I compared three of the travel agencies that Zicasso recommended to me. When comparing apples to apples, this travel agency came up with by far the best value for our vacation. Their presentation of the different facets of the trip with a website devoted specifically to our itinerary, was very clear and helpful. The fact that they had a representative in south Africa who we could turn to should anything go wrong, was also a factor in their favor. They were very professional, and the trip went very smoothly. We had the time of our lives!
We traveled with two other couples we had gone to college with, and spending time with them was the best part of the trip. We loved Cape Town, and especially loved the tour guide that our agency found for us there. We loved all three of our Safari destinations and our final trip to Victoria Falls.
It was a fabulous trip, but we probably might have skipped the Belmond Eagle Island Lodge, as the River had dried up and they could not offer the motor boat rides. Also, the lodge in Botswana, while absolutely gorgeous, offered game rides in the Chobe national Park. It was a long drive on both highways and park roads to get to the river with the wildlife viewing. We may have chosen a different lodge there also. That said, we absolutely loved all of our safaris. We were treated like royalty at all of the lodges.
We we're not aware that Victoria Falls would be half dried up in October. I think we would have gone anyway, but it is something to consider.
