My wife and I spent around 10 days in SA, starting from CapeTown and then crossing to Pretoria traveling the Blue Train. The train trip by itself is a lifetime experience . Nice people, nice accomodtions and nice food. Two nights crossing SA was fantastic.. Returning to CapeTown we spent a week walking around in the wonderful city, with goegeous views and places to visit. Thanks to Mr. Tertius Bester from "Luxury Trains & Safaris" we stayied in nice hotels with fantastic location. Thank you again "Luxury Trains and Safaris. We will come back.

My wife and I just returned to Canada from a remarkable Africa trip . Luxury Trains&Safaris/Tertius Bester was an incredible help as we planned our 24 day trip to Africa. Going into this trip with all the unknowns, Tertius was a great help and a must go to source with some or all your bookings. We struggled getting a booking done (via email)with Rovos Train , and came across Luxury trains (Whats app #) and had instant responses from Tertius. As everything was so new to us we had an abundance of questions and had immediate responses . Within couple days we(through Luxury Trains&Safaris)were booked on an awe-inspiring 4 day Rovos train trip from Pretoria to Cape-Town . Not knowing what to expect, and definitely not disappointed , it was a very unique train ride that Tertius booked for us and highly recommended. As we planned the last week of our trip in Plettenberg Bay (Tsala tree house) and the 12 Apostles in Cape Town Tertius was a awesome with the instant responses in answering our questions and offering to book whatever we needed booked or arranged. For all your bookings and questions about highlights/ safety / accommodation we highly recommend Luxury Trains . Thank you Tertius for all the work/effort and the straight forward and unbiased responses. You helped make our trip a huge success 🙌 Ken & Diane

Yvette went above and beyond to ensure we experienced the trip of a lifetime we had waited so long for. The organisation of our trip was flawless thanks to Yvette. Continous communication and consideration was highly appreciated. We felt safe in her hands. The rovos rail was 100% best food, wine, and extraordinary service. Would highly recommend her services to friends in Ireland. Thank you, Mary and Jarlath

I don't think I can add anything to the many excellent reviews posted here except to say that our 25th wedding anniversary trip was so much more than we expected. Every detail was covered, every piece of information we needed to make the experience pleasant & carefree was supplied. Tertius suggested an alternative itinerary to the one Patrick requested, and it was absolutely perfect. We did everything! Johannesburg to Capetown to the Blue Train to Mdluli Lodge in Kruger Park, then Victoria Falls and on to the Rovos Rail and back to Pretoria. We're already planning the next one ... wherever we go, it will be with Tertius' help, we hope and pray! Thank you for an amazing trip. Patrick & Tina McMenamin

We stumbled upon the hidden gem of Tertius Bester at New Fusion Trading by accident. Initially, we had planned to book a 5-star train ride, but Mr. Beater's service turned out to be truly impeccable. He provided excellent suggestions and tips, and we ended up using his assistance for various other services like airline tickets and local shuttle rides. His responsiveness over email and meticulous attention to detail left a lasting impression on us. Without a doubt, we'll be relying on New Fusion Trading for all our future trips to South Africa and neighboring countries.

I was very sceptical when I accidentally clicked onto this sight but Tertius Bester proved himself as honest and reliable. He arranged for my stay in Cape Town, Rovos rail and transfers with reliable drivers throughout including a stay in Victoria Falls. Everything ran very smoothly and his local knowledge was invaluable. An unforgettable experience. I thoroughly recommend Tertius and New Fusion .

We celebrated our 50th Wedding anniversary by taking the Rovos Rail trip from Victoria Falls to Pretoria and it was the best decision we made it was absolutely wonderful. Tertius from New Fusion Trading did all the hard work for us booking everything and he was amazing and so patient with our constant queries and changing dates. We had a sunset cruise on the Zambezi before boarding the train it was a perfect start to our adventure. We would highly recommend this trip if you want something truly special and its definitely a bucket list thing to do. Thank you Tertius for giving us a truly memorable anniversary celebration.

Tertius turned out yo be a godsend. Initially i wasnt sure if i was being reckless entrusting my Anniversary trip to someone i found on the Internet. However Tertius responded to my questions quickly and in a detailed manner. Everything he organised went as promised and the trip was a complete success. He organised hotels and activities in Zambia and Zimbabwe and the luxury Rovos Rail trip too. In South Africa he organised a Safari and transfers to and from Joburg airport. Tertius is a knowledgeable thorough professional and 100% trustworthy. I recommend him if you need to organise a memorable trip throughout southern africa. Thanks Tertius
