If we could take the trip again, we would go cage diving in Mossel bay, not Simons town. We would also spend more time on safari in Botswana, especially in the Okavango Delta. We would have also not stay at the the hotel in Victoria Falls, we did not enjoy our stay there. We would use a different tour company in Victoria Falls, we felt like our guide was rushing us while we were there. We would actually consider not going to Victoria Falls at all. There really is nothing to do/see other than the falls and our tour was only 1.5 hours. It is a lot of traveling for an hour and a half.
Travel Company Comments
Thank you so much Ali – so glad you had a wonderful time. Sorry to hear the shark dive wasn’t great. Typically one would go to Gaansbaai (near Hermanus) but your itinerary was jam-packed and there simply wouldn’t have been enough time to do that. It’s a pity, in hindsight, that you would have preferred more time in the Delta. There are so many combinations of land and water camps in the region that you are spoilt for choice – I love Botswana as a destination and all that it has to offer so I completely understand why you would have wanted to stay longer here. Glad the rest of the trip was memorable. Sorry to hear that Victoria Falls didn’t ‘wow’ you, but as one of the natural wonders of the worlds, one typically has a quick stop in and out to view it in order to tick the ‘’bucket list’’ to say that they have seen it.
Take care and we hope to have you back on our side of the world again in the not too distant future.
