Trip was fabulous from start to finish...the team at this Africa safari travel company--especially our planner did a wonderful job putting together the trip of a lifetime for me, my wife and son..and we enjoyed to the fullest. They hided us through which countries were the best for both time of year and what we expected to get out of trip...we saw more animal activity than we would have expected in a lifetime. Only two minor negatives...the time we spent on transfers and in airports was too inefficient ...we spent two whole days on in transit --mostly flying back south through JNB to transfer (sometime on two more flights)--to our destination..I understand that inter-country travel in Africa is sometimes circuitous but this was slightly beyond tolerable. And on our last day in Capetown, there was a US Embassy imminent terrorist warning... we are not nervous travelers, but i did put in a call/email to our travel company's local contact in Africa for any up dates or advice, and never received any communication (although our agent in Los Angeles--many time zones away--did respond.)
Wildlife was incredible ...but most importantly, the guides and staff at each of the camps we were in (Lion Sands/tinga in Kruger, , Victoria River Falls hotel and Kadizora Camp in Botswana) were incredible--helpful, knowledgable, likable and a pleasure to be with---all made the trip memorable. And the two city stays that we had--joberg on the front end and cape town on the back..were immeasurably enhanced by our full day guides. Joberg, Soweto and the Apartheid museum experiences were all enhanced by our local Afrikaner guide and we couldn't say enough about our local guide in Capetown who was most interesting and engaging and tweaked our itinerary so we'd get the maximum out of our 3 day whirlwind in cape town. And of course Victoria Falls was breathtaking
as mentioned above, less inter-country transfers would have made trip better..and we might have added one or two more days in cape town...but overall was the trip of a lifetime
