How would you rate your trip overall? Excellent
What was the most important reason for choosing AFRICAN PORTFOLIO? Referral
How many safari companies did you consider before selecting AFRICAN PORTFOLIO? One or Two
How would you describe your accommodation, facilities and meals? Please provide the name of the hotel, lodge or camp you are describing. All accommodations were wonderful.  The only issue with the Cape Grace Hotel was a strange odor in the corridor leading from the lobby to the dining room.  We never mentioned anything but it smelled like sewage.
What and where was your favorite meal of the trip? Our favorite meal in Capetown was at the Black Sheep.  Such delicious food and wonderful staff. The food at Victoria Falls River Lodge was good and the waitstaff was very accommodating and friendly.  The meals at Sabi Sabi Little Bush camp were exceptional.  Chef Dick was fantastic and we were most thrilled by the South African brai (bbq) he prepared for us in the boma outside.  A truly memorable evening.
How would you evaluate your safari guides and staff? Please provide the name of the person you are describing. Stephen in Capetown was such a fun guide.  We loved having him with us.  In Victoria Falls, we loved our guide, Polite.  He took such good care of us every day. At Sabi Sabi we were very pleased with Frederik, Angelique, Goodwill and Zeblon.  They were informative and fun.
Was there anything you would have liked more of, less of, or done differently? It was a very active trip.  Perhaps a little more down time would have been welcome.
What was your most memorable moment in Africa? Waking up one morning to find a herd of elephants drinking the water from our plunge pool!
If you could give future travelers one word of advice, what would it be? Don’t buy all the suggested safari gear.  Most regular clothing would work fine on safari. Also, be forewarned that many people have a bad reaction to malaria pills.  My daughter was violently throwing up after the second day of pills.  I was only nauseous but uncomfortable enough to stop taking the pills.
