Excellent trip, exceeded all expectations

We were all rather past our sell-by date (85, 81 with Parkinson’s and a youthful 74) so I was slightly concerned that we might come unstuck somewhere along the line. However, thanks to the care taken by Katie at your local partners regarding our accommodation and choice of lodges everything worked like clockwork. We did not hire a car but relied on drivers who all turned up in the right place and right time.

What was good about our experts in South Africa?

Katie from your local partners selected a very suitable itinerary and accommodation for us oldies and took great trouble to make sure that the rooms were easily accessible. When I enquired about the transfer from Ghost Mountain to Rhino River, I was told by the hotel that it it had been arranged by your local partners there would be no problem. They have a very good reputation. They also supplied us with a local mobile phone which was an excellent bonus.

What could our experts in South Africa improve on?

Nothing, there were no problems

What did you think about the guides or drivers on your trip?

All our transfer drivers were professional and punctual.

What advice would you give to other travellers planning a trip to South Africa?

With the benefit of hind sight we would probably have had one day less at both St. Lucia and Ghost Mountain, and extra days at Rhino Ridge and Thonga Bay.

What was the most memorable part of your trip?

Undoubtably Thonga Beach. Fabulous place, beautifully appointed, wonderfully remote. Turtles, snorkelling, endless white sand beaches and the best food we had. Wonderful staff.
