.

An island paradise for sure and once again we are extremely grateful to Here's my Card for finding another gem for us, whilst placing everything in a matchless itinerary. Well done once again HMC - you are the gold standard to which your competitors should aspire.’

‘Amazing service’ Back to top

‘This was our 4th trip with Here’s my Card and we are already working out when we can do trip number 5. We might even be back this year!

This time, we visited the wonderful Camps Bay, Hermanus and the Eastern Cape all highlights. But we must mention The Great Fish River Lodge at the Kwandwe Game Reserve, some of the most stunning scenery we have ever seen & we had some very special animal sightings here. We have been lucky enough to do this 4 times and each time the lodges and locations booked for us by Clare and Kerry have made the experience unique and etched forever in our memories. We ended our trip in Franschhoek and Stellenbosch the scenery here takes your breath away.

Southern Africa now holds so many special memories for us, we feel fortunate to have found such an amazing service. This trip will never be forgotten and we love recommending Here’s My Card when talking to other travellers.

There is so much to see and if you can why not do it in style, fall in love with this beautiful continent as we have, you will not be disappointed.’

‘Holiday of a lifetime’ Back to top

‘This was, without a doubt, a holiday of a lifetime! And we couldn't have done it without Here’s My Card’s advice, organisation and dedication. They had thought about absolutely everything and presented all the 'need to know' beautifully in our itinerary, which meant that all we had to do was sit back and enjoy the ride!

The girls really took the time to listen to what kind of restaurants, hotels and experiences we wanted and her recommendations were spot on. Our favourite meal was the Butchers Shop & Grill in Cape Town, which we would never have found if it wasn't for Here's My Card. We were upgraded to a suite at Kapama Karula, which was totally unexpected and proved spectacular. We saw all of the big 5 within 24 hours, as well as our informed ranger teaching us about other flaura and fauna in the park. We didn't want to leave!

So thanks again for all your efforts to make this such a memorable trip for us. We will definitely be recommending you to anyone going to South Africa.’

‘Dear Kerry and Clare, thanks so much for a superb trip. Beautifully co-ordinated to a very high standard as always. Great properties; great experiences! This is our 4th trip to South Africa organised by Here's My Card and we can't wait until our 5th trip. Thanks again for all your hard work on our behalf.

Both Birkenhead House in Hermanus & La Residence in Franschhoek were tremendous as always. Kensington Place in Cape Town has a lovely atmosphere with great staff & still is our home from home!

It was an amazing trip. So thanks again girls.’

‘Beyond memorable’ Back to top

‘Thank you to Kerry & Clare for making our honeymoon beyond memorable. This is a prime example of why using a boutique organisation like, ‘Here’s My Card as they head and shoulders above a main stream holiday company. Rather than just offer you "The honeymoon package" they took to time to understand "us" what we liked and didn’t like and made suggestions accordingly.

The attention to detail was incredible from the locations, accommodation, restaurant recommendations, day trips - it's something we will cherish for a long time and highly recommend using them. We will definitely be back soon as we really loved it so thank you again once again.’

‘Fantastic job’ Back to top

‘What a fantastic job you did arranging our holiday! Everywhere we went we met with courtesy and warm welcomes – from the drivers to the staff that worked in the hotels and lodge in Sabi Sands, we felt like we were old friends. Each place was better than the last and the safari, well, it could not have been improved on. Between us we have been on a lot of special holidays, and South Africa rates up in the top rank thanks to you and the places you booked.

Your planning and execution of the trip was so smooth and everything was planned beautifully and we can't say enough how well thought out the accommodation, restaurants, trips and transfers were. Nothing was left to chance. It suited us perfectly, as neither of us like these big "soul-less hotels." We will certainly be recommending you to anyone we know planning a trip to SA. (including ourselves!!!). Thank you once again.’

