Trip was great. Everything went well. Only male lions didn't cooperate and come out of hiding. For the most part, we enjoyed not seeing lots of tourists. Guides are incredibly knowledgeable and well-trained. Every lodge offered us a different experience. There is a constant excitement about seeing animals.
1. In Jo'burg area - Apartheid Museum and diamond mine. 2. Chobe (Tambo) great to see animals by river and watering hole drawing animals, especially at dusk. 3. Bomani Lodge in Hwange - wonderful to go to village and see two schools. Also great to be in elephant blind. 4. Africa on Foot (Kruger) - nice to do some walking after spending long hours in land rovers. 5. Cape Town was incredible from the peninsula tour, including seeing penguins at Simon's Town and Cape Point and Lighthouse with spectacular views, wine lands tour, Table Mountain, etc. 6. Victoria Falls and canoe trip on Zambezi.7. Video of our safari at Africa on Foot. 8. The food was plentiful and delicious. Snacks were offered while we were out. 8. Enjoyed drive around Pretoria.
1. Probably hit Victoria Falls a few weeks earlier to see them even fuller. 2. Spend perhaps one more day in Jo'burg. 3. Maybe make the trip in mid-August when it wouldn't be quite so hot. 4. Be sure of what lodges charged extra for water. 5. Since we traveled with friends, we would have appreciated if our rooms were more equal. In one place our friends had a full indoor bathroom, whereas we had to go outside for the private shower and sink, though the toilet was inside. 6. Try a more northern spot in Kruger.
