Trip to South Africa · by Karen P

Couple and pre-teen son doing a customized itinerary throughout Egypt and South Africa

Our 3-week trip to Egypt and South Africa in 2016 was a total success, thanks to Syndi's amazing ideas and logistics planning.

We've never done a cruise before, but the Nile River cruise on the Sonesta St. George was so memorable - especially waking up at dawn to the call to prayer and having a personal guide to the ancient sites. We loved the camel rides at the pyramids and were inspired by the humanitarian work in Cairo's Garbage City. The service from the tour operator was exceptional - for example, when our son forgot something on the cruise ship, staff found it, brought it to Cairo and delivered it to us on our way back home.

There are endless choices of safaris in South Africa, but Syndi recommended a mid-budget one, Africa On Foot, which included a walking safari in addition to the usual jeeps. We were thrilled to see the Big Five up close and personal and had fun meeting interesting people from around the world. The food was fabulous, too!

From tours to transportation, Syndi took care of every detail. All we had to do, was enjoy the experience!
