Walter Kohrs

Some of my Reviews

Review 1

Walter is exceptional. His communications and his can-do attitude was brilliant and he responds quickly and positively to every email. It was a pleasure dealing with him. Our holiday was not the easiest to organise as we had family coming from both Australia and the UK to celebrate a special birthday but Walter organised everything to the last detail, including organising accommodations and internal flights all to work seamlessly with the international arrivals. Really, from arriving at J’burg airport we didn’t have to think about a thing. We were met, greeted and treated like VIPs everywhere we went.

We all loved every moment of our stay at Jamala, everything was super, the food was top quality and the staff were top notch. The safaris were fabulous and overlooking the waterhole meant there was always something amazing to see. Walter, thank you so much for all the effort and work you put in to making this important family holiday run so smoothly. We cannot recommend you highly enough.

Review 2

Walter was awesome throughout the initial communications process and quickly offered multiple options each time we amended the original itinerary, until we ultimately settled on Botswana, Zambia and South Africa.

Each location was unique, and that was by design. The lodges were all great, and each one was nicer than the last, culminating at Savanna in the Sabi Sands GR. Likewise, the game viewing improved with each location. I can’t say enough about Walter’s efforts in helping us put together a great trip. We wouldn’t hesitate to work with him again when we book another safari.

Review 3

At the start of our Botswana trip planning I was totally confused and overwhelmed with the choices of places to visit and accommodations on offer. Over a few weeks, Walter guided us through the decision making process with incredible efficiency, patience and adeptness. His responses from afar ( we live in Australia) were always prompt, polite and very helpful. We eventually were able to organise an itinerary which fulfilled our every need and wildest dreams. We couldn’t have asked for a better Botswana experience.

We visited Chobe, Savute and the Okavango Delta and we so pleased with Walter’s suggestion to visit these three diverse and amazing places in Botswana. They were all different but thrilling in their own way. The amount of wildlife we saw in each place was just mind blowing. The organisation of the trip by Walter was seamless.

Above expectations

Excellent communications and service. We dealt with Sabrina and she is awesome. The safari tour was amazing, i can highly recommend going to Elephant Plains. Its a very special place run by awesome people.

Professional, patient, efficient and responsive. Met all our travel needs and requirements spot on

Communication was excellent – I asked A LOT of questions and did a ton of research myself and Walter was extremely patient with me and very responsive. he was straight forward and extremely professional.  Tour itself was excellent – an incredible experience and one never to be forgotten. Everything was spot on.

Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.

Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver. She responded to our requests promptly and gave us several options with links to each option; we ultimately chose Lukimbi. She then coordinated our flights to and from the property, arranged the drivers necessary to get us from the airport to the lodge and back again, and sent the appropriate paperwork to each of us to verify each step of the process. We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge–the experience of a lifetime–and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn’t have done it without her!

They kept us fully informed and updated throughout planning, travel, etc.

It was excellent all around. Everything worked out well. An experience of a lifetime! The game viewing rides were fun and very informative.

A great tour operator that was a pleasure to deal with.

We used Safari Online to put together a mid-range Botswana trip for a group of four going to three different camps and then onto Vic Falls. We asked several operators to provide options (through this great safari bookings website) and Walter Kohrs from Safari Online was easily the most responsive and quickest to provide different but realistic options and at good prices. In the end it was a no brainer to go with Safari Online. Walter always responded to my queries quickly, with honest and valuable responses that were clear and made sense. From our perspective he tailored a good mix of places for both our budget and standard of facilities that suited us perfectly, with enough information and links to help us make our decisions. In the end each camp was different and had different aspects and strengths that made each unique. We loved it.


We are six older but experienced travellers who usually do our own planning. Luck led us to Safari Online and Walter. His ideas proved spot on. Throughout our planning Safari Online have been helpful, always answering emailed questions, no matter how basic, straightaway. We’ve had probably our best ever holiday in years of travel, everything went smoothly. Pickups and transfers were on time. Staff in all the places we stayed were friendly and helpful. I can’t think of one adverse remark except maybe seeing a lion that wasn’t asleep, though I think if it could have been arranged Walter would have done so.

Excellent service and support for our Africa vacation

Working with Walter was a great experience. He listened to us and helped us build a vacation that exceeded all of our expectations. We really appreciated his professionalism and attention to detail.
