Q&A with Monique

  • Bush or Beach?  Definitely bush, nothing quite beats sipping on a G&T in the African bush at sunset.
  • Cruises or Trains?  Trains! I love the social side of this very relaxed form of travel.  
  • My tip for flying is ...  When travelling on smaller planes the flight can be bumpy so be sure to pack some water to sip, it's a great help to settle queasiness.  
  • Best Safari Destination?  The Sabi Sand Reserve in South Africa; it's the best place to see the elusive leopard.
  • Golf or Fishing?  Nothing beats Tiger Fishing on the mighty Zambezi River - it's a must for any adventurer.

"What can I say, we had an amazing holiday from the time we were met at the airport to being dropped back at Joburg to come home: every different aspect was just as wonderful! The organisation was spot on and such high quality accommodation we could not fault any part"
