    4.0 - Good

    Tour was generally what was described in all the information provided. Sunway did a great job of providing written material about the trip, so one should not have had too many surprises.Visited many, many parks, historic sites and scenic views. Liked the small group of 12 or less. Most accommodations were equal to or better than promised (although not all). All had a/c, which was greatly appreciated after long, hot days. Also had wifi often available, even though our brochure stated it was not. Nice to have two guides, both who were knowledgeable about wildlife, history and what to expect. The large, safari van worked well. Not perfect, but certainly what was needed for the trip.Van did have a/c, a great surprise to us. Overall very hot during the day but always cooled to a very comfortable evening temperature. Bugs and mosquitoes were minimal, and one could enjoy the cool evenings outdoors without suffering. If covering large areas and seeing many parks is what you are after, then this is a great trip. Hard, but it is Africa. Now the bad. Almost two-thirds of our promised accommodations were changed 30 days before departure.Some were improvements, but one (Matobo) was tented, not accommodated. Lived in a tent with minimal, shared showers and toilets. This should have not been allowed. Seems like poor planning or bait and switch. Travel van seats were very hard, and became very uncomfortable when travelling 6 to 8 hours per day. Had e-mailed Sunway and asked if we should pre-book optional tours. They replied that it was unnecessary and could be done upon arrival. Bad advice. Optionals in Victoria Falls and Okavango Delta were not available, and we either did without or re-scheduled for a less convenient time. Better planning is needed. Food prepared by the group was average at best. Seemed to be an effort to keep food costs down. Always plenty, but often mostly filler like pasta, maize or rice. Although different guides might result in a different outcome.Safari tours in the parks often started too late. By 11:00am most game has disappeared. Starting late meant the wildlife we saw was minimal considering the number of hours we spent looking. Sixteen days and we did not see the big 5. One sighting of lions, one close sighting of rhinos and none of leopards. In contrast, I took an individual trip back to Kruger after the Sunway tour ended, entered the park early and had close-up, big 5 sightings by 10:00am on both days we toured.The Khama Rhino experience was not good. Our safari van is large, is not 4 wheel drive and not able to make it through the deep sands of the park. Seems like getting stuck in the sand is a common problem, yet Sunway continues to not use the safari jeeps available at the park which are made for these conditions. Spent all of our time at the park pushing a large van out of the sand. No close sightings at all. Only a lot of tired, sweat drenched tourists. Even in September it was hot. Often over 40C (104F). Be prepared.

    Excellent tour for wildlife and scenery. Grace and Liberty were exemplary tour leaders and Grace's culinary skills kept us much better fed than expected. Thanks
