Superior at Chobe Lodge, Moremi Camp and Xugana Camp. Outstanding at at Cape Cadagon Hotel. Safari Lodge in Victoria Falls was excellent.
What and where was your favorite meal of the trip?
Meals were a bit of a challenge for me as I am not an adventurous eater and don’t like spicy food. My favorite meal was at a restaurant in Cape Town that served familiar food. That said, the breakfasts and brunches as the three camps were excellent.
