Nikki O'Hare has been the BEST consultant that I have ever dealt with! I have been involved myself in travel professionally for over 30 years.... Your agents on the ground in Zimbabwe 'Wild Horizons' were just excellent! Professional and efficient. A pleasure to deal with. All the arrangements that were made by you were correct, and we were met everywhere as promised. The whole trip went like clockwork!
Loved Zimbabwe. Nice new airport in Vic Falls. Felt safe at all times. We were 2 females, went to local markets etc .Never felt uncomfortable. Was very glad to see the Falls from Zimbabwe as the view of the Falls are not half as good from the Zambian side! The Zambesi River Cruise an absolute delight! Small group, excellent food and drinks.Very enjoyable indeed.
Loved Botswana.Cannot wait to return!
Victoria Falls Hotel...... What can I say? A pure pleasure indeed! One of the best hotels ever. The upgrade to the Stable wing well worth it. The breakfast served by the pool, overlooking the Falls..... I wish I was back there.The food was amazing, the service excellent and the grounds brilliant! One of those Old Style Colonial Hotels that should be preserved for ever.
Absolutely loved Chobe under Canvas. We would have loved to have stayed for another few nights. A very 'rustic' feeling but not much of a 'compromise' on facilities/comfort. Wonderful beds with duvets, wonderful food, and a great atmosphere. Will definitely come back. Are looking at the & Beyond Expeditions already!
Accommodation fabulous, staff, food and facilities fabulous. Wildlife limited. Our guide not the best. I think he would not be able to track his own 'shadow'....which was a shame for a 5 star lodge. Xaranna is a water activity based lodge, and for those activities it was very enjoyable. For us Xaranna was perfect to be between Chobe under Canvass and Sandibe.
Just Fabulous! Our guide, Paolo was excellent. What he didn't find us in the line of wildlife! He was a man with a' plan'. He was outstanding and professional. The accommodation and the food second to none. the service and the standard of accommodation was outstanding! There is nothing else that anyone could wish for in a lodge.
Nikki O'Hare is by far the BEST travel consultant/specialist that I have ever dealt with ! I have been professionally involved in travel myself for nearly 30 years, and find it very hard to give over the reins to somebody else..... Nikki was so efficient, helpful and patient at all times, it was a pure pleasure to deal with her! Will I deal with her again? That is a definite YES....If I were to open an agency myself, I would most certainly look for her to join my company! I also have to complement Maura of the Accounts Department. What a lovely and professional lady to deal with. Mahlatini you have most definitely delivered!
