Crystal Wealth clients enjoy trip to Africa
Here’s their story:
“Our adventure encompassed a wide range of experiences including South African political history (the Mandela museum in Pretoria), the vast diversity of poverty and wealth and of course the spectacular countryside and wildlife. There are so many wonderful memories from this trip – far too many to document in this article!
“Our three-week holiday began with a view of the Antarctic from the plane window. We arrived in Johannesburg, and after a couple of days we flew to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe.
“We gasped at the variety of wildlife that frequented the waterhole, which was around 150 metres from our accommodation. We walked around the falls (wow, the power of water), flew over the falls (amazing) and had high tea near the falls at the Victoria Falls Hotel.
“The conclusion of our stay here was highlighted by a cruise on the Zambezi river. Beautiful sunset and lots of hippos and crocodiles for the photo enthusiasts.
“Following this, we spent two weeks on safari in the Masi Mara where we got to see all ‘the big five’ – elephant, leopard, lion, rhino and water buffalo.
“Our expert drivers negotiated some really tough terrain, the challenges of some areas making us feel 21 again!
“The drivers also liaised with each other to spot game and to acquire the best vantage point to view the animals. I think we saw an animal for every letter of the alphabet including a huge flock of flamingos and a family of mongoose.
“Our accommodation throughout was excellent – especially “glamping”. We found the people extremely friendly and at no time did we feel intimidated or unsafe.
“There are not enough superlatives to describe our experiences and we hope one day to return to this magical place.”
