The true highlight of the trip was the time spent in Kapama Southern Camp on safari. Every day that we were there was special, unique, luxurious, and so much fun! The staff really cared about meeting our every need, and we constantly felt pampered and special. Each game drive was unique, and we saw SO MANY birds and animals. In addition, the giraffes (my favorite), elephants (obviously my mom’s favorite), uncountable antelopes, and the rest of the big five. We caught a glimpse of a leopard and had an up-close sighting of a cheetah! We had a private catered lunch near the watering hole one day, and they sang for my mom’s birthday and gave her a special cake. These mealtime “extras” once again made us feel special, important, and loved.
The Elephant Experience at Jabulani was unbelievably fun. We all had a blast learning about, touching, feeding, and interacting with the elephants. Afterward, my mom said that day was now in her “Top Five Days of My Life” list! It is hard to put into words the immense joy, gratitude, and awe we all felt while in the presence of huge and gentle elephants. Even in our short interaction, you could tell each animal had its own personality. It seemed like the elephants also enjoyed the experience. Seeing both wild and sanctuary elephants were highlights for all of us, but the extra time at Jabulani getting to truly experience the elephants was a spectacular addition.
The success of this trip was largely thanks to your work, planning, and excellent recommendations, I could not have pulled this off without you, Rochelle! The little details, the airport escorts, the secluded and individualized meals, and the luxury of upgraded flights were the icing on the cake that was the trip of a lifetime. We all had the best time and could not identify anything we would have changed to make it better. It is hard to express the level of my gratitude for your planning and execution of this amazing experience. THANK YOU! I know who I will be connecting with to figure out my next grand adventure.
