Great trip,it ranks as our best vacation and we have been to many exotic places.Our safari travel company did a great job at merging two different experiences together. Half of our vacation was with a big group but the other half was more intimate and higher end(with our safari travel company). I ,also appreciate, as the dollar increased in value to the rand, that savings was passed on to us.
We lovvvvved the guides and tracters at Arethusa Safari Lodge. The accomandations, the staff,the food,but most of all ,the guides for us, was key. We also liked the smaller size of the groups. The meals in the bush for brunch and dinner were so first class.The staff at Kwara Camp singed and danced for my birthday, so I will always fondly remember them. We had so much fun with our guides. The two of them showed us the big five, but also, many beautiful birds.For us the feel of the Elephant Camp was different. Yes ,beautiful room ,delicious food and helpful staff,but there seemed as if ,the fun and lightheartedness of the other camps were missing. We adored Sylvester and his handlers.
If I could redo our time in Cape Town, I would have our safari travel company do the tour of the city. I would not do the helicopter ride,because it was crowded and over priced. I would have someone else take the elephant ride pictures.The man taking the pictures didn't include the elephant. Kwara Camp needs fans or air conditioning and the smell of the toilets in the rooms was overwhelming at times.
