All I want to say is amazing. That is what this trip was. We dealt with this travel agency and safari coordinator and, after a few minutes of conversation, it felt that we knew each other for a long time. We had already decided that we wanted to go to South Africa. This trip was expanded to include Victoria Falls. I am going to talk about the tour, the service, and the accomondations. Each private transfer and private guide arrived early and were waiting when we arrived. The lodge and hotel rooms and locations were to use one word, perfect. At Kruger we were at Jock's Safari Lodge. Our room was more like a private chateau. It was totally separated and private. King size bed inside, a beautiful room. Outside, we had our shower (bath tub with shower inside), two lounge chairs and a private pool. Also, a queen size bed under a portico overlooking the bush where we saw elephants, giraffes, monkeys and I think impalas. The food was included and excellent. The Safaris, three a day, were led by a fully trained and personable ranger. We ended up seeing the big 7 and many more. This is the place to stay. At Hazyview, one night, we had a private cabin at Hippo Hollow overlooking the bush and allowed us to see elephants. At Victoria Falls we stayed at Ilala. On the way to meals we saw a family of baboons, some wart hogs and other animals. We had a wonderful river cruise at Chobe National Park where we saw large herds of elephants and others. We then had a half day driving Safari. The only negative were the bad sandy roads, but we weren't driving, so no biggie. Victoria Falls was visible from our room. How is that for a view? It was more impressive up close. Now onto Cape Town. Be prepared for a party atmosphere. Great restaurants, bars and shoppin. But on this trip, so many meals were included that we ate on our own I think three times. We spent the three days touring with the same guide and he was obviously very educated and knowledgeable. Oh, and friendly. We did the Cape Peninsula tour, a city and Table Moutain and Wineland tours. Unfortunately, this was the end. We were treated like royalty throughout these two weeks. Our travel agency and their travel representative prepared the vacation of a lifetime for us. We couldn't be happier.
The trip was a high light film. But if I have to say which particular part was best, it was our three days at Jocks Safari Lodge at Kruger.
Really nothing, professionals set it up and we have only praise, no negatives.
