This was a safe, well thought through trip. There were no ‘surprises.’ Things happened as planned and plans for the following day were discussed the night before and then happened pretty much that way.
There was enough exposure to the real Africa in terms of people, culture, language, flora and fauna that you felt you had experienced the country. Difficulties were not glossed over or hidden either. The guides we had were very good. They all brought their own expertise to the table which was good. Keith, our guide in Kruger, was very good and knew a lot, but others were good also. David Nkosi brought a level of expertise to the trip that really set it apart. His acute vision, hearing and knowledge of the birds were extraordinary.
