Hi John and team – I just wanted to say thank you for organising our recent holiday. 

OMG and WOW!!!!!! what an experience Shane and I had and we have such amazing memories and stories to share with everyone. 

Everything was organised just perfectly, to the drivers whom picked us up and to all the accommodation and tours. When we started our holiday each day just got better and better. We both said how could this holiday get any better and then last stop was Sabi Savanna and OMG how amazing is this place and the service was just impeccable. My only fault is they feed you too much.

Everyone has asked what was my highlight of the trip and I really cant say as each destination was amazing.

Our tour of Johannesburg was good but it was a little depressing to see the living conditions of so many people, but was very good to see. 

Royal Livingston was our first encounter with some of the animals which was very exciting, we started with our helicopter flight over the falls and then we added swimming in devils pools (which I nearly pulled out of but so pleased I did it) and then a river Safari where Shane and I were treated like royalty as we were the only ones on the boat that day.

Elephant camp didn’t disappoint us as the service and food was amazing, Moses and Pressure and the team’s hospitality was so amazing and our experience with the elephants feeding them was awesome.

Cape Town was good but the weather was not on our side so unfortunately we did not get to Robben Island, we went up Table Mountain but unfortunately did not see anything due to the cloud covering all the time. But the V & A waterfront was great with lots of great restaurants and entertainment. The full day tour we did was great our host Michelle was awesome with great knowledge and a lot of fun for the day.

Obviously Sabi Savannah was the greatest highlight, the service and food as I said was impeccable, our game driver Jamie and trakker Ronald were amazing. Their knowledge and information was excellent, they showed us some amazing animals and we even experienced seeing a leopard kill on the first game drive. I could go on for ever with the animals as they certainly were amazing.

It was sad that we actually had to leave but time to save again and go back with our grandchildren as they would love these experiences. 

Thank you once again for a holiday of a life time.

– Jo-anne and Shane Foley
