We had a fantastic journey to Africa and will remember it for a life time. Travel is all about the "stories" that are created...and we have wonderful stories to tell our family and friends. We structured this trip in a way that was done as if we would never be back...in other words we wanted to see a variety of things in the time we had...as opposed to "knowing" we would be back and just zeroing in on one type of experience. That has now changed...we definitely want to go back to Africa for another adventure.
We are very experienced travelers but we have never been anywhere in Africa...nor do we know anyone with "current" experiences. So we had to put our trust in the travel professionals we selected. They did not disappoint. All the accommodations, bush camps, drivers, guides and restaurants were all excellent.
Number One...has to be the game drives. We went to two different parts of the Serengeti and had two completely different experiences. In the south we were fortunate enough to arrive just has 2.5m Wildebeest and Zebra were showing up for the "great migration". Unless you have been in the middle of it...you can't possibly understand it. We also saw the Big Five...albeit the Rhino (and her baby) were from a long distance away. The Rhino is under serve pressure from poaching and we fear that may be the last wild Rhino we ever see.
Number Two...would be the people in Tanzania and South Africa. We had great fun and interaction with them. Especially with our hosts at the African cooking school in Langa (Cape Town), South Africa.
Number Three...would be the Wine Country tour outside of Cape Town.
As always, it comes down to having more time. If time had permitted...we would like to have explored the Ngorongoro Crater area. And we were not able to sufficiently tour Cape Town.
