We booked, what we thought would be the trip of a lifetime. It was so fabulous in reality, that we think we need to go again! We had turned almost all of the trip over to our travel agency to plan for us, giving them only a minimal outline of what we would like to see. They planned the trip and only with a few minor changes (e.g. add a day for a wine tour in the Cape) we booked. Frankly, we were a little nervous about placing a high level of trust in a company we only knew via Zicasso and the internet, but it was trust well placed and rewarded. Our trip consisted of 3 days at Cape Town, a few nights at Londolozi in Sabi Sands/Kruger, a day at Victoria Falls, a few days at Chobe Game Lodge on the Chobe River, a few days at Savute, and the last few days in the Okavango Delta at Xugana Island Lodge. Almost 3 weeks in total. All logistics were seamless with no problems whatsoever despite numerous hand offs and transports.
The whole trip was great but perhaps Londolozi was the highest highlight. Maybe because it was first it had more impact, hard to say. But, the game drives in the early morning and late afternoons were just wonderful throughout the whole trip. Each site had its own specialty but there was wide variety of game to be seen at photographed at all of them. The accommodations were also super, and the food at each meal was terrific and there was plenty of variety. We thought there would be a lot of down time between morning and afternoon game drives but really it was just the right amount to take a small nap, enjoy the pool at catch up on our travel log.
There is not a thing we would change. Really. It was pretty much perfect. We had a "B" guide at Chobe Game Lodge instead of the "A+" guides at the other lodges but it probably did not make a big difference. It was just the luck of the draw.
