The S Family Safari

Full Name Matthew S.
How would you rate your trip overall? Excellent
Comment: An amazing life experience.  Cape Grace, Elephant Camp, & Chobe Game were amazing accommodations.  Nottens had some of the best service and people (and great with our kids), the facility could use some updating (bathrooms in particular).  Again some of the best memories and Safari
What was the most important reason for choosing AFRICAN PORTFOLIO? Expertise
Comment: It was important to have a travel partner that was familiar with the locations and what I was looking for
How many safari companies did you consider before selecting AFRICAN PORTFOLIO? Three or Four
Comment: Everyone that provided transport / transfers were great
What additional information (if any) would you have liked to receive prior to your departure from home? I thought we were very well prepped by Anouk
How would you describe your accommodation, facilities and meals? Please provide the name of the hotel, lodge or camp you are describing. Cape Grace – Awesome three bedroom suite
Nottens – Great people / great meals (loved the group meals), Room was good (bathroom was not great),
Elephant Camp – great experience with the tent / room – I think they should have put us in a ‘family’ tent – instead gave us two tents / rooms – did not see the family tent but think this worked out great
What and where was your favorite meal of the trip? Many…..
Nottens had a great cookout the night we got there – awesomeChobe had a dinner event outside down by the river / buffet style that was awesome

Great recommendation by Anouk for Cape Town –

How would you evaluate your safari guides and staff? Please provide the name of the person you are describing. I am really bad with names….. but our guide for two days in CapeTown was great

Otherwise – our Safari guide in Nottens was awesome

Was there anything you would have liked more of, less of, or done differently? One less day in Kruger – one more day in Chobe / Vic Falls
What was your most memorable moment in Africa? Safari – very cool
If you could give future travelers one word of advice, what would it be? I would typically do arrangements by myself – this  is a trip where you do want all pickups / transfers organized.  Having someone there at border crossings was invaluable.
