Reviews for South Africa explorer and Mozambique beach holiday


review 22 Oct 2018

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The game viewing at both safari lodges was excellent thanks to the high quality of the Rangers and Trackers. We have been on a number of safaris before but had not had more than fleeting views of leopards. On this trip we were lucky enough to see a large number of individual leopards at close quarters and for extended periods. We also saw packs of African Wild Dogs on 3 separate occasions, which we had never been privileged to see before. This was all in addition to many sightings of The Big Five often near our safari lodges.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

If you haven't been on safari before be prepared for very early (5.30 a.m.) starts every day but it is well worth it because the animals are really active then. The laundry services are excellent, very speedy and included in the price on safari. This means that you can make do with much less luggage. Be aware that there are a lot of steps to negotiate to access the rooms and the beach at Bahia Mar.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes. It provided good employment opportunities for local people and both Ulusaba and Bahia Mar supported local community projects.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

A thoroughly enjoyable and exciting experience.
