Trip of a Lifetime

On this trip, I visited South Africa & Zimbabwe between 18-Jul-2015 and 28-Jul-2015 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


Overall the trip exceeded my expectations - the activities, the animals, the people, the atmosphere - all of it was phenomenal. I would absolutely go back. We really debated which country to go to and I'm SO glad we selected Zimbabwe.

I could have lived without the trip to Capetown on the front end. It was nice, but not much different than any other cosmopolitan European city. So in hindsight I would have preferred to channel that time into safaris at the camps. But overall an amazing vacation with a lot of unexpected education.
