Overall the 62 day trip went without a hitch from transfers, in country flights, to lodges and car rentals. The travel team was on top of our schedule and communicated with us and vice versa as issues arose and insured that things were smooth. They were attentive to our overall needs and style of travel. They found lodges and attraction sites that really fit us and there was always other suggestions for us to consider.
The safaris selected in Namibia, Botswana and South Africa, the add on side trips such as sailing in Cape Town and the ride into the Fish River Canyon were fabulous. The lodges but for one were just perfect, comfortable and gave us easy access to the areas we were visiting. The balance between safaris and seeing real daily life in Namibia and South Africa was just great. They also provided us with maps, routes, attraction highlights to see along our routes and travel guides.
The only glitch was we gave to our travel team a piece of our luggage to transfer to our lodge in Cape Town from Johannesburg and they utilized a courier service and they did not "insure" the luggage and items in it for any value. The truck was hijacked and we were stuck with all of the follow ups with our insurance companies.
