After 2 months of doing a lot of research on African safaris myself last winter, I had a lot of information and no way to pull it all together. I came across the Zicasso site during a search and decided to give it try.
As a world language teacher I've traveled quite a bit, but only to countries where I spoke the language, studied the culture and knew what to expect. Having never worked with a travel agent before, I realized that I would only feel comfortable knowing I had chosen to entrust a special experience with someone else. Within a day of signing up and sending our dream trip criteria, we heard back from 2 agencies. After a personal phone call, emailed itineraries and many questions answered, I chose one company to work with moving forward.
I cannot thank Zicasso enough for matching my husband and me to this incredible agency. We knew that an African Safari vacation was our dream trip and yet it blew our expectations out of the water. It was the greatest experience we've ever had and we will never forget this vacation. We most likely would never have found our travel agency without Zicasso. I love that our agency was in NY and completely accessible before & during the trip. We asked so many questions, requested many revisions to the timing and itinerary until we felt like we covered everything and received many suggestions to accommodate the vision we had for the experience.
...Would I use Zicasso again? I'm already planning our trip to Australia/New Zealand for next summer!
The only change I'd make to my trip is packing more layers/warmer layers as I did not realize how cold Africa would be at night. Unexpected rain during the dry season put a damper (pun intended) on the final days at the beach resort, but the R&R was so well-earned and worth it that I would go back again!
