We had an amazing safari organized by this travel agency. We worked with this travel planner who is very enthusiastic and personable and has a great understanding of the region. We selected this company because she was proactive about making suggestions beyond our initial ideas and very responsive to my communications. I must have changed the itinerary 3 or 4 times and she was always ready to talk through the options with us. I am not used to working through an agent, usually booking things myself, but since we had never been on safari before it was great to learn from her experience. She suggested we add Zimbabwe to our itinerary and it was one of the highlights. Three countries in 10 days - all with African Bush Camps- sounds hectic but things were generally very well organized, including the border crossings, and apart from some small miscommunications with staff about what was included and excluded in the price we had no problems. I appreciate that our planner let the camp hosts know it was a special occasion and in each place we were treated to romantic extras. It made it that much more memorable.
Highlights included obviously the animals- especially lions drinking from the watering hole directly in front of our camp at dawn and seeing a leopard. We learned so much from our knowledgeable guides. Tracking animals on foot during a walking safari was definitely another highlight. And finally, motorboating up the Zambezi in time for a sundowner, watching the huge African sun go down behind hippos perfectly lined up for a photo. Amazing. The accommodations were as luxurious and romantic as advertised and we loved the style of African Bush Camps. The food was fabulous and the camp staff made you feel like family.
Add more days! And I have a better appreciation now of how a good guide makes or breaks a safari.
Travel Company CommentsMany thanks for leaving such lovely comments. Thrilled to hear you had a great experience staying at the various camps and all the wildlife sightings you had; lions in front of the camp sounded pretty amazing!
I was sorry to hear the camp asked you to pay for additional taxes, but glad you had your papers with you and I have followed this up with the camp.
