Excellent service, prompt responses from Robyn even though there was a 12+ hour time change. Wouldn’t hesitate to use Giltedge again.

' Outstanding service - they really know their clients '

Outstanding service. We live in London and have been dealing with Robyn Leatherby at Giltedge for many years. She knows exactly what we need and is always able to deliver, whether finding a beautiful exotic holiday home for our family of 12 in Hermanus, exclusive use of a luxurious Madikwe game park, or just finding the right hotels and accommodation for us in Cape Town and Johannesburg, she is 'simply the best'. Thank you Giltedge and Robyn !

We worked with Robyn to book a safari at Lion Sands Lodge and she was exceptional! We had so many questions, and she was very patient and answered them all. Thank you so much. We can't wait for our safari!
