Kruger and Cape Town Safari exceeded expectations! Client Feedback

Kruger and Cape Town Safari exceeded expectations!

We had this lovely feedback from Chad who went on his first safari with returning guests Rich and Mark (Read their feedback) . Chad’s Kruger and Cape Town safari started with a visit to the Klaserie Private Game Reserve in the greater Kruger Park staying at two of our favourite camps nThambo Tree Camp and Africa on Foot. After his Kruger Safari Chad flew to the Mother City, Cape Town where he stayed in the Cape Town Hollow . They had a good time, despite the middle of winter wind!  Here is Chad’s feedback:

Hi Natasha:


It was a lovely trip. It actually exceeded my expectations!  The lodges were excellent and the food everywhere was amazing!  I’m sure I put on at least 5 pounds! The hotel in Johannesburg upgraded me to the Mondior, so that was nice.  It was great to meet Michelle, we had a great chat.


I was very lucky on safari, getting to see a leopard my first night out as well as a pack of wild dogs later in the week!  I really enjoyed Africa on Foot – everyone was so friendly there and loved my outdoor shower.  🙂   And the lodging at Nthambo was amazing – it was so neat to be up there.  Although the drinks were not expensive, it was nice that at Nthambo the alcohol was included and we were not billed separately for that like at the other places.  Everyone at all three lodges were very friendly and I thoroughly enjoyed my week on safari.


I had a little less luck in Cape Town as it was quite windy and I didn’t get to go over to Robben Island or go up on the Table Mountain cable car because of the wind, but very much enjoyed Cape Town as well.  Our Guide took us to the castle and down to the Cape of Good Hope, which I particularly enjoyed.  He knew everything there is to know about Cape Town and South Africa I think!  He was very informative and planned our visit well, including an amazing trip out to Stellenbosch.


I think we are looking to come back to Africa around the same time in 2017.  Rich will plan it, but I will tag along for part of their trip again. 🙂   We might be looking at Tanzania.


I attached a picture with a sleeping lion.  I’ll try to send more later.


Thanks so much again!
