Travel reviews by Mr & Mrs B from Wales

very much enjoyed

On this trip, I visited South Africa & Zambia between 15-Feb-2015 and 7-Mar-2015 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


The Sunvil section of our trip went very smoothly as did our unscheduled previous week at Hout Bay. We had no incidence of attemped theft nor did we at any time feel threatened.The main concern of the S.African tourist industry seems to blame falling visitor numbers on the European perception that Africa = Ebola (5k miles away!!) and that every time you get out of your car you are at risk.

We found the people friendly and helpful. The exchange rate is also ,very attractive.

We feel that this was one of our best holidays ever and we would love to go back.

Thanks Claire for organising it so well.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

In your brochure or when the clients itinerary is made up you may like to consider suggesting things to do /see at the suggested stopovers or on the way. e.g. Bartholomew Dias at Mossel bay, Drodsty Museum at Swallenburg etc.
