This was a fantastic trip - dare I say the trip of a lifetime - and we travel a lot! We traveled as a family of 4 with two boys age 4 and 5. Our agent and travel team did an excellent job of taking into consideration what our needs would be as a family with small children - making sure the boys could participate in game drives, incorporating activities like a ropes course in Cape Town that they could do - even made sure that the apartment in Cape Town was stocked with snacks for them when we arrived.
In the planning stages the company was prompt with replies to emails and to answer any questions. We were frequently updated as plans got firmed up and given lots of options to make our trip exactly what we wanted it to be.
The planned route worked out great for us. Doing the Safari portion first allowed the kids to take naps in the jeep if they were tired from jet lag, but didn't stop the adventure for the rest of us. Everyone was happy and no one felt like they missed out.
We were met at the airport by the travel agency team in Johannesburg on the two stops we made through there. They made sure we got to our next flight and hotel without any confusion. An extra bonus was a free set of high quality binoculars they gifted us with on arrival - they came in handy!
This is a trip that I can't even pick out the most enjoyable because it was all great. I'll mention a few of the great things we did:
Upgrade my SLR camera lens : ) - worth carrying!
Plan more time in Cape Town - so much to do and see there. We just did 3 days, but easily could have done 5.
