Mike and I are currently at Atlanta airport waiting for our trip to Tucson. sorry we missed your call in Capetown. We just walked into the room when you called. Mike and I, together with our friends Kim and Gary, would like to thank you for such a magical trip, a trip of a lifetime. We have travelled all over the world and this tops them all. Everything far exceeded our expectations. The places you booked for us were absolutely fantastic! The service was impeccable, the people were very friendly. From the time we landed to the time we left Capetown, the attention given to us was just beyond words. And the food....what a treat!!! We couldn't believe how good the food was throughout our entire trip.
Victoria Falls was indeed fascinating and our stay at Royal Livingstone was fabulous and right away we knew that it was indeed a preview of what to expect.
Chobe was great. The herd of elephants that greeted us on our arrival at the Chobe Game lodge was awesome. They prepared a fabulous romantic dinner for us at night at their beautiful gardens, complete with candle lights, flowers and private servers...did not expect this at all. Place was gorgeous...wished we could have stayed longer.
Our stay in Xugana Island Resort was also memorable. Our room overlooking the lagoon was spectacular. The small staff really catered to us. We felt like they were part of our family. We loved the water Safari!!! Our guides Ken and Promise took good care of us,and so did the rest of the staff.
Krueger was unbelievable. First of all the they upgraded us to a Presidential suite which looked like pages from architectural digest...we were totally spoiled! Then our guide AK and Foster were brilliant. They made sure we saw as much...we saw the Big 5 in 1 day!! They were relentless in finding the wild animals for us. The night drives were unforgettable and breakfasts with the elephants were such a treat and more than we asked for. All the meals were delicious.
Our accommodation at Alfred and Victoria was just perfect. We loved the location. Would not exchange our stay there with any fancier hotels.....what a shopping and culinary delight. Food was just to die for. We had fantastic weather during our 2 day tour of beautiful Cape Town and it's coastline.
And what is there not to like in the Winelands. Gorgeous scenery, fantastic wine and food. Had an unforgettable wine pairing dinner at Franschoek Inn. Staying there was like staying in Tuscany or Provence, of course with friendlier people, and half the cost. We even made a trip to Hemanus to watch the whales.
And last but not least...The Last Word. A perfect ending to a more than perfect trip. Our farewell dinner prepared by the staff was outstanding. Our rooms had the most gorgeous views of the beach and the mountains. The sun came out on the last day, so we were able to enjoy the sun and the beach before heading home.
Thanks again for arranging this private magnificent trip for us. One may think that booking a private trip will be exorbitantly expensive, but you worked with us with our limited budget and everything turned out so well. We are aware that we have numerous choices to book this trip, and we we so grateful that we ended up booking with your company. We enjoyed it so much 4 of us may come back and see other parts of Africa. We will definitely call on you again.
Mike, Linda, Kim and Gary
Staying at the beautiful accomodations (and being catered to) and of course the magic of Safari rides.
Maybe stay longer. Chobe was awesome but could have stayed another day. Every place we went we wished we could have stayed longer.
