Our trip to Southern Africa (South Africa, Zambia and Botswana) was the trip of a lifetime. After trying to research our trip by myself, I read about Zicasso and contacted them to help with choosing a travel company. It couldn’t have been better. We were given the names of two travel companies and contacted both. After some initial contact with both companies, we chose this agency. Most of our planning with this safari travel agency was done by email with an occasional phone call. We discussed our interests, modes of travel and how much we wanted to spend on our trip, and they took it from there. They planned and adjusted the itinerary and dates a number of times until we were happy. Not everyone wants to go to Cape Agulhas, the southern most point of Africa? They arranged our flights, international and in-country, rental cars, transfer drivers, accommodations, helicopter flight, river crossing, and tours. It was all seamless. The agency also worked with a travel company in South Africa who contacted us twice during our month long trip to make sure everything was going well. The accommodations were excellent, the sites, tours, and safari drives were wonderful. We both really liked that all the accommodations were smaller venues, with their own character (guest houses, country manors, safari camps), with a wonderful setting and fantastic views. The staff, drivers, guides etc. were excellent, so welcoming and helpful. When we ask ourselves, How will we ever top this trip? We have no answer.

If you could take your trip again, what would you do differently?
Maybe we would stay 2 nights in a couple of places we only stayed one night, but the month long trip seemed to be about right, and we wouldn’t want to extend it too much longer.
