Everything was remarkably smooth, the drivers, guides and hosts wonderfully cheerful, and the wildlife we encountered and the cities we explored made for a truly exceptional adventure. Our safari travel company put together a great itinerary.
The smaller camps, Nsolo and Khwai Tented Camp, were very intimate and personable. The entire staff greeted us with a welcome song that was amazing. The knowledge of the guides and their enthusiasm for sharing their knowledge about the wildlife and ecosystems was outstanding. These camps were our favorites, as the small number of guests made us feel like one family. Xakanaxa was great, and although larger, we had our own guide the entire time, who was also outstanding. Chobe Game Lodge, which is more like a hotel, was truly stunning. These four places provided a great range of experiences. At all the camps the food was excellent, hospitality superb, and wildlife viewing amazing. The amount of wildlife we encountered was beyond my wildest dreams. Just amazing. We took a break from safari at a lodge in Victoria Falls, beautiful hotel, and nearly missed our Zambezi River cruise since our path was blocked by elephants. Even when we weren’t looking for wildlife it was right in front of us. We started our trip in Johannesburg, with visits to the Apartheid Museum and Constitution Hill, very sobering experiences. Our tour of the city was very enlightening. We ended the trip in Cape Town, and three nights there wasn’t enough. We barely scratched the surface. Our tour of the Cape Peninsula was stunning, and our two nights in the wine country superb. All our guides were top notch, very personable and gracious. One thing that will stay with us is the cheerfulness of everyone we met. It was truly a great trip.
