Our safari travel agency did a marvelous Job.The trip was arranged as per my instructions,However the person who we had contacted could have stopped by to introduce herself when we were in Cape Town.
We were met everywhere as per the trip details provided by our contact and she responded also when I found out that I had a day free in Zimbabwe and needed to arrange for something to do promptly thereby allowing us to add Botswana to our visit.
It would be nice if we could have checked in at some Lodges that were booked for us Before 2 P M or that our transportation was delayed to ensure not waiting around in hotel Lobbies.
Thank you to our contact and this travel agency for a wonderful South Africa experience.
Most Memorable was Savanna Lodge and Sabi Sands Reserve ,the service was impeccable,the staff absolutely amazing.Ask for a room with its own pool as we were not offered that at time of booking or at check in,perhaps they were a little more,but well worth having that,although they do have a gym and pool for all rooms to use.
The Rovos rail was also a treat .
Franschoek is really nice to visit ,the wines especially whites are very nice,although being from California am biased about our wines.You cannot tell you are in Africa when visiting the vineyard .The Restaurants and food are on par with Napa restaurants world class.
Livingstone Falls was worth a visit but only for a day,go to Botswana or Namibia and visit the parks there ,wildlife was incredible there too.
Capetown was fun ,food was great at the hotels
I just mentioned that above,ask for the room with a pool at the Safari Lodge,Zimbabwe sucks,so spend one Day at Victoria Falls and if you have more time visit Namibia and Botswana national parks for wildlife also.
Be Careful about using your Visa Card especially with taxi drivers.We were staying in Johannesburg at the airport.Since we had a whole afternoon I asked the reception for tours.The Hotel and an afternoon tour that was arranged for us,this was the only bad experience we had.The tour operator or his driver was extremely rude ,we were charged 600.00 Us Dollars for 4 hour tour and this person used or shared our Visa card information to commit fraud.Luckily for us our card is covered for Fraudulent charges.
