If we could give this safari tour company more than five stars, we would. They helped us in creating a truly EPIC honeymoon!! Everything exceeded our expectations. We told them our interests and priorities for the trip and our agents worked hard to make sure it was all we wanted and more. Even after a few changes with travel dates.
We normally coordinate our own travel, but for this trip we knew we needed an agent. We took six flights, stayed at five different lodges/hotels and had five tours (four of which were private). The tour guides were all so knowledgeable and hospitable and really added to the experience.
We highly recommend this company.
Normally this is an easy question to answer, but after this amazing honeymoon it feels like the most difficult question in the world! Our highlights were:
SAFARI – our tour company, to our complete surprise, coordinated a MAJOR upgrade on accommodations to a Private Camp for our safari experience. We thought the original option looked amazing online, but Machaton was incredible! We basically had the place to ourselves with a chef and staff that were extremely attentive. The night before we left they coordinated a private honeymoon dinner for us. My husband was most excited about this part of the trip and he couldn’t have been happier.
VICTORIA FALLS – While in Zimbabwe, we had a blast seeing Victoria falls from the ground and above via helicopter. That was followed by a nap, a walk with lions (we literally got to walk with AND pet them!!) and then dinner at The Boma Dinner and Drum show. The show was fun and interactive, the food was delicious and varied (pretty much all of the animals we had seen :), and overall a great way to spend Christmas away from home. The view from our room was simply breathtaking!
KNYSNA – What a gem of a place! It felt like a relaxing and cozy Amalfi Coast. They have a lagoon whose fluctuations between high and low tide was simply fascinating. Our accommodations at Amanzi Lodge were breathtaking and felt like a home away from home. We kayaked, we biked and had an amazing tour guide show us around the greater Garden Route area. It was a hard place to leave!
WINE TASTING EXCURSION - Our guide was so knowledgeable and it was obvious he chose every venue with care based on our preferences and tastes, lunch venue included. We've been on wine tasting excursions in different countries, but this experience was simply the best!
We'd make the trip longer so we could spend more time in Johannesburg, Kynsna and the winelands area...but we would definitely have this safari tour company plan it for us all over again!
