The itinerary was excellent. You had the right mix of luxury and wilderness. The food was good all the way through, and in Chikwenya it was superb. The camps and lodges were all comfortable, including the river camps on the Zambezi canoe trip – quite an accomplishment considering that the crew had to strike camp and set it up each day. The river trip was a never to be forgotten experience. The transfers between places were well managed with minimal hassle.
Chikwenya was a wonderful place, with hides (blinds) to sit in for hours and watch the world pass you by. The Hide was a great spot in a secluded area of Hwange, a park which is, in other spots, very frequently visited. We rarely saw many other visitors in any area that weren’t staying in our own lodge or campsite. The scenery was stunning. Even the weather was perfect.
It was a great experience.
What an amazing trip! Thanks for including such variety in terms of ecosystems, geology, animals and climate. How you got all those creatures to co-operate I’ll never know, but now I feel much more comfortable selling Botswana, Zambia and even Namibia. The lodges and camps were outstanding, and I really enjoyed seeing a lot by air too! Thanks!
This trip is better than the last and that was a hard trip to beat! We will come back to Call of Africa!
Ann and I want you to know what a rich and fulfilling adventure you have given us in the last 10 days. From Arusha to Ngorongoro Caldera, to the tented camps on the Serengeti; every day has been memorable, each in a different way. The feast of eye-popping images of all the animals will be with us always! To live in their habitat as we mostly did is more than we expected.
Your easy manner, learned detail and descriptions, all with keen, personable anecdotes made great days – and, with a good measure of humor. This comes with our feeling that we have a good friend now in Cape Town and will say hi if we get there some day.
All the best and thanks!
Words cannot express my feeling about this trip, I loved every minute of it. Certainly the trip of my life time. Thanks so much for lighting up my life. I hope I can come again!
I dreamed of Africa and you presented experiences beyond the dream and over the imagination. It was sensational, adventurous and exquisite!! Thank you, thank you.
Our trip leader was an amazing person, I will always value his knowledge, enthusiasm and wisdom. I feel lucky to know him. The trip was perfect! I’ve travelled a lot, but don’t know when I’ve ever enjoyed a trip more. The wildlife and scenery made it all very special. The food was delicious and healthy!
Couldn’t imagine one thing better! Call of Africa helped us maximize on experiences by appraising and reminding us of risk – they gave clear instructions about ‘what to do’. It was the best put together trip we have ever been on! The order of experiences were wise – also the pacing. They are very, very good!
