I had a great time and quite an experience for my first group trip ever. The safari was amazing - better than I could have envisaged. With a new adventure every day.  Andy has a huge range of contacts - everything from where to source quality food and suitable accommodation, to which places are the best to visit in any given area and who are the local best guides to take us.
