Thank you SO much for such a terrific trip.

We had a wonderful trip! It was really a comprehensive sample of what’s available and I think all agreed on a few things. The 3 camps were scheduled perfectly with the best camp being the last. All were different and had different high and low points. Baines’ is charming and the food is the best, but there were fewer animals. Savuti is a step up in accommodations, the game was much better but the food was lacking. Savannah was the best game, guides and accommodations. An additional comment on the food – we all realize you don’t go to that part of the world for the food – it was “interesting” and we tried a lot of new things ?

There are a few things we would probably change. I’d probably recommend skipping the river cruise. Instead of that I think Frank & I would have preferred a second night at Victoria Falls and 2 nights in Joburg. The hotels in both areas were superb and I’d have loved to have time for a massage or maybe just a little “chill time”.

Our guides were excellent. Jamie was great in the Cape Town area and the guide in Joburg was excellent too – what an interesting city!!

All of the transfers went off without hitch – we were well cared for! Thank you SO much for such a terrific trip.
