Hemingways Safari(who Knows?) by newhaven(f): 3:37pm On Jan 22, 2011
Please i'd like to know if anyone knows about the company here in Nigeria and if they have a proven track record.
This is because i have a relative who recently registered with them as she wants to travel to South Africa this year and the company promised her some benefits including free accommodation for her and her spouse.
thank you

Hemingways Safaris Africa; Yes i know HSA, i used to work with them before but now i have moved to another job. HSA is a south african holiday company with two offices in lagos. One in Alausa Ikeja on LCCI Building and the other in City Mall at the island.
The two free night voucher given to families are for free and includes only accomodation in a resort in Ghana, Kenya or South africa (Just 2 nights free). But for those family that joined their holiday membership club, truely they assist in many areas of your vacation travel, discounted air ticket, 20yrs accomodation in many resorts in over 120countries, etc but it is best to attend their presentation because your category of membership determins your level of benefit. Pls note that in all this things, your airline ticket is always your responsibility(though discounted) If your aunty can afford the membership then i am sure she wont have any problems with the embassies. It is always best to attend their presentation so that you can ask your perculier question; different family have different needs and questions.

Beware of this people, they are smart crafty thieves, I was one of their victims. They hide a lot of informations from you until you sign the contract and start paying. It is an organised way of duping people their hard earned money I must tell you. It is not fallacy becos I am talking from experience.
A word is enough for the wise!!

They are a scam! I got a text from them based on their form I filled when I went to shoprite informing me that I have been selected for a free holiday trip. That I should come for a presentation and also pick up my gift voucher. On getting there, truly I saw a fair number of innocent invitees just like me waiting to be called in for the presentation. However, prior to this time, I have been very very sceptical and careful giving out sensitive information about my work, family and location. Back to the presentation, they presented as stated and requested that before I can enjoy all the benefits they mentioned I need to drop half a million naira- lai lai! mmba! O boy, come and see the sweet talk, toasting and marketing, they did everything to get my hard-earned money and I said NO!

This confirmed my initial fear about them being a fraud because why the desperation. You told me I should come for a presentation and also pick up a gift voucher but never said I will drop that huge amount of money. What for? To further show that they are really really desperate they said I must drop something. To put it in their words, show a commitment. At this point, I had to use force with them querying why such immediate demand that common sense demand you give me time to think about it. I just got up and left hurriedly.

Nairalanders always shine your eyes! These scammers are now getting sophisticated and professional.

Let us be careful about what we say about pple or organizations especially if we r not sure

HSA is a legit organization and my family is a proud member enjoying holiday resorts accomodation and travel assistance from them.

True, U av to pay a premium before u can become a member, but it is worth it if u can afford it.

Attended d'presentation bout 2 yrs ago and no regrets so far....whether or not u become a member, the voucher is given and its free- used mine in dubai and d'accomodation was lovely.

Very courteous and efficient staff though trying to get booking @ peak travel periods is tough bt all in all, its worth it

Been a member since 2012 and no regrets....If u can afford it, go for it. Besides, instalmental payments is allowed

Hello house

Hemming-ways Safari Africa is NOT SCAM....

They are South African Owned company which specialized in packaging holidays for families.They are HOLIDAY CLUB which help people especially families that like leisure and adventure to plan and organize their holiday

Am a registered member of the club and have travelled with them to South Africa and planing to travel again in Oct through them.The company have resort in some countries that when you become a member any time you want to travel,you dont have issue of accommodation and they help you in sight seeing and is fun being in that group.(Is your money anyway)

They also help their member in visa application and guidelines on what to do as long as you have necessary papers required for the travel,they will back it up with their company's own and people so far have recorded success through them
I have referred 3 Family friends and counting and don't have any regret so far.

Hemming-ways Safari Africa, cheap scam, am not surprised that they have even sent their representatives to post on this link, fellow nairalanders let's keep exposing these bad eggs and sanitize Nigeria of this virus. I wonder why they would choose someone for a free holiday and still expect the person to pay for their flight and etc etc etc SCAM!!

[You are probably their representatives. How do you call a stranger to your workshop without prior notification that you will need his money , and ask him to pay 810,000 Maura on the spot?

I just left their presentation a few days ago. I commend their hard work. They really got me. I am not mad at them, instead I learned a more subtle way of marketing. Only feel bad that I left my engagements for such a devious meeting.
They probably had a budget of 500,000 naira for that seminar, (I assume) calculating the cost to hire oriental for 4hours. I am quite impressed that Nigerians are thinking this smart to make sure they get your money..

My advise for anyone that is planning to go for any of their so-called giveaway vacation seminars, "Go along with a million naira check"

Nice job Hemingways! You almost got me fooled.

Hahahahahaha. We (hubby and I) just couldn't be fooled one bit. Their aggressive marketing is top notch. The way they coin their words and make 1million naira look like 10kobo eeeehhhh. Like they can even afford it. cheesy cheesy. We kept insisting we didn't have money and the marketer attached to us said "but the form you filled says you work with ***. Okay, we could spread the payment over months with check".