‘Perfect organisation’ Back to top

‘Before we leave Londolozi (we are very sad to leave...), we would love to thank you for the wonderful trip. Londolozi was terrific, they upgraded us from Tree Camp to Granite Suite and we loved everything about this place. It’s beautiful, comfortable and food & service is great. But of course the best are the game drives... even if I had this experience already....but still it was something special and unforgettable for both of us!

We are seriously thinking about going next winter to Etosha Pan and Okavango Delta...I am sure you know where to send us, right? So thanks again for the wonderful organisation, every place was beautiful and special. We enjoyed our trip very much and your organisation was perfect. Every single place was special, we loved our room and food at Birkenhead House, we appreciated the lovely staff of Sea Five Hotel, we enjoyed walking around the gardens of Babylonstoren and of course we will never forget our Safari at Londolozi. Just a perfect vacation in every way!’

‘Another fantastic trip organised by ‘Here’s My Card’. This third trip which incorporated a wonderful beach and sightseeing holiday with an awesome game reserve in Botswana. Our family holiday started with Christmas in Plettenberg Bay at a really wonderful private villa. Perfect for the children as there is lots of space & they spent most of the time in the pool. Then onto incredible Botswana for some Big 5 Action!! Breath-taking scenery & incredible game viewings with our great tracker & ranger team! We ended with time in Hermanus – for beach & golf & despite the 3 centre holiday it all worked seamlessly without a single hitch…….that’s why we keep coming back!‘

‘Everything we hoped for & more...’ Back to top

‘Fiona and I are still on a massive high after the wedding....and especially our honeymoon!!

We normally like to do our own thing when we go overseas and have been known to turn up in a new country without even making accommodation plans. However, leaving most of the arrangements to you was a masterstroke and our honeymoon would just not have been the same had we tried to arrange it ourselves. From the first day when you met us at the airport (a nice touch by the way!) until our safari experience at the end of our trip we had a really amazing time. We really fell in love with your country! The food, the wine, the scenery, Cape Town, Franschhoek, Hermanus and especially Dulini! It was a fantastic couple of weeks.

In short, our South African experience was everything we hoped for and more. We would not hesitate in recommending you to our friends and family.'

‘Best holiday planners’ Back to top

‘This was our first trip to South Africa and we sought the help of Here's my Card in planning an itinerary to include Cape Town, the Garden Route and a Game Reserve. We gave the girls an outline of the type of accommodation we required, what we would like to see and a ball-park budget and we were absolutely delighted with her itinerary.

The accommodation throughout the holiday was superb and the suggested activities were spot-on. Here's my Card not only organised perfect accommodation, car hire and activities schedule, but also provided comprehensive information and contact details to cover all eventualities throughout our visit, which enabled us to relax and thoroughly enjoy our adventure. We have travelled extensively throughout the world and have regularly used bespoke tailor-made agencies and can say, without any hesitation, that the Here's my Card team stand out as the best holiday planners we have come across.

Thank you so much Kerry & Clare! It was truly a wonderful holiday and we really enjoyed meeting you too.’

‘Honeymoon of our dreams’ Back to top

‘Thank you so much Clare & Kerry for organising the honeymoon of our dreams. From your help putting together the ideal itinerary and your advice about when best to go, to recommending & reserving the most amazing restaurants we could not have asked for anything more. All the accommodation was incredible - we loved the ‘Under Canvas’ camp although anything with an en suite bathroom is way beyond our usual camping experiences. The refurbished Sandibe lodge is just another level of luxury and the people at Xaranna went out of their way to make our stay extra special. Our private dinner under the stars with the resident hippos providing the soundtrack is something we will never forget.

Cape Town and the Winelands made for a perfect end to our trip – we could have stayed at Babylonstoren forever. We were sad not to get to the top of Table Mountain but glad that it gives us an excuse to go back, not that any excuse is needed. Looking forward to the anniversary trip already.'

