This Africa safari tour company was truly extraordinary!
We took a family trip to South Africa, with four children, (ages 9, 10, 10, & 11) and five adults and stayed at three different places over two weeks. This meant we had to travel from place to place by vans and planes. We were met at each location by a driver or guide and were taken to the next place with ease. We felt very taken care of.
The choice of hotels and lodges, which was made by the tour company, with children in mind, was terrific. We loved being in Cape Town in the Camps Bay area. Because we needed so many rooms, they gave us the entire house and we felt like we were in a beautiful home. The breakfasts they provided were wonderful and plentiful and the kids loved the afternoon tea. We were close to town and good restaurants for dinners which we could walk to, and that was a big plus. We then travelled to Thornybush Lodge, which we loved. The kids were given Junior ranger backpacks upon arrival and they felt special. The lodge was comfortable with good food and a great ranger as our guide. We then went to Sabi Sabi for the last four days of our trip and it was amazing. The suites were fabulous....very luxurious. The food was excellent and our guide was extraordinary. The lodge also had the "Elefun Center" which the kids loved. It was a supervised drop in center which had a play area, arts and crafts projects and activities geared to the animals. It provided a wonderful place for the kids to go between game drives.
We had three days in Cape Town, with one day free and two days of tours. We changed the itinerary to give us the first day free, instead of the last, which enabled us to have time to adjust to the time change and our lack of sleep from the long journey from NYC. This was really good. In retrospect, I would have preferred an additional day in Cape Town as its such a beautiful city and there is so much to do, and three days in each game camp, instead of four at the last. There was too much packed into the tours for the two days, and we omitted going to some of the places! But that aside, the trip was absolutely fabulous. It will always be remembered with great fondness.
