It is always a grateful moment when we receive a testimonial from a client that includes “beyond what was expected” in their note. VIP clients of Sandy Lipkowitz with We Make Travel Easy just returned from a 10 day trip to South Africa and Zimbabwe and this is what they had to say: “The trip was amazing. Cape Town was a blast and the tour guide was great. The Safari has to be one of the best activities we have ever done. We got to see all the big 5 animals and the food/lodge was beyond what we expected. The lodge also was one of the best hotels we have every stayed at. Victoria Falls was great too. Everything on the trip went smoothly and had no issues with any part of the trip.”

Beginning their trip in Cape Town, they stayed at the O on Kloof Boutique Hotel – a five-star hotel offering a mix of slick urban design and shimmering sea views even from the dining area.

There is no better way to see the Cape Peninsula than doing a private tour. From the Cape Point with it’s spectacular views to Boulders Beach full of penguins, this is a day full of adventure and lots of pictures.

Then you can spend your day exploring the city of Cape Town with the imposing Castle of Good Hope to the colorful cottages of the Bo-Kaap, the bustling Green Market Square, the South African Museum, the beautiful Company Gardens and plenty more to see.

Next stop is the Dulini River Lodge in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve. Embraced in the riverine grandeur of ancient ebony trees, the lodge exudes a sense of indulgence true to the long-standing safari tradition.

The enthralling elevation of the suites, offers inspiring views over the regal Sand River, to the savannah beyond. Each suite, set in a private riverine enclave, offers the luxury of a heated plunge pool and the lavish attention of a personal butler, thus enhancing the indulgence in the African ambience.

Exhilarating encounters with wildlife, sincere hospitality and amazing food are what make Dulini River Lodge an unforgettably enriching experience.

Victoria Falls and the Batonka Guest Lodge await you for the final 2 nights of the tour in Zimbabwe. From the sunset cruise on the Zambezi River to a private tour of the Falls, it is your time to explore the grandeur and charm of Zimbabwe.

 When David Livingstone first saw Victoria Falls in 1865 he was in the company of 2 local tribesmen who showed him this Mighty Wonder of World. This site today is a world heritage site with the largest single curtain of falling water on the planet, also known as “The Smoke that Thunders.” No photograph can begin to depict the reality, and nothing prepares you for your first sight. 

VIP treatment from the time you land in South Africa until you depart for your international flights home is what is waiting for you, so let us know when you want to start YOUR amazing journey! Call us at 800-940-9344.
