I was extremely happy with it all and my group was most impressed.The itinerary worked very well and worked up to the high, that is Kirkmans Kamp. Sighted all the Big 5 and so much more and just before we left Kirkmans for home, we sighted and spent time watching 2 males and a lioness walking through the bush, resting, walking past our vehicles on their way to Sand river.
What a way to finish, no wonder everyone came home on a high!! Kirkmans is just wonderful and I would recommend it as guests last stay in South Africa, such a high to leave on. They have had great sightings of two packs of painted dogs with puppies, we have great photos of 1 pack and of course the two leopard cubs (which we did not see, saw the mum), lions, buffalo, cheetah, hyena, elephants, hippos, zebra, wart hogs, birds, impala, mongoose and baboons. We actually have photos of a buffalo kill by lions and leopard kill of impala and a hyena who had stole some kill…
The 12 seater was great for 10, allowed a little space, would be a little tight for 12 especially on the long drive day from Knysna to Capetown. I liked Hermanus, whales were sighted and … We all loved the Featherbed tour in Knysna and what a stunning coastline to photograph. Commodore Capetown was great. Chobe provided all the highlights for elephant, hippos, giraffe, lions, monkeys, buffalo and birdlife and the evening sunset cruise was lovely… New airport at Skukuza is lovely. Wayne…. I can see why you just need to keep going back! This itinerary [Garden Route, Vic Falls/Chobe, Kruger] is a good introduction to South Africa for anyone wanting a two week+ itinerary. Michelle, thanks for your prompt and efficient service to my group requests, much appreciated.
