Both flights were good. Virgin Atlantic planes were virtually new 787-9, so seats comfortable, TV screens a good size and I think we had more leg room. Altogether VERY satisfactory.

I would have liked more detail about the Elephant House accommodation (Stable Cottage). I appreciate that the style goes with the area and access to Addo National Park but if given the choice I would have opted for an upgrade. However, overall this was a very memorable trip and the Safari at Pumba Lodge far surpassed our expectations.

Flew to Cape Town

Fantastic customer service. Easy to book, great prices and useful app. Hire car company (Europcar, SA) have added a fuel and fuel surcharge payment to our bill, despite the fact that we filled the car up on the way to the airport. They have done the same thing to my mother previously. Sounds like a regular scam. Please can you address this issue with them.

Everything worked well, and flights were reasonably on time. Jo'burg Immigration was a bit of an horror story, as three overseas flights landed in quick succession, and only about 4 desks were open. However, fully understand that this is all beyond your control.
