Sue and Pete from Huddersfield heard about Equatours through a family member, who suggested that they contact us for a quote for their planned trip to South Africa and Zambia over Christmas and New Year.
Having already received a quote from another travel company that was way over their generous travel budget, they contacted us asking if we could help, and of course, we were delighted to assist with their holiday of a lifetime.
Sue and Pete wanted to visit Cape Town, take a tour of the Western Cape Winelands, go on safari, and end their trip at the magnificent Victoria Falls where they wanted to take a helicopter ride. Additionally, they asked if we could secure tickets for the England Cricket Tour of South Africa to complete the perfect package.
We got to work on a package that included all flights and transfers, a week in Cape Town, including those all-elusive cricket tickets, a full-day guided tour in the Winelands, a 3-night safari adventure in the beautiful Eastern Cape, and finally, a 2-night stay at Victoria Falls including a tour of the falls, a Zambezi Sunset Cruise, and a helicopter flight over Mosi-O-Tunya.
Sue and Pete were delighted with the holiday that we put together for them, and this is what they had to say about their trip:
About Cape Town
We’ve had a great time – loved the penguins today, and the cricket wasn’t bad yesterday, either! Thanks for everything.
About the Safari
We’ve seen 2 lions, a buffalo, loads of elephants and countless other creatures – fantastic. Accommodation great, too. Will send photos once back in the UK. Thanks for all your work sorting out this wonderful trip for us.
The last days of the holiday were just as fantastic as the rest. Our early morning drive to the airport for the flight to Livingstone was a game drive in itself, with our first giraffe sighting, various antelope, monkeys, and even a mongoose on a road right in Port Elizabeth.
The stay in Livingstone was amazing. The falls certainly had enough water to be really impressive and the helicopter flight was a true highlight – absolutely stunning views, as the weather was perfect. The evening cruise was fantastic, too. The hotel grounds were amazing in themselves – we hadn’t expected all the close encounters with giraffe, zebra, baboon, monkeys, etc. Fantastic.
So, once again, many thanks for organising all of this. We both feel this holiday ranks first among all our long-haul trips, as it truly was tailor-made with everything included that we could possibly have hoped for, and then more besides.
We were delighted to arrange such a special trip for Sue and Pete and look forward to being of service to them again soon.
