This travel company---and specifically our main contact --- was not only extremely responsive to the specifics of my original travel request, but also was super friendly and flexible about making adjustments to turn a very good trip plan into a perfect trip plan. The trip itself exceeded my already very high expectations...for me, this was such a "top of my bucket list" trip that I felt I was almost doomed to feel a bit disappointed...and instead, the whole experience was even more spectacular than I'd dare hope. Some of that outcome was due to good fortune (and good weather), which were not in the travel company's control....but the majority was due to brilliant planning, attention to detail, thorough researching of options and careful selection of accomodations and guides etc....all of which was certainly in the travel company's control and all of which was executed masterfully.
I could go on for pages and still not have said enough about how terrific a job the travel company's staff did.
I know it may sound unbelievable, but every day of this trip----perhaps with the exception of intermediate travel days---was amazing and truly memorable. The "highlights" were everything we did....just some examples....in Johannesburg, after experiencing the excellent Apartheid Museum, touring Soweto with a man forced to live there when he was 5 years old; then being guided through the archaeological wonder that is Sterkfontein caves and the "Cradle" museum, seeing the downtown and mining areas of the city, where my own great-grandfather had a store over 100 years ago....in Tanzania, having the thrilling and wondrous experience of tracking animals; moving, eye-opening experiences seeing much of the life of "real" Africans (not at tourist attractions), powerfully emotional experiences at Olduvai Gorge and Laetoli (as an evolution/anthropology nut, visiting those sites really meant a lot to me) etc. Our final days in Kenya (Nairobi) were the "recovery from the road" time that we didn't realize we were going to need....but our agent did realize it and designed our time there accordingly.
Nothing. I mean that....this trip was a dream come true from start to finish.
