What our clients say

Dianne, you gave us incredible memories that we simply would not have had without your help…and that goes beyond the incredible wildlife we saw. We worked with you for a few months to tailor our trip to get the most bang for our dollar and to explore as much as we could in our timeframe (two weeks). You were extremely patient with us, answering all of our questions in detail, and seemed to know what we wanted without even asking! Although, our itinerary was complex, we never felt rushed. I attribute that to you. You did all the bookings, the transfers, the flights…everything! Even though we book all our other trips on our own, there is no way we could possibly have put this together in such a seamless way. You built us a personalized and beautiful web site that laid out our itinerary in an easy-to-follow format. Not only that, but you provided us an app that had our full itinerary on it and which didn’t require a network or Wifi to view it. This was invaluable! Every compliment I give to you is so well deserved! Thanks again!

Dear Dianne, we had a terrific time! Really enjoyed Cape Town but need to go back for another week to do everything we didn't get to. Both safari lodges were great, really glad we experienced both as they were different in many ways. We had terrific guides and trackers, an encyclopedia of information. Eat and drank way too much and the people were so friendly. Thank you for putting this trip together, alot of great memories that I will have for a lifetime.

Thank you Dianne Williams and Africa Direct USA. We had a fabulous family vacation visiting Victoria Falls and going on a safari in South Africa. The trip was well planned, organized and you included all the sites that made the trip very special. The only problem is deciding the best part - bridge swinging at Victoria a Falls? Lion viewing at Sabi Sabi? Close up admiring baby leopards at Londolozi? First class accommodations and gourmet dining everywhere? We highly recommend others to work with you for the most memorable trip of a lifetime.  We can’t wait to go back!

An amazing trip that would not have been possible without Dianne Williams, owner of Africa Direct USA. I was given only 2 weeks to prepare for a business trip to South Africa and the first thing that popped into my mind was a “Safari”. I contacted Dianne and within 24 hours, I had options even with such short notice and being a single traveler. Dianne has great expertise and offered solid advice on the number of days, the type of accommodations, and the logistics of flights and transfers. Within days, my itinerary arrived with transportation vouchers, information about my lodging and its daily schedule. This was an experience of a lifetime.  Thanks again Dianne and Africa Direct USA for making those days so memorable.

Such an amazing trip. All so well thought out and planned. Dianne really spent a lot of time going over the types of lodging and what fit our specific family interests and needs. The private guide and vehicle was such a smart decision. Thanks for all your help!

Dianne, the trip was everything we had hoped for and everything you described ! The itinerary went exactly as planned with no issues or problems at all. The lodges were great and we saw hundreds of animals in the wild ! We were pleased and delighted with every aspect of the trip due in large part to your excellent planning. Appreciate all your hard work and will certainly be happy to recommend your services to friends and family expressing interest in going to South Africa. Thank you and best wishes, Thomas and Gloria Burton

A once in a lifetime experience! Dianne really put her heart into planning our safari trip! Every detail was organized perfectly and the private guide was a must! Thanks for recommending that! We could not have asked for anything more as every waking minute of our days were filled with excitement.
