13 Day Southern African Safari Reviewe

Susan Smith from United States travelled with Discover Africa in June 2023

Knowledgeable, Professional, Terrific!

Our trip was the trip of a lifetime! Spending two nights in Johannesburg after arrival gave us time to recover from the flight and get ready for our safari. Kapama was terrific! Our guides Jeffrey and Kenneth were knowledgeable, friendly and, truly, the best ever! We were “right there with the animals” as Jeffrey explained the animal’s actions and reactions. He took us “off-road” searching for the leopard knowing it was in the vicinity. The staff was superb, the food choices were outstanding and our lodging was wonderful!

Xakamapa had excellent tent accommodations and was with a resident hippo adding an exotic touch. The food, staff and safari team were great!

Chobe was more of a high-end hotel with terrific amenities. Beautiful grounds and settings and creative, delicious buffets. On our safaris, we saw herds of elephants swimming and protecting the babies. We saw a pride of lions stalking buffalo and many other animals.

We enjoyed Victoria Falls but were in the area only overnight.

I also visited one of the local villages which was quite an education. These people are poor and work hard. Unemployment is rampant! Most of the workers in these camps work for two months straight and then go “home” for approximately 12 days. The majority of them also have children who are cared for mostly by their grandmothers. These workers (and their families) need these tips from the tourists to survive.

I would like to suggest that more people visiting Africa visit these villages and schools for a variety of reasons.

We usually make our own travel plans. This was the first time someone else has guided us. Susan was perfect! Everything was timely, safe and well thought out! She answered multiple questions and was a great support! Thank you, Susan! Well Done!
