How would you rate your trip overall? Excellent
Comment: Loved everything. Only a few very minor suggestions because of course you would expect that.
What was the most important reason for choosing AFRICAN PORTFOLIO? Other
Please Specify Refered by Barbara Mann of New Canaan travel years ago for a trip to South Africa.
Comment: Was very pleased with previous trip. Referred my niece and nephew Sam and Jed Dolce to you for their honeymoon to South Africa a few years ago. They were very please with their trip too.
How many safari companies did you consider before selecting AFRICAN PORTFOLIO? None
Comment: I don’t know about any specifics. Just assumed you were good at all.
What additional information (if any) would you have liked to receive prior to your departure from home? More detailed clothing options. Websites and specifics clothing manufactures. Not familiar with them and took a lot of research and time to put together correctly.
How would you describe your accommodation, facilities and meals? Please provide the name of the hotel, lodge or camp you are describing. Excellent except not that thrilled by the crater or accommodations.  Thought both were creepy. Crater looked like aliens had landed. Hotel looked like Adams Family home. BUT – so glad I went to see the rhino. Sure it was the nicest place, so happy I stayed there. People were nice and food was good but had been spoiled by Singita!
What and where was your favorite meal of the trip? Loved both Singita.
How would you evaluate your safari guides and staff? Please provide the name of the person you are describing. Excellent
Rhonda – Stephan
Sasakwa – Paul (visiting from another Singita) and Daniel. Paul is a great birder – wow!!
Mara River – Robert
Crater – Gabriel
Nairobi – ok. Cannot remember guide name. Very brief and I was tired. He was very nice and fine. I liked that we had a driver too because we had luggage in car the whole time. Driver could watch.
Was there anything you would have liked more of, less of, or done differently? Going from Sasakwa to Mara River would have done community walk in am then fly early afternoon then do afternoon game drive at Mara rather than fly in am if that would have been possible. Might have done Mara River before Sasakwa if that had been an option. But I don’t think it was.
We added monkey trekking on 2nd Rhonda day. Surprised that wasn’t there originally. Would have been a boring day of transit otherwise.
What was your most memorable moment in Africa? Gorilla trekking and wanting 9 lion cubs. Think it’s great we did gorillas first. Very thrilling and brief but great way to begin vacation.
If you could give future travelers one word of advice, what would it be? Stay at a Singita if you can! They are a fortune but really make the trip in terms of accommodations, service, including guides, and guests (who are always fascinating.)
