We booked our trip through an online site and were so excited to visit one of the most special countries in the world. We left a piece of our hearts in South Africa and can't wait for a return trip one day.
Vic was so great and accommodating - we had to change some dates and had to shift out travel plans and Vic was more than happy to help. We shared many emails and a couple of phone calls and never had a single negative moment. We had the pleasure of meeting Vic and sharing a drink and he's every bit as cool in person.
Chase was a great guide and awesome guy all around. We would definitely be great mates if not in separate countries. He even took the time to take us to a local Kruger pub and watch the Rugby. The early morning walk was a pleasure and the guy knows his stuff!
Robert was an amazing guide and has the eyes of an Eagle. He made every Game drive an amazing experience and was so dedicated to showing us all of the Big 5. A genuine and lovely guy.
The rest of RKL was just as great and we loved the feeling of the place. Eating in a community setting at night was always fun.
We loved that there was no TV in the room and think this is so great. We spent much of our days in the communal area chatting with other guests, drinking tea and watching the local Warthog, Horatio. We hand fed Zebras, saw a troop of Baboons messing about and watched a magical pair of Kudu passing through - all from the chairs in the tea area.
The rooms were clean and always kept very tidy. Our clothes were folded and the bed was nice and comfy.
Can't wait to go back! Sorry it took us so long to write this review Vic! Hope to see you again soon
