SOUTH AFRICAN SPLENDOURS WITH KENYA
We undertook a trip to S. Africa and Kenya, organised by Vacations Exotica. Needless to say, we had a memorable and enjoyable trip. The Garden Route from Cape Town to Knysna was an exhilarating experience, as we covered miles of greenery and quaint peaceful towns along the bay. The tour manager was excellent, who took care of our every need. Without his guidance, it would have been tough getting on and off flights at various airports. Masai Mara, especially our stay at Keekorok Lodge was an unforgettable experience. We absolutely had no problem with food, the choice of hotels for stay and meals were impeccable. Thanks to Vacations Exotica! Keep it up.
SOUTH AFRICAN SPLENDOURS WITH KENYA
Greetings. It was a memorable trip this time to South Africa and Kenya.
The hotels we stayed in SA were excellent. Since we all adhered to the time schedule we were able to visit a lot of places in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Oudtshoorn etc. Our Tour Manager was very courteous & very good.
In Kenya, The hotel we stayed at Nairobi & in the Keekorok lodge was simply superb. Masai Mara experience really thrilled all of us. Overall the food was good.
On the whole, it was a fantastic trip, worth for the money spent. We will again knock the doors of Vacations Exotica soon for our next trip.

A marvel of nature and the most breathtaking wonder, Cape point is where Two Oceans Meet- the Atlantic Ocean with its cold waters on the west and the Indian Ocean with its warmer waters on the east.
Knysna is inhabited by the Khoi Khoi indigenous people! They made this part of South Africa their home after traveling from Botswana some 2,000 years ago.
