Outstanding service!! This Africa safari travel agency put me in touch with a specialist who quickly understood and fully met our desires and budget requirements. Her experience and expertise became obvious as we took "her" trip. She fashioned a wonderful trip that included the Blue Train, 3 safari camps with excellent hospitality, guest service and game drives, all transportation between them and storage of our excess (post-cruise) luggage in Jo'burg while on safari. The camps were all different, so she structured them so that each was better than the preceeding one. It was a great trip at a very reasonable price. I can't imagine a better trip or a better person to arrange it. She even called twice while on safari to make sure that everything was O.K.
Note: We added this trip to the end of our Australia to Cape Town cruise.
The game drives and camp hospitality. The friendly and helpful people we met throughout - except the horrid women at the JNB airport security.
1: Make it longer.
2: Consider eliminating Kruger NP. since it's limited to on-road / daylight game drives.
3 Avoid flying out of JNB. It's security is outrageous and unreasonable, to the point where even an almost empty toothpaste tube was confiscated. I am an 80 years old retired U.S. military officer; We have flown out of countless airports (e.g. Irkutsk, Ulan Bator, Yulara) and visited over 130 countries but never experienced such terrible, mean-spirited security. Every item they confiscated had passed 4 prior security screenings on that same trip - including one in the USA and one in South Africa the day before. I like to tell a great positive story about an Faisel Adams, an exceptionally honest Cape Town taxi driver, but that's negated by the terrible women at JNB security. This was our third visit to RSA; it will be our last unless we are somehow assured of reasonable airport searches in the future.
