loved their trip to South Africa

We contacted Evaneos because we didn't know how to arrange all the transportation in country. Annelie was wonderful. She arranged nice accommodations and interesting side trips. I described what we did in the previous paragraphs.

Best parts:
The safari was amazing but that was not the part planned by Evaneos. The lodging in Johannesburg was beautiful and the restaurant attached to the Inn was really good. Cape town was great. Table Mountain was very crowded. It took us 2hrs and 15 minutes standing in line before we reached the base of the cable car. Mark walked up the mountain in 1 1/2 hr. It was worth the wait. We loved the whale tour. The whales and their babies swam all around the boat. No binoculars necessary. We all loved the township tour. The local guide got us into a home and we bought lunch at another home that prepared sandwiches at 15 rand each. We stayed long enough to see some community theater before Germano had to take us to the airport. Our guide Germano was wonderful. The day we arrived in Capetown we were tired and grouchy and one of our group was upset about the lack of a bathroom in the upstairs room. Another member was very disabled and had her own needs. Germano was patient and tried his best to accommodate us. I would recommend him highly.
Worst parts:
Gerry got the days mixed up and instead of the day I thought we would have at the Apartheid museum we only got 2 hours. We got a late start and had to rush. Our tour of Soweto was just a quick drive through. I think the guide was not comfortable hanging around there. I would have liked to have more time in Capetown itself. The beach was lovely but, by the time we got back to Capetown it was early evening and we were tired. Mark and I walked down from the apartment twice and only made it to the beach in time to watch the sun go down. I would have loved more beach time. The apartment had a beautiful view but we would have liked a bathroom in each bedroom. Two of the bedrooms had their own bath but the people in the third bedroom had to access it by walking through their room.
