Everything went very well in the trip – including 2 gigantic chocolate birthday cakes I received on the day of my birthday !
The whole family enjoyed South Africa to the point that the kids have started to plan for a second trip in a few years, when they will be old enough to go for bush walks and go diving. We felt always safe and enjoyed meeting a lot of friendly and passionate people. Most of the times accommodation was beyond expectations. We particularly enjoyed our time in Kruger, at Rhino River lodge and at Phophonyane Falls. The kids also really enjoyed the friendliness of the owner of A day in Africa, in Sodwana Bay, as well as the possibility to interact with a few passionate divers with many interesting stories; this really compensated the fact that accommodation there was quite basic (at least for us parents!).
Thank you also for your practical advices: indeed the unabridged birth certificate is asked every time you go in and out and even if we had parents names written on the kids passport it could have raised issues with the airlines and at border control, so good you reminded us to have it with us.
Overall everything went very smoothly and this allowed us to really enjoy the trip! It will be always an important part of our family memories!
Thanks for everything,
