The trip was awesome. From the airport pick up to our guides escorting some of us to the border so we could leave early (corona :( )
We saw so many things and a great variety. We were safe and very well fed. Moonya? kept us happy and healthy with delicious mushroom sauce and yummy peanut cabbage. There was always a vegetarian option.
Becky keep us safe on the road and was an excellent driver and helped me with my tent.
Gift keep us organized and informed with a great sense of humour. His love of Africa always shone through. I did find some parts a bit slow. I did not really enjoy so many idle afternoons but some in the group did.The truck should have curtains and some small repairs to the seats but was pretty comfortable for the most part. A source of power in the back would make life much easier.
Campsites were almost all excellent. I was in a great group and the three weeks flew by.
I cannot say enough good things about our crew. A great trip.”
