Our trip was amazing. Dealing with this travel agency was an absolute professional and pleasurable experience. The excursions and accommodations recommended were top notch. My only suggestions would be: provide more information up front about the time and distance of travel between accommodations and excursions and if there are other options. i.e. the cage dive with the great whites was a 3 hour bus ride each way - was there another option closer? We may have also chosen a different excursion that did not require 6 hours of bus travel time. Our lodge on Safari was a 90 minute drive from the airport. There was a smaller airport 30 minutes from our lodge, was that an option to fly into? What would have been the cost difference. One last suggestion for wine lovers. The wineries are absolutely beautiful and if I were to do again, I would have spent and second day, but if you can only spend one day, I would recommend at the start of your stay in Cape Town so you can purchase your favorite wine and enjoy it through the balance of your stay in Cape Town as transporting wine between countries or shipping back to the states was not feasible.
It would be hard to pick just one. But definitely the wineries in Cape Town, the game drives (I highly recommend Savanna Lodge, it is definitely worth it), and the total relaxation in the resort on Mahe.
Look for opportunities to reduce travel time on excursions and between locations. i.e. 6 hours round trip bus travel for cage diving with great whites, 45-90 minute travel from airports to hotel, lodges, additional flight hours connecting through Joburg.
I would have planned additional days in Seychelles, visited surrounding islands, and flown directly from Seychelles back to the states.
Visit the Cape Town wineries day 1 in Cape Town so I could purchase my favorite wines to enjoy the balance of our Cape Town stay.
