My husband and I recently returned from South Africa. Sandy and her team at Hills of Africa Travel put together a spectacular travel plan that included two beautiful and luxurious safari camps (Tintswalo and Londolozi) and several days in Cape Town.
The attention to detail was just wonderful. There were notes and special touches at each camp, including a birthday cake and South African dancers at our first camp to specifically celebrate my husband’s birthday. It was so special.
We had a private tour guide in Cape Town that works with Sandy. Our guide picked us up each morning with one day being a tour of the winelands and the other day we spent touring the Cape of Good Hope. Sandy arranged for us to have a private lunch at the home of one of the top 10 chefs in South Africa, Bruce Robertson. Hills of Africa was also able to procure reservations to the top restaurant in Cape Town, including The Test Kitchen. BOTH EXPERIENCES WERE UNBELIEVABLE AND THEY WOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED WITHOUT SANDY’S CONTACTS!!
Sandy makes you feel like an insider, not a tourist. We felt so taken care of. There was no detail overlooked with her planning. She sent us emails almost weekly updating us prior to our trip with information on how to pack and other details that were just essential for the trip planning. My husband and I have traveled all over the world and by FAR the trip that Sandy put together was our favorite. She has put together trips for our friends and the response has been equally as enthusiastic. She has such passion for what she does.
