How would you rate your trip overall? Excellent
Comment: Anouk built a great itinerary around our requests and interests. Every detail was managed and well communicated. And we had an absolute blast!
What was the most important reason for choosing AFRICAN PORTFOLIO? Anouk
Comment: It was obvious from the first phone call that Anouk was listening to us and as a result, made great recommendations on timing and locations
How many safari companies did you consider before selecting AFRICAN PORTFOLIO? Three or Four
How would you rate AFRICAN PORTFOLIO’S representatives in Africa? Botswana-Excellent / Tanzania-Excellent / Zimbabwe-Excellent
What additional information (if any) would you have liked to receive prior to your departure from home?
With 20/20 hindsight, it would have been good to have some info on “must do’s” for Cape Town. We enjoyed the city, but probably could have made better use of our time there.
Also emphasis on need for a reading light and/or good flashlight in small camps – once the generator is off, battery lamps give very weak light
