Anniversary trip – Cape Town, Simbavati, Mala Mala, Elephant Camp


We had a great time and want you to know how much we enjoyed spending time getting to meet you and appreciate all you did to make our 20th anniversary beautiful and special.  It will truly be a time we always remember!  

Cape Town is beautiful and Mark just the prefect guide for us.  I wish we had more time there.  After the lantern light private dinner at Simbavati, the ladies at Mala Mala came out at boma singing ‘Anniversary” and a cake with candles balanced on one of their heads (wow!);  then The Elephant Camp baked a cake with Happy 20th Anniversary on it.  We were feted every place we went!  The celebrations and animal encounters were all beyond belief – elegant giraffes and zebras walking past us and lions, leopards being relaxed with us so close.   Yes, it was hard for me to see them eating each other.  Mala Mala is so fine and we loved that experience with our ranger and their environment best of all.  The elephants at Vic Falls were a delight and I got to hug and kiss them to my heart’s content.  Of course, there was Sylvester and there is a pic below showing how I felt about him!

 Each reserve was gorgeous and our accommodations and the knowledgeable and welcoming staff were grand.  You made perfect choices for us.  Thank you so much.

With warm regards,
