Holiday review by Simon Whitton

Name: Mr Simon Whitton
Date of trip: 21/10/2015
Number of people: 2
Country: South Africa

Overall level of Satisfaction

 
Tribes Overall: "The best game viewing ever at Leopard Hills - wild dogs (family of 21), lion cubs, baby elephant, leopard ( with kill ), cheetah rhino hippos etc etc. Sea too rough at Hermanus for whale boat trip but had a four hour guided land tour and saw many whales Cape Town was as good as ever Overall it exceeded our expectations"
 
Tribes Service: "The whole service has been outstanding - it is so comforting to know you are being met in airports etc - particularly Jo'Burg which I still find confusing when changing terminals All the staff at all 3 venues were very welcoming and do genuinely want to help "
 
Guides: "Guide ( Hugo ) at Leopard Hills was excellent in all respects and kept finding everything we asked to see ! Because of boat cancellation the Manager ( Belinda ) at 138 Marine fix a trip for us with David de Beer Southern Right whale expert and photographer which was a very good alternative to being on the water "

Accommodation

 
Leopard Hills Private Game Reserve
By far the best camp we have stayed in - excellent food in a stunning location Most attentive staff - nothing was too much trouble And they had Sky TV !
 
Four Rosmead
As good as last time - the managers are so helpful in arranging/suggesting trips and booking restaurants etc. Do check the adjoining building works for future guests !

Our Memories

"Almost too many to list but seeing the Wild Dog family playing together was the highlight but so were the lion cubs fighting over a stick and finding the Cheetah on our last drive !"
