This was truly a trip of a lifetime. My wife and I have been wanting to go to South Africa for years and we finally did it amidst much uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. It was worth every second and that is because of Natalie, our travel specialist. She was absolutely spectacular. We worked with her for over a year planning this trip through several changes and she was there every step of the way. Even when we got to South Africa, we were able to contact her to make changes and additions to our itinerary and she was always pleasant and available. We must have gone through 20 different itineraries, but the one we landed on was absolutely spectacular. There aren't enough wonderful things to say about her. From the first call to now, she's been wonderful and I'd recommend her for any trip to the absolutely breathtaking country of South Africa and beyond. The people across the board were so wonderful. From drivers to hotel staff to housekeeping and cooking. All were amazing and the food we ate throughout our trip was to die for.As for traveling during COVID-19, it was a very positive experience. We were tested 72 hours ahead in the US and received our tests in plenty of time to print them and bring them to the airport. In South Africa, we waited a little less than an hour for a test ahead of our return flight home, but it was an easy process and the results were promptly received. From mask-wearing to hand sanitizer, everything was expected, but hardly impacted our experience.Thank you again for everything!
Every piece was unique in its own special way. Cape Town was so lovely, positioned beautifully on the shore with Table Mountain towering above. We had a fantastic hike and the food was excellent! The winelands and our stay in Franschhoek was inescapably beautiful. Rickety Bridge Manor was magnificent and the Wine Tram made the day so fun! And then there was Safari -- cruising through the bush and discovering animals we've only seen on TV. We saw all of the Big 5 and our stays were remarkable. Unforgettable.
The one minor change would be to stay in one place for our 4-night safari. We wanted to try a couple of different options, but we could have stayed at just one location. Though we did see different game at each location and experience a completely different type of lodging.
