Our trip to Botswana and South Africa was to say the least a fantastic trip of a life time. We left home Sept 1 and returned Sept 29. The main reason our trip was this good was the tour company and their agents who worked with us to plan the trip we wanted. We wanted safaris in Botswana, South Africa with diverse animal habitants and landscaping, then a self- drive on the Garden Route ending in Cape Town. After 16 game drives, 13 flights, and 13 different accommodations, all went smoothly and without problems.
We wanted small groups whereever we were...game drives were 4 to 6 per jeep..and few jeeps at game sightings ...prearranged tours in J-burg and Cape Town...groups were 4, 6 and 7. Can't ask for better than that....accommodations were wonderful and staff at camps very friendly and knowledgeable. Self drive easy and fun because we could stop, go and see want we wanted. Even though we were not used to driving on the other side of the road ...had no problems....would encourage others from U.S. to do this instead of bus tours out of Cape Town.
We had planned a whale watching tour out of Gansbaai...last minute changed our mind...should have taken the tour. Saw very few whales from coast line. Some small changed during drive from Oudtshoorn to Swellendam...minor at the least. Wish we could have avoided the long transfer day from Sabi Sands to Phinda (without added expense)...but it wasn't that bad.
