We had an AMAZING trip to South Africa

We had an AMAZING trip to South Africa. It was truly more than I expected.

Cape Town was awesome and Cape Grace was spectacular! Due to the weather, we did not get to go on Table Mountain but we still enjoyed the sights around Cape Town.

Stellenbosch and Franschhoek were beautiful, and the wine was so good! We enjoyed the 2 wineries we visited: Waterford and Tokara. I think we could have stayed there all day! The countryside was so beautiful.

I would like to mention how awesome our guide was: Gideon Van Der Merwe. He was so nice and friendly, and knew all about his country. Our luggage did not make it from Paris to Cape Town at the same time we did. Gideon made phone calls, and had contacts at the airport to hold our luggage when it arrived.

Zambia was an experience. We enjoyed Victoria Falls, however it was somewhat dry on the Zambia side due to a severe drought. Really enjoyed the sunset cruise on the Zambezi River.

The highlight of our trip was Sabi Sabi Selati Camp!!! OMG it was beautiful! The safari was unbelievable … we got so close to some of the animals it was hard to believe. The camp was so unique and nice, and the staff was super nice. The chef sure was one of a kind, and the food was so delicious!!

Thank you so much for putting a once-in-a-lifetime trip together for us. You made sure my husband and I wouldn’t have any worries. You had everything taken care of from someone meeting us at the airports, getting us through the airports and getting us to our next destination.

Even after the long flight home we would love to visit again one day!!!!

Thank you again,
Greg and Carolyn
