From start to finish our trip was incredible
From start to finish our trip was incredible.
We are a family of 7 who travelled from Sydney to Johannesburg, Zambia, Tanzania, Kenya and a stop over in Dubai on the way home.
Julie from Bench Africa arranged everything, from flights, meet and greet, transfers and accomodation and every single detail was covered and ran like clock work.
All up we had 12 flights, some to very remote airstrips and without fail, there was always a smiling face at the other end to meet us and transfer us to the next destination.
In Zambia we were lucky enough to stay at Baines River Camp, this place is simply amazing. From the accomodation, the food, the staff, and of course our guide Weston, everything was 5 star.
Then onto to Tanzania, we stayed at Lemala Ngorongoro Camp and Sergengeti Wilderness Camp, both were beautiful with amazingly warm and friendly staff. Its hard to believe the facilities and food they provide in such remote settings but everything was so tasty and the tents were just perfect.
Last but not least we spent 2 nights at Karen Blixen Camp in Kenya - these tents are luxurious and very well appointed. The restaurant served up a fabulous selection of meals and the staff were very friendly and helpful. It was a little more commercialised than what we had experienced in the other locations, but we thoroughly enjoyed it and would highly recommend it to families.
Overall the entire trip was such an amazing experience for our whole family and I wouldn't change a thing.
Thankyou Bench Africa, you are an incredible team and we look forward to booking with you again.
