Reviews for Cape Town to Victoria Falls holiday in South Africa


review 15 Jan 2016

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

For me the National Parks were always going to be the highlight and they didn't disappoint. Etosha and Chobe are so different from each other but both have lots of interesting animals. We saw a cheetah family with a fresh kill, several black rhino, more giraffe and elephants than you could ever hope for and a good number of hippos at Chobe too. We also had some very dramatic weather in the shape of two major thunderstorms, made all the more exciting/scary by the fact we were camping. Some wonderful sunsets and mostly great campsites.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Read the trip notes! Take the currency they suggest ie SARand plus USDollars. The guide will help you get the Pula for Botswana so not need to worry about that and you can use SARand in Namibia. Take malaria tabs from Swakopmund onwards, and use a good anti-mossie spray. Take an elastic camping washing line with hooks on the end, and a head torch.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes we supported local bars and the food we ate was sourced locally from each place. Most of the bigger sites had good recycling systems and were cleaned. The trips and transport were provided by local people.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

It was good (excellent bar the stomach bug and the window of the bus breaking), well organised - an experience!
