Ive always wanted to go on a Safari. It was truly amazing. We say almost every animal to include some beautiful Elephants. The meal provided with the tour was delicious. If I have an opportunity to go again, I'd love to stay at the resort.

We booked a tour from Cape Town to Vic Falls via the internet. Communication was quick, professional, and very friendly. I can highly recommend this travel agency to book your trips in Africa.