We insisted we didn't even have our checkbook with us. The man suggested online transfer cheesy cheesy. I couldn't hold my laughter. My hubby was practically begging me not to make them look silly. We eventually left the conference room with me laughing my heart out and the said marketer following us. He followed us to the car and said "you say you can't afford the package but you use this kind of car". We didn't even respond as I continued in my wicked laughter. cheesy cheesy. And to think the said marketer was a man in his 60s. Obviously, a retiree trying to make ends meet. The very reason I did not give him a piece of my mind.

Have you noticed their agents ask you what you do for a living before they invite you? cheesy. Hunger wey go beat those people dey do press up.

Now I see how daft some people can be. A vulture has no biz with a barber's shop. If u were broke and could not afford the membership, must u come on this platform and make an exhibition of yourself? You claim it is a scam so why have u not called the police to arrest them and why is the company still making waves in holiday packages in Nigeria? Well, I am a member of the club and I can tell u it is not a scam at least I travel with my membership with them. I went for their presentation and cos I could afford the membership, my wife and I joined and r benefitting. I wonder what you guys would be saying if HTC were to be a political party. My advice To u guys is that u should be careful what u say about people's biz cos u don't know what others will say about yours. They do their presentation and give u a cost if u r interested but the company does not compell anyone to join.

Hi Guys, i work with a Company which has been nominated the Biggest in the World in Travel in our Concept. Before i became part of the Travel Industry i used to ask, Why they do not include flights on the packages and few other things. Now i know why, when you are part of a Travel Club and they work with many Hotels or Resorts, there is no Company that can know how many people will go at the same or flying from the same place to a specific location. What happens is that, when you pay a huge amount which i believe in this case is over 4.000 USD Dollars for this specific Hemingways Safaris. Sure they are a real Company just like others that create a Vip Travel Club though Membership, and of course for people to know about them and their benefits, they have to exposure their Membership to people and just like anything else that you will buy, you are exposed some way how, At a Pharmacy, Supermarket, on the streets, if any Store have a promotion or a new product for sure they will get someone to exposure to you. We are the ones to decides if Yes or No. Same happen to me, i share my Company Membership and show the benefits, everything in life is through sales if you stop and look with the right mind. Of course that over 4.000 isn't for everyone so those who have the money have the will to Join or Not. I have lot of success with my Company because the prices have 7 days guarantee ( if you find for less you go for Free ). And our signup fee is only 200,00usd which you get back straight away to use towards any Package and the 50usd monthly fee you also get back at the end of the first year to use towards the packages too, Nothing to lose for the first year, and if you refer 4 members you not longer pay monthly fee. If anyone really want to know how Travel Club works and Why people join other than go to Travel Agency. Feel free to contact at Whatsapp: +353-83-424-0836, by the way i have Partners in Lagos who can meet people too at their offices.
Re: Hemingways Safari(who Knows?) by thaemm: 3:13pm On Mar 17, 2015
now I can comfortably comment here after a month of torment from the posts of "therealdeal777" or phema.. whatever your name is. the truth is that those that are quick to call people crooks are the real criminals. I googled hemingways safari after my mum told me they were going for.their presentation. obviously I had my doubts by I asked her to tell my uncle in lag to do a background check on them. well, when they came back to enugu, I was told they registered. two things came to my mind... it's either these guys are quick to grab whatever they can or they want to make sure they have gotten u as a client by commitment. well, I called a friend to do visit their building and do a thorough check and also check with corporate affairs commission. everything came up clean(this is what a learned person does, not some stupid theory and speculations online). after this, the next headache was hemingway giving my parents an appointment for coaching on how to answer questions for U.S embassy application. the delay was endless till 2 weeks ago, they were booked for a meeting for 16th with hemingway and 17th for the embassy interview. at the meeting, they were coached on every aspect of the interview and were given their hotel accommodation paid bookings by hemingway in Florida. they went for the interview this morning by 9.30am and information just reaching me now is that they got it and are traveling next month.
the point here is that it's a very foolish and stupid. thing to do, coming online to rubbish people's businesses without any reason or verification of details but just based on a distorted view about people in general. it's really bleeped up.for real. For the record, I have absolutely no connections with hemingway or their affiliates. check and verify for yourself. I'm a Med Doctor not a business man, check Chibuzo Ndiokwelu on Facebook. If u are in lag check for yourself at hemingway office at Lagos Chamber of Commerce Conference and Exhibition Centre Alausa ikeja.

How much were you paid for this "advert"? And why are you trying so hard to convince yourself us that you they are real? Story for the gods. . . grin

Read my post again. This time, very slowly. Remove the "agent" plaque from your eyes and see if there is any part that says they are fake. I only faulted their aggressive marketing and their over priced "Tour packages".

The gift voucher is for you to dole out 1m for a trip to Kenya. This excludes the flight fare ooo. Just for their "5 star" hotel. Lol

My wife and I just left one today. We were invited to their presentation. They called themselves VIP or whatever. They insisted we must join their membership immediately asking for more than a million on the spot (with part payment options after initial 30% on the spot..... Crazy people). Can u imagine. Their desperation to get you commited points to a whole lot of scams. I told the marketer he was not going to get a dime from me.
