The trip was a highlight reel. From Victoria Falls which included a changed hotel turning into a plus as we had an elevated viewing platform of a water hole visited by herds of antelope, elephants as well as wart hogs and African Marabuo storks. Accommodations were good and service excellent. Not to forget baboons and monkeys.
Exeter River lodge was beyond words. Big Five delivered with our Ranger and Tracker providing an adventure to remember with photo ops that will bring back memories for years to come. Lions, leopards, elephants, water buffalo, rhino's and giraffe. Antelope galore and birds of all types. Service is above excellent and the food wonderful. Lodging superb.
The wine region and day trip was good and transportation excellent. The hotel was a step back in time with all the creature comfort one could ask for. Service and attention to detail including a candle light Anniversary surprise a touch appreciated.
We finished in Cape Town for self exploration staying at a hotel in a great location and with greatservice.
Our agent was great to deal with and made many changes from our initial plans. We felt like she was working with us all the time.
Exeter River Lodge game drives. Up close to animals only ever viewed in cages. Service that rated five star plus from all the staff with nods to our ranger and our tracker. Watching a beautiful male leopard walk four feet from your open vehicle in its natural home was spectacural. Having a three hundred plus herd of water buffalo cross your path both front and rear while seated in an open air Toyota.
Watching the sun rise as you begin your morning game drive. Radiant reds bringing your 5:30am eyes wide open. Night drives ending with the same red sun sending you home.
Possibly add one more day at Exeter or relocate to one of their other lodges. Shorten Victoria falls by one day.
