Our safari trip designer was excellent. I knew where we wanted to go and what we wanted to do, but had no clue how to set it all up. Before this trip we had never been out of country and had only flown one other time prior. Travel was almost a foreign word to us. Understandably, we had a lot of fears in the early stages of planning, but our trip designer buried them all. She was wonderful. She answered all of my questions, and even those I didn't know to ask. We desired to go on a walking safari, not one of those 30 minute interpretive walks around camp, but a true 3-4 hour walk in the bush, and she made it happen. Our flights, transfers, and guides ran seamless, and I loved being expedited through immigration and escorted to our connecting flight. Everything worked out perfectly.
It was all wonderful and I couldn't imagine missing out on any of it, but the high-light for me was defiantly the walking safari. It is not for the faint of heart nor for those who have little respect for the power of the wild bush, that said, I fell in love. We were able to quietly sit under the shade of a tree on one side of a dry river channel while two six week old leopard cubs played and pounced just across the channel in front of their den. We watched and photographed them for 30 minutes, while listening to the call of birds and grunts of the nearby baboons, all the while wondering where mom was. The sounds and smiles of South Africa will always be engraved on my heart.
My only regret was not staying longer. I wish we would have stayed one more day in each place and two more at Rhino Walking Safari. Otherwise it was perfect.
