Overall Impressions

Absolutely unforgettable and once in a lifetime trip! First class treatment the entire trip!! Every step of the way we were taken care of, it allowed us to be completely worry and hassle free, and just enjoy making incredible memories.

Countries Visited

South Africa

The people were extremely friendly, and the animal sightings were AMAZING. We really felt like we were living a dream the whole time we were there.

Zimbabwe

A beautiful country that welcomed us warmly! Incredible sights and views to see, and excellent game viewing!

Accommodation Visited

OR Tambo City Lodge

Convenient for flying in and out of Jo'burg. The breakfasts were delicious! We unfortunately had a bad experience with an extremely rude manager, but that was our only complaint.

Jackalberry Lodge

Words fail us here.... we could not have been more blown away by our experience at Jackalberry. We were treated like royalty! Every one of the staff made our trip that much more unforgettable. Our ranger and trackers are a huge part of our favorite memories made and stories to tell from the trip; the food was out of this world, our room was straight out of a fairy tale, and so was the service... and the fact that we could sight game (which was the whole reason we've always dreamed of visiting Africa!) at any moment through our window, out our private back deck, or while eating a meal, was totally surreal.

Old Drift Lodge

Old Drift Lodge made us pinch ourselves at every moment. The staff, the service, the rooms, the location, and the activities offered.... wow wow wow. The extra ways they went out of the way to make our honeymoon special was so wonderful. We have never eaten better in our lives! When we arrived an elephant was just feet from the deck of the lodge! They went over and above, and totally exceeded every expectation.

Staff Review

Caroline worked SO hard for us... she put together a flawless and perfect honeymoon that had us taken care of every step of the way and made all our dreams of visiting Africa a reality. The stress level we would have dealt with if we had not had her, especially trying to travel during Covid, is unfathomable, and we never would have been able to make a trip this amazing happen on our own! Her recommendations for us were spot on. We are so thankful we had such an amazing travel expert to put together our trip!
