We're back from our fabulous 2AFRIKA trip to Africa - just a little slow in adjusting from the 9-hour time difference! Every aspect of our trip went like clockwork. South African Airways is a great airline - very service oriented and comfortable. All flights were on time and no luggage was lost! Your on-site representative appeared on time every time. Our guide for 3 days in Cape Town, was a breath of fresh air and loaded with stories (admittedly true or false)! We took two extra day tours with him down to Cape Point and then to Hermanus and surrounding areas. We met up with another couple who had just come from Chobe Safari Lodge (arranged thru Michael in your office). They took the 2 extra tours with us and were very happy with their time in Chobe - thus making us even more excited about heading up to Botswana. Cape Town was beautiful, the views from Table Mountain were incredible and the hotel was very nice. We arrived in Botswana via Livingstone and crossed the Zambezi River by boat and were transferred to Chobe Safari Lodge where we were greeted with a warm welcome and frosty mango drink. Our room was very nice with a river view. The activity center was eager to help us arrange all safari drives, cruises, transfers, etc. Esther and Reggie were always available to answer questions and help any way they could.
Breakfast and dinner buffets were beautifully displayed and the food was wonderful.
We tasted springbok, eland, kudu, etc. What an experience! The safari drives were the BEST.
On our first early morning drive, we came upon lions walking in the middle of the road with 10 to 15 feet of our vehicle. Only later did we realize how lucky we were to see the lions since there is only 1 pride of about 12-14 lions in the entire area. We saw them again a time or two, but at a distance.
On our first river cruise, we saw many hippos, crocs, impala, and of course, ELEPHANTS!!! My personal favorite! All the drivers were very knowledgeable about the park and its inhabitants. We saw lions, impala, several species of birds, cape buffalo, kudu, puku, water buck, hippos, crocs, giraffes, dung beetles, monkeys, baboons, wart hogs and more elephants (up close and personal) than we could ever count. We took a day trip to Victoria Falls and made the 2-hour walk around the park. We took many beautiful pictures of this magnificent wonder. So beautiful - impossible to describe!
Kenneth, this was a trip of a lifetime for us and we have nothing but wonderful things to say about you and the arrangements 2AFRIKA made for us. Africa is truly a beautiful place to visit and we bring home only wonderful memories.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Eddie and Kathy
