Our travel agent created the trip of a lifetime for us. From the very beginning, he listened to what we wanted out of our safari experience, as well as our time in Cape Town, and he delivered an incredible customized itinerary. We had friends join us for part of our trip, and he worked hard to create two overlapping itineraries that matched both of our budgets. Every time I emailed our agent with a question, he responded promptly. While I handle planning and booking most of our vacations, for Africa I felt like I needed an expert who could navigate all the different areas and accommodations. Our agent has a background as a ranger and a photographer. He has personal connections and a deep passion for the animals in Africa. In addition to going above and beyond for us, I appreciated that every lodge we stayed at was committed to conservation and employing staff members from local communities. We have already started recommending this company to everyone we know!
We loved our time at Phinda Game Reserve and Sabi Sands. Going to two different reserves allowed us to see a variety of animals and experience different game drives. They were completely unique, and both were incredible. I would absolutely recommend staying at more than one location for the safari portion of a trip to South Africa.
We stayed 4 nights in Cape Town, but really only had 3 full days to experience the city. During those three days we hiked Lion’s Head, took a free walking tour of the city, had lunch at the V&A Waterfront, went great white shark cage diving, drove down to Boulder Beach and Cape’s Point, and spent a day in the wine region. Every day began before sunrise and ended after dark. If I could do it over again, I would spend an extra night in Stellenbosch or Paarl and divide the shark cage dive and the drive to Cape’s point into two separate days to allow more time for exploring and relaxing.
