        We liked the information wallets that came prior to our departure, thought they were a nice touch, and well put together. We were pleased with every hotel we stayed in, the rating, and locations. Entabeni was amazing, the location, the very ambience of the place, and the staff. We had a truly wonderful time there. The transport laid on was good in South Africa, but somewhat dated, and dubious in Zimbabwe and Botswana. The vehicles there were no where near as spacious, especially over the rear wheels, and several of the seatbelts did not function at all. I don't expect you to necessarily sort out my visas, though it would have been nice, but I did expect you to know the full requirements of the visas namely the specific amount required to pay. Whilst I except that there can be changes made by any country in question, it shouldn't be too difficult to monitor this, and to keep your tour guide up to date via text or email. There was a lot of confusion at Zimbabwe immigration. The only other criticism I have is with the returning home flights. Why couldn't our flights be connected? We flew into Johannesburg from Victoria Falls, and we should have simply gone through to connections for our return flight to Heathrow. Instead we had to go through the whole process of collecting our bags, booking in our bags for the Heathrow flight, we had to go through both immigration and security again. We did thankfully have plenty of time, but the queue for immigration and security was horrendous, albeit we were informed by a frequent visitor to Jo'berg airport things on that day were pretty good in comparison. This would have caused you some extra work but in terms of customer relations it would boost the ratings I'm sure. In terms of the programme overall, I think you did well to provide a flavour of Africa in all aspects. The urbanisation experience was in the main very touristy, and I guess we did enough drive pasts to see the other side of Africa as it were. I'm not sure out of Whale season that Hermanus had much to offer, other than restaurants and a nice view out to sea. Stellenbosch was nice but again a place for rich Africans, and tourists. I know amongst us the generic feel was that in retrospect we would have all preferred more time in somewhere like Entabeni. Overall we really enjoyed our experience and although in my terms it was a lot of money, we didn't feel undersold except as mentioned above. We would certainly use Collette again should the opportunity arise, and happily refer them to anyone else.

        Without doubt Table top mountain the views were stunning. The game drives in Entabeni were fantastic, the guides were knowledgeable and knew where to go, it helps that this is a relatively small game reserve I believe something like 22,000 hectares. Victoria Falls were breathtaking, it was easy to imagine what it was that Livingstone fell in love with. Both Zimbabwe and Botswana are very beautiful countries but the poverty is obvious. The game drives in Chobe were good but not as good as Entabeni. The Elephant sanctuary was a great experience, but tell the guys there that $45 is way, way, way too much to pay for a DVD that you'll look at once, and it's got pictures similar to what you've also taken. I would have bought one as it is a charity if the price had been sensible The meal in SA with the local family was actually a lot better than I anticipated, and we really enjoyed it, they were fantastic hosts. I thought the trip to the African village in Zimbabwe was interesting to a degree. The chief was a nice chap, who clearly likes talking or should I say preaching? I guess perhaps naively I expected someone in traditional dress, rather than a pair of jeans and an Adidas top. I didn't really expect to see old tyres and stuff lying around...it was OK but I wouldn't bother doing it again. As mentioned in another part of the review, I thought Hermanus out of whale spotting season was just another rich persons location that tourist go to for a spot of lunch. Overall on balance we enjoyed the whole experience though.
    • Fabulous trip. Highly recommended.

        The accommodations were very nice and the food was good at most places. The areas visited were very interesting. I would suggest skipping Stellenbosch/Hermanus unless it is whale season. In addition , the cost of the internal flights should be included in the tour price.