‘Mind blowing’ Back to top

'Kerry & Clare created another mind blowing trip for us. Botswana is a stunning country and we knew the camps were going to be 5*, but the 3 camps we visited were above and beyond what we were expecting. The trip was seamless and absolute joy which some breath taking and "once in a lifetime" sights. A good mixture of land & water based camps allowed us to experience more.

We transferred to Camps Bay after 9 nights in Botswana to a penthouse apartment with stunning views. We'd been to another villa in May which was stunning, and this villa matched up to our now high standards in camps bay villas! What a wonderful position to be in...! There was lots of space and the sunsets were stunning. A great base for Cape Town.

Another wonderful, personal holiday from Here's My Card. Until the next time ladies.....’

Kerry and Clare gave us a detailed shortlist according to our brief, and then chose one of them for us because we were still undecided! Their choice was spot-on.

The hotel was luxurious with a choice of beaches, pools and restaurants. We really enjoyed the selection of beaches and pools, the accommodation was great, food and wine selection excellent and a lovely Spa. All the travel arrangements went smoothly. The itinerary was detailed with in depth information on Mauritius, the hotel and the available sight-seeing trips. We had a wonderful, relaxed holiday.

‘WOW….what an amazing holiday!!!’ Back to top

‘We have just returned from the most spectacular experience planned with the utmost care and attention to detail. Kerry and Clare really interpreted our brief for a family holiday for my husband and I with our three girls in South Africa - featuring Cape Town, the coast, the wine regions and a spectacular safari. Accommodation and locations were all suggested by Kerry after a very brief conversation with me - and they all totally hit the spot…balancing luxury/location and something a little bit special!

From the moment we arrived in our first destination in Camps Bay and read the notes for our two week holiday we knew we were in for a real treat - the notes were beautifully presented and became our ‘bible' for our stay helping us navigate through the various locations with no stress - knowing everything was booked or available as we needed it. We would never have found the restaurants - and each one was different and showcased another aspect of the areas we were staying in. The ‘bible’ is now a fabulous memento of our two week stay in the Cape! At each destination the local team had been briefed by Kerry and Clare about our trip and where we were on our journey. It was a holiday for us all….and importantly for us the girls were really taken care of.

From the wonderful views from the top of Table Mountain, eating in some magical Cape Town restaurants, to watching whales basking in the bay from our room at Hermanus, then leaving the girls to make bread in the kitchen at Babylonstoren whilst we enjoyed a tour of the wine cellar (as well as tasting!). However the finale at Lion Sands took our breath away. We were treated to most of the Big 5 on every game drive - up close and personal - with expertise from our Ranger and Tracker who also awakened an interest in the most amazing birds in the area. We even had elephants who tried to join us all for dinner one evening!!

Thank you so much for the experience - we are enjoying the holiday again as we sift through our many photographs - The Rylatt Family xx'

'We had such an incredible time!! Truly, the trip of a lifetime. We are both bummed to be back to reality and miss being surrounded by elephants and going on game drives and hiking Table Mountain!

I can't tell you how amazing Botswana was. Really, no words can do it justice. And Sandibe in particular was like a dream. Nothing compares! We were so so sad to leave! We got incredibly lucky and saw so many amazing animals, and we already miss game drives and stops for tea and just generally seeing elephants everywhere.

You guys really went above and beyond with everything and we've been so well taken care of. Thank you so much again for everything. We will most definitely call on you guys to plan our return trip!! I wish you guys planned trips all over the world cause we would use you for everything!'

I surprised Rita on this day with our destination, and it was "spot-on" right choice! She really loved it, so already much 'pre-joy' before actually leaving.

The trip you have set out for us, has in one word been fantastic. All details were taken care of, and we have not encountered any problems, whatsoever. People both in the hotels and at the activities knew about our honeymoon, were well-informed, and have treated us very nicely with little surprises, attentions, etc.

