My husband and I are both are guides for a high-end cycling company so we have a high level of expectation. This was our first trip to Africa and we honestly did not know what to expect. We were blown away with this trip in every way. Our room at the Marly in Camps was fabulous. The hotel was right on the beach with amazing restaurants all around. It's located just outside the city and we preferred a more scenic setting. We hiked Lions Head, did a tour of the wine lands, the days were full and just the right amount of touring and relaxing.
Next, we went to Hermanus and stayed at the Marine Hotel which was also fabulous, this hotel sits on the cliffs over the sea and you can whale watch from the shoreline. The town is a treat to explore and you're close to the Dryer Island where they do the Great White Shark cage diving tours and whale watching tours. We did the Shark tour and LOVE IT!
Finally, we fly into Mala Mala and had 4 days on Safari. I cannot say enough about Mala Mala. Bar none, the best safari experience! We saw the Big 5 and we were amazed on each and every game drive. Our personal Ranger was exceptional and I recommend him highly. Every individual on this property creates a warm and welcoming environment for you. We felt pampered every day and taken care of like family. The bartender is a rare and special person who will make your stay a real treat.
Our agent was alway available to answer questions and concerns before our trip and did an amazing job of setting everything up for us based on the experience we were looking for. We will go to Africa again and We will use Zicasso again to plan our next trip!
Most memorable for us would be our experience at Mala Mala Game Reserve. The safari portion of our trip was incredible. The amount of wildlife we saw was beyond what we expected and the staff at Mala Mala were like family.
Nothing! It exceeded our expectations in every way!
