4-Day Kruger National Park Safari Tour from Johannesburg: Game Drives and Wilderness Walks

Johannesburg, South Africa

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This Tour was sensational although with travel time, 4 days is hardly enough. We stayed an extra 2. Our accommodation was not with the stated lodge but rather with Drifters Game Lodge. Lucky us! because we were spoiled rotten by a gorgeous couple Adrian and Kim. The resort is spectacular as well. Almost new with beautiful individual bungalows with ensuites, overlooking an amazing wide sandy riverbed. at times we had heards of Elephants meandering past along with the occasional Rhino or Water Buffalo. The food here was 5 star as well passionately prepared by James. They even baked me a birthday cake! Prices for drinks was very reasonable and R50 ($5) took care of the washing. As for the Safaris, their resident guide and tracker Karl showed his skills in hunting us down the 'big 5' plus a host of other animals and birds. I can thoroughly recommend this tour but strongly suggest you request to stay at Drifters Game Lodge

Sunset Zambezi River Cruise with Transport from Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The only reason for not getting 5 stars was because of the age of the boat but having said that, they were all the same. The content of the tour was fantastic. Drinks were not in short supply, the finger food was good but the hippos and the sunset were unforgettable. I could post my own photo but it would be identical to the one shown. Very enjoyable.

Victoria Falls Walking Tour

Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

What can I say. The Falls did all the talking. Spectacular. Worth it for us for the transfers plus the guides tend to fast track you through the sometimes busy entry gates. Don't let them talk you into the morning tour. The afternoons are when you'll get a rainbow in every photo.

Zimbabwean Dinner, Dancing and Bongo Drums Evening at Boma in Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This may not be everyone's cuppa but my wife and I loved it. The assortment of food will cover every taste. The lamb on the open fire was the masterpiece but don't overlook the Warthog. It in my opinion, is better than beef. (Tender and flavorsome). The bongo drums (which everyone gets one) were fabulous but there were a few people not into it. All in all a fun night. Reality is, what else are you going to do with you evening if you don't come here? It's not exactly a thriving metropolis.

Cape Town Super Saver: Cape Point Highlights Tour plus Wine Tasting in Stellenbosch

Cape Town, South Africa

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The Cape point Tour was fabulous. Heading down to the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point is a must. The drive down is very scenic. We came back via Simons Town which is where we had a lovely lunch and then went to see the penguins (small extra charge). The lowlight of the tour was the wine tasting. The winery we went to did cheeses as well, which far exceeded their wines. You know you're in trouble when you notice some wines for $2 a bottle. We had a much more enjoyable wine tasting from the hop on, hop off bus tour at Groot Constantine winery. If you can skip the winery tour my star rating would be 4 1/2

Singapore Zoo Morning Tour with optional Jungle Breakfast amongst Orangutans

Singapore, Singapore

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

A fabulous morning out. Starting with a comfortable Bus ride and arriving for a buffet breakfast of average quality, (although the selection was enormous),but getting straight into the Orangutan experience while you eat. Throw in a python to hold and you know this is not going to be your average day. The zoo is world class and very well laid out. All in all, a great experience.

Singapore by Night Tour with Dinner along Singapore River

Singapore, Singapore

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

While the sights of Singapore at night are spectacular, we weren't taken to the most spectacular which is the 15 minute Laser Light Show from the roof and foreshores of the Casino down at the Marina. The Deep Fried Chinese Restaurant dinner of Soft Shell Crab, Sweet and Sour Fish and Lemon Chicken came with rice, Brocolli and Sweet corn and Chicken soup....all tasty but for me, just a bit too much deep fried. Be warned that the cost of Alcohol at Clarke Quay is outrageous. $16 for a low tide glass of wine and over $10 for a beer. Water could be had for $1 per glass. Chinatown delivers much better value and quality food.
Bugis St markets were quite good. If you are on a limited time schedule it would be still worth doing.
