Reviews for Southern Africa luxury wildlife & beach vacation


review 12 Jun 2011

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

Botswana was the best. We want to go back today!! One of the most memorable moments is arriving in our first camp, and barely two hours later, sitting on a Land Rover just meters from a male lion, and nothing between him and us! Just amazing!

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

Be sure you don't mind flying. Lots of flying, and some of it on some pretty old and/or small planes. If we had known, we would have maybe have chosen a different beach destination than Mozambique, as this added quite a bit of flying. In Victoria Falls, I would recommend not staying in the Zambezi Sun or the Royal Livingston. Despite being right on the falls, they feel like large Mediterranean style resorts. Travelers who stayed in African style lodges upstream of the falls seemed to have better things to say.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

In Botswana absolutely! Not sure about Zambia and Mozambique...

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

Absolutely amazing! The vacation of a lifetime! Especially Botswana, where I am sure we will one day return.
