Rhino Africa Tour Company

Just came back from a two week trip booked through Rhino Africa. Had a great time and found them helpful and responsive. Good value for the money just do your homework and ask questions. But definitely reliable and a good company to use!

Thanks for the info. I'm booked with them for Sept and I'm a bit apprehensive as I've never booked with anyone outside England. Everything has been done via email.

HI,

just got back from SA and we had used Rhino Africa. They are good and very helpful in getting us our special requests like sleep-out arrangements, dietery requirements, etc. Just remember to ask specific questions because though they indicated in the invoice that we would be charged extra for entrance into the Kruger park, didnt realise till we reached the gate (Timbavati)that it was quite a huge amount (R 1000). Considering that we were 10 people (extended family)how they thought we would be carrying so much lose cash with us on a totally paid for safari, i have no clue.

But had a good overall experience.

africanman_8 - do you have an actual policy from one of these companies?

I am curious if the traveler is the "named insured" or if it is a group policy. I am also curious to know what country these policies are administered in. Finally, I am also curious if the policies are enforceable in European or US courts or only in South African courts. These factors would be critical in determining the value of such a policy.

hi,

to be fair, Rhino Africa never asked us to buy insurance through them

africanman,

so, to be clear, you booked a trip with my company (Travel Beyond) AND we recommended you buy insurance from american express? we are only liscensed to sell travel guard (aig) and access america so i need to look into this.

since you already did business with my company, i guess it would not be soliciting to ask you to send me an email and let me know what consultant at travel beyond you booked your trip with. my contact info is in my profile (click on my name) or on our web site.

thanks for the helpd.

Africanman,

As indicated in the other forum this morning, I think you have my company mistaken for AndBeyond. There is no American Express insurance product that I know of for sale in the USA so I am pretty sure you have not booked a trip with my company.
