Our trip was fantastic start to finish. All of the activities our safari tour designer booked for us were outstanding and our accommodations were first rate. We really liked our tour guide in Cape Town/Franschoek – she was very helpful and we were comfortable with her from the beginning. We really enjoyed our tour of Cape Town, Table Mountain and our day trip to the Cape of Good Hope, including the stop for the boat trip out to Seal Island and to see the penguins at Boulders.
We spent 5 days in Cape Town then flew to Hoespruit to the Mikanyi private game reserve. The lodge and our room at Mikanyi were exceptional and the game drives were unbelievable – we saw so many wild animals up close and personal (including the Big 5)! The staff at Mikanyi were outstanding! When we left Mikanyi, we drove to another nearby game reserve where our tour designer had arranged for a charter flight to Nelspruit where we flew to Livingstone – then by car over to Victoria Falls. The Falls were breathtaking – we took both a walking tour and a helicopter tour of the Falls. We had to cancel one of our scheduled activities at Victoria Falls (the river cruise) because I was too sick to go. After Victoria Falls, our tour designer made arrangements for us to be transported over to Chobe National Park where we spent 2 days on a cruise. The staff of the boat were quite good and our safari guide did his best to make sure we got to see a variety of the wild animals in the park. Again, got to see all of the Big 5 here, with the exception of the rhino.
This was our first trip to Africa so our main concern was the transfers on arrival and from one location to the other. Our tour designer handled all of the transfers exceptionally well for us. All of the individuals involved in our transfers were right where she said they would be and all of them were right on time. Every aspect of our trip went exactly according to the itinerary our tour designer put together for us.
