We would like to take the opportunity to Thank You immensely on a “Beyond Expectation Trip” to Africa with a profoundly put together itinerary. Beginning with the exceptional service aboard KLM Airlines to the greetings of the drivers to the hotels and lodges.

I have to say the safari was a magnificent experience for our family. As we love animal life we live on a parcel which houses cows, horses, buffalo, pigs, lamas, peacocks, chickens, etc. To see BIG animals live in their world is beyond words. We cannot say we love just one animal we love them all the lions, elephants, rhinos, buffalo, leopard, impala, zebras, giraffes, the wild dogs, the beautiful birds, the warthogs and all the baboons oh so beautiful. It was such an AMAZING experience.

Guide Experience Rating: Excellent

Visiting Zimbabwe was a joy. Our tour guide Esther was wonderful and extremely knowledgeable and we thought Victoria Falls was exquisite. Learning about Livingstone and the falls directly from Esther made it more enjoyable. Our visit at the school touched our hearts. The children are all so beautiful and so polite. They will all have a place in our hearts. The elephant ride by far was amazing. It was so amazing to see how smart elephants truly are. A huge animal and yet so loving. To actually touch them and feed them was a joyous experience.

Cape Town what a beautiful place, captivating views from every point. Thomas our driver was superb, intelligent in all aspects. The Cape Point Lighthouse the views were out of this world. It was incredible to see the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian Ocean and seeing the colors of the two as well as the waves. The penguins and seals were so sweet. The butterfly farm was more than beautiful bright colored butterfly’s. Gorgeous birds reptiles, and interesting monkeys. The vineyard was exquisite the grounds the tour and the wine. Everything was magnificent. The chocolate tour was delicious a real sweet treat. The lunch places were delicious.
