Itinerary Review for Kruger National Park, Cape Town and Mauritius By Charlotte C
Stress-free, Amazing Trip
This is an independent review by Charlotte From Hong Kong who traveled to Kruger National Park, Cape Town and Mauritius in February 2018.
Kelli Leibbrandt was Charlotte's consultant
It was our first time visiting South Africa and it was definitely one of the best trips we've ever had! We travel a lot however this is the first time we planned a trip with a travel agency. I have always wanted to go on a safari and when I first started looking into available options, I got overwhelmed because there are just so many of them. I submitted a few quotation requests with the same criteria to different travel agencies, and I was impressed by Safari365's prompt & professional response but still wanted to shop around. However, after speaking with a Travel Specialist from Safari365 and seeing the customized preliminary itinerary, I knew that Safari365 would be my pick. Within a few hours after submitting my quotation request to Safari365, I was assigned a Travel Specialist from Safari365; Kelli Leibbrandt. My time zone is 6 hours ahead of where Kelli is and with my busy work schedule, every time we had to jump on a call close to the end of Kelli's office hours. Despite that, she was very patient and explained to me clearly everything that I was unsure of - I really appreciated her help on that. A day later I got my customized preliminary itinerary from Kelli and I was really happy with it already, but because we are so excited to see everything with a very limited time (our trip was only 10 days), we changed the itinerary a few times before we finalized it. Kelli was very helpful all along! Safari365 has access to a lot of reputable vendors that you might not know of and this is where I valued their service a lot as an independent customer. The safari was full-board so all you have to do is show up and enjoy! We stay at one of the lodges in Sabi Sands Game Reserve for 2 nights and then travelled from Kruger to Cape Town for another 3 nights before we headed off to Mauritius. If there are any road transfers scheduled for your trip, the drivers will be in touch with your hotel so it's completely worry-free - all that we encountered were professional and the cars are in great condition. The trip is highly flexible & customizable - you just need to communicate ahead of time to make it work. All in all, every dollar we spent on this trip was worth it and I would recommend this place to all my friends & family. I will definitely pick Safari365 again for my next African Adventure as well. I'm looking forward to receiving my complimentary photo book from Safari365!!