The mix between rest, travel and activities was well-balanced. The activities were a good mix of everything, and all nice to do; Lauren and Keith are not only good guides, but both lovely people too. You apparently know the best places to eat, because many people have confirmed the selection of restaurants; all were very good to excellent (stunning view while lunching at La Graff). Both La Residence and Birkenhead Villa were, although very different, of a special class indeed. This type of personal service at this level in such stylish and beautiful surroundings are indeed very "honeymoon"-worthy....

So once again, thank you for making our honeymoon such an amazing experience. You have done an outstanding job!'

‘Melita and I had the most wonderful holiday, both in the Cape and at Marataba Lodge, and we are very grateful to you for making it all happen. Dealing with ‘Here’s My Card’ was a pleasure from start to finish, and, particularly because we gave you little time to prepare an itinerary, I appreciate your quick response in discerning and delivering exactly what we were seeking.

Both hotels were stunning in different ways, but they shared outstanding, courteous, and attentive staff; luxurious, comfortable, and understated rooms; and absolutely perfect locations. Both exceeded our expectations. When it came to Marataba: "The staff is extraordinary, the facilities outstanding, the views spectacular, and the game-watching unparalleled. My three days were among the best I have ever enjoyed, and I have been blessed with many great days.", and, substituting "city-watching" for "game-watching", the same applies to the Cape Cadogan. Both hotels welcomed us in such a way that we immediately felt like each place was "ours".

I have already recommended you to two of my closest friends who are separately planning trips to SA!’

The natural simplicity is the core thread throughout, from the stunning rooms, pristine grounds, hand-picked ingredients at the restaurant to the friendly and attentive service.

‘After planning our dream honeymoon last year in South Africa, this year we had to return to Africa with Here's My Card for another taste of the 5-star adventure that Clare and Kerry work so hard to create. This time we would be heading to back to South Africa to return to our favourite spots in Cape Town and the wine country and journeying to Namibia for a taste of the wild.

Clare and Kerry once again outdid themselves and gave us a truly exceptional and unique experience across both countries. Every step of the way we had spectacular accommodations. In Namibia, Clare and Kerry always went the extra mile to insure we were treated exceptionally and given access to explore the rugged and beautiful landscapes independently with the most skilled guides from each lodge. We were also given fabulous extras like private dinners and a sunrise balloon ride over the desert.

We cannot recommend the white glove treatment of Clare and Kerry to enough of our friends and family. In fact, we've been so thrilled we are bringing our families back with us for our next trip we are already planning with Here's My Card for our third African visit!’

‘Perfectly executed’ Back to top

‘We cannot thank you enough for all that you did to make our trip so amazing. I can't say enough great things about all that you did - we wish you could plan all our trips!!

This was hands down the greatest vacation we have ever taken. From start to finish every detail was thoughtfully planned, carefully coordinated, and perfectly executed. You knew exactly what activities we would enjoy, which accommodations suited us and where to find the perfect food and wine!

The thought of planning a two week trip to Africa was daunting and overwhelming, but you made it easy and painless - like it magically came together.

I had said this was a once in a lifetime trip, but we am now confident we will be back again soon, and am looking forward to what you plan for the next trip!!’

‘Perfect and special honeymoon’ Back to top

‘Manuela and I cannot thank you enough for all the work that went into making our honeymoon so perfect and special. Everything, from the experience as a whole to the slightest of details, went smoothly and perfectly well. We will remember it forever.

Cape Town is simply amazing & our hotel was in a great location & we had a beautiful room. Our winelands hotel was unbelievably gorgeous and the staff so nice. Classy in all respects, it also felt like we were not in a hotel as such. The food in wine country, just like you mentioned, was extremely good value for a level of quality that is only found in few places around the world. The European influence makes Franschhoek restaurants some of the best we´ve ever eaten at. Chic and unpretentious ambience with food so simple yet so tasteful… just like we like it. We each gained 5 pounds at least!! Our safari lodge is probably the best property of the whole trip. We couldn’t believe our eyes when we got there. The safari experience, the staff, the rustic understated luxury, and the property with the most soul of all throughout the trip. Everything had a personal touch and a level of detail which we absolutely loved.

