Overall Impressions

Only because a little disappointed in Mauritius, South Africa I would have given a 5/5. Our trip was absolutely wonderful. The safari exceeded our expectations from the luxury of the hotel and kindness of its staff to the actual safari itself. There is nothing we would change about the experience except to have perhaps stayed one or two nights longer. We were a little disappointed in Mauritius, but not because anything was wrong necessarily, but more because as Americans, we have the Caribbean so close to us and Mauritius felt very similar, but with somewhat less. If I were to do the trip over again, I think I would have preferred to stay in South Africa and done the second half of the trip in Cape Town or Durban area. It was no reflection on your company or choices; the hotel was beautiful and the staff very friendly. I think we were just expecting something different for such a long distance from home!

Only because we have been to the Caribbean and were a little disappointed that it seemed much like that, but with perhaps less to offer.
