From beginning to end, the experiences with this safari travel agency were top notch. The travel counselors listened carefully to what we wanted and gave us a set of options that were specific but not constraining. We quickly reached agreement on an itinerary that suited us perfectly.
And most importantly, on the ground they delivered. All the logistics went off seamlessly -- guides arrived on time, reservations were in place, transfers happened without a hitch. No worries anywhere along the line. This was in contrast to some other travelers we met who were having difficulty getting things straight with hotels or lodges.
The visit to the Cape Town area hit all the highlights. The guide as informative without being encyclopedic and gave us plenty of time to explore the area ourselves, while pointing us in the right direction. The accommodations in a private apartment were luxurious and well located.
Franschhoek was next. Lodging at a beautiful small inn gave us the perfect platform to explore the vineyards.
Then onto the game parks -- two different ones: Simbavati and Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge. They were intimate without being private, offered incredible chances to view animals and the staff were warm, welcoming, helpful and a just to be around. Leaving both places we felt like we were leaving family.
I've traveled all around the world and the experience that this company offered us was truly top notch. They gave us a once in a lifetime experience.
The two game parks were beyond compare. We saw not only "the Big 5" but many more animals. We were impressed with the knowledge of the staff and their devotion to conservation of the natural habitat of the animals. Their respect for us and for their surroundings was truly impressive.
Although it may have cut into some other activity, I wished I'd spend a night or two more in the wine country.
