Accolades and Testmonials


 "Dear Prospective Clients,

Working with Janet at Green Rhino was a wonderful experience. We have traveled to Southern Africa (South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, and Zimbabwe) every year since 1999. Each trip has been good.  But since Janet from Green Rhino started planning the trips in 2010, our experiences have reached a new level of excellence.  Janet’s insights and contacts helped us maximize every moment of our two weeks in Southern Africa. We have had superb safaris, perfect accommodations, and first-rate meals.

The services provided by Green Rhino were outstanding.  Janet took care of every aspect of our trip: flights, itinerary, ground transport, and special excursions.  No request proved too complicated or mundane to receive her attention or expertise; every detail was looked after with equal responsiveness. The assistance offered was consistently excellent, whether our group of family and friends was 16 people as in 2013 or a massive group of 39 graduate students as in 2010.

The business and accounting  transactions were dependable, trustworthy and exceptional --- managing many thousands of dollars for our groups without error. In 2013 their support even extended beyond our tour, as they helped us get an object d’art  that missed our transatlantic flight, packaged and shipped to us in the U.S.  

We would highly recommend Janet at Green Rhino to handle your African excursions."

"Dear Janet,

I am sorry we have not gotten back to you sooner, but we have been having much too good a time enjoying South Africa to spend much time on our computers e-mailing….
Thanks for all your terrific suggestions and for putting our schedule together so neatly.  Everything was beautifully arranged and we had a marvelous time.  Neither of us has ever seen anything quite like SA. What a beautiful place!
We look forward to getting home to Abidjan and sharing information about Green Rhino with others at the Embassy.
Thank you for all your help and support."  -  Julia & Said  -  US Embassy Abidjan


"Dear Green Rhino.

I want to thank you for your assistance in planning an extraordinary vacation.  Both Severine and I had a wonderful time exploring a beautiful country but also relaxing.  We were very impressed with your recommendations for our accommodations, each place was charming, luxurious and had great customer service.
We will definitely be thinking about you next time we want to plan a trip to Southern Africa!  I will leave the Green Rhino brochures with out Community
Liaison Office as reference for other embassy personnel that are looking for assistance in planning a trip."  -  Kevin & Severine - US Embassy Abidjan


"Dear Janet,

Alan and I got home from our trip on Monday afternoon. We wanted to thank you for your efforts on our behalf. Everything, except our non tour of Johannesburg, went  beautifully. We loved Motswari. The staff there was delightful and all of our wants and needs were met. We liked Inyati, but thought Motswari was better. Every transfer and tour was on time and interesting. Cape Town is beautiful, and the choice of a hotel on the waterfront was perfect. It was a pleasure to work with you. You are professional and most accommodating. Whenever we had a question it was answered immediately. This was a vacation we will always remember.
Thank you again. We will surely tell our friends to email you when they plan a trio to SA."  -  Lynn and Alan Pearce - New York


"Hi Green Rhino"

Just wanted to say many thanks for organising our recent trip away.  We loved the Drakensberg and Ardmore Farm was a lovely place to stay (although it was a shame the owners weren't there as many of the reviews centred around them).  The Fairlight B&B in Umdloti was excellent.  Great rooms and service and a stunning location right opposite the beach (fabulous sea views) and only 5 mins walk down the road to some lovely restaurants.
best wishes,"  -  Peta & Mark - Australian High Commission


"Hi Janet,

Just a quick Thank you for all of your efforts on our behalf – we had a fantastic time and it all went like clockwork.  I feel I am admirably qualified as tour guide should I need it!
I have to write a Post Exercise Report (PXR) for my successors (the team hope to return 2016) where I will strongly recommend Green Rhino’s excellent service.
With very best wishes and sincere thanks,"  -  Ged - Lt Col G W Argyle Dorset


"Dear Green Rhino

Thanks for all the help with our South Africa trip.  The Trip was a complete success, largely in part to your help with all the travel arrangements.  Everyone in the group would strongly recommend your services for future trips.  Thanks again."  -  LTC Vincent Torza - USA


"Hi Janet ..

'Tis Carol Bristow who speaks.  Just wanted to say a whopping big thank you for arranging this lovely holiday for me.  The Livingstone Hotel in Zambia was excellent but the V & A at Capetown was the tops.  Where it is situated on the Quay meant each morning at Breakfast, I was treated to magnificent views and the service was superb.  Bearing in mind I have travelled light as a single person, they gave me a luxury room big enough to put an orchestra in.  And I've loved it all .. so thank you Janet."


"Dear Janet

Having returned to Jakarta we wanted to say a big thank you for making arrangements for our travels in Victoria Falls (including Chobe day trip) and in Kruger National Park.  The trip was fantastic and leaves us with fabulous memories of southern Africa.
Really appreciate your efforts to make all of the necessary arrangements."
Best regards,
Bryan & Fiona
