Unforgettable Moment #312

As tonight is our last in Cape Town, I pause to consider our wonderfully arranged tour. We enjoyed the quality of each of our accommodations and your guides. Our limited time in Johannesburg was well used to gain an overview of the country’s history. We are big fans of the quality of the Jackalberry Lodge, Thornybush Game Reserve, accommodations was outstanding and the safari staff and setting created a lifetime memory. Victory Falls and Zimbabwe was another both wonder of Africa and window into political damage. The Plett was a well-timed taste of relaxation, with Odtshoorn’s acccomodation alone made the trip there worthwhile- not to mention the ostriches and meerkats. The drive with good music exposed us to the wide-open spaces that define most of the country. In Cape Town, the tw0 hotels have been so well situated and with fine service. We have felt privileged to enjoy each of them.

Thank you for your ongoing care, we are grateful for all your efforts to enable our first trip to South Africa that was so rich in diverse and memorable experiences.
