John and Marlene P.
It was an amazing trip! Anouk planned it beautifully….we never had to worry a minute about pick ups – itinerary – accommodations. We wanted this trip to be perfect and planned by someone who really knew Africa. We have used many travel agents in past, but having Anouk’s expertise was invaluable.
All our accommodations were excellent. We had one camp that we had some issues with, however, the people there were so wonderful in resolving them, that I hesitate to complain at all. Meals were excellent. We loved Simbambili and Machaba! Our favorite meal was in Franschhoek at Franschhoek Country House. I had the tempura mussels that were amazing so I had to ask the chef for the recipe. As I prefer fish/seafood…..Cape Town’s dinners were perfect. All of our guides were excellent. We loved Doug and Vushi at Simbambili, Chief at Savuti and Rock at Machaba. My husband was having some medical issues while we were there and guides/staff/management went above and beyond to ensure we had the perfect vacation. All of African Portfolio’s representatives were very knowledgeable and professional….and fun!
Anouk, thank you so much for such a memorable holiday. We have visited 39 countries and this is our most special trip by far.
