Trip Report Our African Adventure

Jump to last reply

My DH and I just returned from our African Adventure. We started with 10 days in Cape Town. We rented a car and had a fabulous time exploring the area. We then flew to Johannesburg and started a trip arranged by Africa Travel Resource. Everything went very smoothly which was especially good considering how many border crossings we did. We went to South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Tanzania and Kenya. We stayed in the following lodges/camps:

South Africa- Arathusa/Sabi Sands
Zambia- Toka Leya/Livingstone
Zimbabwe- Victoria Falls Hotel
Botswana- Muchenje Lodge/Chobe
Tanzania- Serenra Ngorongoro and Olakira Mara Camp
Kenya- Offbeat Mara Camp

We found the photos on the ATR website to be pretty true to reality. We were very pleased with all of our accommodation choices. We joined in the lodge activities everywhere except Ngorongoro where we had our own driver/guide.

If you would like to know more about our trip, please visit Each country has its own tab at the top of the page. On each page is a “Taste Of ____” section that has the highlights of the trip. If you have more interest and time, there are more albums below that which have more detail, including photos of the lodges.
