The overall trip was beyond fantastic! I am not sure I will ever go on another vacation that was as amazing as this one. This Africa safari travel company was perfect. We did not have a lot of time to plan this trip, so we needed some help. They were organized and nailed exactly what we were looking for....one week adventure and one week of relaxation. We had high expectations for the trip and somehow the trip surpassed them.
There were so many great parts, but I think the safari will win. We had an amazing safari. Dulini is a gorgeous lodge and everyone there was so amazing.
Ian is true professional and keeps the conversation flowing between his guests who have never met, are different ages, and from all different backgrounds.
Our Ranger, Fred is the man. He is knowledgeable, personable, and very patient. We would see other land rovers come up to animals we were watching, take a few pics, and speed off to the next. Fred would let us observe the animals, while sharing great, detailed information about them. Next thing you know we would see something that other wouldn't....like 13 lions taking down a buffalo! In this particular case, he was even telling rangers from other lodges not to leave! It was like he knew what was going to happen!
Our tracker, May, was nothing short of unbelievable. The guy found everything. He even found a chameleon in a tree, while we were speeding past it, at night....TWICE! The second one being even smaller! They were shining the light on it and I couldnt event find it. He is extremely gifted. On top of that he was so pleasant to be around. Every now and then turning back and smiling when the car was amazed by his skills.
The two things I would do differently is make reservations earlier at the nicer restaurants and stay in camps bay or the waterfront. We did not love our Cape Town hotel. We had a difficult time pronouncing the name of the place, which made it difficult to tell cab drivers where to go and there were ants in the bathroom at all times.
