As a couple of octogenarians, we sometimes wondered if we may have bitten off more than we could chew, while we were in the final stages of planning for
our African Safari with The Tour Company. We needn't have worried! Their African colleagues were absolutely amazing, and once we reached Africa, everything
fell into place, and we had the most marvellous experience. Our tour guides were quite exceptional - knowledgeable, experienced, with excellent vehicles,
and really they couldn't do enough to help us. As for our accomodations - we were a little worried in the planning stages about "Tent Camps" but what
luxury? The various lodges, camps, and hotels, were absolutely superb, and added hugely to our enjoyment. We saw the most amazing animals - a pride
of 9 lions walked about 10 meters away from us - elephants galore - giraffes every day, and to top it all, two BLACK Rhinos, and they are nearly extinct.
Too many wonderful sights for us to tell you about. We saw :The Big Five" game animals on at least 3 different days. We also walked with Cheetahs -
what magnificent animals. And another highlight was our visit to the Victoria Falls - what a majestic sight! This trip far exceeded our expectations,
and we give it our most hearty recommendation to anyone thinking about the holiday of a lifetime - you are in for a real treat - so go for it!
