Overall Impressions

It was wonderful. Every venue exceeded expectations, every pick-up and drop-off was on time, lodging was fantastic. We could not have had a better time for twice the money.

Countries Visited

United Arab Emirates

Loved by Marilyn, I was not as impressed, but the Hyatt was perfect,the pick-ups and drop offs perfect. it was an excellent start to the holiday.

South Africa

Loved every minute of it, cannot praise Mahlatini and Monique enough for the choices of hotels and tours.


Again, perfect. The Victorian Falls hotel was majestic, as were the falls.

Accommodation Visited

Grand Hyatt Dubai

Well located, very well maintained, it perfect for the start of the trip and relaxing after a lonh flight.

OR Tambo City Lodge

This was the only disappointment. We suggest that you find an alternative, this hotel is not up to your standards. The rooms small, dated, and dingy. The restaurant combined terrible service with mediocre food. Inter Continental on the other hand was perfect.

The Victoria Falls Hotel

Extraordinary, a step back in time to the Victorian Age, unique from all the hotels we have stayed in Europe and Asia.

The Clarendon Fresnaye

Loved every minute, location was perfect, near public transport and great restaurants we walked to.

The Last Word Franschhoek

Even better than the Clarendon. Every thing was perfect.

Jackalberry Lodge

Again, extraordinary. Everything was perfect,

Staff Review

Both Glynis and Monique get 5 stars. As a postscript, Marilyn is a proselytizer of your virtues and extraordinary abilities to all our friends in Memphis.
