WHAT SOME OF OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING

Laura Hartman - USA

We are finally back into the swing of our daily life!!! We were shocked back to reality when the temperatures plunged into the 30's(Fahrenheit) after our arrival home, and now today it is snowing!!! Thanks for helping us with such a fantastic trip. Each lodge/guesthouse was absolutely beautiful. We were so impressed by the level of service every where we went. The staff at all of the places we stayed made us feel so welcome. They were so helpful in answering our questions and advising on things to do on the way to our next destination. Every resort and area were so different from each other that it is hard to pick a favorite. Each time we were leaving, we wished we could have stayed a whole week, then we'd get to the next place and be glad we didn't!!! Some highlights: * Seeing the adolescent lion pride at Pondoro, and getting so close to them we could see their whiskers, then following the trail of the elusive cheetah's as the sun set * Playing golf at Hans Merensky alongside giraffes and warthogs and watching the wildlife at the river from our balcony * Flying in the microlight with West from Pezulu to track a herd of elephant * Walking with Jimbala and getting up close to the rhinos at Stone Camp (so close he was actually petting them!!) * The boat trip at Kosi Forest Lodge and seeing the hippos swimming and popping up out of the lake, then our swim in the Indian Ocean * Sitting under the tree by the pool at Gazebo Safari Lodge and watching a weaver rebuild his basket nest one strand at a time. Then watching all the weavers (about 50 of them!!) return to their nests as night came. Talking with Alfred (our bartender) around the fire after dinner * The seemingly endless stretch of beach at the Strand * The cooking safari with Monique from Andulela Tours through the Bo-Kaap and then being invited into Leza's house for a cooking lesson and meal with her family. *The drive from Cape Town through Hout Bay to Cape Point *The penguins at Boulder Beach *The Southern Right whales at Hermanus, and the shark dive in Gansbaai (even though we didn't see the one shark!!) * The Akademie Guesthouse with our own pool, the great food at Rueben's and Le Bon Vivant and spending the day with Dawn and Roger Thanks for a great trip!!! It was effortless for us to plan, and travel because of all of your hard work. Thanks again for making it all come together, Barry, Donovan and I really, really enjoyed ourselves.
