Working with this Africa safari tour operator proved to be a good, and ultimately successful, experience. We had responses from 2 travel companies in response to the "Get Started" questionnaire. This company seemed to respond most appropriately to our follow up questions, so, after a few back-and-forth requests with both 2 companies, we decided on using this agency.
Because we are typically slow decision-makers (there were 3 parties that need to give feedback on each and every change), we got started with planning this trip about 16 months before departure. Having grown up in Southern Africa, I knew more-or-less what we wanted to see and how long we should stay in each place. It was our travel company's challenge to organize a coherent itinerary that included booking the hotels and flights too. This company made a variety of accommodation suggestions at various price levels, before we settled on our final itinerary.
We saw a lot and did a lot over the course of 14 days on the ground during our Safari/Vacation in Southern Africa. Our travel company's internal flight arrangements and ground transportation made sure that all our plans fit together very well.
The highlights of our trip/safari were the animals and natural beauty of South and Southern Africa. I can't pick a single favorite part.
The top three "memorable moments" include watching a herd of elephants swim & snorkel across the river in Chobe (Botswana), standing in the 'rain' produced by the massive Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe), and being close while tracking the moves of a leopard for over 25 minutes at Simbavati (South Africa).
Due to the late arrival into, and early-morning departure from, Cape Town, we would have swapped a day at the private game reserve for an additional day in Cape Town. Otherwise our itinerary was great, and all the arrangements worked as planned.
