Countries Visited

Botswana 5

A wonderful country with delightful people. I was so impressed by the way the reserves are managed and the governments concern for the environment. The lack of human intervention / management of the animals and plants is impressive

South Africa 5

Only spent 3 days in Joburg this time, but have visited other parts of SA in the past and had a wonderful holiday. Rovos rail trip is not to be missed!

Accommodation Visited

Southern Sun Montecasino 5

Nothing of comment. It would have been nice to have been offered the 3 star (Sun Square?) hotel in the same complex. Only discovered it when the taxi driver dropped me off at the wrong hotel!

Duma Tau Camp 5

Just wonderful! A very well managed organisation. The staff were all delightful and the behind the scenes tour very interesting. Best food of all three. The bush picnic and boat trip were memorable events.

Kalahari Plains Camp 5

Amazing and quite different from the other two. Nothing was too much trouble and the room service was quite outstanding. Well above the call of duty to make up the bed and tidy the room during the morning drive on last day, even though check out was not until 11 am. Sleeping under the stars was such a special experience. Alex, the relief manager had such a lovely relaxed style, while still helming a very tight ship. I felt very safe at all times, despite being in such a remote location.

Staff Review 5

Seamless smooth efficient friendly service. All questions were patiently answered!
