From the moment I landed in Port Elizabeth every moment was perfectly planned. The very first afternoon I was on a safari seeing the amazing animals roaming free. I learned so much and will treasure each moment. I loved the itinerary. The beautiful garden route and the fabulous accommodations in each destination. Not to mention the wonderful food and fabulous wine. My trip to South Africa was more than I’d dreamed it would be. Thank you!
