The trip was really better than we could have ever imagined. We planned a trip at the very last minute (about five weeks before departure) and our travel agent and her team put together an amazing itinerary within a day or two that completely met our particular needs and desires. She could not have been better, or easier, to work with and was very passionate and professional at every turn. We had more than enough information about the trip and any nuances that we were likely to encounter on the trip. In short, every question or issue was answered without trouble.
I could go on forever but each part really was special and unique on its own. We loved Cape Town and everything that is has to offer. It was so easy to get around and see things that you would never otherwise get a chance to see. While we digested quite a bit, it never felt rushed or thrown upon us and we were able to move at a great pace. We'd love to get back and spend more time there.
The portion of our trip spent in Zambia was equally memorable, both the people and the location. Everyone was very friendly and our afternoon spent in the local village was an experience we won't soon forget.
Lastly, the days spent on safari were probably the highlight of the trip for us. The two lodges (Lion Sands and Londolozi) were some of the nicest places we'd ever had the pleasure of visiting. Both were extremely accomodative and flexibile and were able to take care of every request. Spending New Year's Eve out in the bush was fantastic and the staff at Londolozi threw a wonderful Gatsby-themed party for all the guests.
At every stop we felt as though we were part of a family returning home as everyone was so welcoming and inclusive which really made the trip as enjoyable as possible.
We'd love to go back, explore a few different areas such as the Garden Route and spend as much time as possible on vacation there. We could have easily packed half as much and stayed twice as long.
