Subject: RE: Vouchers - Vic Falls Trip - 26 Apr 18
Just a quick note to say thank you for a well organised trip.
All went smoothly and the requested accommodation at both the Vic Falls Hotel and Imbabala were granted. Plus the dietary requirements of no dairy at Imbabala were well taken care of by the chefs.
I particularly loved the Vic Falls hotel and pigged out on all the colonialism. Loved the cruise. The falls themselves were pumping and cameras had to be kept covered. High tea was good and also really enjoyed the breakfasts.
Staff at both were very friendly.
Our guide, Richard, at Imbabala was one of the best we’ve ever had in terms of his lovely nature (a real gentleman) and knowledge of flora and fauna, including bird identification (we saw about 80 odd birds and could have done more but didn’t want to bore the other guests too much). Richard organised breakfast on the boat on our last morning for the eight of us left in camp.

Thank you for helping us plan our trip to Vic Falls. We had an incredible time and they made my birthday extra special with a complementary cake.
Everything was perfectly organised and the service we received from the Hotel was just outstanding. I have attached a few pics - Liso is the one with dreads 🙈😊
Until we plan the next trip, stay well.

Today we returned to Australia from South Africa and I have to write and congratulate you and your company for the superb organisation of our tour to the Victoria Falls, Everything just fell in place, the Kingdom Hotel was terrific, the Falls spectacular and at each collection point, your driver was there,with our names, ready to take us to the specified destination.
There were no hidden or unexpected charges, unlike one of the Game Parks we attended in SA, and all the fees associated with the tour were exactly as quoted by Maplanga Africa Group.
Once again, thanks for the excellent service and especially your efficiency in helping us get to the great Victoria Falls..well done!!
Cheers for now and all the best to you and your team,

I just HAVE to add my little bit. I wasn’t involved in the organization at all and was hesitant to think we were doing something different from our usual road trip/self-catering vibe. WOW – was I bowled over by the organization (how on earth do they know who to collect when??!), the accommodation and most of all the people. Toka Leya was especially amazing….I was truly sad to leave, even after only 2 nights. Thembi is a star and our guide, Histon (like in Piston LOL) was so knowledgeable, organized, accommodating and just generally a star. Kennedy at Ichingo just laughs all the time and John on The Princess is a gentle, friendly, organized team leader, what with all the manipulation of smaller boats.
Our sightings of birds, reptiles and mammals had me with binoculars constantly at the ready and Bryan constantly with his finger on the camera button.
Many thanks for your planning and organization! I would love to go to the migration, but maybe Mfuwe in Zambia first? We’ll see…..have to talk to my bank manager i.e. Bryan Buck!

Dear Sir / Madam
I wish to notify you of the excellent service Megan O'Connor has provided to me and other members of our small group of travellers in planning our upcoming trip to South Africa in April 2018.
From my first inquiry with Megan in April 2017 to finalising our trip preparations she has been excellent in suggesting safari lodges etc and arranging all our internal flights in South Africa, road transfers and also our bookings at various safari lodges and resorts. She managed all our queries and requests promptly and efficiently and at late notice was able to arrange for another friend to join our travelling party.
Megan is a wonderful representative for Maplanga Africa Group and it would be appreciated if you could forward my comments to her manager and also to Megan.
I wish I could get such an efficient and friendly response from other companies I deal with both here in Australia and overseas.
Our small party is looking forward to enjoying a great holiday in South Africa and we feel that Megan should be joining us as she has helped us so much in planning it.
