We had never been to Africa before and were very green on the process. I contacted this Africa safari travel agent and she walked me carefully thru the process and helped me choose excellent and different safari camps. The safari lodge at Thornybush Game Reserve was beautiful, understated and the guides and staff were all first class. The camp at Sabi Sands was more elegant, grounds bigger and the staff and guides were beyond first class! We saw a lot of animals at Jackleberry which was great and our guide at Sabi Sand saw to it that we saw EVENTS ...leopards doing a mating dance, a mother leopard dragging an impala up a tree, then going to feed three newly born leopard cubs, a mother hippo with her new baby. He was passionate and very well informed about not only the animals but the plants, trees and birds as well. We loved both experiences and were told by other travel agents whom we met on the safaris that we had chosen VERY well our safari camps. That was because our travel agent was so very helpful and informative.
One issue...because I am not a seasoned traveler I was not right on top of getting our airline seats as soon as we booked. It would have been helpful if we had been told to do that.
Wineries near Capetown, Table Mountain in Capetown, the Garden Route near Knysna the safaris and the camaraderie with all our groups as well (of course) as all the animals!
Really check into deals on airfare and up grades
