ITINERARY


This was planned as the trip of a lifetime, and it was. It greatly exceeded expectations, especially in the safari experiences and in the richness of our guide experiences in Cape Town and Johannesburg, not to mention that we stayed in some of the best hotels and camps we have ever experienced. Extraordinary!
