TRAVELER TESTIMONIAL

Hi Cheryl.

IT WAS AMAZING!!!!!!  Everything was great!  We loved all the places we stayed, especially Marataba.  That place is a MUST SEE! All the tour guides/drivers were so friendly and knowledgable about their cities.  They would go out of their way to help.  Duncan at Vic Falls was a favorite for sure!  

Thanks again so much for all your knowledge and help with the trip.  It was a perfect vacation!
