Yvonne and I arrived home (reluctantly) last night from our trip to your part of the world.
We had the best holiday of all time and definitely want to go back again sometime -- perhaps with Michelle and Phil.
Every thing went very well and we thoroughly enjoyed each location for different reasons.
Victoria Falls was great and especially the room we had. Not sure if we paid for it ,you arranged it for us or we were just lucky but we got the suite in the Ilala Lodge which was fantastic. The weather was very kind to us so the helicopter ride and guided tour was great.
I understand the staff there contacted you as I assumed they were organizing the transfer to Kasane but they were unaware of any arrangements.
I was very impressed with their efforts to ensure it all went well with no concern on our part.
The Zambezi Queen was fabulous ,made even better by only 3 couples on board. They said it is always full except for this time. The owners came aboard occasionally and were there when your hubby came by the second time. They were hoping he would join us for a coffee
so they could show off the boat to him. What a surprise!. We were cruising along and heard someone calling out our names. The first thoughts were we were thousands of miles from anyone we would know so who could it possibly be. It caused a good deal of interest on the boat.
I took the liberty of giving the owners your name as they would be keen to get you aboard sometime.
The boat is even better than the internet photos and food and accommodation was first class. We had a suite here also, presumably because of the low occupancy.
The activities were first rate and kept us busy and excited. Watching the animals from the boat or tenders was fascinating and unique. I caught a 3 kg Tiger fish. I will send you a photo. We would recommend it to anyone.
Then there was Londolozi. I am glad we took your advice ,went there and stayed in the Superior accommodation. It was a great treat for us. The food and staff were terrific. The accommodation was out of this world and the game viewing was incredible.
We saw the big 5 by our second drive and had many opportunities to see the leopard (7 different animals on several occasions.)
The Guide and tracker were so good, they asked before each trip what we wanted to see and they did it all except for Cheetah.
Highlights were visiting a Hyena den and seeing them playing ,seeing and observing a wild dog pack, seeing 2 cheetah in a tree with a kill with mum and a hyena on the ground.
We were so excited to see so many animals so closely and to see them interacting ( we even saw cheetah mating which we did not request !)
There were many occasions where security had to escort us to and from rooms because of elephant buffalo and hippo, all 3 on the last day.
The whole trip was wonderful and we would gladly go again and I am sure a big part of that was due to your efforts for which we are very grateful
I would have no hesitation in recommending you and your services to all those people that we are going to bore silly in the next few weeks and months. I hope you get some business out of it because you earned it.
We will send a few photos when they are sorted out.
Thank you once again. You have made us very happy with many wonderful experiences to live with for the rest of our lives
Yvonne and David
