You did a great job

We are finally home after many hours of travel. My only complaint with you, is can’t you get closer to us? It really is a long trip.

On a serious note, I thought you did a great job, and your company was outstanding. Malcolm was a wonderful guide in Cape Town, and Reuben at Kings Pool was also fun to be with. We were very fortunate to have him to ourselves for a couple of days which really made it special as we talked about his family and the country in general.

We thought Wilderness did a great job. Transfers were timely; drivers gave us so much info and went the extra mile. We noticed they even own the planes and the lease at the resorts. It was so helpful for us that everyone spoke such perfect English.

In comparing the 2 camps, our preference is Kings Pool. More animals and easier travel. Vumbura would be a nightmare for anyone with back issues or any trouble with bumpy roads, and we had to go such distances to see some species. Both camps made special efforts to show us every possible animal and we had some incredible experiences. Momma Bee at Kings Pool is special and it is reflected in her “crew”. They were just more attentive to our relaxation and comfort.

Loved flying in the small planes but they have upgraded and nearly all are now the 14 passenger ones. The Land Rovers at the upscale camps are also new and very comfortable.
