This was the best vacation I've had so far in my lifetime (I'm 30). The overall package was expensive relative to what I'm used to spending on vacations, but it was worth it. Everything was very well organized, and if we were ever unclear on something from our trip itinerary, our questions were either answered right away or expediently followed up on. The travel company would always get back to us via email as requested, and even took our phone calls when necessary. In the weeks leading up to the trip, they kept in touch with updates, to-do lists, FAQs, etc.
The trip itself was fantastic, and again, our questions were always answered in a timely fashion. The travel company even called a few times to make sure we had arrived safely. I would say it's a once in a lifetime experience to go on an African Safari, but that would not be applicable to myself as I plan on going again sometime in the future!
The most enjoyable part of the trip were the multiple game rides we were able to go on at each location. The fact that traveling to and from different locations was a game ride itself was also awesome. The most memorable part for me will be getting into that first safari Jeep to be taken to the lodge on the Zambezi river. We got picked up on the side of the road and started driving into the "bush." We had maybe gone about 10 km when a Sable jumped out across our jeep just 30 yards up. I knew then that it would be a great trip.
The only thing I would have done differently was ask if we could have done game drives earlier in the morning (which seemed like it may have been an option) and if we could have done night drives. We did one night drive on our last night, and even though it was freezing, I could have done it all night as it was such a cool experience.
