Our trip planner with the travel team was a class act from planning the trip, during the trip, and ending the trip. He was personable, knowledgeable, detail oriented, and thorough (a complete pleasure). I would definitely recommend our trip planner and solicit his assistance again on any subsequent trips to Africa. Overall, I would rate the trip a 4 out of 5 (see comments below).
Hands down the Kapama Buffalo Camp experience was the highlight of the trip! I did not want to leave.
In addition, visiting a township and the food and wine pairing with a Chef were off the beaten path and among the most memorable parts of the trip.
We spent 4 days in Capetown, 4 days in Kruger National Park, and 4 days in Tofo Mozambique Island (in that order). I would rearrange the itinerary a bit. First, I would add more days and visit another country. Then I would start the trip in Mozambique with only 3 nights. It would have been a great place to work through the jet lag. And, it was a bit disappointing to end the trip going from the conveniences of luxury accommodations to eco lodge accommodations. Next, I would have headed to Capetown. At least another day was needed to get a better experience in the Winelands. Visiting the Winelands and Table Mountain was too much for one day. Both experiences felt rushed. I would have liked to spend more time wine tasting at more than one winery and possibly a wine pairing lunch at one of the wineries along with a tour of the operations. Last, I would have ended the trip at Kapama Buffalo Camp/Kruger National Park. It was definitely the highlight of the trip. The luxury accommodations, all inclusive stay, game drives, guides/trackers, and service staff were 5 stars in all areas.
Travel Company Comments
Hi Angela & Betty
Thank you so very much for taking the time to review your trip and give us all such valuable feedback. Once again it was such a pleasure to welcome you in this special part of the world and to have gotten to see you twice (although even that was hardly enough time still!).
I always really do appreciate the very kind words shared. Our small team at the travel company are deeply passionate about Africa and sharing this with people so I am glad you could feel this. My bags are on standby for that Gorilla Trek sometime in the near future!
I will be sure to share the favourable comments with our suppliers as well as have meetings with the suppliers where the constructive feedback was delivered.
This information always helps for us to ensure we constantly ask the right questions of the clients and in turn match them with the right suppliers. Your feedback on the order of the stay was also invaluable so thank you - you, like us, are absolutely fanatical about the people, animals and essence of the bush and it always leaves you wanting more - so we shall certainly give the option to guests.
Once again we cannot thank you enough for sharing your special celebratory vacation with us and providing us the opportunity to plan this vacation for the two of you.
It is opportunities such as this and the feedback above that can ensure that we continue to deliver above and beyond for our special clients and members of the extended travel team family!
Until we meet with the apes in Africa...
