This is just to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Lion Sands. We had a marvellous time and saw almost everything we wanted to see. Thank you so much for organizing this for us. It made our stay in South Africa extremely easy and a terrific experience. We will certainly be coming back and will then count on Egoli Tours again!

Dear Charissa,

The Georgetown group has now returned to the U.S. and settled into our "regular" jobs - which are must less interesting that our time in South Africa!

I wanted to follow up and say "thank you" for another year of excellent professional service from Egolitours. Sharon Jeftha was extremely polite, patient, professional, and helpful in dealing with some of my brash American students. As you predicted she took very good care of us.

I look forward to working with the Egoli team again during the coming year.

Back in Georgetown now, and I wanted to let you know that everything went very well with our trip.

We had a great time in Cape Town, with a good excursion to the Cape of Good Hope and a fabulous hotel. Very nice. Food was good and Cape Town really very impressive, a beautiful city!

Then Ulusaba was very much up to our expectations, especially the comfort and staff. We were a little askance at the beginning, not seeing a single animal for the first two hours out in the Rover. But this was a bit by design and the later animals were all the more appreciated. We saw all of the ones "required," only missing the cheetahs. And the bush was magnificent - the greenery hid the animals well but we tracked and found them.

All in all, a great trip. Thanks for all your help!

Just returned from one of best vacations ever!  All of us loved South Africa.  After several terrific days visiting friends in Johannesburg, we were off to safari.  Leadwood Lodge was stunningly beautiful. Suites were very Afro-chic, food delicious and the staff was warm and knowledgeable - making each of us feel like the most important person in the world, which is what vacation should be!  Best of all, we saw up close and personal many of every kind of animal including tons of babies, way beyond the Big 5.  First afternoon alone, 13 elephants of various ages/sizes drank water at the river bed a mere 20 yards from our deck.  We also saw lions (including many cubs), leopards, so many elephants, rhinos, hippos, giraffes, crocs, wild dogs w/new puppies, wildebeests, buffalo, kudus, impala, and many horrible hyenas (the most frightening of all --they live up to their nasty reputation).

On to Wine lands.  Klein Oliphantshoek in Franschhoek was charming and convenient, hung out in Stellenbosch.  Spent day with guide touring various wine estates, all different, all beautiful.  Dinner at Reuben's, lunch at the stunning Graff estate (Wine review:  Not madly in love with the reds. Whites decent but no threat to California).  Then on to Cape Town, which is one of the greatest cities ever. Loved Cape Cadogan Hotel (great, walkable location, beautiful room, lovely public areas, terrific service-oriented staff -- with special shout-out to Simone and Wisdom).   Fascinating 5-hour walking tour with great guide (Garth Angus) in center city; Beautiful Peninsula drive with insightful, entertaining guide (Dion Fabe), two days just wandering around easy-to-navigate city on our own.  Jeff/Kristy completed exhilarating 4-hour climb up Table Mountain.  Les and I did it via tramway, which worked out fine.  We ate at great restaurants (Test Kitchen, Codfather), drank loads of wine, managed left side driving with no injury to selves or others.

 

Thanks for all your help.  Will look forward to visiting another African destination in not too distant future!

Thank you, for the excellent travel organisation of our tour in February.

 

We enjoyed discovering the magificent Cape area with the viticol'domains, but also the Blade River area and the Kruger National Park.

 

We particulary appreciated the guide's quality, both for their human relationships and their qualifications. In Cape Town the french guide Didier Bertrand was a great guide, and helped us at every moment of our trip to complete checked items on our itinerary. We also appreciated his wine knowledge.

 

In Jo'burg, Pierre Yves Maurel was very interesting for his historical knowledge. Please, give our congratulations to Didier and Pierre Yves.

 

We send you our best congratulations!

A tremendous success! Thank you so much for your work on our itinerary. The lodges and hotel were excellent and the transfers worked perfectly.
The scuba divers loved the reefs and took wonderful photos, and I greatly enjoyed the bird life at Sodwana Bay.

Kambaku lodge was so comfortable and enjoyable. The right combination of guests and staff made our stay congenial and relaxing, even if we were getting up at 4am! Our game drives were memorable, with several encounters with the white lionesses, a highlight. So many views of animals up close thanks to skilled and knowledgeable rangers and guides.

Cape Town was great too, with so much to do that we want to come back!

In short, we had a fabulous time, thanks to your work on our behalf.
