We had an amazing adventure with The Safari Company. Run professionally, like a well-oiled machine, thanks to Andy. Great food, fantastic accommodation and an experience where the people of Africa impacted upon me most and the animal encounters came secondary. A life-changing experience. We still miss Nico, the wonderful chef!!  Eeeeeeeeeee!
