We had an amazing two weeks with Ilios Travel. The variety of activities kept our interest and we looked forward in anticpation to each day. Our guides, Walter and Ashram were professional and knowledgeable and their passion for their country shone through. The hotels we stayed in were of high standard and enhanced our stay. I for one enjoyed the meals! Since we returned to the UK we have shown our photos to many friends and highly recommend this trip. Thank you for this wonderful introduction (re-introduction in my case) to South Africa.
