Description

The Tsitsikamma Canopy Tour takes place in the magnificent Tsitsikamma indigenous rainforest. Many of the platforms are built around giant Outeniqua Yellowwood trees that are up to 700 years old! Standing within the crown of these giants and looking down at the lush forest floor 30 metres below, is an amazing experience. The scenery and birdlife is spectacular and professional guides ensure guests safety while keeping them informed about interesting features of the forest ecology. They might be fortunate enough to spot a pair of Knysna Loeries or the brilliant red plumage of the elusive Narina Trogon.

Wonderful guides in South Africa

By: GigiV


Reviewed on: 01 Jul 2015

Our travel agent worked with Abercrombie & Kent for our South Africa trip and we could not be happier. Upon our arrival in Johannesburg, we were met at the jetway by an airport representative who whisked us through customs. From that point on, we were always accompanied by a superb guide, and never had to make any arrangements for ourselves. In Johannesburg, our guide Lucky gave us an excellent learning experience about apartheid, including the Apartheid Museum and walking us through Soweto, the neighborhood where he lives. We visited a school that won a CNN Heroes award, very inspiring. In Capetown, our guide Penny who was a former history teacher, gave us her informed perspective on growing up as a white woman during apartheid. She went to great lengths to show us all over the city and then we spent a day driving down to Cape Point. Visiting the penguin beach and the botanical gardens, as well as the point, were wonderful. The level of service A&K provides is unparalleled!

A&K South Africa was superb. We were greeted at the airport by Sipokazi with a warm smile, and she helped us not only to our hotel but stopped to allow us to exchange currency on the way. We even got a welcome gift which we were not expecting but absolutely loved! Our tour guide, Sam, took us on two full day tours around Cape Town. His knowledge and ability to educate us on every aspect of South African history, culture and life was remarkable. He was also very flexible and allowed us to adjust the itinerary. Both lunch restaurants were superb (and some of the best meals we had our entire trip!). We had an absolute ball and enjoyed every minute of our adventures with Sam! On the return to the airport, Sipokazi took the time to ensure we were checked in and to security before she left us. Could not have asked for better service. We were really impressed and hope to have the opportunity to use A&K South Africa again!

Outstanding! Guides, accommodations, animals were above expectations. Chiefs camp was especially nice. Next time we will leave out the times in Johannesburg and Cape Town and allow more time in the bush. Special recognition should go to our guide “Chief” in Chiefs camp. He really deserves it!

We have used A&K repeatedly over the years. I would say that where is Zambia is concerned, our itinerary could have been better planned. Just weeks before our departure, that had been planned in excess of 18 months prior, we were advised that he A&K sold their camp. This resulted in a change of venue that greatly inconvenienced us and took an entire day of travel to reach a remote area where the wildlife viewing was anemic. The food at Liawa plains was substan.We had long drives on soft sand roads. The materials we received for the camps indicated that we would see giraffe only to learn at each camp there are no giraffe in this area of Zambia. Guides and staff made up for other disappointments. While we did see animals, it took a search effort of countless hours spent in the Jeep. That is not what your materials indicate. At Shumba camp you advertise that we would see lions from our deck. We spent an entire day on the plaines hunting down the only pride that still exists there.

Most of the trip was excellent but the Shumba Camp was over rated. The accommodations were not up to par with the other camps (Sausage Tree and King Lewanika) with Sausage Tree by far the best. The camp manager at Shumba was arrogant and I’m surprised the staff tolerates him.
