Very well organised and executed tour. All the guides were excellent, each brought their own personal experience to the safari. The variety of the wildlife viewing was excellent with a choice of boat, walking, half-day and full-day tours. This gave us a chance to see many different animals and birds. Best of all, most were seen without seeing other Land Rovers and vehicles. Overall excellent, looking forward to the next one!
