We had a great time on our first African holiday! We were very pleased with our overall experience with your service and itinerary. You were professional and prompt in responding to my questions and changes and the documents you provided helped us prepare for and enjoy our holiday to the fullest. We appreciate all your help and will definitely recommend you to anyone looking for an African holiday travel planner.
The Azura safari was amazing and we would highly recommend it to anyone. We were a bit spoiled, being the only family in the camp, but the service and food were exceptional throughout our stay. Our game driver was very friendly and engaging with our entire family. He seemed to have the eyesight of an eagle and we saw quite a few animals even though we were there at the end of the safari season. There were plenty of zebra, impala, and giraffe but we also had a few sightings of leopards, elephants, monkeys, baboons, and the wild dogs. The staff also made an extra effort to track the lions that had eluded us the first couple of days so that we were able to see them. It rained during the early evening of our night safari and the camp manager was honest about the potential lack of game but we managed to find a few hippos (out of water), a hyena, and a huge porcupine which even the drivers were excited to see. There was a lot of driving around to find the more rare animals though; I actually liked that it was a bit of a hunt but some people may prefer more guaranteed sightings.
As for the lodging, it was quite comfortable. The location on the river's edge was beautiful and peaceful, although at times also quite noisy due to the hippos. But again, I enjoyed the noise as it made me feel like I really was in the bush! I truly cannot think of any complaints regarding this part of our trip. The flies out on game drives were a major nuisance and the few large spiders that were ever-present in our cabin were a source of concern for my daughter (who is scared of them) but that was somewhat expected and nothing I would fault against the camp. Overall, I'd say we definitely had a 5-star experience at Azura.
As for us, we are ready to start planning our next holiday! We are interested in going to South Africa in December but I don't see that listed as one of the travel destinations on your website. Do you plan South Africa itineraries and if not, is there another travel planning company that you might recommend?
