My husband and I spent close to 5 weeks traveling thruout South Africa, Zimbabwe, Tanzania and ended in the Seychelle islands. Deborah and the team made all this travel so simple! We never had to worry about anything. We were always met as scheduled at airstrips, airports, etc.
The team at this African safari company frequently checked on us during the course of the trip, either by emailing us or by speaking with the managers at our various accommodations. At one point during our safaris in Tanzania, our luggage got lost on our flight on South African Airlines, and the travel company team were on top of this immediately, working with the airlines and the manager of the lodge we were at, to ensure that our luggage did eventually arrive at our location in Tanzania..
Our accommodations were all superb! We were treated like royalty at each and every safari lodge or hotel that we stayed at. As this was a long trip, it took a great deal of planning to put this together. I started working with Deborah on this approximately a year before we left. During this time there were numerous emails, phone calls, changes to the itinerary that needed to be made. Deborah's vast knowledge about Africa was so helpful, and her suggestions about accommodations, restaurants, tours and every other detail proved to be exactly what we wanted. It seemed that many of the managers at the accommodations knew Deborah and really wanted to be sure that our experience was positive. This was also the case at the restaurants that the travel company booked us into as well. We plan to return to Africa, and will absolutely use this travel company for our return trip!
Each and every part of this trip was so memorable! We loved all the safaris-one night we sat out in the Land Rover under a beautiful full moon, watching several lions (2 males and 3 females), and all at once they all started roaring, which was just an incredible memory! We enjoyed visiting the townships in Capetown and having a chance to help the children. The winelands were fantastic and the South African wines are just outstanding! The elephant back safari in Zimbabwe was also a highlight.
Nothing! It was the "trip of a lifetime" and we wouldn't change a thing!!
