We were very pleased with this Africa safari tour operator. They developed an itinerary which catered to the unique desires of our family - Cape Town, a Safari and then a beach resort worked in. We were traveling with two kids, ages 13 and 16. The hotels chosen were of the highest quality and the guide provided in Cape Town was a perfect match for our family's dynamic. For better or worse, we relied almost entirely on their guidance for what the trip should look like rather than doing a lot of the leg work on our own and we could not have been happier with the results. Our NYC based contact was easy to reach and responsive to questions as was our Roar Africa contact in South Africa. Notably, one of our children had their heart set on cage diving with the Great White Sharks and not only did our contact and our guide wait on pins and needles to hear that the dive was a go (weather and disappointing shark sightings can often lead to cancellation), but they even worked to ensure that the the owner of the dive company, who is a world renowned marine photographer, was there to greet our daughter. After leaving Cape Town, we were consistently met by other designees to insure smooth transfers from one location to the next. We took large commercial planes, small bush planes and a helicopter during the journey and there was nary a hiccup while in Africa. We would highly recommend them and hope to return to Africa again and put their expertise to use again!
What made the trip so exceptional was that each location provided its own unique experience - we are hard pressed to pick the most enjoyable points. The breathtaking beauty of Cape Town, a visit to the penguins, the unreal views from the mountain tops, seeing the big 5 in one drive on our Safari or finding ourselves one of 10 people at a spectacular ocean resort in Mozambique which is accessible only by helicopter- each day brought its own joys.
Given the time it takes to travel to Africa, we would have added another country or at least another location in South Africa to our trip if time permitted. We could have even used one more day in Cape Town so we could hike Table Mountain - an activity that had to be abandoned in order to go shark diving. But knowing our family's time table and priorities, this company really built an itinerary that made all of us exceedingly happy!
