Hi George and Chrissie,
Sorry to be just getting back to you, but having recovered from jet lag and seeing grandchildren, we having been busy organizing
pictures, to show everyone.
We had a fantastic time throughout our trip. We thought starting at Vic Falls was a good introduction as to what we were to see in
the coming days. We did the elephant safari, visited the falls and befriended Sylvester. Everyone was so nice and welcomed you
in a warm way.
Our next stop, Chobe game lodge, gave us a full schedule to follow and the sights blew us away. We saw every animal that one could
expect to see and some we never expected. It was great to see the wild life on the river as well as on the game drives.
At Savute we had a tent in front of a water hole where all the elephants and giraffes would stop for drinks. Again here and at Moremi I
think we were lucky to see all the animals we saw and a couple kills besides.
The weather was unusually hot for a few days, but it felt good traveling in the jeeps. The food was very good and we got to taste some
of the game. The facilities were very good and we were impressed with all the workers, guides, cooks, etc and how friendly and
enthusiastic they all were, always there to welcome you and to say goodbye on leaving.
We spent 3 nights at the VA hotel in CT. We had a full day tour and traveled to Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point, saw the seals,
penquines and lunched at the Cape. We also did the hop on hop off, stopped at the local market and had lunch at Camps Bay, but did not
get up to Table Mt., because of wind. Lastly, we had 2 nights at Majeka and visited FrenchHoek for lunch. Made stops at Lamotte,Delaire Graff, Rickety Bridge and 3 others.
We also had lunch at the Big Easy in Stellenbosch. We didn’t get to see the whales at Hermanus or your neighborhood.
This trip of a lifetime far exceeded our expectations. The highlight at the end of our trip was to meet Gelle. She came to the Majeka
and gave us a ride into Stellenbosch. There was not one snag in our travel plans. Everyone expected us on arrival, the small planes
were always there on time, the tour guides in CT and Stellenbosch were fully informed on our wishes and we believed it was all the
result of Gelle’s good planning. She selected wonderful camps and organized it perfectly, starting at Vic Falls and ending in the wine
We thank you so much for recommending Gelle. Sometime those recommendations don’t work out, but this was a winner.
Hope to se you in our travels,
Jack & Judy ( USA ) September 2014
