First of all you have a beautiful country with very friendly people. I have been looking forward to giving you a full report of our trip. All the connections, tours, and accommodations worked out perfectly. I have already posted tripadivor reviews for Idube and Table Bay. Since we have been back we have been trying to organize our photos (over 2,000 pics!). We are looking forward to sharing them with our friends and family.
The tour guide for the Cape Point trip was excellent. His name is Collin and I would highly recommend him for future tours. Actually, the drivers for all our transfers were excellent. Personable, accommodating and knowledgeable. For me the highlight of the trips was Idube! The staff, our ranger (Rob), and the tracker (Lonnet) were unbelievable. We got lucky as it was just the four of us in the vehicle and we basically had a private tour with Rob and Lonnet every day. It was nice that Rob had breakfast with our family each morning, really enjoyed that personal touch (I did not notice other guides doing that). Of course the animals were breathtaking. We got so close to the animals and Rob made sure we got great pictures and were in the best spots for sunrises and sunsets.
The rooms at all the hotels that you recommended fit our needs perfectly. Royal Livingstone was beautiful and everyone liked the grounds and the resort (dining options a bit limited, we ate at the RL twice and took a shuttle to Zambeizi Sun). But the falls were stunning and we walked to the park everyday and took photos and hiked around - again, very convenient. The location of Table Bay could not have worked out better. The boys walked around the shopping mall for a couple of hours and we found nice restaurants within walking distance. They upgraded our room and we had a stunning view of the harbor and Table Mountain. I thought the breakfast at each place was excellent, great selection and great service at all three places.
Our family truly appreciates the time you took with us in planning our trip. Tammy and I are already trying to talk several friends into a return visit (if the airfares ever come down in price). If we do we would think of using no other agent than yourself!
