Organizing a Holiday with AVO Orange
Organizing a Holiday with AVO Orange was to put it simply the easiest holiday I have ever book. Erica was incredibly responsive on E-mail which in this day and age is so much less hassle than a phone call. She was very helpful, Enthusiastic, flexible and informative. We got all the information we required about location, seasons, wildlife and accommodation to make a well-informed decision about our holiday.
We are extremely excited, Would definitely recommend AVO Orange to anyone looking for an Adventure holiday!
Krueger, Swaziland, Mosambique - an african experience
We did AVOs first tour leading to Krueger, Swaziland and Mosambique with Erica, Ted and Wayne in Dec 2016.
The itinerary was amazing; from wonderful landscape, big wild animals to wonderful beaches we had a terrific tour.
Internet communication in advance with Erica was professional, quick and correct. On tour everybody always tried to help and to meet all expectations whenever some problems occurred. Even when some of the participants wanted to stay longer in one accomodation on Tofu beach AVO were so flexible to organize that.
The bus was comfortable, with good seats and AC, however it was not a Safari-Truck. So we could not go into the Parcs with our own vehicle but had to book the activity package resp. the extra tours.
Meals were good and always plenty, sometimes in restaurants , sometimes self prepared Braai.
You must know that eastern Africa is different, people tend to forget reservations, border contols take a lot of time, traffic is unforeseeable, roads are deviated all of a sudden...So you can´t compare to a European "Rundreise". It´s a long time on the road sometimes....usually 2 hours more than scheduled.
Customers should be prepared to help preparing meals, carrying their own luggage and packing the containers.
Some disappointment occurred because some accomodations had to be changed - especially places within the Krueger or the Hllane Parc with an own waterhole were changed to places outside the parcs, only situated in a nice landscape and some half an hour drive outside the parc. Others showed long faces because the evening safari could not take place or the ocean safari had to be delayed because of problems with the motor of the boat and booking problems. In the end most issues were solved somehow.
Since this was the first iteration of the tour we are sure that some of these difficulties can be avoided in following tours.
In the end: even if some things were other than expected, we enjoyed the holiday with AVO Orange!
