How many safari companies did you consider before selecting AFRICAN PORTFOLIO?
Three or Four
How would you describe your accommodation, facilities and meals?
Gomoti Plains, Machaba, and Elephant camp. Tents were great. Food was great. Attention to my wife’s food allergies was surprisingly great. Guides at Machaba and Gomoti were fantastic. Bush Dinners at same were a great touch and added a wow factor to our dinners.
How would you evaluate your safari guides and staff?
Lister at Gomoti was the best guide we had. Great personality, knowledge off the charts and tracking abilities that had us finding everything first. Kitso at Machaba was also very good and aggressive at getting us the best views. Staff were great at both but overall stronger at Machaba. Manager at Machaba (forgot name but it was a Dutch lady) was incredible. Couldn’t have provided better service.
Was there anything you would have liked more of, less of, or done differently?
Not really, Loved Vic falls but wouldn’t do it again. Glad we did it once, however.
What was your most memorable moment in Africa?
Floating on a mokoro as almost 100 elephants crossed the river all around us. Near Machaba camp.
If you could give future travelers one word of advice, what would it be?
Get straight to safari.