Once again, thank you so much.’

‘Incredible honeymoon’ Back to top

‘I just wanted to send you a note of huge huge thanks for our incredible honeymoon. Ben and I had the most amazing time away, we fell in love with South Africa too, so will definitely be back. Our accommodation was perfection from start to finish, and each hotel blew us away! We couldn’t have wished for better. All of your restaurant suggestions were fantastic, as were our day trips. We particularly loved our hike up Table Mountain & our private guide, was fantastic. Our safari experience was just amazing – the safari team really made it such a special trip and we were very sad to have to leave.

Ben and I will be back soon hopefully, as we have the bug!’

‘Didn’t disappoint’ Back to top

‘As seasoned Cape Town visitors, finding accommodation for the 7 of us with a wide ranging age spectrum, that was both different and jaw dropping, was a challenge that Kerry & Clare at Here’s My Card accepted with relish! And they didn’t disappoint us.

Kerry & Clare found an exquisite villa in Camps Bay that had enough space to ensure that we could all have a great holiday; cosy yet lots of space. And the views at sunset ... well, wow ... I would sell all my earthy belongings to visit again to watch that sun set. Before we arrived, Kerry & Clare gave us lots of ideas of what to do in the area and booked some restaurants; they even arranged some shopping to be in the fridge which was marvellous after a long journey.

We have already booked another holiday with Here’s My Card, and that is a testament to the experience we had ... thanks Girls once again.’

‘We have returned to Texas, and still enjoying the memories of South Africa. We have been on many safaris, so this was our chance to see another side of your beautiful country. I contacted you late, as it was a last minute trip. You did, what I thought was, impossible! You were able to book every hotel and restaurant I had requested. I know that wasn't an easy fete, as being the Easter Holiday.

I appreciate your friendliness, promptness, and professionalism. Thank you again for the service you provided for us to be accompanied from our airline gate and taken promptly through immigration. There was a car to take us to a paradise of a hotel in Johannesburg. Champagne was waiting in the room, with you providing an itinerary, (or should I say book!) of our next 10 days. Such detail....The hotel you recommended in Cape Town was so gracious. It was a beautiful place to spend Easter, and thank you for arranging the upgraded room. Totally unexpected, but appreciated.

Our family was so taken with the wine country. The winery was the most glorious place I have ever stayed. I still think of it daily. You totally tuned into our personalities and what we would enjoy. We had a fabulous trip & everything you planned was perfect so thank you.’

‘Great Memories’ Back to top

‘Thank you so much Clare & Kerry for organising such a wonderful trip to South Africa. We had the most amazing family holiday and all the children loved the whole experience. The itinerary was perfect - Cape Town, particularly Constantia was beautiful and we really enjoyed our time there. The safari lodge was far better than we could have ever expected and our youngest daughter (aged 2) came out on every game drive with us. Our ranger was fantastic and he was brilliant with the children and we really enjoyed his company too! Plettenberg Bay was beautiful and very relaxing, and Franschhoek was a great place to enjoy the views, wine, food and shopping.

Thank you so much once again; we had such a wonderful time in beautiful South Africa. Great memories!’

'Memorable experience’ Back to top

'When we visited South Africa in 2011 we said we’d be back…well we have returned and our second experience was just as memorable as our first visit ! Clare and Kerry helped us plan another fantastic itinerary which took us from Cape Town to the Kruger over a stunning two week journey. The variety and quality of everywhere we stayed en route was simply outstanding and we enjoyed some fantastic excursions, lunches and dinners. We travelled with our good friends Jeremy and Dawn who were visiting South Africa for the first time and who were also ‘blown away’ by this land of variety, colour and exuberance. It was also great to finally meet up with Clare in Cape Town after all the long distance planning beforehand!

Yes…our minds are already thinking of our next visit to this wonderful continent – we can’t wait to explore Africa some more.

