How would you rate your trip overall? Excellent

What was the most important reason for choosing AFRICAN PORTFOLIO? Expertise and Referral
It was a pleasure to work with Vanessa. She made everything easy!

How many safari companies did you consider before selecting AFRICAN PORTFOLIO? None

How would you rate AFRICAN PORTFOLIO’S representatives in Africa?
Botswana: Excellent

What additional information (if any) would you have liked to receive prior to your departure from home? I think it would be helpful for those who wear contact lenses to make sure they do not wear multi focus lenses on safari. I thought about this and took distance disposable lenses and it was the best thing I could have done for my vision.
Also, we did not pay enough attention to the electric adapters but we were able to buy them in the Johannesburg airport.

How would you describe your accommodation, facilities and meals?
Cape Grace – perfect
Duba Explorer – our favorite camp
Selinda Camp- very nice
Chitabe – best animal sightings, more strict atmosphere

What and where was your favorite meal of the trip?
The food at the Duba camp was exceptional

How would you evaluate your safari guides and staff?
BT at Duba was so kind and very knowledgeable. He talked to us the most, which I enjoyed learning from him.
Donald at Selinda was really good about getting us close to the animals – very adventurous!
Gordan at Chitabe was very kind and he also worked really hard to make sure we saw beautiful animals

Was there anything you would have liked more of, less of, or done differently? Not really

What was your most memorable moment in Africa?
Hanging out with a pride of 16 lions watching all the baby cubs play together. It was amazing.

If you could give future travelers one word of advice, what would it be?
Layers in the winter! We were totally prepared because Vanessa told me many times what I would need. There wasn’t anything we did not have that we needed.
