    For those of you who are regulars on AH you are probably already familiar with Lori Ginn, aka Safari Gal, from Travel Express, as she has been a member and active poster for several months.

I hope that you will seek out her advice to answer your travel questions on this forum or by contacting her directly.

    Thanks for the info.
    I called her and booked our 4 tickets to SA for August. $1465 per person to travel all the way from Bismarck, ND is a great price in my opinion.

    That is true!
    She has already been a big help with our trip and I'm sure we will see more and more of the benefits of her yet to come.

    My dad and I used Lori to book our flights a couple of months ago for our trip in May to SA. She was very helpful and got us A very good price out of Cleveland. I would definitely recomend her for your travel needs.

Full service. she worked with us for the best price and connections. everything went without a hitch. there was a schedule change whilst we were there and she contacted our outfitter to let us know. I will use her again. Thanks Lori

    Default Lori at Travel Express goes the extra mile!

    My family and I used Lori this year for airline tickets to South Africa, and I couldn't have been happier. She did everything for us. She was on top of any flight changes and kept us posted. When we were at the lodge with 2 days left on our trip the airline cancelled a flight. Lori went the extra mile and contacted our outfitter and relayed the message. If she hadn't have done that we would have missed our connecting flight and would have had a bad day! Now over a month after our trip, we get a refund from the airline for that cancellation. Lori was still looking out for us long after the trip. My hat is off to her! You can bet I will use Travel Express for all my travel needs from here on out! thanks Lori.

    Hi James~ On Page 2, Section E of the SAP 520 it does ask for "Particulars of Applicant's Spouse/Partner" if they are travelling with you. It's very minimal information - just name and passport number.

    The value of a good TRAVEL AGENT is priceless and never to be underestimated.

    ...who do you want to call when your travel plans changes unexpectedly?

    Travel agents are the answer!

    I used Lori Ginn this time for my travel plans. Being retired airline I looked into my pass privilages and found she could do better than me AND after booking through her office I gotta say- She is the best travel agent I have ever used, period, no contest. Many times better than the big names in the Africa travel game that I have used in the past. If you all don't use her for your tickets you're missing out on a great company.

    Default Lori and Travel Express service

    Just talked with a good friend and his wife who returned a few days ago from touring and hunting in South Africa. I put them in contact with Lori for their travel, touring and airline help and they can't stop talking about how well things went working with her. They are extremely pleased with the service they received. Just thought I'd give credit where credit was due. Lori does a great job folks.