Thank you Clare and Kerry for helping make our trip such a memorable experience.'

‘Michelle and I truly had an unforgettable time. It was such an incredible experience. Firstly, we want to thank you for all of your recommendations and your efforts in coordinating our itinerary. I've travelled around the world without ever using a travel agent, but I'm so glad that we were referred to you. You certainly made our trip what it was. You made things simple and easy.

We absolutely loved all four of the properties that we stayed at. Personally, I would recommend all of them. Our stay at Singita was by far the highlight of our trip. They've simply perfected the art of making memories. I've never experienced such service and luxury. Michelle and I are both not really into animals and as you know, we had some reservations about doing a four-day safari, but there's something about the safari experience that is just magical. We did not want to leave.

Thanks again for everything! We really can't express how grateful we are. This trip will always hold a special place in our hearts.’

Thanks again Clare and Kerry.’

We particularly liked that the itinerary was totally custom fit to us, and you got it just right, even the weather!’

‘All-in-all another memorable and relaxing, albeit full, holiday in SA. What a beautiful, exciting and interesting country. I’m sure we only ‘scratched the surface’ when we visit for two weeks on holiday but we will be returning to explore further in the years ahead. Our safari experience was exceptional. The Ranger and Tracker ensured we had some superb drives and our expectations were surpassed as we were able to see some stunning wildlife engrossed in their daily lives- lions mating, leopard eating a kill, leopards in trees, elephant herd crossing a river to name but a few ‘events’.

We really enjoyed meeting you and wish you well with your developing business. We thank you Clare & Kerry for your unceasing attention to our requirements.’

‘Perfect & memorable experience’ Back to top

‘Having dreamed of going on safari ever since I was a little girl, I had extremely high expectations when I contacted Clare and Kerry for help organising our honeymoon. Clare & Kerry was absolutely wonderful listening carefully and patiently to what we wanted and then coming up with various itineraries for us to pick from. Our honeymoon was a truly memorable experience and was by far the best holiday either of us had been on.

Benguerra Island off Mozambique was beautiful, relaxing and a perfect way to start our honeymoon. The girls managed to secure us an upgrade upon booking and our villa and infinity pool were stunning. After 5 days drinking cocktails, sailing on the traditional dhow boat and relaxing on the beach we went to Cape Town. We stayed in the beautiful Camps Bay and did many of the touristy activities around Cape Town. Kerry and Clare had booked the most amazing dinners for us - places we never would have found by ourselves. Finally we travelled to a luxurious tented camp where we went on twice daily game drives with extremely experienced trackers and guides. We saw the Big 5 in 24 hours. What a perfect end to a fabulous holiday.

We honestly cannot thank Kerry and Clare enough for organising such a perfect and memorable experience for us. We can't wait to return soon - thank you so much Kerry and Clare.’

I liked all your small hints & suggestions – as you don’t want to think about when you are on holiday!

Your organisation and swift response to requests were second to none. I have already recommended you to several friends who are planning to go to South Africa. Thank you again for making our trip such a success.’

‘Incredible attention to detail’ Back to top

‘Here’s My Card arranged a week in Zanzibar for us following a few days safari in the Masi Mara. In true HMC fashion, no option was left unexplored and the level of patience and attention to detail was, as always, incredible. This was the third trip HMC has arranged for us and we have never been disappointed, and this holiday was no exception. Like all trips arranged by Clare and Kerry, their trademark travel bible / itinerary was sent to us a few days prior to travel outlining the details of each day with traveller tips, restaurant recommendations and emergency contact details.

On arrival, and to our surprise, they had already arranged a late checkout for our departure, negotiated a complimentary couples massage and champagne in the room. HMC take the stress out of arranging a holiday and I would not visit anywhere in Africa without speaking to Clare and Kerry. As always, a massive thank you for from the Chrysostomou’s, and we look forward to starting a new adventure with you later on this year!’
