It had long been my desire to travel to Africa for the safari experience; to see the big guys in their natural habitat. As I researched tours and waited for the right opportunity, I met Ntaba Tours owners, Stella & Robin Mountain, living in my own hometown of Frankfort, Kentucky. Their September 2007 tour appealed to me for two reasons. (1) Mr. Mountain would accompany the group; (2) The itinerary covered a large area of the country with a variety of sightseeing and educational opportunities, a wonderful overview for a first time traveler to South Africa.
The highlight of the trip, for me, was Kruger National Park, which “partially” satisfied my desire. I write “partially” because once in Kruger is not enough; one safari (in a lifetime) is not enough. This trip only intensified my desire to return again. An added bonus was the beauty of South Africa, especially the mountains and coastal areas.
Ntaba Tours did an excellent job in planning this trip – four and five star accommodation, very knowledgeable tour guides and safe drivers.
