Travel Testimonial

"My wife and I booked a South African excursion with Lion World Travel in Spring of 2018 and were so blown away by the service, accommodations and experience that we decided to book our honeymoon with Lion World travel when we decided to go to Egypt in the spring of 2019 after getting married...They take all of the guess-work out of planning these trips and made for an anxiety-free vacation...Now that we've traveled with Lion World twice, there's no doubt that we'll book with them again. We've also recommended them to our family and friends."
