Overall Impressions

Fantastic trip. Everything was very well organized and on time and an amazing experience in both South Africa and Mauritius. The providers were all reputable and very professional, and the location of the lodge in South Africa was fantastic and hotel in Mauritius . The instructions provided made all connections and transfers very simple.

Countries Visited

South Africa

Great Experience in Kruger Park. South Africa was beautiful. The time in South Africa was fairly short and would have liked to experience more. The wildlife and nature was great, and thornybush reserve was an amazing experience.

Mauritius

Beautiful beaches, friendly and approachable people, great food

Accommodation Visited

OR Tambo City Lodge

Modern lobby and good breakfast, however room cleanliness was sub-satisfactory

N'Kaya Game Lodge

Clean, comfortable, large rooms and dedicated service. Food was fresh and cooked very well. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and try to make the experience memorable. Able to see all major African game. One point, staff at lodge should tailor their attention to the couple, I would have preferred less interaction during down time periods/meal periods.

Sands Suites Resort & Spa

Hotel was clean, rooms are large and service is dedicated and five star, however the location of the hotel on flic en flac is not the best, the beach is much better five-ten minute walk north and the beach at the hotel does not reflect the beaches on rest of the island which were much nicer. The hotel is the most southern on flic en flac. Beach was very rocky, and more agitated. However accommodations were very nice and the view on the beach was beautiful. All other aspects were good.

Staff Review

Very good, friendly, tried to make the best trip within my budget, attentive and even advised when he was going to be away two months before my trip in case I needed anything. Quick responses, and really ensured our trip would be the best possible. I appreciate his depth of knowledge of Safari's and Thornybush.
