This is the second trip arranged for me by Zicasso. It was equally superb as the first trip. The safari travel team's operation was well done. It was easy dealing with them on-line and on the phone. At every airport, hotel, and other transfer point the guide or driver met us ...............on time and with an enthusiasm that was exceptional. Every guide that they provided was extremely knowledgeable and flexible for small changes in itinerary. The guide's suggestions were always useful and helped us with appreciating the country and environs. Every vehicle, used by the guides, was clean and well maintained. This includes the Cessna 208 used to get us to the Safari site.
The planning assist from the travel agent was excellent. She made excellent suggestions in cutting, trimming , and expanding the itinerary. She was very helpful in arranging assistance in luggage storage while we were on Safari.
All the accomodations were first class. The boutique hotel in Capetown was unique and luxurious, thelodge in Victoria Falls was wonderful, the Safari Simbambili Lodge was magnificent.
Our original purpose of the trip was to attend a wedding in Mauritius. The travel portion of this trip was also efficiently arranged by this company. We handled the hotel and wedding details through the bride's family. It all worked out smoothly.
My wife and I had a fabulous time and would endorse this company as an African travel agency for any travel in Africa.
Capetown was a surprise. it is a bustling modern city with lots to see. We thought it more interesting than Johannesburg, but that could be because we only spent 2 nights in Joburg and 4 in Capetown. But, again Capetown is a beautiful city with magnificent mountains surrounding and the sea close at hand.
The highlight of the trip was definitely the Safari. Simbambili was exceptional. The staff, the accommodations, the animals were just grand. This is definitely a unique experience................ a once in a lifetime.
The only thing we might do is spend more time in Capetown. There were other things we could see and do. Perhaps another day in Joburg.
