7 nights Cape Town | 4 nights Sabi Sand | 2 nights Nairobi
We are still basking in the afterglow of a truly wonderful trip and we can’t thank you enough for all of your help! As promised, here is some detailed feedback on our experiences:
The Cape Grace hotel was an extraordinary place to stay during our time in Cape Town! The staff there make the service very personal, always remembering your name and all of your preferences at cocktail and meal times. There was nothing they wouldn’t help us with and they made the service seem effortless.
It is impossible to overstate what a profoundly beautiful experience we had at Londolozi Tree Camp. The accommodations are spacious, airy, and exquisite. The staff provide service in the most personal way, to the highest standards, and yet make it look effortless. From the moment you arrive, they remember your name, your preferences, and they make you feel like the most important visitor they have.
Hotel One Forty Eight is truly a hidden gem in Nairobi! The buildings and grounds are beautiful! From the moment we arrived, Ruth Wairuri made us feel like family. The level of service equalled that of Londolozi and the food was similarly fresh, unfussy, and deeply satisfying. Our visit to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust was MAGICAL! Fostering one of the babies is not expensive and it entitles you to the opportunity to see them come in for their last bottle and we put to bed.
We had low expectations of the giraffe preserve, and it surpassed them by far! The guides there (Roy was our guide) are knowledgeable and enthusiastic about what they do. We ate lunch art Boho one day, a very small eatery at the end of a bumpy road in a residential area not far from the hotel, and it was superb! We ate lunch another day at Talisman, which was very upscale and a lovely experience. Delicious food served by dignified waiters on a patio in the shade of trees.
Our experiences with Kenya Air were all excellent. The service they provided was far better than that of any American airline, including comparisons to other flights we’ve taken in first class. They were professional, pleasant, and exceedingly solicitous.
Thank you again for your help in planning our once-in-a-lifetime trip!
