My husband and I, both seniors, opted for this budget safari even though the company warned us that our traveling companions would much younger than us and that the tour was geared to a younger age bracket. We took the 7 day Cape to Addo tour in January 2014 and we enjoyed every minute of it. Our driver and guide Nico picked us in Hermanus where we were staying with friends and we then met our traveling companions. They hailed from Argentina, Brazil, the UK and the Netherlands, and we all enjoyed one another's company throughout the entire trip. We spent 7 interesting and adventure filled days together. The program was varied, balanced, and interesting. We watched our companions bungee jump from the Bloukrans bridge, joined them zip lining, hiking, and swimming in some of the beautiful beaches where we stopped along the way. The itinerary followed the Garden Route and included visits to many natural wonders, such as the Cango Caves. Our trip culminated in the visit of Addo Elephant Park where we took an early morning game drive with a park ranger during which we saw lions, tens of elephants, jackals, zebras, etc, followed by another drive with Nico who took us to another section of the park where we saw many more wild animals. The accommodations where we spent the nights were all comfortable, clean, and well situated. The guest house at Sedgefield was located near the beautiful Myoli beach where the owner of the company Gavin, and Nico our guide drove us before dinner, for a memorable swim in the sunset. Everything about this trip was enjoyable and Nico spent a lot of energy to insure that everyone was comfortable and had a good time. His efforts were successful. It was a wonderful trip.
