Our trip to South Africa was fantastic! I give credit to our travel agent for everything going according to plan. Initially our agent provided us a proposed itinerary based on what we were interested in. From there, we discussed other options to price it right or to make sure we got to see what was most important to us. I usually don't use travel agencies, but for this trip, their advice on what were the best tours to take, the "can't miss" sites, the order to do them in, and how to get around when we weren't on tour were essential in the success of our trip. We also left some items at one of the hotels and it was so easy to call our agent and she took care of getting them to us before we left the area. I highly recommend this travel coordinator.
Your overall comments on Zicasso
I found Zicasso while looking for a travel agency for our trip to Australia 2 years ago. That worked so well, I used Zicasso again for this trip.
The safari was the most amazing experience for us. We saw so many animals and I never thought that we would be able to be so close to them. We stayed at the Arathusa Safari Lodge and the guides and trackers were great. Although the common areas at the lodge are open air, our room was very nicely furnished with a huge bathroom and most importantly air conditioned. We also enjoyed two days in Winelands, that were fabulous. The weather was very pleasant, the scenery is beautiful and the wineries were interesting to visit. South African wines are delicious and inexpensive by US standards. I was just disappointed that we couldn't take cases of wine home with us due to luggage restrictions.
We had 3 days in Cape Town, 2 with tours and one day on our own. I think I would have added another day here just to make it more relaxed. We also spent a day in Johannesburg so that we could go to the Apartheid museum. Although it was interesting, Jo-berg is not a tourist friendly city and I don't know if I would spend a day here if I were to do it again.
