Your overall comments on the trip and the travel company:
This was truly the trip of a life time. Our representative at this Africa safari travel company did an absolutely great job of planning our two week trip. In advance of our leaving we were sent a very detailed itineray that covered everything from necessary visa’s to what currency was accepted in the countries we were visiting. It also included a day by day listing of our planned activities including what time we would be picked up each day. Our flights all went off without a hitch and we were always met at the airport by a driver who took us to our lodging.
Our representative did a great job of determining the types of activies my family would enjoy (we’re a bit adventurous so she suggested a cage dive with Great White Sharks while we were in Cape Town!) and gave us a wide range of suggestions to pick from.
This was a trip to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary, and never having been to southern Africa we were very dependent on our representative’s expertise, and she exceeded our wildest expectations!
What were the most enjoyable or memorable parts of your trip?
It would really be difficult to pick just one thing. This was really three vacations rolled into one. The 1st part of our trip was at Vic Falls where we did everything from motorized hang gliding over the falls to a canoe trip down the Zambezi River. We then went to Cape Town for three days where we did cage diving with sharks, and then finished up at the brand new Simbavati Hilltop Lodge (Our representative managed to get us a free upgrade to two luxury tents) for four days of safari. Each leg of the trip was unique and special in it’s own way!
