Hello Gelle,

Everything went very smoothly in every respect. There was only one glitch, and I did not mention it in my very positive review of your services. Despite your reminding me, I neglected to mention the name of your company in my review. Sorry about that. But everything else worked out very smoothly. The people at the lodge were very friendly. The food there was outstanding, as it was everywhere we went. The Safari people were incredible. It was such a great trip. We saw lots of wildlife on every single one of the eight drives.
