Tongabezi

Tongabezi

"Wonderful start to our 2 week trip."

2 nights Arrived 23 Jul 2016
"Beautiful, peaceful room - Honeymoon - with amazing views over the Zambezi River. Open air bathroom an adventure on its own! Happily no bugs in sight just the sound of hippos snoring. Wonderful lunch on Livingstone Island overlooking the Falls.

We were both entertained and cared for in a relaxed, attentive way and highly commend the warm, friendly, professional staff team. Rudy, the Manager, made us feel very much at home in Paradise. Wish we had stayed 3 nights and not just 2. Next time..........

Only niggle was the plunge pool on our terrace was murky. Plenty of apologies given and we were unlikely to have used it in July :)"

Little Vumbura

Little Vumbura

"A very special place."

3 nights Arrived 25 Jul 2016
"Our experience here was very special. Our first camp in Botswana, Little Vumbura is set on an island accessible only by boat.

The game drives were an adventure with our very experience guide Sam whose tracking abilities were second to none. We found baboons grouped high in a tress to come around the corner to find lions lying in the track blocking our route!

Sam is also a bird lover and found some beautiful diversions to the search for the big 5. We met some really pleasant fellow travellers sharing stories over dinner and around the camp fire. The set up of the camp is informal, relaxed and gently brought all the guests to bond together. We have no idea who the manager was - we didn't need to know. Everything ran so smoothly.

The food was such high quality. The flavours so delicate! So please we stayed here."

Sandibe Safari Lodge

Sandibe Safari Lodge

"We saw everything we could imagine!"

3 nights Arrived 28 Jul 2016
"Having had such a personal experience at Little Vumbura we found the size and set up at Sandibe a little impersonal. Stunning buildings so cleverly designed. However the organisation seemed to push the guest apart rather than together e.g. separate tables at each meal as norm.

The wildlife was extraordinary! We saw lions, leopards, wild dogs, hippos, elephants, zebra and giraffe - all with lots of young. Hyena, Jackal, Hippo, various antelope including Sable.

The concentration of animals was totally beyond all expectations. Wildlife stories that we could follow in episodes through morning and night drives. Wild dogs with 14 puppies, also hunting as a pack. Mother leopard hunting and hiding her kill. Loosing one of her 2 cubs only to be reunited with it a day later. Our guide was SK - really professional and knowledgeable."

Zarafa Camp

Zarafa Camp

"Outstanding experience, up close and personal"

3 nights Arrived 31 Jul 2016
"Very small exclusive camp. Stunning water front position. Hippos and Elephants wandering close by, very close by.

A very intimate experience - like a very special house party. Fabulous food - passionate young chef.

We visited a lioness with several young cubs - watched her play with them - so self satisfied - a very proud lioness.

On the last night we were taken into the bush for a BBQ. Such attention to detail.

A wonderful place."

One & Only Cape Town

"A very large hotel without much character"

4 nights Arrived 3 Aug 2016
"We probably shouldn't have stayed here after 11 days on Safari. The noise overwhelmed - it is a busy city 5 star. One and Only used to by a very special brand - having been bought out a few years ago it seems to have lost something of its soul and attention to detail. Only one restaurant, Nobu, was open for the first 3 nights we were there. The food was very disappointing, vegetables inedible.

Our suite was spacious and clean. The service was haphazard - no minibar refill. Great position for walking into the harbour where we ate most nights. If we return to Cape Town we would choose somewhere different to stay and eat."
